YogaJaya International Intensive Teacher Training (Yoga Alliance 200hr)
All courses are conducted in English and Japanese with experienced interpreters for the duration of the course. Additionally the course manuals are translated into both languages.
YogaJaya understands that work commitments prevent people from immersing themselves in a consecutive daily training course. So we have designed a course to both intensify the experience and economize the time that students are immersed in the curriculum agenda per week.
The YogaJaya teacher training will take place from winter through autumn 2008. The teacher contact modules will be conducted on consecutive weekends and public holidays. Additional class attendance and assignments will be issued to comprise the additional credit hours.
What makes the YogaJaya TTs different from other Yoga teacher training programs is the emphasis on the transformation in each and every one of us toward attaining our complete potential in our lives outside the mere physical yoga practice.
The courses are designed to stimulate and revolutionalise an individual's perceptions of yoga practice and how it connects to every aspect of growth. The facilitators that have been chosen for these courses have decades of accumulated experience as yoga practitioners, teachers, therapists and artists.
YogaJaya and its vision have been recognized by some of the leading yoga organizations in the world, and continue to establish its open and diverse mission to clarify a profound but practical outlook on Yoga Lifestyle.
