This is a required course in the Discovery Yoga 500-hour Master Yoga Teacher Certification Program.
It is open to serious students as well as yoga teachers.

Although yoga is usually thought of as primarily stretching, breathing and relaxing, its greatest benefits are experienced through an integration of four core methods asana (body awareness), pranayama (breath awareness), chakra meditation (energy awareness) and chanting (heart-centered awareness). When these are consistently and skillfully practiced together, an intelligent, inner energy awakens that can lead us deep into our own spiritual core the source of lasting happiness, health and loving peace of mind.

Learning to strengthen and focus this core energy transforms negative misperceptions and limiting beliefs into spacious inner freedom and compassionate wisdom.

When our life force is enriched with this fresh, balanced energy our life purpose becomes insightful and inspired. As we learn to skillfully integrate these safe yet powerful yogic methods, body, mind and emotions are rebalanced, healing on all levels is accelerated, and a profound sense of personal well-being is realized.

In this seminar we will explore how to actualize these possibilities through :
  • Energy anatomy of the chakras - how to use specific asanas, breath techniques and visualizations to optimize our energy potential
  • Essential anatomy of the structural core - applied
    to specific muscular, breath and visualization techniques to support optimal alignment, stability and safe movement
  • A core-based asana technique that emphasizes relaxed stability, fluid movement, and true self awareness
  • Excerpts from yogic texts to use as guidelines for deeper practice and daily life application of the
    four core methods
  • Simple yet effective mantras to use with confidence in enhancing strength, balance and relaxation in daily life situations
