An of Era of Acceleration
People are under tremendous pressures today, perhaps greater than at any other time in history. Whatever the lifestyle, one seems to move too fast to digest the experiences that take place each day. The pressure felt is not exclusively because of work, but also due to the enormous amount of material that has to be assimilated to survive in a highly competitive environment.

The natural life rhythm simply cannot absorb the constant impact of living in a hyper-connected, media rich, turbulent environment.

Quite simply, people are destabilized and fatigued.

As catalysts engaged in creating a better world, we need energy to persevere. The true source of power and renewal is often buried to such a degree that support is needed to reclaim it. Once reclaimed we can realign with our intentions with new awareness and new strategies.

Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification

Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram

This two-week teacher certification program will deepen your understanding of the system of Hatha Yoga that Swami Radha called “the Hidden Language,” which integrates the asanas with the power of mind and symbolism. You will learn —through your own personal reflection, study and practice teaching—how to offer the gift of Hidden Language to others.

Take this next step in using metaphor, symbolism and written reflections to help students access the insightful messages that the asanas can bring. The process involves trusting your own intuition and that of your students. Learn to create a safe, light framework and fill it with an atmosphere that empowers each person’s awareness. Teach the unity of yoga, where body and mind communicate.

Prerequisites: 
The Yoga Development Course, as well as the Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification. Completion of the YDC book reflection project is also a requirement.

Renewal: Every three years.

The Young Adult Program is for people 18-30 interested in living in a spiritual community to explore work, develop self-knowledge and gain skills.

This live-and-work program focuses on Karma Yoga —the yoga of action and selfless service—and also introduces participants to Mantra, Hatha, Dreams and Kundalini Yoga — tools that can help expand awareness.

Yasodhara Ashram is an intergenerational community where people of all ages—from youth to elders and everyone in between—work together. This program is run jointly with the One Month(OM) Program. Young Adults (18-30) are offered a reduced fee structure and Elders (60 and over) can choose to work six-hours instead of eight.

The program helps you deepen self-knowledge, integrate as a valued working member of the community and take away a life-changing experience.

Cost: Young Adults (18-30) $600 (sliding scale). Bursary applications are available for Young Adults unable to pay 50% of the cost ($300).  Deposit $100 when you are accepted into the program.
