Description

Bahamas Yoga Teacher Training

Danielle Mercer Yoga will prepare you to teach Yin and also take a mental health break for some rest and relaxation. In this society, people place a heavy emphasis on the “doing”. Because you have forgotten how to be still and cultivate mindfulness, you have become hyper-stressed individuals. In this course, you will explore ways to reverse the many years of damage you have done to your bodies, both physically and energetically.

Prepare to immerse yourself in Yin energy with international yoga teachers, Alexis Bethel, owner and founder of Studio Ohana Bahamas / E-RYT20 / RYT-500 and Danielle Mercer, international yoga trainer / E-RYT 200 / RYT-200 / YACEP. They will be guiding you through an exploration of meditation, mantra, stillness, yoga Nidra, and Yin. You will discuss key Yin principles and philosophy as well as the physical, energetic, and mind-bodies. You will also be discussing eastern versus western interpretations of yoga and the amazing health benefits of the practice.

You can expect a well-rounded experience, with each day filled with meditations, yoga, Yin training, and free time to self-practice or engage in island activities. This training is open to all levels of yogis. Whether you are someone who has an interest in teaching Yin or just someone who would like to deepen their own personal practice, this training is perfect for you!
