Armed with this knowledge, you will have the ability to create both gentle and more challenging vinyasa flows. With this solid foundation, you will teach with greater confidence and have the freedom to develop your own unique teaching style.
Embark on a captivating exploration of yoga philosophies and lineages, delving into their historical context and the influences of different cultures on their organic evolution. We will navigate through the core concepts of yoga, while also introducing teachings that offer valuable insights into addressing contemporary challenges. Our intention is not to prescribe a specific lifestyle or discipline, but rather to broaden your horizons and inspire you with the diverse and profound wisdom present in the philosophical history of yoga.
During the training, you will experience personal growth as a yogi and establish a solid foundation for your journey as a yoga teacher. We will delve into important questions that will shape your teaching path: Who do you aspire to be as a teacher? What values and principles are significant to you?
