Your time will be divided into the following:
This course respects the standards and subject matter geared towards the main educational categories as laid out by the Canadian Yoga Alliance and the lifelong studies of ne Yoga Academy. Topics are (yet not limited to) the following:
Techniques & Practice – This is an exploration behind the practices. Discovering the roots of techniques and various methods employed by the various schools. An in-depth perspective on the origins of modern yoga and how all yogas lead to an original source. What is that source and why is it relevant today? How can a student of modern yoga stay intimately connected to the lineage while simultaneously using a palette of techniques?
Teaching Methodology. What does it mean to teach? Who am I? Who is the other? What does “teaching” yoga actually mean? What aspects are we trying to impart? How can we effectively transmit this core idea through a 90-minute class? How to put together a unique class and workshop with a unique take home message? How to preserve the essence of yoga in all of your choices?
Anatomy and Physiology - The basis of our anatomical understanding will come from our Coultier book. You will be given a general overview of basic body mechanics while remaining aware of the more subtle bodies and how they interplay with the outer more physical level.
Yoga of Sound, Mantra.
Rituals. What is a ritual? How is it an effective method of transmuting your space, energy and physicality? How to practice and create your own personal rituals?
Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers.
Practicum (Teaching Practice)
Art of Adjustment. Who is adjusting and why? These initial reflective questions are a necessary component prior to being able to adjust in an effective life blossoming manner. Understanding energy lines, the direction of flow, moving principles as well and as pets of touch are important components to this idea. An adjustment is based upon which factors since all physical capacities vary. How to chose which parts of the body can be eased and which parts should be left. Using th breath as a portal, understanding the effects of a posture is crucial to these on the spot decisions needed for a teacher as well as for your own personal practice. In order to be able to receive or allow the maximum benefit of each posture, we must be familiar with the interplay of the subtle and the physical body as well as the technology inherent in each asana.
Art of Observation. Having a deep understanding of the effects of a posture and the loops, lines and direction of energy flow within a certain asana, as well as a general sense of the interconnectedness between the mind and body allows you to make effective and corrective observations. Once an observation is made, how then do we act and why. Which tips will allow for a better embodiment of the asana and which tips will bring someone away from the essence of yoga.
The Body as a vehicle for divine expression through asana.
Tantra and Vedanta Philosophy in depth and directly related to your life now
The Art of Meditation. What is meditation? Why would anyone want to practice it? What are its benefits and what is its basic method? What is the result of a practice of meditation and what are some of the forms which have offered success timelessly? How to make this a part of everyday living in a non rigid fashion.
How to establish a long term effective Sadhana.
The Art of Alignment.
How to be your own best Teacher. The Inner Guru Discovery.
