Connect with your inner self through Transformational Yoga
Transformational Yoga blends traditional teachings with a contemporary approach, helping you to let go and connect with your true nature. In this heart-centred practice we combine physical postures (asanas), breathing practices (pranayama) and dhyana (mantra meditation), as well as meditation and deep relaxation (yoga nidra), to purify your body, balance your emotions, heal your heart, focus your mind, and increase your spiritual wellbeing.
Transformational Yoga is a truly integral yoga that goes far beyond just physical exercise. While offering a complete approach to wellbeing, it takes into account physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of health. It functions on a deeper level to stimulate kundalini energy to move up through the chakras, purifying and awakening the chakras.
During the Transformational Yoga teacher training course the following techniques are applied in order to accomplish personal transformation for yourself and your future students:
- Asana: Asana training and practice is your opportunity to examine the asanas in depth, learn safe hands-on adjustments, modifications, and precise alignment. These asanas can be modified and are suitable for everyone from beginners to advanced and offer a holistic approach to health, while focusing on chakra activation, back strengthening, ab strengthening and a standing series. Two asana classes a day are taught; one for your personal practice and development and one teaching you how to teach others. You also have the opportunity to get supervised teaching practice. You will come away with a thorough knowledge of the asana sequences and the physical aspects of yoga, such as anatomy and physiology.
- Pranayama: Discover the healing potential of your breath. Breathing techniques are an essential component of Hatha Yoga. Benefits include improved concentration, more energy, deeper sleep, and reduced stress levels. Not only does it feed the brain, but revitalises the body, since breath is the bridge between the body and the mind.
- Mantra: The science of vibration will be explored during the teacher training. Mantra chanting generates vibrations which are fundamental tools for altering the psyche, and producing a tranquil and balanced mind. In yogic practices, the growth of our awareness progresses with the help of these vibrations. By cleansing our minds with mantras, decision making becomes clearer, observation power is awakened; purification leads to improved concentration and a calm focused mind. Mantras will be translated and clearly explained.
- Meditation: Meditation, Yoga Nidra, and other relaxation techniques are included in the Transformational Yoga teacher training course in order to give us an experience of our pure natures, in which our egos dissolve and we find inner silence. We will introduce dynamic Osho meditations, Raja, Zen and Karma Yoga meditation, as well as silent walking meditation.
Transformational yoga is an opportunity to spend much needed time with and for myself. Its a chance to drop into my body and leave my busy mind and breath and stretch and focus on myself in a totally unique way. I always leave feeling very peaceful, connected and relaxed. – Katrina
