Yoga Teacher Training and Retreats at The Sanctuary Thailand

Yogagati 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training 

20th April – 11th May 2017

Yogagati – a state of union and of being united together; a fusion of balance, simplicity, momentum and motion. Yogagati is more than a name; it’s a philosophy for life.

During the Yogagati 200 hour teacher training program, we will guide you on a journey of transformation from student to teacher.

We don’t believe in just teaching you the basics needed to obtain your certification. We believe in inspiring you to unite body, mind and spirit to discover the limitless possibilities held within you.

The Yogagati program is designed to empower participants from day one. During the three-week intensive course, we guide students through the methodologies, techniques and principles essential to effective yoga instruction.

Alongside the practical element of the course, lessons will include a focus on the principles of sequencing, demonstration, alignment, adjustments and modifications; anatomy and physiology; an exploration of yoga philosophy and in-depth consideration of the business of yoga and what it takes to make a career out of teaching yoga.

Practical lessons are delivered in our Yogagati flow. The foundation of which derives from and combines traditional forms of Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin Yoga. Yogagati flow is safe but challenging – physically, emotionally and spiritually – creating room for your own personal growth.

At the Yogagati School, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead we create a respectful, stimulating and relaxed learning environment that ensures every individual is heard and supported. Furthermore, our course is taught over three weeks, ideal for those with limited time who want to obtain Yoga Alliance accredited certification.

Classes are limited to 15 participants to ensure students receive the level of attention they deserve.

While we focus primarily on providing yoga teacher training programs, we also offer the opportunity for additional certification in Reiki, a spiritually empowering course that will nurture your inner healing abilities. Please indicate your interest during registration and we can incorporate the Reiki course into your program.

We offer 2 pricing options based on your preferred accommodation:

$2900 USD (includes shared accommodation, tuition fees, Yoga Alliance Certificate and two meals per day)

$3400 USD (includes private accommodation, tuition fees, Yoga Alliance Certificate and two meals per day)

Our Yoga Teacher Training is a holistic program; to understand Yoga you must first understand Self… body, mind, and spirit. The Chakana, or Andean Cross, acts as the guide and foundational structure for the course. The Chakana encompasses a lower world, middle world, and upper world and within each world we will focus on different types of movement, diet, and meditation. We bring to life the ancient teachings of Yoga through accessible spiritual lessons, a solid foundation in Yogic philosophy, and a daily Yoga practice, called The Kula Flow.

Anahata Yoga 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Peter Clifford

7th November – 1st December 2017

Anahata Yoga

Anahata Yoga offers a unique, powerful and graceful style of hatha yoga asana, known as the Dance of Shiva and Shakti.

This form of yoga asana is a meditative flowing vinyasa asana practice, designed to open the energy channels in the body and invite the energy of Shakti, residing in the base of the body in Muladhara Chakra, to rise through Sushumna and merge with Shiva, residing in Sahasrara Chakra in the crown of the head. We aim to rediscover the realm of pure potential of the inner self and its spiritual essence.

People are an amazing network of cellular intelligence, energy, thought, emotions, electric currents, organ actions, hormones, nervous systems, tissues, blood and lymph flows. All these elements are interwoven, inter-reactive and capable of transformation through this yoga practice. We focus particularly on the internal aspects of yoga: organ cleansing, tissue pumps, nervous systems, circulation of lymph and blood, releasing psychic knots known as granthis from Sushumna Nadi and pranic blockages from the Nadis, and creating hydraulic and pneumatic pressures within the body to create change. All movements are undertaken with inner conscious awareness, promoting a state of integration of the mind and body.

Anahata chakra is the fourth primary chakra located at the heart centre. It represents love, compassion, charity and balance. By opening the heart chakra we are able to act in accordance with our higher selves, following our hearts, from a place of love, compassion, integrity and openness.

The Anahata chakra is the seat of divine love and it is here that emotion is re-channelled into devotion. Vishnu granthi, the second psychic knot along shushumna, representing the bondage of emotional attachment, is located here and when this knot is released one becomes free of all selfishness and egoistic emotional attachment and thereby attains mental and emotional peace and equilibrium.

He has had the honour of studying with many wise and knowledgeable teachers in India including Swami Shankara, Swami Sarasvati, TKV Desikachar, AG Mohan, BKS Iyengar and Rishi Nityabhodananda. Combining his study of Anahata Yoga with a lifelong interest in learning about bio-mechanics, postural integration, anatomy and physiology, Peter has developed the unique, powerful and comprehensive Anahata Yoga philosophy, which manifests in asana as the Dance of Shiva and Shakti.

Peter’s teaching style reflects his experience as a household yogi and his training in Assam, India. He embodies the qualities of grace, humour, compassion and non-judgement, and provides his students with the tools to apply the philosophy of yoga to all aspects of daily life. His classes are joyous, opening and transformational. He has proven in his own personal practice that human ageing is reversible and scientific research shows that we can literally reverse the ageing markers, for example muscle strength, bone density, blood pressure and cholesterol levels etc.
