By popular request, I am at last creating a course designed for those who wish to teach yoga and also those who wish to develop their practice and understanding of yoga at a deeper level. This is an intensive course of Self exploration for those who want to go more deeply into the study of classical yoga as I have learned and understood, drawing from the classical texts where yoga is mentioned, as well as from my experience as a teacher of diverse populations. This program will be a comprehensive and experiential study of yogic texts and philosophy, meditation, Anatomy and Physiology, yoga postures and breathing techniques, and inspire you to share yoga practice with others in your own authentic voice. A special mentorship program is also available after the YTT for those who are serious about teaching.
On the list of faculty for this first training are:
Dr. Lalita Noronha-Blob (Anatomy and Physiology/ Glimpses of India)
Guru-ji Hasu Patel (mantra and sound healing)
Adhikari Sacha(Living Meditation and Samyama)
Anjali Sunita (primary teacher of Asana, pranayama, philosophy).
This has been my mission and dream for a long time to share all of these aspects of yoga under one roof and give wings to those who wish to share yoga in all the corners of this city and the world. For those of you who have enjoyed learning in bits and pieces by attending our programs at Baltimore Yoga Village, the YTT program is an opportunity to concentrate your study and practice. This program is open to all, local and out of state or country residents.
It’s always been important to me to train teachers and students with a deep respect for the vast history of yoga and to always keep a beginners mind. Ultimately “knowing thyself” is the teaching of yoga, so it takes practice, courage, and persistence to focus the mind inward and to see the commonality between Oneself and all of existence. Practicing techniques in community with others is a great way to enhance one’s understanding.
Registration will be limited to 18 students and payment plans will be available. Please indicate your interest early as we are certain that this course will fill up. We will send you an application, upon request.More information is found here:http://baltimoreyogavillage.com/cms/mt-washington-teacher-training
I always carry the deepest respect for the Sivananda Organization, where I lived and studied in both Canada and India. For my teachers there who have inspired me to teach and propagate the teachings of yoga, I am forever grateful.
