We suggest approximately 1 year of Vinyasa Yoga experience before attending the training. However, if you have experience in another type of Yoga and are able to practice Vinyasa before the training starts that is ok too! We encourage students regardless of their physical ability or proficiency in the poses to attend. Yoga is a journey and not destination.

Yoga Alliance is an American non-profit organization that “exists to confer credibility on qualified yoga teachers and schools so the public can have confidence in the quality of yoga instruction they receive”. Due to the popularity and growth of yoga in the United States and worldwide, the need for competent teachers and safe classes is apparent. Yoga Alliance sets standards, maintains a registry of yoga teachers whose training and experience meet these minimum standards, along with a registry of Yoga schools whose curriculum meet their minimum standards.

Yes, this training is pretty intensive. Spending 28 days on yourself is definitely life changing. Please read Meagan’s blog to read about her experience from a student’s point of view about how it changed her life. During our last training there were a couple of ladies closer to 40 who commented to a young girl of 23 who had finished the training with them, that she was so lucky to do this training at such a young age as they felt it enriched their lives so much. So, as you can see it is intense and perfect for any age!

Daily 1-hour meditations will be also practiced in the first 4 weeks to help you sit for longer periods. If you need extra support during the silent retreat, there will be the opportunity to write down any concerns and questions which is arising for you and one of the lead teachers will address it during the dharma talks that will take place every day.
