Of course, becoming a Yoga teacher takes practice, dedication and commitment. On our Moksha TTC we provide you with well structured training, teaching you all the skills you need in a supportive friendly environment dedicated to offering a professional course, lifelong learning and training.
The Moksha TTC is developed and taught by our team of teachers, all committed experts in their specialised areas of Yoga. Combining two decades of extensive teaching and people centred business practice, the Moksha teachers all have well established international careers, either teaching and/or managing their own Yoga schools – all with one united focus, to share the practice and philosophy of traditional Yoga.
Our mission, or our Dharma, is to teach with respect and integrity a Yoga which belongs to the living, present moment, whilst remaining rooted and secure in its traditional foundations and philosophy.
The 200 hours Moksha Hatha Yoga Teacher Training is organised and offered independently by the founders of the Yoga Sivananda Lisboa and the 108 Yoga Waves team. This new alliance brings together devoted teachers, enabling them to share their wealth of knowledge in this complete TTC experience.
Moksha 200 hours TTC is offered annually.
Moksha, 2022 Hatha Teacher Training Course (TTC) will be taught at a coastal retreat centre situated on the Atlantic, in Ericeira, home to Portugal’s noted world surf reserve.The course structure has been created to suit small study groups, in order to encourage and nurture each student’s potential. It will be taught by accredited Hatha Yoga teachers and the training provided will be based upon the traditional Hatha Yoga methods and philosophy.
The course aims to train inspiring qualified Yoga teachers by providing a solid foundation to each student, encouraging confidence with a broad holistic view, along with the understanding required to teach both asanas and meditation practice.Therefore, a deep understanding of the body, its biomechanics and its bioenergy flow are considered a priority within our approach. For this reason the course will be in-depth and at times challenging, extending far beyond the teaching of the physical Asanas (postures) alone.
The course is aimed at those aspiring to become fully qualified Hatha Yoga Teachers.
It is, however, open to dedicated Yoga or Meditation Practitioners who wish to broaden and develop their own personal practice. The course will be uniquely personal to each individual student.
Together we will engage in the coursework, as a group and on a more individual level when required.
Over the 4 week TTC, you will establish a solid foundation of disciplines, promoting both physical and mental flexibility, whilst developing emotional awareness and spiritual growth.
This course will provide a strong base upon which to develop and strengthen your skills and professional teaching practice, allowing your confidence and knowledge to expand and grow in a positive and constructive manner.
The modules you will study and learn from will become your tools to teach traditional Yoga techniques which are proven to promote; Peace of Heart, Inner Harmony, and a healthier lifestyle, plus as an added bonus, we hope to support you in becoming a beacon of positive change in the world.
Throughout the course our experienced team will be here to help. All are welcome. Please feel free to contact us if you have any queries or questions.
