200hr Yoga Teacher Training immersion
Koh Phangan, Thailand
The next Level 1 training in Thailand will be in April 2019. Registration will open in April 2018.
Overview & Curriculum
A comprehensive, integrative and transformational journey onto the dharmic path of teaching yoga.
During our 4 week residential program, trainees will receive 200 hours of intensive training with practical teaching experience beginning in week one. Steadily progressive and evermore challenging practicums will build your confidence and help you find the power of your authentic voice. Along the way you will receive nurturing feedback and personalised coaching to support your blossoming into a strong, self-assured and skillful teacher.
Our training features both powerful, strengthening Brahmana (energising, heating) and deeply nurturing Langhana (soothing, cooling) forms of yoga asana; not only to stay balanced and energized in your own practice, but so you have a variety of tools and techniques to offer your future students & clients. We are carriers of the lineage of TKV Desikachar & Mark Whitwell that requires us to adapt Yoga to suit individual needs. All practices incorporate Breath, Movement, Sound, Silence & Stillness.
A typical Brahamana class includes chanting, pranayama, kriyas, bandha, dynamic flowing practice sometimes with sun salutations, sometimes with the very glorious Dragon Dance, inversions, strengthening and core work leading into quiet spaces, psoas release, and deep relaxation. There is an element of self practice each day where we give personal attention, adjustments and assistance to help trainees with their own practice.
A typical Yin practice includes gentle pranayama, joint articulation, gentle, simple movements entirely enveloped by the breath with meditation, toning, mantra, pranayama techniques and deep relaxation. This is the Yoga of Intimacy and the experience is incomparable to 'normal' Yoga.
