Join Our 500-hour Integral Yoga Studies Teacher Training Course
Conscious awareness is a requirement for an integral yoga teacher to be able to hold space for their students. This teacher training course develops teachers—slowly and deeply—to embody the conscious awareness required for their daily living teaching practice. We are here in this world to learn through service to others; our teacher training programme is designed to help students feel ready to share the benefits of the practices with others in their communities.
In the tradition of Integral Yoga Dharma Ananda, this teacher training is extremely thorough and unique. The teaching is informed by contemplative education, scientific research, transpersonal psychology, classical yogic traditions and other wisdom traditions, elements of shamanism, as well more modern and culturally-responsive teachings. Our approach is universalist, inclusive and accessible, while also honouring and respecting tradition.
Why Our Teacher Training Course is Different
Many newly trained yoga teachers do not always feel confident enough to begin teaching. The length and depth of this course prepares teachers extremely well. There is no such thing as haste on the yogic path. Haste lacks consciousness, and yoga is the path of consciousness. This is one of the eight laws of the integral yogic path and an attitude that is unwavering in our teaching and supporting learning on the course.
The level of ongoing support provided to our students for navigating the awakening process and develop integrally as authentic teachers is one important feature of our teacher training course. This support never ends for our alumni who will remain connected through our student and teacher community of practice.
Additionally, we take the ethics very seriously. Firstly, the ethical foundations of the integral yogic path underpin the entire training course and are continually revisited. Secondly, the ethics of teaching is an area that is given attention in order to prepare students for their real-world living practice as yogis for life.
