Meditation Teacher Training | Venice, CA
Monday, September 10, 2018 - Friday, September 14, 2018
Meditation (dhyana) is the key to unlock life’s fullest potential. Unfortunately, many yoga teachers graduate their initial 200hr. Teacher Trainings feeling ill-equipped to teach meditation and end up “winging it”.
This module provides you everything you need to deliver high-quality meditation and mindfulness trainings rooted in evidence-based research, high-performance methodologies, ancient wisdom traditions and practical psychological skills.
Teach your students or clients how to master the mind, overcome difficult emotions, work with sensation, the body and pain, deepen their spirituality and identify with their true nature.
Learn to easily adapt practices to fit your students’ needs and facilitate meditation workshops, courses or apply in coaching/therapy sessions.
