This Mythical Vinyasa Immersion is a part of our 300/500 HR Yoga Teacher Training. Certified Yoga Teachers only.

There are so many good teachers out there... how do you set yourself apart and become a GREAT teacher? In this workshop we'll explore creative sequencing and the symbolism behind the poses. Learn how to craft artful and unique classes that not only make sense to the body, but also inspire the mind because they are rich with myth, stories, symbols and meaning! Through mythology we discover our deepest selves and learn how to navigate difficult life transitions, and there is no richer tradition of myth than in India. Ganesha, Kali, Shiva, Saraswati… any number of deities could make their appearance in the stories that Kelly shares. These tales provide countless opportunities to discover our true nature and bring more meaning into our lives, and this workshop will give you the keys to making your entire class a poetic metaphor. Lecture, storytelling, sequencing practice and discussion.
