These Teacher Trainings are Heart Centered Gatherings.
Certification is by 'Rise Spirit Soul; School of Spiritual Teachings & Practices'
These gatherings/programs are open to all. It is not required that you be on the path of certification to attend these teachings. Each gathering is a healing heart journey with soul groups always coming together.
If you require a more known certification or require that initial 200 Hour certification (the only typically requested certification) due to requirement for a teaching placement at a yoga studio etc you can pay an additional fee of:
€100 for the 4 day trainings
€200 for the longer trainings
and you will be registered with either 'Yoga Alliance International India' or 'Meditation Alliance International' both of whom Rise Spirit Soul is a registered Yoga and Meditation School with.
Full Pricings listed on each individual page.
There is no 'correct path' to becoming a Yoga and Meditation Teacher. In fact I have questioned as to whether a yoga certification is even necessary. To put it into perspective, did any of the great gurus, sages and avatars get certified and insured!? A Teacher of any kind is a calling and I believe guiding you to tap into that inner knowing, inner wisdom is what is of the utmost importance.
Saying that I am aware we are living in this current time and place and so requiring liability insurance is standard when working freelance for yoga studios or when hiring your own space. This is one reason where certification is required, the other reason I feel is; this journey is simply a very special achievement, and on these trainings, an attunement to higher state of consciousness, so it is nice to acknowledge and honour that.
Each training/program is of a different Vibrational Energy Frequency, therefore, depending on your stage on your Spiritual Path one may be more benefit to you than another at a particular time. If you are unsure drop an email to arrange a mutual time for a chat. Typically I will say if you're strongly drawn to one, that's the one for you. Our Soul always leads us to places/people for a reason and you simply already 'know'.
Amount of 'hours' are not of the utmost importance, these trainings are set to cover all that needs to be energetically covered in the time it takes to cover them.
For in-house days; exact start time will be given and latest finishing time, therefore I thank you for keeping yourself available for this duration. In saying that I run in line with both the days energy and the overall group energy (or your individual energy if it is One to One) as to what time we will finish each day (keeping in mind the latest finish time, on group trainings, is as shown).
Full training must be completed to receive certification, unless under special circumstances agreed in advance. There is no 'exam', this is a Spiritual right brain journey. There is plenty of sharing and support. On the longer group trainings (not the 4 day group trainings) and all the one to one trainings, you will create and guide your own class, whether that's in the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, Yin Yoga Teacher Training, or Meditation Teacher Training, with full guidance and support along the way.
If days are missed due to unforeseen circumstances I will do my best to assist. If additional guidance, mentoring, or space on the next same training is needed it will be at an additional fair fee if space is available and time permits.

"A teacher that teaches from the heart both on and off the mat. I completed my 200hr teacher training with Ashling of Rise Spirit Soul in July 2017. Having practiced with Ashling in different capacities since i began my yoga journey, she has been a wonderful guide and friend. Ashling's training has been a period of transformation in my life and travelling to India with the group for training was profound in every way. Ashling nurtures each and every student to bring who they are to their yoga mat, respecting themselves and the students they teach always. As the group was small everyone became great friends and made connections that will last a lifetime. I cannot thank Ashling enough for everything she has taught me and continues to teach me on my yoga journey. If you are looking for a teacher training that enhances your practice, being and life this is the one you have been looking for."
