Go Beyond the Asana. Strengthen Your Foundation.
Embody the Soul of Yoga in Your Practice & Teachings.
Many of us in the west enter the practice of yoga through movement. But the ancient translations of the practice are only one aspect in the eightfold path of yoga.
All 8 Limbs are inter-connected and part of a rich commitment to practice.
These multi-faceted principles will strengthen your foundation as a practitioner of yoga, and help you to embody the soul of yoga in your teachings and in your life.
Who This Is For:
- Dedicated yoga practitioners who feel the calling to go deeper, integrating the philosophy of yoga into their daily life & practice
- Yoga teachers who wish to better understand the 8 limbs, and share it in their own teaching
- Those who have gone through yoga teacher training, but want to gain a more complete grasp of yoga philosophy before beginning to teach
- Anyone who wishes to experience more inner peace, strength and freedom in relationship to themselves and others
- 12 weeks of guided study and practice
- Deep study of the Yamas and Niyamas
- Weekly dharma talks
- Seated practices, including meditation, pranayama, mantra and mudra, for each week
- Asana practices and sun salutations designed to explore each of the 8 Limbs and each Yama and Niyama
- Questions for self-study and contemplation
- A dedicated Facebook group for discussion and community connection
The immersion can be taken for 50 non-contact hours for continuing education or Janet’s 300/500-hour program.
Praise for Janet’s virtual course, Living the Yamas
“Janet’s presentation of each Yama is approachable and allows for soul stirring, resounding contemplation. She opens the door to allow the light, and teaches us to honor the parts of ourselves that we may not like all that much, while exposing the beauty within. Her storytelling skills are amazing, and I eagerly anticipate learning each chant from her and the interpretation of sanskrit.”
— Jessica, 500 Hour Teacher-Training Student
“Janet’s online yamas course was such a great experience. I had never taken an online course before and I really enjoyed it for many reasons. In terms of my personal practice it gave me a focus for my practice and the self-development work with daily asana, pranayama and mantra. It was also so great, as it served to stimulate a lot of self-reflection of certain behaviors and patterns in my life, as they relate to the yamas. It was great way to connect to the Sangha due to the partner work involved in the course. All of the above served to enhance my teaching and deepen my offerings.”
— Tanya Skok Hobbs, Yoga Teacher, Squamish, BC
“I feel so blessed to have been part of Janet’s ‘Living the Yamas’ online training. It felt so beautifully put together, and I really appreciated the structure and support it gave to my practice. It felt luxurious to spend a week on each Yama, and I feel like I came to understand each deeply through it’s connections to the deities, pranayama techniques, stories and asana (not to mention the journaling and sharing experiences on weekly calls with my buddy). The weekly reflections allowed me to understand my own habits and patterns through the Yamas and how to work with myself using the principles of the Yamas as guidance. Janet is so right, this is an ongoing journey. This course has given me the foundation to keep coming back to the principles of the Yamas in my daily practice.”
