Chakra Yoga Teachers Training
A unique systematic way to study the Science behind classical yoga that spans way beyond the physical asana practice known as modern yoga today. This course is designed for anyone that feels a lack in their yoga practice, where no area is more important than the other, and aspects of spirituality & personal development blossom within the mind-body-spirit triangle.
The Basics of the Chakra Yoga System:
1. Muladhara Chakra:
Earthing- We begin our yogic journey by building a steady foundation, physically grounding ourselves & connecting to the roots of Mother Earth. Establish our place in our bodies and the material world in which we live through practicing Hatha Yoga Asanas, getting us out of our heads & into our bodies, including yoga body building (dandhalls)
2. Swadhistana Chakra:
Flowing-connecting to our sacred feminine & sexuality, the element of water & the moon. Delve into our menstrual cycles & finding awareness in our natural flows. Practice Jnana Yoga- the yoga of self equiry and knowledge: know thyself.
3. Manipura Chakra:
Blazing- The centre of our power. we dive into the masculine energy of the sun, turn up the heat, take a look at our digestion & consciously connect with our food. Practice associated with the 3rd chakra: Pranayama Yoga- The control of energy within the body and the nervous system.
4. Anahata Chakra:
Air- Connecting to the centre of our being through our heart centre. Learning to choose love vs fear, finding joy through compassion for all beings. We learn about how healing works, and practices to create ease within the body- mind and soul. with a by produc of health. Practice for the 4th chakra is dominantly Karma Yoga: what are our sanskaras and how can we clear them?
5. Vishuddha Chakra:
Ether-, we sing around the fire with drums, learn mantras accompanied by Sim's harmonium, including the seed & petal sounds for each Chakra, blasting away limiting beliefs & thoughts, to decipher our highest truth & live in accordance to our highest purpose. Practice Raja Yoga- Royal Yoga. We learn about affirmations, the voice and of course, communication as a yoga teacher.
6. Ajna Chakra:
Magnet- we seek balance through self- analysis (swadiyaya) using the 4 directions of our minds. We learn meditation concentration techniques. The 6th chakra Practice is that of Yantra Yoga (Yoga of sacred Geometry) We gain a deep understanding on the spiritual journey we have just been through. We learn what our main life path energy is, and how that correlates into the cycles of years, months, and days, to better understand ourselves and those around us.
Consciousness itself. we gaze at the different chakra's pure mandala form to strengthen the mind's eye, and even draw them out. We go deeper into aspects of walking the spiritual path. The practice of the 7th chakra is that of Mantra Yoga - using sound as a deeply healing tool to take us beyond our own limiting beliefs, into places where conscoiusness is.
Chakra Hatha Yoga
A Typical Day of Training in Paradise
Our incredible assistant Yoga Teacher, Shani is a Chakra Yogi who believes in following the path of intuition, listening to one’s heart and tapping into the inner guru. Being born into a family of Yogi’s, Buddists and Energy Healers she was surrounded by spiritual influence and always felt drawn to find her deeper calling. It was through this path that she was guided to study Chakra Yoga with the beautiful and inspiring Simmi and then went on to study one on one with Simmi’s teacher and founder of Chakra Yoga, David Goulet. These experiences reconfirmed for her the importance of being in tune with our true nature and purpose, our Dharma. She believes that when we align with our Dharma we can be of better service to ourselves and to humanity as a whole. Shani feels that The Chakra Yoga System is a deep and comprehensive education and exploration into the truths of Yoga and the magical world of the Chakras.
“ I am eternally grateful to have stumbled onto this path, to have received the gifts of this magical Lineage passed down from teacher to teacher and to have the opportunity to share this magic with others.”
The Chakra Yoga System was passed down from "the sleepless saint" of Paramahansa Yogananda's book, 'Autobiography of a yogi" to one of his students, Indian born Swami Gitananda Giri, who practiced as a medical doctor between England, USA and Canada for 38 years. He then opened an Ashram in India, which still runs today.
David Goulet was one of Gitananda's students, where he studied in India for 2 years in 1971. 50 years later, David has immersed himself fully into the depths of yoga we only wish we understood. He has been teaching TTCs for 38 years now, and now resides at his Yoga Centre in Koh Phangan, Thailand. See his website for more of what we will tap into on this training
