Full Description

This program is a real life enhancement, supporting you as you unite more closely with your own way in 200 hours. Designed for those who want to become teachers as well as those who are looking to increase their personal knowledge or take a more structured step in the search for a spiritual practice, ensuring participants an authentic, innovative and traditional study experience on each one's own path of yoga. Although you will learn from the viewpoint of multiple styles to teach, you will come out with your own way.

How each individual moves about in this life in terms of spirituality, non-violence towards others and the self, purity of the body and thoughts, and stillness of the mind is all yoga. One thing traditional yoga has to offer to modern yoga is more of a living experience that can translate through teaching. This program honors teaching (as well as practicing) as an art form and gives participants the tools to begin to intuitively assess energetics through asana and lifestyle. Because a dynamic and informed personal practice is the cornerstone of effective teaching, participants will work with the instructors and program graduates to build a customized, well-rounded personal practice. Whether teaching is the goal or not, if one is beginning a formal studentship, one must take initial steps on this path of training to begin. There is a lot to be unraveled within the self during these studies. Through the 200 hour format, space and support are provided for this unraveling to happen organically. The approach here is of an educated person bringing the application of the serious, determined and disciplined student back into the yoga community honoring those who have progressed in all practices of yoga before.

Offering 200 hours, this program will provide intensive instruction in asana (physical posture), pranayama (breath control), mantra (sacred sounds) and meditation practices. This core curriculum will be supplemented by clinics in anatomy and physiology, physical adjustments and use of props, ethical precepts, and teaching methodology. You will also be introduced to yogic philosophies, Sanskrit pronunciation, the subtle body and the chakra system, bandhas (energetic locks), mudras (hand gestures), and other topics designed to deepen your personal practice and build confidence in teaching.

One way to which masters commonly refer is observation through contact -- not only with the teacher but with like-minded practitioners. Therefore, community is an important part of Hathavidya. The students that leave all Hathavidya programs form strong peer relationships and are encouraged to spend time supporting one another. Community is constantly providing a network of support as 90% of graduates work on building retreats, events, co-teach classes, project plan and meet up. All graduates are making an impact in their respective communities through specialized projects that are developed and implemented from individual visions.
