Be held in the process

The Teacher Training is a powerful container that, not only takes you through a deep personal transformation and teaches you how to create movement experiences, it also helps you to align with your highest purpose and service!

Is the Training for me?

The Training is designed for all those who wish to teach Azul classes and workshops and would like to build a local dance community.
The Training is also designed for movement teachers interested in expanding their horizons, for therapists who desire to incorporate movement into their practice, and for anyone interested in deepening their personal growth through the path of Azul.

How is it structured?

The Azul Teacher Training is articulated into two modules Apprenticeship and Certification which are each followed by an extensive mentoring program.

After each module trainees meet with Amara and Azul Faculty to receive support in integrating the Azul Spiral into their lives and bringing it to their community.

The Embodiment Training is a prerequisite to enter the Apprenticeship Module.

As a trainee you are also supported through the Azul Trilogy – a series of three retreats that guide you through a deep personal transformational process.

All Trilogy and Training modules are led by Amara Pagano and a team of Azul Faculty.

Training Outline

Apprenticeship Module

Apprenticeship Part One

Apprenticeship Part One follows the Embodiment Training and will be limited to 30 participants. In Part One trainees will take another step in understanding the underlying principles and philosophy that support the path of Azul as well as receive individual attention on embodiment. Trainees also receive training on how to hold space for movement and put together a playlist. This includes developing a music library, categorizing music and creating a basic spiral.

Apprenticeship Part Two

In this portion trainees receive the next layer of understanding and embodiment of the Azul Spiral and take another step in learning how to create movement experiences. There is more detailed attention given to individual embodiment and personal feedback from Amara. A significant amount of time will be devoted to the practice of “seeing” the body and Amara’s guidance as to where to focus to deepen embodiment.

Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program offers an incredible container to support the integration of the Azul Spiral into life. Each Apprentice is given a Wisdom Partner to accompany them in their journey. In the Weekly Meetings Apprentices have the opportunity to offer a practice class and receive support and feedback. In the Monthly Mentoring they meet with Amara individually and as a group to facilitate their personal and professional understanding of the Path of Azul. The program also support Apprentices to begin to offer holding space classes.

Azul Teachers share their experience

Catherine Taye Slattery, USA

It’s the most powerful training of any kind I’ve ever taken. Brilliantly organized, a lot of valuable content, delivered in such a way that it served my personal healing and embodiment while preparing me very well to teach.

Lucia Lacabana, Argentina

The experience of the training can only be described in uppercase words: INCREDIBLE, INTENSE, EXCITING, VIBRANT, DEEP, WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL. It has been a deep and intense journey into myself… Anyone who wants to find themselves, this is the place and practice. I can return to my community feeling alive, happy and confident.

Katja Hofmann, Australia

The Azul Teacher Training gave me hands-on tools I’ve experienced in my own body first. I experienced learning by dancing in a safe, supported and loving space and enjoyed being with an international group of like-minded people with big, open hearts.

Karen Holmes, PA, USA

The training was absolutely the best dancing and connection I’ve ever done…
Another part of the training is the use of technology and making playlists, working with the music itself. As a”non-techie” I learned SO much. Each person compiled a play list and offered a warm up session to the group. Everyone helped everyone else! The teacher training component gave us an excellent foundation to “go forth.

A mutual commitment and investment

The Teacher Training is a mutual commitment and investment. On your part, it includes fulfilling the requisites, attending the three Trilogy retreats and the Embodiment training and actively participating in the two Training Modules and Mentoring program.


On our part, it includes the ongoing support provided by the Azul Team and my personal investment in you and your education, learning, life and personal evolution. My intention is to mentor you in becoming an amazing facilitator and an inspiration for others
