RYT-200 Yoga Teacher Training
During the training we wake up while the sun rises and experience the beauty and serenity in the midst of a the tropical setting. We end with meditation or Satsang (wise gathering) to contemplate and reflect on our sadhana (spiritual practice) of the day. Living with the rhythms of the earth and embracing the fullness of our practice, we grow into ourselves and into life.
Flow of the Course
Our programs are 25 day courses, using the Chakana as our foundational structure. This means the course is separated into Lower, Middle, and Upper Worlds. The lower world represents the physical, the middle world reflects the mental and emotional, and the upper world involves the energetic or spiritual realm, leading us on a true journey from the head to the heart. Uncover and let go of the layers and step into a more awakened state of being to sit in the seat of your soul.
We will spend 8 days in each world, broken down into two half-cycles of 3 days, with a half-day on Day 4 to apply these practices to modern day living, and a full day off on Day 8 to live our sadhana (spiritual practice).
For full school days we will follow the schedule as detailed on the right. On half days (4th day of each cycle), we will open with a morning's rest, restorative/yin class and a workshop to deepen our understanding of the Chakras associated with the 'world' we are working in, with the rest of this day free.
We will meet for evening gathering every other day.
The training will consist of 25 days - 18 full training days, three half days (3 worlds), and 2 full days off, plus opening and closing on the first and last days.
