Training Outline


Apprenticeship: Module 1

Apprenticeship Module 1 follows the MAP: Embodiment Training and is limited to 30 participants. In Module 1, Trainees begin to understand the underlying principles and philosophy that support the Path of Azul, as well as receive individual attention on their embodiment. Trainees also begin training on on how to hold space for movement and create a playlist. This includes developing a music library, categorizing music and building a basic spiral.

Apprenticeship: Module 2

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 meaningful 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 to deepen your embodiment.

Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program offers an incredible container to support the integration of the Azul Spiral into life. Each Apprentice is assigned a Wisdom Partner to accompany them in their journey. All Wisdom Partners are Certified Azul Teachers engaged to assist the next generation of teachers.

In the weekly meetings Apprentices have the opportunity to offer a practice class and receive support and feedback. In the monthly mentoring calls they meet with Amara individually and as a group to facilitate their personal and professional understanding of the Path of Azul. The program also supports Apprentices who wish 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.
