100h Sadhana Continuing Education and Practice Series 2022 WITH Rozel Gonzales

Date: April 02 2022 TO January 21 2023 From: 8:00 AM TO 4:00 PM

100h Sadhana Continuing Education and Practice Series Sadhana is a Sanskrit term used to refer to a daily spiritual practice. Sadhana represents a disciplined surrendering of the ego, in which the practitioner uses tools such as asana, pranayama, and meditation regularly. The Sadhana Continuing Education and Practice Series is designed for advanced-level yoga students who have completed both the 200h and 300h Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training programs at Energie EnCorps. The philosophy of the Sadhana program is to cultivate consistency and learning space for our most advanced students. The group would consist of dedicated students committed to the idea of the sangha (community) that practices, shares, and learns together. Discipline is the hardest part of staying on the path of yoga. This group is meant to keep the spirit and fire of yoga alive, to create a sense of community and accountability to one another. It is designed to help one another stay committed and to develop a personal sadhana (practice). This is an ongoing continuous education program that students may participate in year after year. Topics may vary from year to year, but will always be layered upon the principles of Ashtanga Yoga. This is a recognized Yoga Alliance YACEP Continuous Education Program. What is included in this program Continuing Education Program: Advanced level yoga workshops and discussions building upon established principles of the Ashtanga Yoga tradition (primary and intermediate series). Topics each day will always include asana alignment, adjustments, modifications, progressions, use of props, counter postures, and philosophy. All poses will be presented with accessible options for everyone. Energetic Lines of Yoga: Practicing and teaching based on the principles of energetic pathways. Understanding how this philosophy makes the practice accessible to all. Subtleties of Bandha: As the years go by, the understanding of bandha grows stronger. What does it mean to be connected? Where are the connections? Isometrics, antagonists and agonists to create locks in the body. Using the breath to strengthen and mobilize the deeper layers of bandha. How to move from the outer body to the inner body? How do you communicate these subtle instructions to a student and when is the student ready for this? Pranayama and Meditation: Research and exploration of pranayama sequences and meditation methods from different traditions. Experiment with different methods to cultivate consistent practices for yourself and others. Yin Yoga and Chinese Meridians: Dive deeper into the world of Yin Yoga. Group exploration of different classes with different teachers. Discussion and experimentation with postures to work therapeutically and to complement a dynamic asana practice. Develop a better understanding of myofascial release and how this can be attained through yoga and other therapies. Incorporation of Chinese Meridien philosophy into class themes and teaching dialogue. Restorative Yoga: Research and exploration of restorative yoga practices. Playful discovery using props, sequencing, and themes. Experimentation to incorporate these teachings into our own personal practice or classes. Dive deep into the dialogue required for a restorative-style class. Yoga Nidra: Group exploration of different classes with different teachers. Discussion and experimentation to incorporate these concepts into our classes. The opportunity to enrich your practice and teaching through sharing with other dedicated yoga practitioners. Experience and Share Knowledge:  The process of understanding deepens when you have the chance to share your knowledge. We will have the opportunity to share our thoughts and learnings based on shared experiences. (i.e. workshops, books, online classes, presentations) Our discussions will help you to reshape your own practice or teachings. Opportunities will exist to be a guest teacher on YTT weekends, not included in the schedule below. Teaching and receiving feedback: Experiment with new teaching methods followed by peer feedback and self-reflection exercises. Offering teaching feedback to one another will be a critical part of this year’s program, enabling us to continue to grow. Teaching and assisting opportunities will exist on our weekends or monthly meetups, as well through optional karma classes, subbing and group work with newer YTT students. Schedule: Saturdays from 8 am - 4 pm. Each day would include a practice (8-10 am), followed by an in-person workshop and clinic (11-4 pm).
