200 Hr Yoga Alliance Teacher Training. The Art, Science & Celebration of Yoga with Julia McCabe
Teacher: Julia McCabe
$3900 USD – This rate includes shared accommodation (first 12 students will be in a petite suite with one other, the following 8 will be in a shared palapa, this is based on availability, the sooner you book, the better!) three healthy meals a day (dietary requests in advance), taxes, airport pick-up and drop off/boat transport and 200Hr Yoga Alliance Certification. * Note: this rate may increase due to available rooms. Later bookings may have to book into the pricier suites.
This is a 200-hour Yoga Alliance immersion for prospective teachers or students interested in digging deeper. For 21 days, we will eat, sleep, breathe and learn beneath the tapestry of yoga-s ancient teachings in the remote setting of Xinalani. We will begin together every morning on the mat and move through a challenging core based vinyasa practice. It will be an infusion of my own style with the unique qualities of my previous teachers in the Anusara and Ashtanga traditions. We will also sink deep into daily pranayama, meditation, mantra/chanting, history, philosophy, assigned readings, subtle anatomy (chakras, nadis, etc./mind-body connection), anatomy (visiting teaching) and teaching methodology. It is my pledge to impart as much knowledge as I possibly can in order to expand your repertoire as both a yogi and creative being. Being an advanced practitioner is not a prerequisite to this program, however arriving with an open mind and a good sense of humor is key! You will be challenged and pushed to your healthy edge – in order to see how vast your potential as a teacher/student/creator actually is.

About the Teacher
I have been teaching and practicing yoga since 2001, with my beginnings at Neoalpine Y-Yoga in Whistler, B.C, Canada. Between 2005-2008, I had the opportunity to teach at Pure Yoga, Hong Kong with a mind-blowing faculty of big spirited bohemians and teachers. I also had the opportunity to assist and teach with renegade yogi, Patrick Creelman (Anusara certified).
In 2003, I studied in Thailand with Paul Dallaghan, authorized Ashtangi who guided us through Pattabis Jois method of Hatha Yoga and traditional yogic studies, as well as Sri Tiwari Ji – our kind grandfather, pranayama master and teacher of teachers. My other influences include my mom, dad and sister – all school teachers and some of the best, Paige Faraci who took me under her graceful wing in Asia, Ana Forrest, Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Carlos Pomeda, John Friend and many others in the Vancouver community. It is difficult for me to pledge my devotion to only one school as there are so many that I respect and continue to learn from. The bigger the palette, the more colors to choose from, is my theory.
I am currently living in Whistler, BC, teaching at YYoga/Neoalpine and Whistler-s Core. I am holding workshops and teacher trainings year round. I am also deep in the throes of writing a book about my experiences living and teaching in Asia.
