500-hour Teacher Training with Fabio Fabbri and Natalia Perera, starting July 2018

Saffron Rose's Journeys Into Yoga Teacher Training presents a unique offering amongst the ubiquitous teacher training programs currently advertised.

Instead of the more usual 'linear' approach to learning, with separation of the course content into various modules (in particular the Ayurvedic and Spiritual Psychology content which is often an 'add on' if there at all), Journeys Into Yoga immerses the student, quite literally, in both an inner and outer experiential journey, with the teaching content rules by the Five Vedic Elements. 

This program has evolved and emerged from the desire of two very respected, much loved and experienced practitioners wanting to provide an immersive style of teacher training over 500 hours with a strong emphasis on the quality and depth of the content being delivered through an experience that is enriching for the students themselves.

Saffron Rose's Fabio Fabbri - a senior Yoga Alliance recognised teacher is the lead trainer and inspiration behind the course, along with Saffron Rose's owner, his life and business partner Natalia Perera, who brings to the course her skills from her 20 years of psychotherapy, Ayurvedic studies and clinical experience, her vast and varied years of practice with and teaching different styles of meditation as well as her applied knowledge of shamanic and spiritual healing.

Both, in their own unique ways, practice using nature as their source of inspiration. Both have taught on Australian-based Yoga Teacher Training programs including Nature Care College, Sukha Mukha Yoga and A Fine Balance. 

 

"Simplified, everything in the manifested realm can be returned to the level of the Vedic Five Elements (or Pancha Maha Bhutas; Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether) which are the key foundations of Ayurvedic and Yogic understanding. The intention here is that the elements become synergistic with the learning experience, the course content and the students' personal evolution are effectively 'ruled' by the element."

Fabio Fabbri
