200hr YOGA TEACHER TRAINING ON MAUI: May 6-31st 2018

ALOHA AND NAMASTE!

We invite you to join us here on the magical island of Maui, Hawaii for 25 glorious days of yoga, fun, friendship and personal growth.  

During this time we will take a dive deep into your personal practice, while giving you the skills you need to share this practice with authenticity and confidence!  You will be able to step confidently into the role of community builder and lifestyle ambassador!  

Even if you don’t want to teach you will learn so much about yourself, expand your practice to new levels, and make the most amazing friends and memories. And OF COURSE you will get to see and experience the magical beauty of  Maui!

 

This training will be held at the famous Banyan Tree House Retreat Centre in Makawao, located on the world famous Maui North Shore.   The large and beautiful grounds overlook the Valley Isle and North Shore and also offer a 50 ft. swimming pool and jacuzzi  - perfect for bathing, reading, studying AND relaxing during the mid-day break! 

Our daily practice and studies will be in the specially designed 700 sq. ft Yoga and Meditation Studio which is fully equipped with yoga props, rope wall and a state of the art audio and video system.  

Our self catering (shared) accommodations will be in the beautiful Plantation House which boasts a magnificent kitchen perfect for creating healthy and nourishing meals from our local, organic produce bought weekly from the Kula Farmers Market and the famous Mana Foods in Paia.

We believe that to teach well you need to be of optimal physical and mental health so we can share that positive and uplifting energy with our students. During our time together you will enjoy daily yoga and an opportunity to experience the healthy lifestyle of the islands, soaking up the Mana, resting, eating and sleeping well, so that you graduate feeling rejuvenated and inspired.  

We believe that all work and no play makes for a very boring Yogi!  Saturday day is your day off to explore the beautiful island of Maui!

We suggest starting your day off at the Kula Farmers Market to stock up on fresh, local organic produce that will keep you nourished through the week ahead!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

You will fly into Kahului Airport on the island of Maui

You will need to arrange for either a taxi or personal car hire to make your way to Banyan Tree Retreat Centre in Makawao, 20 minutes from the airport.

Please make sure that you arrive by noon to settle in . Welcome and Orientation is at 1pm

Our Retreat Centre is a 10 minute drive from the North Shore beaches of Paia, 15 minutes from Kahului City Centre and 5-10 minutes drive to Makwao Town Centre. I would suggest hiring a car for your weekly day off. You can always make arrangements to share this cost with some of your fellow students! You can visit the Kula Farmers Market and Mana Foods in Paia to stock up for your weeks supplies and then use the rest of the day to explore the island! If you wish to have a car full time to make use of your 2hr mid day break or evenings to do other activities we can assist you in finding affordable local car hire.

If you wish to arrive early or stay later we can assist you with finding suitable accommodations. There are options to stay at the Banyan Tree house resort or any of the other number of lovely hostels, hotels and B&B’s in the area.

Please note that the Bayan Tree House Centre does offer offer complimentary WIFI

The cost of the Trainings DOES NOT INCLUDE FOOD. You will need to arrange to do you own food shopping. Our Plantation House offers a wonderfully large kitchen that will allow you to cook your own meals.

1 x 2 inch 3-ring binder

All pens, highlighters, coloring pens

Computer – for after class research

All required reading material (see curriculum page)

Your own yoga mat

Optional – small medical kit (Paia has a dentist, chiropractor, health store and body workers but the closest pharmacy and hospital is 15 minutes away in Kahului). Although we have a First Aid kit at the studio you may need to bring your own supplies and don’t forget any personal medications you need. Please ensure you have medical insurance. You will be asked to sign an activities waiver and you will be fully responsible for your own actions when not with us.

Most of your day is spent inside the studio in class. You may want to bring a change of yoga clothes for your late afternoon practice. The weather is a mild all year but we do have winter rains so you may need to bring an umbrella, appropriate shoes for your days off and slightly warmer clothing (Makwao sits at a higher elevation and evenings can be refreshingly chilly!).

.

We have scheduled a mid day break during the hottest part of the day so that you may head to the beach (car hire required) or save on time and relax by the pool or in the garden. This means swimsuits, a beach towel, hat, sunscreen, etc are a must!.

On your day’s off you will be able to go further afield to enjoy more of the island beaches, swimming and hiking and so bring the right clothes and walking/hiking shoes with you (or you can shop from one of the great stores in Paia).

The first 2 weeks are primarily spent in the seat of the student although you will have opportunities to observe classes being taught. During the third week you will begin to practice teaching poses to each other and small sequences

The final week is when you will lead a class during your practicum exam. Your “students” will be your fellow trainees, and some invited members of the public. This class will be observed by your teacher. After class there will be time for feedback and review.

For an additional fee of $300 we can arrange a photographer to take pictures during your practicum class. This will then provide you with material to use on your resume, website, business cards and social media accounts.

You will be certified to teach Hatha Vinyasa Classes. You will be able to register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT- 200 member (Registered Yoga Teacher 200hr). Please note that your registration fee is not included in our rates.

If an illness, accident, or other covered unforeseen circumstance forces you to cancel or interrupt your travel plans, you face two potentially major financial losses—money invested in nonrefundable pre-payments and flights as well as medical expenses that in many instances may not be covered by health insurance. Travel insurance can be relatively inexpensive, especially when you consider how much you could lose if something goes wrong before or during your trip.
