Perhaps you’ve heard the words “community living” popping up more and more in recent years. Have you ever considered it for yourself?
What about living in a spacious home with an in-house chef, private beach access, and a group of like-minded individuals to live, breathe and practice yoga with for 30 days? Does this appeal to you?
Do you feel intimidated by the idea of taking a yoga teacher training? Is it hard, or impossible, to imagine yourself guiding a room full of yogis? You’re not alone. The following are some of the main concerns many people have before embarking on their yoga journey
Kailua is home to a long, graceful bay which is also protected by a coral reef. The nearly 4-mile-long stretch of ivory sand is made for strolling, and the weather and wave conditions can be just about perfect for swimming, kayaking, windsurfing and kitesurfing.
The reason I return to evolation trainings is, one, the community is so welcoming and filled with joy, that it’s a great break from day to day life. However the main reason is that I am always learning something new.
Sciatica has a long (and painful!) history. As far back as the 5th century BCE, doctors and sciatica patients have tried a host of imaginative remedies, from leeches (yikes!) and hot coals in Roman times to 20th-century use of creams and injections.
We’ve said it before and will say again that your teacher training experience begins the day you decide to register for training. That’s right! While you may not be on-site with other trainees and learning through your immersion experience each day, the learning process begins as soon as you decide to register. It starts with your first “Yes!” to your transformational yoga journey.
Have you ever noticed how some days, despite your best intentions, you just have a really hard time mustering up the willpower to go to a yoga class? I get it— it can feel like a big commitment to take an hour out of your day and make it to your mat, but I also know that once I’ve made it to class, I’m always happy that I went!
Unfortunately, it’s not as easy to keep your mat clean as it is your bed linens! You might have tried a few things, but if you need some help in keeping your mat clean, here are 10 ways to maintain your mat.
WHAT GRADUATES WANT YOU TO KNOW...
"Evolation's Hot Teacher Training was AMAZING! The owner of the studio where I am teaching now was thrilled with my readiness to teach the day I arrived home. Top notch!!!"
Debbie Nack - Santa Barbara, CA Graduate
"I just finished my Teachers training in Santa Barbara and I could not have had a better experience. The teachers are world class and the atmosphere in the studio warm. I got so much more out of the experience then I could have ever hoped for. Grateful."
Frida Bergh - Santa Barbara, CA Graduate
"I go home to teach with not just knowledge of Asana (yoga postures) but a far deeper understanding of the true essence of yoga. I am blessed to have found such a wonderful yoga family with Evolation and how they create space for me to continue to grow. This isn’t just a company making money selling yoga, but a true family sharing love and knowledge in the purest way. I am reminded of WHY we teach yoga… to help people to connect to the highest version of themselves, to become healthy in body, mind and spirit."
-Zana O'Connell, Paris Hot & Berlin Flow Graduate
"I attended the 500 hr teacher training in Santa Barbara. I can say that about 4 years later this training is deeply ingrained in me and my teaching. Mark and Zefea along with all the other highly skilled teachers gave us the tools to start our teaching journey, but much more beyond that. We lived closely together, practiced the series along with other forms, we were disciplined, fed incredibly healthy meals, and were taken good care of. I am thankful everyday for this training for my practice, for my teaching, and for the lifelong friends I made. To say it was a life-changing experience is an understatement!"
Kristen Steiner - Santa Barbara, CA Graduate
"My yoga teacher training with evolation was absolutely incredible. I trained with an amazing group of people and the synergy of everyone together studying, teaching, practicing yoga created this really beautiful vibe that inspired growth and self- exploration. I feel I received so much more than I paid for! It’s hard to describe in words how significant the experience was to me and it feels strange to even try. Just give them a call and you’ll understand."
-Daniela Gil, Buffalo, NY & Tampa, FL Graduate
"Evolation’s training meets the definition of inclusive and comprehensive.- Teachers don’t just lecture they include students in the training sessions. In short, they know their stuff and love teaching others about this thing we call yoga. Students become uplifted and form a tight bond and because the groups are so small you will become an instant family and learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible."
-Leah McNaughton, Tampa, FL Graduate
"To me, the most valuable parts of the training were practice teaching sessions and yoga philosophy lectures. Practice teaching was uncomfortable, nerve racking, and ultimately exceptionally rewarding. Yoga lectures opened my eyes to the history and philosophies of yoga and suddenly my practice, my desire to teach, and the inherent ideas I had been having since beginning to practice, all clicked. Every aspect of training provided so much valuable information for an aspiring teacher."
-Anna O'Keefe, Tampa, FL Graduate
