About the Program

This program is design for yoga teachers who wish to deepen there own knowledge and practice towards more subtle aspects of the yogic practices, as well as to get new inspiration and support for there own teachings. The program can fit also to experienced yoga practitioners, who wish to explore other type of practices apart from postures.

This program will focus on Dharma Yoga, Kundalini Tantra, Sound Healing, Mantras and Subtle Anatomy, Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Hands on Adjustment and Yoga Philosophy. Dharma yoga, the main inspiration of this program is a heart opening and mind-expanding yoga practice following the teachings of Sri Dharma Mittra, who has been teaching yoga since 50 years.

Kundalini Yoga is part of the Tantric tradition. Tantra and Kundalini are dealing with transformation of matter and energy, using the Chakra system (energy centers) to transcend our consciousness, by activating the dormant potential of our body, called Kundalini.

In this field we will explore:

+ Subtle anatomy: The Chakra System (energy vortexes), The main Nadis (energy tubes) and their function, The 5 different Pranas and the 5 Koshas.

+ Meditations/Concentrations: the old Tantras offer various dynamic meditations to activate the different Chakras and Nadis such as Trataka and Analom Vilom.

+ How to create a your own Dharma Yoga sequence with the blue print Dharma Yoga class structure.

+ Exploring what one can do with Variations of Poses.

+ Exploring Advanced Yoga Asana.

+ Teaching practice and Practicum.

+ Chanting Mantras and proper pronunciation of Mantras

+ What is Bhakti yoga, the yoga of the heart.

+ How to transcend our emotions through chanting.

+ Learn how to build our own script of Yoga Nidra.

+ Practice on your own as part of your Sadhana.

+ Teaching practice of Yoga Nidra.

+ Theory of Yoga Nidra: what is its goal and origin. What are the most important ingredients of this practice. How to guide and support your students before and after the practice Yoga Nidra.


Yoga Philosophy:
+ We will read together from the following scriptures and discus different ways to interpret their meanings; The Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and Gheranda Samhita.

+ During the readings we will focus how these scriptures can be applied in our daily lives.

+ Other topics to be covered are Yamas and Niyamas, Advaita Vedanta, Karma and Karma Yoga, and different definitions, paths and goals of yoga.
