300 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training in English/Japanese

Rupali Embry and Tania Jo Ingrahm

May 23, 2014 - June 3, 2014

Ready to refine your skills as a yoga teacher? Looking for inspiration to keep your teaching alive and fresh? Have you forgotten a lot of the material from your basic training? Do you feel like your teaching often falls short of the message that you intend to transmit?

This advanced yoga teacher training is for you!

About the Facilitator(s)

Our spiritual visionary, Rupali, has her head in the clouds and her feet firmly on the earth. You will find reading the spiritual texts and getting completely jazzed. Start a conversation with her about the vibration basis of the Universe, the Yoga Sutras or the Bhagavad Gita and it could go on for hours.

Rupali’s teaching style reflects her 28 years of study in the field of yoga, vibration, universal laws, optimum health, positive psychology, neuroplasticity and multiple spiritual traditions. She has studied the healing arts of Reiki, rebirthing, hypnotic self-suggestion and emotional freedom technique (EFT). She’s in the process of becoming certified as a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist.

Her teachers include the entire community of Kripalu Yoga Center, as well as Yoga Amrit Desai, from whom she received her spiritual name Rupali in 1991, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, with whom she studied for over 10 years, and most recently the teachings of Sri. T. Krishnamacharya.

A perpetual student of yoga, she believes that all yoga must be adapted to suit the individual so as not to create harm, and that one of its greatest values to humanity is too keep us in touch with the greater Spirit that is accessed from within the body…to live as the embodied Presence that we are.

Known as the “Bandha Queen,” Tania is most alive when teaching her beloved students about the nuts and bolts of the Ashtanga practice. She’s a technical wizard when it comes to breaking down the most challenging postures into easy, bite-sized pieces.

Although she couldn’t even touch her toes in the beginning, she was completely mesmerized by the breathing techniques she learned in her first yoga class with Rupali. That began her now 25-year journey that has inspired many students to do things they didn’t think they would ever do.

Her teachers include Rupali, Yoga Amrit Desai of Kripalu Yoga Center and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She originally saw yoga as a useful tool to achieve her triathlon goals, as well as improve her breathing and focus. Studying anotomy, nutrition and Ayurveda gives her valuable knowledge to share with students.

Her yoga practice has evolved over the years and has settled into a strong self-practice of Ashtanga’s first and second series, dictated by her body each day. Lately her greatest inspirations have been the teachings of Pëma Chödron and the awesome YouTube series of Kino MacGregor, whose back bend is the stuff of Tania’s dreams.

Pranayama and japa are her go-to tools for reining in the screaming monkeys in her head.

As a Florida native, she is quite fond of the water and got her degree in marine zoology, which brought her to Hawaii over three decades ago. She can be found hiking Hawaii’s trails, swimming with the fish and getting excited whenever she reads about critters or nature.
