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
Immersions 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 Immersions 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
Immersion 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 Immersion 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 Immersions 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 Immersions 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 Immersion and orchestrates
the curriculum along with guest gurus in the styles of Astanga,
Iyengar, Jivamukti and more.
Note - This training is not for everyone!
There are prerequisites
of yoga experience for these Level II Immersions 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
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. The Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Trainings are ideal
for those who wish to create something new, to fly higher.
Your training includes exceptional experts in Radiantly Alive Yoga, Vinyasa yoga, Tripsichore Yoga, Yogic Anatomy, chanting, Vedas and kirtan and more.
While defining the success or quality of our lives raises many interesting questions, most of us have some evaluative sense of the degree to which we are creating our lives how we want. And while we apprehend our whole life intuitively, we could also break it down into individual 'now' moments. Similarly, we grasp when a yoga class is great, or satisfying in some deep way. And while there are many components that make up the whole of that classes effectiveness, the sequential development of the asana is one of the most important. One definition for Vinyasa Krama is to place something in a special way. An asana class, like life, can be crafted for specific effects depending on our desired outcome. This is the art of sequencing.
In this Level II training, we will draw upon many different aspects of modern yoga to deepen our understanding of asana, sequencing and life. With a primary goal of developing sequencing as teachers, we will additionally utilize the dynamic teaching and growth field of our learning community to examine and improve all aspects of our teaching and practice.
Edward Clark, Founder Tripsichore Yoga:
Appropriate sequencing is one of the hallmarks of a good class and is something that requires logic and imagination. The yoga teacher creates the trajectory of the class with consideration given to physical and philosophical development. They evaluate the aptitude of their students and determine the amount of time that can be spent working on various techniques, postures and concentrative aims. Good teachers take into account the structure of the class from beginning to end as well as what goes into its smaller segments. They find ways to put forth their own knowledge in a way that is unique to them. This seems obvious, yet, in practise, too often teachers resort to mundane solutions – they present rote sequences and parrot the teachings of others.
This Level II Immersion will develop the participants' ability to both present and devise sequences. The course will investigate the construction of a Tripsichore class as well looking at how to design logical and innovative sequences.
The course will investigate:
Varieties of ways to teach inversions/forward bends/twists
Methods for teaching back bends to beginners
How a teacher can give instruction in something they don't personally do well
Deep strategies in sequencing:
How is the breathing affected and developed?
What are the concentrative aims?
What are accommodations for students' individual anatomy/injury/problems?
Movement versus stillness
Ease versus effort
What does on in a posture: Go deeper? Find stillness? Breathe evenly?
A curious anomaly: it is easy to devise difficult variations of postures, but it is hard to find innovative basic ones.

The Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio, Ubud, Bali
This training is unlike any training we've ever offered. You will be among the first trainees to experience the brand new Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio in Ubud, Bali. The eco-harmonious architectural masterpiece is inspiring and full of light. It is sure to become a premier destination for yoga, raw food, and holistic treatments.
The Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio encompasses everything that makes Bali magical. It blends the power of nature with the wisdom of the soul. It is a sacred place of harmony, health, and transformation.
As a trainee, you'll spend your days at the studio. During meal times, you can feast on raw meals in the Yogi Café within Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio or go to any nearby restaurants. The Studio is central in Ubud--right across the street from Bali Buddha. This training is not residential. You have the freedom to find your own place to stay and choose where you want to eat. Resources are listed in our Know Before You Go packet of information.
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.
