This yoga teacher training is a holistic program based on the understanding that to understand yoga you must first understand self: body, mind, and spirit.
Kula Collective brings to life the ancient teachings of yoga through accessible spiritual lessons, a solid foundation in yogic philosophy, and a daily yoga practice, called The Kula Flow (a slow Vinyasa based sequence with an emphasis on mindfulness, breath, meditation, and alignment).
During the training you wake up while the sun rises and experience the beauty and serenity in the midst of a tropical setting. You will end your day with meditation or Satsang (wise gathering) to contemplate and reflect on your sadhana (spiritual practice) of the day. Living with the rhythms of the earth and embracing the fullness of your practice, you grow into yourselves and into life.
This is a 25-day course, using the Chakana as the foundational structure. This means the course is separated into lower, middle, and upper worlds. The lower world represents the physical, the middle world reflects the mental and emotional, and the upper world involves the energetic or spiritual realm, leading you on a true journey from the head to the heart. Uncover and let go of the layers and step into a more awakened state of being to sit in the seat of your soul.
You will spend eight days in each world, broken down into two half-cycles of three days, with a half-day on day four to apply these practices to modern day living, and a full day off on day eight to live your sadhana (spiritual practice).
For full school days you will follow the schedule as detailed below. On half days (fourth day of each cycle), you will open with a morning's rest, Restorative and Yin class, and a workshop to deepen your understanding of the chakras associated with the 'world' you are working in, with the rest of this day free. You will meet for evening gathering every other day. The training will consist of 25 days: 18 full training days, three half days (three worlds), and two full days off, plus opening and closing on the first and last days.
Sharing yoga is a process of intimacy, one that asks for deep movement within both giver and receiver through love, authenticity, attention, and connection. There are many ways in which yoga can be shared. Kula Collective believes that the fundamental principle that links all of their yoga teaching is connection; the concept that in order to truly help another being to find oneness, they must their selves be a channel to that oneness for their students.
How can you live better, slower, with more authenticity? Why do you do what you do? What are the thoughts that you think? How much more deeply can you inhabit your experience? And, underneath all of the thoughts and questions and memories, who are you? There is an art to living well, to living fully, as fully as you can. Philosophers through the ages have speculated on the big questions and yoga is just one of infinite pathways to the truth. If you have come to yoga, chances are you will have asked yourself these questions. As you come together in a group training, you explore these and many more, through examining both your own understanding of the art of living and that of the ancient sages.
It is through the experience of yoga that you understand the infinite nature of your being, where you reach beyond the boundaries of your individual lives and individual experience and touch the unity that is yoga. This yoga teacher training places emphasis on the experiential face of yoga by living your practice as a group, beginning and ending each day with a form of meditation and daily connection to your asana and pranayama. Each morning you will wake in silence to meditate as the sun rises, flowing into your internal experience of meditation. As you continue to expand through teaching, you will creatively work with the internal experience and feel what it is to open up your boundaries, as you are guided into deepening your personal practice through meditation, pranayama, and asana.
When you step into the role of yoga teacher, you are not simply sharing a physical practice to keep people fit, you are sharing a holistic practice that helps people to heal physically, mentally, emotionally, and energetically. And through sharing yoga as a holistic practice of living, you are allowing yourselves as a whole to connect to your true nature, as spiritual beings. This 200-hour yoga teacher training gives the opportunity for deep self-healing through personal discovery practices, group exercises, intentional discussion, and sacred ceremony. This training also offers a wide selection of teachings on complementary health practices, including but not limited to Ayurveda, nutrition, massage, energetic healing, Tai Chi, chakra cleansing, herbal healing, and the yogic diet.
Bali is filled with incredible nature, art, beauty, and spirituality is inherently infused into the unique culture. The Balinese have a strong community spirit and most families live in a community setting known. Every aspect of their lives involves some sort of prayer, worship or offering to the gods, as an expression of the heart.
