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.

COURSE OF RETREAT
The Shivakali Yoga "Elemental Tantra Yoga Teacher Training" approaches the ancient sciences of yoga and tantra through a course of the 5 elements. This 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is the first of it's kind.
In the earth element we will practice Din Acharya, daily ayurvedic self-care as we rise with the sun. We will learn about grounding asana practice, restorative, yin and classical tantric asanas. Guided massage practices will be offered, and connection to the earth as found in classical yogic texts + other traditions.
During the water element, we still the waters of the mind with Buddhist yogas and meditation instruction from the Nyingma tradition. Enjoy daily practice of vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on the lunar quality and classical surya namaskar, deepening our knowledge of these asanas. And we will expand our practices of inversions learning how to float through our daily asana classes and posture clinics with grace.
As we proceed into fire, we will begin the day at sunrise with Agni Hotra, classical yogic fire ceremony. We will learn to perform yogic fire rituals, study the bandhas and kumbhaka practices of yoga, and cultivate inner heat. Our yoga will focus on strength and core, learning the art of power vinyasa sequencing and core work in a way that is aligned with classical yogic principles, while strengthening our practice of arm balances as well.
Journeying into the air element, we will rise with the practices of Sri Vidya, ascending into Shakta Tantra. Students receive instruction for our daily practice of the Kalavahana, a tantric empowerment ritual. Further, we will learn to draw the Sri Yantra, learn about the deities contained inside this ancient diagram, and study the history of this Goddess tantra tradition. We will master the art of intuitive teaching, learning how to teach/practice yoga from a place of inspiration, and incorporate other forms of sacred movement into our classes.
Woven throughout the course is the element of space, during which time we will look encounter the poetry of Kabir, meditate on emptiness, and read from the Tao Te Ching. We will find what it means to discover our own practice, our own path, and our own truth within... as teachers, and as human beings.
NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO PRACTICES OF "SACRED SEX" OFFERED IN THIS PROGRAM.
THESE ARE THE POWERFUL, AUTHENTIC TEACHINGS OF TRADITIONAL TANTRA.

Growing up in a traditional South Indian household, Pranathi has been exposed to the ancient Vedic practices of mantra, meditation and yoga since the age of 5. She started following her mother's lineage when she was 16, when she was initiated into the matriarchal shakta tantra teachings of Sri Vidya through her first teacher, Sri Amritananda Natha Saraswati of Devipuram.
Pranathi will be teaching the Kalavahana, a tantric empowerment ritual, which removes bodily afflictions and transforms mental, social and spiritual force. Kalavahana invokes cosmic energy to activate and balance the power centers contained within each petal of each lotus on the seven chakras of our own body. Pranathi will further be sharing teachings on the Sri Yantra, the meanings of the interlocking triangles and presiding deities, as well as instructions on how to draw our own yantras. Sri Yantra is a tool that gives a vision of total existence, aiding us to rediscover our primordial source and work towards ultimate union with the cosmos.

Q: I haven't completed a 200 Hour Teacher Training. Can I still take this 300 Hour Teacher Training?
A: Yes, you can take a 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training without having completed a 200 Hour Training! Although you will not be able to register as an RYT with the Yoga Alliance until completing another 200 Hour Training, you will receive 300 Hour Yoga Certification from Shivakali Yoga. As a Pre-Requisite, we ask that students coming to this training without having completed a 200 Hour YTT have a background in the practice of Vinyasa Yoga for at least 3 years, and be familiar with Surya Namaskar A, as well as the poses Warrior 1, Warrior 2, and Warrior 3.
Q: Do I need to register as an RYT with the Yoga Alliance in order to teach Yoga?
A: There are many people all over the world who teach without being registered with the Yoga Alliance.

FLIGHTS, TRANSPORT + VISAS
Q: What Airport do I fly into?
A: Ngurah Rai International Airport (Denpasar), Bali, Indonesia.
Q: Do you provide transportation from the Airport to the Retreat Center?
A: Yes, we can provide transportation for you from Ngurah Rai Airport for $25 USD per person. Please note, you may be grouped into a ride-share with other students arriving up to 1 hour and 15 minutes before or after you. Your driver will be a kind Balinese gentleman waiting as soon as you exit the airport, holding a sign with your name on it! The drive from the airport to the retreat in Ubud is generally around 2.5 hours, although it can be significantly less without traffic.
Q: Do I need a Visa to travel to Bali?
A: Bali grants you a free 30-day Tourist Visa automatically upon entry! You do not need to apply for a Visa before flying. However, if you would like to stay in Bali longer than 30-days, you have 2 options. First, as long as you are staying less than 60 days, you can pay an extra charge per day of approximately $22.50 per each day that you stay in the country over 30 days. This fee will be charged by immigration at the airport when you return for your flight out, and you should plan to arrive to the aiport at least 30 minutes earlier than normal. This fee must be paid in cash, with Indonesian Rupiah currency.
Second, you can apply for a Visa Extension, allowing you 60 days in Bali. We recommend using a Visa Extension Agency if planning to attend the training, as doing this on your own will take 3 visits to Denpasar to complete, which will not be possible to accomplish and still complete your hours in training. If using a Visa Extension agency, you will pay a fee for the agency and a fee for the Visa, but only have to return to Denpasar 1 time. We can recommend agencies for you should you decide to apply for Visa Extension.
