Trainees also receive instructions 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 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 to deepen your embodiment.
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 Wisom Partners are Certified Azul Teachers engaged to assist the new generation of teachers.
In the weekly meetings Apprentices have the opportunity to offer a practice class and receive support and feedback.

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
