Kundalini Yoga
 

Kundalini yoga, as taught by yogi Bhajan is known as the science of awareness. It is a specific practice of energy and angles, used to aid an individual in achieving a state of well being, thus leading to a purpose driven life. Kundalini uses breath, mantra, movement, and mudra in specific kriyas, or sets of postures. Meditations are active, often involving specific hand and body positioning held while chanting and or practicing a prescribed breath pattern.

We will explore a Kriya, a meditation, and discuss the basic foundation and tools of this science in this 90 minute workshop.

The Merideth Method® teaches techniques that fosters transparent communication, wholehearted interactions, and mindfulness.

PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS BASED TRAINING

200 hour

For students seeking an immersive yoga training program we are excited to offer the Merideth Method® Teacher Training, lead by John Merideth. Our program is the only program in the SE that offers students the ability to mentor with an master teacher and then assist and teach in real time classes in a studio. The modules are designed to immerse students in the history, philosophy, and practical method of vinyasa yoga. Through the creation of learning paths, our curriculum is tailored to the strengths and weaknesses of the individuals in the program. John uses a Critical Consciousness or integrational equity format between student and teachers in which both question, both reflect, and both participate in meaning-making.  Each student is given individual attention and encouraged to build on inherent strength and reinforce less dynamic areas. Merideth Method® training programs are designed to produce professional, confident teachers that will excel in the ever expanding field of yoga, personal wellness, and resilience consulting.

200 HOUR CURRICULUM
(MODULES 1 - 5)

Taking a multi-disciplinary approach, the syllabus for this teacher training intensive draws from a wide range of intellectual disciplines. During the course, the eight limbs of Ashtanga yoga provide the student with a context from which to explore the form and texture of the ego. Critical thinking skills are emphasized and the student is encouraged to deconstruct the practice from a variety of perspectives both western and non-western (physical and spiritual). To be come certified, students must be able to demonstrate a strong critical understanding of the five primary areas of the MM® and show competency leading, adjusting and sequencing multiple Ashtanga vinyasa yoga classes.

At onlYoga we strive to help students develop a skillful, meaningful dialogue within themselves and with the world around them. We recognize the value and significance of doing one thing very well. We strive to build each of our classes around the vinyasa method, the core of Ashtanga yoga. In acknowledging that Ashtanga yoga is an ancient Eastern practice, we attempt to preserve its authenticity in the face of the ever shifting currents and trends of Western contemporary society. Through years of experience with the Ashtanga practice, we trust in its power to non-aggressively confront mental and physical resistance and in so doing reshape the minds, bodies, and spirits of our students. By creating an intimate setting, with a manageable student to teacher ratio, onlYoga offers a dynamic environment where both the teacher and student contribute to the process of learning. Knowledge, commitment, integrity, discipline, and authenticity inform the principles supporting our teaching philosophy.
