Looking to go deeper with your dhyana (meditation) practice or perhaps you are on the path as a yoga teacher and are looking to add a meditation element to your classes?
Join Swami Pujan and senior teachers at Byron Yoga Retreat Centre to gain valuable knowledge and insights into meditation techniques and teaching methods. Gain a 50 hour certificate of completion, but most importantly – gain a deeper understanding of self.
On this six day Meditation Teacher Training course you will develop your personal practice under the guidance of Swami Pujan and other Byron Yoga Centre’s Senior Meditation Instructors explore the theory of meditation and learn techniques and teaching methods of various forms of meditation (manual provided). These techniques will include Buddhist and Yogic traditions such as breath focus, walking meditation, mantra and chanting. The aim is that you will find the technique that works best for you in quietening the mind and that yoga teachers find a way to integrate meditation into their classes to enhance the overall depth and benefits for students.
The training is suitable for those looking to deepen their personal practice and understanding and also for those on the teaching path. Lead by Swami Pujan and including other senior teachers, the program includes a balance of yoga classes, wellness and philosophy sessions and teacher training workshops. The philosophy will focus on the path of Jnana Yoga and include self enquiry. You will also have time to reflect and relax by the mineral salt swimming pool or at the beach.
