Sati Yoga Foundation Training
13 August – 22 August
This Advanced Sati yoga intensive enables students to establish a solid foundation in asana, breathwork, meditation and mindfulness practice from which they can naturally and confidently develop their own practice and teaching.
This is the first residential module of the Satiyoga Teacher Training programmes and is only suitable for advanced practionners and yoga teachers.
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.
Limited number of scholarships are available, contact us.
This course includes a preliminary online module which introduces the four foundational principles of Sati Yoga: Ethics, Body, Breath & Mind and clarifies what to expect on the course. A number of reflections and homework exercises must be completed as preparation for this course.
