Lokah Sangha Yoga 200hr Holistic Yoga Teacher Training
Immerse yourself in the studies of Traditional Hatha Yoga, nestled away at a private, lakefront retreat in the Northwestern Ontario Boreal forest. Whether you have a passion to lead and inspire, or a deep desire for self-transformation, this holistic training will provide you with a clear and comprehensive foundation of understanding and using Yoga in all aspects of your life.
Yoga, from ‘doing’ to living is one of the central tenets of the Lokah Sangha Yoga model. The LSY teaching method provides a clear understanding into the holistic tradition of the Yoga process and is delivered with reverence to how it’s been traditionally taught in India that has been passed down through our school’s lineage.
We believe everyone has the capacity to lead and inspire, and this course will help you unlock your potential to share your gifts in the world with passion and joy. As you learn to competently guide others in Yoga, you will ultimately learn so much about yourself in the process. An effective teacher is one who intuitively taps into their own wisdom and shares with authenticity. Our methodology encourages students to find their own unique teaching style, to be rooted in clarity, and with a strong foundation of understanding Yoga in its entirety and not just in parts. Our students will use this knowledge to deepen their own self-study and go out into the world teaching Yoga from a greater sense of self-agency.
The Lokah Sangha Yoga teacher training method is unique as we focus on a 3 part-developmental process:
1. Preparing for the Experience: Our course is robust deep-dive into understanding Yogic philosophies and terminology, Sanskrit and Latin terms, anatomy, physiology and so much more. Sometimes this can feel overwhelming, so these sessions are geared towards giving us more time to digest and understand these teachings with clarity and ease.
4 online sessions: Tuesday July 11th, Thursday July 13th, Tuesday July 18th, Thursday July 29th from 6-9pm CT Live Zoom Sessions
1 Online weekend session: Saturday July 29th-30th 9am-4pm CT Live Zoom sessions
2. The Immersive Retreat: An incredibly important part of inquiring into the nature of the Self, is the ability to step out of our day-to-day routines and fully dedicate time for self-exploration, reflection and meditative contemplation. Here we will experience full days of practising and learning how to teach Yoga, studying, participating in evening satsang and making friends for life.
August 13th-27th, a 14 day live-in immersive retreat accommodations & meals (vegetarian) included
Yes you can still call your family, use technology etc, but we do encourage ‘disconnecting to connect’ as reasonably as much as possible
Graduation Day Aug 27th- we invite your loved ones to come witness your certificate ceremony!
3. Integration sessions: We feel a 200hr YTT is just the beginning, and know that when we go back into our normal lives that it’s easy to lose focus and momentum. We will continue to support you over the following few months (and beyond) with monthly group check-ins and other pre-planned events, including an online session with my dear teacher, Shri Prasad Rangnekar. All future LSY courses which provide Continuing Education Credits to Yoga teachers will be offered at a discounted rate (10% off) for all LSY YTT Graduates.
