|Level II Theme: Yoga and Story
"The Universe is made of stories, not atoms." - Muriel Rukeyser. Story is our essence, the source and expression of every dream, dread, vision, death, birth and discovery. Our humanity and inhumanity is rooted in it, tangled in the mystery of "why?" and the suspense of "what next?" Story is Nature`s way of becoming conscious of itself, and as storytellers we work with it in order to become conscious of ourselves.
This module is an exploration of how yoga and life are like stories. The structures of story are relevant to both creating a satisfying experience in yoga class as well as adding a multi-layered richness to the physical asana experience. We will look into how story telling is useful as a yoga teacher, teaching by metaphor, the protagonists and antagonists of our yoga practice, Indian (and more) mythologies related to yoga, the stories of the actual poses and more.
Your training includes exceptional experts in Jivamukti, Iyengar yoga, Astanga Vinyasa yoga, Yogic Anatomy, chanting, Vedas and kirtan and more.

Would you like to speak with someone who completed the Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Training? We're happy to send you a list of email address and phone numbers of graduates around the world who will share with you about their experience.
Are you ready to go deeper with Yoga? Are you currently teaching, and interested in taking your teaching to a more powerful and effective level? Already graduated from a teacher training and seeking to further your education? Looking for a deep and challenging immersion into yoga philosophy and technique?
Devoted to growth and learning, we`ve innovated a new approach to the timeless power of yoga - our Level II teacher training modules are geared toward the evolution of the understanding, practice and teaching of yoga, and are specifically designed to benefit those for whom yoga is already a part of life.
Our modules intelligently synthesize a blend of potent components - master teachers; focused, effective, and cutting edge teaching methodologies and learning environment; organic living foods; and the spiritual and natural beauty of Bali - to create a magical gestalt of experience. Each Level II training module also features a specific theme relevant to the modern yogi aspiring to greater joy in their life in a contemporary world, illustrated by a rotating team of master teachers. We highlight and explore the theme for each module through philosophy study, physical practice, and learning how to inspire those who come to us. Trainees can artfully create their own intermediate yoga education and training by selecting which modules and themes they are interested in exploring -each one unique and never to be repeated. This allows the advanced practitioner to optimize their deeper training according to interests and strengths.
Themes and faculty schedules are included below. Each of the 14-day Level II modules stands alone as a complete experience (100 CEUs), and any three of them may be combined to meet the requirements for the Yoga Alliance 500RYT training (prerequisites apply). Daniel Aaron, E-RYT 500, guides each module and orchestrates the curriculum along with guest gurus in the styles of Astanga, Iyengar, Jivamukti and more.
Important Note - This training is not for everyone!
There are prerequisites of yoga experience for these Level II modules along though more important is 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. These attributes 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 Vibrant Living Yoga Teacher Trainings are ideal for those who wish to create something new, to fly higher.

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.
