Why Tribe

Tribe yoga teacher training, teachers and graduates, Goa, India

 

Tribe Yoga Teacher Training Courses have been organically evolving since 2008. The teachers, manual and structure of our courses are considered by many to be first class.

Attending a Tribe Level 1, 200-hour yoga teacher training course means you have chosen both an integral and experienced yoga school. It is a great investment of your time, money and energy. During the training Tribe teachers invite you to explore and embody profound teachings that are transmitted in an easy to digest manner.

Trainees find it easy to connect and resonate with our ‘down to earth’ approach. We nurture the individuality of each student through a fusion of yoga styles and disciplines. As well as pranayama, meditation and asana we introduce conscious eating, purification practices, healing, chanting and other spiritually empowering practices. All are fertile ground for long lasting transformation.

This is a very personalized training whereby students and teachers are sharing space in a way that quickly creates a group dynamic of trust and loving energy. Tribe teachers establish a special space and atmosphere that supports participants to relax into the possibilities of growth and change and open the doors for new and wonderful experiences.

We have many students come to us through a recommendation from others who have been on a Tribe YTTC. Over the past 10 years, Tribe has successfully trained over 2000 teachers. For those of you who have not had any personal introduction or recommendation to us, we hope you resonate with our approach and can trust in the longevity of our program and our years of experience.

Syllabus

1. Philosophy…8 limbs of Ashtanga Yoga

The main body of teachings for our philosophical talks and studies is the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. We focus on the eight
limbs of Ashtanga Yoga, which supports and illuminates our understanding of what yoga is and how to practice.

2. Yoga history & the different paths of yoga

At Tribe the ancient teachings of the East are taught in a modern way suitable for the western mind so students can flourish in their practice and naturally gravitate to a more yogic lifestyle.
We have no bias to any particular spiritual teachings and teach in a non-dogmatic way, which embraces many spiritual traditions and paths.

3. Yoga living, lifestyle & diet

We eat for energy and when we recognize that yoga is a practice which generates and directs energy in specific ways our food choices becomes very important. The food we eat has a powerful and profound effect on all levels of our Being. It’s not unusual for yoga students to plateau in their practice
and often diet is a major factor stalling one’s spiritual evolution. On the level 1 training, we introduce fasting and detoxing practices that are not compulsory. Students are always encouraged to listen to the theory and then decide for themselves if they want to participate.

4. Asana

Tribe’s Level 1 is a mixed styles course, in addition to Modified Ashtanga Primary Series used in sequences and studies, there will be Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and other practices
To honor varying abilities and limitations there are modifications to the traditional primary series asanas and introductions to a greater variety of asanas and sequencing taught under an umbrella of spiritual content and guidance. We nurture your confidence and creativity so you can offer the style of asana that you love to practice.

We feel that awareness is the fertile ground for transformation and the real essence of asana practice lies in connecting to the subtleties of the body, breath, and mind. Instructions focus on leading the students into a deeper awareness, to feel and recognize what’s going on inside their bodies, not just physically.

The Tribe approach transmitted to trainees is one of clear and effective instruction to increase awareness and sensitivity empowering students to deepen into a safe and beneficial practice.

The method we use in the asana practices and studies is inspired by the ‘Dynamic yoga method ‘ as devised by Godfrey Devereux. The dynamic yoga method provides us with the simplistic approach, practice, and understanding of some basic fundamentals which make asana practice safe and effective. Those fundamentals are: a soft and passive core, a stable foundation, expression of the bandhas and freedom of the breath.

5. Pranayama

Pranayama can open the doors to the possibility of transcending physical and emotional blocks thereby accessing and connecting to the more subtle aspects of our being.
The pranayama program includes a broad range of techniques that present a gradual yet deep exploration of the power of the breath.

6. Meditation practices

The meditation program is a combination of guided and silent practices that are an invitation to cultivate the awareness and stillness that is the hallmark of all spiritual practices. We teach a diverse selection of techniques including breath awareness, mantra, music and dynamic meditation.

7. Teaching skills

During the training, you get plenty of time to develop teaching skills through teaching practice and coaching from the Tribe teachers.Each week there are teaching assessments so you can appreciate and monitor your progress and growth. By the end of the training, you are able to create your own sequence and structure for a 75-minute yoga class which you can immediately teach to others when you venture back out into the world.

8. Restorative Yoga

Restorative classes are a great opportunity to recalibrate the body and establish a deep sense of release and relaxation on all levels of one’s Being. On the Tribe yoga teacher training, the restorative classes create an opportunity to explore how to use props to support students deeper into stability, stillness, and comfort so the body and mind are both replenished and refreshed.

9. Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidracan be a very powerful and profound practice to support practitioners on the path of personal growth and spiritual development. It’s a practice that if done on a regular basis can help us to break free of the conditioned mind and allow us to connect to the most subtle realms of our Being in an awake state.

10. Beginner Kriyas

Kriyas are the cleansing practices of Hatha yoga that support health and hygiene but more importantly cleanse the practitioner on a physical, energetic, emotional and mental level. The beginner’s kriya practices are optional. Students can decide for themselves after the theory if they wish to practice kriyas on a daily basis

11. Chanting

The practice of Bhakti yoga, devotional chanting, and singing, is a beloved practice of Tribe yoga teacher training course. The teachers have a passion for Bhakti yoga and are able to transmit their enthusiasm and own devotion and love for the divine to the trainees in such a profound way. Hearts open and those present often find themselves in amazing sublime states of consciousness.

12. Self-practice

Our focus is to guide students towards deepening into self-practice. We facilitate a space whereby each person is invited to nurture their own unique individuality and explore what works for them.During the training students are supported to deepen their understanding and sensitivity, learning how to navigate safely and effectively through a self-practice, being able to skillfully respond to what they are feeling in each and every moment.Whether you are new to self-practice or have been practicing solo for a long time the training will help you to develop greater spontaneity and become more explorative in your practice.
