Hidden Language Hatha Yoga Teacher Certification
Jul 24 @ 6:45 pm – Aug 6 @ 5:30 pm

Learn what it means to teach from your experience through our intensive fourteen-day Hidden Language training process, and gain greater appreciation of the body as a spiritual tool.
Hidden Language Hatha Yoga is the unique style developed by Swami Radha that takes asanas far beyond physical exercise. From the knowledge, tools and insights you gained in the YDC and the foundation you built through the Hatha Teacher Training, you will gain confidence in transmitting this evocative method.

As a teacher, you will learn to use the tools of metaphor, symbolism and written reflection to help others access the “hidden” messages of the asanas – physically, psychologically and spiritually. You can expand the potential of yoga by offering students an appreciation of the body as a spiritual tool.

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

Renewal: Every three years.

Kundalini & Dream Yoga Teacher Certification
Aug 13 @ 1:45 am – Aug 27 @ 12:30 am

Kundalini and Dream Yoga Teacher Certification is more than teacher training; it is an adventure of expanding awareness and discovering potential. This intensive two-week program is a profound experience of being together with others of like-mind and coming closer to your own self. The questions “Who am I?” and “What is the purpose of my life?” are the foundation of an ongoing self-inquiry that leads to transformation.

Using the questions and practices in Kundalini Yoga for the West, you will study energy, imagination, emotions, heart, will, mind, consciousness, the power of choice, the power of the senses, the power of speech. You create plans and teach in small group sessions with your colleagues. Learning to maintain a focus on Light, you build an adjustable framework to meet your students’ needs.

As part of this course, you also explore the unconscious levels of mind through recording and interpreting your dreams. Using Swami Radha’s Dream Yoga method, you access the meaning of your dreams and tap the benefits of that inner wisdom. Then in small groups you learn to guide others in their dream interpretations by asking questions, offering tools and helping each person unlock the symbolic messages to attain insights they can apply in their lives.

To remain certified, teachers renew every three years. Many teachers return more frequently, finding this program an advanced learning experience and an opportunity to collaborate, to be inspired in their teaching, and to further their own personal development.

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

Yoga Development Course 2019: Celebrating 50 Years of Learning @ Yasodhara Ashram

The Yoga Development Course (YDC) offers three months of yoga in the deepest sense of the word, as a path to Liberation. Come and expand your understanding. Heal. Give yourself the spiritual nourishment you need. Challenge yourself to evolve.

This program, set in the Ashram’s pristine forest and lake during quiet winter, offers a balance of self-inquiry with group work in a community of like-minded people, a process that leads to new discoveries and purposeful change.

During the YDC, spiritual practices such as mantra, dream yoga and Light meditations help you access hidden levels of mind. And three months of reflection supports a process of clarification. Who are you now and how do you want to live your life? Which old patterns are limiting? Where have you created a helpful foundation?

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the YDC. Swami Radha’s original vision is vibrantly alive at the core of this program while Swami Radhananda’s experiential learning approach updates the teaching process.

The YDC is the prerequisite for our Teacher Certification programs.

We also offer an extended-stay program after the YDC for up to five months at no charge to support students in the work they have done during the YDC.   Visit the YDC page to find out more.
