During this yoga and meditation teacher training, you will deepen your yogic and meditative practice and embark on a journey of self-discovery. You will acquire the foundations for the practice and teaching of yoga, including asana, pranayama, Yoga nidra, meditation, meditative arts, philosophy, and mantra chanting. The training offers you the opportunity to breathe in the essence of tantric non-dualism from Kashmir, a perspective that views reality through the lens of discipline and joy, leading to a more natural life in tune with your instinctive wisdom.

This teacher training will equip you to lead yoga sessions using the methodology of our school, integrating various yogic and meditative traditions. Our teaching methodology has been refined over many years of research, practice, and exploration of different parts and schools worldwide. It integrates Yoga Iyengar, Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Krama, traditional Tantra, and Tibetan Buddhism.

The training will also feature contributions from experienced teachers affiliated with the school, including Natalia Castillo (Assistant Teacher and Instructor in Santander), Martha Tena – Jap Inder (6 hours in Yoga and Meditative Dances), and Marisa Herrera, who will assist in the Madrid sessions.

General Information

Yoga Teacher Training accredited by the Yoga Alliance.

The training is divided into 8 modules: philosophy, asana, pranayama, physical and energetic anatomy, principles of Ayurveda, teaching methodology, traditional Tantra, and meditative arts (mantra chanting, tandava, sound vibration, types of meditation). Throughout the training, we will delve into aspects of Tibetan Buddhism such as compassion, forgiveness, impermanence, and unconditional love.

One cannot teach something that has not been practiced and/or experienced for its benefits. Therefore, you will learn experientially, theoretically, and practically to understand the benefits and psychology of this form of teaching and practicing.

To successfully complete this training, a theoretical and practical exam will be required, demonstrating the acquired knowledge and delivering a 90-minute class.

Additionally, a research project on a yoga-related topic of your choice is required. By attending the weekend format, you will have access to recorded online Iyengar Yoga classes offered by our school, allowing you to continue your practice between weekend sessions
