EWAM GARDEN 1,000 BUDDHAS
This 16 day Intensive (15 nights, 16 days) is a retreat style, immersive experience for those wishing to either deepen their personal practice or to learn to effectively teach safe, powerful sequences designed to touch the lives of students both on and off of their mats.
Our 200 hour Foundational teacher training will teach you the art of vinyasa krama (wise progressive sequencing) taking into account kinesiology and energetics. You will learn to sequence both hatha yoga and vinyasa yoga style classes.
We believe you can only teach who you are. This unique program will provide you with the tools to connect with your most authentic self, to walk your sva dharma (personal path) with courage and grace, and to truly live the teachings of yoga both on and off of your mat.
Dedicated as an International Peace Center, the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas supports people in cultivating inner peace and in preserving the ancient culture of Tibet. The mission of the Garden is to provide people of all faiths with an opportunity to generate profound merit, to reduce global negativity, and to bring about lasting peace. Through the use of the ancient symbols of Buddhism, the Garden awakens one’s natural inner qualities of joy, wisdom, and compassion.
Training will be held onsite at the Garden with shared housing on the property.
We are deeply honored to have been invited to offer training at this very special location.
Participants can expect morning meditation and asana practices in the beauty of the garden.
We are honored to offer a guest teaching session with a seated lama as part of this special program as well as a sweat ceremony on the Jaco river.
This training is super special. And part of your time here is dedicated to service. We live in community, we work together to maintain the space and volunteering in the garden is encouraged but not required. Expect to take turns sweeping the studio and completing other shared tasks.
