Yoga Teacher Training

About This Event

A transformative journey immersed in nature, expert yoga instruction and self care supported by healers, teachers and friends. Each of our teachers has 15 – 25 years of experience. We keep our groups small – no more than 6 students per teacher so you get maximum attention. You will meet requirements for the Yoga Alliance 200 hour RYT.

What We Will Cover

Techniques, Training and Practice Learn how to practice each pose and safely teach students of varying abilities. We will explore various traditions of yoga, refine our personal practice and delve into the understanding the self. Music and literature will enhance our classes and give intention to our teaching.

Teaching Methodology Master the art and science of teaching. Find your perspective by refining methods of communication, demonstration, assisting and supporting students in their development.

Anatomy and Physiology Understand the human body using both western and eastern anatomy. We will explore the body’s systems and organs as well as chakras, nadis, koshas and vayus. Understanding the body from the inside out gives us an intimate view of our students and their struggles. 

Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics Immerse yourself in yogic living the moment you start this journey. We will discuss philosophy and ethics from the yoga teacher’s perspective focusing on Pantanjali’s Eight Limb Path of Yoga.

Practicum The best way to become an excellent teacher is to practice how to teach. With support and love, each of us will teach and receive feedback from our peers who are on the same journey.  We will end with a discussion on the business aspect of yoga.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is a desire to gain a deeper connection to and understanding of myself, something that I've been working hard on for so long and will continue to do in the future. I view a retreat as a wonderful way to focus entirely on this without the distractions of every day life! Nicola

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
