Earth Ways Yoga is a system of yoga rooted in three layers of traditional wisdom: Yoga, 5 Element Acupuncture Philosophy and the Nature Ways. As a student of this training, you will be guided into a deeper connection with your own healing journey, which will help you define who you are on your personal path, as a teacher of a yoga class, and in this world. This training is well suited for sensitives on their healing path in need of essential tools and processes to help them stay resourced and balanced, as well as for current yoga teachers and healers seeking tools to deepen their practice and support them for the longevity of their work. This teacher training will guide you in your process of living and teaching from a place of cohesiveness and strengthened alignment.
The focus of the Teacher Training will be twofold. First, you will delve deeper into your own personal process and healing. You will be guided to cultivate a deeper relationship with all parts of your being and build an understanding of how they relate to one another. In peeling back the layers of your own journey, you will have the opportunity to connect to the sensitivity of your own sensory system and cultivate your gifts and talents in this world. This process will unfold through the connection you make with your deeper self in your yoga practice and in pursuing a more profound connection with the Natural World through experiential exploration. You will also learn tools and practices that will help bring you back into balance and an embodied alignment at your core root level, including energetic grounding, clearing, and shielding techniques to support you on your teaching journey.
The second element involves stepping into your power and harnessing your authentic voice in teaching and guiding others. In working through your alignment and from the wisdom of your rooted personal process, you can strengthen the connection to your voice of truth. This connection, and the ability to express your truth in power and sincerity, is the single most important tool in teaching and truly living a life of heart-based empowerment.
