Would you like to change your life in a big way? Do you love yoga and want to really understand this ancient system? Do you want to teach this beautiful practice or deepen your own? Join master teacher Raghunath for the Supersoul Yoga accelerated 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification.
This program is designed especially for those who cannot take the time off work but who still want a comprehensive, all-encompassing yoga training. We will come together over 4 intensive weekends of study, practice, meditation and personal growth, with your personal practice and independent study tailored to your free time in between.
Starting in March of 2017 and continuing through June of 2017, for one weekend a month, you will live at Supersoul Farm as a resident student or commute locally, arriving Thursday night with classes starting Friday morning at 5:30am with meditation and yoga. There will also be one weekend of dedicated seva (selfless service) and study at Supersoul Farm during the course of the farm's calendar year. That, combined with homework, reading, and practicums between sessions will make up the required 200 hours for Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training credentials.
