Proper Yoga Attire

Proper Fashion – What You Need to Wear or Have

* comfortable, loose clothing for teacher training sessions (nothing fancy required, you might want to check some organic fashion though). We understand that fashion is not important at all. But why should we not enjoy some nice clothing when we feel like it? Or – why should we practice in ugly attire? It is not an ego thing, it is just about feeling well and enjoying the nicer things in life. And if you really like your yoga t-shirt or yoga pants, why not enjoy them? Totally nothing wrong with being well dressed. And if you want some additional reading on the subject of what to wear to your yoga class, you can do so here.

* yoga matayur-yoga

* your textbooks & neti-pot

* small, thin blanket for meditation

* water bottle (NO GLASS BOTTLES ~ BPA Free Bottles or Stainless Steel Only)

* course materials you have ordered

* energy or protein bars (optional, but suggested)

* hand towel for your yoga mat (optional, but suggested, especially in warmer climates). You might consider getting an eco-friendly yoga mat, for example here.

* Vitamin C, Zinc & Electrolytes (optional)

 

And What Should You Expect of Yin Yoga Teacher Training?

The 45 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training is for anyone & everyone regardless if the intention is to teach, refine teaching skills, or deepen their practice.

We will learn how Yin Yoga developed through Indian Tantric Yoga philosophy & ancient Taoism. We will discuss the differences & similarities between Yin Yoga & other types of Yang Yoga.

Our Asana practice will focus on anatomical variation learning how we support all people in this practice. We will dissect 24 Yin postures studying how to modify each posture to fit the individual’s needs.

We will explore how Yin Yoga affects the systems of the human body supporting healthy function. Pranayama and Meditation are an integral part of Yin Yoga, as our main objective is to find balance between mind, body and spirit creating a deep sense of peace and allowing us to sit longer in meditation as the “observer” without being affected by “the illusions”. We will practice and be playful as we navigate class sequencing.

It is my greatest hope that whatever Students come to Yin Yoga Teacher Training to find, they will find it or be pointed in the right direction.

Brittany Zart (Ireland 2015)

The program was so much more than just learning how to teach yoga, although it certainly taught me that too, and well. It was also such a powerful exploration of yoga philosophy and a great opportunity to study yoga passionately with like-minded people from around the world. I learned such invaluable lessons and made life-long friends.

Joanna Smolarczyk (Scotland 2016)

Even if you’re not planning on becoming a yoga teacher, but simply want to know the foundations to deepen your personal yoga practice, Yogacara YTT is the place to go. I have never felt so different and yet so myself as I did at the end of this incredible journey with nine amazing humans that I now proudly call my family.

Kristin Ollinger (Costa Rica 2015)

What attracted me to Yogacara was the small class size and the duration of the program. The small class size allowed for the teachers to get to know each student and it allowed the students to bond with one another and create a very comfortable setting in which to learn and share.

Rachel Hollewell (Costa Rica 2016)

Yogacara teacher training courses are truly an inspirational and life changing experience that you should not miss out on. The teachers are truly amazing, I couldn’t of asked for anything more and I cannot wait to take my next course with you. Everyone should experience Yogacara for themselves. Thank you so much for everything.

We Welcome You to Your Yoga Teacher Training! 

All About Yoga

What is yoga? I deeply believe that yoga is love.

Of course, the health benefits are obvious and pretty much impossible to deny, but the real value of yoga lies beneath, under the surface. And in spite of the fact that we all love to look good and enjoy practicing in proper attire (especially women but men are no huge exception, we all like to look good, no matter what we do), the real value is in it’s deep benefits to the inner world, to our core. And at the bottom or at the very base if you will, is the foundational energy of everything. Call it whatever you want, different people and different schools have different terminologies but what it fundamentally is is love.

You definitely don’t have to believe it. It is something that will manifest itself through your actions, through your interaction with the outer space, with the world. Others will feel it. Your operational frequency changes as you progress through the various positions and deep meanings of yoga. Breath deeply, relax, feel the beautiful prana and enjoy the ancient energy flowing barrierlessly through your body. Live, love.
