What style is Shivakali yoga?

Shivakali yoga teaches an alignment-based Vinyasa flow practice. Culminating in restorative postures, meditation, and pranayama, the 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.

Course program

The Shivakali Yoga elemental Tantra yoga teacher training approaches the ancient sciences of yoga and Tantra through a course of the five elements. This 300-hour yoga teacher training is the first of it's kind.

Earth element

In the earth element, you will practice Din Acharya and daily Ayurvedic self-care as you rise with the sun. You will learn about grounding asana practice, Restorative, Yin, and classical Tantric asanas. Guided massage practices will be offered and connection to the earth as found in classical yogic texts plus other traditions.

Water element

During the water element, you still the waters of the mind with Buddhist 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. And you will expand your practices of inversions learning how to float through daily asana classes and posture clinics with grace.

Fire element

As you proceed into the fire element, you will begin the day at sunrise with Agni Hotra, classical yogic fire ceremony. You will learn to perform yogic fire rituals, study the bandhas and Kumbhaka practices of yoga, and cultivate inner heat. Your yoga will focus on strength and core which learns the art of power Vinyasa sequencing and core work in a way that is aligned with classical yogic principles while strengthening our practice of arm balances as well.

Air element

Journeying into the air element, you will rise with the practices of Sri Vidya, ascending into Shakta Tantra. Students receive instruction in daily practices of the Kalavahana, a tantric empowerment ritual. Further, you will learn to draw the Sri Yantra, learn about the deities contained inside this ancient diagram, and study the history of this Goddess tantra tradition. You will master the art of intuitive teaching, learning how to teach or practice yoga from a place of inspiration, and incorporate other forms of sacred movement into your classes.

Space element

Woven throughout the course is the element of space, during which time you will look to encounter 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.
