Training with Nevertire Yoga will gift you with a unique opportunity to embody the ethos and ethics of traditional Yoga.
Our training covers all the requirements of 200 hour registration with Yoga Alliance, USA, the peak world yoga organisation, but that is merely the base line.
You will also learn to develop your own daily practice to live your yoga throughout each day, not merely on the mat an introduction to ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, and how to embed and embrace this knowledge into your daily lifestyle exploration of the spiritual aspects of yoga, including chanting, mantra and yantra
The strength of our training lies in Our ETHOS Our morals and values are those of a yogi; as well as that of a Registered Yoga School. We are not churning out yoga instructors, but developing intuitive and passionate yogis who teach from the heart and by example in daily living. Yoga is a way of life, which when practiced, gives all round benefits.
Our LOGIC We teach medically sound yoga with a focus on motion within the functional range of movement. Each yoga journey is a personal one of getting to know yourself. "Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom... If you realise that you are enough, you are truly rich." (The Tao) "When the mind free of thought turns inward, True, Grace is needed; Love is added. Bliss wells up." (Atma Vidya) Our meditation practices are centred on mindfulness. This style of meditation is immediately accessible to all. If you can breath, you can meditate.
We are here to support and nurture our students every step of the path to becoming a registered yoga teacher. We encourage each student to commit to a minimum of twenty hours of loving service to others as a way to begin to know themself. As a group, each training cohort is financially assisting others in need for their daily living. This 2020 training will support Stepping Out, Siem Reap, Cambodia.More Here! Providing the opportunity to travel arises, our Intensive will take place in Siem Reap, and you will have the opportunity to visit Stepping Out and to personally help by whatever means you can. Tuition and accommodation in Siem Reap are fully covered in your training fees. More on Siem Reap coming soon. If we are not in a position to travel, the Intensive will be closer to home, and is fully covered in your tuition fees, but our support will still go to Stepping Out.
"Your work is your responsibility, not its result. Never let the fruits of your actions be your motive. Nor give in to inaction. Set firmly in yourself, do your work, not attached to anything. Remain evenminded in success, and in failure. Evenmindedness is true yoga." --Bhagavad Gita, 2.47-49
