ISHTA 200-Hour TT in Havana, Cuba

June 1st – 28th, 2018 

Beyond Om Ishta Teacher Training

After teaching in yoga trainings all over the United States, April is extremely honored and so excited to bring you this special opportunity – the first Beyond OM Ishta 200 hour destination training… in Cuba at Mhai Yoga! It is sure to be a transforming and unique experience! Mhai Yoga is an extremely special place, and April could not be more thrilled to be able to bring you this opportunity. Whether you want to teach or deepen your practice, this is going to be an amazing format that will offer more than just the (185) Yoga Alliance contact hours.

Since the announcement rolling back policies in travel to Cuba April worked with Mhai Yoga and Cuba Candela, a licensed tour company to Cuba, to make sure this training happens, and to ensure the group is following new policy. They both worked many hours on this with April to make this happen so the group runs the same 200 hour training while complying with new policy. You will be sure to have an authentic cultural experience with Cuban people including Cuban yoga students and teachers!

*This yoga training workshop which is open for attendance by the Cuban public, and participation by the Cuban people with the group will be facilitated.

What this training will offer and why it is unique

ISHTA Teacher Training
This training will be grounded in the Yoga Alliance approved and esteemed Ishta yoga teacher training. The Ishta Teacher Training program provides a comprehensive foundation for all aspects of yoga: a uniquely modern, individualized, and integrated approach to this ancient science. Ishta is a Tantric school rooted in lineage and tradition that offers us ways to bring inspiration into our every day modern life. We will be using the ISHTA 200 TRAINING MANUAL – which is such an invaluable resource people ask how to purchase it. (You can only acquire it through the training.) It is the training April completed, and the techniques to which April returns on a daily basis for her own practice and teaching. As Senior Ishta Teacher April is honored to be able to offer this.
