MAKE YOGA A LIFE PRACTICE
Because of the way yoga is presented in the west, most people will never get the opportunity to reap its limitless potential for self-improvement. Yoga is so much more than showing up at a weekly class. The science of yoga was systematically designed to take you on an interior journey to meet your true Self. Here, you can find the tools and inspiration to bring wellness and spirituality into every aspect of your life.
Prana, or life force, is the essence that gives you abundant energy and allows you to fully experience life and all it has to offer. When your channels for prana are open and clear, energy flows, you are at ease in life and can embrace and enjoy the path you were meant to walk. Pranic Awakening offers simple, powerful tools to harness divine power to move life force to every cell in the physical structure, through the energy channels and chakras, and beyond.
Pranic Awakening is a nine-month journey of personal growth that unfolds the higher consciousness deep in your heart. Acquire tools for introspection, relaxation and healing so each moment can be lived with profound awareness and gratitude. Remember your essential spiritual nature and allow life to become joyous, meaningful, and carefree. Healing for the collective begins with healing of thyself.
CURRICULUM BASED ON
Resiliency * Safety * Self-Mastery
PHILOSOPHY: Comprehension of how you came into a physical existence lets you explore the relationship of the macrocosm and microcosm. By understanding that the contents of your consciousness—perceptions, thoughts, emotions, memories, fantasies, dreams—have a kind of material existence, you can then use meditation to shift your identity orientation away from the contents of your mind and back to the Witness.
PRANAYAMA: The control of the breath forms the core of spiritual awakening. Explore a variety of techniques and how to apply them according to constitutional needs to improve the function of the central nervous system, to balance the energy body, and enhance resiliency - the ability to adapt to stress and bounce back.
MEDITATION: As the pinnacle of yoga, learn an array of meditation techniques to withdraw the senses, harness the mind and make connection with your source of aliveness. With a steady commitment to these practices, long-standing blockages and obstacles can be released, which facilitates greater personal awareness and teaching capabilities.
PSYCHOLOGY: The unique lens of Ayurvedic psychology helps you understand how the mind controls the both the subtle and gross body and offers fascinating insight into comprehensive personality traits and types based on elemental make-up. Learn how various behavioral conditions develop and acquire the skills to use integrative yogic practices to help people return to their inborn state of mental equilibrium.
ASANAS: With an emphasis on creating stability and ease in the body, learn how to practice and teach functional, breath-centric postures that are adaptable and safe for all. Specialized techniques are taught to pump prana through the shape of the comfortable posture to enhance desired energetic effects.
AYURVEDA: The world’s oldest healing system offers deep body-mind care and teaches you how to balance your elemental makeup with nature through diet and lifestyle practices. With this wisdom, gain the ability to design rich, integrative practices for yourself or others based on constitutional needs and not one-size-fits-all.
BEFRIEND YOUR BODY
Making friends with our bodies is not easy. We often worry about the size we wish it was, how its aging, how well it does or doesn't perform or how we should change it. We may get caught in an unrelenting cycle of harsh self-judgment, painful emotions and harmful behaviors. When we see the body as an adversary, these dysfunctional patterns can lead to a mind-body split and create a host of physical, psychological and spiritual issues.
The science of yoga offers a time-tested, holistic system to befriend the body and support its purpose in this lifetime. Beyond the obvious benefits of increased strength, stamina and range of movement, improved muscle tone and better immunity, yoga is a powerful catalyst to bring compassion toward the body and maintain a strong mind-body connection, which is critical to optimum health.
Learn safe, functional yoga postures that are activated with prescriptive breathing practices to move life force, or prana, throughout the systems of the body. This somatic movement meets people where there are physically and mentally and will help you:
Learn to listen to your body
Strengthen your prana (life force)
Make healthy choices based on signals from your body
Develop centering and grounding techniques
Re-establish a connection with yourself and others.
Change the perception of your body
Enjoy being in your body more
Have greater self-respect and a deep sense of gratitude for what your body is capable of
Learn skills that quiet the inner critic, so you can develop a new relationship with your body
Coupled with the knowledge of Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga that governs dietary and lifestyle habits, this course will help you understand your dosha, or elemental mind-body type. Learn to honor your body with a diet suited to your specific needs, foster nourishing self-care practices and get the powerful skills to sync with the rhythms of nature. Acquire the ability to understand how energy flows in your body and how to balance it with advanced self-healing techniques.
