THE TRAINING

The main focus: Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa, and how to (ethically) present yourself in the  media.

The course contains a lot of practical classes, focusing on safe and correct alignment in the asana, principles of demonstration, and hands-on adjustment and assistance. Throughout the duration of the training, you will be asked to teach mini-classes to your fellow students, thus gaining confidence and deepening your teaching skills.

Other Yoga topics include: anatomy and physiology, introduction to the Ayurvedic medicine, Yoga therapy (shatkriya, Yoga asanas for different ailments), meditation and Yoga Nidra, history and philosophy of Yoga, tools of Yoga (Pranayama, mudra, bandha, mantra) introduction to other Yoga styles (Yin Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, Aerial Yoga), marketing strategy, ethics in yoga business etc.
As a part of this program, you will learn about photography, videography and editing your pictures and videos. We will start from the beginning and bring you to a level where you’d be comfortable taking great pictures and videos of yourself and friends practicing yoga. Additionally you will learn basics of WordPress so that you could create and maintain your own website. By the end of the training, you will have one or many ready to share multimedia clip about you, your Yoga practice, your experience going through this life-changing event – your personal story.. This clip will be a great way to share your experience with friends and family, and market yourself if you are looking for volunteer/teacher jobs.

THE VENUE

This place was built from the ground  up, with the vision to be a place to immerse yourself into wellness. With 3 Yoga shalas, a small dining area and beautifully decorated wooden cottages, you will not feel the time pass, in this bubble of peace. You will have the choice of staying in private cottages, shared cottages (2 beds), or dorms (4 beds).

FOOD

Included in the event are 3 vegetarian, homemade meals, made from ingredients the owner carefully selects himself by traveling to specific markets in the very early morning hours, to guarantee quality and freshness. Vegan meals can be arranged.

Kat dedicated her life to the spiritual enquiry and evolution and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience with other fellow seekers. She studied the classical Hatha Yoga in Nepal and India, and Ashtanga Vinyasa in India. Kat teaches asana practice, Pranayama, meditation, Yoga Nidra, Yoga philosophy and theory, teaching methodology and yogic anatomy.

Apart from Yoga, Kat likes cats, chocolate and good coffee 🙂

Laura

http://blueindigocottage.com/portfolio/laura/

Since her childhood, Laura has always been busy playing different kinds of sports, tennis being her greatest passion. Because of that, she chose an education to become a sports teacher. After her graduation, Laura started to  teach tennis to adults and children, simultaneously working at a gym teaching group classes like aerobics, steps and body pump. Around this time in her life she discovered yoga. From this moment on there was a natural shift from a fast, busy, active and sportive lifestyle, to a life where Laura started listening to what she really needed.
After years of practicing Yoga, Laura decided it was time for the next step and she subscribed to and completed a Yoga TTC in Goa, India, after which she started teaching Yoga full time. Besides her passion for yoga, she genuinely loves to teach. She can really help you to find your own teaching path due to her education as a sports instructor, many years of teaching experience, and the numerous interns she has helped develop their teaching skills. Laura teaches Vinyasa, Yin yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, Yoga philosophy, teaching methodology and student teaching practice.
