Celtic School of Yoga Immersion and Teacher Training – YA-RYT 200
January – December 2018
The Aisling, or Vision, of all the practices, stories, and ideas shared through the Celtic School of Yoga immersions and teacher training is to guide you how to reconnect you to your own source of power, to trust your own inner wisdom, and connect to the natural world and the Rhythms that run through everyone and everything.
The old Indo-European word Yoga refers to a connection to yourself which helps you towards freedom and the realisation that you are a vital part of the great tapestry of living in this world—and to discover how it feels to be truly nourished in your own place and land and time.
Together we will explore how to reconnect with the land and build a nourishing connection to the stories and traditions that nourished your ancestral lines. The intention of all of this is will be the development of a yoga practice that sustains your capacity for joyful living. These immersions and teacher trainings are for anyone and it is not necessary to want to become a ‘yoga teacher’. These teachings and practices are tools to learn to love your life and live a life you love.
Immersions 1, 2, and 3 (total 100 hours)
Immersions will focus on the non-dual philosophy and mythology of the Celtic Tradition alongside the non-dual philosophy of Indian Tantra (as epitomised in Anusara yoga) and emphasise the connections and counterpoints involved in both. The emphasis of the philosophy module will be on the Earth wisdom, poetry, music, myth and philosophy of the Celtic world. These transformational Immersions are designed for all students of all levels, backgrounds, religions and ages wishing to engage and deepen the experience of your heart, mind, body and world through your yoga practice. There will be no instruction on learning to teach yoga in these beginning modules, and they are necessary to participate in the teacher training modules. You can expect the days to fly by and be filled with revelation through music, story and myth, philosophy, hatha yoga practice, bio-mechanical technical alignment based on the Anusara™ yoga universal alignment principles, breath, meditation in the company of other like-hearted friends.
Teacher Training 1, 2, and 3 (total 100 hours)
