Advanced Studies

 

hungry FOR MORE?

our advanced trainings are for yoga teachers and STUDENTS of life.

We are passionate about Yoga, Ayurveda, Human Development, and living well and creating a community of yoga teachers who are also committed to sharing this practice with others.  We also know that this doesn't just happen on it's own - it takes effort, responsibility and commitment which spreads far beyond the yoga mat.

This is why we created these small group advanced training level courses - so that yoga teachers around the globe have the unique opportunity to deepen their practices both on and off the mat, to discover what being a truly powerful and authentic leader is all about, and to support one another in building strong connections within their communities, so that our collective, as yoga students, teachers, and humans will thrive. By committing to learning, sharing, and contributing these practices with others, we become part of something bigger...and abundance and group consciousness comes alive - that is Swastha!

The Swastha Yoga International teaching team, have taught, led, shared and witnessed this beautiful process of swastha in communities around the world, together, for over 30 years and are excited to build a community of teachers, practitioners, and leaders who are equally as committed to being leaders for change, growth, health & happiness. We invite you here to our home, at Peace Retreat in Costa Rica, for a deep and meaningful training experience, and we also encourage you to partner with us in growing and strengthening your own community - wherever you are in the world.

TherapeutiC INFORMED YOGA AYURVEDA PROGRAM

[100 hour therapeutic yoga, ayurveda & MINDFULNESS IN-DEPTH STUDY]

WITH SERENA ARORA & KEVIN MCQUILLAN

november 28 -December 7, 2019

This advanced study program is an in-depth look at the delicate navigation of using yoga, Ayurveda and human potential work as therapy.  The program offers yoga teachers, health professionals, and licensed practitioners alike, a deeper understanding of the inner workings of disease, it’s stages,  and the impact that it can have on both the patient as well as the caregiver.

Our curriculum has been sourced from decades of study and experience in the field of Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda, Somatics, human potential lineages and other subtle body healing approaches. It is a blend of traditional yoga and Ayurvedic philosophy, trauma-informed yoga knowledge, therapeutic physical and cognitive practices, and our personal extensive experience with instigating and sustaining deep healing on all levels - physical, emotional and cognitive.

Students will learn the concepts, as well as the practical therapeutic application of a wide range of practices, techniques, and theories including:

  • traditional yoga poses and various modifications of those poses with props

  • pranayama for particular outcomes

  • how to guide meditation, prana vidya techniques, yoga nidra and other subtle body practices

  • cognitive awareness and emotional intelligence in relation to disease and trauma

  • therapeutic Ayurvedic physiology, functional yoga therapy, and somatic movement

The above practices and tools will provide our students with the necessary skills for teaching a therapeutic yoga class in a group setting, implementing a customized yoga protocol in a private setting, and/or offering viable therapeutic options and practices to clients within a professional health setting.

Who can apply for this training?

This training is open to students who have completed certification of a 200-hour yoga teacher training through an approved and accredited Yoga Alliance yoga program/school. It is especially applicable for health professionals who would like to offer yoga or other alternative healing tools as a complimentary healing modality in an existing health or wellness focused practice. It is also appropriate for students who are interested in teaching public or private yoga classes with a therapeutic approach, as well as anyone wishing to expand and strengthen their own awareness, self-care and yoga practice.

Swastha Yoga advanced program graduates are asked to develop and implement yoga programs for special populations dealing with health considerations such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief, caregivers, cardiovascular wellness, cancer, diabetes, mobility limitations, back pain, hospice etc. For those interested in pursuing higher level certification in the field of Therapeutic Informed Yoga, this training provides an excellent foundation and will support a smooth transition into the next level of teaching.
