Yoga History & Philosophy
Understanding Union, Relationships & Opposites
This ancient system of health and well-being, reveals a path to develop and expand our fullest potential in body, mind, and spirit. We will look at deeper sources of knowledge in Indian culture, Vedic history, and ancient manuscripts such as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita, and the cosmology of Sankhya Darshana.
Asana, Pranayama & Meditation
Taking a Position of Steadiness and Comfort
The yoga sutras refer to asana as the integration of sthira (steadiness) and sukha (comfort). This important sutra will guide us as we look into the deeper aspects of asana, including alignment, adjustments, and variations. We will explore and deepen our understanding of energetic techniques such as bandhas, dristi, kriyas, mudras, and chakras in order to expand our awareness and understanding of the subtle movement of prana through asana.
Practice of Teaching
Conveying the Essence of Yoga
The art of teaching is yoga in itself, requiring sensitivity, compassion, and practice. A teacher must encourage and inspire, being sensitive to the needs of both the individual and the group. The psychology and ethics of the student/teacher relationship will also be explored. Improved teaching skills, including the use of language, theme, and music will also be developed.
Practice of Sequencing
Progression of Movement in Time and Space
An intelligent and efficient movement from one place to the next through time is necessary to reach the ultimate goals of yoga. Topics will include class themes and rhythms, goal poses, mini-modules focusing on opening a specific area such as hips or shoulders, vinyasas and namaskars, yoga therapeutics, and use of music.
Practice of Adjustments
Instructing the Wisdom of the Body through Touch
The art of teaching is yoga in itself, requiring sensitivity, compassion, and practice. A teacher must encourage and inspire, being sensitive to the needs of both the individual and the group. How to properly adjust using visual (body language), verbal (voice), and kinesthetic (touch) tools is a key component of this training.
Practice of Ayurveda
Understanding the Knowledge of Life
Ayurveda is an ancient science based on living in harmony with nature. Topics such as lifestyle, daily routine, diet, and nutrition will be explored. Esoteric concepts such as koshas, marmas, nadis, and chakras will be discussed.
Finding Wisdom & Understanding Within
Understanding from within requires the student to not only expand inner awareness and trust of intuition but also to gain practical experience in the art and science of yoga in a variety of situations and venues.
