MIAMI BEACH, Fla., March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- February was a great month for 2 lucky women who were awarded full scholarships to attend Dashama's 30-Day Yoga Teacher Training in Bali this summer. With the full tuition value awarded to each winner at $6,000, they both had plenty to celebrate.
"I wanted to do something to give back to my fans and followers who have supported me so much over the years, and what better way than to bring them with us for this journey of a lifetime experience?" said Dashama, founder of Pranashama Yoga Institute, Global 30 Day Yoga Challenge and Perfect 10 Lifestyle. Dashama is an innovator in the field of yoga, mind/body transformation and healing. After healing her own spine from several car accidents, she developed Pranashama Yoga and the Prasha Method. A creative dynamo in her field, Dashama is also a multi-media producer with videos, books and DVDs featured on Oprah.com, Walmart.com, Barnes&Noble.com, and Target.com.
"With all of the controversy about whether yoga is hurting people, whether it should be an Olympic sport and the yoga sex scandals that are making headline news, I want people to know there is much more depth and profound benefit that can be gleaned from the life-enhancing practices of yoga. And although sex scandals and ads featuring nude yoga poses tend to draw the most attention initially, I hope the true value of this ancient system will not be lost amidst the tabloids and fame hungry fans and critics of yoga. The truth is yoga can heal and transform your life, but not all yoga styles are created with this intention, nor do all teachers represent the depth and breadth of this system," she said.
Dashama also awarded 85 partial-tuition scholarships ($500 value) to each contestant who submitted an essay. Those who are attending the 30-day training will stay for 2 weeks in Ubud, Bali, the cultural center and location where Julia Robert's blockbuster movie "Eat Pray Love" was filmed. Immersed in the practice and study of Pranashama yoga, thai yoga healing therapy, Dashama's detox diet, green smoothie cleanse and meditation 6 days per week, each participant is in for a journey of a lifetime experience.
Guest expert, Dr. Ninu Quirk, will assess each participant both at the beginning and at the end of the 30 days as well as counseling them to get off prescription medications and eliminate environmental toxicity in their homes amongst other workshops.
During the last 2 weeks, the group will travel to the NW coast of Bali, across the ocean from Jakarta, on an exclusive snorkeling, diving and yoga resort property.
Soaking in the sulfur hot springs is said to eliminate toxins, alleviate muscle soreness, joint ailments and balance the metabolism encouraging weight loss, sleep improvement and a multitude of other health benefits.
The month culminates with Yoga Teacher Certification graduation awards ceremony and celebration on June 30, before the group bids their farewells.
"Each week we take an excursion to experience a unique aspect of the Balinese environment and culture, including temples, waterfalls, organic farms, snorkeling and even spending a day with orphans. Last year the orphan visit was everyone's favorite part of the entire trip. Not knowing they were deaf and mute, we were all blown away when they could hear for the first time in their lives when they heard the sound vibration of my Tibetan Singing bowl. It was completely life changing for us all," she said.
These live 30-Day Training Retreats are also the basis upon which Dashama's Reality TV show is being created. Her treatment brings together award-winning elements from "The Biggest Loser" and Tony Robbins' "Breakthrough" with a National Geographic travel element that has never been done before. The show can take place in a variety of locations and settings, bringing together people from around the world who are ready for a major breakthrough in their life.
"We've invited some friends from National Geographic to join us this year in Bali, so I will know by mid April if that is confirmed. I'd love to see this show aired on National Geographic TV or the Oprah Winfrey Network. Those are my top 2 choices right now," says Dashama.
Dashama leads 200- and 500-hour yoga teacher training transformational certification programs in Bali, UK and Miami Beach. For a limited time, she is waiving the fee and offering a Skype consultation to each applicant, during which time you will share your goals and dreams and work toward creating a roadmap for your success.
