Course Overview - 

Combining Outer Ecology (Permaculture) with Inner Ecology (Yoga) ‘Permaculture’ is an integrated land use design methodology based on ecological principles, with practical application from sustainable household to eco-nation to global restoration. We combine this amazing course with an intimate introduction to a yogic lifestyle.

This course is the standard residential International Permaculture Design Certificate curriculum, taught in an integrated hands-on way, culminating in a comprehensive land-use design project. Yoga, deep relaxation, and meditation sessions will be woven into the daily schedule bringing you a __unique course__ combining inner ecology (yoga) with the outer ecology (Permaculture).

This 19-day course includes practical skill-building activities, mini-design exercises, and visits to inspirational properties that demonstrate Permaculture in practice. It takes place in an intentional eco yoga community and incorporates the exploration of ”Deep Ecology” (with Inna Alex), the connection to nature and element themed yoga practices aimed at enhancing personal sustainability that extends out into the wider community.

 Upon completion, a Permaculture Design Certificate will be issued by The Institute of Earthcare Education Aotearoa.
