SUMMER YTT INTENSIVE: Apply Now for 2017

June 15 – July 5 2017 at Meadowlark Yoga:

Take that keen interest in Yoga one step further, with a 21-day immersion in the transformational theory and practice of Patanjali’s yoga, and start learning to share your practice with others.

The 200Hr Summer Intensive is an immersive program designed for those with a serious interest in the progressive practice of Yoga. Join Meadowlark Yoga founding teacher, Karen Kirkness and contributing faculty members Sarah Hatcher, Nadine Watton, and Joanne Ewen, for a 3-week Immersion looking at the physicality of Yoga as an integrated body-mind discipline. Go deeper into your personal practice and learn the key fundamentals of assisting, adjusting and teaching other students of Yoga.

The Summer Intensive is 50% theory and 50% practice based on the lineage of Krishnamacharya, the asana basis for all dynamic modern Yoga as we know it. Learn about the origins of modern postural Yoga, and focus on the Ashtanga system in the method developed in Mysore by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.
Practitioners can expect the following:
  • contextualisation of modern asana practice – addressing the question “what is yoga?”
  • basic pranayama
  • introduction to the mechanics of Surya Namaskara A & B and the Ashtanga Standing sequence
  • fundamental Indian philosophy centred on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
  • chanting
  • basic Sanskrit
  • study of foundational texts such as the Hatha Yoga Pradipika
  • in-depth anatomical discussion
  • Asana “research” techniques and supportive methods to nurture body and mind
  • Mindfulness
  • practical sessions breaking down the basics of breath, bandha, drishti
  • teaching practice, feedback, and critical appraisal
  • adjustments and assisting Yoga Asana
This YTT Intensive is suitable for practitioners with an established Ashtanga practice. Most of the 21 days start at 7am and finish by 4pm, with a few exceptions. There are flexible Makeup Policy options in case of any attendance issues; however, for best results the successful applicant is in good health, not over-committed, and can attend all 21 days of the Intensive as scheduled.

Please see our Pricing, Terms & Conditions Page for full details and links to Application.
