CURRENT EVENTS

250 Hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training

September 2020 – June 2021

Our 10-month, 250-hour teacher training in the vinyasa-based style blends a practical approach to yoga philosophy, history and mythology, with a strong emphasis on applying the teachings to a modern-day setting. Our training is steeped in looking in depth at the philosophy of yoga, its sister science Ayurveda, and goes beyond the approach of asana only based learning. We look at the roots of yoga, its evolution and its place in the modern world. 

While exploring yoga postures and their variations, students will be immersed in the intricacies of pranayama, the bandhas, and meditation. The techniques and practices learned will be brought together when exploring how to demonstrate postures, sequence classes logically and fluidly, and adjust conscientiously. We also look at extensive anatomy training and at the ethics associated with the responsibility of teaching, cultural understanding, will have the participants leave the training with a deeper understanding of the yoga practices and teachings and feeling empowered and ready to teach with confidence, or go further in their quest for self realization. 

Faculty includes guest teachers and workshop retreat!

Some Topics covered but not limited to:

  • Meditation
  • Fundamentals of teaching
    (voice, demonstrating, sequencing, assisting, adjusting)
  • Group practicum
  • Ethics
  • Philosophy, history, and mythology
  • Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras

  • Sanskrit & chanting
  • Asana analysis & alignment

Selena Isles Yoga – What is it?

Many years ago I came to yoga as you know because of traumatic injury that ended my athletic career. Prior to that I used to think yoga something my mom and elders did to keep cool, calm and collected in the face of us children.  I went from rising star to injured athletic “has been”, spiralled into self despair, depression and negative connotations, losing scholarships, friends and everything that I “thought” I was.

However this forced me to rewrite my whole story, self check myself and what I believed to be true of myself; in essence before Brene Brown coined the term I had to lean into the hard stuff and touch the face of vulnerability.  I found Buddhism around this same time and it lifted me out slowly, I vowed at 19, to commit myself to some sort of path. When I finally got to Thailand with no “real” yoga practice other than the asana and meditation I practiced at home with my mom a devote Gita Iyengar student, I was like a fish out of water for the first time. I had to learn to lean in again and be vulnerable – this would be the first of many times.

My time spent with the monks on Wat Suan Moh threw my connotations out the window as we practiced no asana for the first year only mediation, silence and karma/Bhakti yoga. This dismantled me from the inside out – meditation or hours of it on the cold floor did the rest. When we did touch asana I was astounded at the simplicity the practice, I learned the original 84 asana that Shiva stated were “appropriate” for men to learn in this age. For years I was a Nath Hatha acolyte. I believed stillness would uncover everything there was to know and so I practiced this asana according to the Hatha tenants, and meditation in silence and stillness until I could no longer trace the lines of fluidity in the stillness. It was around that time that I started to link the poses to breath, and practice Ashtanga Vinyasa, then I really began to see the microcosm in the macro and vice versa.

I thought to myself and questioned my teachers many times over ”why can we not have a practice that integrates both movement and stillness, alignment and precision with breath and flow”. Many raised eyebrows, and years later I developed my style that integrates the breath based flow of Ashtanga and the precision of Iyengar into a deep, sweaty and integrative mind/body experience, all the while dropping ancient texts and wisdom, using urban vernacular.

 

And that is the simple secret to my practice finding the threads or sutras of the macrocosm and bringing it to everyone. I believe strongly in yoga for everybody and all bodies, and so my practices develop and emanate from this place of stillness juxtaposed against movement and meditation. Being a single mother, and international DJ touring and teaching all year round I am in deep need of my yoga practice; it healed my broken body and mind two decades ago and now keeps my soul intact on a daily basis.
