Prerequisites

This course is designed for anyone interested in deepening their yogic practice and those who are also interested in taking the first step to becoming a certified yoga instructor. There are no physical or educational prerequisites to register for a 200-hour yoga teacher training. Kula Collective does recommend that students have regular practice prior to attending the course.

Not interested in becoming a yoga teacher? This course is still an incredible way to deepen your knowledge and take some time away from your day-to-day distractions by diving into an immersive yoga experience.

Kula Collective's 16-day Fusion & Integrative Framework

Kula’s 16-day Fusion & Integrative Framework is our newest model that has been created out of our students’ needs for accessibility, engagement, and integration. They envision their 200-hour yoga teacher training to not only be a transformational immersive experience for you but to be a catalyst that bridges the gap between your spiritual and daily life. They want to support and empower you on this inward holistic yoga journey from Guatemala to your home life through online pre and post-training two-hour live calls with your facilitators and fellow yoga students.

How the training works

Required online tools: You need a reliable internet connection to participate in the online portion of the training.

LIVE CALLS: Online pre-course and post-course LIVE 2-hour calls two weeks before/after the training.

PRE-COURSE MATERIAL: 40 hours of self-paced recorded online that will need to be completed prior to your in-person training dates.

You will have forever access to this material to refer to after the training when you go into the world and teach! (Extend this to 200 hours of content with Kula Collective's digital library for 200 USD more!)

The online portion of the training should be completed before you join the in-person training in Guatemala. The materials can be covered in a minimum of 5 days.

Online content includes

  • Kula Basic Flow recordings w/ asana analysis and sequencing
  • Holistic Yoga and 7 Moving Principles
  • Yoga History & The Four Paths
  • Intro to Shamanism

Requirement: Students learn the Kula Basic Flow online prior to the first peer teaching that is near the beginning of the in-person portion so they are ready to teach!

In-person portion

The in-person 16-day training is designed to bring the teachings alive through learning in a dynamic and interactive community at the sacred location of Guatemala! This is the time to embody the yoga teacher in you through peer teaching and hands-on assists.

You will have an optional Kula Karma day following the training that you will have the opportunity to participate in OR a Karma project after the training to shine your light in your hometown!
