JUDIT VARGA

E-RYT 500, RPYT, RCYT, YACEP

January 29 - February 25, 2018

This 200-hour yoga teacher training course will equip you with all the necessary tools to start teaching yoga and at the same time the course will deepen your knowledge of your Self, taking you on an inner journey on and off your mat, which is the ultimate practice of yoga.

The course is very practical and will engage your body, mind and spirit in various practices throughout the month. Judit believes in educating yoga students to take responsibility for their own practice, and that the role of the teacher is to serve, help, assist and inspire the development of each student. You will get the information necessary to make informed decisions as a yoga teacher as well as a yoga practitioner. “A good teacher will show you the door, but you have to walk through it.”


ABOUT ME


Judit.jpg

I have been practicing yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2009. It's my full time profession, passion and mission. My main style is Vinyasa Flow - I love how body, mind and spirit find harmony in the flow of the movements, the breath, and the undivided attention. I teach other yoga styles as well: Prenatal, Mom and Baby, Kids and Family, Hatha, Yin Yoga. I teach 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training courses as well as 85 hr Prenatal Yoga Teacher Trainings registered with Yoga Alliance.

I like to focus on a theme, a mental or physical challenge, or a specific pose in each class to make the practice more efficient by breaking down the immense teachings of yoga into smaller, "bite size" portions. My experience with living and teaching in different cultures (Bali, Mexico, Hungary and many other places) helped me become more flexible, less attached, more open and more creative. I believe people can learn best when they are in a safe and supportive environment and the teacher makes the learning process fun! 

My two favorite mottoes are: 


LIFE IS BETTER WITH A YOGA TEACHER 
I have seen this happen many times by helping beautiful people from all over the world become yoga teachers.

WHEN ONE TEACHES, TWO LEARN. - Robert Heinlein. 

I believe teaching is always a two-way process, and a fantastic, adventurous journey that will continue to teach, challenge and surprise you, if you remain open to these experiences as a teacher. 


the island of the gods


Simply put, Ubud, Bali is incredible.

The location of this training is no coincidence. ‘Ubud’ in Balinese translates to ‘medicine or healing’.

It’s a small town famous for its big energy.

For centuries people have been coming to Ubud to experience the magic of it’s lush jungles, green rice paddies and the beauty of its rich culture.

It's no surprise Ubud and Yoga are an incredible mix.

In the past two decades, Ubud has grown to be recognized as one of the best places to practice yoga in the world.

Everywhere you look you’ll find people carrying yoga mats, attending classes and workshops, and eating more vegetarian and raw cuisine than you can imagine.

During the training you will meet Bali in a more profound way, you will feel its energy, sacred temples, water blessings, vibrant rituals, and the nurturing culture Bali has to offer as you delve into its abundance.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW


Creating sequences

We will start working with the building blocks and smaller sections of the practice by analyzing asanas individually, then gradually move on to creating flowing and conscious sequences, linking poses in a specific way to create a specific effect. We will learn how to build the practice towards a peak pose or around a theme or how to weave a teaching from yoga philosophy into asana practice. We will learn how to engage body, mind and spirit and guide them towards the same specific goal.                                 

Safety

This course focuses on teaching and practicing in a safe way. We will learn functional anatomy, analyse the human body in motion, and work to ensure safety not only in stillness in yoga postures, but also throughout movements. We will look at the interaction between the movement of the body and the nervous system and how a wide range of motion in the body will affect the brain as well as the chemistry of the body.

Communication

Teaching yoga is a special form of communication where you have to combine verbal and non-verbal tools of communication in an artful way to get your message through. We will break down the components of communication and we will practice teaching in „bite size” portions to help you master this complex skill by the end of the course.

Filling the form with content

Moving from simple towards complex, we will first look at alignment in each pose, then work towards an understanding of what is filling up the form from the inside. We will also examine how to use bandhas in your body to harness the power of prana, how to use your breath combined with the movement to have more energy after the practice than before, and how to achieve the state of consciousness called yoga.

Relax

The aim of yoga practice is not only to become relaxed at the end, but to stay relaxed throughout the practice, even when your body, mind and spirit face challenging situations on the yoga mat. Judit’s signature guided relaxation techniques combine classic yoga nidra principles with creative visualisation.

Meditation

Controlling body (with asana), mind (with meditation) and breath (with pranayama) may be practiced simultaneously or separately. We are all different, which means that some meditation techniques work better for a certain type of person than others. During this course we will practice a variety of methods to help you choose the best one(s) for you, and so that you can recommend techniques to your students.

Adapting the practice to special needs

This is a basic yoga teacher training course that will prepare you to teach a group class to a mixed group of students. However, we will look into how a private class is different from a group setting, and what modifications may be offered to students in a group or private class (for example, students with spine problems, various injuries and conditions), with special focus on expectant and post-partum mothers.

hear from our students


Don't only take my word for it... hear from some of our students to learn just how powerful our Yoga Teacher Training is.

An incredible, knowledgeable teacher.

I found Judit to be not only an incredible gentle, loving and wonderful person but also an extremely knowledgeable teacher with so much practical experience. Judit is a yoga goddess, the amount of information stored in her mind is incredible and is so happy to share or listen even out of hours!

My month in Bali learning vinyasa flow from Judit was one of the more transformational experiences of my life.

Her knowledge of the asanas, anatomy, philosophy, pranayama and meditation, and really everything about the practice, is second to none. Importantly, I came away from the 1 month with the skills and confidence to both sequence and teach. She is an ongoing pillar of support to all of us on the course, and my life is all the better for having her in it. She is my Hungarian guru!!!!!!

