What style is Shivakali yoga?

Shivakali Yoga teaches an Alignment-Based Vinyasa Flow class, integrated with traditional Yogic practice. Culminating in restorative postures, often combined with meditation, pranayama, and chanting, their practice serves first to awaken the body and break up stuck energy, and then to soften the mind and nurture your inner being. Uniting the solar and lunar aspects of practice, you find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally. Learn how to lead this practice and others, at this 300-hour yoga teacher training in Bali.

Course program

The Shivakali Yoga "Elemental Tantra Yoga Teacher Training" approaches the ancient sciences of yoga and Tantra through a course of the 5 elements. In the earth element, you will practice Din Acharya, daily Ayurvedic self-care as you rise with the sun. You will learn about grounding asana practice, restorative, slow-flow, Yin, and classical Tantric asanas. You will also study accessibility and inclusivity in a modern Vinyasa flow class. Guided massage practices may be offered (optional), and connection to the earth as found in classical yogic texts.

During the water element, you still the waters of the mind with Buddhist Tantra, Tibetan yogas, and meditation instruction from the Nyingma tradition. Enjoy the daily practice of Vinyasa flow, with an emphasis on the lunar quality and classical Surya Namaskar, deepening your knowledge of these asanas. You will begin to expand your practices of transitions, cueing, and props, learning how to float through your daily asana classes and posture clinics with grace.

As we proceed into the fire, you will begin the day at sunrise with Agni Hotra, a classical yogic fire ceremony. You will learn to perform yogic fire rituals, study bandhas and kumbhaka practices, and cultivate inner heat. You will encounter the philosophy of Bhakti, immerse yourselves in chanting kirtan, and dissolve in the fire of devotion. Your yoga will focus on strength and cultivating shakti, learning the art of power Vinyasa, examining creative sequencing, and core work. Shivakali Yoga teaches this in a way that is aligned with classical yoga, while strengthening your practice of arm balances and inversions as well.

Journeying into the air element, you will rise with the practices of Sri Vidya, ascending into Shakta Tantra. Students receive instruction in rituals, learn to draw the Sri Yantra, uncover the mystery of this ancient diagram, and study the history of the Tantra tradition. You will develop the art of intuitive teaching, learning how to teach yoga from a place of deep inspiration, and learn how to lead a truly spiritual yoga practice while maintaining impeccable alignment, cueing, and creativity. You will also explore incorporating other forms of sacred movement into the classes.

Woven throughout the course each week is the element of space, in which you will have free time to relax, enjoy the poetry of Kabir, meditate on emptiness, and read from the Tao Te Ching. You will find what it means to discover your own practice, your own path, and your own truth within as teachers, and as human beings.

Please note that there will be no practices of 'sacred Sex' offered in this program. These are the powerful, authentic teachings of traditional Tantra.
