Over 21 days, we’ll explore teaching as an emanation of your own practice.
This training is designed for teachers certified at the 200-hour level (or beyond), who are seeking a sustainable way to be a student and teacher of yoga and for experienced students who want to explore more deeply the integration of yoga in all aspects of everyday life.
The training will begin with Janet’s virtual course on the 8 Limbs of Yoga in advance of the in-person training. The virtual course will run from late January through April and includes a 1-3 hours of material each week. This immersion into the 8 limbs will provide a shared experience and point of reference for all participants, allowing us to make the most of our time together.
The training will be divided into three sections.
We’ll clarify our intentions, so that they can guide us on this yogic path, and explore kriya yoga (the yoga of action) as a way to carry those intentions into life and teaching. This section will be a chance to remember why you teach and to explore your core values and wisdom.
We’ll explore core principles to help align your yoga practice and your life, so that what you offer in class emerges from how you move through the world. This section will explore the yamas and the niyamas (the first two limbs of yoga; or the ethical guidelines of yoga); and we’ll explore the 5 Elements as a bridge between our experience of our bodies and of the world. We’ll also dive into alignment as a principle to guide our lives as well as our asana and how we teach.
We’ll explore mantra, deities, and stories as sources for class themes. We’ll also explore intuitive approaches to sequencing, that help you go from script to a more spontaneous, playful approach.
In the last few days, we’ll bring it full circle, to revisit svadharma: your unique path or purpose in the context of the full path of teaching.
There will be about 2 months of follow-up homework, including daily sadhana (practice), and opportunities to apply your training to your teaching.
Tuition for this program is $4815 for a bunk bed and $6360 for a standard shared room. These costs include accommodations, meals, and the training.
This course tends to fill quickly.
The training offers 300 hours of Yoga Alliance approved hours.
Registration for this immersion is directly through Esalen. Please note that because this is a 21-day course, registration with Esalen is a two-part process. Follow the online prompts, and include your preferred lodging options. You will not be charged at this stage. Esalen will call or email you to confirm registration, room availability and payment of a deposit (around $600).
The balance will be paid just prior to the training, in May 2019, which allows for some time to save. We can also offer a limited number of payment plans. Email [email protected] for details.
