Yoga Nanda – The Path to Self-Realization

March 2 - 4, 2018

This registration is for the food and lodging portion of Nanda’s Yoga teacher training (Training fees are paid separately to Yoga Nada prior to registration for rooms at Menla)

Yoga Nanda is a community where students explore and practice the ancient tools of transformation grounded in the 8-limbed path of yoga. Joining body, mind and spirit, we unite with our larger collective in compassion and service.

With a unique blend of diversified styles and seasoned instructors, Yoga Nanda offers both traditional teachings that are rooted in classical lineage as well as contemporary teachings that flow from personal experience.

Yoga Nanda’s 200-Hr “Path to Self Realization” Teacher Training will be a journey of discovery in which students draw from their inner passion to cultivate a personal clarity that can transform their life both on and off the mat. This comprehensive program is suited for both prospective instructors as well as any dedicated practitioners seeking to deepen their understanding of the physical and spiritual teachings of yoga.

We believe the key to being a great yoga teacher is the ability to pull from various schools of thought in order to adapt the practice to a wide variety of practitioners. In this alignment-based vinyasa training, you will create a personal tool box from which to engage and connect meaningfully with students through visual, auditory, tactile, and experiential learning.

Participants will complete this training with a sturdy foundation upon which to build a meaningful and life-long connection with yoga, wherever that path may lead.
