Full Circle Yoga School Hawaii Yoga Teacher Training Program

This yoga teacher training course is for anyone with three to six months minimum consistent yoga practice wanting to learn how to teach in a confident, knowledgeable, and empowered way. This training is also for those wanting to deepen their practice and learn the history, depth, and magical transformations of yoga and meditation.

You will receive hands-on training from incredibly well-trained teachers in adjustments, alignment, sequence-planning, Hatha and Vinyasa sequencing, modifications, philosophy, history, and so much more. Learn how to live fully and artfully in every moment, heal your life and others lives, let go of attachments and false beliefs, and rise up into your fullest truest self.

You will become a yoga family as together you all will heal, laugh, cry, sing, and dance. Release the unconscious limitations that you have collected and free yourself to walk a path of truly elevated consciousness through ancient teachings of yoga and meditation.

Throughout the training, which actively raises intuition and works to integrate the understanding that you have infinite potential, students often experience profound healing, release of past traumas, while learning true self love and your life’s truest purpose.

Please inform Full Circle Yoga School of your past experience with yoga, as your training will be tailored to your needs - from moderate experience to the advanced student.

This course is a training that fuses mind, body, soul.

Full Circle Wellness teaches in the traditional yogic methodology, which views yoga as a lifestyle, a science, and an art. They combine a detailed and in-depth study of modern asanas (postures) with rich and colorful history and philosophy, as well as the lifestyle of yoga that offers balance and peace for life "off the mat". Students will learn, practice, and teach a wide range of yoga postures, fully grasping sequencing in Hatha and Vinyasa flows.

There is ample opportunity to deepen your understanding of prana (life-force energy), healing, and spirituality, woven into the course with anatomy, sequence, and breath, all in a space that offers the multi-faceted teachings of yoga while honoring and respecting all religious backgrounds and beliefs.

True yoga meaning "union" teaches you to expand your consciousness and live in a higher vibrational life of beauty, presence, grace, and bliss.
