There are many benefits in undertaking additional yoga training, and these are not necessarily all related to the end result of becoming a teacher. Many of our trainees are interested foremost in the deepening of their own practice through a yoga retreat, and in doing so, learning about the many aspects of yoga, gaining a new perspective on their practice, and then ultimately teaching either full or part time.
When I ask people about their motivation for becoming a teacher, they often say that it is because it has helped them so much in their personal life. So, whether yoga has helped them get over some physical problem, removed certain aches and pains they had, assisted in a speedy recovery from an accident, or relieved a psychological imbalance like depression, they have a very noble inspiration: to share the gift they have been given and become yoga teachers themselves.
We have handpicked several magical locations for your personal development yoga retreat and yoga teacher training courses. The first two are beautiful, serene properties near the beach on the isle of Korcula and the isle of Losinj in the Adriatic Sea, while our third, and slightly more distant, location is our country retreat in the Western Himalayas, in Kullu Valley, India. All the locations offer the perfect setting in which to relax and connect with your inner self. Other locations for our retreats and teacher training programmes include: the Algarve in Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, Bali and Costa Rica.
