Read More about Yoga Teacher Training
Our Hatha Yoga teachers are very much aware of each individual in a class. You will be helping each yoga student towards a deeper understanding of themselves, body, mind and spirit. From this your students learn to develop their own intuition and how to use it in everyday life. This naturally promotes their own health, vitality, creativity and happiness. It also helps students to love and respect their own body/being/individuality and potential for growth.
Hatha Yoga Teacher Training at the SevaLight Retreat Centre is both a way to develop and deepen your own Yoga practice and experience while learning to teach others. Consequently, yoga teachers find the training a deeply rewarding, enjoyable and healing experience.
Because of the nature of this Yoga teacher training it is necessary for students to have an established Meditation or Meditative Peace practise, so that you can go to depth in your understanding of your own and others’ needs.
