This module of the Atma Yoga SOUL Immersion & Holistic Yoga 300 hour Advanced Studies Program is open to teachers and dedicated students who wish to deepen their practice and teaching of holistic, heart/soul centered yoga. In this module we dive deeply into yoga as a sacred practice, through an approach that truly integrates the universal wisdom of both earth and sky (embodiment / transcendence, mind/heart, shadow / light, etc). We will refine foundational practices, teaching techniques and understanding of all aspects of Yoga. This module may be taken alone or as part of our 300 hour program.
Drawing deeply from the root yoga practices of tantra, vedanta, bhakti and ayurveda we will also explore other sacred wisdom teachings that vibrate with the universal understanding of and embodied approach to yoga and life. There will be support for each student to go at their own pace and rhythm to integrate these teachings into practice, life and sharing with others. A balanced and energetic approach to yoga as a practice of embodiment, awakening and transformation. During these 10 day training modules we support each other in the journey of learning, teaching and sharing the practice of yoga. These modules are truly a deep dive into soul centered yogic life style to deepen our own practice and connection to source and to support others in that journey.
