traveled to India in 1996, where she dedicated herself to a conscious evolution through yoga. Janet blends a wealth of knowledge and yoga experience to create a unique, vigorous-yet-sumptuous approach to Vinyasa yoga. She teaches in San Francisco and leads retreats internationally.
Over 21 days, we’ll explore teaching as an emanation of your own practice. This training is designed for teachers already certified at the 200-hour level (or beyond) who are seeking a sustainable way to be a student and teacher of yoga, and for experienced students who want to explore more deeply the integration of yoga in all aspects of everyday life. The training will be divided into the following three sections.
In a long-held tradition, we meet together at Esalen, beneath the summer solstice sun.
The word “solstice” comes from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to make stand). It evokes a pause: a sense of standing still for a moment in the midst of the fire and going quiet — even as our molecules vibrate and dance faster in the midsummer heat.
Whether you’re an established yoga teacher, an aspiring teacher, or a dedicated long-time student of yoga, the alchemy of a yogic path promises deep transformation.
This unique 10-day training begins by establishing your svadharma, your own personal path through the many forms and expressions of the yogic life. To identify your svadharma, you’ll proceed from inquiry to action through a series of carefully guided steps:
• Sankalpa: Clarify your intention so you know where you want to go on the path of yoga. Why do I practice?
We gather at Esalen for a weekend to remember — with our bodies, minds and spirits — all that we have to be grateful for. This experience includes yoga, reflection, renewal, soaking in the healing baths, walking on Esalen property and detoxifying the body, mind and spirit. Before you step into the swirl of the holidays this year, give yourself the gift of looking within. Immerse yourself in a dynamic ritual of asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation and yoga nidra.
