About This Event

In the foothills of the oldest mountains in the world lies time and space for connection. Our module-based 300hr yoga teacher training program allows you to advance your teachings when it suits you, and explore all that yoga means to you.

This springtime intensive is designed to give you a wide range of tangible tools that can be incorporated into your teaching right away. Alongside advanced yogic wisdom, you will receive the opportunity to dive deep into your personal practice of meditation, pranayama and bhakti as well as creative, holistic asana. As summer begins to blossom in the mountains, rivers, and forests, it is a perfect time to deepen your knowledge and reveal the wisdom to follow your passion and your purpose.

In addition to the core curriculum of yoga philosophy, energetic principles, and yoga asana (alignment, anatomy, and teaching), we will explore spiritual traditions from the South American Andean Quechua, Central American Mayan, and North American Cherokee and Lakota traditions. To connect with the land surrounding Seven Springs, we will collaborate with local healers from the Cherokee nation and traditional Appalachian naturopathy for offerings that include a traditional sweat lodge ceremony. The sacred stillness of this ancient mountain range is a deeply nurturing place to become aware of the divine reflection within yourself.

In the process of co-creating and expertly facilitating the group space, we support open sharing of passions and tools and encourage participants to grow into their role as facilitators and space holders. Drawing on the natural serenity of this idyllic valley, cleansed by the seven sacred springs of the property, and nourished by the abundance that surrounds, this training offers a space for deep and purposeful growth. With such creative freedom, our 300hr graduates leave with a strong momentum to incorporate advanced yogic principles in all aspects of daily life, feeling deeply inspired and clear in how to share their essence and live their dharma.

About the Kula's Modular program...

The Kula Collective 300-hour Module-Based YTT (yoga teacher training) program is a fusion of the ancient and mystical traditions of Yoga, Shamanism and the healing arts, offered in shorter, retreat-style intensive courses that you are free to style in your own way.

These practices, designed to grant us access to the infinite wisdom we carry within ourselves, are smoothly blended together to form an offering rooted in the principal of yoga as union, a channel for connection to the divine.

This training is designed to advance the teaching and personal practice of 200hr graduates, although some elective modules may also be available for those who wish to deepen their study without the foundational course in teaching. All of our 300hr programs offer a deeper exploration of yoga as a therapeutic healing practice. Our modules are grounded into the very foundation of yoga: the exploration of personal practice, yogic philosophy and meditation practices. These are complemented with a focus on holistic health, through shamanic healing, ayurveda and self-inquiry.

In addition to meeting the Yoga Alliance standards for teaching methodology, anatomy, yogic theory and special education, all of Kula Collective's 300hr programs focus on the expansion of our own sacred consciousness, so that we can fully embody our practice and radiate the teachings in our own presence.

Throughout the modules we engage in self-inquiry to clear space for the true teacher within to shine, sharing prayer, ceremony and Bhakti Yoga, as well as Karma Yoga - selfless service to gracefully and mindfully help the whole. By releasing the stories and holdings that no longer serve us, we create more space to see our gifts, our passions and the essence of who we are as teachers and beings on this path.

Venue Highlights

What you’ll love about Seven Springs...
Seven Springs is a holistic retreat center, nestled in the bio-diverse foothills of the smoky mountains of Tennessee on 126 acres of mostly forested hills. With seven natural springs and an abundance of native species, the natural vibrancy of this land is complemented by the integration of offerings with wisdom and teachers from the local Cherokee traditions.

Seven Springs is named after the abundance of fresh water on this land, with a spring dedicated to each chakra, giving potency to the fresh water that flows from within the earth. Cleansing in this water is a powerful experience that reaches far beyond just the physical body.

Standing 16 feet tall and 28 foot diameter, the Seven Springs yoga shala is open to the fresh mountain air, supported by mighty cedars, sustainably felled in the surrounding forest. On a hill near to the shala sits the open-air massage pavilion. Ceremony is held under the stars around our special fire circle.

Seven Springs has five residential yurts on site, each fully furnished with beds, tables, electrical outlets and dressers. If you've never slept in round walls this is a must-try! There are also several ideal camping spots along the creek, near to the luxurious community kitchen and bathrooms with flush toilets and hot showers. Food is prepared and eaten without walls. The classroom space is in a 24ft octagonal retrofitted & recycled yurt -- the perfect place to practice and learn. A labyrinth lotus lovingly painted on the floor invites walking meditation and a well-stocked library invites cozy study. When nature calls wander down the hollow where you’ll find our 35ft traditional 7 course labyrinth nestled under an ancient elm within a natural bowl - a perfect place for contemplation and visioning.
