Humanity is Shapeshifting into higher consciousness, and Yoga creates a sacred space to explore this expansion. Shamanic principles and Indiginous Wisdom, combined with the traditional foundation of the 8-limbed path of yoga (Ashtanga Yoga), creates a powerful, profound healing system and a deep remembering within us. As we find balance, trust our intuition, go with the flow, and discover what feeds our soul, we embody truths that manifest us to our highest potential and connect us to one another in a powerful way.
The 8-limbed path, which includes examination of our ethical disciplines, living with awareness, and the practices of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), and dhyana (meditation), is a yogic system that can impact the choices we make, how we act and react to circumstances and people in our lives, and has the possibility to transform our lives on and off the mat.
The 5-day training is unique in that it will focus on Experiential Learning, Native American Wisdom and Ceremony, as well as maintaining a strong foundation in both Traditional (8-limbs of Yoga) and Non Traditional Yoga. It will challenge your commitment, mindfulness, and authenticity as an individual and as a Yoga Teacher. When you begin to embody the deep connection and wisdom of the teachings in this program, both you and your students will be profoundly touched.

– The 8-limbs of Yoga
– Asana Exploration
– Intro to Ayurveda
– Cherokee Earth Wisdom
– Yoga as Medicine: Healing with Yoga, including Aromatherapy Yoga
– Chakras: Eastern Body/Western Mind and Union of Heart & Mind

The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That's where you need to go.

Power of our Light
Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

1. BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD-- Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. DON'T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY -- Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
3. DON'T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS -- Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST -- Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
