200 HR Yoga Teacher Training
Alee Link, RYT500
July 14th-28th, 2019
Get ready to experience a complete mind, body, and spirit awakening in the sacred setting of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia! Alee Link, E-RYT 500, will thoughtfully guide students through a journey of deep self-exploration, integrating the sacred traditions of yoga practice, while immersing ourselves fully in the elements of our natural world.
Alee believes we cannot teach what we do not know, therefore this immersion-style yoga teacher training will ignite an internal flame within us to help you understand the practice, tradition, and sacred elements of this Earth. Until we fully FEEL the integration for ourselves, we cannot begin share it with others.
Through the training, deep study, thorough exploration, and loads of practice, each student will understand the craft of teaching yoga. Expect to learn:
The Sacred Tradition
The 5 Yoga Bodies (Koshas)
The 8 Limbed Path
Power of Alignment & Anatomy
The Gift of Breath
How to BE in Meditation
The Craft of Sequencing
Students will learn the depths of above subjects, how to LIVE a yogic life, and how to bring it all together to teach and share with others! This training will fully prepare students to TEACH, even if your path is merely to teach yourself… You will leave feeling alive, awake, and courageous!
This is a complete immersion into the practice and our natural surroundings. We will be living together, practicing the essence of yoga (union) at the Elohee Retreat Center, which is “a home, rooted in nature, for deepening human awareness, facilitating the healing of mind and body, and transforming individuals and society.” What a perfect space to surrender into the flow of our lives in order to be of service to others. The mountains, the elements, and the power of community will come together beautifully to provide a space for learning, exploration, connectivity, and healing. Students will walk away from this Teacher Training with the confidence to teach, a deeper understanding of the practice, a stronger relationship with themselves, and an awakened soul. So, y’all, be prepared to reawaken to the divinity of this life and then go out and share it with the world for the greater good of all!
This journey is FULL. Expect the schedule to be sunrise-sunset, which means not only should the body be healthy and able, but your mind as well. I ask that you have willingness to participate, share, and listen. And of course when spending 2 weeks with a group of people from different backgrounds, different ages, stories, and personalities: a sense of humor!
18 and older
Have practiced yoga in designated studio for 6 months minimum prior to training start date.
