ViraVinyasa is a Yoga Alliance approved Yoga School that offers more than any other program in the west, including systematically structured lectures to optimize learning. ViraVinyasa is a School of Yoga built to spread yogic knowledge accessible to all no matter, race, ideology, gender, creed, or cast. This is more than a teacher training. But a movement aimed to create noise, a voice for these teachings, a vibration that’s needed now more than ever. Feeding a hunger for those digging deeper. Uncovering the sheath to our sprit, our true selves.
ViraVinyasa teachers are individuals who love yoga and are ready to immerse themselves in practice.
ViraVinyasa Yoga Teacher Training is built to supply tools to aid life building skills. ViraVinyasa stands apart from ordinary programs run by teacher training factories. We ARE NOT producing robotic “Certified Instructors” who have no sensitivity towards the beauty of Yoga or its life-changing abilities. Our aim is to provide a foundation for teachers who live Yoga and not just preach it. Our goal is to be a school of yoga in the west that’s respected internationally.
Students over Styles
In this program, we will give you the confidence to teach to all demographics to best aid your students rather than to prescribe dogmatic policies. ViraVinyasa teachers have a trauma-informed base to work with special audiences. They also utilize successful strategies to thrive in all teaching settings. ViraVinyasa merges Krishnamacharya’s most popular linages into a Modern Vinyasa paradigm. With Iyengar’s alignment and precision coupled with the power of the Ashtanga method’s moving meditation, we create a bio-mechanically efficient system to provide optimal growth, minimizing possibilities of injury to ourselves and to our students. What sets us apart from other “smart flow” programs is that our philosophies and strategies are traditional and have been in practice for decades, and in some cases centuries. ViraVinyasa is rooted in schools of yoga rather than fitness fads.
What to Expect
Traditional eastern discipline, lifestyle improvements, and the inspiration to step out of your comfort zone. Anticipate puddles of sweat, tears, over coming fears, glowing faces, and a community dedicated to helping you grow. This is a space for transformation, a space for those seeking more.
Please understand that we expect you to be sincere, humble, disciplined and hard-working when you work with us. This program is by no means a way of ego-gratification. In fact, no learning ever is.
