Overview

YogaUnion has been delivering yoga teacher training courses (YTTC’s), based on AshtangaVinyasa Flow, an internationally accredited program with Yoga Alliance, for over a decade now.

Enchanted by their experiences in Bali and India, Ourania and Spyros, the founders of YogaUnion, decided to call Palairos their new yoga home. Bringing their experiences from their permanent home in Ubud (the cultural and yogic capital of Bali), all the way to their birthplace in Greece.

YogaUnion is currently running a 300-hour Vinyasa TTC, a unique and authentic course, open to those who want to become yoga teachers, or simply deepen their practice. YogaUnion shala is located on a cliff, surrounded by Greek olive trees and botanical herbs, overlooking the endless blue waters of the Ionian Sea - which makes this experience even more magical!

Based on thousands of hours of experience from all over the world, Ourania and Spyros carefully created and shaped the course to deliver the most educational, life-changing experience. The training is designed to challenge and develop individuals at all levels.

How the training looks like

Your days will start with pranayama, meditation, and chanting, balancing you and setting the stage for the rest of the day. You will be introduced to new, more advanced breathing techniques and practice different kinds of meditation methods and mantra chanting.

The philosophy classes will take you through the epic Baghavagitta, where you will have in-depth, open-minded, and constructive discussions in order to find yourself there and see how you can apply the traditional yogic ethics and lifestyle to modern lives.

In the afternoons, you will delve deeper into the practice of Yin, as well as be introduced to even more styles of yoga, like Tantra, restorative, pre-natal, and others, as well as having regular theme-based workshops.

This 300-hour yoga teacher training program incorporates training hours in the following educational categories and topics:

Practice techniques

The course is a five-week intensive, advanced 300hr training that will build on your pre-existing knowledge, so having already a 200hr certification will be required.

Following the 200hr course, this training will naturally be practice-focused as well. You will analyze all the poses of the Ashtanga Primary Series, as well as more and new Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga postures. You will break down, analyze, learn how to perform, adjust and teach those poses and make creative and well-structured flows with them.

The anatomy lessons will hug the asana classes, complimenting them by focusing on the understanding of movement patterns, their practical application to our practice, and how each pose affects the joints, bones, and muscles. You will take a deeper look, not only at the muscles and their fascia but also at the nervous system. You will gain more insight into how the mind is connected to our body and how you can invest in that relationship and take the reigns.

Some of the things you will do and learn / what to expect include:

  • Practice every day in the special home deep in the beautiful rural area overlooking the sea, the Yoga Shala. Accommodations in the partner guesthouses in the surrounding area, the magical neighborhood, which is surrounded by the lush, mountainous, natural setting and the local community while being only three-minutes walking distance from the center of Palairos.
  • Daily, mornings will begin with pranayama, meditation, and mantra chanting, followed by Vinyasa and Ashtanga flow classes.
  • Early afternoons will be focused on deep learning of asanas with an emphasis on alignment, adjustments, and teaching methodology. You will dive into the theoretical part, studying yoga philosophy or anatomy (alternating days).
  • The afternoon lessons will be focused on restorative styles of yoga such as Yin, Hatha, Nidra, introducing you to different styles of yoga such as Tantra and prenatal and specialized workshops.
  • Late afternoon lessons will seal the day, with practicing what we learn, working on your final lessons, and studying together as you watch the sun setting.
  • You will eat at YogaUnion partner restaurant a few minutes walking distance from the Yoga Shala, where you will enjoy healthy and nutritious recipes, all made from local and organic fruits and vegetables.
  • You will have one day off per week, usually Sundays where you get to relax or enjoy the surroundings or arrange excursions and small trips to explore Greece.
  • Above all, you will not forget to enjoy yourself and have fun in the process! The ultimate goal is self-realization and happiness and creating an experience that you will remember for the rest of your life.
