The course is intensive advanced 300hr training and any other certification will be required.

Like our 200Hr training, this training will naturally be practice focused as well. We will analyze all the poses of Classical Hatha Yoga. We will break down, analyze, learn how to perform, adjust and teach those poses and make creative and well structured series with them.

The anatomy lessons will hug the asana classes, complementing them by focusing on the understanding of movement patterns, their practical application to our practice and how each pose affects the joints, bones and muscles. We will take a deeper look, not only at the muscles & their fascia, but also at the nervous system. We will gain more insight into how the mind is connected to our body, how we can invest in that relationship, take the reigns and go more deep inside us. This practice comes from more than 14 years studies on hatha yoga based on knowledge of Sri, Sri, Sri Yogi Silent of Madras.

Varanasi allows you to enter into spirituality and discover the true history and philosophy of India.

Kashi (Varanasi) is the city of Lord Shiva, it is said to be in the trishul  of Lord Shiva, so worshiped by Yogis. The one who controls this city is Kaal Bhairav, the fiercest representation of Lord Shiva. Kaal Bhairav ​​​​is also called the Kotwal (Sheriff) of Varanasi. He says no one can stay in Varanasi without his permission, so we will ask his permission to stay in Varanasi and study Yoga.

In Varanasi there are 64 Bhairavs with their respective temples. You will have time to visit some. And... if there's one thing that will take your breath away, it's the sunrise in Varanasi. The sun reflecting off the Ganges and illuminating the Ghats is a unique sight. Every day we will practice Yoga at dawn on the banks of the Ganges. We will have time to admire the sunrise and the awakening of the city between rituals, ablutions, prayers and mantras. We will see up close how this city salutes the sun and celebrates Maa Ganga every day. Finally, the large Manikarnika crematorium, which you will have the opportunity to visit, is no less fascinating.

If you want to say more days with us, when the training ends, we start the next day a travel experience around Varanasi. See the program for this trip here.
