300 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING YOGA ALLIANCE RYT 300® CERTIFICATION

We are currently designing our 300-hour teacher training for students who want to move into the spiritual depths of yoga. These will be held in resorts in India, the motherland of Yoga.  More information coming soon!

Immersive Format:

The immersive yoga teacher training a full exposure to the yogic lifestyle, giving you direct experience with all the aspects of yoga– food, philosophy, meditation, & asana. We have designed our trainings as all-inclusive to minimize the burden and effort for students. You’ll enjoy beautiful accommodations, 3 healthy meals a day from our private chef, daily classes in yoga asana, meditation, philosophy, anatomy & philosophy, and more.

SPECIFIC GOALS OF OUR TEACHER TRAINING:

1. LIFELONG INSPIRATION FOR PRACTICE

A daily, personal practice is the foundation for all growth on the path of yoga. Before learning to teach, students must develop this desire and discipline to maintain some form of daily practice. We focus on inspiring a deep love of yoga within students in the training so the daily practice becomes a love-affair rather than a forced discipline.

2. CONFIDENCE IN TEACHING

Part of the process of becoming a teacher it leaning into the initial fear of sharing. This is very common, and it should not remain a barrier to embarking on the path of teaching yoga. While we cannot guarantee every student a successful teaching career, we focus on empowering and building confidence for new teachers.

3. DEVELOPING A YOGIC LIFESTYLE

The ancient yogi’s developed specific lifestyle guidelines that influence the life in very subtle ways. We feel these are absolutely essential for students to adhere to, at least on a basic level. These include: avoiding meat consumption, avoiding drugs, and avoiding doing harm to others. While it’s not necessary to be perfect in all areas of the yogic lifestyle, we focus on inspiring students to adopt these principles of living to benefit their own life.

Meditation & Philosophy India

gurumukh singh

Meditation & Philosophy

At the age of 7 years, I was sent to a monastery by my parents where I lived for the next 12 years. During my study years in monastery, I learnt different philosophies about life by the ancient Indian sages. This pious learning at an early age laid a strong spiritual foundation in my nature. At the monastery, I also came to learn about ancient meditation techniques through my master. After my monastery education, I went to University and took my diploma in Computer Science and started a career as web designer. In 2008, after working in the IT industry for 5 years, I decided to quit and follow the path I knew I was born for.
I share my understanding in the teachings of Traditional Hatha Yoga, Philosophies, Pranayama, Meditations and various Cleansing Processes. I believe Yoga surely helps to stay relaxed in any degree of situational and emotional intensity. I like to teach and practice the traditional style of Hatha Yoga with Slow and Graceful movements of body and breath, between two postures. This way of Yoga Asana practice had been developed and suggested by ancient Mystics of India, as a helpful tool for humanity of all ages of time, for transforming all kinds of divisions created by human consciousness.

Yoga Asana

I was born and raised in Paraguay by a very executive, feminist, spiritual single mother and a simple, humble grandmother. Drawn by my child curiosity and the urge to express all my feelings my whole upbringing was a mix of outdoors adventures, trying all types of sports and experiencing art in dancing, acting and painting. I decided to let go of my whole “life plan” and went to live for 6 months in a Meditation Center in Uruguay. After studying for some semesters Interior Design and Advertisement, in 2013 I began teaching this meditation technique in jails, companies, orphanages, and to all types of people. My other passion is the entertainment industry. I became Miss Paraguay 2011-12 and got to travel around the world representing my country. I’m a model, a very healthy one now, and a TV host. Two years ago I moved to Los Angeles to study acting and become an actress.

Leadership & Lifestyle

I am a yogi & entreprenuer in Los Angeles, California. I've founded multiple successful technology companies in food and healthcare, but yoga is my real passion. In 2014 I traveled to northern India to do my yoga teacher training, where I met Gurumukh. He profoundly changed my life, and we decided together to start the East/West Yoga School to bring the teachings of enlightened masters to the world.

Contact me: adam@yogaeastwest.com

Our Philosophy:

Our philosophy is simple: yoga’s purpose is to enhance our direct experience with life. Thus it needs to be learned by experiencing it for yourself. While they are rooted in traditional yogic philosophy, our trainings tend to be less textbook heavy and more experiential. Why read about the purposes of meditation when you could feel them for yourself? We feel this approach is the true foundation for a world-class teacher. Our teacher trainings immerse students with these empowering experiences so they begin developing confidence sharing them with others.

“I met Gurumukh a few years ago when I completed my yoga teacher training in India. He has totally transformed my understanding of yoga and meditation and has led me down a path of discovery that I am still following now. He teaches with such love and compassion; never telling you what to believe but guiding you to reveal your own truth. His philosophy discussions are free and open, every voice has value and is welcomed with loving reassurance. In asana practice, I learned how to be still, silence the ego and focus deep within. He led me back to the pure fundamentals of alignment, pranayama and meditation which allowed me to transform my entire life. I cannot recommend Gurumukh enough; he is a truly inspirational teacher and a very treasured friend”

“There hasn’t been a day since my training that I haven’t thought of them full of gratitude and love!! I’ve been immersed in various global yoga communities (London, NYC, LA, Bali) and met countless yoga professionals and practitioners and time and again I realised how well I’ve been trained!  Their dedication to the authentic roots of yoga infused with modern knowledge of physiotherapy is heartfelt and makes sense. Deep is this extremely knowledgeable and passionate Asana teacher, whereas Gurumukh transmits spiritual/ philosophical knowledge. Both their approach is anchored in love, compassion and a joy for life, paired with that typical ‘accept everything the way it is and don’t forget to laugh’ attitude, that you so often find amongst wise Indian (modern day) sages. No spiritual ego whatsoever! I walked away from studying with them with a true understanding of what yoga is REALLY about (not some kind of fancy gymnastic for privileged people), and how it’s a lifestyle that shapes how you breathe, eat, relate to others and well, move. I knew this is now a part of my life that I will never want to be without again. And I felt confident to go back out there and share that knowledge with others, being able to structure yoga classes and teach people in a way that will either heal them or prevent them from hurting themselves with dodgy posture alignments that will go unadjusted with most yoga teachers.”

“It was really a once in a lifetime, unforgettable experience. Just the energy Deep and Gurumukh bring to class is amazing. I’m not a morning person but every morning they would walk into the studio and they bring this amazing aura to the room that really uplifts everybody and also could also sense what everybody needs in the room which is an amazing skill. The other things I enjoyed about the course is how Deep and Gurumukh guided us to live a meditative lifestyle so how to apply these ways of living and thinking and feeling to daily life. So, I’m really grateful to have met this amazing team!”

Lexi Traub, NY

“So…My experience with Gurumukh and Deep has been nothing short of profound and absolutely filled with love. I feel so blessed to have come across the training I did with them and fter studying with several different teachers around India & the world, I realize my standards are so high because of my experience with them that nobody else has really come close to. I am completing my 300-hour training in India right now, with teachers who are knowledgeable, but nowhere near as much as GuruMukh and Deep. They speak a language of love, which is what yoga truly is, the union of everything. Even if you are only interested in Asana, Deep still answers all of my technical questions a year and a half later. Gurumukh is one of the only people I know that is teaching yoga by living it, many teachers can read you the scriptures and define Sanskrit words, but to be able to take these teachings and use them in the present moment so students of any level can understand, with a profound sense of compassion, is really something special that I haven’t come across again in my yoga journey.”
