About This Event
This course will suit you if you have you been practising yoga regularly for a while and feel that you are ready to deepen your practice and to develop yourself, by delving in to the philosophy of the East and the science of the West, embracing a modern, holistic approach to yoga.
It would also be suited to you if you would like to teach what you have learnt, so that you can share the benefits of this wonderful union of body, mind and spirit with others.
This 4 week training course gives you the opportunity to study HathA, Vinyasa and Yin yoga to a level that you can then confidently teach these styles to your students.
You will learn from not only the course leader, Namit Kathoria, but also from other experienced teachers, sharing your training with a small group of like-minded people, together in a beautiful rural setting in Valencia country, Spain.
Courses are offered to a maximum of 8 students to allow us to focus our attention on you and to nurture the family and loving environment that Yoga Sutra Shala respects and enjoys.
On satisfactory completion of your course, you will be awarded a certificate to teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga.
