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 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.  There will be surprise performances & classes with incredible live musicians and Dj's during the training, as well as special guest teachers & food and drink offerings from local artisans.  Not to mention time for students to be alone in nature, reflect, hike, swim, stargaze, and relax in quietude.

RETREAT CENTER

Situated in the desert on 165 acres of private mountainous land, the retreat center we utilize sits on an aquifer supplying fresh well-water, and offers gorgeous natural views.  In addition to the 1000 sq. foot practice space, there is a bathing deck with jacuzzi, steam sauna, outdoor showers/tub, and a 25-ft saltwater pool with sun deck.  Surrounding the land are meditation huts, sacred caves, streams, endless rocks to climb and trails to hike, and dozens of quiet places to meditate and turn inward.

 

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner will consist of delicious 100% organic vegetarian meals with vegan options, fresh juices, unique deserts, and healthy snacks/teas.    Accommodations are rustic but vibrant and full of charm.  Massage and Healing sessions will be offered daily during free time, for additional cost by skilled practitioners.  The retreat is located in Campo, CA (next to Jacumba Hot Springs).  You'll find us in a secluded patch of desert mountains, just a 3-hr drive from Los Angeles and next to the border of Mexico.

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.
