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.
The course consists of five blocks with two days off in between. Class times are 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. including the four-day special module in the middle of the course. Every morning you will start the day with a guided session of chanting and meditation to explore your true self with ever-growing awareness and love.
You will have two sessions of Hatha yoga each day, one in the morning, to learn and practice new material, and one in the afternoon to develop your own teaching skills. Each day there are discourses covering the different aspects, stages, and practices of yoga and related spiritual traditions and how to teach them successfully and in an inspirational way.
In numerous additional sessions we will fill in the gaps and prepare you for all that awaits when finally being in front of your first real-world class. If you already have teaching experience this will help, but you will find an amazing wealth of new knowledge and insight by diving into the realm of traditional yoga.
