Syllabus

HOURS + TOPICS

You'll explore the History of Yoga from its early roots in Shamanism; the various types of yoga as it evolved through the years, and both Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras (The 8-limbed Path, ‘Classical Yoga’) and its natural compliment, the Tantric tradition.

You'll examine and consider each of the major dimensions of the broader yogic traditions, all of the approaches to—and styles of—asana, from early Hatha to the modern day, as well as complementary indigenous wisdom systems from Native American to Buddhist practices and beyond.

Learn how to use Bandhas and Mudras to add stability, greater energetic flow and control, and depth to your practice. Also, explore various cleansing rituals (‘Kriyas’) and breathing techniques to clear the physical, mental and emotional body.

You will learn various meditation tools to develop your concentration and awareness (such as Chakra, Vipassana, and Metta meditations) the natural end result of an authentic, committed approach to practice. Learn how to sit comfortably in various meditation postures and learn how to share these essential skills and techniques with your students.

The foundations of physical and energetic anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology will be explored, with an emphasis on how these subjects directly relate to the practice of asana. The importance of proper alignment, modifications, and sequencing will be studied, in order to minimize risk, avoid injury, and enjoy greater efficiency and the higher dimensions of practice.

Strange bedfellows, art and commerce. You’ll learn how to navigate both the interpersonal dynamics involved in teaching yoga as well as the ‘yoga business’ all while staying in alignment with your own integrity and the ‘Higher Good’. We’ll also share with you myriad ways to begin establishing and marketing yourself as a yoga instructor.

Myriad special subjects, workshops, and events will be included amongst the ‘regular’ curriculum: Ayurveda, Nutrition, Pre-Natal, Yoga Activism, The Principals of Chinese Medicine, The Energetics of Yoga (The Dynamics of Touch and Adjusting), Swara Cycles, Teaching Methodology, and a few ‘surprise’ appearances by guest teachers.
