With Marcela Mota & Christian Coelho
International Yoga Teachers
Our 50hr Continuing Education Program gives graduate yoga teachers an opportunity to continue their study, deepen their practice and learn more teaching skills to be of best service in their communities.
During this week, students will be guided through a perfect blend between Yin Yoga and Yang practices – based on Ashtanga/Rocket Vinyasa & Forrest Yoga.
The Yin Yoga will be supported by the 5 elements of Chinese medicine and Yang practices will bring in the wisdom from the Native American traditions and ceremony.
Each day students will be encouraged to reinvigorate their yoga practice, re-inspire their teaching and remind themselves of why they fell in love with the practice in the first place.
Join this training to nourish yourself in communion with nature and to come home to the sanctuary that is your yoga mat!
Upon successful completion, you’ll receive a 50hr Yoga Alliance accredited teaching certification. You must complete the mandatory contact hours and achieve a satisfactory result in the final practicum to be certified. We are accredited by Yoga Alliance US.
To prepare for the training we highly recommend taking regular yoga classes in both Yin and Yang style of practices (including Ashtanga, Rocket Vinyasa & Forrest Yoga). The training is demanding and priming your body prior to arrival would enhance your experience tremendously.
Once enrolled you’ll receive a reading list which will further prepare you for our journey!
