What you'll love about the Kula Collective 200-hour Training…

The Kula Collective 200-hour training provides a deep immersion into the practice of yoga - living, learning and embracing all aspects of a yogic lifestyle and deepening the connection to oneself and the earth through the wisdom of shamanic healing practices. These traditions, designed to grant us access to the infinite wisdom we carry within, are smoothly blended together to form a holistic offering rooted in the Indian philosophy of yoga.  

Kula Collective's 200hr YTT focuses on the expansion of our own sacred consciousness, so that we can fully embody our practice and radiate the teachings of yoga by united in mind, body and spirit. All of our programs meet Yoga Alliance standards for teaching methodology, anatomy, yogic theory and special education. This course will provide a solid foundation of yoga history, the four traditional paths, 8 limbs of ashtanga yoga, meditation and exploration of asana through our signature Kula Flow and its asana analysis.

After learning the Kula Flow we deepen our understanding of Self through study of yoga philosophy, cleansing, Bhakti Yoga and ceremony. We share creative teaching methodology for designing balanced and holistic classes, using the Kula Signature Sequences as building blocks and providing support for new teachers to creatively sequence their own classes. The course will give multiple opportunities for participants to teach and receive feedback, so that they leave with not only a fully prepared sequence, but multiple shorter sequences and a plethora of inspiration ready to create from the heart.

The Kula Collective 200-hour YTT provides you with concrete tools and clear strategies to live your life with passion and purpose. Perhaps you’re wondering if it’s really worth your time, money and effort to become Yoga Alliance certified as a 200-hour registered yoga teacher (RYT). We understand how you feel; this path is not an easy one, yet we’ve found that even those who have no plans of actually teaching Yoga have come away deeply transformed by this experience, with crystal clarity on steps they can take to manifest their dreams into reality.

Throughout our time together we engage in self-inquiry to clear space for the true teacher within to shine. By releasing the stories and holdings that no longer serve us, we create more space in our bodies and mind to see our gifts, our passions and the essence of who we are as beings on a path to holistic, connected living.

This training will provide a strong foundation in yogic practice and philosophy, and a fresh perspective on life. Its an opportunity to cultivate a practice if you do not have one and to deepen your existing practice if you do. Through the unique experience of uncovering and discovering our true nature, we empower our students to become inspired leaders in their communities and wherever they go in the world. Step away from the rush and come closer to your calling, through connecting to your heart and embracing the oneness within all.

Journey Through the Three Worlds of the Chakana...

Each of our training programs have been carefully designed to incorporate 200 intensive hours, as detailed by the Yoga Alliance, using the Kula Collective signature structure of the Chakana. The Andean Cross allows a transformative journey through the lower, middle and upper worlds of this ancient tradition, allowing us to explore the many levels of our being. 

Beginning with the Lower World, we Explore our unconscious and physical abilities and limitations, recognizing and breaking through self-created boundaries and limiting beliefs. By releasing what no longer serves us, we create more space in the body and mind through the cultivation of awareness and the understanding of the roots of yoga, anatomy, foundational practices and selfless service.  Throughout this cycle we will practice and learn in depth the poses and sequencing of our Kula Basic Flow, with daily opportunity to teach to peers and receive feedback.

In the Middle World, we Empower discovering more of who we are, through experiencing elemental awareness and self inquiry, allowing us to embody the teachings and live to our full potential. After teaching their first full yoga class, participants dive deeper into the work of Patanjali's Ashtanga (8 limbs) philosophy, applied anatomy, philosophy, pranayama, ayurveda and chakras, deepening understanding of our true nature and evoking a strong love for the self and each other.

From our work in the Lower and Middle worlds, we experience a sense of freedom in the Upper World as we Expand, shifting from gross to more subtle realms of consciousness, letting us step into our radiant power. With topics such as complementary holistic health practices, yoga sutras in depth, and the profession of yoga, we close our training with a clear personal practice and teaching plan, fueled with inspiration to grow our gifts and manifest our dreams into reality.

Conscious Exploration Through The Four Arts...

Our curriculum is split into four teaching tracks, woven through each of the three cycles.  The Four Arts recognize and develop our studies in yoga in a thoroughly holistic manner, stimulating our students to become inspired, knowledgeable and intuitive teachers, expressing and modelling all aspects of this ancient lifestyle practice.

Art of Practice: Asana, Pranayama and Meditation infused with related themes, creative sequencing and personal practice design

Art of Living: Meditation, Yoga Philosophy of sacred texts and personal exploration and transformational developmental work

Art of Teaching: Theory and Methodology, Pranayama, Adjustments, Alignment, Sequencing, Transitions, Workshopping and Asana Analysis, Anatomy and unique therapeutic focus on various areas of the body
