This intensive teacher training course is designed to enhance your skills at teaching a well-balanced Yin and Vinyasa style yoga for beginning and intermediate students incorporating safe and appropriate hands-on assists. Shala will help to inspire or re-inspire you in your role as yoga teacher with the knowledge and open-heartedness it takes to teach a safe and creatively sequenced yoga class. Students looking to become teachers, students who are currently teachers with or without previous training, or students with the desire to deepen their practice and spend five whole days with Shala will find this course inspiring and practical. This training isn’t just for teachers, but also for serious students who want to immerse themselves totally with an inspiring community and invigorating practices.
In this immersion you will learn specific techniques that will help you slow down, enter a state of deep stillness, and cultivate a continued awareness of that stillness into the flowing motion of asana practice and life: Stillness in Motion.
Participants will be invited to remember, reflect, and rejuvenate. These three concepts, which In Sanskrit are prajna, svadyaya, and rasayana, are the core components of the intensive.
· Prajna (wisdom): In the Yoga Sutras Patanjali says that true wisdom is different from knowledge gained through learning, hearing, or inference. True wisdom comes through uncovering and remembering our innate connection to the cosmic force or God. All yoga practices are designed to reveal this truth.
· Svadyaya (self-awareness): According to CG Jung, enlightenment is not about gaining something we don’t have, rather it’s the gradual revealing of the Shadow by the Light. When we can understand and integrate the various aspects of our being, then we’re free from the suffering they can cause. This is moksha, or liberation.
· Rasayana (juiciness, vitality, rejuvenation): How can any of us give if we are depleted, exhausted, or fried? The yogic and ayurvedic paths tell us that we MUST include periods of rejuvenation (rasayana) if we want to live vibrantly. We must receive in order to share, a spiritual truth that echoes back to the creation myths of many traditions.
