300hr Module: 75 Hour Art of Wanderlust Style Yoga Teacher Intensive with Schuyler Grant, Jenn Perry + Chad Dennis

This intimate training is for experienced teachers (1 year minimum experience), seeking new inspiration and yearning to deepen their knowledge of intelligent hands-on adjustments, or for those simply hoping to better understand Wanderlust’s unique style of creative alignment based yoga. What distinguishes Wanderlust-style vinyasa from its brothers and sisters in LA is Wanderlust teachers’ particularly close attention to alignment and detail, coupled with a creative and progressive approach to sequencing.

This Teacher Intensive will:
• Help you apply what you already know, as both a teacher and student, in order to lead highly intelligent and creative Wanderlust-style vinyasa classes.
• Enhance your current understanding of intelligent yet creative sequencing and your ability to communicate physical and philosophical instruction clearly and concisely. Because there will be a focused emphasis on anatomical awareness from direct experience, expect abundant palpation and hands-on adjustments.
• Provide a platform for you to realize and develop your authentic teaching voice. This includes identifying vocal habits, both good and bad, that you have picked up over the years [or decades!].

The intention is that all leave inspired and excited by an entirely new set of questions and aspirations for their teaching path. Because the path of a good teacher is always the path of a curious student.

300hr Module: Energetic Alignment with Janet Stone

Are you looking to find inspiration and grace in your teaching or practice? Are you seeking a deeper understanding of alignment within the flow? This training will support an intuitive and playful approach to alignment and class sequencing, that helps you tap into your own experiences and use them in your practice and teaching.

In this immersion, you will:
Learn to create a steady foundation from which to build simple and complex postures.
Explore the internal experiences that shape alignment from the inside to be expressed outwardly, though the 8 limbs of yoga, deities and stories.
Experience how to sequence (classes or your own practice) with knowledge of form, creativity, fun, and alignment.
Connect with yogic principles such as ahimsa (non-harming) and svadhyaya (self-knowledge) as foundations for alignment.
Open to certified teachers, those in teacher training and students interested in deepening their personal practice*
*15 hours of Yoga Alliance continuing education credit, including some take home exercises.

Janet Stone’s studentship began at 17 under the meditation teachings of Prem Rawat. His reverence for simplicity and finding joy in the rise and fall of life live on in her practice and teaching today. In 1996, she traveled to India, the birthplace of her grandfather, and became dedicated to the path of yoga. Janet blends the alchemy of her own practice with decades of studentship. She aspires not to teach but to allow the practice to emanate from her, letting awareness blend with movement and breath. Based in Bali and San Francisco, she leads immersions, retreats, workshops and more. For more information: janetstoneyoga.com

300hr Module: Inquire Within // Tools for Tuning your Asana and Navigating Life with Ganga White and Tracey Rich

In every aspect of Yoga, inquiry is key. Learning to feel and discern the effects of postures and practices is essential to tuning and balancing your unique psychophysical being. Finding how to adjust the practices to yourself instead of fitting yourself into a practice is liberating.

There are many dimensions and polarities to be aware of that inform your practice: Poses as Tools not Goals. Practicing for Wellbeing vs Posturing and Posing. Articulation in Asana. Your Life is Your Meditation. Yoga Beyond Belief.

Join us for a 3 day journey through the physical and into the mystic with asana, pranayama and meditation. This workshop is designed to make you see, feel, think as you navigate your life and inquire within.

Daily practices of Big Poses with Mad Props - will encourage experimentation in Advanced Asana with assists of Iyengar inspired support: chairs, straps, blocks, blankets and bolsters. Philosophical study will include a deeper dive into the classic texts of Patanajali's Yoga Sutra & The Bhagavad Gita to synthesize the Wisdom Teachings with real life. 

In this soul-nurturing retreat setting, our 5 Day Immersion will give students an opportunity to experience intimacy of personal attention, the connection to community and themselves.
