Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification
Jul 19 @ 6:45 pm – Aug 2 @ 5:30 pm
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.

Kundalini & Dream Yoga Teacher Certification
Aug 5 @ 6:45 pm – Aug 19 @ 5:30 pm
Kundalini & Dream Yoga Teacher Certification @ Yasodhara Ashram

This intensive two-week teacher certification program is based on a foundation of self-inquiry and experiential learning/teaching. Using the questions and practices in Kundalini Yoga for the West, you will study the potential of each level of consciousness, then teach in small groups with your colleagues. To access guidance from the unconscious mind, you will explore the symbolism of your own dreams and learn to help others in their personal interpretations, using Swami Radha’s dream yoga method (as elucidated in Realities of the Dreaming Mind).

This certification program can help you gain confidence in teaching the spiritual dimensions of yoga by focusing on Light, building on your personal experience and learning to create a framework adaptable to your students’ needs.

Prerequisites: Completion of the Yoga Development Course and the YDC book reflections.

Renewal: Every three years.
