About This Event

Traditionally, students learned yoga from living with their guru in a gurukulam. Teachings were delivered in dialogue and further reinforced by the experiences in daily living. Pura Veda Gurukulam is modeled after this style of learning, you will understand the many facets of yoga as yoga becomes your being. This training deepens your personal practice and provides you with the tools to carry your students on their own transformative journey with yoga.

Benefit from a teacher training designed to follow the 8 steps of yoga (Ashtanga) as presented by Patanjali so you can experience:


Observe and practice the Yamas and Niyamas internally and externally to provide a strong foundation for your practice.


Release and get rid of waste in the form of blockages and stiffness as you move deeper through the asanas and as the asanas move deeper through your physical and subtle bodies.


Learn the techniques of pranayama to release and detox physical, emotional, mental trauma and blockages. Repattern mindset to let go of habits that don’t serve you in place of new intentional habits.


Experience the rewards of balancing health through yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, by following a morning routine (dinacharya) that has been designed in the daily schedule.


Understand and apply the five elements and doshic theory to create balance within yourself and within your yoga classes.


Enhance your well being by eating 3 high prana, organic, vegetarian meals created by an Ayurvedic Chef for clear digestion of thoughts.

The Aum Cabin is a hexagon shaped bungalow whose shape was chosen due to its flow of spiritual energy. This cabin has its own bathroom and indoor shower. Enjoy the outdoor patio area where you can sit, write, contemplate, or simply relax while surrounded by nature. And enjoy a private balcony set in the opposite direction, you will always have shade between the patio and balcony space. This cabin is ideal for two people and is surrounded by flowering bushes and fruit trees that are home to so many hummingbirds and birds. This is a private property and our closest neighbors are 1/4 a mile away! Perfect for a mindful experience.

The Akasha House has two hexagon bungalows with a balcony and hallway that leads to a beautiful bathroom and rain shower. The house is raised on stilts and is set close to our stream. The front balcony overlooks the jungle and offers a great view of the stars and moon on clear nights. Many times the howler monkeys pass through the trees right next to this house. This is a private property and our closest neighbors are 1/4 a mile away! Perfect for a mindful experience.
