Online TOT Class
with Brahmini (Jules) Watson
Saturday, 27th May
3pm to 4.30pm
TOT stands for Teaching Online Therapeutics.
Designed by Gurudevi to teach online during Covid, some of our teachers are now qualified to bring this method to you in specially planned online classes.
Experience the deep inner changes when you are not in the classroom receiving hands on adjustments.
These powerful, therapeutic pose variations use complementary muscles to get spinal release. You use abs, legs and arms along with breath and movement in ways you haven't in your basic poses. All of this helps you to get deeper openings in your body and provides deeper experiences in subsequent poses and in your final Shavasana.
"I liked the use of breath and movement; it kept me focused with a deep inner body awareness and a calm state after the pose. Feeling the use of my hamstrings has been beneficial to my walk and standing."
"I felt the changes having an effect on my whole body, my body felt long and at ease. I felt my collar bones soften and widen with the release going up into my neck and head."

Foundations Teacher Trainer
Learn the foundational poses that reveal yoga’s promise, to know who and what you really are — Consciousness.
This course provides a deep experience and the information you need to practice yoga on your own at home or to share your yoga with others.
Whether you are a new yogi, an experienced Svaroopi or coming from another yoga style, learn how to get the most benefit from your practice. Refined techniques and a clear understanding of how this yoga works show you the way.

By the opening of your spinal channel, you attain the bliss of Consciousness.
Discover the most important poses of Svaroopa® Yoga, the Primary Spinal Openers. These poses are used at all levels of practice, from introductory through advanced classes. Take them home with you or use Foundations as the prerequisite course for our Teacher Training programs.
During the course, your knowledge of each pose builds day by day, pose by pose. This is especially true while working in partner-pairs, so you give and receive coaching and adjustments in every pose. Our comprehensive handouts help you learn the poses inside and out, as well as provide the basis for your practice or working with others.
Even if you don't want to teach, you understand how to design classes or your own yoga practice session in order to get the most benefit in the shortest time. And you'll know how to help others with customized alignments and props for them to get maximum results with minimum effort.
Beyond the poses, the course has time every day for chanting and meditation, two of yoga’s most important practices. You’ll be deeply saturated in the flow of Grace that permeates the Svaroopa® practice. This benefits you and those you might teach.
"I found the Foundations program to be very comprehensive. I have a better understanding of the alignments needed to deepen the poses in my own practice. It also piqued my interest in teaching the basic poses to others." - Eva C.

Intro to Gentle Yoga Training
27th August to 2nd September, 2023
with Swamis Shrutananda and Prajnananda
"A teacher meets students where they are at and moves them to a whole new place within themselves. In your Gentle Yoga classes, you lead them into getting younger, happier, healthier and more joyful. And they discover bliss."– Gurudevi Nirmalananda
Your students, friends and family members might have significantly limited flexibility, serious pain or illness, or be recovering from an injury or surgery. You want to help but are not sure what they need. Gain the tools you need to safely and effectively work with ‘outside-the-bell-curve’ students. Learn special modifications for these students’ needs as well as your own. Help them find a new lease on life, supporting their transformation in how they think and feel about their body.
"This training has given me a new layer/depth of understanding. Having new poses to teach and use in my own practice is exciting. It is a perfect course to continue and expand my knowledge". – Beverly M.
Begin with what you learned in Foundations of Svaroopa® Yoga. This is why you must teach four Intro Yoga classes before you come to the Gentle training — so you are fresh and full of the joy of sharing Svaroopa® yoga.
Simply teach a friend or family member a few poses. Do it 4 times. It can even be the same poses every time.
Pick someone who needs yoga but is not a Gentle Yogi, as you won’t have those skills until you’ve done the Gentle training.
Share the Magic 4 with them, or the Four on the Floor or other poses. Then lead them through a Guided Awareness in Shavasana.
They’ll love it! And so will you.
After your training, you will personalise poses and adjustments for seniors and for those recovering from illness or injury. You know how to design and present a six-week series for them, in which they get rapid and dramatic improvements in their body, mind and heart. They are often able to mainstream into regular classes once they’ve completed your Gentle Yoga series.
This course reinstates your current standing.
