300 Hour Teacher Training in Guatemala & Vermont

NOW you are ready to immerse yourself in the practice of yoga and live in it. As we integrate into the philosophies that enrich our living we begin to observe directly through contact with like-minded practitioners. If one is born with all the tools to obtain a state of yoga then certainly being around others with the same goal allows for certain discovery of that spark within.

The Advanced Training will take you deeper into the integration of practice to enrich the living experience. Even though we commonly view Hatha Yoga as being a physical practice involving multiple styles it is a distinct science referred to as Shadanga Yoga. This distinct path focuses particularly on prana and awakening the divine energy.

Essentially we practice a way to develop that burn for living, teaching and creating.

Comprised of three distinct modules – JOURNEY TO SELF, FIRE OF PURIFICATION, and SONG WITHIN – that fulfill 300 hours of Advanced Training and are a registered program with Yoga Alliance.

Living Your Practice: A 3 day Study in Miami Beach, FL

The traditional application of Hatha Yoga is to live or work one-to-one with the teacher. Only through direct contact can the teacher measure the development of the student’s practice. This is where we set down all of our expectations of yoga that have been represented in popular culture and explore the Self and maintenance of true inner harmony.

Removing your practice from the daily classroom experience allows emphasis on expanding the Self to directly affect or bring about the world in which you would like to walk, inner sustainability and use of the non-technique. The student becomes the teacher developed in a way.
