Yoga Dharma residential yoga teacher training courses at our Veliko Tarnovo centre in Bulgaria are a comprehensive immersion into yoga teacher training. The courses meet the requirements for the 200/300/500-hour Yoga Alliance International yoga teacher training qualification.

Courses for 2019:

We begin early with traditional kriyas and cleansing practices, followed with a full two hours of personal practice. There will be three teachers on hand for personal advice and adjustments. After a break for breakfast, the rest the day continues with teaching techniques, philosophy, anatomy and adjustment techniques. We spend time discussing the Yoga Sutras, the Yoga Yajnavalkya, The HYP, the Gita and others. We will explore our limits with Pranayama and meditation to expand our awareness.

We blend the exploration of yoga philosophy with our physical practice and the intensity of our early morning Kriyas into an experience which will change us forever.

Every moment of our stay will be our practice. Meal times will be an opportunity to discuss philosophy. We will start and finish the day with silent contemplation. We will weave our expanded understanding of asana with our journey through the yoga sutras into a complete and holistic experience.

This is a journey for those who wish to delve deeply into their practice, and who are not afraid to go wherever it takes them!!
