Based out of hand-picked boutique venue in Europe, the world-class trainings consist of small groups and stay true to the essence of Vinyasa: creative, contemporary, and playful. This is an immersion into a transformational personal physical practice. It's a hands-on catapult into skillful Vinyasa teaching and the business of being a teacher. It's a toolkit that will help you find your voice and your calling as a yoga teacher.
Casa Palheiro, Casa Celeiro and Casa Acores are just a few names of the unique charming rooms at Casa Paço D’Ilhas Guesthouse. Some of them are full little houses in the garden and some are rooms in the main building. All rooms are decorated with their own unique style and colors and are shared for 2-4 people with shared bathrooms. Some single rooms are available, make sure to let us know early if you wish to book these.
The indoor yoga shala has lots of light and is beautifully situated in the garden where we can also use two outdoor yoga decks/terraces (we always try to move around to different places depending on the task of the day and the weather). In addition, the garden has two swimming pools, a veggie garden, plenty of areas to hang out and hide out, and a lovely fire pit.
Upon completion of this yoga teacher training, students are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®). Registration with Yoga Alliance provides a globally recognized credential.
The private retreat center is located in a small village, with lots of garden space and a pool. True North Vinyasa will close the door to the outside world and let you immerse fully into a physical practice. You'll start practicing the art of teaching, shifting from being a student to becoming aware of the teacher's perspective.
You will focus increasingly on the teacher's skill set and toolbox. You are introduced to sequencing, alignment, adjusting, and assisting, class themes, anatomy. You'll start to connect the dotted lines between ancient teachings and modern yoga. You are invited to explore finding your own voice and offering, as well as the technicalities of designing and successfully executing classes for different types of students and needs.
True North Vinyasa will invite you to fully step into the role of a yoga teacher. You will continue your daily practice, adding a more thorough analysis of each class and incorporating an increasing amount of hands-on teaching and adjusting. You are introduced to the skills needed to build a business in yoga as well as marketing, branding, and public relations.
Clear verbal communication and a varied, inspirational way with words are essential parts of your success as a yoga teacher. While the training is in English, True North Vinyasa is aware that you may not teach in English. They will encourage you to work in your language whenever possible but they can only offer effective support in English, Swedish, and Spanish.
True North Vinyasa offers this course as a 22-day with additional preparation time and follow-up assignments before and after. The intensive format allows you to fully dedicate yourself to a transformational practice and journey. They believe the personal immersion is a key component in becoming yoga teacher.
True North Vinyasa believes in the power of beautiful surroundings and good nourishing food. For this training, they have carefully picked two amazing venues in Portugal.
True North Vinyasa a strong team of two main teachers. Together, they have 17 years of combined teaching experience and over 30 years of combined practice. They are ready to share their knowledge of owning a successful studio, organizing fully booked retreats, sequencing memorable classes and designing unique, sold-out workshops. They are also ready to share their mistakes, insights from embarrassing teaching moments, and less inspiring trainings.
Group size for this training is limited to 20 students, making the student-teacher ratio 10:1. This is unusual and guarantees individual attention and a high quality teacher training.
True North Vinyasa have a solid worldwide network and will continue to offer insight and mentorship for an unlimited time after the teacher training has ended.
True North Vinyasa believes in a strong, diverse team and will invite inspiring and experienced guest faculty for an added perspective.
Being a yoga teacher is competitive. While True North Vinyasa gives you a strong skill set to become an amazing teacher, they are also dedicated to sending you off with solid knowledge of how to build your brand, run your business, and succeed financially. True North Vinyasa dedicates much more time to this than most teacher trainings.
True North Vinyasa stays true to the core of modern Vinyasa. This means they don't provide answers and never ask you to memorize a sequence or a script. In fact, they won't even give you a sequence. Instead, you will focus on the foundational knowledge you need in order to create your own sequences and scripts with confidence. You will learn the craft of teaching Vinyasa.
The training follows and greatly exceeds the outline of Yoga Alliance and will earn you a 200-hour yoga teacher certificate. But above all, it will mark the beginning of your new life as a skilled, articulate, creative, and inspirational Vinyasa teacher. From day one you will be guided in deepening your practice and fine tuning the skills you'll need to be an empowered and empowering yoga teacher. Your own personal practice and choices, on and off the mat, make up the foundation of your offerings as a teacher. Exploring the refinement of body, movement, breath, energy flow, and clarity of mind is the base of the training. Be prepared to push your mental and physical boundaries throughout these intensive three weeks. Be prepared for major shifts, changes, and transitions - again, some of the key components of Vinyasa Flow yoga.
Note: This is a physically demanding teacher training aimed for those who really want to teach Vinyasa Flow yoga.
