Unique aspects of Essencia Yoga’s
Our 200 teacher training program is broken up into few main sections: Practice orientation, theory and the practicum.
Along with the flexibility offered in the scheduling of your training, there is an implicit structure that exists to serve all the trainees that requires the very real, tangible directions, assignments (ie Physical Body Asana) along with the less visible, more integral rhythms of learning, (ie Subtle Body Alignment) which manifest in various ways. This is why, there is freedom in this training to ebb and flow where it is you need to, in order to experience the trans formative power yoga has to offer.
We learn organically, through the practice, that most often the "on demand" button, is not available to us, and shazaaam: suddenly are able to perform a posture with perfect alignment, or teach someone else how to do that. However, we are able to step into the process of connecting to our greatest alignment, through awakening to the teacher within. We begin to feel and know the benefits and challenges, as we work through the obstacles in our practice. This moves us toward our center, where we experience balance, and find a voice to lead others toward greater harmony.
It is through the balancing of Abyassa (steady effort, daily discipline, fervor in practice) and Vairagya (surrendering expectation, non-attachment) that we grow.
- Ref The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (v1.12-1.16).
These opposing forces actually work together to bring us into balance. Our work is to make the commitment, show up, and be present for what that moment offers us. It involves trusting the process and remaining steady. Training Manual provided with training, Anatomy of Yoga by Leslie Kaminoff, Sivananda Companion to Yoga, Teaching Yoga by Mark Stephens
