The Anjali Yoga Method for
Teaching and Practicing EASE
Rest, Meditation, Mindfulness and Mystery
The Anjali Method is a subtle, full spectrum body of work geared to inspire wellness, mindfulness and the meditation current. To inspire gentleness, suppleness and calm focus, the comprehensive method leverages four principle pillars of practice, these are:
o Anjali Mythical Soulful Slow and Restore
o Anjali Restorative Yoga Practices
o Anjali Meditation and Mindfulness
o Anjali Restorative Ease, Mantra and Meditation
The student experience is rich and benefits from the instructors each being deeply trained and practiced in the above modes of movement and stillness.
Anjali Method practices can be a pure expression of one of the above pillars or a fusion of two or more, depending on the time and focus allotted for the practice session.
Teachers are expertly crafted through their own explorations and studies.
They are each required to study and express a mastery of the four pillars, prior to certification.
Teacher Training Programming Details
Each Teacher Trainee experiences four inspirational immersion weekends. Each weekend is 27 contact hours, in addition: ten hours of supplemental online lectures, practicum, reading and homework. The full program is 108 CEU.
These immersion modules can be taken in any order. Full online content can be made available for those unable to travel to attend.
We recommend a prior 200 yoga teacher training, as this is program boasts an advanced yoga teacher training context,
although it is not required for avid practitioners.
Curious about the 4 immersion weekends,
and what they entail? Look no further…
1. Anjali Mythical Slow Flow and Restore Yoga
This is a thoughtful, rhythmically-aligned practice of pervasive, smooth and soulful vinyasa yoga paired with rejuvenating restorative progressions. The effect is a mat-based experience that creates space for the practitioner to explore hidden intentions and inspirations held in the heart. Each session combines slower-paced, mindful movement with sweet stillness, nourishing pranayama, and guided meditation to cultivate profound calm and focus in the practitioner.
Each class session weaves a myth, tale or mystical inspiration drawn from the instructor’s passionate connection to an ancient, world-wisdom tradition. The elements of story, lesson and archetype are thoughtfully woven through the postures, sequences, pranayama and meditations. The result feeds intellect, insight, and inspiration.
Instructors of Anjali Mythical Slow Flow and Restore are required to become wise and steeped in their choice of world-wisdom, such as, but not limited to: Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Christianity, Shamanism, and Kabbalah Mysticism. This ensures that each voice of our method is passionate, unique, diverse and inspired.
2. Anjali Restorative Yoga
The Anjali Restorative Yoga Teacher will be able to thoughtfully nurture a practitioner, or group of practitioners, through each of the following Anjali Restorative Yoga Sequences:
o Bhagavad Gita – Anjali Restorative Inversions
o Shanti Shakti – Anjali Sequence for Spinal Health
o Ganupati – Anjali Restorative Twists and Forward Folds
o Chakra – Anjali Hip Stability and Flexibility
Each Anjali Restorative sequence inspires a set progression of quieting, prop supported postures. Each set sequence leverages the major teachings of an ancient text, archetype or mystical concept. However, Anjali teachers are encouraged to become accomplished within the texts and teachings and then to draw and pair a unique theme, selected from their mastery of a world wisdom tradition. This conveys the set sequence material, guided meditations, and imagery with authentic and wise inspiration. The effect is mind-blowing and profoundly settling.
3. Anjali Meditation and Mindfulness
An Anjali Restorative Yoga Teacher will be a steeped practitioner of one of the three methods of meditation:
o Anjali Sense-Based Meditation
o Anjali Mystic Meditation
o Anjali Breath-Based Meditation
Exposed to each of the three above practices, each student teacher will select the one that feels the most authentic and personally beneficial. Each student teacher will engage a powerful and long-term relationship with this method. From dedication, commitment an accomplishment, within the method, will produce an authentic ability to teach and inspire the meditation practice in others.
The immersion into Anjali Mindfulness will reveal the stuck spaces of cognitive bias, fears, doubts and worries that stumble the practitioner and student teacher in the day-to-day. The work of this intensive and body of work will produce the grace that reveals the raw, real beauty and abilities to teach with one’s true heart and voice. This weekend will change your life, guaranteed. Expect to emerge as more of yourself, more able, more willing, more confident and more confidently vulnerable.
4. Anjali Restorative Ease, Mantra and Meditation
An Anjali Restorative Yoga Teacher will become a steeped practitioner and natural access giver to several mantra practices. These practices can be chanted live or accessed and used as recordings to supplement restorative breathing practices, meditation and practices of guided ease. Ease teacher in this program will master his, her or their own ability to share:
o Appropriately chosen and sequenced restorative yoga postures based on practitioner need.
o Perfectly guided and supported restorative breathing practices.
o Access and use of mythical and mystical mantra, using the rhythms, meaning and determination of each mantra to support and ease-filled practice.
