Anusara Yoga58 mins

Bad Ass Drop Backs

Jeanie Manchester

This is a no nonsense, "let's get to it" backbend technique workshop that assumes you already have a strong practice and want to get down to it in an hour. We go straight at the backbends with a strong warm up, good flow and then a pause as we take time to open the shoulders at the wall in handstands and Pinchya Myurasana ( forearm balance) We work our quads open and then into a deep twist before diving into Ustrasana (Camel Pose) to full bow pose (Urdhva Dhanurasana), and then learning to come up and drop back at the wall. A strong, focused class which will stimulate the nervous system and bring more joy and freedom to your hip flexors, and a nice cool down and Savasana to leave you calm and peaceful. Enjoy!

Yoga Teaching Inspirations - Myths

Alanna Kaivalya

These Yoga Teaching Inspirations are audio lectures on how to build your class around pertinent themes and philosophy in yoga.

Ganesh
Ganesh is often thought of as the remover of obstacles, but I prefer to think of him as the revealer of possibilities.

Hanuman!
Hanuman is a monkey deity and has a great story to illustrate certain things that, as yogis, we can learn, achieve, and use to go inside to find out what’s going on in heart and mind.

Krishna
Krishna is featured in one of the primary yogic texts, the Bhagavad Gita, and his image is super relevant to yoga and lends us stories that enable us to practice.

The Power of Om
Because Om has all meaning as well as no meaning, it is a great way to bring spirituality into your class through chanting it and balancing the energy in the room.

Peaceful Warrior
Learn how to teach, through the influence of the Bhagavad Gita, what it means to be a peaceful warrior through specific asana and ways to integrate the dharma talk into the class.

Pursuing the Sick and Twisted

Madhuri

Discovering the best of who we are!

The love of life is not a function of the strength of the heart muscle, but depends on our willingness to reside in pure atman, invite deep intelligence and live in authentic expression. This backbend class challenges us to push the edges or our perceived limitations, and in so doing, short-curcuit our habitual ways of being. To open the locked door of our backbends, to open the locked door of our heart ~ ~ all it takes is the proper key. Then life becomes artistry.

This is a workshop-style class. Run time is 2:15:00

The Kaivalya Yoga MethodMultiple Lengths

Yoga Teaching Inspirations - Sutras

Alanna Kaivalya

These Yoga Teaching Inspirations are audio lectures on how to build your class around pertinent themes and philosophy in yoga.

Yoga Sutra 1.1 - Atha Yoga Nushasanam
This very first yoga sutra discusses Patanjali’s ever-present act of now, which enables us to define yoga as practice for something greater than us.

Yoga Sutra 2.1
tapah svadhyaya

Asteya (Non-stealing)
Asteya, which means non-stealing, is one of the five yamas, the first step in the eight-limbed yoga path.

Gunas
The three gunas, or worldly qualities, are rajas, tamas, and sattva, which make up the material world. Explore what these gunas entail and where they manifest in our lives in this Yoga Inspiration.

Satya (Truth)
Satya is the principle of truthfulness and is part of the Yoga Sutras. Learn about its history, relation to broader yoga philosophy, and how to incorporate this principle into your classes.

Nadis
In this prelude to the chakras, we look at the nadis, the subtle energy channels that form chakras throughout the body.

Viveka (Discernment)
What we’re talking about here is being able to see that which is real and not real. In this Yoga Inspiration, we discuss what is real and what is not real.

Yoga Teaching Inspirations - Chakras

Alanna Kaivalya

These Yoga Teaching Inspirations are audio lectures on how to build your class around pertinent themes and philosophy in yoga.

Chakras (Energy Centers)
The chakras are subtle energy centers throughout the body that reflect emotional feeling in physical manifestations. We move through and have the opportunity to balance them when we do asana.

Crown Chakra
The seventh and final chakra represents the goal of the journey as we move through the different levels of consciousness.

Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye chakra represents wisdom and how we can draw upon it as teachers.

Throat Chakra (Communication Center)
The throat chakra holds our ability to communicate clearly and honestly with our students and allows our students to communicate honestly with themselves.

Heart Chakra
The heart chakra is all about our ability to express ourselves in the truest, deepest, most love-filled way possible. Channeling this chakra in our classes allows our students to feel openness and expansiveness in their bodies and in their heart's centers, their true norths.

Third Chakra
This third chakra is the seat of the ego. How do we use ego when we teach? How can we separate it from our yoga practice?

Second Chakra
In this energy center lies your ability to create anything in the world. It is both the center for creativity and procreativity, meaning it balances our sexual and creative energies.

Root Chakra
The root chakra is where we find our sense of being grounded. When it is imbalanced – when we are away from home literally or metaphorically – we need to find practices that bring it back into balance.
