The yoga teacher training that we offer provides high level technical skill and cutting edge anatomical education, while at the same time offering a profound, life changing and transformative experience. The courses and meditation retreats take place in two idyllic resort locations, ensuring maximum peace and tranquillity and allowing you to focus on learning.
Our approach to yoga training has at its core the teachings of the eight limbs of yoga, Ashtanga Raja Dhiraja, including Vinyasa as well as Hatha, combined with the ancient esoteric systems for the awakening of our inherent Shakti, the energy within.
While providing a strong and sound base in asana, mudra, bandha and kriya it probes beyond mere physical practice into the world of the spiritual aspect of yoga and meditation and works on awakening the subtle energies within ourselves.
Our intensive yoga teacher training and meditation retreats are a unique, profoundly transformational and personal experience that is designed according to the ancient gurukula educational system, which integrates the student’s daily life and personal practice into the yoga training. For four intense weeks of ashram living, students strengthen their own yoga practice through self-discipline and probing into the nature of mind, body and spirit. We also help our trainees in the development of a firm foundation of teaching skills, so they will then be able to take these skills straight into their own classes, teaching others intuitively and with confidence. We may also offer job opportunities to graduates as and when they arise, either on our own retreats and teacher training courses, or yoga jobs at other institutions.
Yoga teacher training courses provides a fantastic opportunity to awaken or deepen our yoga practice, meet old and new friends, and to be a part of the global yoga community, which is growing each day. The best part is: we get to understand that everything we need is already within us. The practices can lead us into accessing our gifts and beauty within, which then can blossom forth and inspire others. The experience provides a great way to find long lasting happiness, peace and the ability to share the yogic lifestyle with others.
