Who should attend this course?
- Anyone with more than 6 months of regular yoga practice: You don't need to be "an Expert Yogi," nor do you have to be able to handstand or do the splits. People are at all levels in every training and having each and every student be at different places in their yoga journey - and having fun - is what makes each course unique.
- Yogis interested in learning more about the philosophy and history of yoga: Yoga is much more than just physical activity. Here you can explore the spiritual side of yoga; learn about breath work; discuss the ethical and moral foundations of our yoga practice; focus on a daily meditation routine; and more.
- Yogis keen on improving their practice.Not everybody joins to become a teacher. This training can provide the ability to simply focus on your own practice, as there are both multiple classes each day, but also in-depth workshops examining the poses we learn.
- Those with an open mind: Go in without any expectation of what the course (or you) "should" be and you might be surprised with what you experience.
- Anyone who wants to meet others who are also focused on their yoga. Teacher training provides a great opportunity to both meet and share a unique experience with like-minded people.
- Yoga Teachers wanting to expand their knowledge: Ground yourself with a comprehensive course, covering all the different aspects of Yoga - from the physical postures, to it's history; the spiritual and philosophical foundations of our practice, to our sacred lineage; and move from the theoretical to the practical with a solid foundation to share with your students.
