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.
- Maybe 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.
The Power of Presence – bringing the world of subtle energy into your teaching:
working with individual students, making 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.
The more subtle and powerful we get, the territory may become tricky and nuanced. Our need for grounding and boundaries is more palpable, as we suddenly discover how powerful we are as the perceiver. As people on the planet, especially as teachers, we own the power of projection and how to clearly navigate our interactions with ourselves, our students, as well as one another.
In this training you will learn: how you can recognize when you’re getting drained or giving yourself away; how you can manage your energy 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.
Yogic Vision Quests, not unlike yoga nidra, are a unique and powerful way to journey within.
You will go on your own inner Vision Quest as well as learn how to take others on one, while finding your voice and power in leading such journeys. 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.
We will play, challenge, expand and rewire how we move in our bodies and our relationship with space, using both “traditional” asana and different flavors of body movement. 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.
Our practices are both dynamic and soft; and for those of you who already practice or teach yin, we will practice “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.
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.
Why are we practicing yoga anyway?
Can you remember the dreamer, while you are dreaming the dream?
This Advanced 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.”
