5. Student rules at the teacher training course.
Rishi Patanjali highlighted 10 key codes of conduct which are an integral part of yoga practice. Students are required to understand and apply these codes while in Tapasya Yoga school (participants will become familiar with the code upon arrival at the school). Compliance with the moral norms of behavior during training will be taken into account through the course of examinations.
Discipline is an integral part of the training program, so the schedule of the day must be strictly observed. Disrespect for discipline and the daily routine may result in early release from the course without reimbursement.
Absence from class without prior warning to one of the teachers will be considered a gross violation of the rules.
Participants who arrive late to their session may not be permitted entry to the room after the start of class.
In order not to disrupt the timetable and the time allotted for each topic of the course, we have allocated special days for questions / answers. Student should write down all questions and adhere to the allotted time to ask questions. If the issue is important for the current practice being executed, you may make your request during class.
Before signing up for the course, each student instructor needs to understand that the process of teaching and learning methods may be different from those encountered in Western countries.
According to ancient texts of yoga, the student should be like an empty vessel to be filled with new knowledge coming from the teacher. However, a vessel may not be suitable due to contamination (emotional and mental confusion), an overturned state of being (not receptive of instruction), or leaking (failure to retain transmitted wisdom). Students must be like empty and clean vessels, ready to study yoga anew from the original source.
