About the Teacher Training.
This course will be Sampoorna Yoga’s only TTC outside of India, for the year of 2016. It will offer a standard 200h Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow program and structure, and will be fully facilitated by Sampoorna’s own teachers. It’s a one-off opportunity to experience and absorb Sampoorna’s style of teaching closer to home.
Granada is one of the pearls of Spain, visited by over 2.5mln tourists per year. The city boasts one of the most magnificently positioned palaces in the world – the world-famous Alhambra - as wondrous to behold from across the gorge, with the white peaks of Sierra Nevada glinting behind in the sun, as it is to examine close at hand, with its elaborate symbolic designs. The city has a fascinating history, which can still be seen today in Granada’s carmens and Arab baths. Mysterious walls hide lush gardens, charming narrow streets are filled with flowers, and the city is bustling with traditional taverns. Granada’s location between the mountains and the sea guarantees the rich and diverse cuisine.
