BACK TO BASICS

Rediscover Your Authentic Self

Through the study of the ancient Vedic texts and an understanding and practice of ancestral yoga -  Jnana Yoga or the yoga of study, Karma Yoga or the yoga of selfles service, Raja Yoga or the yoga of meditation, and Bhakti  Yoga or the yoga of devotion - we come to realize different truths about the world around us and about our essence nature. 

Although learning to teach asana classes is an important part of being a yoga teacher, we strive and hope for you to make a shift in consciousness, perhaps re-assessing old habits or value systems, and live your daily life with more equanimity.

INTIMACY

Tantra Yoga

Tantra yoga originates from a worship of the Hindu deities that represent the dynamic and static principles of the universe: Shakti (dynamic, creative, feminine) and Shiva (static, destructive, masculine). In Tantra yoga, practitioners seek to comprehend the continual play between these principles and study the universe through the human microcosm, focusing on the purification and cultivation of prana to awaken the cosmic energy that is present in the human body and allowing it to ascend through the chakras to resolve duality into unity.

The Tantra yoga component of this training weaves together many practices including Karma, Bhakti, Raja, mantras, chakras and bandha energy locks to develop your bodies’ subtle energies, working to bring the spiritual and material worlds into one. Through the exploration of these energies, your life’s purpose and connection with others can be understood in a new dimension.

Not predominantly sexual but definitely orgasmic, Tantra yoga is about intimacy, which can either mean with a partner physically or by yourself with your own breath, thoughts, and aspirations. Whether practiced alone to get in touch with your own subtle body energies or with a partner to deepen your relationship, Tantra yoga will help you get in tune with your authentic self and break down barriers in a unique and meaningful way.

STATIC HOLDS

Hatha Yoga

The Sanskrit word ‘Hatha’ means force and alludes to a system of physical techniques comprised of asanas, pranayama, kriyas, mudras, and meditation. As such, Hatha yoga is actually an umbrella term for most types of yoga teaching physical postures, meaning nearly every yoga style is Hatha yoga. With ‘Ha’ meaning the sun and ‘tha’ the moon, this practice aims to balance these two energies to prepare the body for deeper spiritual practices like meditation. As ancient asanas were not merely postures but instead mudras, they were intended to seal and channel prana within the body.

Hatha yoga asana practice is relatively gentle, slow, and characterized by longer static posture holds than most other styles. In spite of this however, practice can still be physically and mentally challenging. Classes will typically start with a gentle warm-up and then progress to more physically challenging postures.

FLUIDITY

Vinyasa Yoga

The Sanskrit word ‘Vinyasa’ translates as “to place in a special way”, and Vinyasa Yog is thus characterized by fluidly stringing asana postures together, with each movement synchronized with the breath. The style is vigorous and movement-intensive based on a continuous flow from one asana to the next, and offers a wide variety of postures which means that, unlike the rigidity of Ashtanga yoga sequences, no two Vinyasa classes are ever alike. Faster-paced than Hatha yoga, Vinyasa yoga classes involve progressively increasing body heat -and sweat- and building strength. It teaches us to cultivate an awareness that links each action to the next, both on the mat and in our lives.

During this training, you will learn Vinyasa yoga methods to assess the needs of individual students or groups, and then build a complementary, step by step practice to meet those needs. In addition to the postures you will learn during Hatha yoga classes (many of which transpose into Vinyasa), you will practice Ashtanga sun salutations A & B, plank pose, four-limbed staff pose, cat-cow stretches, side plank, cobra, grasshopper, as well as many other and more advanced asanas such as arm balances, headstands, inversions, and handstands techniques.

CONSCIOUS SLEEP

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a deceptively simple form of meditation and mind-body therapy through which the practitioner rests in savasana (corpse pose) guided through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self) to reach a deep state of relaxation between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, while maintaining consciousness. As the face relaxes and the jaw softens, you are guided through several stages. You first set an intention for the practice, then focus your awareness on breath, bodily sensations, emotions, and thoughts, consciously aware, observing, witnessing.

A proven antidote to anxiety, Yoga Nidra produces a sense of joy and well-being, better sleep, and has the potential to heal psychological wounds. It has been used to treat veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, substance abuse patients, and people suffering from stress.

During the practice we aim to restore our body, senses, and mind to their natural function to feel wholeness and tranquility and to become increasingly and systematically aware of our inner world. Practiced regularly, the elements of yoga nidra make up a sophisticated set of tools that can help practitioners navigate some of life's more challenging moments.

VIBRATIONAL HEALING

Sound Baths

We live in a vibratory universe where everything we sense, feel, see and touch is pure energy, or particles of energy vibrating. As such, the basic principle of sound healing is this concept of resonance of vibratory frequencies of objects, which includes human beings. If we are not resonating with some part of ourselves or our surroundings, we become dissonant and without harmony, which can create illness.

