About the Training
The 200 hour Holistic Mama YTT course is designed for nurturing women who want to bring the holistic practices of Yoga and Ayurveda into daily life, for optimal wellness for the whole family. This course is particularly geared toward moms who have certain responsibilities that don't allow much time away, and if you love being outdoors and experiencing new places, that's a bonus!
The primary focus of this course is to allow organic integration of the practices to seep into daily life. My hope is that moms will take what they are learning and apply it to their family life; teaching by example, and raising consciousness one breath at a time.
In this course students will cultivate a home practice and start exploring their complex inner world, including subconscious behavioral patterns, limiting beliefs, and self-sabotage. They will learn to use the principles of yoga to help bring harmony to all areas of life.
Students will meet at various locations one Saturday per month, along with weekly Zoom meetings, one monthly (family friendly) pot luck gathering, self-paced study, and one weekend retreat included in tuition! You will even get the bonus of teachings from my personal Guru, Vinod, live from Kerala, India.
