This transformational 200 hour yoga teacher training is offered on an equitable sliding scale and runs both in-person and online. Like an intentional lifestyle retreat, this program offers participants an opportunity to deepen and enhance their own personal and professional practice while expanding their toolbox to include inclusive and intentional language and sequencing designed to encourage safety and liberation.

These transformational experiential education retreats are hosted by Shanti Community & Retreat in Madrid, NM,

just 30 minutes south of Santa Fe and 1 hour north of Albuquerque.

Space is limited to a 12 students. 

Shanti Community offers the freedom to explore, the ability to live lightly on the land, and the opportunity to return to simplicity, peace, and inner stillness. Shanti Community resides on ten mesa acres and is occupied by super cool glamping-style, school buses and yurts. This sweet spot is located just a few miles from the quirky, small artist-town of Madrid.

 

Out-of-this- world sunsets with 360-degree views and the sounds of coyotes and owls will lull you to sleep just as the strong New Mexico sunlight will gently wake you in the stillness of morning. Shanti Community is completely off the grid featuring a solar array, styled-out drop-toilets, and outdoor kitchens. Shanti is peaceful, quiet, private, and energetically unmatchable.

Rent a converted bus and light a cozy fire in your wood-stove, enjoy a vintage camper with your own private kitchen, or enjoy a hike into the nearby canyon.  Save money and bring your tent and camping supplies for just $20/day! Lodging options are abundant and beautiful!

This week-long experiential education retreat will offer space for an even deeper dive into trauma-informed and culturally-literate practices. While honoring the roots of yoga, we will work together to deconstruct appropriated practices and learn how to better create space for anyBody to engage in individual and collective healing and transformation.

Throughout the week there will be plenty of practice teaching to hone our skills. Come play and practice with us!

This is a learn-at-your-own pace model designed to enhance your learning, deepen your experience, and integrate course concepts with physical practice. 

Students are asked to engage in a 90-minute practice for approximately 4x/week from September - November.  The required total number for asynchronistic learning hours to successfully complete the 200-hour RYT is 60. 

 

A variety of online practice sessions are offered. Sessions range from gentle & restorative to vigorous & strength-building for those looking for a total body workout. Students are invited to explore other yoga classes and modalities to enhance their learning and are asked to complete at least 80% of the required hours with emBodied Yoga School of NM practice sessions.
