Mind Body Alchemy (in Italian)

20-27 August (40 CEUs)

Join Ameriga for a Yoga & Self-Development Teacher Training. This is not your typical yoga Teacher training, as it includes plenty of multi-style yoga practices, meditations, embodied rituals, and daily laboratories and satsang on self-development.  

During the week, besides from grasping some important concepts related to yoga and Eastern Philosophies, you will also learn about Western modalities of conscious relating, such as non-violent communication, NLP, and Mind Body therapy.  

This intensive course is a great immersion to the world of yoga and conscious living, and you will leave with practical tools to bring back into your daily life. 

An optional activity to join is rock-climbing around the stunning canyons of the Palermo region, while those who need relaxation can find plenty of it in our stunning ancient masseria.

Course program

The day will start at 8 AM with a pranayama or meditation session followed by a 2 hour Vinyasa Flow. Expect creative, slow, deep and intense sequences, leading to a peak pose, and garnished with Indian philosophy, psychology, immersive music and kirtan. Ameriga has a reputation for taking her students’ practice to the next level, so prepare to explore postures that you might have only seen in books, in a safe and functional way.

If you are a seasoned practitioner you will thoroughly enjoy the new challenges, and if you are new to yoga you will feel always included and supported in trying out new postures. 


In the evening we will meet again at 5 PM for a class/satsang during which we’ll explore yoga philosophy, buddhism, conscious communication, notions of Transactional Analysis, narrative coaching, NLP, and Mind Body therapy. 

At 6 we’ll go back to our mats for either a workshop on a family of posture (such as inversions, backbends, handstand, arm-balances and so on), a relaxing Yin Yoga session and meditation.
