Aruna Yoga Life Online Day Retreat

Aruna Academy

Aruna Academy Yoga Teacher Training

In the Aruna Academy you will train to become a 200-hour Yoga Alliance certified Aruna Yoga teacher. This program is for you if you are a serious student wanting to share the teachings of Aruna Yoga with others either in groups or individually as a registered yoga teacher. We are also in the process of registering for a 300-500 hour Yoga Alliance certification. 

The Aruna Academy Teacher Training will include:

In the Aruna Yoga Teacher Training program you will learn all about the tools of yoga, self-enquiry, healing and Kabbala (and many more). Through this practice you will deepen your connection to yourself, your body and your emotions. You will learn how to listen to the wisdom of the body and activate your own innate healing capacity. By releasing blocked emotions and stored tension and trauma, the program will guide you into becoming the highest version of yourself.

You will learn directly with Nicki Forman and receive her personal guidance plus additional mentorship by Aruna graduates. In addition to diving deep into your own personal process, you will learn to teach and share the tools of Aruna Yoga with others. Not interested in becoming a certified yoga teacher?
