Heart of Yoga Teachers' Immersion

  • The Yoga Barn Jalan Raya Pengosekan Ubud Bali, 80571 Indonesia (map)

How do I teach naturally as myself, without taking on a persona or a script?

How do I give students the tools to look after themselves safely, without taking on too much responsibility for them?

How do I undermine power dynamics in my teaching and relate easily person-to-person?

How do I make my own practice daily, actual, natural, non-obsessive, utterly pleasurable and natural, and then share this?

What is my role as a teacher? 

Explore these questions and reconnect with the Heart of Yoga as it comes through from the Great Tradition. Join internationally renowned teacher Mark Whitwell in this one week continuing education immersion for existing Yoga teachers. YA-certified 50 hours.

Go deep into authentic Yoga, as brought through by the 'teacher of the teachers,' T. Krishnamacharya, and his son T.K.V. Desikachar. We go deeply into bandha, mantra, pranayama, embodied yoga philosophy, what tantra really is and how it is practiced and taught, the right place of meditation in practice, dealing with money/business (Krishnamacharya: "Yoga is not commercial activity"!), teaching without power dynamics, and the importance of daily personal practice.

Restore receptivity to your practice and teaching in a world where the emphasis in Yoga is too often attainment, muscular struggle, and efforts towards a future result. Breathe deeply, practice the ancient technology of embracing Life as it is happening, and learn how to share this.
