DEVOTIONAL PATH YOGA STUDIES FALL 2019
“The yogic journey guides us from our periphery, the body, to the center of our being, the soul.”
--BKS Iyengar, Light on Life
The yoga tradition gives us a path towards clarity of mind and openness of heart. As practitioners, we learn to access our own inner light through this path and its tools.
In the Devotional Path Yoga Studies Program, Sarah Montross will give you a thorough grounding in the alignment principles of the asana practice; the foundational core of the yoga philosophy; and a well-rounded curriculum to navigate your journey as a student or teacher.
About the program
This six week program is designed to provide you with the knowledge, technical understanding and confidence to deepen your yoga studies. It consists of 6 immersive weekends in the fall of 2019. Every weekend will move you forward on your path. You will leave the program conversant with the core philosophical ideas of yoga, an in-depth understanding of each category of asanas, and anatomy that is immediately applicable to your practice and to teaching yoga.
If you are a teacher you can expect:
A grounding in the yoga philosophy that will free you up to study and teach these concepts naturally to your students
A rich study of the asanas that you can immediately apply to how you practice, and how you see and teach your students
Clear anatomy that you can apply to how you cue and assist your students, as well as how you understand your own body
If you are a yoga practitioner looking to deepen your practice you can expect:
Deep yet approachable study of the core philosophical concepts of yoga and how they apply to your life
Exploration of each category of asanas to help you practice with clarity and depth
Clear anatomy teachings that help you understand what’s happening at the anatomical level in your asana practice
