Welcome to The Path of Yoga Family! We are a team of experienced yogis, teacher-trainers and good friends. Between us we have taught dozens of training all over the world, and we come from a variety of backgrounds, yogic styles, and lineages. We have come together to create this exceptional course and transformational month.
We share a love for a strong yet nourishing dynamic practice married with traditional Hatha. The practically applied philosophy and sacred traditions of the East, married with the discoveries of modern sports science are the essence and heart of this immersion course.
Join us for this transformational month where we will live and breathe yoga together, developing ourselves physically and mentally and learning how to teach these transformative techniques to others. At the end of the month, you will be a certified Yoga Alliance 200-hour teacher, but more importantly, you will have the necessary confidence, knowledge, and teaching skills to blossom into a world-class yoga teacher.
We look forward to practicing with you!
Mala Dhara Eco Resort is a true gem of a resort, blending luxurious living with living in nature. They have the wonderful choice of outdoor and indoor yoga shala, both are bright, open, and circular and provide the perfect environment for deepening your practice. The rooms are peaceful, spacious, and air-conditioned.
The accommodations are originally and stunningly decorated with lovely and unique attention to detail; you can choose between a shared dorm room or shared villa room. All rooms have ample living space, with many areas to find privacy or socialize with the rest of the group in your free time or over meals.
Students who complete their subsequent training are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).
The Yoga Alliance certified training provides a month of Hatha, Vinyasa, Breathwork, Meditation, philosophy, self-development, healing, and all the skills necessary to become a successful yoga teacher. A yoga teacher training course can be, and often is the beginning of a new chapter in your lives. It is not the final objective or goal, but a beautiful step on the Path of Yoga.
Each morning, you will start the day with three hours of practice made up of asana, pranayama, and meditation, followed by a healthy breakfast. You will then move into lectures on a variety of topics ranging from philosophy, to anatomy, to sequencing, and structure.
In the afternoons you will go deeper into the methodology of the techniques and practice how to teach and better understand them. This is a great opportunity to spend a month with three experienced teacher trainers, including both the founding teachers of Path of Yoga.
An exploration of the classical traditions and their core philosophies, including Hatha, Tantra, and Vinyasa yoga. Learn about where the roots of yoga first took hold and how it has branched into where it is now.
The anatomy of movement and study of the key body systems. You will explore how the body works, and apply this important knowledge in safe and effective practice and teaching.
Daily study and practice of postures and their alignment, adjustments, energetic and health benefits, modifications, and effective teaching cues.
Ancient yogis described and revered the anatomy and potency of the energy body, what lay beyond the physical form. There are many layers to understanding and experiencing prana, this prime life force and how it moves through the Chakras or energetic centers. These teachings are at the very core of what makes yoga such a potent and timeless practice.
The breath is the connection to life and the foundation of all classical Hatha yoga practice. The breath has a profound influence on the nervous system and a deep effect on life quality, both on and off the yoga mat. Many practices will be offered from basic breath awareness to “advanced” pranayama.
You will learn how to use the toolkit offered in the yoga system to create meaningful sequences. A good class is not just anatomically sound but also meaningful on more subtle levels.
Understanding your own mind and its makeup is an important part of being a guide in any practice. The power of meditation is significant. You will study and practice a variety of techniques that are aimed at the development of your own personal meditation practice and being able to hold space when teaching.
A fascinating and practical science of life from ancient India that offers tools to better understand yourself and others therapeutically through the context of the doshas, gunas, and prana.
The necessary skills to confidently lead a yoga class is obviously an important part of taking a teacher training course. There will be plenty of practice teaching: one on one, in small groups, and in front of the whole class coupled with the art and science of teaching and presenting.
Yoga has become a bustling market for teachers and students alike, and there are a number of ways to you can stand out from the crowd and jump start your teaching career. Path of Yoga will show you how.
The 200-hour certificate will be awarded upon completion of all course requirements. This certificate is all you need to immediately apply for your Yoga Alliance RYT200 Certification, a certification recognized worldwide. A detailed 150+ page Training Manual is also included.
We have 5 wonderful courses at Maladhara for 2020, lucky us and lucky you! Our teaching team will be as follows for each course:
Feb 10th - March 7th: James French (Lead trainer & School founder), Claudio, Candy, and 2 assistants
James was born in London and first discovered yoga in 2003, while at Drama School. However, he truly caught the bug a few years later while performing in a Shakespeare production which toured India. His routine of sunrise practices overlooking the rooftops of Udaipur with an old yogi called Prakash sealed the deal. Since completing his 500 hours with Tribe, James has done 200 hours with Max Strom and taken further training with David Swenson, Yogrishi Vishvketu, and Tiffany Cruickshank & continues his studies on advanced trainings with Jason Crandell.
Susan Marrufo, MA, E-RYT 500, left the United States and a job in advertising in 2008 to travel internationally and experience life beyond the confines of her cultural conditioning. She received her first 500-hr yoga certification in Thailand in 2009, where she began her studies of the classical yogic scriptures and delved deeply into esoteric tantric philosophy. She is the Co-founder of Samarasa Center in Los Angeles, California.
As a former Basketball player, Yoga initially became a way to support athletic training. A natural curiosity towards the healing power of Yoga led to a journey to India, where Claudio lived in Hindu Ashrams during a three year period. This time in India, the connection to yogic tradition and the study of texts and philosophy under the guidance of his Guru in a Bramhin community enables Claudio to bring a deeper understanding of the practice being ultimate, a spiritual one steeped in faith and devotion.
Candy began her yoga journey with a curiosity for meditation, seeking alternative medicine as a way to heal her anxiety and burnout. That led her to yoga asana and reconnecting with her body as a way of self-medicating. As it tends to, yoga became her way of life, carrying those lessons and insights off the matt. Her inspiration as a teacher is to get people connected to their breath, to trust their bodies, and trust the unique journey that will unfold within each individual through this process of movement, breath & mental focus.
Sharon has been teaching yoga in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2008 and practicing since 2002. Her yoga practice has brought her joy, grounding, challenge, strength, growth and constant learning. In September 2019 she moved to Sicily indefinitely to explore life beyond what she had grown accustomed to in the United States. Her yoga practice serves many roles: a laboratory of physical and mental self exploration, a coping mechanism, and a way to connect to something bigger than herself. The practice of yoga has helped her find her life purpose – to share yoga with as many people as possi
