Individual evaluation, feedback and assessment of all participants will also be done to ensure that your skills are further enhanced by this experience.
This course is open to yoga teachers of any style and discipline with open minds and a desire to go deeper into the experience of Yoga. Physical practice will be in the Hatha Flow style, Himalayan Kriya Yoga Styles and Pranayama, Meditation techniques and Restorative Yoga.
Threefold aspects of this course will be:
- Skill set to make you a more effective yoga teacher, workshop provider and motivator thru adult learning and facilitation techniques, class design tools, instructor development exercises and most of all Inspiration thru connecting with deeper Himalayan Yogic Tradition.
- Applied study of theories often overlooked or not really discussed in basic courses such as the energy body, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Sacred Chants, and also in-depth study of both modern human anatomy and how to help people with different issues that come to you for help.
- Personal growth, inner awakening and the opportunity and constructive environment to break out of those mental patterns and karmic resistances that no longer serve you well. This alone is enough to bring incredibly positive changes in all aspects of your life. Are you ready?
Each day starts at 8am with a 2.5 to 3 hour long Hatha Flow Practice that involves also Pranayama and meditation followed by breakfast and lectures, discussions and experiential sessions throughout midday. Afternoon restorative yoga, pranayama and meditation sessions start at 3pm.
