26 Days 200-Hour Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in Philippines

Yoga Teacher Training in Philippines

At Bodhi Yoga Center, we believe that yoga is a lifestyle and that our practice doesn’t end when we leave the mat or the studio. We practice our yogic values in the way we work and play. And we take fun very seriously. We believe that yoga is such a wonderful gift that is meant to be shared in a safe and compassionate way. More than anything, this comprehensive Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training will give you a deeper appreciation for the different facets of yoga, so you may know where to find your voice when it is your time to share this ancient wisdom to others.

Program

Spend a month-long immersion in the heart of laid-back General Santos City in Southern Philippines. Spend weekends (and maybe some weekdays) learning theory or practicing vinyasa or acro yoga by the white sand beaches of Sarangani Bay. Do water activities in your spare time such as scuba diving or snorkeling.

Sure, fun is there. But when we work, we work hard. We train from sunrise to sunset, studying a comprehensive syllabus to ensure that our trainees become compassionate and competent yoga teachers after graduation.

Whether you have the calling to teach others, or you are simply exploring your own practice, anyone can benefit from learning safe and correct methods to practice yoga postures, breathing, cleansing techniques and meditation. Appreciate from an anatomical standpoint how these practices affect our physical and mental state. Learn how to modify postures to fit any type of body, and know that Yoga is indeed for everyone. Understand the correlation between the physical practice and the underlying philosophy and truly see that yoga is all-encompassing: it is life as we know it.

As a graduate of Bodhi Yoga Center’s 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program, you may continue learning with Bodhi Yoga Center as an Intern Yoga Teacher. Intern yoga teachers will continuously be mentored by resident yoga teachers. This post-training internship is the perfect opportunity to find your voice and to experience your reality unfolding as a yoga teacher.
