Amrita Yoga & Wellness 2013 Teacher Training
Do you have a burning desire to learn more about the ancient, healing system of Yoga? Want to gain in-depth knowledge within Asana and the 8 other limbs of Yoga? Inspired to one day be able to share the knowledge of Yoga with others? Looking to teach what you love?
We are happy to announce our Winter 2013 300 hour Yoga Teacher Training! If you have previously taken a Teacher Training and feel it left you unprepared to teach this training will give you the seeds of knowledge you desire to further blossom as a teacher. If you are looking for an in-depth training to provide a strong foundation within the system of Yoga; but designed to guide you on the path to finding your divine voice as a teacher this training will support and nurture you on the path to teach! If you are a dedicated student who desires to weave the 8 limbs of yoga more deeply into your daily practice this training will provide you the knowledge your inner voice is searching for!
We at Amrita Yoga & Wellness have designed a training to give you a wholistic, in-depth, personalized, and complete foundational learning experience taught by our experienced on-staff teachers and renowned guest teachers who truly embody the system of Yoga!
Why 300 Hours of training?
Through our years of teaching and taking many, many trainings collectively we truly feel in order to get the most solid foundation you must not only learn about the system, but practice, embody, and live what you desire to teach! In our 300 hour training (more than many offer as the standard initial training is 200 hours) it will not only be learning the 8 limbs of Yoga and more; but practice of the system weaved into your daily life, hours of assisting and practicing teaching Yoga. All this will be completed with the guidance of experienced, knowledgable, passionate teachers who have made this practice a lifestyle and have dedicated themselves to sharing the divine knowledge with others.
