The Yoga Immersion Program (YIP) at Whole Yoga is for:
• Yoga students looking to deepen their practice and understanding of themselves through yoga
• Yoga students interested in becoming yoga instructors (Students who take YIP have an excellent base to start Teacher Training with, and we recommend that aspiring teachers take YIP)
• Students at any level, including beginners, who would like a strong foundation for attending drop in classes
• Yoga instructors who wish to focus on their personal practice
The Yoga Immersion Program is comprised of practice and study of the first four limbs of Patanjali's "8 limbs of Yoga", Yama, Niyama, Asana, and Pranayama. This class is a prerequisite to our Hatha Yoga Teacher Training program.
The Asana portion of the program will teach you the foundation of 40+ poses. Included are: Standing Poses, Forward Bends, Back Bends, Twists, Inversions, Balance Poses and Sun Salutations. You will learn how to practice all the postures with proper alignment and safe body mechanics. You will receive personal instruction and feedback. We encourage you to take notes and ask questions throughout class.
Pranayama & Philosophy
The Pranayama segment will introduce you to new breathing techniques that intertwine with practicing Asana and Meditation. Pranayama will become a tool that you use to manage stress, release tension, increase your ability to focus and also strengthen your asana practice.
The Philosophy segment will introduce you to the “8 limbs of Yoga” taken from the classical system of yoga known as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. We focus on the Yamas and Niyamas, which provide guidance for relating to others, the world and to yourself. We practice and learn experientially, with activities to keep the learning in our bodies and hearts rather than only our heads.
