A Training of the Times
300hr ADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
A Journey of Return
Our Earth Mother is speaking to us through our hearts. She is sending out a call for humans to wake up and take definitive action to usher in a new paradigm, a new way of living. She is asking us to create a life of reciprocity, respect, love, and healing. Millions of us around the world are hearing and answering, this call. If you have landed here, you must have heard it too.
Our 300hr Advanced Yoga Teacher Training course is an invitation to experience and learn, a step-by-step process on how to be an agent of positive change.
Yoga Chikitsa (Yoga as Therapy) is nearly as old as Yoga itself. It is the oldest holistic concept and therapy of the world. This is the foundation of our course curriculum.
Yoga Chikitsa is:
- a return of the mind that feels separate from the Whole,
- a return to a conscious, loving relationship with your Earth Mother,
- a return from individuality to community,
- a return from empty ethics to spiritual values,
- a return from disease to a vibrant life.
For thousands of years, Yoga has been reverently handed down as a therapeutic medicine for human and planetary suffering. As yoga teachers + studio owners, we act as ambassadors for this transformational energy. In fact, yoga is a powerful medicine in addressing the many crisis we are facing today.
By saying "YES" to this inner call, you act as a healing immune cell in the body of Life.
Join us for this intentional five month immersion and uncover your own unique role in ushering in a new way to live in harmony with Mother Earth. This Journey of Return is your birth right and a journey that celebrates the intersection of yoga, nature, community, and healing.
HOW THE COURSE WORKS
As a circle of 10 participants, we launch with an 8-day retreat immersion and it lays the foundation for the rest of your five-month journey. After our initial retreat, we will meet virtually three times a month on Wednesdays, for 2hrs each session, April - July. The 4th Wednesday of the month acts as our 'winter' giving you time to retreat within and process.
By having consistent weekly sessions, you are able to uncover the depth of yogic wisdoms and integrate them immediately into your classes and offerings.
On Friday May 13th, you'll participate in our special "Medicine Women Symposium." This session is open to the public and hosts a panel of healers who will share wisdoms and practices they have gained through various fields of medicine. There is one online weekend immersion in June that is 3hr a day.
We close this concise journey with another 8-day retreat that solidifies your clear action plan to integrate the teachings into your career path and local community.
We invite you to join us on this Journey of Return.
