The Integrative 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training Course March 3rd to 31st March 2014
Bringing together two powerful styles of Yoga
We are excited to offer you the opportunity to study an Integrated form of Yoga with the blending of 2 Unique style – SCARAVELI Inspired Yoga (Author of the book – Awakening the Spine ) & YIN YOGA to offer a comprehensive style that is healing, intelligent, powerful & deeply transformative.
The two techniques complement each other perfectly. While Yin Yoga works toward opening key areas of the body & awakening the subtle channels (nadis/meridians) through long held poses, the Scaraveli Inspired Yoga which can best be described as an effortless dance with breath and gravity is a Spine centered practice that leads to ‘freedom, Joy, lightness’, fluidity & depth whereby movement becomes meditation. transformative.
The strength of this program lies in the fact that it covers both the Yin & Yang aspects of Yoga to make for a complete practice – a practice that is deeply therapeutic, restorative & energizing.
The course will be taught by – Shilpa Ghatalia, Paddy Mcgrath & Sebastian Pucelle who will bring into the course over 20 years of practice/teaching experience
The aspect of Mindfulness in which one trains the mind to be present is common to both. Both systems emphasize the importance of moving from one’s natural innate intelligence rather than from a set of commands. Both take into consideration the unique anatomy of each individual & offer a system that is suitable to all body types. One is led to a practice that is closest to the natural blueprint of the body. By finding freedom in one’s spine one is freed on all levels -body, mind, emotions & spirit. This is experienced as a natural ‘homecoming’ & a sense of joy, ‘freedom’ & ‘aliveness’ that is unmistakable. The Benefit of Teaching
The Foundation Level Teacher Training can be a transformational time during which you will learn a tremendous amount, not only about Yoga, but also about yourself. The intensity of the course is conducive to strong personal development It will enable you to ‘live’ Yoga. It will provide you with the necessary knowledge & tools to make your own practice & teaching effective & rewarding.
The strength in teaching this method lies in the fact that while one teaches one reinforces the principles in oneself.
The practice will continuously grow & evolve with you & there is no end to its depth. By sharing it with others you will be deeply fulfilled by the transformation it will bring about in you & others! The Course to deepen your own practice
In the event you are not planning to teach you may use this course to intensify & deepen your own practice. If you have been practicing other styles of Yoga you will be able to feel the difference between a practice that involves muscles & one that is spine centered.
If you are working in and with other mind/body modalities you will be able to apply the fundamental principles to bring greater depth to your skills. As Yoga is an experiential science this course has the potential to bring about self-transformation. Moving from Within & Stilling the Mind
Our deepest potential on every level, be it body, mind & spirit lies in our Spine. Most Yoga being practiced today has become muscle oriented rather than spine oriented. It has become purely physical and technique oriented.
The ability to ‘allow’ movement to happen from the natural innate intelligence is missing. It has become centered around “doing” rather than “being”. It is mind oriented rather than heart oriented.
Yoga is about cultivating awareness and this is neglected as students are constantly made to follow external commands and move from techniques that have been passed from one to another. One’s uniqueness is not taken into consideration & the ability to “feel” & move from within is lacking.
This course is the joining of 2 powerful systems both of which directly target the stilling of the mind. The student simultaneously experiences the 8 limbs of Yoga, as movement becomes meditation. (See article about Vanda Scaraveli”When Movement becomes meditation”) Who should attend?
