This Training is immersed in the ancient spiritual, philosophical and meditative traditions of Yoga, while also maintaining a firm ground in modern alignment, sequencing, and approaches to practice.
This training progresses over 18 days by a map of the chakras, starting at the root and ending with the crown.
During the root segment, you will ground your intentions for teaching/practice, and learn the vast history of Yoga from the Vedas through the Upanishads, Buddhism, Yoga Sutras, Bhakti traditions, Tantric Lineages and contemporary Yoga Schools.
In the sacral chakra you will uncover the countless layers of the subtle body, learn the principles of Ayurveda, gain an overview of classical Tantra, and practice Yoga Nidra.
As you progress through the navel chakra you will explore Yoga's connection with power, fire, and introduce Lakshmi practice & the business of Yoga.
In addition to practice and study, you will participate in meditation, ceremony, council, and explore what these practices and teachings mean for ourselves as individuals, and for the community as a whole.
Each of the 18 days will also include a thorough overview in the anatomy/physiology of Yoga-Asana (postures), a comprehensive outlook on teaching methodology, an intensive dissection of major and minor poses, workshops on adjustments/alignment, and plenty of time for practice teaching.
For those looking to teach, this training will provide a vast, comprehensive tool-kit for teaching physical postures, breathing techniques, alignment, adjustments, as well as pranayama, mantra, meditation, and more.
For students looking to deepen their understanding, this will be a dynamic expansion of both knowledge and practice. A sincere exploration of what it means to truly practice YOGA.
