CURRICULUM  OVERVIEW

.

The Yoga Wheel teacher training  program offers training based on study, practice, contemplation and embodiment of the traditions and philosophy of  classical branches of  Yoga, integrated in a somatic approach to movement and embedded in the essentials of  mindfulness meditation training . 

.

This training offers contemplative study and practice, rooted in the main branches of Yoga:

Jnana Yoga: Cultivating the path of wisdom, illuminated by open questioning and inquiry.

Raja Yoga: Training  the mind through meditation.

Hatha Yoga:  Also known as the Left-handed path, exploring the “sheaths” (Sanskrit “panchakosha“) of body/mind.

Karma Yoga: practice of service (Seva)  to life.

Bhaki Yoga: Within their own spiritual tradition and/or devotion, the trainees will practice  recognizing and honouring the sacredness in every living thing.

Naad Yoga: Known as the Yoga of sound, Naad Yoga includes the practice of primordial sounds and mantra.

Asana practice is taught in a lineage of Hatha yoga which can be traced  through the lineage of  T. Krishnamacharya (India), and more recently B.K.S. Iyengar (India), Dona Holleman (Italy), Orit Sen-Gupta (Israel) and  Gioia Irwin (Canada).

We teach contemporary styles of: Hatha (inspired by the Vijnana Yoga),  Restorative, Kundalini,   as well as essentials of  Yoga Therapy. We will also include the Tensegrity Repair Series, designed by a senior yoga teacher GIoia Irwin.

Meditation training is based on the practice of  Mindfulness ( Sattipatana Sutra).
