Lila Vinyasa 300 Hour YTT, Module 2
We will cover the following in Module Two of 300 Hour Lila Vinyasa Yoga:
Art of Mantra and Meditation
We will cover different mantras, their meanings, how to pronounce them properly and how to lead our students through them. We will also have a daily meditation practice going through different techniques and how to lead our students through them.
You will be given a book list in Module 1, or if you're just joining us for Module 2, upon registration. We will go over one to two texts a day. Included in this list is the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, Myth of Freedom, Tantra, Chakras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and a few others. We will dissect their meanings, discuss our experience of the readings and go over how to apply them to the public class setting.
We will go over different pranayama techniques, their effects, how to teach them and why they are beneficial. Everyone will practice teaching the group and receive feedback.
The Subtle Body
We will go over what it is, how to connect to it and how to make it accessible to our students. Included in this will be Pranayama, Boa Form (from a martial art I used to study called Chien Lung), visualization and mantras of the chakras and meditation.
Ayurveda-The sister science of Yoga
What is it and why is it useful to the yogi? We will go over the doshas, how they are affected by the seasons, the daily rituals (dinacharya), abhyanga (self-massage) and what to eat/avoid depending upon our own constitution and the time of year.
The Power of Myth with guest teacher Shivanad Oss
Drawing from Joseph Campbell, Carlos Castaneda, Buddhism and Indian Mythology, Shivanad will lecture on the power of myth. Explain why it’s relevant to our path, how to apply and use myth in our life and practice.

Movement has always been sacred to me. I have danced my whole life, whether it’s been grooving to a good song, taking dance classes or flowing through a vinyasa, my body can’t get enough. Through movement, I feel as though I’m communing with the Divine. I took my first vinyasa class in 2000 at Jivamukti Yoga Center. I had a feeling of arriving home. We moved through postures seamlessly with an emphasis of breath-body connection. The class gave me what the dance world didn’t, an emphasis on the internal journey. I received my 200 hour Vinyasa Certification with Lauren Hanna at Sonic Yoga NYC in 2003. I met Shiva Rea shortly thereafter and again, felt as though I had come home. Shiva had created a language for the kind of movement I’ve been doing my whole life. She, too, understood the idea of fluidity. Our bodies yearn to move like water and when we do, our bodies hum with excitement. I’ve completed my 300 hour Prana Flow Certification with Shiva.I have been leading retreats for over 8 years both in the BC region and internationally. I was part of Sonic Yoga’s NYC 200 Hour Teacher Training in 2005-2006. I have been part of Semperviva’s 300 Hour Teacher Training faculty in BC since 2007. I started my own school of yoga, Lila School of Vinyasa Yoga, in 2013. I teach workshops on the subtle body, chakras, mantra, meditation and asana worldwide.I thank all my teachers for sharing their passion of this practice with me: David Life for opening my heart, Stacey Brass for her minute cues that have changed me life, Uma for opening my voice, Dana Flynn for throwing out all the rules and inspiring me to do the same, Constantine Darling for showing me another way, and Paul Ortega for reminding me we are ALL the cosmic dancer.I invite you to be playful in your practice, remembering that lightness is found in spirit!

Shivanad Oss, Guest Teacher
I 'chanced' upon Joseph Campbell's "Hero of a Thousand Faces" fifty years ago in the stacks at Loyola College in Montreal. I 'chanced' upon Carlos Casteneda's "Journey to Itxlan" five years later. Because of Campbell, I recognized that Don Juan, the Yaqui shaman, in "Itxlan" was living mythologically. I studied with Brizilian shamans for seven years & led my own circles for about ten.
Mythology helped me leave the village of the predigested experiences of my culture & enter the mystic forest of original experience. The world is all forgetting & the heart is a rage of directions. For me, living myth unites the heart & the world is lifted into its place.
