WHAT PREVIOUS STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"The Practice’s teacher training is by far the most superior of all the trainings I've taken. The Practice team teaches with such knowledge, insight and devotion that it’s quite unbelievable. By far the best training I’ve done. After several trainings for the first time the whole science of Yoga landed."
"Wow, what an experience! This training is perfect for anyone wanting to explore what real Yoga is all about. The training is invaluable. Octavio is incredible, he embodies the Tantric Hatha tradition with such wisdom and grace. My mind has been blown."
"For those serious about walking and living the path of Yoga, this training is a brilliant stepping stone towards Self-mastery. As a teacher and always a student, these teachings have helped me to fill in many gaps and have heightened my understanding of the potential available through Yoga. This rich training and the support you will receive are second to none. Octavio and his team are incredibly dedicated to helping you uncover your excellence"
If you want to achieve Self-excellence,
then mastering your mind and energy is NON-NEGOTIABLE.
This is what genuine Hatha Yoga practice provides.
It is time for Emma and myself to re-join the amazing Practice teaching squad and get back to doing what we love to do; what we were BORN to do, which is share these life-changing teachings with the full force of our Souls. We made a commitment to our community in 2021 that we would not teach in-person trainings until the local Government lifted their ban on unvaccinated travelers. We honored that commitment, just as we honor ALL of our commitments, because that is what showing up in the world as a Yogi and as a Yogini is about. It’s like Malcom X said:
“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”
Yoga, when practiced correctly is the direct pathway to living a righteous, Soul-aligned and fearless existence, as God intended us to live. The issue is that 99% of the Yoga being taught today does not align to the traditional science. Innovation has usurped time-tested methods which is why the modern Yoga world is so full of followers and not nearly enough LEADERS.
The Practice builds Leaders. That is what we do, and we do it really fucking well. The reason we succeed where others fail, is because we stick to the original science which has been stoking the inner fire in the hearts of Men and Women since time immemorial. These practice work. We know they work! Emma and I owe our lives and our love to these practices. Our marriage is forged and re-forged daily by these practices. Our abundance, our adventures, our laughter and joy flows from these practices and our ‘give zero fucks about the opinions of others’ attitudes are 100% a direct manifestation of these practices. Trust us, THEY WORK! Ask the rest of The Practice’s teaching squad and they’ll tell you EXACTLY the same thing. Without a doubt, they will work for you too.
The Yoga world needs LEADERS now more than ever. It needs Men and Women who cannot be corrupted or swayed by fancy moves and creative flows. It needs Men and Women who burn for the Tradition and will fight for its legacy, regardless of the consequences. That’s who we’re calling in for this training.
Our world-renowned, internationally celebrated teacher training and mentorship program will provide you with the exact methodologies and mindset to reclaim your power, master your inner world and give you the tools to thrive and hold yourself steady and aligned in the outer world. This life-changing program will not only plug you straight into the heart of the ancient Yoga tradition, but also into a strong, like-minded community of passionate, diehard and truly inspirational practitioners and teachers who are committed to living a life of integrity while simultaneously keeping the authentic flame of true Yoga burning brightly.
NOW THESE TEACHINGS HAVE COME TO YOU.
Our new YTT format involves 4 weeks of intensive study here in Bali (Monday to Friday) and concludes with 40 Days of self-practice and 1 on 1 mentoring at home. More time to study, more time to practice, more time to connect, more time to integrate this vast ocean of ancient wisdom and knowledge and make it your own.
- 100% of the content covered in this training has been passed down through the ancient practice of Parampara (from teacher to student). We are not innovators. We simply have a single-pointed burning desire to deliver the teachings of the sages as they were intended: undiluted.
- 100% of the content of this training has been fully integrated by the teachers delivering it, through intensive self-practice over years and decades of commitment to this path. If we haven’t embodied it, then we won’t teach it. This is our commitment to you, to the tradition and to ourselves.
TANTRA: THE SCIENCE OF SELF-EMPOWERMENT
- Learn the truth about what Tantra is and what it isn’t.
- Discover how to use its powerful and precise methods to strengthen, heal and empower all aspects of your life and amplify the potency of your practice.
