Eighteen days, Two (2) 9-day Segments – March 1-9 and/or March 10-18, Each 1oo Hours of Yoga Teacher Training

FULL SCHEDULE:  YogaIlluminedSPIMarch1-18

Sumukhi (Kristina Lanuza) and Zoe Mantarakis guide you into a deeper understanding of Yoga and its practices for enlightening and freeing the mind and the heart through their Yoga Illumined 200-Hour Teacher Training and Yoga Lifestyle program. You learn the 8-limb system (Ashtanga) as taught by Patanjali – which includes guidelines for strengthening the spiritual, mental, psychic, pranic and physical body through Asana, Pranayama and Meditation.  Yoga Illumined provides you tools for embodying the most expanded state of enlightenment (Samadhi). You also learn how Yoga can enhance every aspect of your life, as well as how to speak from your true Voice in all situations and as a Yoga Teacher.

The Yoga Illumined South Padre Island Teacher Training schedule includes Hatha Yoga, Anatomy, Alignment and how to sequence Vinyasa, Restorative and Yoga Meditation classes.

You will also learn the Yoga Sutras directly in Sanskrit, the original language of Yoga as well as Nada Yoga – the Yoga of Sound.

Because this is an 18-day intensive on a beautiful coral reef and island  – South Padre Island – we will share Yogic dinners and lunches (see schedule for details YogaIlluminedSPIMarch1-18).  You also have the option to take Yoga & Surf or Paddleboard lessons with LaVida Williams and Terra Volz (pictured below) to see how Yoga integrates with the rhythms of nature and the Ocean.

NOTE:  Most classes will be held at Laguna Madre Yoga – 5009 Padre Blvd, South Padre Island, TX 78597 but there are class times on the beach and other South Padre Island locales.  Dinners and lunches will be held at local eateries or via potluck at a local home.
