“This Yoga Teacher Training was a life changing experience for me. I became vegetarian, It made me more balanced and patient mother to a very outgoing and energetic child, I started accepting unexpected circumstances in my life more peacefully and calmly. The course also made me more disciplined with my daily yoga practice, which I was exactly looking for. But I have to say, that the course was emotionally tough at times and challenged me in some aspects, i.e. I wasn`t a bit prepared to teach my fellow students on the very first training day, but at the end of the course I got a confidence in my ability to to go out and share my yoga experience with other people. I am glad I did this course.” ~ Anna Doyle

Shakti has a deep respect for the powerful transformative potential of yoga, living and breathing this ancient practice, she teaches from her home Earthwise Yoga.  Regularly taking time out from teaching to go on silent retreats and attend yoga trainings in Europe, India and Thailand. Shakti had the unique  experience of undergoing her Hatha Yoga Training while living in an ashram in New Zealand over a four year period. Her curiosity about the esoteric aspect of yoga was nourished and enriched by her teacher Swami Shantimurti Saraswati. Out of this  grew a deep understanding and insight of spirituality and yoga philosophy. She has been teaching for over 11 years and  has gone on to further her knowledge of yoga, training  in Womb Yoga for Women’s Well Being, Yoga Nidra, Vinyasa Yoga, and Yin Yoga. She has also completed a 2 year apprenticeship in Sacred Plant Medicine, Reiki level 1 & 2, and a 2 year holistic therapy course.

Rachel Collins – AYURVEDA, DIET & LIFESTYLE

photo_of_rachel

Rachel Collins originally trained in Psychology and worked with families and children in both the States and Ireland. It was her work with autistic children that led her to explore the relationship between health and food. After researching several approaches to nutrition, Rachel was drawn to Ayurveda as a complete health system. This along with her interest in Yoga led her to explore both in a more structured way. She trained as an Ayurvedic and Lifestyle Therapist with the European Institute of Vedic Studies under Vaidya Atreya Smith. She also received a certificate of Advanced Clinical Study in Ayurveda from the Vinayak Ayurveda and Panchakarma Research Foundation in Nagpur, India. She is an ashtanga practitioner and completed the Heart of Yoga with the School of Ashtanga Yoga Dublin in 2006. In order to complement her work in both Ayurveda and Yoga, she trained in both Heart and Soul Healing and Solar Sound Healing. Rachel firmly believes that neither life nor health is straight forward and many times our “health” problems begin on a much deeper level. In order to explore these other levels, Rachel brings her own natural healing abilities to all areas of her work in order to be of better service to the client.

“When I’m on the mat I’m ‘being’, the being part of human being. I did the course to find balance and strength as a busy working mother. The asanas gave me strength while pranayama, meditation and relaxation brought me balance. Put them together and I found myself. The teaching, the food, the setting, the atmosphere, the pure yoga and my fellow yogis made it an unimaginable beginning of a lifelong journey. Thank you.” ~  Colleen Hayes

 

The Course Elements

  • Asanasyoga postures – dynamic, static and corrective postures for the various bodily systems, e.g. digestive, hormonal, lymphatic, reproductive etc.
  • Pranayama: yogic breathing techniques to both energize and balance. The breath is the most vital process of the body and is intimately linked to all aspects of human experience. Breath control practices increase the flow of prana (life force energy) in the nadis which helps to purify, regulate and activate them, thereby inducing physical and mental stability.
  • Mudra: hand gestures that direct internal energy to increase concentration and awareness and thus enhance the practitioner’s ability to stabilize the body and mind in meditation.
  • Mantra: powerful, sacred sound patterns that liberate, refine and purify the mind and emotions.
  • Yoga Nidra: systematic guided yogic relaxation which is a heart-based practice for deep healing and rejuvenation.
  • Meditation: a systematic approach to release stress and increase the awareness
  • Shatkarmasa set of purification and cleansing practices used to address imbalances in the body and remove toxins.
  • Anatomy and Physiology: the structure and function of the main physical body systems, and the energy systems of the subtle body. One full weekend of the course is dedicated to learning the anatomy of knees, hips, shoulder, girdle and alignment for safety in yoga classes.
  • Balancing: the application of yoga to body, energy, mind and emotions
  • Posture: postural and adjustment techniques
  • Teaching: Teaching methodology, useful tips and experience
  • Diet: Introduction to Ayurveda – the sister healing science to yoga
  • Philosophy: An introduction to Samkhya philosophy and ancient wisdom which includes: ayurveda, the eightfold path, the chakras, nadis, the koshas etc.

“I have learned and changed so much from the earthwise yoga teacher training course. It thought me that the mind has to let go of the body to fully relax, it brings me to a state of peace and gives me a deeper spiral awareness and my body is now finally feeling relaxed calm, lighter and relieved of tension. It was a challenging year both mentally and physically but it was well worth the journey. I would recommend this course to anyone. Thank you so much Shakti Saraswati”    ~ Denise Dunne

Additional Testimonials

“Doing the yoga teacher training course with Shakti at Earthwise Yoga has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far. I learned so much about every aspect of yoga from the physical components, asana and pranayama, to the lifestyle components, Ayurveda and yogic diet, and even the more subtle components, learning about meditation, the energetic body etc.

Not only did I learn so much about yoga and how best to share yoga with others, I learned a lot about myself, who I really was and what I really wanted to do with my life. The atmosphere at Earthwise a very warm and supportive environment to learn in. The location of the studio is indescribably beautiful too.

Every teacher training weekend was educational and informative but also very sociable and relaxing. It was lovely to have these weekends away from stress of everyday life. I was blessed enough to meet many open minded, warm hearted people, enjoy delicious vegetarian food and learn from other yoga students and teachers in the community. I made friendships which I feel will last for many years and I now feel I have a lovely support network of other yoga teachers.

I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in yoga and wants to learn more and deepen their own experience or anyone who wants to learn to share yoga with others. Yoga is a wonderful gift to share and I am deeply grateful that Shakti and everyone at Earthwise have helped me develop the skills to share this beautiful, life-changing practice with others.”      ~ Becky Jenkins

“It was the last day of the yoga course, and a lot of tears were had here. I will say though that it was a brilliant experience, spending 10 weekends here for the last year, and meeting so many great people. It’s definitely a one in a million place to go, with such positivity all the time and the atmosphere is always so welcoming and free, you feel like a different person every time you leave and that is one of the reasons why it was so hard to finish!! Would love to thank @earthwiseyoga once again for this amazing experience” ~ Julie Vaughan
