Free Introduction to Buddhi Vana Teacher Training Waterbury Center Vermont

In this free workshop, Sharon we will practice yoga and meditation together and then Sharon will introduce the philosophy that informs the curriculum for the teacher training. A yoga teacher training program is a significant financial and energetic investment and this workshop is an opportunity to explore this transformative ten-month program to make sure it meets your personal and professional development goals. There will be time to ask questions about the training schedule, graduation requirements, required and suggested readings, or anything else you wish to ask or discuss.

Buddhi Vana Training Philosophy and Focus
This teacher training program reflects on Sharon's dedication to nature and outdoor education and over 25- years of meditation and yoga practice and teaching in this innovative approach to yoga studies. Sharon also brings a significant academic background in East Asian religion and philosophy and anthropological theory. Buddhi, in Sanskrit, means "mind" in the sense of our human intellectual faculty for reason, discernment, judgement, and understanding. Vana means forest in Sanskrit, but it is also a feminine Indian name suggesting deep silence and ultimate bliss. The program offers an emphasis on meditation and the spiritual aspects of practice. The name of the training reflects the intersections of nature, subtle energy, and mind rather than an attempt at the creation of a new style of yoga. Buddhi Vana program graduates will be able to design, practice, and teach a spectrum of various levels of yoga and meditation classes including asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, and mindful movement. We draw upon Chinese and Tibetan energetic body anatomy, elements and light of the subtle body, classical Buddhist philosophical and instructional texts, and apply these to the physical postures (asana) and breathing practices (pranayama) of yoga.
