Embodying Philosophy & Theming ~ 50 Hour Teacher Training (October 2020)

16 October – 1 November 2020 |

at Surry Hills & Redfern with Rachael Coopes & Aimee Pedersen
895.00 Embodying Philosophy & Theming (Oct 2020)
“The mark of such a yogi is joy filled amazement” – The Shiva Sutra

Dive deeper into the heart of yoga. The practice that goes beyond the mat.

In this part-time, accredited 50 hour training led by Rachael Coopes and Aimee Pedersen, we’ll explore the philosophy of yoga and how these empowering teachings can be weaved into modern day life.

Drawing from two classical texts, The Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, you’ll learn how to unpack the major themes and apply them to your practice, and how to teach them in class to lift, inspire and connect with your students.

Each day will begin with mindful movement and we’ll chant, meditate, share and reflect.

This training also delves into key aspects of Tantric teachings – which are at the very root of Hatha yoga, and the life-changing benefits of better health, purpose, wellbeing and happiness that come when we practice from a place of intention.

What’s covered:
  • The ideas of dharma and karma, bhakti, mental clarity and compassion as explored in The Bhagavad Gita
  • The Yoga Sutras, including a review of each limb, learning to chant in the traditional way and apply themes in your own life
  • Tantra Yoga with a focus on Tantric Shivaism, which is often misunderstood in the world today but is easily accessible to the modern yogi
  • The teachings of Shiva Sutra and The Nataraj to reveal how we, as human beings, are an expression of the one infinite and divine consciousness
  • How to weave the philosophy of yoga into your sequencing
