What makes this yoga teacher training different?

Kindred Spirits work in small groups of 4-12 students, for a more complete one on one and deeper training and practice time. The Yoga Teacher Training honors the original Indian heritage of yoga incorporating the important techniques of Pranayama, Meditation, Japa Mantra chanting, Mudras and how to see and influence the subtle energies that lie within you and around you, such as the Chakras and Nadis, as fellas the traditional practices of asanas and Yoga styles, of Sivannandha, Hatha, and Ashtanga, for a full mind, body and spiritual transformation.

Kindred Spirits incorporate the surrounding nature and animals as well as the horses into the classes for a more connective experience to all of life. Connecting with horses and practicing pranayama and meditation together helps to meditate and be in a state of presence and mindful awareness with more ease. The horse's energy helps to elevate vibrations into a feeling of well-being. Many studies have been done on this how the horse influences the heart, emotions and bring you into a state of oneness and happiness. Previous horse knowledge or experience is not necessary. Horses will be your guides and teachers.

Daily practices of Hatha Yoga, Sivanandha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga and experiencing the benefits of Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga for a transformational experience to connect with your True Nature and Dharma, your life’s purpose.

You will be able to teach yoga classes and deepen your own experience of yoga.

Here at Kindred Spirits, you’ll be guided through the vast science of eastern Yoga. You’ll learn the ancient and modern wisdom of this practice and how to incorporate them into your daily journey of self-realization.

Once you experience yoga’s transformative potential yourself, you’ll be ready to show others the better life that’s waiting for them as well, becoming an agent for change in your community.
