8th-29th May 2022
Along Mexico’s Pacific Coast, backed by Sierra Madre’s Occidental Mountains, lies a little village, gifted with The Surfers Wave. Enchanted with diverse tropical wildlife and the laid-back hum of ocean calm, Sayulita invites a diverse population of salty-haired-sun-worshippers, art designers, yoga lovers and mountain climbers. Bursting with palm trees and a warm villagers lifestyle and Middle Path Movement have absolutely fallen in love.
That is why we have decided to run our first Teacher Training Course of 2022 exactly here.
A 21 day intensive transformation program for anyone who is ready to deepen their spiritual practice on and off the mat, simultaneously certifying as an 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 different perspectives and practices of spirituality. With this in mind, as we will be in Mexico, we feel it is important to understand and experience the traditions of the Land. Therefore, we will be offering the opportunity to experience traditional Mexican ceremonies to allow our students to honor the Spiritual practices of the space we will be sharing.
All this and much much more to expect from this 3 week intensive program with Middle Path Movement!
