    The specially designed practical anatomy classes are the backbone of the alignment classes. You will learn the following in the anatomy classes.
    • Basic concepts of functional anatomy and physiology related to movement.
    • Application of anatomical principles to yoga practice (mechanics of yoga asana, its benefits and contraindications, healthy patterns of movement, etc.).
    • Applied anatomy with a significant emphasis on the skeletal system, muscular system, connective tissue and movements of the body's major joints.
    • Muscular and skeletal differences i.e., compression, tension, and proportion and orientation theory.
    • Study different body regions: The foot, knee, hips, spine, and shoulder.
    You will receive classes on yoga philosophy and history. During the Sanskrit lecture, you will learn to pronounce poses in Sanskrit and count. Besides, we will watch a yoga documentary. Yoga philosophy also incorporates the concepts of the subtle body and the spiritual energies of Prana and Kundalini moving through the nadis and chakras. You are free to ask questions related to spirituality, meditation or any other inquiry related to your spiritual quest.
    The best way to learn is to teach" – Frank Oppenheimer
    Principles of demonstration, observation, assisting and correcting, verbal instructions, teaching styles, the qualities of a teacher, voice projection, floor presence, planning and structuring a class, alignment and hands-on-adjustment, dealing with injuries and safety precautions, business aspects of teaching yoga, ethics and much more.
    During the course, you will receive weekly three-hour workshops on alignment and adjustment techniques for the main postures from different asana categories. Other seminars will also include modifications, advance variations, good use of props, and hands-on adjustments practice.
    In this class, your teachers will guide you through how to develop your career as a yoga teacher, marketing strategies, advertising and PR, ethics in the yoga business, and building a network with other yoga teachers, schools, studios and retreats, among other related topics, example "How to start teaching yoga anywhere".

    Yoga philosophy
    Founder of Tbilisi Yoga Community
Kati came to yoga at age 16 with poor posture after a minor car accident. Without sporting experience, yoga seemed to her a real challenge, but the goal was to get rid of the displacement of the vertebrae to become more enduring and balanced.

"This is how I got to know yoga therapy. Over the years, my practice evolved to include hatha yoga, and I embarked on my journey to become a certified Yoga Flow teacher through the Saint-Petersburg School of Yoga.

In 2010, I went on an endless journey. Started in Asia, where I studied yoga with different masters. Then took a 200H TTC in Yoga and Pranayama in India and a 100H TTC in Prenatal and Postnatal yoga in Spain. Additionally, I obtained certification as a Yin yoga teacher. Among my most profound influences were my experiences with Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India, Forrest yoga under the guidance of Ana Forrest (USA)."

For the last 16 years, Kati has organized a several workshops and yoga retreats worldwide, including India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Sweden, Greece, Russia, and Georgia.

She is the visionary behind the Tbilisi Yoga Community, established in 2019, and the proprietor of two studios: Tbilisi Yoga Loft and Tbilisi Yoga Villa.

"I firmly believe in the uniqueness of each individual and the significance of every moment. Through my classes, I strive to create a safe space where students can unlock their potential with confidence and love."

the 200 hour yoga teacher training
  • Student:
    Can I teach yoga with a 200-hour certification?
    Yes. Generally, a 200-hour certification is the worldwide accepted standard for teaching yoga.
  • Student:
    Do I need to register as RYT 200?
    It is not mandatory to register as RYT-200 with Yoga Alliance (or any other yoga teacher federation) for you to teach. You can teach just with a 200-hour certification. In some countries, however, registering as RYT 200 might increase your credibility if you are looking for a job.
  • Student:
    Are all 200-hour courses the same?
    Not at all; some 200-hour courses don’t cover even a fraction of other courses. While choosing a course, it is essential to examine the curriculum and research if the training suits your needs and expectations.
  • Student:
    Where course will take a place?
    Classes will be held at Tbilisi Yoga Villa (Saburtalo branch), on Otar Oniashvili, 37
