Namaha Yoga School is pleased to be offering a 200-hour yoga teacher training in Kineta, Attiki, Greece in the summer of 2018. This Vinyasa and Hatha yoga teacher training will guide you through a transformational experience of both body and spirit. The style of Vinyasa taught is joyful, challenging and uses the precision of alignment, while allowing you to flow through the Vinyasa tradition.
Villa Arian practically consists of two villas and is an ideal place for rest and tranquility. The villas are situated directly on the beach, surrounded by a large garden with trees and lawn, and offer a private pool, a fully equipped gym, a tennis court and rooms with en-suite bathrooms.
The style of Vinyasa taught is joyful, challenging, and uses the precision of alignment, while allowing you to flow through the Vinyasa tradition. Hatha is a broad term used to describe all styles of yoga that use physical movement. In this training, you will be taught Hatha through sequencing to be a more static style of yoga and accessible to a wide range of people.
Through this particular approach of teaching yoga, you learn how to connect seemingly different asanas together with integrity and alignment; how to link in an intelligent way, things that may seem independent of each other into a dynamic, exciting flow; how to create and leave space between the movements and mindful transitions. This is where the creativity and joy come into teaching! This will also help you as a teacher to easily adapt to different levels of students and class planning in a safe and skillful way.
As a yoga teacher, you will leave feeling confident in creating different levels of Vinyasa classes as well as more traditional Hatha Yoga classes, teaching meditation and pranayama, as well as Dharma talks.

Yoga practice is an evolutionary experience. Whether one can chart its history clearly and how far back will it remain relevant are the very questions the studies will explore. So many traditions with so many more claims!
A daily meditation practice is deeply important and equal to all aspects of your yoga practice. During this training, the meditation practices will include active, breath, silent, mantra, and visual. You will explore the varieties every day. The trainee will be supported to discover the form that is most meaningful to their practice.
The very heart of this intelligent Vinyasa training, asana, will be thoroughly practiced, examined and explored. How many poses are there? Countless! How much will be performed? All of them!
To hold the practice is to understand its language. To speak clearly from a basic knowledge will draw your voice and presence more skillfully into the room. Ground your education in the art of Sanskrit and enjoy the potency of yoga both physically as well as vibrationally.
Over the course of one’s yoga life, alignment and the power to modify will make a radical difference to the depth of practice and to the subtleties of personal awareness and insight. Two questions at its root: What difference does a difference make? Now, what are you prepared to do? Be self assured in answering them.
Being in a yoga Ainyasa training, you will no doubt examine anatomy from head to toe. That being said, you will also explore the anatomy of your breath as well as the anatomy of your prana. Throughout a Vinyasa experience, these three anatomies triangulate naturally. To understand how to develop your awareness of them and how to co-participate in them is at the very heart of this yoga Vinyasa training.
Literally means to extend the prana. To explore its intimate passage of breath to your body, and through both, to yourself. Prana translates as “life-force” and working skillfully with pranayama means to expand our life’s vital energy. You will hold a daily practice of varied pranayama.
The very tools to create the body of a shared yoga experience. To open the space, to understand how to open the body, to work in the postures in order to arrive at the summit of the sequence, to safely and successfully come down from said summit, to close the body and why. To offer a theme in practice. To deepen the intimacies of yoga.
A powerful tool for the teacher. To support and administer the right touch for the maximum potential shift. That of the very greatest outcome of transformation, to the basic understanding to hold space to perhaps the endless possibilities of subtle difference. How to assist without getting in the way of the student’s experience or making it about yourself.
Please note that the schedule may change according to need.
