3. Raw Food Chef Certification & Detox Retreat, Bali 2018
Why Take This Retreat?
Yoga - The Art, Science and Spirit of Transformation
The One Yoga Teacher Training is a one-month immersion followed by an optional, but highly recommended, three-month personal deepening program suitable for those who aspire to become yoga teachers and/or for those who wish to deepen their understanding and practice of Yoga.
This unique teacher training enables a rich exploration into the art, science and spirit of transformation. We inquire both through traditional teachings and through self inquiry into the nature of spiritual awakening. Together we experience the alchemical effects of the potent integration of the following:
Daily dedicated personal practice (4 hrs daily : asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation, puja and chanting), yoga philosophy, spiritual inquiry, time in silence, mindfulness practices, sound healing, satsang, and community sharing, and nonduality teachings.
A JOURNEY OF TRANSFORMATION
Using principles of transformation, this course is designed to take you on a journey into the depths of your being to discover the freedom and happiness that is your essential nature. As the program progresses we progressively explore subtler levels consciousness and gain tools to work on these new found levels of being. If one is sincere, courageous, open and determined, this journey will trigger a transformation process; and in doing so, it will awaken dormant potentials. The last days we resurface to explore how to skillfully integrate these discoveries into our daily life and how to live a life of great purpose and contribution.
DISCOVER PRACTICES AND TOOLS FOR AWAKENING
Each week integrates four evening deepening courses that will provide students with practices and tools to awaken to new dimensions of being, and to awaken a greater sense of clarity, empowerment and therefore freedom on each level. The evening courses are as follows:
Week 1: Self Inquiry - Discovering The Path to Freedom
Week 2: Subtle Practices - Awakening to the Energetic Realms
Week 3: Mind-Body Practices - Union of The Sacred Masculine & Sacred Feminine
Week 4: Meditation - Exploring The Nature Of Consciousness
INTEGRATING THE INSIGHTS, TRANSFORMING YOUR LIFE
A unique and important component of the One Yoga Training is the Living Yoga Program - a three-month, online, guided assimilation process that follows the training once you return home.
The most common feedback from graduates of other teacher trainings is: 'I had this transformative experience in my immersion, but once i returned home, i felt alone, the insights were lost, and the depth of awareness disappeared". The reason is - for transformation to 'stick' - there are some other important ingredients that a one month immersive alone cannot provide. We have created The Living Yoga Program to provide these very critical ingredients for successful transformation, namely:
1 ) Repetition of the practices over a prolonged period of time.
2) Contemplation, assimilation and application the insights to our regular life (where the rubber hits the road);
2) Feeling supported by a community who share your views and values and most importantly;
3) Time - transformation takes time!
The 3 month guided Living Yoga Program - has been designed using the principles of transformation to support graduates in assimilating the powerful insights that arose during the immersion. We stay connected as a community through a dedicated facebook page and private youtube channel. The sincerity of your participation in the Living Yoga Program will be reflected in a transformed life. Your life purpose will clarify. Your relationships become more conscious and empowering. You connect with a mutually inspiring conscious community, your day-to-day lifestyle choices contribute to the health and empowerment of yourself and your world.
YOU ARE FULLY SUPPORTED
Set in an idyllic tropical environment, nourished by the highest quality food; you will feel fully supported whether your intention is to deepen your practice, take time for self-reflection and care, or to establish a solid foundation in teaching yoga. Our faculty of inspiring master teachers has been carefully selected for the vast reach and depth of knowledge they offer, the wisdom they embody, and the loving kindness they exude.
The intention of the training is to offer the fertile conditions of spiritual transformation, thereby, via your own direct experience you can naturally and authentically share the gifts of yoga with others.
Throughout the training faculty members will be available to talk to each day during your breaks to address any challenges inquiries and concerns that may be arising for you.
Therefore the intention is fourfold:
Over the last 20 years, Tanya has passionately explored the process of spiritual integration and transformation through the lenses of both traditional eastern and modern western systems. She sought the thread that connects, the deeper universal wisdom they all shared, to bring them together to support people on their spiritual journey. She has teased out the common essential guiding teachings for spiritual transformation and delivers them through the platform of yoga.
Tanya teaches a powerful fusion that brings together the strengths of many systems to offer a unique, informed and potent approach to the practice. Students will graduate as competent and confident instructors of Hatha Yoga empowered with a depth of knowledge, clear guidance and practical tools and to support their yoga journey onward; both as student and as a teacher.
NOTE: daily brunch is included, accommodations not included
Since 2009, our 200 Hr Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher training course has trained and certified thousands of yoga teachers under Yoga Alliance, the international standard. Our graduates learn to teach yoga classes safely and with confidence.Our yoga training supports students in deepening their understanding and relationship to the practice. We study the magic ingredients of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as taught by Pattabhi Jois (breath, bandhas and dristi).
