200 Hour Hatha Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training, 24 October – 6/13 November | Barcelona
Fill in the form to make an enquiry or booking. We will get back to you within 24 hours or email us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our 200-hour YTT is where it all begins. This course offers a robust introduction to the Lakshmi Rising Hatha Vinyasa Flow method in an intensive, transformational environment.
Lakshmi Rising’s YTT encompasses our mission of education, empowerment, and evolution; draws from many traditions; and emphasises more than the physical practice of yoga. We are where sweat, strength, flexibility, and fun meet softness, quiet, introspection, and self-love.
And we work with your schedule! Students can choose from two options: a 21-day immersion intensive or a 14-day immersion intensive followed by supplemental online coursework that can be completed within one year.
Opt for a 21-day intensive, and you’ll be ready to register with Yoga Alliance as soon as you return home. Don’t have that much time? If you choose the 14-day option, you’ll spend two weeks in intensive study in a luxurious environment, then finish the course remotely—at your own pace, and from anywhere.
The Lakshmi Rising Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) program is unique, transformative, and highly regarded worldwide. Lakshmi Rising Hatha Vinyasa Yoga is an awareness-based practice that includes fluid, dynamic asana, kriya, pranayama, mantra, meditation, dance, wellness, self-care, and ritual for optimal health and personal growth. Our method is a revitalising approach to develop mindful self-awakening and cultivate strength and flexibility on all levels through the practice of yoga.
We delve into the philosophy of yoga, different styles of meditation, the art of ritual and creating sacred space, ayurveda, anatomy of the physical and energetic bodies, the business of yoga and more. Not only will you deepen your own practice and self awareness, you will come away from this experience with all of the tools necessary to begin teaching and sharing your passion.
Villa Blanca is a grand manor with views over the Mediterranean sea, ideally located near Barcelona and Costa Brava. Built in 1909, it is a luxury family-owned property with lots of old world charm and history.
Conveniently located in a prestigious and isolated residential area and is perfect for our yoga teacher training, not to mention the wonderful beach of S. Vicenç de Montalt is only 5 minutes walking distance and has been awarded the Blue Flag for its high quality standards and cleanliness. This 2km long beach is full of “tapas chiringuitos,” and did we mention, is only a 5 min walk away from our property!
The common areas are full of charm, coziness and mesmerising views. The manor is styled with belle époque modernist furniture and architecture with enchanting ceiling-high libraries, chill-out areas with comfortable seating, and even a 1909 Steinway Piano that has been refurbished to mint condition!
For our 3 daily gourmet meals, we will be dining al fresco as well as in the indoor dining hall, large enough for 32 people, while we enjoy our Gaia Gourmet cuisine. There’s even a conference room with 65” smart TV for our yoga lectures
During our breaks we will fall in love with their breathtaking gardens. This beautiful villa is surrounded by 5 hectares of romantic gardens designed by the famous architect Jean-Baptiste N. Forestier.
Enjoy a relaxing walk through these magnificent, well-kept gardens with beautiful views to the Mediterranean which are full of hundred-year-old pine trees, oaks, palm trees and small ponds. And if this is not enough, there’s a large swimming pool of 17x7m is perfect for a midday dip!
