21 day intensive - 200/300 hour Integral Vinyasa yoga teacher training
with Nina Vukas & guest teachers
January 26th - February 16th 2019.
Join us on this beautiful journey - a transformational 21 day Yoga Alliance certified 200 /300* hour yoga teacher training in Sri Lanka. This is our second intensive TTC in Sri Lanka and, after the jungle setting, for 2019. we have decided to move closer to mama Ocean and offer a residential training held in a beautiful beachfront colonial villa with a pool.
The shala is bright and spacious with ocean views and plenty of space for practice and immersion into yoga studies, and beautiful garden with tall palm trees offering shade is a perfect spot for afternoon meditation sessions.
The package includes tuition with the manual and all materials, accommodation, breakfast, lunch and two dinners (welcome dinner and closing dinner). There are plenty of restaurants near by for every budget as well as a fully equipped kitchen in the villa.
The core teachings of Spanda Vinyasa yoga school are rooted in Integral Vinyasa method which stems from Hatha yoga teachings, classical yoga philosophy, Tantric teachings, Ayurveda's understanding of nature and the five elements, as well as today’s understanding of anatomy and movement biomechanics. The method follows traditional teaching of Vinyasa Krama, a system of progressions chosen to serve the gentle unfolding and integration of our body / mind, and expands from there.
Learn teaching tools like proper alignment, creative yet intelligent method of sequencing, hands on adjustments and assists, modifications and adaptations, pranayama, mantra, mudra, yoga nidra and learn how to use those tools to create safe, meaningful, mindful yoga practice. Our goal is to create safe and open environment, offer clear instruction and help you every step of the way.
To ensure quality and individual approach, this training is limited to 14 students.
