300 Hour Subtle Body Yoga Teacher Training

March 4-April 04, 2018, Goa, India

This intensive training is an inward journey into the psychology of the chakra system through theory, self-study and practical application.

This 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training takes you on a personal journey through the unseen chakra system to transform and deepen your knowledge of the philosophical world of yoga. This course emphasizes more on the subtle bodies than the advancing of asana poses, because truth be told, anyone can learn to perform asana poses through flexibility and strength training. The spiritual, physical and theory behind yoga take a lifetime to master.

The teachings are a combination of theory and practical exercises, which are designed to assist your understanding with the physiological and psychological connection of the mind, body, and spirit connection. These personal tools can help build a healthy, respectful, and loving relationship with yourself and the world as well as serve as a teacher who inspires your students.

Your beliefs, conditioning and programming are like the hard wiring of a computer. Within each of us, we have our own personal software. In each of the chakra centers is where our program is written. For most people, there is little to no awareness of these limited programs, unless they take time out of society and invest into self-reflection into the subconscious of these beliefs and programs. Your personal program is formed in your upbringing, culture, and experiences. Some aspects of your programs held within you might like and other aspects you may desire to alter.

At our 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training, you will learn to explore the depths of these programs. We are not here to provide you with the answers to what is “right” or “wrong”, but only to help give you the tools needed to go on an effective journey of self-discovery. Once you learn to serve yourself then you can truly begin to mentor others on their journey of growth through the practice of yoga.

Course Overview

 In a combination of theory and practical application, we study one major chakra every three days, reflected to each specific element, asana, pranayama, kriyas, mudras, sound, mantras and meditation that influences the conscious awareness associated with each specific chakra.

In this subtle realm of existence, there is a lot of unexplored territory for even the most experienced yogic scholar. When we delve into these topics we discover which chakras contain blocked energy and suppressed emotions along with learning techniques to find balance and peace. We invite our shadow side to be revealed, healed and transformed. It is in the deeper programming of our subconscious of the inner psychological mind.

The content and depth of this training requires a sense of personal responsibility and a willingness to be vulnerable and open for change.

When we are ready and give ourselves permission to become vulnerable and look at the freedom of self-transformation, limited programs and release stuck emotions, it is in the depth of this space where transformation happens and consciousness awakens. The process of transformation is not always comfortable, yet we provide a sacred and supportive space for transformation to occur. If you are ready to make a change and learn tools for self-transformation, healing, empowerment and want to understand the subtle bodies then this training is for you.
