Truly Transform and Reconnect in Tranquil Nature
Join Sak Beh Yoga in the Mexican Caribbean jungle, for a 17-day immersion into the foundation of yoga teachings. You will learn the systematic practice of Yoga along with a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology from the yogic viewpoint and the systematic practice of breathing techniques (Pranayama), relaxation, and meditation.
Our focus is to create a calm and intimate learning environment, to inspire students to connect with themselves and nature. We break up the long training days at this multifaceted property with; meditation around the Cenote (waterhole), shaded yoga classes under the tall jungle trees, lectures in the open air palapa, breath-work practice in the natural tree circle, philosophy classes in the hammock hangout space, discussions over the bonfire, and enjoy self-study sessions in the plenty of tables and lounge areas hidden around the property among tropical plants.
This course also puts a focus on nutrition and meals, as we know that right nutrition is a key factor to endure long days of study with a healthy body and mind. All of the groceries are organic and all the fruit and vegetables are from local farms. The food is freshly prepared daily by our highly trained chefs, who will create exquisite and flavourful meals.
As a cultural experience and to honor the Mayan ancestry of this land, we will start the program with a welcome ceremony led by a traditional Shaman. Furthermore, we have included an optional Temazcal Ceremony to the program, which is an ancient Mayan tradition and a spiritual cleansing ritual still practiced today. It is a ceremony of purification and healing used to connect with the energies of nature and gives our students the opportunity to reconnect with the healing and spiritual energies of the Mayan.
The training will lead the participants from a basic understanding of Yoga postures to transition into advanced level postures and focusing on the practice and experience on the mat itself. The systematic practice and learning to modify with each practice session will lead to building a strong foundation in order to teach yoga safely in the future. There will be a detailed review of the postures, and a thorough breakdown of modifications, alignment, and opportunity to experience it while practicing on your own and teaching to your fellow participant during practicum modules for each and every participant. This comprehensive training will not only teach you the skills to be an effective teacher, but provide you with the tools to lead a purposeful life.
