Yoga development programs exceed the guidelines set out by the Yoga Alliance, ensuring the highest educational standards of quality, integrity, and professionalism. Participants will develop a personal yoga practice appropriate for each individual while learning to foster a connection with their own inner wisdom and voice. It is from this deeper connection to oneself that the ability to communicate the practice to others in a dynamic and sensitive way blossoms.
We concentrate on exceptional training. The philosophy of our training is to make the practice of Yoga accessible, fun, safe, and honour the traditions of Yoga while playing a part in the evolution. The foundation of the program is grounded in an “Open Source” philosophy – all paths that lead to deeper understanding are honourable, and as awareness is expanding and evolving, our path is open to continuing inquiry and refinement. Every being is seen as a condensation of this awareness, with an innate wisdom. As the artist Michelangelo said, in order to make a sculpture he simply had to “remove all the stone that was not a part of the statue”. Yoga practice is as well, a process of revelation. In our methodology, Yoga practice is not imposed on the individual – Yoga practice is adapted to the individual. Teachers in training develop their innate, sometimes dormant skills of clear communication and leadership along with a personal practice suited to their individual needs and goals.
