February 15th – 16th, 2020: Presentation Skills and Workshop Design for Yoga Professionals

“SHARING”

The Yoga Institute is very excited about this new offering with Lucy Karnani 

A 2-day experiential skill development workshop

As a yoga teacher or a yoga therapist, you may be asked to give a presentation about what you do, speak at a conference, or to provide short courses on topics in which you have expertise. Or, you may decide that you want to start offering workshops to your students or to train other yoga teachers and therapists.

If so, Presentation Skills and Workshop Design will provide all the information that is required to plan, organise and professionally deliver your presentations or workshops. As a result of attending this workshop you will learn ways to shorten your preparation time, tailor your content, genuinely engage with your various audiences and facilitate the learning process.

About the Program

This will be a highly participatory program where you will be introduced to tried-and-tested planning tools for presentation and workshop design. There will be role play of presentations to use these organisational tools and specific communication skills practised to enhance your presentation delivery. And finally, communication fundamentals will be discussed to make sure that everything you share is tailored to the specific group with whom you are working.

Because this is a “learn by doing” workshop the numbers will be limited to only eight people. This will ensure that there is enough time for true skill development and evolution, as well as the opportunity to receive personalized feedback.

February 5th, 2019: Teachers Listening Circle 


The Yoga Institute is very excited to invite you to join our next Teachers Listening Circle 

This unique circle is especially held for yoga teachers and therapists to come together in community and share what is offering inquiry or curiosity when teaching yoga. The Teachers Listening Circle will be hosted by Lucy Karnani and Rosie Caunt, both highly practiced in holding space for forums of this nature.

Date: Wednesday 5th February
Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm circle, followed by a pot-luck supper for those who’d like to stay
Facilitators: Lucy Karnani and Rosie Caunt
Cost: No charge

What is the main objective?

The main objective of the Circle will be to allow anyone who wants to share about their professional or personal experiences as a yoga teacher or therapist to be fully listened to by their peers in a safe space. Lucy and Rosie have seen the great value of sharing common  experiences with others who are like-minded, or more importantly, like-hearted, and who are working with similar situations.  Often putting our experiences into words helps us gain insight and learning from our own experiences that may not happen when we just ruminate on them in our own mind. Additionally, by listening to other teachers and therapists there may be opportunities for learning from other’s experiences.

Who is this for?

Anyone who has been teaching yoga – whether for a few months or many years, frequently or infrequently, all are welcome. There is no charge to attend, although you are asked to RSVP so we can be prepared appropriately 😊. You are also asked to come with an open heart and compassionate intention to support each other. The Teachers Listening Circle will run from 6:30-8:30pm, followed by a pot-luck supper for those who’d like to stay afterward.

The first one took take place on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, and was enjoyed so much by all who attended we have decided to continue hosting our Teacher’s Listening Circles multiple times a year. Numbers are limited, please reserve your place.


What Previous Circle Participants Say…

“My experience was certainly two pronged. I knew that coming together with like-minded yoga teachers would be an incredibly educational experience and a catalyst for my professional growth. What I wasn’t expecting was personal healing and growth. This was certainly an added bonus. Thank you. ” KC

“Once again I loved being at the listening circle. It builds my confidence and allows me to feel part of something greater than myself. Community.” Sheila

“Hearing what others are doing is such a rich learning experience. Thank you Rosie and Lucy for your time and the beautiful love and care that you put into the group.”

Yoga Sutra Studies with Michael de Manincor

Feb 20th, 2020: Yoga Sutra Studies with Michael de Manincor

Yoga Sutra Studies with Michael de Manincor

The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali forms the foundation of all yoga teachings and has been described as the “Heart of Yoga” and a “guidebook to life”.

Presented in a simple yet compact style, the sutras offer the entire foundation of Yoga’s philosophy, psychology, concepts and tools for practice and personal transformation.

We believe that a thorough study of this text is essential for every Yoga teacher and keen Yoga student.

This course is designed for yoga teachers and experienced yoga students, providing a deeper exploration of:

  • The conceptual framework and major themes of these ancient teachings
  • Relevance of these teachings for the practice of Yoga today, for health and well-being in our modern lives
  • Classical chanting of the Yoga Sutras

Michael de Manincor studied the Yoga Sutras over many years under the guidance of Krishnamacharya’s son TKV Desikachar.

In this course, Michael shares his in-depth and practical understanding of the meaning of key themes and teachings in the sutras, how they relate to yoga practice, the mind, and life in general.

His level of knowledge and understanding of the sutras, along with his warm and engaging teaching style, give students a wonderful and unique learning experience.


What students say…

____________________

“Michael is a great person to walk alongside as you explore the sutras. I highly recommend studying with him!”

____________________

“I loved the way Michael was able to explain the concepts from these ancient teachings in ways that make so much sense for my life today, amazing! It didn’t just change my approach to my yoga practice, it changed how I view my life.”

____________________

“I’ve grown so much inside, the Yoga Sutras is basically ‘The Secret of Life,’ thank you guys.”

Feb 14th, 2020: iRest® Level 1 Training, Crows Nest (Sydney)

Friday 14th February (evening only) – Wednesday 19th February, 2020

Finding a path to peace

So many of us struggle to find peace in amongst the responsibilities and schedules of our busy lives. It can seem impossible to access moments of quiet. Even when we physically take a break from the ‘busyness’, our minds keep running.

