The course is, above all, a deepening of Hatha yoga and Radja Yoga. We could have it called a "training course", because it is, as it is also studied pedagogy and course trains to teach Hatha yoga with rigor and security in the future. But for us the important thing is to be one deep dive and advanced and practical in the science of classical Yoga.

This course is aimed at people who take more than two or three years of practice and regular study of yoga. It will be during the second half of the course when you first start to addressing pedagogy to be able to respond to that momentum of the shadaka that, after having integrated the teachings and yogic methods, you want to share the benefits of these with other people.

Go first thing learn and integrate, practise and deepen. And then learn how to teach others. But the latter is always a correlative something that arrives after; If one runs not through own road, It is impossible that you can pass anything on to others.

School: Padmasana Center

Padmasana Center It opened its doors nearly a decade ago, to devote himself entirely to the dissemination of yoga and ayurveda, without distortions or dogmatism, in order to help all humans wishing to do so, any that are their motivations, to improve physically, mentally and spiritually through his legacy of techniques and knowledge.

About me, Violet Arribas, I can say that I was formed as a Professor of psycho-physical (Hatha Yoga) yoga and mental yoga (Radja Yoga) by Ramiro Calle, something that has only done in 50 years with less than a dozen people. Then I followed a year in India receiving courses with different masters, ashrams and Yoga schools, although never stops learning, that I returned on 15 occasions, and which remain...

Padmasana also has the recognition of one of the institutions of traditional Indian yoga, located in Rsihikesh (the world capital of yoga), the International Vishwaguru Yoga and Meditation Institute Ved Niketam Dham Ashram.

The Ved Niketan Dham, through their spiritual leader Swami Dharmananda, My teacher and friend, unconditionally supports training in Padmasana and along with Center signature the final diploma.
