The level 1: 200 hour teacher’s training course is a deep immersion into Yogic Sadhana (technique of discipline) and studies.
The course is broken into:
In the level 1 course we practice stillness meditation everyday. We must take a seated Asana of our maximum comfort and be without movement. Most important when practicing any form of meditation is to keep the back as erect as possible while keeping the head level, without a stoop in shoulders or a sleepy hanging neck. Attention is placed on the vibration that the breath generates with the natural in and out flow. Tongue is placed on the upper palate naturally swallowing when ever the need arises, though not excessively. The eyes can be kept in a few positions: 1. Closed with the gave softly towards the third eye or in the centre of the brow, or 2. Tibetan style open with a blank look, looking at nothing and fixed without disturbance no matter what crosses the field of vision or 3 at the tip of the nose. When thoughts arise and they most certainly do, refrain from engaging them and getting caught up, instead let them go and let will them pass like water flowing down the river.
Our regular daily practice done in dedication to the highest self. Meditation towards the divine in the context of self realization followed by our breathing techniques to energize our system and purify our body and mind so that the truth can be experienced. All poses are done as prayers, in the mood of devotion to the highest of the high. The poses help to bring vital energy and awareness. We conclude with a deep relaxation a sweet surrender to the earth.
Waylon has deeply studied the philosophy of Yoga having travelled to India 7 times and read too many books. The level 1 course covers the basics, laying a foundation of understanding and introducing the key concepts. We cover the most important Yogic texts
And the many approaches from the physical to the meta-physical.
Everyday we cover the Asana’s in an in-depth way. Point by point with emphasis on Anatomical correctness and how to move in and out of poses for safety and accuracy. We learn about the benefits as well as how to sequence poses, their Sanskrit names and history.
Waylon normally calls on experienced anatomy teachers to teach this part of the course to bring their expertise but also to provide another voice to the teachings.
Each student is given time to teach their own sequences and classes based on the context of what has been covered. Emphasis is given on developing the each students own unique voice and perspective.
