Owning Your Fierce Magic
Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
• Biodynamic Yin • Yogic Vision Quest
• Subtle Energetics
This is your Initiation into Subtle Energy as a Practitioner and Teacher.
In this advanced yoga teacher training, you will enter a space to meet your own feminine power, own and respect your unique essence, and commit to the wisdom and dharma within you.
Why I loved meditation in the first place was that for the first time I didn’t need a book or teacher to tell me what or how to think. Meditation became a deep space for me to meet myself.
These ancient energetic arts are designed to wake up our inner mystic, that inner-space of knowing, for us to know ourselves, to know Truth, to know reality and consciousness. It’s our space to untangle what’s not-true, to weed out the lies we’ve been telling ourselves and have unconsciously agreed to. It’s waking up our innate sensitivity – and while we all are able to sense in different ways – it’s the journey into the more subtle realms and to be honest about how things truly are.
This is your space to own the silence and delve into the mystery there. We’ll call it “Welcome to the Void, within The Field.” It’s a Feminine Art as it takes patience, trust, and a willingness to drop in and wait. You’ll get to meet all the blocks inside, the ways you want to dance away from, mask and costume yourself. This is your inner dance to meet your power within.
As a practitioner and teacher, this is your opportunity to dive into the more subtle energetic realms in your body. It’s from there you will understand your own energy field and how this influences your thoughts, emotions, choices and perception. It’s time to own the Mystery that’s alive inside of you.
This is your space to shed what’s ready to shed and allow the deeper potency of your being that wants to come through. This is not for the faint of heart – this is for those who have courage and who are ready. It takes vulnerability and a willingness to be nourished, which may be one of your initiations here.
This is your opportunity to own your own truth.
“Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.” ~ Miles Davis

Asana… step out of the rules and step into your magic:
We’ll do asana that’s more like movement practices to help you explore your space. To understand what creates stability for you, you’ll drop into a deeper current and let your flow take you over and move you. This will be your way to contact the intelligent and creative life force that wants to speak. You’ll expand with new ways of movement. This requires no prior education, this is a stripping away, an unlearning, a contact of being. Dynamic and slow and discovering the deeper life force underneath, our practices will be informed by movement arts such as dance, qi gong, yoga (including Cat’s signature “biodynamic yin), gyrokinesis, primal movement, feldenkreis and most importantly the Source beyond that.
Our practices won’t be just outwardly dynamic – we’ll have softer practices to invite the stillness, to meet the inner dynamism that’s sparking inside of you. You will leave here standing and walking differently in your body, with a new embodied awareness that you can bring into whatever you teach. You will learn how to weave subtle energetic practices into the asana you teach.
Note: “biodynamic yin” which is a subtle energetic approach derived from shamanic, craniosacral and Cat’s own magic – slightly different than the common standard yin practice
Yogic Vision Quests: some call Yoga Nidra “upgraded”
You will tune into the depth and wisdom of your heart and guide your students on a multi-dimensional journey.
You will go on your own inner Vision Quest, as well as learn how to take others on a journey that’s visual, sensory, exploratory, and contacting the astral realms. You will discover your relationship to your astral body and how to strengthen your awareness of this multi-dimensional being and also respect it.
We will spend our time surfing different levels of consciousness, understanding the various brain wave states, in order to drop ourselves and our students into a deeper healing state. Some people take drugs to get there, as some students of Cat say, “You don’t need drugs when you’re with Cat Kabira.” With Cat as your guide, you will discover the real power and vision that already exists inside of you; you just need to give yourself permission to enter.
Understand Your own Energy Field
This is where you can become intimate with your own energetic body, in order to understand your individual make-up. Experiencing the magical connection between your physical, mental, emotional, ancestral, and astral layers, you will gain a whole new perception on how life speaks in your body and cultivate your own way to meet it.
You will discover:
- what creates cracks and holes in your field and how to repair and strengthen it.
- how to sit beside your own pain so that it transforms into light and power.
- your own unique energetic field, your own essence, and begin to sense, understand and respect that uniqueness in others
To teach in a more subtle energetic way, you’ll undergo your own initiation of Ground and discover all the layers. The more you call yourself back into Present from future and past times, from other people, other countries, the more you are here, with a power that radiates. We call this the Power of Presence.
The Power of Presence – bringing the world of subtle energy into your teaching:
Discover how to work with the energy field. First your own, then with a single person, and then with an entire group.
Imagine how your teaching might change from this.
“Don’t play what’s there; play what’s not there.” ~ Miles Davis
10 days to play within the spaces of silence and inner listening.
To work with your own energy field and meet what’s ready to be met.
To upgrade your own teaching in terms of owning the creative Source that wants to move through you, which will inform: what you teach, how you teach, and a deeper surrender.
Sense the undercurrents in the room, how to teach according to what rises, how to keep your own ground, your own connection to Source as you hold space.
