Embark on a truly unique adventure of self-discovery, personal growth and profound transformation. There will be anatomy and posture clinics twice per week with lots of opportunities for inquiries. Your daily practice will include asana, pranayama, bandha and mantra. 


What makes this training truly special and unique is the personal development element. The transformational voicework, conscious communication, mindfulness, circle work and teaching practicums are powerful, special and truly transformative. 


Aside from the powerful and effective yoga techniques, you will also focus on consistent deep self-inquiry, philosophical discussion and encouragement to find the true power of your unique voice. This will help you connect deeply with yourself and others and give you the skills to weave meaningful themes through your classes. 


The dedicated and skilled instructors will also pass forward the lineage of all asana practices that have a strong focus on breath, sensory awareness, and safe structural alignment.


The course leaders are supremely proud of and confident in this aspect of the program and it is often why people report this training to indeed be profoundly life changing. 


This teacher training package includes Teacher Training Manual & certificate upon graduation, 26 nights accommodation, 3 delicious vegetarian meals per day Monday to Friday & Sunday, and internet access in the resort's public areas.

Syllabus

HOURS + TOPICS

This yoga school is known for it’s highly experiential and profoundly transformational teacher training programs that not only pass on the lineage of Krishnamacharya, Desikachar & Mark Whitwell, but feature radical self inquiry, transformational voice work, hands on breath work, kirtan, conscious communication, mindfulness and business & leadership skills training.  The program is designed to help you unveil your true authenticity, deepen connections and empower you to be the finest teacher you can be.

Your daily practices will include Asana, Pranayama & Meditation. You will focus on teaching asana is breath, sthira/sukha and felt sense awareness.  You will learn balance yang strengthening and energising practices with introspective, yin, nervous system settling practices and include posture clinics, counterposes, sequencing tools, partner & hands on work and will give you many tools to adapt yoga to suit your own needs and the needs of your students. 


You will learn the anatomy and physiology of breath and how to use breathing techniques to shift and balance your energy.  As well as practicing and teaching asana as a moving pranayama, you will learn many stand alone pranayama techniques and have the opportunity to become comfortable incorporating this most valuable aspect of yoga into your own classes.  Techniques include, Uddiyana, Agnisara & Nauli Kriya, abdominal breathing, the three-part breath, ujjayi pranayama, brahmari, bhastrika, anuloma viloma, dauti, kapalabhati & chitali pranayama.  We incorporate the use of sound, mantra, verbalization and singing - all forms of pranayama in themselves.


Meditation is like sleep, you cannot ‘make’ yourself do it, but you can create the correct conditions for meditation to arise.  We share this in practices of asana, pranayama and meditation as one seamless process and also with many mindfulness and felt sense awareness techniques. Guided meditation will be explored, including creative visualization, meditation using yantra, mantra, ideation, the chakra system and pratyahara or withdrawal of the senses from external objects. Students will be guided in choosing a mantra for meditation.


The approach to anatomy is as an embodied practice.  This means you will be guided in a somatic journey of your own body and it’s wonderful uniqueness.  We look at compression versus tension in the body and why some people will never be able to achieve certain poses - and we celebrate  the freedom that comes from this understanding. You will gain a great understanding of the main joints of your own body and learn how to spot differences in your students and adapt yoga asana to suit them.  Anatomy of breath is also covered and the nervous system, particularly poly vagal theory and nervous system regulation for anxiety and other common issues.

The approach to practicums is highly refined and highly effective. You will begin teaching in the first days of the training and with coaching from the team and support from your peers, you will gradually be challenged deeper to bring out your authentic voice as a teacher and to gently push the edge of your comfort zone so by the time you come to be certified, you are absolutely ready to get started.


Certification

Upon completion of the training you will receive your RYT200 yoga teacher certification. The yoga center is a Registered Yoga School RYS200, RYS300, RYS500 and RPYS with Yoga Alliance which is highly recognized internationally.
