Devoted Yogi 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training
Sep 27, 2019| $3050
What we learn to teach, we integrate.
It is as simple as that. When you know you will be responsible for sharing something with another human being – you automatically take it to heart in a different way. Whether you take the training for personal development or with the intention to begin teaching yoga we encourage our trainees to begin to SEE through the eyes of a teacher. The path of Teaching is a path of integration: making something – living wisdom – which can then be shared and passed on.
Passing on the living wisdom of Yoga is the purpose of our 200 hr Devoted Yogi Teacher Training.
Giving you the Tools to teach/practice vibrantly, progressively and with confidence is our commitment to you.
We are dedicated to bringing you the finest Art, Science and Tradition Yoga has to offer. The Parampara (teacher to student unbroken lineage) is something we are deeply devoted to and take quite seriously here at our Island Yoga Shala (school).
