COURSE OF TRAINING
Our training follows a map of the chakras, starting at the root and ending with the crown. During the root segment, students will ground their intentions for teaching/practice, and learn the vast history of Yoga from the Vedas through the Upanishads, Buddhism, Yoga Sutras, Bhakti traditions, Tantric Lineages and contemporary Yoga Schools. In the sacral chakra we will uncover the countless layers of the subtle body, learn the principles of Ayurveda, and gain an overview of classical Tantra. As we progress through the navel chakra we will explore Yoga’s connection with power, fire, and introduce Lakshmi practice & the business of Yoga.
In the heart we encounter the devotional path of Bhakti Yoga, as well as ceremony, prayer and healing. We will receive teachings on the heart of our practice and share in men’s and women’s circles as a step in our process of uniting energies, where we honor identifying with a group other than your assigned-at-birth gender and exploring the group you feel called to.
Moving upwards into the throat chakra students will learn about Kashmir Shaivism and the Sanskrit language, pronunciation, principles of chanting, and a wealth of mantra & deity practices. Progressing to the third eye the training becomes increasingly more subtle, as we encounter an array of Yogic meditations, explore Yogic Buddhism, and turn inward in silence. Culminating in the crown, trainees will receive kundalini awakening practices, learn Shakti mantra, Yogic ritual, and receive an initiation into the practice.
The training will also include a thorough overview in the anatomy/physiology of Yoga-Asana (postures), a comprehensive outlook on teaching methodology, an intensive dissection of major and minor poses, workshops on adjustments/alignment, and plenty of time for practice teaching.
For those looking to Teach, this training will provide a vast, comprehensive tool-kit for teaching physical postures, breathing techniques, alignment, adjustments, as well as pranayama, mantra, meditation, and more. The principles we instruct can be applied to any style of yoga you feel compelled to offer. For students looking to deepen their understanding, this will be a dynamic expansion of both knowledge and practice. A sincere exploration of what it means to truly practice YOGA.

WHAT STYLE IS SHIVAKALI YOGA?
We teach a presence-based ‘Vinyasa Flow’ practice. Our practice serves to awaken the body and break-up stuck energy through a more challenging flow sequence, and then to soften the mind and nurture our inner being with more restorative poses, pranayama, and silent meditation or chanting. Uniting the masculine + feminine aspects of practice we find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally.
