Keeping it real but ready to fly.
Are you passionate about yoga and ready to take your practice to the next level? Are you ready to take the next step to becoming a certified yoga teacher so that you can fulfill your dream by doing what you love for a living?
Join Asia Pacific Yoga on our 7 - 15 October 2019 200 Hour Hatha Vinyasa New Zealand Yoga Teacher Training in stunning beach town Piha, New Zealand. We create a very down to earth, neuro-physiological yoga teacher training with respect to the vast unknown that constantly draws us deeper and deeper into MAGIC.
This Yoga Alliance accredited and internationally recognised 200 Hour Hatha Vinyasa New Zealand Yoga Teacher Training is designed not only for aspiring teachers, but for those who are looking to immerse themselves in a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual transformation through yoga and meditation.
This training will include 19 days accommodation, course fees and manuals. Meals are not included as students will purchase their own vegetarian food and cook either separately or communally. We will cover all aspects required for Yoga Alliance Certification in a relaxed environment, a small group of no more than 9 people.
The first week will be an immersion into Hatha asanas, pranayama and kriyas. The second week is about experiencing Vinyasa Flows based around Surya Namaskar (Sun Salute) A and B. We will have restorative and yin classes in the afternoons during the training as well. All this will give you a broad base to teach from.
