Program

Our curriculum and philosophy are focused on traditional Hatha yoga. As you will learn during the course, Hatha yoga is a way of approaching life, and the asana practice is only one of the eight limbs of the Hatha philosophy. You will learn how to integrate the empathetic and spiritual practice of Hatha into your life, learning how to exist in the spiritual world and the modern-day world we are all accustomed to. Vinyasa is a more modern form of yoga that comes from the Hatha Asana practice. Vinyasa focuses on using breath with movement, harmonizing each movement in the yoga flow with an inhale or an exhale. No two vinyasa classes are the same and we will teach you how to sequence beautiful Vinyasa flows that will embody your unique teaching style.

Besides teaching the Hatha philosophy: this course also puts a focus on teaching traditional Ayurveda; the Ayurvedic diet, learning about your Ayurvedic profile (the doshas), using Ayurveda for preventative health and wellness. As a yoga teacher, it’s important to understand the human anatomy and how yoga influences our bodies on an anatomical level, our course teaches anatomy from its more traditional biological standpoint as well as the conjunction between yogic philosophy and biological principles.

This training is a great mix of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga to teach unification, strong foundations, good alignment as well as moving through posture and breathing.

Not only that, this teacher training includes teaching breath work and meditation. You can add massages, acupuncture, Tibetan bells, and other healing experiences in your free time at an additional cost and La Casa Shambala encourages you to bring instruments to play during evening Kirtan. Upon completion of this program, you will be a certified yoga instructor.

La Casa Shambala's methods of teaching are interactive, focusing on a fully immersive yoga experience, teaching, and group dynamics. This course includes methods of reflective self-analysis as well as a proper diet. All in a lovely, private Thai-style home.

This will allow you to enjoy and evolve in the perfect environment for your study. Whether you are just starting your journey or if you are a student who is already teaching and wants to deepen your knowledge, this course is perfect. La Casa Shambala prides itself on teaching strong foundations. This course will cover:
