December 2 - 3, 2018

Meditation Teacher Training for Yoga Teachers, Healers, and Health Care Professionals

This two day training is geared toward yoga teachers, healthcare professionals, social workers, and therapists who want to develop or deepen a practice of their own, and tools to better serve their students and clients.

Meditation is the practice of quieting the chatter in the mind so that we can slow down, soothe our nervous system and connect with who we truly are. Ritual is part of the human instinct. And what makes it powerful or sacred, is the intention behind it. Committing to a meditation practice can bring about profound and beneficial shifts in the way we experience our thoughts and our lives. By creating our own meditation ritual, we are rooting ourselves in a practice so we can truly understand it, reap the benefits of it, and bring it authentically to others. It can be challenging to start and to stick with it, but this is why April wants to help and bring you these tools!

When we are grounded in the practices we can then teach and serve others. By bringing these practices to others we are giving a gift that reaches more than physical practice can do alone. This training will prepare you to set up your own committed meditation practice and also help you get comfortable teaching others.

Develop Personal Ritual & Tools to Share in your Professional Practice

This training will include simple breathing techniques and also ancient practices from the Ishta Lineage and school that April uses daily and teaches as a Senior Ishta Yoga Teacher. The program will include an explanation of meditation and the underlying philosophies of the practice. During the weekend you will:
