The Gambia, West Africa – 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training.

9th-30th January 2024

12th November – 3rd December 2024

Join us on The Smiling Coast of West Africa for this one of a kind, fully immersive experience in Senegambia West Africa.

We are beyond excited about this one. With stunning sunsets, birds and monkeys in the trees and luxury accomodation just 30 metres from the beach, this Yoga Teacher Training course is filled with vibrance, culture and the hum of nature that we love so much to be amongst, at Middle Path Movement teacher training programs.

A 21 day intensive transformation program for anyone who is ready to deepen their spiritual practice on and off the mat, simultaneously certifying as a worldwide accredited yoga teacher.

This yoga alliance authenticated course is suitable for everyone, from the beginner, who wants to dive deep into this ancient art from the start, or to the advanced practitioner who is ready to get certified and start teaching their own yoga classes with an accredited, globally recognized body.

Upon completion of this course, not only will our students have joined a global tribe of people who have put in the loving intention to evolve and heal their own mind body and spirit, they will leave the course with a unique skill set that they can take and share with with the rest of the world, whether it is in their own intentional classroom, or in their home and work environments

What to expect on a Teacher Training Program with Middle Path Movement.

We will of course be diving deep into the physical aspects of yoga; body movement and alignment, breath work and correct classroom adjustment to ensure that our students are aware of their own postures and just as importantly, the postures of those around them.

We are passionate about the importance of honoring and understanding the roots of yoga and provide our students with deep studies into the history and philosophy of this ancient science. We create open spaces for discussion about views and personal experiences as we feel this is the most beneficial and effective to way to learn such an inclusive and vast topic.

We will learn to understand the mechanics of the body in a unique and dynamic classroom setting, analyzing the anatomy and physiology of the body and how it specifically connects to the movement of yoga with a highly qualified and experienced teacher.

We will be exploring depths of the world of meditation and mantra, learning skills and techniques for guided meditations and independent practices

As Yoga is an inclusive science, we feel it is important to understand multiple perspectives and ways of living. With this in mind, as we will be in The Gambia, we feel it is important to experience the vastness of The Land we will be walking on. Therefore, we will be offering the opportunity to join 2 extra curricular activities. The chance to experience a 4 Wheel Drive adventure to explore South West Gambian village life, local culture, beach and wildlife, to allow our students to honour the Land we will be sharing, and/or a trip to Senegal to encounter a Safari! These experiences are there if you feel called to join in and will be scheduled on days free from studies. (small extra charge per excursion to support local business).

All this and much much more to expect from this 3 week intensive program with Middle Path Movement!
