200 hr Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training

Yoga and Tea Sri Lanka

Jan 5th - 31st

April 26th - May 23rd

The 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Foundation's course is designed to deepen your personal practice and give you the tools to design and guide a safe and well rounded yoga class upon graduation. 

Practice, Practice, Practice will be the central theme for this month long training. By practicing Asanas, Pranayam, Meditation and by engaging in discussion, debate and discourses the aim is to go beyond the theoretical and to embody the multi dimensional yoga experience. After graduation student/teachers will be teaching from a personal experience rather than a memorized scripted. 

Our Philosophy is to provide an in-depth training rather than touching on a wide spectrum of topics and only scratching the surface. Quality over quantity is the ethos that fuels our training to ensure we  provide students the foundation to deepen your own practice and support integral and authentic teaching.

Yoga Asanas (hatha, vinyasa, therapeutic, restorative and alignment based approach will be explored)

Testimonials 

“Doing my Yoga teacher training with Jesse was one of the best decisions I've ever taken in my life. A perfect combination of yoga postures, teaching & philosophy without ever being intrusive concerning what to believe in but open and supportive. I fully trusted his competency at all times and would love others to go trough the experience with him, an experience that didn't stop at my  yoga-mat but changed my life.”  - SN

 

I often share how much I've enjoyed my yoga experience with you - each and every class. I tell people you are a true yogi - not that I know what a "yogi" is I suppose, but for me that is what you represent. You are as I remember funny, gentle and kind hearted, you made the yoga classes I attended great fun. However I learned so much and through your unique way of teaching made me want to go a little further - deeper both physically and emotionally. Thank you and I look forward to attending a class of your again someday. - CJ

My yoga intensive with Jesse was a time and a practice that heavily impacted my life in a wonderful way. His knowledge and skill set are both vast and he understands compassion while still pushing beyond the comfort zone. I will always be grateful for the experience! JW

I have participated in more than one yoga trainings and received multiple Thai massages, which is far less than enough from Jesse. His approach to sessions feel very sincere and honest. I always feel I leave having learned something new about myself. An experienced and knowledgeable yogi and inspiring human. Oh yes, making people laugh is another specialty of Jesse. What a sweet treat to know Jesse Barlow.  -LD
