PROGRAM INTENTION AND PURPOSE

The Divine Light Yoga Teacher Training program is based in the traditional, classical form of the Eight Limbed Path. The course is based on a richly integrated curriculum which provides for a personally transformative experience where you can understand, assimilate and develop a strong platform from which to teach. A personal spiritual practice or Sadhana, becomes the basis from which you teach, and in your own practice and growth, you develop your authentic voice as a teacher. You gain the knowledge of the key elements critical for effective teaching from these course components: 

  • Roots of Yoga
  • The Classical Asanas
  • Yogic Anatomy and Physiology
  • Subtle and Western Anatomy
  • Meditation, Mantra and Mudra
  • The Seat of the Teacher
  • The Business of Yoga

Our intention is to help you first to become self-illumined, and to experience your own Divine Light, your divinity, and to realize that it is from that place of self awareness and grace that you can help others to awaken. We become a guide, not acting from a place holding the power, but by embodying the wisdom of the lifestyle. As the guide, we empower you to become your own guru, your own light.

We intend to teach from a seat of humility, wisdom and experience of what has changed our lives and to base these teachings in the proven and sacred yogic texts and upon what the great masters have shared throughout history.

PROGRAM STUDY MATERIALS AND REQUIRED BOOKS

A comprehensive book list will be provided to you upon acceptance into the program, with recommendations on where to purchase your books. While the cost of these books is not included in the program fee, the expectation is that you are building a library for your continued use. You may find these books to become invaluable not only in your personal practice, but also in your teaching. Also, depending on what books you already own, can borrow or share, your cost may vary. A course binder is included.

 

PERSONAL HEALTH REQUIREMENTS

The program will include steady and strong asana, meditation and pranayama practices each time we meet. It is highly recommended that you understand your limitations, both physically, mentally and emotionally and work to develop your own practice. If you do have any specific health concerns, please be clear on the application and seek your doctor’s advice and release prior to enrolling in the course. A yoga teacher training course can be demanding on all levels, consider the present state of mind, body and emotion before you enter into this program and do so with wisdom.

 

ASSESSMENT AND COMPLETION OF THE PROGRAM

Throughout the program we will work together in an intimate classroom setting to insure that you fully comprehend what is being taught. Our intention is to be clear, uplifting and fully supportive of your learning, personal growth and future teaching abilities. Empowering you to be comfortable, relaxed and competent in the teaching environment is important as well as awakening in you that divine spark of bhaava, love for yourself and others, in sharing the transformational and healing powers of Yoga. Each step of the way, throughout the course, you will learn techniques for teaching, how to hold the Seat of the Teacher, and how to create and maintain a personal Sadhana. You will experience personal growth and transformation. You will know your strengths and challenges and together we will work to draw out your best in our supportive classroom environment.
