This is crucial to your understanding as both a human and becoming a skilled and effective Yoga practitioner and or teacher. Ayurveda is both a set of universal principles that applies to everything in our world based off their qualities and functions, and it’s also a complete medical system that uses these principles to heal and optimise our body and mind systems. Topics Covered •Learn the foundational principles of Ayurveda and the Divine Code of Nature •Ayurvedic Lifestyles and how to live more harmoniously in the modern world •Understand the integration of Yoga and Ayurveda •Learn to design Yoga practices for the doshas, seasons, and specific imbalances •The energetics of Hatha Yoga from the Ayurvedic perspective •Samkhya, the philosophical framework of Yoga & Ayurveda •Yoga & Ayurvedic Psychology •The 5 great elements and their 20 qualities of nature •Knowledge of the 3 doshas (biological humours) •The 3 Gunas (primal forces of nature) •The 3 Subtle Essences of human life: Prana, Tejas and Ojas •Ayurvedic Nutrition principles and Food practices •Your unique Constitution (prakriti) & current condition or imbalance (Vikriti) •Create a daily ayurvedic routine for you and your students/clients (Dinacharya) •The digestive fire (Agni) and the importance of healthy digestion •Four Inherent Desires of the Soul (purushathas) Dharma, Artha, Kama, Moksha Module 2 Tantra - The Power & Mastery of Prana Tantra is the most comprehensive and inclusive school of yoga. It’s both a worldview/philosophy and a powerful system of methodologies and practices to help you embody the worldview. Tantra is the source of all Hatha Yoga techniques. The tantric approach to Yoga primarily focuses on the cultivation and masterful use of energy (prana) in all its forms. The great tantric visionaries understood that by controlling energy through various techniques including asana (postures), pranayama (breath), bandhas (energy locks), kriyas (techniques), mudras (seals), mantra (sacred words), and meditation, we can control our mind and ultimately master our own lives. In this module we will explore the key principles, philosophy, and practices of tantra to cultivate self-knowledge, inner power, and the integration of both spiritual and material prosperity. These incredible teachings and practices hold the secrets to thriving physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Topics Covered: •Overview & Scope of Tantra Yoga •The Transformative Alchemy & Science of Tantra Yoga •The 3 schools & 2 paths of Tantra Yoga •Moon, Sun, Fire & the 7 Stages of Hatha Yoga (Gheranda Samhita) •The Hatha Yoga Pradipika •The Energetics of Hatha Yoga •The 5 Pranic Forces (Vayus) in the body and their functions •Agni (Fire) – The key element to transformation •A Map of Subtle Body •Chakras & Nadis •Masterful use of Asana, Bandha, Pranayama •Tantric Meditation Kriyas •The Science of Mantra •Yoga Nidra •Learn a Ganesh Mantra to begin all Tantric practices Module 3 The Psychology of Transformation Yoga Sutras of Patanjali The human psyche is an extraordinarily powerful and sophisticated instrument. It can be our greatest asset to living a meaningful, fulfilling, happy, and purposeful life if understood and used accordingly. It can also be our greatest challenge and demise if we do not comprehend how it works and how to use it. Like any other instrument, the mind has to be understood, tuned, and attended to if we want to utilise its higher faculties. The ancient Yogic Rishis understood that what stands between our soul and our experience of life is our mind. There is no way around it, so we must learn to use it with skill and great understanding. Around 2300 years ago, great Yogic Rishi Patanjali, wrote possibly the most profound scripture on Yoga and Psychology called, ‘The Yoga Sutra’. This text is compiled of 4 chapters and 196 ‘sutras’ or ‘verses’ on the obstacles of the mind, and practices and techniques to overcome them and attain the state of Yoga, or Samadhi. The practices are self-enquiry based as well as techniques of asana, pranayama and meditation. While the text is exceptionally detailed and maps out the entire territory of the mind, it is quite impenetrable and difficult to relate to for many students. Much of the text is written in code and the practices are not elaborated on, thus it is essential to follow the guidance of an experienced teacher to uncover these mysteries and practices to fully experience the potential of the profound teachings. In this module you will acquire a deeper and clear understanding of the mind and how to use it positively in all aspect of your life. You will gain invaluable knowledge of the teachings in the Sutra’s along with learning the secret, powerful, practices that are not found directly in the text. We will weave the powerful teachings of Tantra seamlessly with the wisdom and profound understanding of the Sutras to give you a practical, palatable, and transformational experience of this extraordinary scripture. Topics Covered •Practical overview of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and it’s intension •Samkhya Philosophy ~ The creation of the Universe •Dualism vs Non-Dualism •Prana and The Mind •How to practice Asana & Pranayama according to Patanjali •Patanjali’s Teaching on the Three Paths of Yoga (Mild, Medium, and Intense) •The Sacred Cave of the heart Meditation •Science of the Mind according to Vedanta (Antarkarana) •The Yogic Practice of Self Enquiry (Vichara) •The 5 Causes of all Suffering (Kleshas) •Techniques to transform unhelpful memories and emotions (Samskaras) •Understanding where our destructive habits and patterns come from •Learn to reprogram your mind and Connect to Your Higher Intuitive Self •Mastery of Mind, mastery of life •Meditation & Mantra, the keys to Success on the Yogic Path Module 4 Science of Purposeful Sequencing The Tantric Sages of ancient India had a thorough and complex understanding of the physical body, the mind, and the energetics of our existence. They saw these three aspects of our being as an integrated whole. Through deep introspection and experimentation, they developed a comprehensive system of techniques and practices that unlock the powers of our highest physical and mental potential that enables us to lead a fulfilling, healthy, and joyful life. This system is called Hatha Yoga. Hatha Yoga is a scientific, time tested methodology of techniques and practices that include physical postures (asanas), purification (shatkarma) and breathing practices (pranayama), energetic locks or seals (Bandha & Mudra), meditation, and mantra. The Science of systematic sequencing, (Vinyasa Krama) is the process of utilizing these powerful and effective techniques to achieve specific desired outcomes according to one’s own goals & needs ranging from physical & mental health to spiritual evolution and complete illumination. Essentially this module focuses on the integration of Ayurvedic principles with both Classical and Tantra Yoga. We will explore the energetic effects of the 6 different categories of postures (forward bends, twists etc), breathing techniques, meditation, and mantra. You’ll learn the skill, science, and art of systematic sequencing (vinyasa krama) i.e. the why and how of designing specific practices for specific purposes. This knowledge and wisdom is essential to becoming a skilful and effective practitioner and teacher of Tantric Hatha Yoga in both group and private settings.

The art and practice of deep relaxation is becoming imperative to healing from the common and not so common stressors of modern life. Yoga Nidra, or "The Fourth State", is a state of consciousness between waking and deep sleep. It’s a state of awareness where the body and sensory mind are completely relaxed, and the yogi becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner conscious realm by following a specific set of verbal instructions. Restorative Yoga is a therapeutic approach to Yoga practice as therapy. The system utilizes the use of props including blankets, bolsters, blocks, and any other helpful item to support the body. The benefits are far reaching and can be used in many aplications. Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga can play a vital key to the rejuvenation of the body & nervous system, the mind, and deep healing on all levels. Yoga Nidra & restorative practices are needed now more than ever for yourselves and your students. The value and popularity of Yoga Nidra is thriving in the industry and properly trained, knowledgeable & experienced teachers will be a high commodity.
