Most importantly students learn valuable knowledge and numerous techniques/ practices and how to use them in a practical way to balance their own body-mind and physiology.
Our Teacher trainings are a comprehensive Introduction to Yoga and its ancient system of personal liberation and transformation a powerful, transformative, and evolutionary process. The most important requirement is a desire to grow, explore who you are and honor your intuition. Our mission is to present yoga and its ability to transform the body and mind in an honest, inspiring and beautiful way. Allowing the individual to express through yoga their own body. The course is about self exploration and connection. It's an opportunity for you to explore and strengthen your yoga practice and knowledge of yourself. In the training we cover both traditional knowledge with modern anatomy and bio mechanics wisdon to create a safe and sustainable practice.
We embue in our students that the physical practice of yoga is as individual as your finger prints and safety is paramount in your teaching and self practice. Our trainings are multi discipline and rooted in tradition. Incorporating similar philosophy’s of Hatha Yoga and Five Element Yoga practice of Tattwa Shuddhi Sadhana. For me your yoga practice should create, maintain and restore the optimum structure of the spine. Create strength, flexibilty and optimal structural alignment and fuctioning of the various body systems.
Our heartfelt truth is Yoga is for everyone. This is why i have named the school Vibrantly Alive Yoga, a Hatha Yoga school rooted deeply in the yogic traditions coming from TKV Desikachar, AG Mohan as taught to me by Master Yogi Peter John Clifford. Most of the content of the teacher training manual is from this lineage and directly from my teacher Peter Clifford of Anahata Yoga Australia. We have an expert international team of accomplished and senior teachers.
Yoga Teacher Curriculum:
The course runs generally all day Saturday and Sunday, from 0800-1730 with breaks for breakfast, tea and lunch. The teachers are all accomplished teachers in their respective area's. As the director of this Yoga Teacher Training I have chosen my closest and most respected colleagues of like minded yogis to deliver a unique, detailed and empowering course. Throughout the course are mini quiz’s and 5 written test’s and several practical teaching labs and of course homework and required reading during the breaks between the physical class dates.
There is a strong self development component in this teacher training coming from my belief that teaching yoga is more than technical expertise and the ability to do advanced poses it is the development of awareness, compassion and connection to yourself. Last a dissolving of the ego. It is my deep belief that the tools in this foundation yoga teacher training will give students the ability to create vitalizing Vinyasa Classes, Restorative Yin Yoga Classes and Energising Elemental Yoga Classes for all types of people and age groups. Creating a versatile teacher.

*What did you get out of the training?
I think I got a very well founded knowledge on Yoga, especially Hatha Yoga, including Yoga philosophy,
Ayurveda and the physiology of the body as well as a comprehensive training of the fundamentals of
Hatha Yoga asanas.
*And how has the training impacted your life and or understanding of yoga?
De"nitely has the training impacted my personal and professional life in many di#erent kind of ways, one
of the most important changes is that I became more conscious and aware regarding food and nutri$on,
what I put into my body and how this might e#ect; I also became more aware of my own body, its
structure, func$on and physiology, how it works and what might be wrong if it does not work anymore; I
become more conscious of myself, my weaknesses and strengths, as well as regarding the rela$on of
myself towards other people; also becoming more aware of certain a&tudes and values like self-respect,
self-love and respect towards other human beings and living beings in general.
Yes, this training has de"nitely impacted my life and will for sure have a long las$ng e#ect on my life, as it
is an internal change which took place (and s$ll will take place) and not an external one…
*And if you would recommend it.
I would recommend the training for anybody who is interested in yoga, especially Hatha Yoga and Yoga
therapy, who aims to con$nually work on him- or herself and/or aims to gain more consciousness and
become more aware of him- or herself and certain aspects of his or her life (like rela$onships, health,
work-life balance, etc.)!! Daniela 2019
