Yoga is Real.
Whenever I get together with other senior teachers, there’s no end to the bitching and moaning about superficial modern yoga. Some people feel like yoga has become a mere exercise routine, others feel like yoga has lost its soul and become too commercial.
And often when I speak with modern (sincere) yoga teachers and dedicated yoga students, they express a heartfelt desire to learn the deeper parts of yoga and go beyond the typical asana sequence.
The thing is, YOGA IS REAL. Even if the “realer” part of it is not what is popular these days.
And yes typical popular classes can help you break a good sweat, and get you in shape, and a typical teacher training can train you to get a job in the multi billion dollar physical yoga industry. But they usually don’t cover the deep stuff, and if they do, they only have time to touch it. There’s so much more.
The Power of Love Inner Yoga Teacher Training focuses entirely on the inner dimensions of yoga: meditation, mantra, kundalini science, and deep study of key sacred texts.
We will focus on The Power of Love, Divine Love (capital L) and your own capacity to love (lower case l), serve, and live your authentic truth. And you’ll get to dive deep into your own process of healing and the yoga of transformation. Along with me as the principle teacher, we will also have Adriana Rizzolo helping with some sections.
I have been teaching yoga since 1992. I have practiced and taught every limb of yoga and have had the chance to spend more than 25 years endeavoring to live the teachings of yoga. I have seen all the fads come and go and I have had a chance to learn from some of the deepest living masters of our time. I want to be your guide on this path of Inner Yoga.
- Bhagavad Gita
- Yoga Sutra
- Yoga Vasishta
- Shiva Sutra
- Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
- Bhakti Sutra
Module One begins October 15 and lasts for ten weeks. Module 2 begins Feb 18.
The Training is Comprised of:
- Weekly written lessons: Substantial learning sections to read and study posted on our online learning platform. Each week will have a specific meditation practice with guided meditation audio support.
- Three group sessions. We will do them live here in SoCal and stream the sessions for distance learners. These sessions will include meditation, chanting, sometimes embodiment work, and discussion/Q-A.
- Bi-monthly “Dokusan” sessions where I meet with you individually (in person or over zoom) to check in, offer deep soul support, answer questions, and help you make your work very personal and real.
You’ll have to study, you’ll have to practice, and I will stretch you. It doesn’t take A TON of time but you’ll need to stay with the program for all ten weeks. But if you do…, I’ll help you be the teacher and/or aspiring yogi you want to be. I’ll help you be the teacher your community and this world needs.
Teacher trainees also get massive discounts on the Living Waters Healers Training (Nov 4-8) and India Pilgrimage Retreat (Jan 12-24). We will also have an optional Seva (service) component where you’ll have a chance to help us with our Skid Row Chili Ministry in LA. If you live outside of LA, we will support you to do a direct service project where you live.
*Tuition for each 10 week module. Payment plans available. Discounts apply when combined with other events.