Get to know the ways you might betray yourself, how you might leak your own energy, how you might give yourself away and take on things you truly don’t want to.
Learn personal energy management so you feel lit and effortless in all that you do as well as how you can respect your own boundaries and those of others.
Understand the power of projection on both sides of teacher and student and what it really means to be neutral. It’s the ownership of our own energy field that also strengthens the group field.
Learn how to make hands-on and hands-off subtle energetic adjustments, and also how to hold space – or hold “the field” – in large group classes. It takes you owning you and allowing the transmission that wants to come through you to influence your sequence design as well as your voice.
This is your chance to step into a greater space of awareness, to own the potency that wants to come through you. You will get your own “upgrade” as a teacher and practitioner, and truly hear the honesty of the soul power that wants to come through you.
The ownership of your own precious wild heart.
Although you’re in a group, you’ll have your individual initiations. This training doesn’t last just 10 days, it will spark you for the rest of your life.
Movement, meditation, Energy Practices with Self and Other, Welcoming the Power of your own Essence.
If you feel the call to drop deeper into the power of your own energetic being, we’re here and ready to meet you.
This training is for you if…
- You are ready for something more refined in your practice and awareness.
- You want to take your practice beyond asana.
- You already sense something subtler within you.
- You are ready to go behind the scenes and meet what’s really the driving force in your life.
- You are ready to be mature in your practice.
- You are ready to own your inner guru, your inner discernment, to know your truth, rather than defaulting to what someone else tells you is true.
- You are ready to step beyond the system so you can practice and teach from your own truth.
This is all about energetics: the subtle realms, the power of sensitivity – but since sensitivity gets so misunderstood – let’s call it a refinement of the senses. This is your place to create an energetic language for yourself, from within the world of the invisible that is the potent driving force for all we experience. This is a way to bring depth to your personal practice – whether it’s āsana, meditation, prāṇayama or simply you being you. This is your opportunity to drop into that place beyond the six senses you already know you have (the Native Americans say we have 13), where those senses get to be alive and trusted, enabling you to let your multi-dimensional intelligence come through.
Cat calls this “The Field” because it is where you can become intimate with your own energetic body, in order to understand your individual make-up. Experiencing the magical connection between your mental, emotional, ancestral, physical and astral layers, you will gain a whole new perception on how pain speaks in your body and cultivate your own power to face and dissolve it. You will discover: what creates cracks and holes in your field and how to repair and strengthen it. Once you understand your unique energetic field, you will also begin to sense that uniqueness in others.
There is nothing standard in what we do.
This training isn’t about giving you another system. It is handing you back to you, so you can step into your own magic and out of any standardized system.
This is your space to remember the dreamer who’s dreaming the dream.
This Yoga Teacher Training will be 10 days of up-leveling your own practice, a place for you to bring in a refined awareness and spark the inner-knower inside. It is your place for your own burning through, so that you are bright for yourself and others. Deep work on your own energetic field as well as becoming more intimate with your chakras and strengthening what you are ready to own and step into.
You will never be the same when you leave.
10 days, 75 hours of advanced credit in Yoga Alliance.
Application required: as we only accept those who are in a mature place with their practice and are truly ready to dive into some bigger waves. Trust us, it’s fun in here!
As anything we offer, the cornerstones of our practice is are grounding, boundaries, safety and respect.
If these words speak to you, come join us in The Field – The Power of Presence.
“I can assure you that Cat’s training is like no other – and her students aren’t either. So if you’re looking for a training that TRULY is transformational, life-changing, and something you will continue for years to say ‘that was the best thing I have ever done for myself,’ she’s the one.
Cat’s ability to hold space to allow you to become your best self is a gift that you’ll walk in feeling that she must be a superwoman and somehow also leave the training feeling that you too are a superwoman if you just show up and do the work. If you are ready, LEAP.”
~ Bre Cummins, US
However a 200 hour certification is not required, we do expect a certain level of stability, emotional maturity, commitment, and self-awareness, in order for you to dive fully into this training.
For those of you who have already completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance training, you may find that both of these trainings will take your personal practice, awareness and teaching abilities to a much deeper level.
No “advanced asana”
In terms of the physical aspect of these trainings, there will be no “advanced asana” in a gymnastic sense. When we do movement it will be exploratory: an ownership of personal space and most importantly, the invitation to fulfil your deepest embodiment.
Intimate Group Sizes that Foster Connection, Community and Personalized Support
This is energetic work – whether we are talking about yoga or healing – you will train with Cat Kabira in new ways, enabling you to sense and support yourself and eventually to support others. As a facilitator, this does require extra attention to your specific needs. In order to foster this connection, community, and support, so that we may tailor to the specifically unique needs of the students within the training, groups are purposefully kept to a more intimate size.
Furthermore while we are conscious of how to support groups throughout this deep work, you may need additional individual support. This support could be via a therapist with whom you already have been working or one recommended by us.
