The Saraswati River Yoga tradition is an authentic Shree Vidya lineage whose flow of wisdom practices have been fine-tuned over thousands of years and taught directly by lifelong practitioner, recognized lineage holder and Adept Parvathi Nanda Nath to the teachers in this training. To have access to the undiluted and accurate teachings of Shree Vidya is extremely rare; it is a high level, scientific approach to revealing and embodying the liberated qualities that move us toward moksha (freedom). These authentic and time-proven teachings provide healing for the physical and energetic body as the releasing of deeply held obstructed emotions and tensions reveal our innate wholeness. The precise practices of Sri Vidya are designed for those that are interested and actively involved in the world by including emotions, life happenings, and all the ups and downs of life in the movement toward growth and transformation. Practitioners are guided toward living life at a higher level of wisdom, strength and compassion through direct experience and presence.

Through this training, we will begin to gain a deeper understanding of how to utilize the body’s capacity to find stillness, to relax, to listen, and to release blockages so we can more effectively use the tools of yoga to guide ourselves (and others) toward building a more integrated, strong physical and subtle body. Teachers will learn how to weave some of the simpler methods of Shree Vidya into classes and workshops that connect students to their subtle body. We will learn practices that establish sustained emotional balance, effective communication, appropriate boundaries, fortitude, and skill in action. We can truly begin to steadily bring the wisdom of yoga off the mat, and to ourselves and our students.

Participants will be provided with procedures or outlines for any practice or sequence so you will be able to learn at your own pace, practice and eventually teach what is applicable. All instructors in this program have accumulated well over 500 Hours of experience in teaching yoga and studying the practices of Sri Vidya.

Yin Yoga 15 Hour Teacher Training and Immersion

RaeAnn Banker Location: Doylestown

 6/23/2017 – 6/25/2017
Hours: Fri 6-9 pm, Sat and Sun 1 – 7 pm.

Yin Yoga is a quiet and serene practice, accessible for all levels. Poses are passive and long-held, supported by a meditative focus which awakens a brilliant state of health. The practice of Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to Yang (vinyasa) Yoga. This practice derives much of its wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine; incorporating the meridians in order to direct the flow of prana to specific organs systems.
Would you like to share this deep, healing practice with your students, or deepen your personal understanding and practice (or both!)? Join RaeAnn Banker to explore the beauty and healing power of Yin Yoga. You’ll leave with a foundational understanding of the postures and meridian theory of Yin Yoga, and 10 class sequences for your students or for your own use in practice. Certified yoga teachers will receive 15 CE Hours. Open to teachers or interested students with some background in Yin Yoga.
RaeAnn has been a full-time yoga teacher since 2001, and has led 200 and 500 Hr Training Programs at River Yoga. She is certified in Yin Yoga, to which she brings her own blend of experience, humor and practical wisdom. She is registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-500 level, their highest level of certification.
