ABOUT THE CERTIFICATION.
This is a very important and delicate topic for us and for the “Yoga World” so I will give you 2 kinds of answer one spiritual and the other material, and of course this is just our humble way to feel and think about it
Let’s start from the gross to the subtle as in the yoga class.
At the end of the program you will get a diploma from our Yoga School (COMUNIDAD OM SHANTI) that is register as a Foundation for different projects of social service, with all the documents of the teachers proving that they had been trained in the Yoga Science.
we are certified by the most recognized yoga institution around the world called Sivananda Asharam and Bihar Yoga Bharathi, being the presidents of this places Swami Sivananda, paramahamsa Satyananda saraswati, Swami Niranjananda saraswati, who thought me personally The science of yoga, meditation and community living which signed a document in which certifies i can teach too.
Im sharing this with you not in a form of ego, but as to make you feel comfortable and safe about the place you are about to come.
Before this I want to make very clear that we are not related or registered with Yoga Alliance by any means and that we are not responsable of getting the certification with them, this is a completely different process, that every individual must follow after any teachers training that partakes, of course if the school is certified by yoga alliance is easier to get the certification,
we are not, this doesn’t mean that you can’t get it, some of our old students and teachers did.
Now let’s change a little bit the lent and the focus, where the real diploma it’s you, not a piece of paper, and of course I understand exactly what you mean by the society closing doors because lack of some kind of registration,, but I have good news for you, that closed door is a gift from life in this way you continue searching for another door that is yours, that nobody can close for you because is always there open to us and to everyone and to everything to flow in the river of life.
Just we need to tune our selves, desires, thoughts wishes with the universe ones and all the doors will open.
In India they say that Ganesh is a strong force within us like the elephant that removes the obstacles, but is the one that also put obstacles in the way when he/she perceives that you are not going in the right way.
I realized that is about ,my confidence, that is about myself if i really want to make my dream of becoming a yoga teacher and to spread the word of love, there is nothing can stop me, even if i need to teach in the park, on the beach, wherever .
This is the Yoga we want to transmit, one that can be apply to the daily life at any moment, of course after the 200 hrs Yttc all the students will be more than ready to give a very nice class in front of many people, levels, etc,
Apart from these daily activities there is many more practices like Shatkarmas, body cleansing, this normally we do on the nature where we stay camping on the side of a beautiful river/ waterfalls/ sea etc.
we do have tents , different sizes and are for sharing with 1 2 3 nobody knows sometime we need to do the hole opening ceremony inside of a tent like 15 because of the rain and weather conditions, was lovely but we decided since that time that depens on the weather we do the 3 day visit to nature or not, for example this yttc we are not going 3 days, just a full day close by, but in the YTTC of January must probable of weather is kind we go to a private jungle with a big river that conects with the sea, in there during 3 days do many activities in the nature, music, meditations, and a very special practice called Shatkarmas, Body Cleansing and very recomended for yoga practice,
also we request if someone can bring a private tent or 2 people, we will thanks a lot and even we can buy from you afterwards when you leave, becuause in here we do need and sometimes many people comes so some of us needs to sleep right next to the fire or in a hamac which is not bad at all
PRICE OF THE YTTC
the price of the training is 700usd dollars (just for the teachings) and for the room in the community 150 usd dollars for shared room( just 8 places ).
Others must rent their own place outside the community according to needs and Budget (for this process Omshanti is not responsable but for sure we will give you some recomendations.
If you are interested please let me know as soon as you can because for being in the high season is going to be pretty full, this just about the room, because for the teacher training there is place for 20 maximum.
If the answer is yes I will request from you to make a 200 usd ( the full information about the deposit will be sended to you as soon as you confirm your participation to the YTTC )
extra expenses : temazcal (10 usd) trip to the nature 3 days ( 30 usd = included transportation, food and camping accomodation )
About the money refund in this case will be just the proportional part of the days that are left, the ones that already you took classes will be no money back without exception.
This means if the total Price for 30 days is 700 usd and just you were in the course for 20 days, then you will pay 466 usd
In the case that some participant can’t follow this program or any of the few rules and regulations we have ,will be necessary to abandon the Course and the community too as soon as possible, this is mainly to keep safe the group energy, is not fair that some participants give their 100% and others not.
*In the case of sickness you can stay at the community as long as it’s needed, but to understand too that if there is not 95% participation during the course will be no certification at the end *
I beleive this is all for now, just wishing i answered some of your questions I will be happy to be in contact for further information, wishing u light and love for your path always
i will give you the time to meditate on it and that your heart takes you to the place you must be, for your benefit and from all.
