200 HR – 1 month intensive – YOGA TEACHER TRAINING – With emphasis on AYURVEDA in  KERALA, India
 FEBRUARY 2016. 

We are “Yoga Alliance Certified”
Only 10 spots available.
Om Shanti

Please have a look at our curriculum HERE and if you have any queries pls drop us a line at: lily@lilypodyoga.com

For anyone who is contemplating on “Becoming a Yoga Teacher” this is an epic opportunity to explore not only the roots of Yoga from a classical point of view but also to visit the place of birth of its sister science: AYURVEDA.

One month long teacher trainings are intense in many more ways than one, simultaneously providing you with the full spectrum of the practices in the sense that you will be living them day in and day out. From the moment you rise an hour before sun rise to sit in meditation and feel nature come alive, to the second you drop in bed from exhaustion from a full days work. Worth every second of it.
This program has been designed also for those with a keen heart for therapy as we focus on the therapeutic aspects of Yoga by fully understanding its connection to Ayurveda and how they are meant to be taught together not apart.
“A Yogi lifestyle is an Ayurvedic lifestyle,
An Ayurvedic lifestyle is a Yogic lifestyle”.

The course will take place in a traditional Ayurvedic retreat/clinic which has been so for many generations.
Ayurvedic treatments will be available as well as an opportunity to enrol in PANCHA KARMA. The Ayurvedic approach to deep cleansing.

We will also visit the famous “Back waters” by boat which is a must do when one visits this part of the precious Mother Earth.

An adventure of a lifetime.

Om.

NAMASTE
AYURVEDIC TIPS TO KEEP U COOL:Taste: Bitter, sweet, and astringent tastes calm pitta, so eat more foods like apples, grapes, zucchini, lettuce, cucumbers, cilantro, and fresh organic dairy. Eliminate or reduce your intake of alcohol, heavy meats, and fried, oily, salty, spicy, and sour foods. Instead of salt, use fennel seeds, coriander, fenugreek, and fresh lime juice for seasoning.

Touch: Wear breathable natural fibers that have a cooling effect, such as cotton and linen.

Smell: Treat yourself to a fresh bouquet of tuberose, gardenia, or freesia. Or dab on a diluted essential oil: Try rose, jasmine, geranium, vetiver, or ylang ylang.

Sight: Take a break from work that requires intense visual focus. Gaze at summer’s verdant trees and meadows. Surround yourself with cooling hues of pearl white, blue, green, silver, and gray.

Sound: Listen to flute music and devotional songs to calm your heart and soothe your spirit.

Pranayama: Try cooling pranayama techniques, like Sitali and Sitkari, which are done by inhaling through the mouth and exhaling through the nose.

To do Sitali, sit in a comfortable position, make an O shape with your mouth, and curl the tongue lengthwise. Then, as B.K.S. Iyengar instructs in Light on Pranayama, “draw in air…as if drinking with a straw and fill the lungs completely.” Withdraw the tongue, close the mouth, and hold the breath for five to 10 seconds. Exhale through the nose. Repeat this cycle for five to 10 minutes and then rest in Savasana (Corpse Pose).

If you can’t curl your tongue, try Sitkari, which is similar to Sitali except that the tongue is kept flat. Part the lips and allow the tip of the tongue to protrude slightly. Practice gently and without intensity early or late in the day, when the air is cool.
