200-Hour 5 Elements Vinyasa + Aerial Yoga Teacher Training Sri Lanka w/ Lindsay Nova
About This Event
About our Teacher Training Program
This course combines the ancient wisdom of yoga with the modern science of today through vinyasa and aerial yoga. Learn to fly and teach vinyasa and aerial yoga on the paradise island of Sri Lanka! Known as the teardrop of India, this part of the world is tucked away into a vibrant and bustling South Asian culture, the perfect backdrop for learning yoga.
Lindsay Nova, the director of this program Samanova Yoga, will be joined by international staff to make this course a well-rounded and thorough study of yoga from a variety of perspectives. Combined, the teachers have over 20 years of experience and emphasize that the practice of yoga is more than just exercise, it is a lifestyle. This is a great place to deepen your understanding of yoga, develop your own personal practice, and of course, how to teach it to others.
Spaces are limited to just 12 students to ensure quality instruction and ample time for questions and individual feedback. Join us at the peaceful Talalla Retreat center, just steps away from the ocean.
You will learn how to sequence a yoga class as well as study in yoga history and philosophy. You will also learn basic inversions in aerial yoga and how to spot them in classes. Our training also has a focus on safety and proper rigging, which is essential when teaching aerial yoga!
You will walk away from this training with not only all the skills necessary to ensure you are ready to teach yoga on a professional level, but also with a transformed body and mind to stay motivated in following your soul purpose.
All levels are welcome on this course, even if you do not plan to teach right away, because we believe yoga is for everyone. Are you ready to follow your heart? Join us today in paradise for this special yoga training that will change your life for the better.
“I completed my aerial teacher training with Lindsay in Sri Lanka in May and the overall experience was incredible. From the very beginning stages of planning the trip all the way through the end of the training program, she was there to help answer questions, give advice/ suggestions and share her knowledge and bright personality with us all. I would recommend working with her to anyone interested in aerial yoga. She creates a very safe, supportive and fun learning environment for her students!” Meghan Dwyer
