FRANCE – Lakshmi Rising 200Hr Yoga Teacher Training
Experience yoga at its depth
Investing in yourself with a Yoga Teacher Training Certification program is a life enriching experience even if you have no intention of teaching. Our three week, 200 hour Yoga Alliance approved curriculum explores the fundamentals of teaching asana & pranayama, as well as techniques on how to develop creative and effective vinyasa sequences. It is the same Lakshmi Rising curriculum that we offer in Costa Rica. We delve into the philosophy of yoga, different styles of meditation, the art of ritual and creating sacred space, ayurveda, anatomy of the physical and energetic bodies, the business of yoga and more. Not only will you deepen your own practice and self awareness, you will come away from this experience with all of the tools necessary to begin teaching and sharing your passion.
