Yoga Teacher Training
“First you learn yoga, then you teach yoga, finally you live yoga”
The goal of this yoga teacher training is a personal development through an in-depth and comprehensive guide to yoga and meditation. You will develop a clear mind, a robust personality and a solidly trained knowledge which will be a secure foundation for teaching yoga and meditation.
A functioning body that you like to be in is one of the first effects of yoga and meditation. You’ll also get to know all the different sides of yourself and you shall accept yourself more and more exactly as you are. It makes you both comfortable and unafraid, you recognize your own abilities and allow them to develop. You discover that you can set your goals high and live in accordance with them. Attentive and affectionate, you can experience life, resting in yourself.
The long duration of the training ensures that yoga melts into your everyday life. The daily practice gives a focus for living life with clarity and energy, and the time spent in a yoga teacher group provides additional motivation. It is necessary for you as a yoga and meditation teacher to inspire other people in the long term. Already after one year into the training course you shall begin to teach.
