900€ (online format); 1498 euro residential module from October 9 to 18

Our program is an in-depth, transforming teacher training laid out in 100 hours online module + 100 hours residential retreat of 9 nights/10 days, over the span of 6 months.

It covers well beyond the 200 hrs requirements set by Yoga Alliance, since we believe that becoming a teacher capable of sharing yoga requires commitment, passion and energy (and definitely more than 200 hrs of study). Hence, our program is really a 6-months course of study. During the non-contact weeks, you will be tutored by the teachers, and you will have time to read, teach, and study at your own pace. Our physical practice is strongly grounded in the understanding of anatomy, hence during the 6 months you are required to watch and complete the quiz for a 20 hrs online course on Anatomy for Yoga. This provides a further deepening of the topics that we explore during the classes on Anatomy applied to yoga poses that we teach in the residential weeks.

The first 100 hours of our 250 hours Teacher Training, Path of Yoga module, can be completed online with live classes on Zoom platform every Monday (from 7.00 to 9.00 AM CET), Thursday (from 7.00 to 9.00 AM CET) and Friday (from 12.00 to 14.00 CET).

Most of these classes will cover theory:
🔆history and philosophy of yoga
🔆sequencing
🔆anatomy

Every 𝙎𝙖𝙩𝙪𝙧𝙙𝙖𝙮 we will have a 𝑝𝑟𝑎𝑐𝑡𝑖𝑠𝑒 𝑠𝑒𝑠𝑠𝑖𝑜𝑛 (Bhakti Prema Vinyasa + Pranayama) followed by a 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑐𝑖𝑟𝑐𝑙𝑒 and a 𝑟𝑒𝑣𝑖𝑒𝑤 𝑠𝑒𝑠𝑠𝑖𝑜𝑛 of all the material presented in that week. This will be from 8-12.00 am CET.

You will be required to send ℎ𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑘 in the format of video of yourself teaching- which is an invaluable learning tool.
𝑉𝑖𝑟𝑡𝑢𝑎𝑙 𝑚𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑜𝑟𝑖𝑛𝑔 from our teachers is probably one of the 𝑠𝑡𝑟𝑜𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑠𝑡 𝑎𝑠𝑠𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑠 of this course and will help you grow as a yogi and as a teacher.


SOME PLUS OF GOING ONLINE

  • Virtual attendance is required for 60% of the classes, the classes you cannot make online will be recorded for you to view within the end of May.
  • We will have one month and half to go through a program that otherwise would be cover in 9 days, hence probably you will retain much more of it.
  • Due to coronavirus, our teachers have a lot more free time right now to serve you in your journey to becoming a yoga teacher .
  • The “Path of Yoga” course will be cheaper as you will not have to fly to Sicily and not have to pay for accommodation and food: it will cost, including the virtual post-course mentoring, and 100 hrs YA registered certification, 𝟵𝟬𝟬 𝗲𝘂𝗿𝗼𝘀 instead of 1498 euros.
  •  if you wish to take the course AGAIN in person in April 2021 at Floripa, you will not have to pay for it : you have the option to come over, enjoy our amazing community and take the classes you wish, pay only for food and stay.

Guests teachers are invited to share their knowledge: stay tuned for news on our 2020 faculty !

During the days between the first online session and second residential retreat the students have to submit short videos of themselves teaching simple sequences. They will receive feedbacks from the teacher for the videos they send, which is an invaluable tool of growth, since it helps tremendously the student to polish their cues, improve the energetic alignment expressed in the poses and their overall sequencing ability.

The students keep in touch between themselves through a private Facebook group which is a great platform to share, inform and grow our community.

In between the first online session and second week the students are required to collect 20 hrs of teaching. We strongly encourage the students to teach family members, friends or for free at local community centers to get practical experience teaching diverse populations.

The students need to keep a journal of the sequences they teach and possibly film the classes so that they can watch them afterwards for feedbacks. Students are welcomed to share their teaching experiences in our private facebook group.

This training is registered with Yoga Alliance.
