ADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
WINTER GROUNDING: WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIALS?
Lets start with where we are. What is our foundational understanding of yoga, how are we currently sharing it, and what are we missing? Can we zoom out and refocus our dharma so it includes an honest and holistic representation of the sacred science of yoga? Let’s share and learn from one another’s experiences thus far and together feel into where each of us has the potential to grow. Emphasis on Hatha (poses & breath work) and Raja (meditation) yoga.
SPRING GROWING: WHAT ARE WE CREATING?
Every beautiful flower in the garden starts with a seed. That seed germinates, sprouts and blossoms when nourished by fertile soil, warmth of the sun, and plenty of water. Each flower with its own shape, scent and color is a meaningful contribution to the collective garden. Through the focus of Bhakti yoga, or the yoga of devotion, lets plant the seed of our spiritual hearts in the soil of our shared practice, water it with yogic wisdom and watch it grow into our unique sharing with the world.
SUMMER MATURING: WHAT ARE WE MASTERING?
Right attitude. Right motive. Do your duty. Do your best. Surrender attachment to the outcome of your efforts. These five pillars of Karma yoga will support our maturing as we go deeper into the fire of our own healing to transmute and transform, hear the messages of our lives, so we may facilitate this for others. We work on ourselves as a service to the planet. We serve others as a healing to ourselves.
FALL FURLING: WHAT ARE WE RESTORING?
Self care at the soul level is an essential for our work in the world. How may we stay nourished while giving to others? The answer is simple: Lean In to grow out. Be still to travel further. Practice silence to speak louder. Root down to rise up. Ask for in order to give. Listen to be heard. Give to receive. Earth peace through self peace. As the song says, “and we gotta have faith, faith, faith”.
Advanced Yoga Teacher Training 300 hour Certification with Soul Tree Yoga
2021 Dates TBD
Lets look at what the true force is in our authentic practice of yoga as a life path, and how does it propel us to listen, learn and share from the heart and soul? Our time together will pivot around a central question; What’s My WHY?
We will explore advanced practices and techniques, well beyond the 200 level, which speak to the WHOLE being; physical, energetic, mental-emotional, intuitive and soul.
Our training will help us to expand our offerings beyond studio group classes, so we may best meet the needs of our students today and reflect the infinite possibility of co-creating a more peaceful, inclusive, and harmonized world for all.
