2012 Teacher Training DATES:
LEVEL 1/ 200 HOUR TT
Bali: June 1 - June 30, 2012 (registration now open!)
Our LEVEL 1: 2012 Yoga Teacher Training in Bali will include several expert teachers and facilitators in addition to Dashama.
This training is for beginners who have not been certified to teach yoga before, but who have a minimum of 1 year experience practicing yoga at least 3 times per week.
This program is vigorous, challenging and transformative, so we have a rigorous application process and can only accept people who are prepared mentally and physically to create massive shifts and transformation: to break through to the next level of their human and divine potential.
In addition to the 200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training, we also include optional modules to include more yoga classes (up to 3 per day!), to learn Healthy Raw/ Vegan and Pescatarian cooking options as well as options to become certified in rescue or deep sea diving at the end of this program, at Menjangan island, Bali. We feel all of these will enhance your experience both as a yoga teacher and as a master of life.
We will stay 2 weeks in Ubud, (June1- 15) the cultural capital of Bali, where twice a week we will go on excursions to temples, a children's orpanage and teach the kids yoga, dances, music, adventure, shopping, etc. The last 2 weeks (June 16- 30) we immerse ourselves into the nature of Mimpi, up in the North on the ocean and near hot springs, going hiking, nature trails, morning yoga at a mountain top village, snorkeling, diving (deep sea & rescue dive certification options available!), and much more.
For those who are seeking to join us, but not able to make it for the full 4 week immersion, you may join us for only 1 or 2 weeks as either a RETREAT or to accumulate hours toward your teacher training certification. Each week you can earn up to 75 hours toward the 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification requirements.
To join us click the link here and select the 1 or 2 week yoga adventure retreat option. Please specify the dates you desire in the comments when making your payment, as we will need to arrange airport transportation and reserve your rooms, etc.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to call us at 347-470-YOGA. Please read below for full details and click the links to the left to apply today.

Our Yoga Teacher Training is an in-depth study and transformational journey into the art, science, power and spirit of Yoga. Aspiring teachers and serious students will gain an understanding and experience of Yoga as a holistic practice that affects all levels of being. Participants will be taught the fundamentals of Hatha Yoga in the Vinyasa style. Beyond the comprehensive physical aspects of practice, this month long intensive is structured to be empowering and life affirming, to help participants take a quantum leap in their Yoga practice and life journey.
This 300 hour foundational yoga teacher training program is a process of total immersion and transformation, for serious students with a passion for yoga. Whether you are preparing for your teaching path or simply want to take your practice to the next level, expect to dive into the roots of yoga and open your heart to an intensely transformative and rejuvenating journey. Individuality is nurtured and encouraged, and sensitivity toward your future student's varying levels of yoga ability are cultivated. Asana and meditation are practiced to your unique proficiency. Learn to take and teach classes that combine a consistent therapeutic vision and gain a thorough understanding of the applied principals of alignment that create a safe and effective class for all ages and body types.
The extensive teacher training curriculum choices blend the best of Eastern and Western traditions, science and philosophies. The training is a fusion of the traditional Eastern teachings of Yoga with teachings from highly experienced and dynamic western Vinyasa Yoga masters, offering trainees an opportunity to impart their study practically and relevantly in a global yoga environment.
Through practicing and living Yoga, we will explore essential tools such as alignment, movement, adjustments, sequencing, meditation, yogic lifestyle and philosophy. Our training gives you the support of a like-minded group of people, dedicated to the art of practice and provides a safe and nurturing environment in which to learn and grow. The process is enhanced by the physical location and the power of nature.
Best part of all, learning is experiential.
