Our unique Integral Vinyasa yoga teacher training, created and led by Nina Vukas, founder of Sangha yoga centar and Spanda yoga school, (former Sangha Om yoga school) Vinyasa yoga programme has been running for a decade in Sangha yoga centar, and has, in recent years, been internationally recognised as well. Nina is now leading programmes in Zagreb and Milan as well as teacher training intensives in Sri Lanka and Portugal.
Sangha teacher training is now open for registration for generation 2018./19. Programme is scheduled to start September 22nd 2018. and finish in June 2019.
200 hour teacher training is 10 month programme based on 12 weekend intensives conducted every 3-4 weeks leaving sufficient time in between for practice and study of the new material. Every weekend intensive consists of 14 hours (9:30 am - 5:30 pm) of yoga practice and lectures plus additional hours of teaching and assisting programme (observations, assisting, Karma yoga).
In order to apply to the programme we require all students to have at least a year of committed asana practice and an interview with school director.
300 hour teacher training is for those who already hold a 200 hour diploma in another yoga system and would like to learn Vinyasa yoga system as well as how to safely teach to special groups like Prenatal or Senior yoga. All 300 hour training students will join the 200 hour programme after which students will attend an additional 100 hours of Vinyasa studies. These will include Mandala Vinyasa module and Chakra flow module as well as elect guest workshops.
For those joining for the 300 hour programme, we require a 200 hour diploma of a yoga alliance certified school.
To ensure the quality and individual approach, the maximum number of students is 16.
integral vinyasa yoga
Integral Vinyasa yoga method is based upon the ancient yoga philosophy, traditional tantric and Hatha yoga teachings as well as the modern knowledge of anatomy and movement biomechanics. The method follows traditional understanding of Vinyasa Krama, a system of progressions chosen to serve the gentle unfolding and integration of our body / mind, and expands from there.
Different sequences support different cycles in the life of each individual as well as nature's cycles. Each yoga practice should reinforce the balanced state of our body/mind considering the time of day, the season, moon phase, our own personal cycles, moods, energy levels and possible imbalances. Integral Vinyasa yoga method takes all this into consideration to promote balance, healing and integration.
Every practice includes different tools from the boundless yoga knowledge and, in addition to carefully chosen Namaskars and asana sequences, students will learn how to include pranayama, mudra, mantra and yoga philosophy in every class supporting the intention behind the practice.
Integral Vinyasa method as well as this programme is a result of Nina's two decades of yoga studies, her continuous study and interest in anatomy and biomechanics of movement as well as Nina's study of body oriented psychotherapy which uses understanding and recognising of body posture and patterns to tap into the mind and the unconscious.
The programme is supported by the faculty staff of other experts in the fields of anatomy and biomechanics, yoga therapy and ayurveda.
This is a Vinyasa yoga teacher training and our goal is to ensure that, after certification, each of our students can teach various Integral Vinyasa classes, from dynamic sequences for intermediate / advanced students, to safe sequences for beginners. We will start with one basic Integral Vinyasa flow class sequence and build upon it. At the end of the teacher training students will be able to teach different flow sequences depending on the group and the intention of the practice.
Students will also learn how to teach a safe class for senior students or those with health challenges, as well as how to teach a safe Prenatal yoga class*
