This 200-Hour Teachers Training offers a comprehensive in-depth study of Yoga and Ayurvedic theory for aspiring students and seasoned teachers looking to gain proficient and tangible knowledge in the foundational subtleties of practice through an advanced exploration of asana, pranayama and meditation techniques. The foundation of this program will be rooted in understanding and developing approaches to a safe and sustainable self-practice that once mastered will be naturally and easefully shared with future students as the practitioner blossoms beyond the personal stages of self-transformation into knowledgeable guides who hold space for others to realize their own inner evolutionary potential. This approach leads to confidence and accountability in self-development for the aspiring or seasoned yogin, maintaining the bedrock of the yogic approach to life, as well as nurturing the profound love and appreciation for the pursuit of self-knowledge through selfless service and unconditional love, from one’s interior terrain branching outward into our relationships with the world and interaction with the Nature of others and Life itself.
Yoga is a path of self-mastery; a science and art of truly understanding what lies between each layer of creation (mayakosha) through the process of directly experiencing and observing (dhyana) the channels of energy (nadis) composing and transforming (tamas and rajas) the outer layers of the essential fundament sustaining our being (atman). Yoga is a direct path of knowledge (jnana), culminating in the vasts yet certain realizations of the Self (samadhi) as our collective heritage (Prakriti) and birth right (Purusha).
Throughout this training, together we will hold space for the realization of yoga (satsang). We will move through each layer of the Self (mayakosha) from the microcosm to the macrocosm so that we may confidently connect with the essence of yogic knowledge (satchitananda), harnessing the inner energy of our Creation (kundalini), abiding in a state of Yoga as a lifestyle (sadhana) and a rite of passsage sustaining our mutual heritage (Prakriti) as transcribed by ancient rishis (mahasiddhas) around the world.
