Philosophy...the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga
With emphasis on the Ashtanga 8 limbs, the training has an ongoing theme and focus of Yama and Niyama creating fertile ground for philosophical debate, personal growth, spiritual evolution and integration
We are not biased to any particular religious doctrine and therefore teach without dogma. The philosophy sessions are a way to use the support and wisdom of various teachings to come into a more intimate and honest connection with our true Self and to see how much we can penetrate and maybe dissolve the veil of our illusions and confusion that distracts us from our true nature.
Yoga History & the different paths of Yoga
Highlighting traditional yogic text, teachings, paths and influence from the past and present.
Yoga Living and Lifestyle
Many students find their way of thinking and feeling transformed through positive and beneficial shifts throughout the course. Our special module of conscious living and in particular conscious eating paves the way for practical changes and new choices to be made.
Tribe teachers transmit an experiential understanding of the basic fundamental principles of yoga posture practice: a stable foundation, free breathing, expression of the bandhas and a soft core, according to the dynamic yoga method.
To offer a variety of sequencing and postures asana classes vary between modified primary series, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha and restorative classes. Tribe teachers offer continuous guidance into, out of and during postures supporting students to go deeper with a growing sensitivity and understanding. The focus is to establish comfort and stability and cultivate an awareness that leads to a more meditative and integral practice.
There are weekly self-practice sessions to assess the individual practices of trainees and offer direct feedback. These sessions are an opportunity to express oneself in a spontaneous, free, unique and individual way. You are encouraged to practice and develop your own rendition of sequencing and postures that suit you. Or if you prefer you can practice the modified primary series.
Breathing is so simple and so obvious that we take it for granted ignoring the power it has over the mind, body and spirit. Pranayama is paramount to our yogic practice offering us an intimate way to access and connect to the more subtle aspects of our Being. The training includes a broad range of pranayama techniques that present a gradual yet deep exploration of the power of the breath.
At Tribe we introduce various relaxation techniques such including guided Savasana, Yoga Nidra etc supporting deeper states of concentration and meditation.
We at Tribe feel that meditation is the fundamental practice of a yoga practitioner. If you don’t have a meditation practice then the Tribe training will be a great opportunity for you to begin to develop one. If you do have a meditation practice then the training will probably serve as a fabulous arena to practice new meditation techniques that may help to deepen your current practice.
It is compulsory for all trainees to take part in the meditation practices presented on the training. Some of you that are new to meditation may find this physically and mentally challenging. The meditation is simple in method but it is not so easy to sit for long periods and observe the mental chatter of the mind. The Teachers will be able to offer you the support and encouragement that will help you to embrace the practice.
One of the aims of the training is to create competent and confident teachers. This comes through time and practice. Throughout the training ample time is allocated to practice teaching. Our teachers continuously give guidance and sharing their own teaching approach. On completion of training, all successful trainees can teach a 75 min yoga class.
Yoga practice methodology
The training introduces breath, bandha, foundation and core as the fundamentals of safe and effective yoga posture practice. We highlight correct alignment whilst at the same time transmit the understanding and application of alignment that emerges spontaneously when the basic fundamentals are established. So that alignment changes from being something intellectualised or enforced into an unfolding of the inherent natural integrity of the body.
Modifications are presented as alternatives that offer the possibility of feeling and experiencing a posture in a comfortable and steady way. With appropriate modifications, we create comfort, stability and stillness which facilitates a dialogue with the body without the usual judgment of right or wrong.
Introduction to Adjustments
Verbal and hands-on adjustments are explored to effectively guide students into and out of postures. We feel that performing adjustments requires a degree of understanding and experience that is not necessarily possible to attain in the limited time available. Therefore we focus on the principles of adjustment in a selection of standing postures, seated postures, twists, backbends and inversions. These basic principles develop adjustment skills and awaken the understanding of how to articulate a student’s body so that they can become steadier, more stable and advance deeper into any given posture.
Structuring and Sequencing
As part of the training we offer a sensible, pragmatic and safe approach to sequencing and structuring a Yoga class. Whether you prefer a flowing asana practice or a more direct emphasis on individual postures here you will develop the ability to structure a class safely, intelligently and creatively.
A big favourite of students Yoga Nidra sleep is a special state of introversion where the mind dwells between wakefulness and sleep-producing relaxation, calmness, quietness, clarity and a deep meditative state of consciousness. The history and application of this ancient practice are explored through lecture and practical sessions.
Anatomy & Physiology
In life, we develop bad habits and patterns of movement that limit us physically and emotionally losing the freedom of expression that our bodies are born with. We need to re-establish the ability of the body to move through its fullest range of motion and re-discover the correct alignment that can make us feel lighter and enable us to move more effortlessly through space. Through anatomy, we explore the functioning of the body, both intellectually and experientially, so that we can move our bodies more effectively and more efficiently.
The physiology aspect of the syllabus offers a peek into the different systems of the body to gain insight and understanding of both the physical and subtle bodies.
Basic Principles of Ayurveda
Yoga and Ayurveda are considered two complimentary sister sciences that aim to restore balance and vitality to the body and mind. We will learn basic Ayurvedic principles and how to apply them to enhance and deepen your yoga practice, on and off the mat
The Subtle Body, Chakras & Nadis
Through traditional Hatha teachings, we help you to truly understand what the chakras are and how you can use that understanding in practical terms on and off the mat. Learn what postures activate which chakras, understand the energy system of the body and more.
In the first week of the training, there will be an introduction to some basic kriyas. Such practices are generally performed first thing in the morning after getting out of bed. Having been introduced to the various techniques it will be up to each individual to continue with the practices independently throughout the training. This will require a certain degree of self-discipline and commitment that we hope all trainees are prepared for.
On an intensive course, it's important to have ways to renew, rejuvenate and replenish your energies. Our special healing sessions always come as a welcome treat just when you need it
Chanting is a special practice to open the heart and connect to the subtle energies of the universe. We use traditional and modern chants in Sanskrit, Hindi and English.
Establishing Yourself as a Yoga Teacher & Business & Ethics
Informative sessions designed to support you to set up and navigate through the yoga world as a successful teacher.
