Delight Academy Open Day: An Invitation to the ​Delight Yoga (Pre) Teacher Training

Have you been practicing yoga regularly and feel ready to explore the yoga path more deeply? Join our program director Katiza Satya on​ ​​7th April for an introduction to the wisdom teachings of yoga, the practices which form the basis of ou​r​​​ ​(pre)​ ​teacher training programs and find out if you're ready for the Sva Dharma Teachings. During this Open Day session, you will learn more about the structure and unique teachings of what we call the ​Sva Dharma Teachings, the core of our yoga trainings. You will meet the primary teacher, get a taste for the practices and the substance of the teachings, and have an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the yoga journey.

​The Delight Yoga Teacher Training presents a body of teachings called the Sva Dharma Teachings​. It offers ​a full yogic path:  a Yoga Foundation Program, followed by the ​Basic​ Teacher​ Training ​(​200 hrs​)​, which eventually leads to the Advanced Studies (350 hrs). This “yogic​ ​training” ​is developed and taught directly by Katiza Satya​ and ​Kevin Sahaj, who are committed to provide an open and inspiring education while allowing you to uncover your true interests and potential (Sva Dharma). Rooted in the tradition of authentic lineages, the program aims to bring yoga back to its true place as a living art of self-realization and as a complete path to awakening. 

This training is a sacred ground to receive guidance and practices to become a real yogi (one whose life is dedicated to awakening). It is an immersion in all the aspects of yoga sadhana equally, not just​ in​ its physical and therapeutic aspects. The rich spiritual and philosophical depth of yoga is also a major part of the training. Students will experience directly how all the yogic practices can be woven together for deep insights into yoga as a living art and spiritual awakening, and it is from here that the true teacher arises.

With over 30 years of living practice experience, Katiza Saty​a​ and her partner Kevin Sahaj are continuously evolving organically as a response to what is needed to best serve the needs of the students and under the guidance of their living master teachers.

"We offer the Delight Teacher Training in deep gratitude to our masters whose compassion, love and light gave us the sacred teachings of yoga to guide humanity towards awakening."

The Yoga Foundation Program (​Pre Teacher Training) is the ideal training ​if you want to explore ​and immerse ​yourself in ​the true gifts of yoga​​​​. It can be pursued as a stand-alone intensive course or in preparation for the Basic Teacher Training. This program takes place on 28-29 April and 17-20 May (6 days) in Amsterdam. You can find complete information here.

The Basic​ ​Teacher​​ ​Training ​(​200 hrs) consists of 2 weeks in Amsterdam in the first half of  August and 1 week in Portugal​ at the end of September 2018 (for data and complete information, see here​)​. During this 3-weeks Intensive Program, you will immerse yourself fully into the process of yoga, experiencing directly what it is like to live and practice full-time. All you will need is patience, dedication and sincerity. The rest will unfold naturally and gracefully.

The Advanced Studies (350 hrs) present The Heart and The Mind trainings as the core teachings, which are offered in retreat format by Satya and Sahaj and focus on the innermost purpose of yoga: to realize our true nature as awakened beings. The program has a flexible modular schedule, offering other relevant subjects such as Ayurveda, Mindfulness and Healing. The next Advanced Studies​ will start again in early 2019​.

​Join us on this Open Day on​ ​7th ​April from 15:00-17:00, at the Academy home base at Prinseneiland, Amsterdam. The event is free of charge, but please register in advance using the schedule below.
