What is Special in our Semi-Online Yoga Teacher Training?
Almost 100% of the online sessions are live and interactive. We will very rarely use pre-recorded videos so that participants will be able to have an as close to the real-time, real-life experience as possible. There will be daily online classes for the initial period of about 10 weeks.
You will be under the guidance of at least 4 instructors. This will get you in touch with a wide variety of teaching styles and personalities while giving you fully comprehensive knowledge and support.
The resources and recordings, workbooks and interactive information packs are also made fully available. You can access and download all the materials any time to make re-capping and continuing to deepen your understanding of the modules super easy.
The last 2 weeks of the course will support you in consolidating your knowledge of Yoga while staying at Yogafarm Italy. This is the place for your teaching practicum as well as the time to learn and perform hands-on adjustments and meet your fellow teachers in training.
The retreat-like intensity of the final 2 weeks will surely make for a once in a lifetime experience.
About Transformational Yoga®
Transformational Yoga® is one of the most comprehensive styles India has to offer. It is based on the integral teachings of Sri Aurobindo, a famous Indian philosopher, Yogi and spiritual reformer of the 20th century.
The teaching draws from the essentials of Hatha Yoga, Prana Yoga, Raja Yoga, Mantra Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Kundalini Yoga. A synthesis which stands for a thoroughly holistic practice and extensive knowledge.
Being an integral approach Transformational Yoga® also ensures that you take your Yoga off the mat into daily life.
The unique style is founded and created by Swami Vidyanand, a renowned Indian Yoga master, who you will meet during your final certification.
The practice comes with an in depth focus of physical asana, the energetic system of the chakras, mantras as well as breathing and meditation techniques.
The asana styles we teach in the Transformational Yoga® Teacher Training are Hatha and Transformational Yoga with Vinyasa Yoga as a secondary style. The course will also introduce you to the Integral System of Sri Aurobindo as well as to a form of Kundalini Yoga.
Transformational Yoga provides you with the esoteric knowledge you need to purify your body, stabilize your emotions, focus your mind, and increase your spiritual well-being.
The spiritual dimension can be seen as the baseline of the Yoga style: Ultimately the “Transformational Technique” seeks to re-connect every human being with their Inner Guidance or True Self. The perfume of this connection is a much deeper access to your innate vision, insight, truth and intuition.
