For anyone that feels a strong pull towards sharing yoga and meditation, our Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training is the perfect stepping stone to becoming a certified yoga and meditation teacher. The training will help you strengthen your own self practice and will give you a strong foundation for deeply understanding yogic practices and yoga philosophy.
During this training, you will stay either in a private or shared luxurious room, at the Parimukti Yoga & Meditation Center, in Arambol. The school is located at Kanira Homes, in a quiet area, just a few minutes from the beach.
All rooms have a private attached bathroom with a western style toilet and hot running water shower. Each room has a ceiling fan generating a gentle breeze. There is a shared fridge for students at a hall, which means that you can buy your own little snacks for the breaks and evenings.
The program starts off with a strong focus on your own practice of pranayama, meditation, asana and chanting. The physical classes are alternated with philosophical approaches that will open our understanding of the nature of our minds, and how we can make our lives more purposeful. In order to better understand the profound meaning of these practices, we will also learn about the effects of silence immersion throughout the day. Only in silence can we go deep within and start to listen, and observe, our body, mind, and actions. This period is devoted to purifying our physical and mental bodies.
The focus of the second half of the training consists in a deep studying and understanding of the Yoga practice which we ultimately want to share. Deep understanding and awareness both enriches your own daily practice and will create a fertile soil for your own unique teaching foundations and ensure a successful and enriching process.
Every morning will be dedicated to meditation, pranayama, and asana. The rest of the day we will study the asanas, pranayama, meditation, and chanting. We will also learn mantras from the Vedas, with a focus on their meaning, application, and proper pronunciation. During this training, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali will also be introduced as one of the pillars of Hatha yoga, and we will introduce the science of Ayurveda to understand more deeply how to lead a healthy life according to one's dosha (bodily constitution)