You might experience this in your own life or you might see it play out in the lives of your students or clients.

There are so many practices and resources available to try to address the stress and overwhelm that can overtake us when life feels like it’s ‘all too much’, but many fail to get to the root cause of the problem or bring lasting change.

iRest yoga nidra practice is a powerful and transformative set of tools and techniques that cuts through to uncover and release us from the underlying issues that hold us back from accessing the quiet, peaceful place that exists within all of us.

This is a live face to face valuable learning workshop and the only iRest Level 1 Training offered in Sydney in 2020 …

What is iRest?

iRest is a complete yoga nidra meditation practice emphasising deep, heartfelt listening and welcoming, which in turn produces profound healing for yourself and those you may work with. It incorporates meditative self-inquiry, interactive dialogue, mind/body deep rest and guided relaxations.

This training teaches you everything you need to know to incorporate the simple 10-step iRest protocol into your personal life, professional teaching or clinical practice.

iRest can be used in many settings including a personal meditation or yoga practice, private and group meditation and yoga classes, physical therapy, massage therapy, social work, clinical and medical settings, alternative or integrative medical practices as well as in-job training and job resiliency programs.

What Students Say About iRest Level 1 Training

How does it work?

iRest is a meditation protocol that is integrative, as it heals unresolved issues and traumas, and restorative, as it helps us recognise the underlying peace of mind that is always present amidst the changing circumstances in life.

iRest is effective and easy to use and has been proven to  support the healing process for people facing many of life’s most common challenges, including chronic pain, sleeping problems, high stress, depression, anxiety and post-trauma issues.

In this Level 1 Training, you’ll learn:

  • The principles, practice and profound healing benefits of the iRest meditation protocol.
  • How to weave iRest into your existing personal practice or develop a regular practice.
  • How to teach and deliver iRest in group and individual settings to facilitate positive change and healing for others.

Following the Level 1 Training, you will:

  • Experience the freedom and peace that comes from being able to deeply rest your entire being.
  • Join a global community of teachers teaching iRest in yoga studios, sleep clinics, rehabilitation and healthcare facilities, hospice, prisons, universities, schools, as well as in private practice.
  • Be able to list yourself on the IRI website as an ‘iRest Level 1 Teacher’
  • Access our free ‘Teacher Resources’ and join our ‘Teachers Community Network’ membership program for further personal and professional support
  • Be recommended by IRI to people seeking iRest teachers in their local area.

About our Senior iRest Trainer

Fuyuko Sawamura-Toyota is a certified iRest® Senior Trainer, Retreat Leader and Supervisor/Mentor. For the past 20 years she has been deeply committed on the path of Yoga and ancient Non-dual wisdom. She is also a qualified Hatha Yoga teacher since 1996.

She incorporates iRest and Self-Inquiry in her teachings of Yoga, Somatic body awareness and meditation at her yoga studio “Prema Yoga” on the Gold Coast, Australia and internationally.

In 2007, Richard Miller, her spiritual mentor, brought to Fuyuko a deeper understanding of living life in a non dual way. From a life of ever deepening joy, astonishment and Stillness, a heartfelt desire to share these precious teachings has sprung forth. She teaches and hosts iRest trainings and retreats in Australia. She has been assisting iRest trainings in North America for Richard Miller and other senior trainers.

“Fuyuko Sawamura-Toyota brings her rich, varied, and decades of experience as both a student and teacher immersed in the various paths of yoga (karma, bhakti, hatha, raja, Jñâna), to the offerings she shares with students, including group and private classes, workshops, retreats, and trainings. She has dedicated her life to service, and to offering in-depth teachings that are informed by the eastern and western nondual wisdom traditions of self-inquiry and meditation.

I deeply respect Fuyuko for how she integrates her grounded presence and deep passion for truth, beauty, love and community when teaching yoga and iRest meditation practices. I thoroughly enjoy working with Fuyuko in the various responsibilities she’s involved in at the iRest Institute (IRI) including her role as 1) an iRest Trainer, 2) Certified iRest Teacher, and 3) iRest Supervisor for students fulfilling their iRest Certification.

I am deeply grateful for Fuyuko’s ability to bring these precious nondual teachings forward into the world. I hope you take advantage of sharing time with Fuyuko in her upcoming offerings.”

Course Recognition – Continuing Professional Development

Approximately 30 CPD hours
These points are recognised by Yoga Australia.

Australian Psychological Society (APS) CPD Points

For those of you who attended iRest Level 1 training and who are psychologists, the APS provides the following information regarding CPD points:

“Registered psychologists are required to complete a set number of continuing professional development (CPD) hours as a requirement of ongoing registration. There is no accreditation or approval process for CPD for psychologists, but rather individual psychologists must be able to justify selection of particular CPD according to their individual learning needs.”

Therefore, if you can justify the counting of iRest training towards your continuing professional development as a psychologist (which doesn’t seem difficult given the research about its application and effectiveness for mental health and well being), then you may claim the hours!”

 – Dr Emma Spiel: the Victorian Coordinator and Deputy Convener of the National Committee for the APS Psychology and Yoga Interest Group (dated 3 July 2015)
