DEEPER THAN ASANA


 
 

DEEPER THAN ASANA TEACHER TRAINING

Deeper Than Asana Teacher Training was created to educate from a traditional philosophical approach to the ancient wisdom of Yoga. Passionate study and practice of yoga promotes a deeper awareness of our purpose in life, this awareness begins to fuel great compassion and insight for the self and others.  
The practice becomes DEEPER THAN ASANA. 

“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”
--T.K.V. Desikachar


Deeper Than Asana Teacher Training is built upon the premise of transmitting knowledge from teacher to student in an intimate setting, thus each session only allows a few students at one time. This traditional method ensures each student personalized guidance, recognizing each individual is absolutely unique.

DEEPEN YOUR PRACTICE


DEEPEN YOUR PRACTICE


 

A progam for people seeking immersion in yoga and a yogic lifestyle.  Although this training is ideal for someone who wishes to teach yoga, it is not solely for that purpose. Many people who have been practicing yoga have noticed the countless benefits from their practice and want more. There is a limit to what you can learn in a group led yoga class.  During Deeper Than Asana Teacher Training, a comprehensive study of each of the 8 limbs of yoga, quality and experience of the teacher trainers and like-minded student community actuates change into your life and the outlook of your place in the world. We bring yoga’s timeless wisdom alive for people who want to deepen their connection to themselves, each other, and the world.  We are unique because we understand the nature of human variation which has been largely ignored by the yoga industry.

"True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn't care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied." ~Aadil Palkhivala

She has studied under Master teachers Erika Burkhalter, YogaWorks Costa Mesa, CA; Tim Miller, Ashtanga Yoga Center, Carlsbad CA and Maty Ezraty; Judith Hanson Lasater and Vinay Kumar, Mysore, India. These authentic teachers have influenced her teaching and practice greatly; learning from instructors with 20+ years of experience equips her with a well rounded knowledge of yoga, its impact on the body and the practice as a science of the mind.  Rebecca takes a DEEPER THAN ASANA approach to her teaching, being influenced by her travels and study in India, she views asana as only one of the eight limbs of yoga. Her ultimate goal is to provide her students with an educated approach to asana, aiding them to begin to understand the deeper roots of yoga. Making a full circle connection to the practice allows the student to safely begin to unravel the deeper meaning of life, its purpose and ultimate happiness.

ERIKA BURKHALTER - TRAINER

Erika Burkhalter, MA Yoga Studies, MS Neuropsychology, E-RYT 500, has been teaching yoga since 1999, and exploring its practices since childhood. Inspired by her many journeys to India, she weaves a touch of Indian myth, meditation and mantra into all of her classes.

Erika also teaches classes in Yoga philosophy and history for Loyola Marymount University, and normally begins each yoga class with a short discussion on integrating lessons from the Yoga Sutras or other key yogic texts into  our lives to promote happiness, mental clarity, and a sense of interconnection between all things. Erika teaches for a variety of Teacher Training programs, at several festivals and conferences around the country, and is completing writing her book, Interconnected. Erika leads Yoga Trek Adventures around the globe, specializing in Indian explorations. For more information, please see ErikaBurkhalter.com or contact her through her web site.
