Sati Yoga Foundation Training

2 April 2021 - 11 April 2021


Sati Yoga Foundation Training / Teacher Training module 1

For experienced practitioners and yoga teachers

This is an intensive 9 day course which explores the principles of Sati Yoga from both experiential and theoretical perspectives. With it’s general theme: Embodiment through Practice, this unique training will deepen your understanding and practice of yoga that goes far beyond the physical postures. Through the integration of classical yoga and early Buddhist teachings from a non-dogmatic and secular perspective you will discover that your experience of asana, breath work, meditation will be challenged, extended and ultimately transformed. You will discover that mindfulness (sati) is not just a fashionable add-on but a unique capacity of awareness to be diligently cultivated. Through a creative mix of taught classes, group work, dharma talks and presentations, periods of silence and karma yoga, guided meditations, self-practice sessions, mindfulness practice in nature, the training serves to re-connect us to what matters.

It also introduces a unique approach to breathwork drawing from classical pranayama as well as from the Buddhist perspective exposed in the Anapanasati sutta (the Buddha’s discourse on mindfulness of breathing).

This course forms the first residential module for the 200hr Sati Yoga Teacher Training Programme.*

It can also be taken as a stand-alone intensive training, providing 60 CPD hrs, allowing students who are new to the Sati Yoga approach an opportunity to experience an intensive training before committing to either of the teacher training programmes.

If you haven’t studied with us before and have a 200 hr certification from another school,  (and if spaces are available) this Foundation Training can be an alternative to the seven day Sati yoga immersion course as the entry point to the 300 hr Sati Yoga Teacher Training Programme.
