Wake up! That's the message of the Yoga Teacher. It's a call to wake ourselves up first. As we do so, we increasingly live the magnificence that we are, see it in others, and guide them to realize it too.
The Radiantly Alive Yoga teacher training originated in Daniel Aaron's life dedicated to yoga and awakening. Awareness of our incredible potential for happiness, and the knowledge that we are naturally encoded with everything we need to actualize it, has led Daniel Aaron on amazing journeys in the fields of health and consciousness. Yoga is an integral component of my explorations, and continues to delight me as vehicle for guiding others.
In the training we experience the essence of Yoga through a unique and holistic synthesis of the best possible methods, harmonized through the timeless wisdom of ancient scripture and philosophy applied in a contemporary context. The revolutionary model of the Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training intensive benefits from today's top teachers to illuminate a curriculum that is as thorough as it is diverse.
Together we create the ultimate Yogic environment for learning and transformation: a community of like-minded individuals from around the world that supports one another in living our true potential.
Every component and detail is top caliber, including the expertise of the exceptional guest faculty, the natural beauty and heart of Bali, the abundant, simple luxury of Anahata Villas, the healthiest, tastiest organic living food nutrition, and so much more.
The Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training is suitable for any level of experience. Whether you are already teaching, about to begin or are newly acquainted with the benefits of yoga, waking up to who you really are not only frees you to live the life you always knew was possible, it also frees others - just by being you. Deepening your skills, understanding, confidence and presence in this foundational teacher training enables you to reach people more effectively through your authentic experience of yoga. It provides you with a comprehensive yoga education and exceeds the requirements for Yoga Alliance's 200-hour certification. You will dive deeply into extraordinary living, yoga and teaching.
Important Note - This training is not for everyone!
Though there is no prerequisite of yoga experience - as the state of Yoga is available to us all now - an attitude of genuine desire to immerse yourself in this intensive program, commitment to be present and participate to the best of your ability in all classes, an eagerness for challenge and a willingness to venture beyond your comfort zone, are absolutely necessary. In other words, if you`re only interested in the certification, a leisurely yoga retreat or holiday, this training is not for you.
It is probable that after this training your life will not be the same. Seen from new heights, previous terrain may look or feel completely different. Some of the tools we play with include periods of introspection through silence, juice fasting, exercises in exploring inter and intrapersonal awareness, and more. The Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training is ideal for those who wish to create something new, to fly higher.

Drawing on my extensive yoga practice and training (with dozens of modern masters), you will dive deeply into a spectrum of today's yogic styles.

"Daniel is a caring and dedicated yogi who has experienced the fullness of the teachings and brings that fullness to all those with whom he shares."

The island of the gods, Bali and her people is a culture Yoga International magazine describes as 'living yoga.' Spirituality, harmony with nature, peacefulness - these elements embody the Balinese way of life. Ubud, an artist's Mecca, is the cultural heart of Bali. Embedded in rice terraces, temples and powerful energy, at a slight elevation so cooler than the nearby coastal heat, Ubud's climate has turned it into the perfect yogic destination.

About Gourmet Living Foods
I choose living food to enhance my life. For most of us, what we eat affects how we feel. Happily I've discovered that the healthiest food is also the best tasting. I eat the best food ever – yummy, vibrant, rejuvenating – just in case we are what we eat.
Fresh daily coconuts, tropical fruits, organic salads and raw chocolate is the ideal nourishment for the yogic lifestyle. Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training is happy to present you a month of Gourmet, high vibration Living Food. (Delicious cooked vegetarian food will also be available, at student's expense).
