Coming to Minot, North Dakota in 2019
Yoga Alliance Approved Continuing-Education Yoga Teacher Training
CECs: 18 Contact Hours
Dive deeply into the heart of Yoga vis-à-vis a systematic introduction to Pranayama and Meditation. A pillar of ancient yogic practice, Pranayama (‘breath regulation’) has untold benefits for maintaining and improving physical health as well as inspiring profound psychospiritual transformation.
During your training you will learn basic pranayama techniques and many beginning to intermediate variations upon them. Most importantly, you will learn to sequence techniques for different purposes and different effects. Some of those effects are energetic (stimulating, calming, downward flowing, upward flowing, centered in and illuminating specific points or landmarks in the energy body) and some of them are self-revelatory in terms of spiritual practice (stimulating different parts of the brain in preparation for meditation, meditations on the breath, heightening prana for spiritual development).
This 18-hour training will also explore the fundamentals of yogic breathwork and purification practices (e.g., mantras, kriyas, bandhas and mudras) designed to open, cleanse and activate the body, mind, and spirit. The training will also feature gentle movement, stimulating discussion/Q&A and practicum experiences that will support your personal and professional growth, positively impacting all areas of your life.
