Sthira: Stability from the Ground Up

 Module A | 150 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, he defined the relevance of the terms Sthira and Sukha in relation to the 8 fold path of yoga. Yoga means to yoke or to join together in balance and harmony. We need both the strength and fortitude of Sthira (stable, durable, lasting) along with the ease and grace of Suhka (ease, gentle, virtuous) to set a healthy foundation for our yoga practice and for cultivating a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

The thirst to continue learning is the keystone of being a great yoga teacher. The desire to be a perpetual student reveals an open, curious mind and a voracious appetite for advancing your knowledge of yoga; for both your own self growth and for the benefit of your students.

In Module A, Sthira: Stability from the Ground Up, the foundation is set for expanding your holistic comprehension of the history and philosophy of yoga. We examine the anatomy of the lower limbs with a focus on the standing postures. It is essential to understand the structures of our physical base so that we can properly root our feet before moving into the advanced hand balancing postures, covered in Module B.
