COURSE OF TRAINING
Our Yoga Teacher Training in Hawaii progresses over 18 days by 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, gain an overview of classical Tantra, and practice Yoga Nidra. 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 (devotional) Yoga, as well as ceremony, prayer and healing. We will connect in nature, and receive teachings on the heart of our practice. We share in men's and women's circles as a step in our process of uniting energies, wherein we also 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.
Each of our 18 days 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. Not to mention time for students to be alone in nature, reflect, hike, swim, stargaze, and relax in quietude. Come join us on the Island.

What style is Shivakali Yoga?
We teach an alignment-based 'Vinyasa Flow' practice, culminating in restorative postures, meditation and pranayama. Our practice serves first to awaken the body and break-up stuck energy, and then to soften the mind and nurture our inner being. 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.
COST OF TRAINING, INCLUDING ALL MEALS, LODGING AND CERTIFICATION:
SHARED CABIN: $3650
PRIVATE CABIN: $4250
