RYS-300 daytime for 50 plus
Aug 20, 2020 - Jul 8, 2021
 
The RYS-300 Daytime program for ages 50 plus provides an opportunity for local RYT-200 graduates to continue their education to become an RYT-500 certified yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. This course includes all the core requirements and competencies of our other RYS-300 courses, only the program is divided into shorter sessions during weekdays allowing students time to digest and savor the material as they spread their education out over a year of inspirational studies. Because this course is offered in 7 hour days, weekly, and spans a year, it is designed for local students only.
 
 
Students can join this program anytime, but the schedule traditionally begins each August and runs for a full year. (We release the schedules one year at a time, but for the purposes of personal planning, it is safe to assume the coursework listed below is generally offered in a similar way from year to year.)
 
Students who miss a unit due to travel or other issues can always substitute any of the schedule units with a weekend modular course offering instead to stay on track with the group and graduate within the year. Up to two substitutions are allowed, after which there is a modest fee for food that is a part of the weekend modular programs.
 
 
 
Required modules include: Yoga Philosophy 1: Yoga Sutras, Adv. Meditation, Adv. Pranayama, Chanting and Mudras, Advanced Teaching Skills, Intro to Yoga Therapy, Trauma Informed Yoga, Intro to Ayurveda, Advanced Anatomy, and the Teaching Practicum (Students will teach and receive feedback).
 
Electives that are assigned to this daytime program include: Yoga Nidra, Yoga for Seniors, Restorative Certification, Yin Certification, Yoga for Seniors.
 
Additional substitutions (Aerial or select yoga therapy units ) are available as an alternative to the electives.

Yoga Philosophy1
Dec 5, 2020 - Dec 6, 2020
 
Heartwood's Philosophy 1 course explores the 196 yoga sutras that encompass the foundation of yoga philosophy. The Yoga Sutra, widely regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, is a collection of aphorisms, outlining the eight limbs of yoga. These threads (as sutra translates from Sanskrit) of wisdom offer guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life.
Designed for students who have a basic understanding of the yamas and niyamas and are ready to dive into the core teachings of yoga beyond the physical practice, our lessons include discussion, exercises and lectures to help students contemplate the meanings and deeper dimensions of yoga's powerful teachings. In this course we also work on an expressive art project to help process the teachings and reflect deeper upon the sutras and the many levels of application we can invite into our lives today.

This course is open to anyone interested in yoga philosophy, but does offer CEU's for yoga teachers seeking ongoing studies. Philosophy 1 is a required unit for the Heartwood RYT-300 program and it is a prerequisite for our upcoming IAYT yoga therapy 800 hour program. This course is a prerequisite for sequential yoga philosophy studies. Philosophy 2 will be offered in the spring and includes 20 hours focused on the Bhagavad Gita. Philosophy 3 is devoted to the Upanishads and the Dhammapada. These three courses combine to establish a foundation of understanding of yoga as a system of integration of mind, body and spirit.

After the attunement, we progress through a series of Reiki exercises to practice, beginning with the Reiki Bear Project (injecting teddy bears with Reiki healing and light - these bears are later donated to children's hospitals and disadvantaged youth programs as a Karmic project reminding us of our role as healers and symbolizing how we must all share our light where it is needed). We move up to energy exchanges with plants and discuss Reiki for animals, and then we progress to self healing practices, touching lightly upon traditional Reiki share activity.

After completing 3B training , a student is considered a Reiki Master, fully prepared to build a reiki community of their own and to pass on the wisdom through classes they sponsor. Students must have completed Reiki levels 1 & 2 to participate.

In level 3A, we do a review of Reiki basics and techniques and the principals and symbols . We then are introduced to three more symbols and receive the Reiki Master attunement. A series of exercises offers many life situations where Reiki can be applied, to refine our skill set and expand our awareness of choices where Reiki can be of service to others.
Sound and Vibrational healing as well as crystal grids are reviewed, and students are invited to work with crystals and tuning forks to experiment with chakra clearing and aura smoothing along with their Reiki practice.
Students in this level receive a silk scarf as their Reiki attunement totem, and they participate in a Reiki craft project to create Reiki stones that they will take home to serve as meditation inspiration, as well as a tool to learn the correct symbols for attunements and other reiki practice.

Level one Reiki training is the foundation for understanding what Reiki is and how it can be applied to enhance and support personal health. The session begins with an introduction to the energetic body and the healing potential of Reiki. We look at the role of intention and purpose in thoughts and karmic disposition. We next explore the history of Reiki and the founders. We learn the 5 precepts of Reiki and traditional Reiki meditation. A series of energy exercises help us to feel & understand energy better. Students will be attuned to level one Reiki. After the attunement, we progress through a series of Reiki exercises to practice, beginning with the Reiki Bear Project (injecting teddy bears with Reiki healing and light - these bears are later donated to children's hospitals and disadvantaged youth programs as a Karmic project reminding us of our role as healers and symbolizing how we must all share our light where it is needed). We move up to energy exchanges with plants and discuss Reiki for animals, and then we progress to self healing practices, touching lightly upon traditional Reiki share activity. This program covers Usui reiki systems, reviewing both defined hand positions and the intuitive method.

YTT Studies Retreat
Apr 8, 2021 - Apr 11, 2021
 

The one downside of online learning is missing that special component of in person connection and having bodies to practice on while studying yoga. For this reason Heartwood offers a special course reinforcement retreat in April (optional) for those who wish to attend to get a taste of the live experience of teacher training. This affordable, long weekend retreat invites our online graduates to practice teaching, experience the ambiance of Heartwood, enjoy gong meditations and other live experiences, participate in workshops that are best delivered in person (hands on adjustments and props and modification workshops), and enjoy a special graduation ceremony. Join us to walk the labyrinth, take a class at our medicine wheel, meet your tribe in person and feel more a part of Heartwood with other online learners. This option means you can enjoy the best of both worlds, taking advantage of the affordability, flexibility and safety of remote learning, while also getting a taste of the immersion experience if you choose. The retreat option provides additional learning hours to your program and is not required for full certification. Students must be graduates of our online RYS-200 program to participate. Onsite housing is limited to 11and is dorm style. Private rooms are available close to Heartwood (Air B & B style) for a modest additional fee of 25.00 a night, payable to the host.

Prerequisite: Participants must be enrolled in or have completed one of Heartwood's Online RYS-200 courses.
