Peace Yoga Teacher Training

Yoga Teaching Course Information
This course will provide you not only with a life-long livelihood, but also a life, ‘long’, ‘enriched’ and ‘fulfilling’.

Yoga is the oldest recorded health science developed as part of the tantric civilization which existed in india and all parts of the world more than 10,000 years ago.

India preserved the tradition, within their philosophy called ’darshana’, the miracle of yoga was hidden in the mists of time.

The word yoga means ‘unity’ or’ oneness’ derived from the sanskrit word ’yuj’ which means ‘to join’. On a practical level it provides the means of bringing health and balance to the body, mind and emotions.

Yoga unifies the 3 fundamental requirements for a person to achieve a contented life:

Physical health within the body.
Psychological well-being and heightened consciousness.
A joyful spirit, with accompanied inner peace.
On this path you will learn how to balance and harmonize the vital energy within the body. By purifying and strengthening the body and thereby preventing the leakage of this vital energy, you will find stores of it increasing within yourself thus stimulating higher levels of awareness.

You will learn how these subtle energies flowing through the body can be harnessed and controlled, how to harmonize body, breathe and mind and also open the currents of psycho-physical energy to penetrate the understanding of super consciousness.

Yoga is more than physical; it is cellular, mental, emotional and spiritual and teaches the highest principles of spiritual living. It is meditation with movement leading to a body filled with ease, not disease; a useful existence, a joyful spirit.

You were born because you have a special gift; something you can contribute to make the world better. At no other time did the world need yoga more than now… by learning techniques from our wisdom traditions, you can still your own mind, heal your own inner world and with your own peace bring peace to all those around you.

Just as one star has the capacity to light up the heavens, one peaceful meditating soul has the capacity to light up all lives about them.

By learning to teach yoga you will be involved in the most rewarding and fulfilling profession, so badly needed not only by the individuals within our communities, but by the world itself. This is a career in mind-body health where you will enable yourself to touch the lives of thousands of students.

Bks Iyengar says
“learn to learn, learn to teach, teach to learn and teach to teach….”
You will equip yourself with specialized skills-organizational, entrepreneurial, and professional as you learn the principles and techniques of this holistic, healing science. The benefits of this course in natural living will improve not only your physical, mental and spiritual well-being but lead to greater happiness within your relationships and entire environment.

Peace yoga is a classical form and needs to be taught with conviction and sincerity. Through the expansion of your own consciousness about the essential truths presented through these incomparable teachings, you will be pivotal in enriching the lives of others. It doesn’t get better than that!

You will personally experience the joy of not only becoming a yoga instructor but a true yogi as well. You never knew you could feel so good!

You will penetrate the profound nature of yoga which takes you from the surface of your skin to the depths of your very soul. It is a journey we will share together into wholeness and delight.
