the conquering lion yoga teacher training program 2011/nyc:
why just stretch when you can save the world?
march term added!
the conquering lion teacher-training program teaches that the true purpose of "yoga" is to reach enlightenment for the sake of every living being as outlined in the traditional yogic texts. it is the first teacher-training program to successfully unite two sacred systems that have been torn apart by 2,500 years of war, politics, and invasions, but were once one: the Indian tradition of Vinyasa, and the tibetan buddhist principle paths that link directly to his holiness the dalai lama and the buddha himself. if you have even the slightest inclination that there's more to yoga than toned arms and a strong core, come learn the wisdom and experience the power born from the combined forces of these two holy ideologies.
the program has a world-renowned faculty, and you will have your own personal cly graduate mentor to support you. meets 2 weekends a month (excluding august), saturdays and sundays from 2 to 6 pm, for 6 months. yoga-alliance registered.
open to everyone interested in changing themselves and their world, quickly: aspiring teachers, established teachers looking to fine-tune and people who simply want to deepen their understanding and application of the teachings. only 10 students are accepted in order to ensure quality and that each trainee receives the support they need to succeed.
founder and director of the conquering lion program, kelly morris is a lineage holder in the gelupka tradition of his holiness the dalai lama. featured numerous times in the new york times, new york magazine, and yoga journal as one of nyc's most influential, sought-after teachers, kelly is well-known for her honesty, warmth and singular ability to make advanced understanding of both asana and yoga philosophy easy for her beloved students.
