Yoga Philosophy for Yoga Teachers: Level I
September 17 – October 14
Are you a yoga teacher that would like to build upon your current understanding of yogic philosophy? Are you ready to take your practice and your teaching to the next level? Join us for Yoga Philosophy for Yoga Teachers and explore the wisdom teachings of this time-honored path through an avenue applicable to today’s world.
This course was inspired in response to requests from current students, practitioners and yoga teachers coming from different paths and backgrounds to the ShivaShakti School of Yoga. As interest in yoga continues to increase, the level of awareness around the deeper significations of yogic philosophy and yogic practices begin to rise in the hearts and minds of those sincere seekers. This foundational course is based upon the heart of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the 8 limbs of Raja Yoga.
Yoga Philosophy for Yoga Teachers takes you through a yogic philosophical framework through definition of technical terms, concepts and theory and then brings these teachings to life through living examples, practical applications and metaphor all the while remaining true to the principles of yogic philosophy. It is our vision at the ShivaShakti School of Yoga to adapt the practices of yoga for householder life. Householder life refers to living a yogic lifestyle while participating in the modern world. This course offers detailed teachings on the Yogic Psychology of Patanjali Yoga Sutra, offering you a model for understanding your own makeup, mind and unseen motivators and how to begin to re-pattern yourself to manifest your authentic self. Begin by taking yoga off from the mat and start applying the wisdom teachings to achieve the goals of your life. Part I of this 15 hour course covers:
- 4 Paths of Yoga
- 8 Limbs of Patanjali Yoga
- 24 Elements of Samkhya Yoga
- 3 Gunas- The Three Principles of Nature
- Meditation and Concentration
- Patanjali’s Yogic Psychology- Samskara, Vasana and Vritti
The course includes 2-3 recorded talks per week, approximately 3 hours total, for four weeks. There are also short homework assignments each week and an opportunity to connect with other course participants on an online forum. The instructor is available throughout the course to answer questions online and offers two recorded Q&A sessions in response to participants questions during the course.
