Durga Devi Yoga Teacher Training

Emphasizing the spiritual backdrop of yoga, Durga Devi Yoga Teacher Training never departs from a solid grounding in Yoga Asana (exercise), with attention to the effective sequencing of postures, both up and down the chakras, proper setup, alignment, refinement and coming out of poses. Students will practice in and out of class, observing, adjusting, and teaching, leading to the true confidence of a good teacher. Other effective Paths to Yoga, in addition to the classical Raj path, are introduced. Students will have an opportunity to participate in Karma Yoga, the path of Action and Selfless Service, and will emerge with a deep appreciation for Bhakti Yoga, the Path of Divine Devotion through vibrational sound. Additionally, the training will foster opportunities for personal transformation. The Sister Science of Yoga, Ayurveda, will be introduced, aligning the student's lifestyle with their Yoga practice. Often people take one step forward through yoga practice and two steps backward though unbalanced lifestyle. The aim of the Durga Devi Yoga Teaching Training is to transmit the ancient teachings as authentically as possible, offering a path of balance in stressful times.
