Guru Parampara: Transmission and Lineage

Guru Parampara – Transmission and Lineage is the culmination of the ParaYoga® Master Training. It is an intensive and transformative training focused on growing your power and authority as a teacher and awakening the lineage of the Himalayan sages. Its primary aim is to ensure that ParaYogis have a clear understanding and capacity to apply all ParaYoga® practices and techniques in both group and individual class settings. This dynamic, intensive, and transforming course goes beyond theory and provides an opportunity for true understanding and application.

In addition to a series of wide-ranging lectures, the training will also include case studies, opportunities to review participants’ teaching skills that include practice teaching as well as group and individual presentations.  Throughout the training our emphasis is on guiding teachers to refine their skill and capacity, both as teachers and advanced practitioners.  Participation requires you to have completed at least 6 ParaYoga® Master Trainings; of these 6, Vinyasa Krama and Koshas are required.
