In this unique teacher training program, we aim high. We strive to become the fire starters of our quiet revolution, warriors of peace and the engaged citizens of this human tribe in order to be part of the solution, the light in this world.
FLYING ELEPHANT YOGA MANTRA
May you practice courage and kindness
May you always trust your feelings
May you be the light in dark places, when all other lights go out
Our teacher training is unique in that we believe in social change and leadership. Whether you are the CEO of your family or the tribe leader amongst your friends, we believe in stepping up and be the light in the world.
Our 200HR Yoga Teacher Training is an intensive immersion designed to go deeper into your practice, share yogic teachings and for those who would like to complete our 200hr Yoga Alliance certified teacher training program to become a registered teacher.
Our program is offered over 2 modules. If you already have a 200HR YTT certificate, you can take either module. If you do not have a 200HR YTT, you must complete Module 1 before taking Module 2.
We believe in understanding and familiarizing self on physical, mental, emotional and societal levels so that we can be of benefit to the world around us. We believe that the real practice is off the mat in our family, friends, schools, work, traffic jams and good conversations over coffee, in other words, the real life. This is where our yoga practice counts, this is where we start our inspired living.
“COME TO YOUR YOGA MAT TO FEEL; NOT TO ACCOMPLISH. SHIFT YOUR FOCUS AND YOUR HEART WILL GROW.” ~ RACHEL BRATHEN
That’s why our program is divided into two parts: First half is to learn how to become a student of yoga, then the next half is to learn how to step up to the plate of a yoga teacher, to become a leader. We re-examine first what it means to be a conscious human, what it means to embody this practice in a way our body, mind and spirit is expressed and aligned with wholehearted living. The latter half uses the first half of our experiences as inspirations to share our love for this ancient practice, so as to become the instigator of human revolution.
Our training is NOT for EVERYONE. We consider self-inquiry as our top priority, transformation, inevitable, quest for happier, more peaceful and fulfilled life as joy.
Our immersion will give you a deeper understanding of:
• Your own personal practice and yoga asana poses
• Vinyasa yoga sequencing that looks deeply at individual Doshas, chakras and other individualities of practitioners
• Yogic philosophy, history and the Yoga Sutras
• Pranayama, meditation and basic anatomy
• The art of assisting and teaching methods
• Introduction to Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra
• Basic knowledge of pre/post natal yoga
We are currently offering our trainings in 2 locations: our home base, Flying Elephant Yoga studio in Pulau Weh, Sumatra or Yoga Dunia Lembongan studio.
You must be at least 18 years of age and has a regular practice of at least 6 months. If you have had an “on-and-off” practice for a few years, it is not a problem. We’ve all been there. The most important thing is that you’ve had an experience of a steady practice. We believe that no one walks into a yoga teacher training program by accident. If you thought about it and you felt it in your heart, you should trust that feeling. If you are still not sure, ask us questions! It is the best way to find out for yourself whether you are ready or not.
