The TYTT Intensive means you get to experience full absorption in Yoga. One of the best things about Tamara Yoga Teacher Training is how deep it is. Not for the faint hearted, it’s not for the people who come to class just to stretch a bit. It’s for those of us who’ve discovered something profound. Something, paradoxically we feel we’ve been missing; yet it’s been deep within us. Truth. Connection. Bliss.
It’s like we start to experience feeling more like ourselves. And we have to learn more. And we can’t not share it. Because Yoga opens us to the magic of life again, just like when we were little, and our imaginations were magical, and so much was enchanting to us. When you recollect your own pure being, it’s wonderful for everybody because we’re all interconnected. Maybe that’s one of the reasons such special bonds form in TYTT.
Teaching Yoga is a gift and a joy. If you’ve got that kind of secret excitement that you know this is what you want to do, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
The Intensive format works for those who want to eat, breathe and sleep Yoga for a concentrated period of time.
