You've been practicing yoga for a while now and you're ready to deepen your understanding and your own personal practice, but you're not interested in a becoming a yoga teacher. This program will take you on a deep dive into yogic studies over the course of five weekends, covering topics including, but not limited to:
THE 8 LIMBS OF YOGA
ASANA + ALIGNMENT
THE HISTORY + PHILOSOPHY OF YOGA
PRACTICING YOGA OFF THE MAT
This fall, instead of a teacher training program, we’ve opted to offer “University of Yoga”, a deep dive into yogic studies without the emphasis on the *teaching* stuff. This is an opportunity to enhance your relationship with yoga for your own edification. Instead of having to stress over learning how to teach the very thing you’re learning, you can lean into the study of yoga for the sake of studying yoga. And that in itself IS yoga, *karma yoga* to be specific. Karma yoga is the path of unselfish action. It teaches us to act without being attached to the outcome and to act simply for the delight and joy of being ABLE to act, with no attachment to a particular outcome and no sense of a “me” actually doing the action. This is just ONE of the concepts we’ll explore in the program. This program is perfect for two types of people:
1. the person who loves yoga and wants to deepen their own practice and understanding of all things yoga
2. the person who loves yoga and wants to deepen their own practice and understanding of all things yoga AND thinks they might want to maybe someday teach yoga (or at least have the option open)
With enough participation and interest, we’ll run another program at a later time that builds on the concepts covered in ‘University of Yoga’ and prepares you to TEACH yoga (*University of Yoga will be a pre-requisite for that). For now, we’ll start here with our first semester.
