Accommodation

This teacher training will take place at The Inner Peace Sanctuary in Tuscany, Italy. The sanctuary is a traditional Tuscan country residence tucked away on a hill covered in chestnut forest. It offers a feeling of truly being away from it all ,while still being able to reach civilization in a mere half hour. It's dedicated to spiritual practice, retreating into yourself and living a healthy lifestyle in a small supportive community.

During this training, you will stay either in a private or a shared accommodations. The Inner Peace Sanctuary has several twin and double rooms, a six-bed dorm, as well as large, well-appointed glamping tents in the garden, all created with comfort and traditional beauty at heart.

Program

This training is for those who would like to teach yoga from spiritual experience, going into their own depths, becoming confident, fearless, inspiring in the process. Those who feel an urgent desire to explore the truth of existence by studying and practicing a wide range of knowledge and techniques from ancient wisdom traditions passed down to us through the ages by highly evolved beings for the benefit of all.

Many other yoga teacher training courses offer quicker programs, over three or even two weeks, with less actual contact hours in the classroom, requiring students to complete many hours by themselves to reach the hours required for certification. This course exceeds 200 contact hours, ensuring that you will be adequately prepared to guide future students confidently and successfully.

Each course includes a special module on a yogic topic to go deeper into. For the July course, in 2019, we will go into four powerful days of Silent Meditation Retreat, a practice that has always counted as a key to discovering the deeper layers of ourselves and existence at large.

The September course features a 4-day Bhakti Yoga module, giving space to the Yoga of the Heart with lots of chanting, mythology, and the science of mantra.

On each weekend, we will explore a different part of the surrounding Tuscan towns, including Pisa, Lucca, and Borgo. The last weekend will include an Italian cooking class. All weekend activities are optional.
