Join us for the Fiji Yoga Teacher Training
September 7-30, 2016
Join Sadhana Yoga School for 24 days in Paradise. Participate in this 200hour training that will focus on living yoga on and off your mat. Spend time learn from our experienced facilitators and benefit from their years of experience and knowledge in the world of yoga and then use this knowledge to transform your experience in daily life.
This 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training program will give you much more than a certificate. It will be a personally focused journey that you share with others. We are all on our own path, but that path leads us to the same place. In this way we can support each other through the process.
Fiji is an idyllic Pacific setting with opportunities to snorkel, scuba dive, go boating with dolphins, plunge into waterfalls, and see hot mud pools. It’s wonderful. There’s also a real joy in doing yoga in the warmth – never any need for socks even in the morning, constantly warm muscles to power you through the sun salutations, and only occasionally a need for a covering in the longest of savasanas.
We Teach Sadhana Yoga
The Yoga of Spiritual Practice
We use Patanjali’s Eight-Fold Path (Ashtanga Yoga) as our guide in how we teach the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual benefits that are accessible through daily practice. Our program includes asana (postures), meditation, pranayama (breath work) mantra (chanting of Sanskrit) as well as the study of yoga philosophy.
The Sadhana Vinyasa Flow is the yoga of spiritual practice based on the Ashtanga vinyasa tradition. Each pose is typically held between five to ten breaths followed by a breath-controlled vinyasa leading to the next pose. In this sequence we move with fluidity, buoyancy, strength, and vigor.
The Sadhana Hatha Flow is the yoga of spiritual practice based on the classic Sivananda tradition. After Sun Salutations warm-ups, postures are held for a space of time. By integrating breath and intention, each pose becomes a pose of meditation.
Beyond Professional, into the Personal
Become a Certified Teacher
After graduation, you will receive a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certificate. You will be able to register with Yoga Alliance and teach anywhere in the world.
Our program includes the study of asana (physical postures), meditation, pranayama (breath work), mantra (chanting of Sanskrit), yoga philosophy, physical and energetic anatomy, the yogic diet, the art of sequencing and assisting, the kriyas, Ayurveda, special populations, and yoga in the marketplace.
Days begin with sunrise chanting, breathing practices, mediation and asana class. After a light snack, we meet for sutra study or anatomy. Then we break for brunch and karma yoga. In the afternoons, there will be a light lunch, lectures on yogic topics and teaching workshops. We finish our days with a family style vegetarian dinner followed by satsang, our community gathering.

“For me it has been an on-going cycle of learning,changing and growing. I’m learning one lesson after another…without yoga I would be lost from my path. My body craves the breathe, the practice. Yoga & meditation have shown me many different worlds… but the most beautiful part is “we are all connected are all one.” -Emily Rendinaro
Sadhana Yoga School is truly is a well-rounded way to learn and understand not only what yoga does for you physically but spiritually, consciously, and wholly for the complete mind, body, soul experience. I recommend this course for anyone embarking on the path of wanting to not only learn how to teach yoga, but also develop a compelling understanding of the ancient principles of yoga that make it what it is today. ~Andrea
I am half-way through my 8 month teacher training program and I can already say it has been life changing. Each monthly weekend is so rich and full of inspiration, knowledge, and peace. I love seeing the path that lies ahead begin to unfold and thanks to this program and the wonderful facilitators, I am inspired on a daily basis. Namaste.~Sarah
