The graduates commonly report receiving much more than a yoga certificate from the program. It is often described as a life-changing experience that provides an opportunity for individuals to know themselves and a deep and lasting way. Zen Den Yoga School offers the students the opportunity to embark on a journey that brings them to a place of deeper knowing. The yoga teacher training offers much more than the physical aspect of yoga, it guides you along a yogic and shamanic journey of transformation mind, body and spirit.
The schedule includes multiple yoga classes, group discussions, as well as other training and bonding events. Prior to arrival you will be required to begin your yoga anatomy online course. Upon arrival, you will receive the 300-hours yoga teacher training manual, The Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras. The students get the opportunity to practice asanas and the respective alignments; explore the meaning of the yoga sutras and Bhagavad Gita; experience and learn several meditation techniques; perform regular peer-teaching; learn business and marketing of being a yoga teacher, including a thorough understanding of how to be advantageous in saturated markets. Training is intensive physically as well, students do a 90 minutes asana practice in the morning and in the afternoon, in addition to 2 to 4 hours of further studies during the day. Then there is the asana and other practice for your homework daily. Be prepared for the challenges of this intensive on all levels – physically, mentally, and emotionally.
We will do our best to match you with a roommate if you would like to share a twin-bedded room with another student of the same gender. Otherwise, a single supplemental fee may apply for a private room, or students are placed in double rooms and triple rooms based on gender and order of enrollment.
