_____________________________________________________________

It’s time! Lighthouse is excited to offer our first in-person 300hr Teacher Training since 2019! Learn to practice and teach our signature yoga class, JM Vinyasa, with clarity and precision. This training will be our most immersive and in-depth training to date, as we will live on-site together for 3 weeks at the beautiful retreat center, Danena Sicily, with Jared McCann and Rebecca Causey, who share over 34 years of teaching experience. Immerse yourself in yoga asana and sadhana practice and study each posture in-depth from the perspective of practitioner and teacher. Jared will also teach Yoga History and Philosophy and along with Rebecca, serve as coach + mentor during teaching practice sessions. Rebecca will teach Anatomy + Kineseology as applied to yoga asana. 


Our 300hr Advanced JM Vinyasa Teacher Training is designed to help students enhance and refine their teaching skills and personal yoga + meditation practice. Trainees will learn to effectively teach and safely practice more advanced poses and inversions, cultivate a daily Sadhana practice that includes mantra, kriya, pranayama and meditation, as well as take a deeper look into yoga history and philosophy, yoga anatomy and functional movement.

Students who complete all the elements of this training will be eligible to receive a 300hr certification from Yoga Alliance, or add it to a previous 200hr certification to meet the 500hr RYT requirement. Students who satisfactorily complete this program will also receive a 300hr certificate from Jared McCann and their contact information and teaching credentials will be added to our list of certified JMY teachers around the world.

Reviews

The accommodations and food and yoga were great. And big thanks to Marina for allowing me special kitchen privileges! However, a couple of things I reasonably want for $3000 a week: There is hot water for showers only during certain hours of the day. We weren't told this upon arrival, so after two attempts at a hot shower, I took one with cool/lukewarm water. Not good. Turn on the hot water. Also, this is the 21st century -- so in spite of Cocoon's virtue signaling "great opportunity" demurral/excuse in the small print ("Please keep in mind we are in the countryside, not NYC. This is a great opportunity to leave your phone in your room, and enjoy nature, a conversation, or a lovely book") -- there should be a working, stable internet connection in every room, not just in the main gathering space. As it was, you had to sit in the freezing foyer on an uncomfortable bench to do any reasonable internet business or work. Don't tell me I have to talk to someone or read a book in my free time. I'm a grown up. Zero stars for this. Cheers!

Above and beyond all expectations - though the weather was a little chilly (early April), the location (Cocoon Portugal) was idyllic and the food was incredible, the meditation, yoga practice, and pilates bootcamp - just WOW - the overall experience literally defined what a PERFECT RETREAT looked and felt like in real life. Jared, Rebecca, Alison, and Jason + Cocoon Portugal, Anton, Tony = these people held such a warm embrace and a holistic container for us to heal and to just be. Thank YOU so much!
