COURSE OF TRAINING
Our training 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, 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 connect in nature, and receiving 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, 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.
Each of our 18 days will also include a thorough overview in the alignment of Yoga-Asana (postures), a comprehensive outlook on teaching methodology, an intensive dissection of major and minor poses, workshops on adjustments, and plenty of time for practice teaching. Expect special guest programs, daily practice with incredible teachers, and time to be alone in nature, reflect, hike, receive a massage, relax in your jacuzzi tub, stargaze, and dwell in quietude.
*THIS 200-HR PROGRAM IS FULLY-ACCREDITED BY THE YOGA ALLIANCE.

What style is Shivakali Yoga?
We teach an alignment-based 'Vinyasa Flow' practice, culminating in restorative postures, meditation and pranayama. 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 calming poses, deep breathing, 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.
