This program is appropriate for those who want to deepen their practice and connection to yoga, sadhana, nature, and themselves. Elements of the program: Unique one-on-one guidance Feedback, observations and insights A personalized approach, tailored for you 2 private sessions per month 1 public sadhana or workshop per month How it works: Sadhana, or practice, is a known methodology of enacting change. If there is a behavior or a thought pattern you want to change, or start, it requires consistent effort. It is possible to receive grace, and change will come, and then we don't have to exert effort. However, sadhana, or practice, will heighten our sensitivity so we recognize grace when it comes. Or, we know to move a little this way or that, so as to get in it's path. The two wings of spiritual evolution, grace and effort, will help us to soar to greater heights. While we can't "force" grace, we can practice. Along the way as your sadhana evolves, you will recognize many benefits to a consistent practice that may not have been on your wish list, yet are wonderful and welcome. Once you decide you want to practice, assistance is valuable. Whether it be to help process insights, dispel doubt, encourage continuation, or validate experiences. When you enroll in the Apprenticeship Program you will attend one public sadhana class per month, 2 private sessions to be scheduled at your convenience and receive unlimited email support. On the months no public sadhana is scheduled you will receive an additional private sessions.
What happens: We talk about what you would like from your yoga practice. Whether it is something physical, energetic, or spiritual. Then you will be given some practices. They will be aligned with your belief system and fit somehow in to your life situation. We both want you to succeed. So your practice will be something that is manageable and definitely approachable. Your participation in the public sadhana's will give you exposure to different practices and the philosophy behind sadhana. But it will be during the private sessions that we will attune a practice to your needs and abilities. Continuous email support will help you to stay motivated and on track, and answer any concerns or questions that you might have between our face to face sessions.
What it costs: $240 per month There is a 6 month minimum commitment to the program. This commitment is necessary to stabilize your progress and understanding, and give enough time for you to recognize the benefits of your efforts. You can pay monthly via auto renewal or receive a $40 discount for a one time payment via cash or check.
When does it start: Whenever you are ready. You can also participate via Skype or facetime, for private sessions and receive recordings of the sadhanas.
