Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

Philosophy and Practice

With Elonne Stockton & Gladys Huang

(This course will be taught in both English and Chinese).

October 7-17, 2017

About the Training Course

elonne-retreat-page The intention of this course is to offer a practice and philosophy-based advanced/continuing education course (100 hours of continuing education credit) for Mandarin speaking students. Elonne speaks Chinese; some translation will also be provided. The morning session will be devoted to practice, with a 45-minute pranayama practice and a 30-minute seated meditation and mantra practice. This will be followed by asana practice. Most asana will be Mysore/ Self-Practice with some led classes. If your practice is other than Ashtanga you are still welcome. The afternoons will focus on philosophy and chanting, looking at specific Yogic and Buddhist texts. And it will conclude with a restorative practice and light breathwork/pranayama. The evenings will be a mixture of personal time, related videos, and further optional meditation practice.
