5 Day Bhakti Vinyasa Flow

September 5 - 9

Asheville Yoga Center

in person

Come for an opportunity to join a special group of aspiring and experienced yoga teachers and serious students who are ready to deepen their practices and transform themselves into more effective and creative flow yoga teachers.

 

Bhakti means devotion to something higher than just ourselves. Whether it be toward a relationship, a family, a community, future generations or all beings, Bhakti is essentially the development of compassion, love, gratitude and equanimity.

Vinyāsa means to move skillfully with the breath. It is a set of principles that can help us accept where we are now so that we can move with integrity from one posture to the next in a flowing yoga sequence toward optimal well-being.

 

This teacher training will inspire or re-inspire the fundamentals of vinyasa flow yoga with a devotional aspect that will awaken the heart to love and peace. Students looking to become teachers, students who are currently teachers with or without previous training, or students simply having the desire to deepen their practice, will find this course inspiring and practical.

 

Curriculum:

How to design and teach dynamic sequences
Teaching Ujjayi breathing (the inner and outer technique)
5 Bandhas for functional alignment
Mantras for empowerment
9 kinds of Bhakti
