BALI 200HR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING: AKASHA ELLIS-MAY
This May Join Akasha in Bali for our 200 hour Teacher Training Immersion
Akasha Ellis and his teacher training team are offering an opportunity of a lifetime to fully immerse in a 200 hr YTT in Bali in May 2017 at Ubud’s top retreat centre, Soulshine. This 24-day program is specifically designed to provide each student a experience that will set the foundation for becoming your own teacher and the knowledge to share and elevate others through this wisdom.
Whether you are interested in deepening your own practice or you feel the call to teach, our program is committed to your personal success.
A rich environment will be created for learning and living the eight-limb path through experiencing asana, meditation and pranayama while being supported and nurtured in the beautiful surroundings of Ubud, the spiritual heart of Bali. Our training will draw on Kundalini, Ashtanga and Somatic Yoga.
Each student will dive deep into asana and meditation and the practice of yoga in their daily life.
This is an incredible opportunity for us to truly immerse ourselves into a daily Yoga practice. To open our hearts and allow our love, courage and radiance to support and guide us.
Birmingham Yoga Teacher Training program is a Registered School with Yoga Alliance.
Goal of Training:
Learn a personal asana, pranayama and meditation practice and have the confidence to teach a beginners led yoga class Kundalini, Ashtanga and Somatics.
Our program prepares each student to instruct Beginner Level 1 and Level 2 classes.
In our training we will create a safe and sacred space to learn, grow and experience these wonderful teachings so that we may become more aware of our true potential to serve ourselves and those around us.
Our intention is to share and support one another in a daily practice and return home to our loved ones inspired, happy and radiant with the strength and projection to uplift those around us.
This training will offer you experiences that will serve you throughout your life.
As my teacher, Yogi Bhajan used to say “I am here to create teachers not accumulate students”.
He was very clear that we should practice our daily sadhana and find the divine teacher within.
Once we can trust and have the faith within we will find our inner peace and vibrate out to our surroundings bringing joy to our lives and supporting this vibration in others.
May we see, hear and feel our love in all.
It is important that you are sincere in your commitment and that you are healthy physically, mentally and emotionally.
Yoga can be practiced by all and we do not want to discourage anyone who has the right intention however the training will be challenging physically and mentally and it is important that you are able to allow these changes to unfold.
During this journey one may experience feelings of comfort, discomfort, happiness, sadness, joy and fear all of which are equally important in our growth.
We do recommend a minimum of 1 year of Yoga Practice before attending our Teacher Training Program.
