Kula Kamala Foundation provides affordable, high-quality training in the teaching and practice of yoga, a complement of holistic therapies and lifestyle. Yoga has been scientifically proven to have several benefits including stress reduction, greater focus and clarity, and overall improved health and happiness. Start or continue your yoga journey with seasoned teachers who are highly educated and continuously dedicated to serving and working in the area of yoga, yoga therapy, and spirituality.
All accommodations for this yoga teacher training are in dormitory style. Students are housed in dormitory style housing with six to eight beds per 600 square feet room. Dormitories offer both twin and full size beds. There are a limited number of semi private accommodations at an extra charge.
During this training, students will study yoga ethics, asana, meditation, pranayama (breath work), history and philosophy, the use of sound (chanting) and visualization in healing and holistic therapy, anatomy, pathology, the importance of alignment, yoga psychology, energy, and basic Sanskrit (the language of yoga).
Participants will learn basic principles for effective teaching and how to work effectively with beginner and intermediate practitioners as well as individuals with common health concerns. Effective adjustments, how and when to use props, how to create a safe environment for your students and for yourself, sequencing of classes, the importance of your personal practice, and how to manifest your inner teacher are also topics of study.
If you seek to move beyond the idea of yoga as a mere physical practice, if you are inspired by the healing potential of love, compassion, and community, if you realize that there is more to yoga than meets the eye, if you see the need for 99% of people to slow down and become more mindful, rather than speed up their already stressed out nervous systems then this is a training you should consider.
If you are interested to know where and how yoga originated, how to incorporate the study of the yoga scriptures so they have potent meaning in your modern life, if you wish to begin or continue a fuller investigation then this is a training that you should be seriously considering. A complete syllabus and yoga teacher training manual authored by Sudha will be provided on the first day of class. Additional books are required and the list is available by contacting Kula Kamala Foundation.
The daily schedule is organized so that the students receive the upmost quality teachings, while still having a reasonable amount of personal study time. Typically, the day will run 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Please note there are hourly breaks during the longer sessions.
There are some days where the schedule shifts and changes a bit but this is the general structure.
Students have 2 & ½ free days during the program. We also plan at least one field trip.
The retreat will be held at the Kula Kamala Ashram in Reading, Pennsylvania, USA.
The ashram is dedicated to ahimsa which means non-harming. As such, the menu is largely vegan with some vegetarian options. The facility serves only gluten free, organic, and seasonal food when possible. There is plenty to eat. You will be served three meals a day plus snacks.
Meals are served buffet style for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon snack. Meals are high quality, healthy, all natural, and freshly prepared vegetarian sattvic food. Meals are all natural, organic when possible, 95% of the ingredients come from certified organic sources, gluten-free, gmo-free, preservative-free, chemical-free, and dye and additive-free. Kula Kamala Foundation does not serve meat, fish, or chicken, but milk, yogurt, and ghee are available.
Kula Kamala Foundation asks students to help them maintain a food rich environment and to please refrain from bringing outside food to the ashram, especially meat, gluten, eggs, and anything with chemicals, additives, preservatives, and artificial anything.
There are select limited spa services. Please send an inquiry to Kula Kamala Foundation for more information.
