HOW TO BE IN A RELATIONSHIP WHILE WALKING ON THE SPIRITUAL PATH
Intimacy and passion are what most people wish to keep throughout their relationship. However, they are the first thing we let slip between our fingertips because it takes a conscious effort to nourish them. Intimacy and passion demand attention and awareness, the same two disciplines required for practicing meditation. Spiritual people will often put so much effort into the practice and discipline of a daily meditation, so why not have your love relationship practiced with the same care?… Make your relationship your meditation and your lover the focus of your concentration.
The Five Tibetan Exercises
Zen Meditation- A gateway to freedom
Voice Power Workshop
Shivambu Urine therapy
The liver is the largest internal organ and a blood filter.
When the liver is cleaner, the blood is cleaner. The cells are nourished with blood, which has more space to bring nutrients and oxygen to every part of your body. As a result we are slowing down the aging process and increasing health and vitality.
Liver cleanse is necessary for:
- Anyone who is taking or has taken medication at any point in their life.
- Anyone who is not eating healthy during the year. (Particularly non-organic foods)
- Anyone who lives in polluted urban areas.
- Anyone with allergies
- Anyone suffering from moods swing
- Anyone having problems sleeping
- Anyone who wants to age gracefully and stay young in the spirit.
In this seminar you will learn, step-by-step the process for removing toxins, encrusted colonic materials, and gall bladder stones. These materials accumulate in the body as a result of unhealthy eating habits and/or the consumption of alcohol and prescription or non-prescription drugs.
Low Cost – High Standards
For many years Shakti wish has been to provide free yoga classes to all, and open the door for many people to experience the benefits of yoga without hesitation due to economic factors. This idea always looked almost impossible in the modern world where money is the dominant force, but after Shakti moved to Israel she decided that maybe she can find a model that will work well with her wish. One thing was clear to her: she cannot do this on her own… she will need a community to support this model.
To complete her vision of sharing the wisdom of yoga with those that truly want to experience it, Shakti put all her efforts in reducing the cost of her teacher training courses while keeping her high standards. her hope is that most anyone will be able to afford her comprehensive courses, either for deepening their knowledge of yoga, or to become teachers and share this knowledge throughout the world.

Anatomy And Physiology
shakti is very passionate about the anatomy and physiology of Yoga. Through her years of teaching she has created unique ways to deliver the information and help her students deepen their interest in this fascinating and very important component of Yoga Teacher training. You will never hear her using complicated explanations or daunting medical terminology that make your eyes cross. You will however, see lots of PowerPoint presentations as well as hands-on demonstrations of how the body functions inside and out.
Classic hatha postures are taught in precise detail. For each posture students are encouraged to understand the human anatomy, safety precautions and variations of each posture. Learn to move through the postures of yoga with grace and control. Gain the skills to pass these details on to your students. Learn how to modify postures for different needs and body types. Teach with wisdom and compassion.
The art of teaching yoga is knowing the different variations for the asanas (Yoga poses). By offering the right variation to the right student, you prevent the beginners from hurting themselves and help the more advanced Yogis and Yoginis to still be challenged. By doing so you create a very rich teaching that suits all Yoga students regardless of their abilities. The various Yoga asanas and their multiple variations will be deconstructed and demonstrated in detail.
If individual asanas (postures) make up the vocabulary of yoga, then flows are the sentences and the stories of yoga. You will learn to choose the story you wish to tell your students, a story that is ultimately about themselves. Learn to lead yoga classes that flow like poetry.
Dropping one’s ego is fundamental to teaching yoga. Zen practice greatly helps the yoga teacher step out of his or her shell and adapt to whatever circumstances present themselves. Thus, teaching comes “from the floor” and not from a script in one’s head.
History and Philosophy
An understanding of the evolution of yoga through the millennia aids tremendously in understanding the contemporary practice. Yoga has had a varied and colourful history and has influenced and been influenced by wide-ranging philosophies and world-views. No less colourful are the people who have practiced and taught yoga from Siva and Patanjali to the “yoga celebrities” of the 21st century.
One of the most critical of the teaching modalities is the practical hands on approach to correcting the postures. Proper adjustment is often critical for maintaining safety of the student. It also allows for taking the more advanced students to the next level of their abilities.
Body Language Communication
Approximately 90% of human communication is non-verbal. The ability to read body language effectively is important to assess the students’ level of attention, state of mind and their level of physical comfort. Many students allow their egos to push them beyond their abilities and knowing their limitations. Learning the skills to anticipate behaviour before it happens is an important tool in maintaining safety and cohesiveness of the Yoga class.
Recognizing the fact that people absorb information differently, we give the students tools to convey the instructions in a variety of ways to achieve the desired results. We teach how to recognize students who absorb information primarily verbally, visually or kinesthetically.
Breath is the foundation of all yoga practice. Our life starts and ends with one breath and in between life unfolds itself through our breath. There is a great emphasis in our course on breathing and on how breath can be used to cultivate prana (life force) as a bridge to our higher self.
Shat Karma is an ancient cleansing method that keeps both the mind and body healthy. Workshops are offered during the program; which give students a strong foundation to learn about Shat Karma methods in a safe environment with emphasis on how they can incorporate it in their lives in a practical way.
Small, Interactive, Dynamic, Multimedia Environment
There is no one way to teach yoga. The instructions you learn will evolve through your own experiences and the shared experiences of your group. Just as yoga students learn in different ways, so do yoga teachers. Thus, the Yoga Teacher Training is blend of interactive discussions, hands-on teaching, active analysis of yoga classes, and multimedia presentations.
