Continuing Yoga Education Courses

These are two-week yoga certification courses, open to all students, which focus on a specific area of study. For those who have completed the Education in Yoga Foundation Course, each of these courses is credited as an extra module adding toward the Yoga Alliance 500-hour level and the official Centered Yoga 1100-hour yoga teacher training standard

Continuing Education yoga training courses require some measure of maturity and commitment, and are open to all students with a sincere interest in growing more in yoga. The morning asana practice is a basic component of these courses. Pranayama will be introduced to new students; returning students will continue to move forward in their Pranayama practice.

The purpose of these courses is to go deeper in practice and continue studies in philosophy, anatomy, and other related areas.

Pranayama Detail and Practice (Part Two)

This course is inspired and blessed by Tiwariji, Paul's direct teacher and one of the few living knowledgeable authorities on Pranayama and its place in the field of yoga today. It is a living tradition. Paul has learnt the full practice in a special one-to-one capacity over the past 14+ years with Tiwariji. Tiwariji learnt directly from his teacher, Swami Kuvalayananda, who was an adept and highly accomplished in Pranayama and the science of yoga. He was also a devotee and spent his years in practice and training with his teacher, Madhavadas, on the banks of the Narmada river, also being taught this exact practice of Pranayama. In this way it has been passed on very personally and effectively. Such a tradition survives all books as it is only experience that ultimately counts.

Hatha Pradipika Chapters 1 - 3

Hatha pradipika is considered the most authoritative and available text on the methods and process of Hatha Yoga. It is a collection of many verses coming from other key yogis and their writings that subsequently got lost or destroyed. As such, this text played a key role in preserving the teachings of Hatha in one source document. Many call it the Hatha yoga pradipika but the author, Swatmarama, himself titles it Hatha pradipika, which means light on hatha.

Action, Alignment & Adjusting as Teaching Tools

Action, Alignment and Adjusting as Teaching Tools

This course goes beyond the basic functions of muscles and bones into movement mechanics including the fascial network. Exploring movement as a chain of events, both controlled and automatic will guide a deeper understanding of anatomy and how the body functions as a whole. These principles will guide us to dissect the actions involved in asana practice, how to identify correct alignment, then learn how to both hands-on adjust students as well as self-adjust. Education sessions will be a combination of learning theory and practical application, with a focus on "doing".

Philosophy and Pranayama
Pranayama and The Gita (continued)

The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is an exceptional writing and is full of wisdom for anyone in life. It is also a foremost teaching in yoga. Quite different to the Yoga Sutras it delivers the different teachings of yoga in the form of a great dialogue. Tiwariji is very personally close to this teaching both from a practicing yogi point of view and being immersed in Indian culture.
