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.
