This program intends to give birth to a new breed of yoga teachers. Participants that will emerge out of this program will have experienced what yoga is really about, will have achieved a significant shift in consciousness and will be in a position to inspire students and practitioners from different parts of the world to join into this consciousness revolution and have positive and meaningful impact on them while experiencing abundance at all levels.
The trainees will receive a certification 200Hr Yoga Alliance accepted throughout the world and will be capable to lead a class of students in all the different types of asanas, pranayama, meditations, mundras, bhandas and sound healing. However, this program will also be ideal for people that do not seek to practice yoga as a profession but who would like to go deeper in their own practice and to experience a shift in consciousness that will empower them for all the different aspects of their lives.
Further to successful completion of the program and further practice, candidates will also have the possibility to receive additional certifications to enable them to take part and lead training of new teachers in this conscious form of yoga.
The program will last for three weeks of intense work after which their first certification will be granted. However, the attendee will continue to be supported by the teachers for 6 months when their final certification will be offered. It is important for the student to feel supported in his/her first steps and in the application of the tools that were offered to them. Over this period of 6 months, participants will be able to ask questions and will be supported with extra materials, coaching and mentoring.
