2 Programs for Deep Immersion


Program 1:

Yoga Deep Immersion/Teacher Training Program January '11

So you’ve been practicing yoga for a while now. You go to classes regularly and you really enjoy it. But there’s something missing. Something fundamental in your practice that you need to investigate and expose yourself more to the depths of yoga, and you need someone and something to take you there. You’ve gotten to a point where you can go no further with the teacher(s) and the places you’ve been. You want to expand into a better you but you feel that you haven’t found the place and/or person who could take you there…

If you want to delve into the depths of the practice: physically, emotionally, mentally, and must come to Shama-Bhakti Yoga Centre.

So you have the notion that you want to teach yoga. There are all sorts of programs out there, sure. But which one is for you? How can you sift through all this information and get to a point where you can feel good about your decision. Well, that depends on what you’re looking for… if you are looking to learn asana names and maybe a few techniques in practice and what to say when you are teaching, then a number of places can teach you that. If you want to delve into the depths of the practice: physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, and if you are the kind of person who thinks: …surely I must have the experience of the breadth of yoga before I can teach others. I must go to the depths of the practice that I will want to teach to others. I want to be the kind of teacher who inspires because I’ve been there.” Then you must come to Shama-Bhakti Yoga Centre.

Whether you want to teach Yoga or not, now that you have embarked on this journey, there comes a time when you must immerse yourself into your own practice and self-transformation to be able to move and grow. It is in our nature to want to effect good, healthy change in our lives. Maybe now is the time to do that.

This program is like no other. Yoga is about self-realization and this course is designed to take you to that deeper part of you!

This program is like no other. Yoga is about self-realization and this course is designed to take you to that deeper part of you! For sure, you will learn the names of the asana, the history of yoga's beginnings, philosophical terms and concepts, anatomy of the body and of the asana, etc. But where will you learn how to LIVE IT!!!! Here at Shama-Bhakti Yoga Centre, that's where! If you have gone as far as you can with the teachers and places you have been going to and you are seeking more depth and understanding then look no further. Come in and see what we can offer you.

Come and join us in this amazing journey into yoga and gain a deeper understanding of yoga and you.

The bulk of the program will be experienced as a group. The rest of the program involves self-study: some reading and assignments, attending classes and seeing the director for private sessions twice per month. You can choose to what degree you would like to be involved. Please come in to speak with Christine about how you can get involved.

This program is also open to individuals who would like to do some training either to deepen their knowledge and experience of yoga in their lives or to become a teacher. (Please consult pages Module 1 and Module 2).

If you have any questions you may email me for further clarification.

Teacher Training

Teacher trainees must attend all components of both modules laid out by the centre to receive your designation of 200 hr transcript. Please talk to the director of the program for clarification.


A part of becoming a Teacher is to first become a student which means to immerse yourself into your own practice and self. The program has been developed into 2 parts: Module 1 and Module 2.

Yoga postures are just ONE part of the full practice of yoga. This deep immersion/training gives you the tools to affect your own growth and provides the space in which to experiment and practice.

Your growth is influenced by how much you involve yourself in the program; the longer the process, the deeper the impact the teachings will have on you. Therefore the training is laid out in 2 modules of deep immersion and training. The first, 10 months, meeting once a month for formal classes and during the month self practice and study, the second, 3 months weekly meetings and asana practice. Please refer to the next pages for detailed dates, times and content. (Self-asana practice will be initially based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa System.)