With comprehensive methods to make the practice appropriate and accessible, our approach is modern, therapeutic, challenging, yet supportive while also steeped in tradition.
This yoga certification course is based on the sequence of the Ashtanga Primary Series and creative flow found in Vinyasa Yoga style of asana practice (eg. Rocket Yoga Vinyasa).
While the traditional Ashtanga Primary series lays a solid foundation for students, they will also learn and be inspired by various other yoga styles to help develop and sequence Vinyasa Yoga classes.
In these styles, the asana practice focuses on connecting the breath with movements while engaging bandhas (inner energy locks). By the end of the course, students will be able to confidently teach a modified Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class suitable for beginners as well as creating Vinyasa Flow sequences.
From day one, the yoga training will guide students through proper techniques including: key alignments, modifications, variations, contraindications, use of basic yoga props, the art of adjustment, and teaching methodology along with practice teaching.
As the foundation of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga is established, principles of sequencing will be taught so yoga students can create a Vinyasa Yoga class according to the needs of their future students. To balance the Yang practice of Ashtanga, we will also practice Yin Yoga to provide students with a broader education and enhance their overall experience with yoga.
In addition, we will share our strong expertise on the business of yoga, covering useful topics like marketing, pricing, teaching group and private classes, and setting up your own yoga school.

Routes of Yoga teacher trainings are holistic and comprehensive programs that cover all major aspects of yoga in practice and theory. Experiential understanding and embodiment are the key motivations that drive Routes of Yoga courses structure and our systematic approach. Explore your yoga practice with a skillful and nurturing teaching faculty.
Gain a thorough understanding into the process and science of yoga and cultivate a solid teaching methodology rooted in practice and awareness. In this intense 24-day program we will walk the fine line between ease and learning to move through challenges gracefully.
This program moves through 3 major areas of development necessary to share the practice of yoga with ample knowledge, confidence and compassion.
1) THE BODY
Building an informed and appropriate physical asana practice sets a solid foundation for the training program and here the main elements and qualities of a physical practice are explored. Lectures on Anatomy pave the way for Asana Workshops that focus in on asana groups, alignment principals and providing appropriate modifications and variations to suit individual scenarios. Concepts are applied in targeted yoga asana classes daily for integration and time is set aside for discussion and clarification on issues that arise during the day's explorations. The goal here is for the yoga practitioner to use the knowledge gained in the theoretical & hands-on workshops to build an inclusive and mindful approach to yoga asana that encourages its healing potential to surface within his or her own yoga practice as well as when teaching others.
2) BEYOND ASANAS & SUBTLE ANATOMY
These modules provide a deeper view point for one's own practice as well as a contemplative base from which to teach from. Topics cover the more subtle concepts and techniques of yoga, such as chakras, kriyas, mantras, yantras, pranayama and meditation. Yoga history and the analysis of key philosophical texts enable students to place these techniques within the bigger framework of yoga and understand their individual purposes towards its ultimate goal. This goal of this segment is to move away from mystification and towards useful integration. Through a grounded approach as well as providing regular routine practices, what is typically the more abstract realms of yoga is grounded down into an experiential understanding that highlights the practicality, validity and potency of these methods.
3) THE ART OF TEACHING
Teaching Methodology, Sequencing and Teaching Labs offer the tools and guided training sessions to lead multi-level classes with clarity and confidence. Ample time is allocated to Teaching Labs for students to gain hands-on experience in leading classes and get individual feedback and guidance from both their peers and the teaching faculty. The topics covered in the first two areas of development teach students the core principals of yoga and how to implement them into their daily lives. The goal here is for students to gain faith and confidence in their own practice and how it can positively impact their living and perception of the world. The Art of Teaching modules build onto this. While a comprehensive understanding of yoga and a regular practice are necessary pre-requisites for teaching, alone they do not ensure a clear and efficient transfer of information. The Art of Teaching subjects focus on developing these key attributes of a teacher along with nurturing each participant's individual teaching style and voice.

How does the ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy and spiritual inquiry translate tangibly into our practice of modern yoga asana?
As we unravel that which is repressed and stuck in our body mind, what are the practical tools to help us be with what arises and liberate us from suffering to Self-Realization?What is the path to awakening really all about?
In this 100-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training, we meet these inquiries directly, drawing from the combined wisdom of traditional Hatha Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoist Five Element Meridian Theory, and the Mindfulness Meditation practices of Tibetan Buddhism.
. Learn the specific therapeutic benefits of each yin asana & how to most effectively practice, sequence & teach classes for each of the organ systems.
This 2-week immersion offers a holistic map and practical pathway for potentialising freedom and liberation within ourselves, and in turn, assists the development of direct teaching tools to support and guide our students.
This 100hr module, is a complete & thorough study unto itself, or may be a contributing module to the TNYT 500hr RYT Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Programme.
