Philosophy & Asana: Merging of the Mind and Body, Maya Yoga Teacher Training

This training taught by Nicki Doane will focus on the more subtle internal aspects of Yoga Sadhana or practice which include the workings and gyrations of the mind.  Nicki has a deep love and respect for the yoga sutras of Patanjali and is fascinated by how they continue to apply and relate to everyday life as well as to our experience on the mat.  In this training you will experience what it means to intertwine yoga philosophy with asana and how it can deepen your personal practice.  We will study the yoga sutras of Patanjali as they relate to asana and you will learn how to teach from your authentic self; bringing a potency to your teaching that is uniquely yours.  This 100 Hour Maya Yoga Teacher Training Module can be applied to the 200 and 300 hour Yoga Alliance certification, as well as continuing education.

Some topics covered will include Asana, Pranayama, Mudra, Bandhas, Anatomy,  Restorative Yoga, Chanting, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Yoga Psychology, Bhagavad Gita, Adjustments, Alignment of both physical and subtle body, Meditation, and Svadhyaya ( the study of the self).

Week 1: Sunday through Friday 8am – 3pm

Week 2: Sunday through Saturday 8am – 3pm

Cost: $1500

VINO VINYASA : A MAYA YOGA RETREAT WITH NICKI DOANE

Looking to spend a week relaxing in the south of Italy, doing yoga, eating amazing food, and enjoying the “Bella Vita” (the beautiful life) that the Mediterranean is so known for? The pace of life is slower in Italy, so it’s the perfect place to slow down and savor this incredible yoga retreat. Join Nicki Doane in Puglia Italia for a week of relaxing, inspiring, and fun yoga classes. The schedule of the retreat will be relaxed with classes in the morning and late afternoon. The rest of the day can be spent as you like; eating, napping, exploring, bike-riding, relaxing by the pool, hiking, or just lying around and reading a great book. Maybe you want to take a technology break and use this time to connect with real people doing real things. There is something special about living together as a group for a week, practicing yoga, sharing food, talking, and drinking wine together.  This yoga retreat is a way to reconnect not only with yourself but with your practice again. Sometimes life gets so busy that we don’t make time for the important things in life. Use this retreat to get back into your practice and be inspired to continue once you get back home.

What's Included:

  • 7 Nights Accommodations 
  • 3 Whole Foods Meals Each Day
  • Round-Trip Group Transport to/from the Airport
  • Daily Yoga Practices
  • Personal Retreat Time (having time to nap, explore, walk, read, and just be)

Accommodations

This retreat center is located in Puglia, in the southern Italy. The NY Post calls this region magical and Lonely Planet put it in its 2014 must-see places list. This area is full of historic and cultural sites. Beautiful beaches are easily accessible. Martina Franca, the closest town, has a particularly beautiful old town surrounded by stone walls with prominent Baroque gates leading to piazzas and narrow, winding streets.

Back to School Asana Intensive at Maya Yoga on Maui

Join Nicki for an inspired week of yoga at home on Maui.  Many of us let our yoga practice slide in the summer as we spend more time outside and playing.  September has a way of easing us back into work/school mode and this week's intensive is designed to do the same.  Nicki and Maya Yoga are known for teaching students and not just postures.  Every intensive's direction is determined by the students who show up. Having three hours to practice gives plenty of time for a slow intelligent start to the class and allows ample time for asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, and the best pose of all, Savasana!

These asana intensives are a great way to kick start your practice or get re-inspired if you need it. Since the workshop is in the morning from 8-11am, it is a great way to combine your yoga practice with a week long vacation on Maui! 

Remember Kama'ainas get special pricing ...
