Students will learn The Abhaya Method
The Abhaya Method focuses on the return to our natural state by attuning to the architecture of the body aligned with a free and open breath.
In a very practical way, we teach how to align the skeleton with the proper relationship of muscles and expansion of the breath. These alignment tools simply help the student to find ease, foundational strength, and opening.
At Abhaya, we love teaching anatomy in an interesting and applicable way. Because there is more focused time in immersion, we can understand the body as a whole and why individual patterns arise. Anatomy and therapeutics are taught side by side to better understand the application of it. Each Immersion Teacher at Abhaya Yoga has years of experience in Therapeutics and disseminates the material in a relevant way for students seeking freedom and knowledge in their bodies.
Abhaya is very interested in honoring the Tradition of yoga while making it accessible and relevant to our lives currently. The breadth of history that encapsulates Philosophy & Spirituality is explored from the most early and classical texts to the later Tantric, Non-Dual and Devotional (From Vedic BCE periods – 13th Century – Modern Day). All the material covered is woven back into our living lives. The study of the Tradition offers the student context and depth for their own growth and inevitable transformation.
Understand the “Anatomy of Breathing” and the Physiology of Breathing. Our breath is tied together with the anatomy of the body, fascial network as well as our endocrine and nervous system. These systems collaborate to help serve the health and function of our body.
Meditation is one of the foundational aspects of a yoga practice. By giving us time and capacity for reflection, we come to know ourselves and awaken. Learn the tradition of meditation and techniques varying from the Classical approach to the later Non-Dual approach.
Ayurveda, the ancient science of life is the Sister to Yoga. They work hand in hand. Ayurveda teaches us about our own constitution vatta, pitta, kapha in relation to the 5 elements; earth, water, air, fire, space) and empowers us with tools to bring ourselves back into balance.
My mind gropes around in darkness. I cannot see where my duty lies. Krishna, I beg you, tell me frankly and clearly what I ought to do. I am your disciple. I put myself in your hands. Show me the way.”
