OUR CURRICULUM:

ASANA

You will learn Classical yoga postures in a Kriya Flow style to encourage a dynamic awakening of life force energy in a  feminine way. Asana practice is an exploration of the physical postures in  yoga. By moving the body in specific positions combined with deep  breathing, you are able to realign the energy flow in your body and  mind. This new movement of energy can heal health conditions and change  ways of thinking, (i.e. belief systems) increase your life force energy  in all ways and bring you into harmony with Self, Nature and the  Mysteries of Life. This teaching includes Classical Yoga postures to  restore vibrant health and vitality to body, mind and spirit and induce  states of deep relaxation and inner connection to the Universal Goddess  energy of Creation and Love.

PRANAYAMA, MUDRAS AND BANDHAS

Pranayama is the science of breath and the direction of life force energy. You will explore the science of breath as life itself, and learn how to use the breathing exercises of Yoga as a tool for change. Mudras are hand and eye gestures that open subtle energy circuits to restore devotion, higher love perception, health and spiritual awareness. Bandhas are muscular contractions that seal life force energy in so that it may be used for healing and to stimulate higher awareness.

During these teaching we will also focus on Womb Wisdom teachings. To awaken the hiding jewels of the feminine architectures.

MEDITATION

Meditation is the culmination of all Yogic practices, it is the ability to be one-pointed, which brings great peace and will allow you to access your innate inner wisdom. You will be guided to increase the length of meditation ‘sits’ and to deepen your ability to keep focused awareness, therefore opening the psychic eye.

PHILOSOPHY

The study and exploration of some ancient Yogic texts glorifying the feminine, whose perennial wisdoms continue to be a map for understanding life in its wholeness.

AYURVEDIC SELF CARE FOR WOMAN

Ayurveda is the sister science to Yoga. In essence Yoga breaks the form, by expending consciousness and Ayurveda constructs it in a new more radiant form for the consciousness to reside in. There is self care wisdom and techniques in Ayurveda that are unique to women. We will explore these and how they relate to yoga.

ASTROLOGY

We are the dance of the heavenly spheres ! They assist us in transforming karma. This section of the Yogini Path will be a introduction about the effects of the Heavenly spheres on our moods our mind and our yogic practices.

ESOTERIC ANATOMY

This is the study of the metaphysical body and how to access its wisdom to enhance the practice of yoga and your life. In this practice we will explore the esoteric practice of generating divine nectar using the petals and mantras of the chakras. We will explore the chakras, the nadis, the five koshas, and the pranas and how to use these subtle aspects of your anatomy for Self Tranformation. 

MANTRA, CHANTING AND SANSKRIT

Mantra is sacred sound. It has been passed down by the Visionaries of Yoga as a method to realign our Ego (small sense of self) to its Divine Nature. All trauma is stored in the body as sound. By repetition of sacred sound you can heal and transform your limited understanding of the Nature of Self. Sanskrit is an energetic language of Yoga and ancient India whose purpose is Self Realization. Chanting Sanskrit is like “yoga” for the tongue with all the benefits of stress release, healing, opening the heart, the body and the mind.

LIVING ANATOMY

Yoga is a living art form. The geometry of a yoga pose if a living mandala designed for the  transformation of body, mind, and soul. From the view point of yoga the body is your temple and this  unique  exploration of the physical functioning of the body during the practices of yoga will offer an  invitation to move deeper into your temple, into the poses, and into the essence of love in the Soul. This study will also Includes some Healing Movement Yoga teachings.

Women’s Circles

Women’s circles are deep part of the ancient Yogini path. The Yogini path is a path that honours connection and community as part of awakening. That find compassion for another as a radiant inspiration and thrives by learning from each others experience and holding space for the jewel of the feminine heart that is capable of feeling deeply and intimately with life and love.

Women circles are amazing stress reducers and empowerment times. When women come together we can open new realms of existence. The feminine body is designed to be a conduit from the formless to the form. In circles we discover how to celebrate this often feared by society potency. We come together to share our heart and souls without judgment or correction. But with reverence and wonder.

It has been predicted by many ancient path this time would arrive the time of the Divine Feminine. Where the feminine impulse will lead the way in men and woman ! The Yogini Path of Yoga is one source of wisdom and power to lead that awakening.
