Yoga Energetics - Foundation Yoga Teacher Training

About us

Experiential Embodiment. This is not your run-of-the-mill teacher training. This experience will change your life –and this is not a tagline.

Bali: one of the most magical islands on this planet, where daily ceremony is still part of cultural ritual and, as a result, the spirits of this land are still alive and “speaking.” There’s no denying that there’s a different matrix or dimension here. Those of you who have been here already know it – and if you haven’t been here yet – it’s time for you to come and find out.

Ubud itself has its own sacred potency. The name itself, “Ubud” – taken from “Ubad” – means “Medicine” in Balinese.

This Level One Yoga Teacher Training is already powerful within itself simply with the commitment you make to YOU and your yoga practice. Combine that with the potency of working in subtler energetic realms with the healing magic of Bali – this is the perfect recipe for a transformational journey.

What makes the yoga portion of the training so potent is the energetic field that is held within the training – especially by Cat Kabira. Cat works in a subtler shamanic way – meaning that she has the gift of seeing deep blockages within the body whether it’s emotional, physical, mental, karmic, or on another energetic level – and can safely and fully hold space for you while you observe and watch it clear and transform. This is your opportunity to meet yourself – on every level – so that any old blockage, on any level and in any dimension – can be felt, met, and transformed.

This practice requires courage – taken from the French “Coeur” – asking you to come fully with, into and through your heart. This can be an intense process – this dance with yourself – so do know that your commitment to this program is truly a deeper commitment to levels of yourself you may not have even met yet.

Come ready to work, to practice, to look at yourself, to be surprised. This program is unlike any other. Drop your expectations but DO come with your personal intentions. Why are you here? We are not here to tell you the answers – we are here to ask you the questions and fully support you along your way.

Who is this program for?

This program is for anyone who wants to take her/ his practice deeper, and/or who’s ready to commit to becoming a teacher. This program is for you if you’re ready to change. This is a Level One Teacher Training Course so we will be covering all of the basics and fundamentals as required by Yoga Alliance. This course is different from other 200-Hour Training Courses as there’s an energetic and shamanic influence held by Cat Kabira. Be willing to meet yourself in a whole new way.

Some students do take this course even if they have already taken a level one training. We also offer advanced training modules if you have already completed a 200-Hour Yoga-Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training.

Not wanting to teach but wanting an immersion in your practice? Some students show up for that. This is a wonderful opportunity to go inside with some more intensive inner-work. You will still be required to show up for all of the training– including the teaching practices. You may end up surprised. Many who show up for the course not intending to teach are now great teachers.

We do require at least a one-year practice by the beginning of the teacher training date.

Ready to commit? Contact for an application and more information.  Once reviewed, Cat Kabira will personally contact you.
