March 21 – 29, 2015 Will Duprey – 300 RYT Advanced Teacher Training Fire of Purification
NOW you are ready to immerse yourself in the practice of yoga and live in it. As we integrate into the philosophies that enrich our living we begin to observe directly through contact with like-minded practitioners. If one is born with all the tools to obtain a state of yoga then certainly being around others with the same goal allows for certain discovery of that spark within. The Advanced Training will take you deeper into the integration of practice to enrich the living experience. Even though we commonly view Hatha Yoga as being a physical practice involving multiple styles it is a distinct science referred to as Shadanga Yoga. This distinct path focuses particularly on prana and awakening the divine energy. Essentially we practice a way to develop that burn for living, teaching and creating.
Comprised of three distinct modules – JOURNEY TO SELF, FIRE OF PURIFICATION, and SONG WITHIN - that fulfill 300 hours of Advanced Training and are a registered program with Yoga Alliance. Fire of Purification or Journey to Self are required before attending Song Within. Fire of Purification and Journey to Self can be taken in any order. Completion of all three modules acts as a bridge program bringing a 200 RYT to a 500 RYT. Enrollment in each module is limited to offer a better student to teacher ratio and to keep the quality of the program at it’s highest standards. Certification for 500 RYT will be given upon completion of all course requirements. All of Will Duprey Yoga training programs and retreats donate %3 for Change. That’s right! 3% of profits will be made toward efforts in directly helping the local community or a designated organization of change . . . So while you are working within you are financially and spiritually contributing in the world outside.
