Hatha is the mother of all asana practices and with that the most important and fundamental philosophy. Hatha is a general category that may include most yoga styles known in the West. It is an ancient system that includes the practice of asanas (yoga postures) and pranayama (yoga breathing exercises) which help to bring peace to mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation and Vinyasa means movement with breath.

Its more in motion dynamically with incorporating basic vinyasa principals. Being a qualified Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher means you have a very broad skill set that allows you to teach many different Vinyasa, Hatha, and Restorative yoga classes. Your classes will be creative and varied, always aiming to bring peace of mind to your students.

This teacher training is a unique, profoundly transforming, and personal experience that is based on the ancient Gurukula Teaching System which integrates the student's daily life into yoga training. For twenty-six intense days of community living, students strengthen their own yoga practice through self-discipline and awareness of the nature of mind, body, and spirit.

They also build a firm foundation from which they are able to teach others confidently. This teacher training provides a fantastic opportunity to awaken or deepen your yoga practice, meet old and new friends, and be a part of the global yoga community, which is growing each day. The best part of all is learning that everything we need is already within you and how the practice can lead you into accessing your gifts and beauty from the inside out.

The experience provides a great way to find happiness, peace, and the ability to share the yogic philosophies with others. The goal of this training program is to produce qualified and inspiring yoga teachers who are able to draw on their own practice and personal discipline in imparting the yoga experience to others.
