Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program

You are capable of more than you know…

New session starting Spring/Summer 2017. Contact info@yogacentral.ca for more details.

Teaching yoga does not come easy. It must be cultivated, with love and curiosity.

The Yoga Teacher Mentorship Program honours your desire to teach, your questions and views. It will consider and challenge who you are as a yoga student and teacher, requiring thoughtful, honest and enthusiastic effort.

This is a real-time, hands-on program. You will teach, adjust, critique, absorb, share and unite. Most importantly, you will nurture the seeds planted during teacher training and compassionately witness them as they germinate and bloom.

The program is six consecutive weeks. To maximize engagement and learning, only five teachers are accepted per session.

• Discuss aspirations, identify obstacles and create a plan to gain confidence and competence

• Teach yoga and perform adjustments, followed by peer and mentor feedback

• Review and feedback of a yoga teaching plan

• TMP Manual

Meditation Workshop with Carleen Ellis
Meditation is the ancient and modern technique of focusing attention. When we attend to the present moment we calm our nervous system and become more engaged in our lives. Research shows that meditators receive numerous health benefits and even reduce their biological age. Meditators sleep better, eat better, manage pain better and require fewer doctors visits. Most importantly meditation is another way to reduce stress and live a healthier, more compassion life. Experienced or not…Please join Carleen for meditation and discussion. Together we will debunk the myths of meditation, experience the benefits, and create the space for a new normal. Just for the health of it!Bio:
“Carleen is a yoga and meditation instructor as well as a contemplative writer. She is the founder of Heart Centered Life and is passionate about the ways we can all live our lives more authentically.”

Mudras for Spiritual Unfolding with Meera:
This Sakalya Unique Workshop is part two of a three part study about Mudras. This is a rare offering and immeasurable tool for any conscious Yogi looking to enhance or deepen their personal practice. Mudras can instigate spiritual deepening, self-regulation and be a tool to balance one’s own essence and energy.
This second Workshop, starts with a quick review of the part one “Mudras for self Healing.” After a brief review, we move on to the more spiritual side of Mudras and learn how to use them to deepen our yogic practice, enhance, re-direct, and invigorate our Pranic system and center our minds. These Mudras or finger postures can be used to enhance and deepen our pranayama practice, and heighten and expand our meditation practice.
In addition to Mudras, we will learn about our subtle energy channels known as the Nadis. It is through these Nadis, that life force (Prana) circulates. We will focus on three principal Nadis, and learn how to use the technique of Kundalini Yoga to support and awaken these vital energies.
There will be an introduction to 12 new Mudras, and explanation of their uses and significance. We will then embark on an all-encompassing yoga journey to center, deepen and to awaken stored and stagnant energy, initiating a conscious connection to our spiritual centers using Mantra, Movement, Kriya, Asana and Mudras.
You do not need to take the first workshop to take the second.

Date: Saturday November 25th

Time: 1-4pm

Cost: $50.00 includes your manual.
