Description

Discovering yoga in depth

The Tantric Alchemy Institute (TAI) provides a 300 hour Yoga Alliance certification upon completion of their classically scripted curriculum based around the ancient tantric paradigm once found in India.

TAI provides a compendium of tools as catalysts for human evolution by integrating wisdom found in the sciences of Samkhya philosophy; Hatha Yoga (asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, yantra, mantra), Ayurveda (the science of health), Vaastu (creating harmonious surroundings), and Jyotisha (classical techniques of divination). By incorporating these ancient sciences into one's contemporary life, vibrant physical health, equanimous mental and emotional states, the refinement and expansion of consciousness, spiritual growth, and real empowerment will harmoniously unfold. When this knowledge is applied with focused will, altruistic intention, and sincere discipline; exponential results will be acquired.

Yoga is one of the six classic darshanas of India. The word darshana means both “point of view” and literally “to see”. All of the darshanas share the purpose of supporting the human endeavour to achieve that progress which leads to liberation. All of the darshanas are woven from the same basic fabric to explain the nature of the Universe. Samkhya and Yoga, two of the six, are very closely woven together, and Samkhya also provides the foundation for understanding Ayurveda, Jyotisha, and Vaastu.

Study of Samkhya, Ayurveda, Sanskrit, Vaastu, Jyotisha, Dhuni Puja and Viraja Homa will together provide a strong foundation for teachers in comprehending the concepts of classic Yoga Shastra which are so deeply intertwined within these sister subjects and rituals. These subjects will be integrated into the science of Hatha Yoga which will be explored through asana practice and posture clinics, the art of sequencing and specialized teaching methods, yoga nidra, yoga therapy, the detailed study of pranayama techniques and benefits, meditation, bandhas, mudras, mantra and chanting, western anatomy and anatomy of the energy body. This YTT will give students the fundamentals of the vidyas which in India are traditionally considered basic essentials for a qualified teacher in any of the classic subjects.

This training is for those who have already completed a 200 hour level training or by permission from the Director of the program. This advanced 300 hour teacher training will enhance the scope of knowledge for even the most ardent practitioners.

Location

This wildlife and yoga retreat sanctuary is perched approximately 1000 yards slightly above the Pacific Ocean in Cabuya at the southernmost tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, which is one of only five Blue Zones in the entire world by having a large concentration of centenarians living in the area. The place is only two miles from Costa Rica's first national nature preserve, Reserva Cabo Blanco, and neighbors to the quaint artistic beach-town of Montezuma and the surf town of Mal Pais and Santa Teresa.

The Sanctuary at Two Rivers gets her name from its land beginning at the junction of two rivers. In ancient India, this was called a Sangama. This point is revered as an auspicious place to build temples and ashrams because of the positive energy that literally flows over, around, and through this matrix of topography. Furthermore, set amongst hundreds of uninhabited tropical-dry forest acres, the private secluded property of 40 acres encloses manicured tropical gardens and Jurassic jungle, making it ideal for both inner and outer exploration. That’s nearly three acres of the Earth per guest to enjoy, enliven, and enlighten.

The guests will be introduced to the bountiful gifts of Mother Nature from the moment of their arrival as they walk from the car-park for 20 minutes over jungle and river paths to reach the grounds of the sanctuary. Nestled between two rivers with waterfalls that flow year-round, the private park is home to countless species of flora and fauna including exotic mammals, birds, butterflies, reptiles, and amphibians that are common to Central America.

Naga Nath

Naganath is the Founder of the Tantric Alchemy Institute. An ardent yogi for the past 22 years, Naga has completed over 1000 hours of yoga teacher training with Shiva Rea (her Advanced Teacher Training Program), Rod Stryker, and teachers from the Bihar School of Yoga. In 2004, Naga studied Ayurveda at The Ayurvedic Academy held at Bastyr University in Washington and began extensive studies in Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) with the aid of his close friend and mentor in various occult sciences, Dr. Robert Svoboda. It was Naga's devotion and earnestness that propelled and guided him to find a strong karmic resonance in Ancient Tantra, eventually being initiated by Shri Kapilnath into the International Nath Order, a modern Nath Tantric sect established by Shri Gurudev Mahendranath with its roots in the Adi-Nath Sampradaya and Uttara Kaula Sampradayas of which Shri Mahendranath was holder of parampara and Guru. The Guru tradition and initiation of the International Nath Order includes wisdom teachings from Hindu, Soto Zen and Taoist sources plus practices rediscovered by the science and yoga of meditation, contemplation, mantra and ritual. After managing a well-respected yoga studio in Venice Beach, California, Naga recognized a void in the western yoga scene and was compelled to create a yoga school which incorporates the classic yogic sciences under one umbrella in order to honor and keep the torch of the ancient yogis alight as well as to aid and advance western yoga students in these classic wisdom sciences.

Gheranda Samhita

Gheranda Samhita is a slightly later text that is another famous treatise on Hatha Yoga. We will focus on the Dhyana Chapter of this text, which has a particularly elegant breakdown of the range of different types of meditation that we can employ in our practice. This breakdown is especially useful for the teacher, who may want to use variations on these practices as guided meditations in classes that they teach.

First, we will read the basic advice that the text presents for those who wish to undertake a Hatha Yoga practice, including the qualities of the Yogi which lead to success in practice. We will then explore the Mudras, practices which work with both mind and body to unlock our inner energy and potential.

Ayurveda for the Yoga Practitioner

This will be an introduction to the theories and practices of Ayurveda. Beginning with the fundamental concepts of Ayurveda, such as Doshas and Prakriti. It will move on to how we can use this knowledge to live our lives with more balance and insight into our own health. Daily practices for maintaining health and balance will be explained in detail.

