Three residential weeks in the French Alps
An uplifting learning experience to help you understand how yoga can open up your life. Immersion in nature, community living, yogic lifestyle and an international context provide an environment to come out of ordinary living. You will directly experience the transformative power and essence of the teachings. Develop your intuition, your discipline and capacity to serve. Allow your uniqueness to emerge. Create a direct relationship with your own development.
The Amrit Nam Sarovar Kundalini Awakening Teacher Training level 1 Outreach, or ‘Outreach’ for short, takes place in the middle of nature, in the French Alps. It is led by an international team of Teacher Trainers under the guidance of school director and founder Karta Singh Khalsa. The course is in English with translation into French, German and possibly other languages. The Outreach training takes place in three separate ashram immersion weeks over the course of six months. During the training everyone will be assigned into a mentoring group that oversees the continuity of the process. At the end of the training there will be an exam.
Amrit Nam Sarovar cultivates an attitude of permanent learning and offers a process to qualify your own development through a multi-level mentoring system. Therefore, the Outreach also serves as the training ground of the school and its trainers. It is the place where we share the teachings from a common source of inspiration through a variety of teaching styles and approaches, drawing upon a vast repository of experience.
In the first and last week of the training we will meet with the Outreach group only, while in the second week, in the summer, we meet with all the local level 1 groups together at Le Martinet, the mother ashram of the school. In this unique immersive week you will learn together in an international group. It will strenghthen your connection, to others as well as to your own true self.