Although healing with sound is believed to date back to ancient Greece, recent research has linked music to a number of health benefits, from boosting immune function and lowering stress levels to improving your body’s functions such as blood pressure, and even breathing. Sound is measured in terms of Frequency of Hertz (Hz), and sound therapy is the application of healing frequencies to the physical and subtle energy fields around the body.

During this training, you will take part in sound therapy/healing sessions, witnessing a variety of Indian, Tibetan, and Andean instruments and tools such as tuning forks, singing bowls, ocean drums, rain and thunder-making instruments, koshi bells, hangdrums, native double octave flutes, chanting, and more.

DETOXIFICATION

Ayurvedic Self-Care

Dinacharya is the Ayurvedic practice of having a daily self-care routine, Dina meaning day, sun, or flow, and Charya meaning practice or conduct. Dinacharya rituals were established to maintain the body in harmony with the natural cycles and rhythms of the day, and emphasize the mornings as your most sacred time, as these hours create the foundation for the rest of your day.

Waking up before the sunrise, conducting a body and mind scan, daily intention setting, brushing your teeth, scraping your tongue, oil pulling, neti, nasya, eye washing, body scrubbing or dry brushing, oleation (Abhanga), bathing, meditating, foot massaging, and scalp oils, are all parts of an Ayurvedic self-care routine for that radiant glow inside and out.

Taking the time to nurture yourself each day really is a meditation on self-love which promotes self-respect. Bring your Ayurvedic self-care routine beyond  physical radiance and turn it into a sacred ritual for cultivating true beauty: radiant self-love.

PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

One-on-One Mentorship Integration Sessions

Because feedback is essential for growth, as part of your professional development you will receive each week a private mentorship session with an instructor, which will serve both as an opportunity for you to ask questions regarding the training or the avenues available to you as a Yoga Teacher, while the instructor will compassionately share feedback from his or her observations thus far.

The idea is to assist you in your transformational growth as you progress through the training, and that by means of constructive conversation you are assigned clear action items for growth.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Your Questions Answered

If there is anything else you'd like to know, please ask us a question here

How proficient in yoga should I be to attend?

We recommend that you have practiced any yoga style for three to six months either in studio classes or equivalent self-practice, have a sports or fitness training, or are accustomed to physical exercise in another discipline. You do not need to know any inversions, arm balances or advanced postures. We are looking for emotionally mature, dedicated practitioners who are committed to learning with an open mind.


What should I expect of this training?

You will be immersed in the studies of detox cleansing practices, pranayama, meditation, yoga asana, philosophy, anatomy, teaching methodology and more, while deepening your personal practice. The training will be physically, emotionally, and spiritually demanding, bringing challenges but also transformation. We ask that you join with an open mind and open heart. With the asynchronous format of this training, you can always take a day or more off to rest. The training is 21 days in length, however you can take as long as you need to complete it. 


How does the virtual format work? 

We are hosting the course in a Learning Management Software (LMS) on this website, which contains a library of books, manuals, the training itself, groups, a forum for discussions, questions, assignments, quizzes, etc. Each day is broken down by hour and you will move through each lesson sequentially. Many classes contain short quizzes at the end for you to synthesize the learning objectives. The instructors also post questions in the forum for you to respond to. We've assigned some days with morning digital detox where you will start practice in your bed and stay 'offline' until the first live class of the morning, as well as karma yoga volunteering exercises where you can serve selflessly someone in your home, your community, or on the internet.


What if I'm not in the same time zone as Peru (America/Lima)?

Not a problem! With the asynchronous format, you can adjust your schedule in your time zone to  complete the classes when it suits you best.


What if I am uncomfortable trying neti threat (sutra neti) ?

Sutra neti is an amazing cleansing that opens up the nasal passages and makes breathing very smooth for the day. If there is any practice (shatkarma, pranayama, asana or anything at all) that you may feel uncomfortable with, you certainly won't be forced to do it, and you will not be penalized in any way for not practicing it. We suggest you to try everything, but if you have a strong aversion toward something it's your choice to try it or not 🙂 

Most students need a few days and attempts to complete sutra neti and introduce it to their practice, and it's quite normal to feel some discomfort with the practice initially. 

What kind of certification will I get?

You will get a 200-hour certification from Moksha Yoga Amazónica, a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School (RYS). After graduation, you will use your certificate to register with Yoga Alliance. This is the standard procedure to become a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200).


Is Yoga Alliance accepting virtual yoga teacher trainings?

Yes, because of Covid-19, the Yoga Alliance has made a temporary exemption to allow its schools to offer contact hours in any category via a virtual format for the remainder of 2020. This means you are able to participate in our virtual yoga teacher training and upon completion apply to the Yoga Alliance to become a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200).
