Poses for Meditation Teachers

Downingtown PA

November 3 - 6 2022

Your meditation students only ever have two types of problems:  difficulty with their body and difficulty with their mind.  Here you learn how to help them with their body.  In our Meditation Teacher Training (MTT), you learn how to help them with their mind.  That’s why this training is a prerequisite for MTT.

In this four-day training, you learn to teach several introductory yoga poses, all as preparation for an effective seated posture.  In addition, you learn several variations on the seated pose, including how to use a chair effectively for meditation.  While sitting sounds like it should be simple, the human body is wonderfully complex.  To help different kinds of people, you need to know some anatomy along with biodynamics and their effect on the meditative energies.  Thus, this training also includes meditation, yoga philosophy, anatomy, partner pairing, stories from the ancient sages and an introduction to the chanting of Sanskrit texts.

Your yoga-full days include yoga classes and deep guided relaxations.  You’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily Svaroopa® yoga changes your body.  It makes you able to learn in a whole new way – organically.  Easily.  And the improvements in your body make your meditations easier and deeper, something you’ll be able to offer your meditation students as well.

Mind & Meditation

You have to get beyond your mind in order to meditate, then meditation transforms your mind so it is shining with Divine Consciousness.