I couldn’t recommend Judit enough. Don’t think about it, do it!!!! Namaste xxxxx
- Lydia Richards
I completed my YTT under her guidance and I can relate to that knowledge in my practice, in my teaching and in my every day life ever since. She is clear and safe with instructions, down-to-earth and the kindest soul I’ve ever met.
- Judit Illes
I completed my Vinyasa Flow YTT200 hour course in Bali during February 2017. The month was one of the best experiences in my life so far. The course content written and delivered by Judit was interesting, comprehensive and delivered in a structured and engaging way.

Judit has a kind and supportive manner and has a knowledge of yoga asana, yoga types, meditation, and philosophy that is second to none. Judit genuinely wants the best for her students and will go out of her way to help them. She is one of the most authentic people I have ever met.

During the month we repeatedly practiced our teaching building from short periods to the final 90 minute public class. This approach enabled me and my fellow students to build up confidence, act on feedback and refine our teaching technique as well as our personal asanas.

If you’re considering participating in a teacher training course, then choose Judit Varga.

  • What can I expect?

    For one month, you will completely absorb yourself in the ancient arts of asana, meditation, and philosophy. You will open your heart, deepen your practice, and form bonds that will last a lifetime. There will be plenty of time for some fun too–so don’t worry. Our evening sessions and group activities will have you smiling and feeling the love in ways you never thought possible.

  • Where is the training held?

    The training is held at Radiantly Alive Yoga Studio, in Ubud, Bali. The studio is located in the center of town close to restaurants, shops, and all the yogis you can imagine.

  • Will I have free time?

    The short answer is–yes. However, because this is a 200 hour training and we have a lot to cover, there won’t be large amounts of it. There will be time off each week and meal times and breaks are yours.

  • What kind of certification will I receive?

    You will receive a 200 Hour Certificate of Completion from Judit Varga's yoga school Hello Yoga, fully accredited by Yoga Alliance Yoga. You may use this certificate to apply for certification with Yoga Alliance.

  • How early should I arrive prior to the training?

    This is entirely up to you. If you are travelling long distances, you may want to allow some extra time to get settled in. Also, please consider your Visa restrictions (see Visa section below).

  • What's the weather like in Bali?

    Bali is approximately 8 degrees south of the equator. So you can expect a tropical, warm and humid climate all year around with two main distinctive seasons: Dry Season (March-October) and Rainy Season (November-February). The temperature is humid and generally 27-31 (77-88 F).

  • What kind of food is available?

    The food in Ubud is absolutely amazing. Whether omnivore, vegetarian, vegan, or completely raw, this town caters to all tastes. Click here for just a small sampling of what Ubud has to offer.

  • What should I bring?

    While there will be plenty of time for rest and integration, the training can be a very consuming experience. For that reason, we recommend that you bring what you need with you. Don’t worry though, if you forget anything, you can find it here in Ubud.

    We suggest packing:

    • Your favorite yoga mat. If you prefer not to travel with your mat, we also have them at the studio.
    • Comfortable yoga clothes
    • Pool necessities, including swimsuit and sunscreen.
    • Comfortable footwear (flip-flops, open air shoes, etc. are practical).
    • Toiletries, including natural mosquito repellent. It will be provided in the yoga shala and during all class and activities, better if you have your own for meals time and night.
    • Any special medications/treatments you may need.
    • Class notebook, personal journal, pens.
    • Electric adapter (two round pins, 220 volt)
    • Refillable water bottle

  • What is included in the cost?

    Cost includes tuition, a manual and all materials.

  • Do I need a visa for Bali?

    To enter Indonesia, your passport must have a minimum of 6 months remaining validity from the date of your prospective DEPARTURE FROM Bali. Please be proactive and learn about Visa requirements particular to your own home country in advance of actual travel and ask for confirmation when closer to your departure date since immigration requirements in Indonesia are subject to sudden changes.

    If you decide to enter the country on a free, Visa on Arrival, please know this Visa is not renewable. You will be charged a 300,000 IDR fee for every day you overstay your Visa. If you’re planning to overstay less than 3 days, this may be a more affordable option than obtaining a visa. You may also consider obtaining a 60 day Visa on Arrival ($35 USD) which is renewable after 30 days. If you obtain one of these, please consider, Radiantly Alive cannot assist you with the renewal and cannot guarantee you will have time during the training to go to Immigration for the renewal process.

    We will do our best to keep you updated on any changes we become aware of, however it is solely your responsibility to arrange your visa and paperwork for the time you plan to be in Bali. We strongly recommend you obtain a visa in advance from the Indonesian Consulate in your home country. This will allow you to relax and enjoy the training without concerns of Visa renewal. If you elect to get a visa that requires a renewal during the course of the training we cannot guarantee you will have the time and availability to leave the training site to do so.

  • Do I need travel insurance?

    It may be worth being comprehensively insured to cover all costs and consequences of medical treatment,repatriation, damage/theft/loss of personal belongings, recovery of course fees and flights booked in the event of cancellation or early departure.

  • What about medical care?

    In the case of minor illnesses or injuries, there are a few medical clinics in the local Ubud area and several international clinics closer to the airport. These clinics typically do not accept insurance (though you may be reimbursed through your insurance provider) and are relatively inexpensive. If situations require extreme medical emergency care, patients are evacuated to Singapore. Due to significant cost evacuation care, it is advisable to check this coverage is included on your medical plan.

    Important warning

    it shouldn’t need to be stated though due to the extreme nature of penalties in Indonesia we put an extra cautionary note DO NOT bring any even “mild” drugs/narcotics (other than prescription) into the Country. Violators, even if they are not from Indonesia, are subject to life in a 3rd world prison and the death penalty, and the foreign governments can do very little about it: don’t take any risks.

  • How good at Yoga do I have to be to attend?

    We recommend you have at least 1 year experience practicing yoga, however there are no specific asana or fitness requirements.
