Are you considering embarking on a journey to become a yoga teacher but have limited or no knowledge in yogic philosophy? Perhaps you have already completed your 200hour TTC and feel that you only just touched the surface of all that encompasses this broad subject? Are you ready to take your practice and your teaching to the next level by learning how to incorporate these teachings?
This course takes you through the history of yoga and the evolution from its ancient roots to the more common forms we are accustomed to in our modern society. We will not just explore the teachings of some of the most sacred texts on yoga, but we will learn how to apply them to the life of a ‘householder’. Householder life refers to living a yogic lifestyle while participating in the modern world, something that just reading these ancient texts won’t teach you.
We will explore some of the key aphorisms of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Specifically the ones that offer you a model for understanding your own makeup, how and why the mind works the way that it does, and the ways in which you may begin to re-pattern yourself in order to live a life that’s more true to your authentic peaceful nature.
-The History of Yoga; from the earliest mention in the Vedas to our Modern Postural Yoga
-The Four Paths of Yoga; their original roots and meaning to how they can be modified to support our modern lifestyle
- The Vrttis (fluctuations) of the mind, how to recognize and cease identifying with them
- The Pancha Koshas (five layers) of our being; understand how these layers play a role in our daily life and how knowledge of them can be utilized to better your teaching
- The Eight Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga; as only one of the paths of Yoga, move past a conceptual understanding and learn how to begin to live a life in adherence to these limbs
-The Kleshas- Understand what these obstacles are, how to identify their presence, and ways to overcome them
The Chakras- Learn the intricacies of these very important energy centres including the indications of an imbalance, how we might observe an imbalance in others, and the tools to support re-balancing these centres
Hi, I’m Lisa. The facilitator for this course
With more than a decade of combined practice and teaching experience, I was initially drawn to yoga through the physical practice of asana. It wasn’t until my first 200hour in India that I really started to dig in and discover a deep resonance with Yoga Philosophy.
One of the most prominent beliefs that I hold as a teacher is that we are first and foremost a student. This belief has led me to complete several teacher trainings across a variety of categories and styles, and I continue to do so presently.
I love the idea of online trainings; their adaptability, availability and convenience has led me to complete dozens for my own educational purposes. This has helped me to discover the aspects that really support a student’s learning so that I may incorporate them in my own online courses.
When not studying Yoga philosophy, spirituality, or the biomechanics of the human body; I love to travel the world to experience new places and cultures.
Who is this course suitable for?
