It serves as the first module of a larger 200-hr training curriculum and is an essential foundation for future study.

Fusing modern scientific exercise physiology and dynamic flow practices with the ancient wisdom of the yoga tradition, this comprehensive training will teach you:

  • Effective, safe Yoga for modern bodies
  • Anatomy & physiology of Hatha Yoga
  • Teaching methodology & finding your voice as a teacher
  • Yoga philosophy & history, from ancient sources to modern interpretation

The module features personalized tuition from an experienced teaching team, plus REGULAR CLASSES (2x/week) AT SHANTI VIDA for the duration of the training.

Graduates may count it towards gaining the RYT-200 certification with Yoga Alliance, the world’s largest and most well-known yoga teacher licensing body, or towards the Continuing Education requirements for current teachers.

 WHO IS THIS INTENSIVE TRAINING FOR?

If you are a yoga practitioner interested in deepening your practice or moving toward teaching, or someone already teaching who wants to take their transmission of yoga to another level, this will be a formative and transformational experience. Immerse yourself in daily practice, learning not just what to practice but how and why, with experienced and inspiring teachers.

You will leave this training with a comprehensive understanding of yoga and how to make a yoga practice effective for modern bodies, on physical, physiological, energetic and mental levels; how to lead classes with safety, confidence and authenticity; plus a deeper personal practice supercharged by daily practices that will inspire and invigorate you!
