1 June 2022 - 4 July 2022

THE PRACTICE

The course is a 5 – week intensive, advanced 300hr training that will build on your pre-existing knowledge, so having already a 200hr certification will be required.

Following from our 200hr course, this training will naturally be practice focused as well. We will analyze all the poses of Ashtanga Primary Series, as well as more and new Vinyasa and Hatha Yoga postures. We will break down, analyze, learn how to perform, adjust and teach those poses and make creative and well structured flows with them.

The anatomy lessons will hug the asana classes, complimenting them by focusing on the understanding of movement patterns, their practical application to our practice and how each pose affects the joints, bones and muscles. We will take a deeper look, not only at the muscles & their fascia, but also on the nervous system. We will gain more insight into how the mind is connected to our body and how we can invest in that relationship and take the reigns.

 

THE SPIRIT

Our days will start with Pranayama, meditation and chanting, balancing us and setting the stage for the rest of the day. You will be introduced to new, more advanced breathing techniques and practice different kinds of meditation methods and mantra chanting.

The philosophy classes will take us through the epic Baghavagitta, where we will have in-depth, open-minded & constructive discussions in order to find ourselves there and see how we can apply the traditional yogic ethics & lifestyle to our modern lives.

In the afternoons, we will delve deeper into the practice of Yin, as well as being introduced to even more styles of yoga, like Tantra, restorative, pre-natal and others, as well as having regular theme-based workshops.

THE FAMILY

Four intensive, challenging and very rewarding weeks await you. During this training we will spend even more hours together, practicing, training and learning but also supporting and helping each other, through good and bad. 

During this training you will work closer and for more hours with your teachers, who will always be there to support and guide you through this journey. You will bond and connect on a deeper level with your fellow students as well. You will live, eat and sleep close to each other as well as having many many hours of mutual practice where you will be asked to group up and study or practice your final lessons together. 

On Sundays you will have your day-off where you can explore the majestic Bali and visit the temples, the jungle, the sea or the mountains, depending on your energy levels.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Practice every day in our special home deep in the rice fields overlooking the jungle, the YogaUnion Shala. 

Daily, mornings will begin with pranayama, meditation and mantra chanting, followed by Vinyasa and Ashtanga flow classes.

Early afternoons will be focused on deep learning of asanas with an emphasis on alignment, adjustments & teaching methodology. You will dive into the theoretical part, studying Yoga Philosophy or Anatomy (alternating days).

The afternoon lessons will be focused on restorative styles of yoga such as Yin, Hatha, Nidra, introducing you to different styles of yoga like Tantra and pre natal and specialized workshops.

Late afternoon lessons will seal the day, with practicing what we learn, work on our final lessons and studying together as we watch the sun setting behind the ricefields.

You will eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at Foodpath, where Antonis will create delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes made with almost exclusively local, organic products.

You will have 1 day off per week, usually Sundays where you get to relax or enjoy the surroundings or arrange excursions and small trips to explore Paleros and dive in the crystal waters of Lefkada.

 

LOCATION

Palairos is a seaside village close to Lefkada island, that allows you to come in close contact with a rustic and traditional way of life. Discover the beauty of a simple, rural and honest everyday living combined with the beach life vibes from living next to the sea, ones that can truly relieve us of the stress and tension of our daily city lives. Away from urban distraction, you will find traditional tavernas, freshly baked bread from family-owned bakeries and an abundance of fresh fruits on local trees that you can grab on your way to the simple but stunning Yoga Shala, located at a small cliff overlooking the Ionian sea.
