10 Day Intensive
Vancouver, BC, Canada
Nov 6-15th, 2020
*Open to teachers and students alike.This module is geared towards deepening our understanding of the more subtle aspects of the Yoga Practice.
What we’ll be covering:
Art Of Mantra and Meditation
We will cover different mantras, their meanings, how to pronounce them properly and how to lead our students through them. We will also have a daily meditation practice going through different techniques and how to lead our students through them.
Sacred Scripture- You will be given a book list upon registration. We will go over one to two texts a day. Included in this list is the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Myth of Freedom, Tantra, Chakras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and a few others. We will dissect their meanings, discuss our experience of the readings and go over how to apply them to the public class setting.
Pranayama- We will go over different pranayama techniques, their effects, how to teach them and why they are beneficial. Everyone will practice teaching the group and receive feedback.
The Subtle Body- We will go over what it is, how to connect to it and how to make it accessible to our students. Included in this will be Pranayama, Boa Form (from a martial art I used to study called Chien Lung), visualization and mantras of the chakras and meditation.
Ayurveda-The sister science of Yoga
What is it and why is it useful to the yogi? We will go over the doshas, how they are affected by the seasons, the daily rituals (dinacharya), abhyanga (self massage) and what to eat/avoid depending upon our own constitution and the time of year.
