Join Ella Luckett in Nicaragua from April 19th to May 10th, 2017 for a 200 Hour Jai Yoga Teacher Training . You can learn to be a yoga teacher through Ella’s unique teaching style and join a class of Ella’s esteemed graduates that, on average, are more likely to become yoga teachers than those who go through other Yoga Teacher Training programs.
The Jai Yoga Teacher Training program stands out because of superior teaching technique, alignment, hands on adjustments, and mind-body connection. Jai also teaches yoga in tandem with personal growth and empowerment. You won’t just learn the yoga philosophy, you’ll embody it. Through sutras study and group discussion you’ll gain confidence in your understanding and expression of yoga principles.
What is a Jai yoga class like?
Jai vinyasa sequences are influenced by Astanga, JivaMukti, and Prana Vinyasa, and consist of a dynamic flow of movement and grace. Each class emphasizes the use of Ujjai breath, and meditative mind for a powerful physical practice and deeply restorative experience. Classes consist of a brief dharma discussion, Ohm, occasional chanting, sun salutes, and asanas paired with a dynamic flow of vinyasa in between the poses. The All Flow classes move at a medium pace, and the Easy Flow moves at a slower pace. Flow and Restore starts sweaty, and ends sweet. Verbal alignment cues, hands on adjustments, and inspired words relating to yoga philosophy make the Jai style a well rounded and blissful experience that feeds your mind, heart, and body.

Beyond the mat, the Jai system of yoga distinguishes itself with its emphasis on “satsang,” which in sanskrit means “good company.” We know that the results of the practice are only measured by the increase in happy, authentic, productive, fun, and loving relationships in our lives. Therefore, Jai students establish deep friendships with their classmates and report increased wellness in the relationships outside of our studio, or retreat centers, from work to home life. That’s the Jai difference.