- We will extensively cover how to practice and teach key Tantric methods including ASANA, PRANAYAMA, BANDHA, MUDRA and KRIYA MEDITATION.
- Collectively, these powerful methods are a way of shaping body, energy and mind with the dual-goals of mastering your human life and accessing the deep states of MEDITATION that exist beyond it.
YOGA: THE CULTIVATION OF SELF-KNOWLEDGE
- Meditation is at the core of the entire practice of Yoga. Here you will learn not only the skills to practice and teach it, but how to LOVE it. This is the real key to meditative success and ultimately, success in Yoga.
- Using the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali as the context, learn time-tested methods for calming reactivity, cultivating single-pointedness of mind, increasing memory power, strengthening the connection to your inner teacher and ultimately accessing that part of yourself that rests eternally in stillness beyond the mind.
MANTRA: THE SCIENCE OF SACRED SOUND
- Learn how to apply Mantra within the scope of Asana practice, devotional practice (Bhakti) and most importantly, Mantra Japa Meditation practice.
- Study the fundamentals of Sanskrit.
- Discover the secret connection between Sanskrit and the subtle body and how to use it to access states of higher consciousness.
- Mantra is considered the supreme object of mediation from the perspective of Tantra, Yoga, Buddhism and many more traditions. There is an exact science to Mantra. It is MUCH more than just a tool to focus the mind. Learn how to practice it as the sages have done since time immemorial. Without Mantra, there is no Yoga.
VINYASA KRAMA: ADVANCED SEQUENCING
- Learn the science of sequencing; how to sequence powerful, integrated and safe classes for yourself and a wide array of students based on an intimate understanding of the energetic impact of Asana as well as the bio-mechanical component of Asana.
- Learn how to work with the six key pose categories of Hatha Yoga (Forward folds, Twists, Laterals, Backbends, Spinal Extensions and Inversions) to precisely impact the Prana Vayus, Doshas, Gunas, Nadis, the nervous system and ultimately the mind.
- Discover the relationship between Posture, Prana and Kundalini.
- Using posture clinics and pose breakdown sessions you will learn correct alignment and modifications, plus preparation and countering strategies for all major Asanas from the Hatha Yoga tradition.
- This module includes teaching strategies for specialized needs such as anxiety, depression, adrenal fatigue, low energy, or on the other end of the spectrum, the gift of pregnancy.
- Develop professional skills to give simple yet very effective verbal alignment cues, plus learn hands on and vocal adjustments techniques and vocal/language tools for maximizing your efficiency and potency as a teacher.
AYURVEDA: THE SCIENCE OF LIFE
- Study the key principles of Ayurveda within the context of both life and practice and learn how to take full responsibility for your own life based on the informed choices you make.
YANTRA YOGA: THE SCIENCE OF THE CHAKRAS
- Study the ancient map of the Chakras and learn how they relate to Sadhana (Practice) and Dharma (Spiritual purpose in life).
- Study the relationship between Yantra (Geometry) and Mantra (Vibration) within the context of contemplation and Meditation.
PHILOSOPHY: STUDYING SACRED TEXTS
- To truly understand any Yogic text, we need four things: The correct translation of the text, the key commentary of the text, an unbroken lineage that holds the secret teachings hidden within the text and finally, a committed daily self-practice. Here you will find all four.
- Throughout this course we will cover and practice the teachings from the Yoga Sutra, the Bhagavad Gita, the Upanishads and other key Tantric scriptures.
TANTRIC ANATOMY: MEETING GROUND OF THE HUMAN AND THE DIVINE
- Study the key areas of the physical body that act as gateways to higher spiritual experiences, including the navel, the spine, the heart and the brain. Study the body as a sacred alter and the perfect vehicle for reaching the heights of human potential.
ETHICS: HOLDING THE SEAT OF THE TEACHER
- Learn what it truly means to hold the position of the teacher.
- Learn the importance of self-accountability, unshakeable boundaries, humility and discipline as it relates to teaching and honoring this path.
- Challenge yourself to be the perfect student, because that is how you become the greatest teacher and the highest version of yourself.
