Greetings of Peace from Yogaville!
Thank you for your interest in our Intermediate Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program. For more than 40 years, students from all over the world have come to participate in our residential Teacher Training programs. This letter contains the program information: curriculum, daily schedule, accommodations and an application form. After reading this material, if you have any questions or require additional information, please feel free to contact us.
Intermediate Integral Yoga Hatha Teacher Training offers an opportunity to profoundly enrich your understanding and practice of Integral Yoga. Graduates of this program will gain a deeper understanding of essential Yoga practices and be able to teach them greater clarity and detail.
• Learn important additional asanas, their benefits, and how to safely guide students into and out of the poses
• Explore making skillful sequencing choices and adaptations that will enhance your classes
• Gain a fuller understanding of Prana and pranayama techniques
• Study the Bhagavad Gita, which expounds the philosophy and practices of the four main paths of Yoga (Karma, Raja, Bhakti, and Jnana Yoga).
WHAT MAKES INTEGRAL YOGA ® UNIQUE?
Integral Yoga is a complete science that cultivates and maintains the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of the individual. The non-competitive approach and meditative exploration of the Integral Yoga practices create an indrawn awareness that allows each student to reconnect with deeper and more subtle aspects of being. Our comprehensive certification programs provide a strong foundation for personal and spiritual development, an appreciation for nurturing a personal practice, and the skills to become a knowledgeable and professional Yoga teacher. The Integral Yoga training process fosters the teacher’s sensitivities to help them create a safe environment for their students that allows them to realize their potential, enhance self-respect, and learn to be of greater service to others.
WHY A RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM?
The most effective teaching comes from direct experience. Our residential programs are designed to offer you the experience of living the teachings of Yoga and to present the necessary tools that will enable you to pass these great teachings on to others. During your stay, you will immerse yourself in the yogic lifestyle and transform your body, mind and spirit. Our residential programs offer a supportive and nurturing environment for practice and study away from the distractions of everyday life.
The program begins on June 18, 2017, starting with registration at 4 pm and ends after Hatha class at 9 am on July 9, 2017.
The daily schedule is very full; it is designed to help you fully realize the benefits of the Yoga practices and to offer you the optimum environment in which to study and learn. Each day begins with meditation at 6:00am, followed by a Hatha Yoga class. During the day, you will have training courses, workshops, practice sessions, a noon meditation at the beautiful LOTUS Temple and some free time. This schedule covers six days and five nights a week. You are expected to stay at the Ashram for the entire time to successfully complete the program.
The curriculum includes the following:
