We believe that Yoga is not gymnastics. It's an ancient Indian science that uses the body and breath to penetrate the mind and liberate us from suffering. While traditional Mysore Astanga Primary Series is the main form of practice, this training offers a comparative study of contemporary Hatha Yoga styles. Our aim is to explore the inner/outer techniques of Vinyasa, to reveal the spiritual path underlying the practice; learn the principles of subtle alignment, breath/bandhas/dristi, and the methodology that ties poses together into a seamless ‘moving meditation’; and the technology to stabilize the mind and glimpse at our true nature. Asana is the starting place for meditation, for a genuine yogic inquiry that moves the practice beyond a mere physical experience and makes its relevant to real life.
There is no better place than India, with its 4,000 year-tradition of spiritual practice, to do your yoga teacher training. India breathes this knowledge and supports your spiritual practice. It's a good idea to study away from the distractions of home, somewhere that you can dedicate yourself full time to the yoga practice, and gain a different perspective and ease of letting go. Satsanga Yoga Retreat is a perfect environment that supports your inner journey so you can live the practice and feel what it is really like to be a yogi.
