Nadi Yoga 200 Hour Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training
February 2 - March 3NZD4800
Nadi Yoga 200hr Vinyasa Teacher Training provides graduates with a solid foundation and set of effective tools to teach yoga while deepening their own personal practice.
The focus of our 200hr training is to provide future teachers with the knowledge of anatomy, alignment and adjustments as well as yoga philosophy, embodiment, energetics and practice. This foundation will serve as a powerful base from which to teach. Our program is committed to the creative process of unlocking each new teacher’s voice so they find their authentic expression and talent.
“TWO AMAZINGLY EMPOWERING, PASSIONATE ABOUT YOGA WOMEN. NIANNA AND SANDI REALLY COMPLIMENTED EACH OTHERS ENERGY PERFECTLY. THEY HELD A SAFE AND BEAUTIFUL CRUCIBLE OF LEARNING.” – TRAINEE GRADUATE 2014
This training is appropriate for the dedicated yoga student who is ready to take their practice to the next level and begin to teach from their own heart, cultivated wisdom, and embodied experience. With a 20 person maximum attendance students will have individual attention and access to professional trainers as well as the benefits of a supportive community. After completion you will have gained the knowledge, empowerment and experience required for success and undergone your own personal transformation.
We are proud to offer this well designed training and serve the local community with exceptional yoga teachers. If you have been considering embarking on your teaching path or would like to take your practice to a whole new level, and have been looking for just the right training, I strongly encourage you to jump on board now.
This is not only a teacher training, it is a total immersion into the science, art and embodiment of yoga as a life transforming, life affirming and life enhancing spiritual mindbody practice. Everyone will benefit from a total immersion into the teachings and inner process within the framework of community and under the guidance of compassionate, dedicated and knowledgeable teachers.
“Both teachers managed to capture the essence of yoga. They are both utterly dedicated and passionate about sharing their knowledge and wisdom with the students. I loved the idea of getting us as students into teaching a community class and experience what it means to be a teacher first hand.” – Trainee Graduate 2014
