The Program: Module 1 – Foundations

1. Context of Modern Yoga & the Viniyoga Tradition:

Yoga Sutras and texts for Yoga training
Learning from those who came before

We will set the content of this work by learning the historical and philosophical context of yoga, with a specific focus on the Viniyoga tradition and the lineage of T. Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar (the Lineage Teacher for Viniyoga).  Tammy is passionate about decolonizing Yoga teaching to help participants understand the difference between cultural appropriation and honoring the Indian roots of the tradition that has evolved all over the world.  Authentic Yoga is both rooted and tradition and innovating to honor our current state of being.

2. Art & Science of Sequencing & Adaptation:

The Viniyoga Tradition is one that does not prescribe a single practice or approach to practice for all students.  On the contrary, the individuality of ones practice is the foundation of this tradition.  There are no single solutions or approaches.  In fact, it is only through self-awareness, education, and relationships that we can be empowered to understand what Yoga Practice means for each of us.  However, the ancient tradition of Yoga is full of building blocks that we can use to create our unique practice, and on top of these building blocks, we add the unique bits of ourselves and lived experiences.  The result is refreshingly new ways to Practice that have the flavor of ancient tradition immeshed in them.

Therefore, an important feature of this training is the deep exploration oft Sequencing and Adaptation of Yoga Techniques.   The Viniyoga tradition approaches these topics masterfully, and give participants tremendous freedom to fully express their selves and their vision through sequencing unique practices.  Additionally, we will practice the art of drawing out practices in a simple way using stick figures and notes that can facilitate communication.

3. Biomechanics of Asana & Pranayama:

Yoga training with anatomy
No Bones about it

We will learn some basic applied anatomy and physiology to understand how we move safely in gravity, and how Yoga techniques impact our nervous system. Knowing how the BodyMind works  gives one freedom from dogmatic approaches to practice and teaching.

Memorizing names is less important than understanding how the BodyMind functions as a unit.  However, naturally, there will be some theory to help us create a vocabulary when we talk about different parts of the body.

4. Introduction to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali:

The training provides an introduction to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, which is a living text and road-map for the mind.  We will explore the first chapter and touch on details of practice in the snd chapter. Participants will also explore chanting the sutras in Sanskrit in the traditional Vedic method.  In addition to developing a relationship with some of the Sutra, Tammy will also use inspirations and guidance from other sources from ancient to modern literature.


5. Foundations of Personal Practice:

Yoga training with FreedomThis aspect of the training focuses on understanding what “Yoga” looks like for you on a daily basis and how to cultivate and maintain a living practice.  When we become well rooted in “returning to ourselves” regularly, we can more deeply regulate our system, be more present in the moment, and more deeply impact the world around us,

We will turn towards ancient sources for inspiration such as 5-kosha model, chakra model, Gunas, and the Yoga Sutras.  We will also invoke lessons from more recent teachers through literature and history.

I will encourage students to be creative and share their work as we practice the systems on which practices are created.  Our community is a divine source of spirit that we will build and sustain together.
