Spiritual integration--the state of yoga--is far from limited to Indian yogis of old, meditating on mountaintops. It can be achieved by us and our students, right here, right now. Yoga in its modern practice, however, is missing key pieces to this personal transformation. This workshop is designed to give us the abilities and understanding to work in this way. Yoga philosophy gives us the clues and the practices, while psychology gives us the utility and context for total spiritual integration to occur. We will explore key philosophical concepts (using the Yoga Sutras), while filling in the missing pieces with a basic understanding of the psychological principles of conscious vs. unconscious. This workshop culminates in giving you a powerful tool for personal transformation, the bridge between yoga philosophy and depth psychology, and will change your mind forever, leading you on a path to discovering your own bliss and resulting in a full and complete yoga practice. This session features lecture, discussion, journaling and small-group work.
Alanna Kaivalya, Ph.D., believes Yoga is for everyone and that each student develops the self-empowerment needed to embark on a personal journey to meaningful transformation. On this principle she founded The Kaivalya Yoga Method, a fresh take on yoga emphasizing the individual path while honoring tradition. Teaching students since 2001, teachers since 2003, Alanna has written and developed teacher trainings worldwide for top studios and independently. In January she debuted a comprehensive 200 hour online teacher training with YogaDownload.com. She holds a Ph.D. in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute, has authored numerous articles and two books: Myths of the Asanas, an accessible practitioner's guide to stories behind beloved poses; Sacred Sound, a yoga "hymnal," illustrating the role of chant and mantra in modern practice. Look for her third book, Yoga Beyond the Mat, in Autumn 2016. She lives in New York City with Roxy the Wonderdog.
