100-HOUR YOGA PHILOSOPHY AND YIN YOGA + INTRO TO ANUTTARA RAJA

August 19, 2018 – September 22, 2018

This 100-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Module is a study of the ancient text referred to as “Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras” and the physical practice of Yin and Raja Anuttara-style (Supreme) Yoga. It was Patanjali who first organized the many various yoga practices into eight limbs, from ethical behavior to the deepest states of meditative absorption. We will put into physical practice the system Patanjali developed, including asana, pranayama, and meditation.

We can practice yoga techniques without a theory but our enthusiasm might lapse as the years go by because the process of mental purification can be frustratingly slow.  Intellectual conviction develops from an honest effort to understand what we are doing and why we are doing it. We chant key sutras in Sanskrit. We read all of the sutras in English.

Yin yoga is the other half of your yoga asana practice. Gain in-depth knowledge of this unique way to deepen your yoga practice and touch tissues of the body rarely worked in a more active physical style of yoga. Yin works on the tissues in the body known as the connective tissues. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load which requires skill to guide students safely during longer held poses. If you gently release connective tissue by holding a yin pose for a long time in this way, the body will respond by making it a little longer and stronger – which is exactly what you want.

Anuttara-style (Supreme) Raja yoga takes the study of Yin Yoga to another level providing practices that systematically access the use of electromagnetic energy and gravity to create ease and freedom in the body. This is a unique methodology that teaches you to master the art of creating physical manifestations of the Yoga Sutras and become a scholar beyond the body and the mind.

Combine Yin and Anuttara Raja sequencing with classical yoga philosophy and learn to construct classes to stimulate and remove blockages in the myofascial meridians in the body. This has the effect of balancing the body’s internal organs and systems. Learn teaching methods to help students relax the muscles around the connective tissue in order to receive the many benefits of this style of yoga practice.

Objectives:

  • Study the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali in Sanskrit and English
  • Principles of Yin and Anuttara Raja yoga: Theory and Practice
  • Fascia Study: Science & Research
  • Postures, sequencing & props usage
  • Physical & subtle body anatomy, including safe and supportive adjustments

Open to Advanced Students and Teachers of all yogic backgrounds.
