In this component you will undertake an in-depth exploration of the two ‘master breaths’ of the Living Yoga Method:
Double Breathing and Ujjayi Breathing
. You will learn the most effective means to guide practitioners in the practice of these two breathing techniques and how to refine the practices in order to gain the maximum benefit. You will also become familiar with the extraordinary effects these two master breaths can have on our internal chemistry and how they can be used to reset the mind and create a positive state-change.
With the help of Steve’s special ‘Posture Clinics’ you will learn how to dismantle and rebuild each of the 25 postures of the Living Yoga Method. Together we will explore the
mechanics, alignments, pulse actions, variations and adaptions
of each posture along with their physical, energetic and mental effects, enabling you and your potential students to gain maximum nourishment from all of the asanas. Along with the Posture Clinics, you will also unlock the energetic intelligence behind the specific sequencing of asanas.
In this component you will learn the ancient yogic method for activating inner fire, through the progressive practices of
Uddhiyana Bandha, Agni Sara and Nauli
. By the completion of the training programme you will feel confident, competent and well informed to deliver a short workshop on the practice and theory of these amazing techniques so as to further inspire yourself and others to take on these digestion-boosting techniques.
In this important aspect of the Living Yoga Method you will explore a step-by-step, progressive approach to cold training that is both safe and sustainable. We will look into the latest scientific evidence verifying the extraordinary
healing and strengthening effects
of this revolutionary component of the Living Yoga Method. Together we will also make good use of the ‘Fire & Ice’ facilities at the Yoga Sanctuary to delve into the more advanced aspects of ‘Cold Training’.
This final component of the training is wide reaching, and in many ways specific and unique to the Living Yoga Method. In Living Yoga
it’s not just ‘what’ we do, but ‘how’ we do it
that is of greatest importance. Liberating ourselves from the tyranny of our own egos is key and for this we have four extraordinary principles unique to the Living Yoga Method that inform everything we do in the practice: Sukha (ease), Spanda (pulse), Lila (play) and Poorna (Fulfilment), combined with the ‘6 Keys To Success’ and a generally life-positive outlook. This Mindset training allows us to gradually transcend the limitations of our psychology and gain greater and greater mastery over our minds. If you have ever wondered what makes Living Yoga feel so special, but not quite been able to figure out why, it is probably this component. Throughout the training programme you will learn to infuse your own, and other’s practice, with certain life enhancing ideas that more effectively allow the practice to take you out of your head and bring you back to your heart.
