The word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit root “yuj” which means to yoke or unite. This training is designed to help you find harmony within yourself, to yoke your true Self with your ego and personality. It offers wisdom, insight and honesty into your life and how best to use yoga in it as you move forward and grow through Spirit. This training has been developed and is offered to you from the heart with kindness, strength of character, courage, and authenticity by its instructors.
To be very honest, this is like no other basic yoga teacher training we have come across. We used to call it basic teacher training. But it is so much more than just the basics. Yes, you will develop a firm foundation of the fundamentals of yoga, including the asana (poses), pranayama (breathing practices) and methods to reduce stress and find balance. But you will also discover your personal strengths and weaknesses through yogic philosophy and the chakra system. You’ll have a caring guide as you learn to balance yourself and your life.
At Maitri Yoga we are committed to helping you brilliantly shine with everything we teach you. We will challenge you to be your best self and live with authenticity and virtue.
The training will be 12 months long from the time you start. For example if you start in April you will be finished in March. The general schedule is the 2nd weekend and the last Wednesday evening of each month (generally 3 days per month). Of course we will have to adjust the schedule to work around holidays at times. Everyone will get to enjoy a long weekend retreat along the way. The retreat will be held each May. Two possible start dates for this year long training begin in:
Each quarter of the training will have a specific focus and will follow both the seasons as well as the four primary elements.
While thoroughly covering asana (postures) and learning to teach them is important, Maitri Yoga focuses on learning the depths of the practice of yoga and gaining a deeper understanding of the Self. Learning to live and practice what you will be teaching is just as important as offering a nice flow to an asana yoga class.
