Program

Yoga Program

This program intends to give birth to a new breed of yoga teachers. Participants that will emerge out of this program will have experienced what yoga is really about and will have achieved a significant shift in consciousness.

The trainees will have the opportunity to receive a certification 200Hr Yoga Alliance accepted throughout the world and will be capable to lead a class of students in all the different types of asanas, pranayama, meditations, mudras, bandhas and sound healing. However, this program will also be ideal for people that do not seek to practice yoga as a profession but who would like to go deeper in their own practice and to experience a shift in consciousness that will empower them in all the different aspects of their lives.

Further to successful completion of the program and further practice, candidates will also have the possibility to receive additional certifications to enable them to take part and lead trainings of new teachers in this conscious form of yoga.

The program will last for three weeks of intense work after which their first Yoga Alliance certification could be granted. However, the attendee can continue to be supported by the instructors for an additional 6 months, practice and apply the tools received and an additional certification could be received. Over this period of 6 months, participants will be able to ask questions and will be supported with extra materials, coaching and mentoring.

The practitioner will be exposed to:

  • All 4 main types of yoga: Karma, Bhakti, Jnana, Raja
  • The 8 limbs of yoga: Yamas, Niyamas, Asanas, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi
  • Various sub-yogas: Hatha, Yin, Kirtan, Vinyasa, Restorative, Ashtanga
  • Different aspects of yoga such as: Yoga Mundras, Chanting, Bhandas, Human Anatomy, the scientific benefits of yoga

First week

The program will last for three weeks and the first week will focus on asanas. Every day of this first week, will focus on a particular type of asanas. After a break, a swim and lunch, the afternoon sessions will be about practising further and going deeper into what you learned in the morning.

Second week

The second week we will practise asanas together in the morning, and in the afternoons, we will focus on yoga philosophy, pranayama, human anatomy and different types of meditations.

Over the second week, participants will become much more capable of controlling their life energy through removing limiting beliefs and by revitalizing their different energy centers.

Attendees can expect to explore new viewpoints on different aspects of their life and as a result, experience more trust, abundance, mental, physical and sentimental balance, greater self-esteem and self-confidence, compassion, non-attachment, and to be more capable in communication at all the different levels.

Third week

The third week, you will become more comfortable with teaching as you will practice teaching on your fellow students.

Although every day and week will be different, there will also be similarities throughout the weeks. Every morning participants will meditate together with an experienced meditator, there will plenty of time for swims, breaks, hammock time and massages. There will also be excursions to beaches and places of interest on the island, dinners out and plenty of summer outdoor movie nights – perfect way to chill out after an interesting and fruitful day of training.
