Our Training marks the course as a comprehensive presentation of yoga – as therapy, as a vehicle to promote health, and a discipline providing genuine well-being. The information covered includes the requirement of asana, pranayama, meditation, and yoga philosophy. You will learn about physical anatomy, and take sessions in therapeutic touch, asana alignment, individual adjustments, and much more.
The program that we put together goes beyond asana and alignment. Each of our teachers explored disciplines and energy systems outside of yoga, including energy-work, reiki, bodywork, movement based meditations – to mention some. All of us have a vast background in different disciplines and the energetic field of this knowledge flows through each of our teachings, which infuses and enriches our training and your experience.
As Yoga is a path of self-exploration and self-development, it is important for us to give you diverse tools and sufficient time to explore your Self. Thus, we have set aside 5 weeks instead of the customary 4. This way, we are able to share more practices and lead you to a space that allows processing, integrating, and embodying the given material.
The Spirit of Yoga is for those seeking a program of greater depth, meaning, and authenticity, be it your first yoga TTC or a desire to upgrade your knowledge and practice. Either way, we will be here to support you on your journey.
Our 5-weeks’ program would allow you to explore and find out “who am I, and what do I want to offer or share with the world?” Authenticity and the space for transformation is at the core of our curriculum. We do not intend to provide you with a teaching style, but rather help you discover your personal gifts and celebrate them with you. You will obtain a strong base and knowledge about asana, pranayama and the human body. Nevertheless, Yoga, for us, goes way beyond the physical experience. We will empower you to trust yourself to be authentic, know your strengths, and embrace your weaknesses. We would like for you to be able to facilitate with integrity, and hold a space that would allow others to go deep and explore the particles of the Self through energetic practices and processes that lead to expanded states of consciousness.
Our goal is to help you achieve a comfort level while teaching and standing in front of people. Our program allows participants to start teaching from the first week onwards, as opposed to other programs that include the actual teaching during the last week.
In addition, we will guide you to free your voice and project it with ease and comfort.
Through much combined experience in training modules, we have created a program that goes above and beyond teaching yoga. Also, we integrate and offer a variety of transformational tools for an exemplar teaching style.
