THERAPEUTIC HATHA VINYASA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING 200H TTC ONLINE AND PRESENCE
Certified by 1 Love 1 Heart Yoga School
1heart1loveyoga trainings and retreats, holds the structure and discipline of classical Hatha, infused with the immense creativity and dance-like flow of modern Vinyasa. It is a fresh and inspired blend of classical therapeutic and modern styles. We will get into the deeply and fully understanding of the body form by the development of restorative techniques to provide assertive tools to the students that may one day not just teach yoga but also teach how to heal. Creativity, intuition will be also a part of our classes, for us is very important to make our students aware of their own inner creative power to be developed in their classes. Learn the process of allowing the ultimate guidance to be from within… Experience the practice becoming exquisitely complete.
Each day is layered with practices rooted in yogic philosophy, which allow you to build physical and emotional strength, healthy habits, and ultimately a more vital, conscious way of life. We focus on setting a strong foundation in yogic basics – both physical and non-physical, allowing our students to shed old habits and direct the body-mind toward a higher purpose.
Rooted in the belief that EVERY Being has a purpose and a powerful message to share, this training encourages your unique gifts to be expressed authentically and powerfully. We invite, not only those who wish to become teachers, but anyone who wants to take their practice to deeper physical, mental and spiritual levels.
We will be working in a new way of perceiving reality, step by step in our consciousness workshops, as we will learn to inhibit the modifications of the mind that create suffering by experimenting and observing them in our ordinary lives. We will work on the concept of the divine indifference and we will learn how to bring it into our reality and common conflicts. The divine indifference is the state where we discover that no comment is necessary to fulfill the requirements of life and that what it seemed necessary was actually superfluous, in the same way that the mental process of explaining how beautiful a sunset can reduce the beauty of a sunset itself.
The Yoga Teacher Training courses reflect an energetic, therapeutic and spiritual approach to yoga. Sequences taught are designed to improve both strength and flexibility as well as bring awareness to the flow of subtle energy through the body.
We will enter towards the practice of a deeper life experience, where the awakening of consciousness is a fundamental part of the program:
- Studying tools that will lead us to understand more about life, that is, about the spiritual laws on which it is based, decoding reality and taking an objective look from inside to outside of oneself.
- Making a holistic approach to the concepts of body, mind, spirit, ego, sexuality, love, suffering, emotions, trinity, desire ….
- Applying each message, we receive to the practice of daily life, we intend to reveal during training and through yoga, the keys to grasp and unlock our personal resistances.
Our personal approach is to guide you into a spiritual practice of self-empowering, inner self discovery and creativity.

The teachers come from different lineages of Hatha, Vinyasa, iyengar Yoga, providing different insight and perspective in the art of teaching yoga. Differences between different teaching methods can be a great added value in the content of what is proposed, and the students in this way, will have a chance of broadening their understanding because they will be able to see the same situation from different perspective, fostering a deep curiosity for the exploration of yoga and life. We believe that this can surely be a good foundation from where, our students, can begin their own personal journey into the investigation of the yogic path. The investigation of the traditional practice is done in a way that honors the pure tradition, but also ignites an investigation that makes the practice relevant and realistic in our modern world.
