The Training

Imagine it like living & practicing with two yogis tucked away in the forest for a month

(instead of attending a school).

Wisdom says ‘I am nothing’.
Between the two, my life flows.”

– Nisargadatta Maharaj

Instead of an overly gymnastic approach, our classical style of Hatha/Kundalini Yoga focuses extensively on Stillness of Body & Mind in each posture to be recognized as the source and background of our being. This safe approach allows for deep self-inquiry, profound insights and lasting inspiration.

Major course elements:

  • Authentic postures & gestures (asana & mudra)
  • Expansive breathing practices (pranayama)
  • Powerful locks (bandha)
  • Simple, yet effective age-old purification techniques (kriya)
  • Comprehensive talks & discussions on the various aspects, stages and practices of Yoga, featuring Ashtanga / The Eight Limbs of Yoga aka Raja Yoga
  • Insightful Practicums (teaching rehearsals)
  • Heartful chanting circles with Ceremonial Mayan Cacao (Bhakti Yoga / The Yoga of Devotion)
  • Guided meditations (Advaita / Self-Inquiry)
  • Anatomy and physiology background knowledge including how to properly achieve and correct the alignment of each posture as well as their individual health benefits
  • Personal  guidance along the way
  • A valuable 4-day Intensive Module on a different topic in each training: Bhakti, Meditation retreat, Ayurveda (kindly check our calendar to see which course includes which module)
  • 1-day workshop on Tantra & Relationships (no nudity, of course)

All this will be completed with valuable insights on how to kick-start (or upgrade) your career as a successful and inspiring yoga teacher:

  • tailoring your offerings to potential clients
  • ethical yoga marketing
  • student & venue management
  • web design and advertisement guidance
  • our insights & experiences from social media exposure
