Ahimsa and Satya: Love and Truth Is All You Need

According to Sage Patanjali, yamas are the mighty universal vows.  Ahimsa and Satya, non-violence and truthfulness respectively, are the first two practices in the yamas.  In this webinar, we will discuss how these two codes of conduct pertain to today's world, how it can be applied to one's practice, and ultimately, how this can impact one's life. 

Ask the questions that come up during your practice, the ones that you were hesitant to ask in class, a workshop, or ones about yogic philosophy that you want to clarify. Please join me and participate in my foray into webinars.

Teacher Training: The Art of Teaching Yoga - Berkeley Springs, WV.
to May 5

Teacher Training: The Art of Teaching Yoga - Berkeley Springs, WV.

So many elements go into the art of teaching. Obviously, knowledge of the subject is essential. To know the subject well means that first the teacher must be a good student. The importance of being a good student before being a good teacher is greatly underrated. Once one has substantial knowledge of the subject, the teacher must then convey this knowledge to the student. But it isn’t just knowledge that needs to be conveyed; the yoga teacher must attempt to create a somatopyschospiritual (whew) experience in the pupil as well as transmit information. A vast arsenal of skills is necessary to do this effectively; what makes this even more difficult is that each student learns in her/his own way, so different techniques are needed for each student.

Over the weekend, we’ll examine what it takes to be a good student, how to recognize the needs of your students, and methods for guiding them to a deeper understanding and experience of yoga. We will practice asanas and practice teaching to learn and hone some of the skills you’ll need to improve your practice and refine your teaching. As always, we will practice teach in the afternoon classes to refine your skills as a teacher. Optional early morning practice is open to all. $385 for weekend teacher training.


At least two years of continuous yoga practice and steadiness in basic asanas, especially Standing Poses and Inversions.

Course Fee: $385 (Accommodations not included in course fee.)
