What is the Naam Yoga Teacher Training like?
The spiritual alchemy of combining the practice of yoga and vibrating the Naam (chanting prayer) with the practical application of Universal Kabbalah, provides a seamless experience of life that allows you to master your destiny.
The Naam Yoga Therapies teacher training team teaches this course. In addition to the classroom time, this training utilizes time the time between weekends and participants' own accelerated evolutionary process to impart the deep meaning and experience of Naam. Extended time for study and continued mantric practice also help people as they go through their transformational process steadily and with the guidance and support of their peers and teachers.
Naam Yoga® teaches us to use the divine Word in prayer, which will awaken the spirit, revealing the true essence of self, purifying the body and mind. Universal Kabbalah teaches us how to work with the laws of Nature, through which the unknown becomes known, the unseen becomes seen, and the unheard becomes heard. This sacred technology provides the integrated tools for radiant health, well-being and ultimately divine consciousness, to help you move from the head to the heart center and face challenges with Grace.
Immerse yourself in this unique 200-hour Teacher Training program of yoga, mudras, mantras, breathwork, self-healing techniques and Universal Kabbalah. This Extensive training program also includes instruction and certification in Shakti Naam® Level I, the "Yoga of Immortality" and the latest facet of Naam Yoga Therapies that creates vitality and balance in life through stretching and breathwork.
