The Delight Yoga Academy
Basic Teacher Training (200 hrs)
With Kevin Sahaj, Katiza Satya
WOULD YOU LIKE TO DEEPEN YOUR YOGA JOURNEY?
This is a unique and transformative training program, with fully accredited and inspiring teachers, which will be held in 2 parts: 2 weeks non-residential in Amsterdam and 1 week residential retreat in Portugal.
This intensive training will be based on the Astanga Yoga path of the Patanjali Yoga Sutras and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. This foundation will give you experience and understanding of the yogic path. Starting from the most tangible we will later proceed to the most subtle; from the physical body (asanas / body postures) to the energy body, to the mind.
We will follow the tradition of Krishnamacharya, and the main core practice will be based on the Astanga Vinyasa Yoga system. The Primary Series will be dissected and studied in-depth and we will also be adding many other elements from the body of Hatha yoga practices.
Practices like kriyas (cleansing techniques), asana, breath awareness, basic pranayamas, visualization, mantras and meditation, will be presented and practiced within the course from the very beginning.
We will at this stage give you the guidance and tools necessary to realize the need and urgency to make the leap into real commitment, real effort, real longing to awaken, which is the core of the yogi, what moves the yogi towards liberation, and it is from here that he/she can guide others. We will acknowledge the different bodily and mental constitutions, by giving a brief introduction to Ayurveda. In this phase you will undergo a profound realignment and purification of the physical body, experiencing already the results in your own energy and mental/emotional body.
When you have accomplished this first level with commitment and dedication, you will feel confident to share with others what you have learned through self-investigation and self practice.
