YTT BY MOMENTOM
Momentom is a collective of acrobats, yogis and circus artists from all over the world. The mission is to incorporate the mindfulness of yoga with the self-expression of circus arts.
Momentom has developed a YTT that is unique in that it provides artists from multidisciplinary background an understanding on how to incorporate yogic mindfulness and philosophy into their existing practice and arts. The YTT provides a curriculum that underlines philosophical understanding of Hatha Yoga, postural alignment and techniques of present moment awareness. Momentom’s immersive style includes 9.5 hours of training per day for 21 days (with one day off per week).
The YTT is separated into practical teaching experience which maximizes hands-on learning, direct feedback for the trainees. To equip students with the tools and skills to kick start their new yoga career, the curriculum also provides an overview of how to run a business and have a career as a yoga teacher or artist. Momentom Collective provides an additional ‘branding package’ that allows students the opportunity to invest in developing their personal website and business cards as to be ready to start business right away.
The YTT takes place at the Carpe Diem Eco Lodge, Isla de Los Brasiles, Northern Nicaragua, 20 minuts from Leon.
The Project: Carpe Diem is an eco-hotel and sustainable building school designed by architect and visionary Ghislain Beauchamp. The land boasts cob casitas, 30 pax yoga studio with 4 aerial rigs, a vegetarian restaurant, a chill aera, a volleyball court, fire pit on the beach. The main buildings made of cob, made of straw, water, earth, sand and clay- built by 400 volunteers, the fabric of the building is made of love and hard work.
The Experience: A deserted island with the stars as brilliant as you’ve ever witnessed them in your entire life. 20 km of sandy beaches and the sound of the waves part of your daily reality. Momentom joins forces with Carpe Diem to provide a utopian environment for self-transformation, introspection and connection to self and nature. The idea is to find complete grounding, isolation and space to absorb all new knowledge and provide an environment for purposeful conversation.
