Yoga Teacher Training
“AWAKE BODY~OPEN MIND”
~ This is not about doing Yoga. It is about living Yoga. ~
(To see interviews with the founder for last year training, go to The Yoga Wheel Channel.)
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).
