The Experience

Wake up! That’s the message of the Yoga Teacher. It’s a call to wake ourselves up first. As we do so, we increasingly live the magnificence that we are, see it in others, and guide them to realize it too.
The Radiantly Alive Yoga teacher training originated in Daniel Aaron’s life dedicated to yoga and awakening. Awareness of our incredible potential for happiness, and the knowledge that we are naturally encoded with everything we need to actualize it, has led Daniel Aaron on amazing journeys in the fields of health and consciousness. Yoga is an integral component of my explorations, and continues to delight me as vehicle for guiding others.In the training we experience the essence of Yoga through a unique and holistic synthesis of the best possible methods, harmonized through the timeless wisdom of ancient scripture and philosophy applied in a contemporary context. The revolutionary model of the Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training intensive benefits from today’s top teachers to illuminate a curriculum that is as thorough as it is diverse.Together we create the ultimate Yogic environment for learning and transformation: a community of like-minded individuals from around the world that supports one another in living our true potential.
Every component and detail is top caliber, including the expertise of the exceptional guest faculty, the natural beauty and heart of Bali, a healthy holistic lifestyle, and so much more.

The Radiantly Alive Yoga Teacher Training is suitable for any level of experience. Whether you are already teaching, about to begin or are newly acquainted with the benefits of yoga, waking up to who you really are not only frees you to live the life you always knew was possible, it also frees others – just by being you. Deepening your skills, understanding, confidence and presence in this foundational teacher training enables you to reach people more effectively through your authentic experience of yoga. It provides you with a comprehensive yoga education and meets the requirements for Yoga Alliance’s 200-hour certification. You will dive deeply into extraordinary living, yoga and teaching.

Drawing on my extensive yoga practice and training (with dozens of modern masters), you will dive deeply into a spectrum of today’s yogic styles. Discover how you share yoga by learning what’s come before you.

“Daniel is a caring and dedicated yogi who has experienced the fullness of the teachings and brings that fullness to all those with whom he shares.”
