2013 Sage Hills Radiant Shala Hatha Teacher's Training
For thousands of year, the teachings and science of yoga and meditation have been practiced all over the world. This amazing technology has gained unprecedented acknowledgement in the Western world as a mainstream path to Wellness, Relaxation and a dynamic Holistic life style. It is vital that humanity heed the calling of "Simplify, Meditate, Become Conscious and Awake, and recognize that Humanity is intrically interconnected energetically through our Souls". The more we practice and simply live as our True Selves, our world and reality as we may know it will shift and change to a Peaceful, Abundant and Cooperative existance. There are many rivers that lead to the ONE Ocean - and the river of Yoga is a Mighty River indeed!
Melanie's richly diverse background in the teachings of Hatha Yoga and Meditation (Integral Yoga, Kripalu Yoga, Tibetan Buddhist Meditation, Iyengar Yoga) provides a solid and strong foundation for the students attending this training to successfully create a career and life changing positive lifestyle creed, creating infinite possibilities as a Teacher of Yoga. Her personal core teachings are rooted in Kripalu Yoga and Meditation; a gentle, insightful practice that becomes a meditation in movement. She has studied Therapeutic Yoga; Women's Yoga, which includes Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga; Restorative Yoga as taught by Judith Lassiter; Yin Yoga as taught by Paul Grilley; the tradition of Intelligent Alignment as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar, and has been personally taught Meditation by Geshe Dorjee, Tibetan Buddhist Monk.
Our world is changing and the social norms that have defined us have completely shifted therefore people are easily stressed, depressed and anxious. The methodology and technology of Yoga is a beautiful science that teaches a clear, simple and thorough way of life and health that improves, clears, strengthens your mind, your body and re-identifies you with your energy and Spirit. As you transform and elevate through your experience during our time together, others around you will also be benefited. It's truly amazing when you begin your first step on this path, everything starts to change, in a positive growth and awareness manner.