Join a tribe of supportive and like-minded individuals with a similar mission ready to view the body not just as something to be healed or restored but as a source of great wisdom and knowledge.
Lose Your Mind, Gain Your Sanity
The mind is defined as the sum of the cognitive abilities that enable consciousness, perception, memory, thinking, imagination and judgment. Yogic scriptures describe the mind as an inner instrument. It stockpiles our memories, manifests our hopes and desires, and manages our daily activities.
To gather experience, the mind must be connected to a body. It is through the channels of the senses and the sense organs (the eyes, ears, hands, feet, etc.) that the mind receives impressions from outside, and acts on the outer world. Mind and body are thus a subtly integrated team.
When one is dominated by the incessant ruminations of the mind many issues may occur: anxiety, depression, anger, dysfunctional breathing patterns, insomnia, poor digestion and immunity, emotional/behavioral disorders, relationship challenges, poor job performance, exhaustion, decreased functioning of systems of the body, disease and a weakening of prana, or life force.
When the mind is steady and clear, it is a positive ally to help manifest desires, balance emotions, deepen relationships and enhance spirituality. But the nature of the mind is to do more, achieve more and gain more! Unless there is a steady, effective practice to pacify the mind, it will dominate our lives and our wheels will continue to spin.
In the west, asana practice is the focal point of yoga - how much we can do, what we can achieve, how we look in our poses, what we wear, how much we sweat. But in the ancient systems of yoga and ayurveda, meditation is the pinnacle practice. What we need is less movement in our minds and bodies and more stillness. Meditation is the mechanism to create space in a cramped mind and a tight body.
These courses are designed to help you conquer your mind, so you can live the most evolved life possible. So you can do less yet be more. Learn breath-centric asana sequences designed to release tension, open the body and prepare you to be still. Use pranayama techniques to pacify the nervous system and open your energy channels.
Practice techniques that help you sharpen and focus your mind into a state of one-pointedness. And then experience powerful, meditative practices that will transform the way you exist. Awaken "The Silent Witness" so life is smooth, health is strong, emotions are balanced and challenges become opportunities.
Learn to cultivate your personalized sadhana, or daily spiritual practice, which is the foundation of all spiritual endeavors. Sadhana is your personal, individual spiritual effort and the main tool you use to work on yourself to achieve the purpose of life.
Develop a regular sadhana and take control of your life. Pranic Intelligence 300 Hour Yoga Training will supportively lead you through the enlightening journey to be able to attain that.
We've all experienced some form of trauma: having an illness, losing your best friend to cancer, being a victim of violence, enduring an accident or surgery, witnessing a violent crime, being in a war zone, being a caregiver to someone with a chronic illness, divorce, death of a loved one or pet, losing a job.
How one deals with the aftermath of such events determines the level of trauma that gets lodged at a cellular level. Unresolved trauma has side effects such as an inability to control emotions, being unable to trust one's body, an inability to form meaningful and loving relationships, anger, anxiety, depression.
These unresolved “issues in our tissues” can manifest physically as migraines, nervous tics, muscular tension, a sunken chest, or a heavy heart and may also take a heavier toll as panic attacks, heart disease, diabetes, ADHD, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, PTSD, autoimmune disorders and a range of health challenges.
Yoga is an ancient science whose very bedrock is to help us understand and release these "residues of imprints” (that yogis call samskaras) that are left behind in the neurophysiology. Recent scientific studies show that regular participation in trauma-informed gentle yoga leads to a significant reduction in symptoms of traumatic stress.
With the proper application of therapeutic yoga, breath control practices and meditation, people can feel safe in their bodies and minds because they can self-regulate their nervous system and mitigate the fight-or-flight response.
These courses are designed to take you from the origins of yoga philosophy and into the realm of your subtle body, or chakra system, where subconscious patterns are stored. It offers a time-tested toolkit of ayurvedic knowledge to balance your constitution, lifestyle practices that sync you with he rhythms of nature, advanced psychological wisdom, and integrative practices to heal yourself at the root level. And if you want to teach the awareness you gain to others... that is icing on the cake.
