Place: Anamaya Retreat Centre
Join me for a complete and immersive 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training, July 23rd-August 20th! Training takes place at the beautiful Anamaya Resort in Montezuma Costa Rica where the lodgings are luxurious, views are spectacular and the meals are not just delicious and creative but nutritious and local!
The foundational pillars of this training include: 1. Experience - to be in integrity as a teacher it is important that you practice what you preach. Therefore, to teach, it must come from experience. Allow yourself the space to let go of the teacher role and fully immerse yourself in the practices and the healing that takes place in surrender. 2. Exploration - to be a successful and skillful teacher, one must be authentic and knowledgeable. Exploration coupled with personal feedback supports each teacher in finding clarity in their life, their offerings and their business. 3. Integration - In teacher training we are able to retreat from the ordinary and assess, reassess and/or create a plan of action. Imperative to a successful landing back in your everyday world post yoga teacher training immersion, is integration. More than just learning and experiencing the practices, together we will create a tool belt to support your integration back into your current teaching, your personal yoga practices and how to also share these tools with clients and students. 4. Clearing - all of the coaching, practices and teachings in the training are chosen and arranged in a specific order to support and launch you into the next chapter of your yoga inquiry and career. .
