2013 Classical Yoga Teacher Training with Swami Jaya Devi Bhagavati, RYT 500
Registration deadline: TBA
Course registration: Open now!
Course begins: February 2013
Our tenth Classical Yoga Teacher Training begins this February. During the course, students will experience the eight limbs of classical yoga and gain a deep understanding of how they can bring an experience of yoga, literally “union” or “yoking” oneself to the Divine, to others. Each weekend, students will delve into the physical, energetic, and spiritual practices of asana, breathwork, and meditation. They will learn to calm the mind and discipline the senses through the ancient practices of meditation.
“The course was extremely rewarding. It brought me back to a spiritual path I had lost track of years ago, and has given me a boost that I think will help motivate and propel me for years to come. I believe it may have been the single most valuable experience of my life (so far).” - C.B.
Under the guidance of Swami Jaya Devi, students will gain an in-depth understanding of the chakras, how to use the practices of classical yoga to awaken, open, and heal these energy centers, and how to share that experience with others. Through a carefully guided exploration of breathwork (pranayama), students will be initiated into many of the classical yogic breaths and learn how to unleash the power of these breaths to clear the energy centers and open the flow of energy throughout their bodies. The course will include weekends with internationally renowned master yogis such as Mukunda Stiles, Bhagavan Das, and others.
In-Depth Study of
Learn to become a teacher of Classical Yoga in our Teacher’s
Training Program. This course will take you more deeply into
the experience of yoga as a moving meditation, and teach you
how to bring the same experience to others. It will create a deep understanding of the asanas and their
the power of pranayama, experiential anatomy, yoga philosophy
and theory, meditation, mantra and mudra, and the ultimate
goal of yoga: union; wholeness of being.
addition, you will gain an understanding of four major paths
of yoga: Raja Yoga, the eight-limbed path described by Patanjali
in the Yoga Sutras; Jnana Yoga, the path of intellectual
study and introspection; Karma Yoga, the path of service
and action; and Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion. You will
experience each of these paths personally, as you participate
in the different parts of the course. At the end of the
course, you will be well prepared to teach others the depth
of classical yoga.
