Program

Overview

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 the mind and body, preparing the body for deeper spiritual practices such as meditation.

Being a qualified Hatha yoga teacher means you have a very broad skill set that allows you to teach many different Vinyasa, Hatha, and Yin based classes. Your classes will be creative and varied, always aiming to bring peace of mind to your students.

Earth Yoga Village 300-hour teacher training is a unique, profoundly transforming and personal experience holistically 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 develop further on a foundation from which they are able to teach others confidently and deeply.

Earth Yoga Village teacher training provides a fantastic opportunity to awaken or deepen your yoga and spiritual knowledge, 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 you 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.

Objectives

To provide a solid foundation for an individual to grow deeper from current level of teaching.

Requirements

Retreat location

This course will take place in Goa, India. Set among lush green jungle within a 30 meters walk to a paradise beach, you will find the village to be extremely peaceful and an ideal place to relax. It is your refuge from a busy life and is conveniently located in South Goa on the beautiful beach of Palolem which is known for its blissful vibes, laid back people, and stunning nature.

Palolem beach is largely unspoiled and is inhabited by both local fishermen and by foreign tourists who live in shacks along the shore or in the main village. The location offers an ideal place to explore the stunning beaches, beautiful local villages, and surrounding nature outside of your retreat schedule.