Introduction to Jyotish (Vedic Astrology)

Jyotisha, or the Jyotir Vidya, is the Science of Light. More specifically, it demonstrates our interconnectedness within a holistic-cosmic paradigm where the aphorism “As of Above, So Below” is it’s consummate summation. Ancient Yogis studied the night’s sky in such depth and breadth that they intuited the qualities of the planets and luminaries and how they affect our individual karmic patterns which in turn produce calculable probabilities. Over millennia a plethora of data has been analyzed, codified, quantified and qualified allowing the Jyotishi, one who is possessed by the Jyotir Vidya, to use the individual’s birth chart to map potentialities to assist the individual on making her or his life’s journey that much more efficient, effective and fulfilling. This classic system of divination emphasizes that at times it’s better to sit and wait or at other moments to strike out quickly, seizing or avoiding certain currents of supportive or obstructing energies in order to make the best use of one’s time/energy during this lifetime and to be as successful as possible with whatever endeavor one sets out to achieve.

Learning Objective

In this introduction to Jyotish, our YTT students will learn the basics of Jyotish by using their own birth charts as study material and learn how to apply this information to assist themselves and their students on their life’s journey.

Vaastu

Vaastu Vidya is India’s classical Science of Form and Space, or spatial orientation. Through understanding the energies of the four cardinal and four primary inter-cardinal directions, the five MahaBhutas (Great Elements) and the nine Grahas (the Planets), one can arrange any delineated structure to optimize the flow of Prana, or life force, within said structure. Vaastu’s utilization will breathe life into space to get the most positive benefits out of any physical construct.

Learning Objective

Students will use their own home, office, or yoga studio as the template for learning about and applying this classic Indian Shastra to increase their spatial awareness resulting in better harmony and efficiency in one’s life and surroundings. Vaastu is a great complimentary science to Jyotisha and Ayurveda.

Sanskrit

Understanding of Classical Sanskrit for a dedicated practitioner of Yoga is like a doctor of medicine studying Latin. Familiarity with this ancient language of the sages will enhance ones relationship with the wisdom held in classical texts, the significance of asana names and the deeper meaning of mantra.

Learning Objective

This class will review the basics of Sanskrit pronunciation. The practical concerns of pronouncing pose names, terms, and chants will be addressed as well as the deeper esoteric elegance and power of the Sanskrit language. Key vocabulary for Yoga practitioners and teachers will be presented and analyzed, so that the students will understand the mythical significance of these terms. Students will learn to properly recite some of the basic and widely used chants of Yoga.

Manas, Buddhi, Ahamkara and the Cittavrittis

The role of manas and its functions in ruling and organizing the senses will be presented, the role of Citta and the samskaras relationship to Citta will be placed in the context of Manas and Buddhi. The distinction between that which is knowing and willing and that which is subliminal or Samskara will be demonstrated. The 5 categories of Cittavrittis will be presented both from the Samkhya and the Yoga Sutras. The source of the mind, Ahamkara will be presented, and its attributes, functions and relationships to the Gunas will be outlined. The complete matrix of Inner Faculties will be presented in reference to their categorization as either Sattva, Raja or Tamas Guna. Yogasutras and other source references will be used to demonstrate the practical application of these Tattvas to the goal of Yoga, and to the tools used by Yoga to achieve the goal.

Learning Objective

Students will be able to name the constituent components of the Cittavrittis, and place them in correct relationship with Manas, Buddhi, and Ahamkara, and turn be able to identify appropriate technique and tools from the Yoga Sutras, Sivasvarodaya, and other classic materials to ensure optimal development of Manas and Ahamkara in the pursuit of Yoga. Anticipated techniques include pranayama, asana, tratak, and various meditation forms, including use of mantra, yantra, and general tantra. Students will understand the distribution of the external and internal faculties amongst the three gunas, and be able to apply these to assessment of both individual students (capacity, barriers, and potential) and to their own predominant strengths and weaknesses as teachers.

Introduction to Svara Yoga

Svara Yoga is the Yoga of the breath or, more specifically, the Yoga of attending to how the breath flows in the nostrils. By noticing differences in these flows, we can learn to attune ourselves to our physiology and we can also learn how to use our Yoga practice to create shifts in these breath patterns.

Learning Objective

Understand the basic concepts of Svara Yoga and its application to the many limbs of Yoga.

Yogic Diet and Healthy Eating Practices

Students will gain true understanding of nourishment, ahimsa, food energetics and the importance of mindful eating from the perspectives of Yoga, western nutrition science, Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine. Our lunches and dinners will be an experience in eating as an art form and as a spiritual practice.

Learning Objective

I was taught in a Buddhist meditation program that if one can control their mouth, they can control their mind. This topic is a method for students to understand, experience and feel how food effects them on the levels of body, mind and spirit.

Practicum

The concluding instructional block will use student led projects to plan teaching content, teaching environments and teaching style based on analysis of their own characteristics as analyzed through the lens of Ayurveda and Hasta Samudrika, and their own Janma Kundali. This will be applied to an hour long class that each student will teach which incorporates advanced topics covered like Ayurveda, Jytoisha and Vaastu. Class time will be used to prepare this project and students will break into pairs and small groups to practice teaching advanced concepts related to asana, pranayama, mudra, bandhas and sequencing will receive feedback on their delivery.

Learning Objective

Students will incorporate new found knowledge and integrate all topics covered in the training into their teachings.

Posture Clinic & Practice Teaching- students will be teaching Asana, Pranayama and Mantra chanting with partners and in groups, openly giving & receiving feedback.

Each student must create & teach a 2 hour workshop to be critiqued by instructors and peers.
