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.
