This yoga teacher training program is the most well-rounded training available today. You will learn about all aspects of yoga from the classical, modern, physical, spiritual, energetic, and emotional.
You will take the world’s most popular and versatile physical yoga asana classes: hatha, vinyasa flow, yin, and restorative.
In addition you will be introduced to many ancient, often not taught, techniques to help you in the future: joint exercises, kriya (cleansing techniques), and Ayurveda – a school of ancient Indian medicine & yogas’ sister science.
Shanti Yoga offers a yoga teacher training that is priced so the teachers can receive a living wage. There is a registration fee that covers the out-of-pocket costs for holding the training. The fee includes private accommodation (1 person per room). To keep costs low students are responsible for their own breakfast and dinner. A big group dinner is provided and is often our past guest’s favorite part.
Once the registration fee is paid the yoga teacher training is provided. We do not expect additional payment, although students are encouraged to provide a tip at the end of the program. We want our teachers to have the abundance they need to serve.
Shanti Yoga supports locals in numerous ways. Shanti Yoga supports the communities where we teach by purchasing local products whenever possible. At least 10% of profits per season are spent on local initiatives that benefit the community. Finally, we emphasize hiring locals whenever possible, which provides a necessary source of income.
We believe in giving back to our students in as many ways as we can. One student per training attends completely free via scholarship. Application must be approved and truly based on need. If there’s need and aptitude we hire students to help with drop-ins and other tasks needed at the school. This provides valuable hands-on practice and experience. We utilize our numerous yogi contacts across the world to help our students in their future yoga careers, if they choose to pursue teaching. Finally, for students who join our repeat program they’re allowed to attend the same training as many times as they like in the future for free. They just have to pay for their own meals and accommodations. Wow!
