Why this training?

While many of us start yoga for its awesome physical benefits, at some point we want more than just the basics of classes.  We want to understand the anatomy behind what we are doing.  We want to to master handstand. We want to know what poses are good for energizing or managing stress and anxiety. At some point, we also know that yoga is changing us – making us kinder, happier, less reactionary.  So, what’s all that about?  What’s going on on my yoga mat that’s making me a better person elsewhere?  We’ll explore all of this and more in this powerful, hands-on 2 month immersion. Plan to participate fully. The program offers the opportunity not only expand your yoga practice, but engage in personal exploration to leave you with real, practical tools to enliven your whole life.

About Mindfulness Meditation:

Mindfulness Meditation is the art and science of paying attention, of listening to our hearts, minds, and the world around us; of learning to be "intimate with all things."

Mindfulness mediation is quickly gaining popularity in psychology and is increasingly seen as an alternative to meditation in treating matters of the heart and mind. It is the most scientifically researched form of meditation, with researchers publishing 600 papers on its benefits last year alone, which includes everything from increased immune response to heightened empathy to reduced emotional reactivity.

Many of us acknowledge that meditation would be a beneficial and perhaps, necessary addition to our daily regimen, but starting and keeping up a meditation practice can be very difficult. That's where this 6-week course comes in.

In this course you will learn the techniques to develop a relationship with yourself and others based on kindness and acceptance, rather than judgement. Take the time to learn beneficial skills that will last a lifetime.

Give yourself the gift of peace, quiet, insight and light this December with a wonderful retreat just for you.  The retreat will be held at Islandwood, on Bainbridge Island, showing off acres and acres of woods, and lovely lodges for a cozy winter atmosphere. 

The retreat promises a wonderful time away from the hustle and bustle of life to reconnect with what matters to you most.  This is a unique retreat where we have invited committed yogis to join the Advanced Study course students for long practices, dedicated meditation time, and space to go inside.  We will be exploring advanced asanas, while diving deep into ourselves.  For those of you attending the retreat as a retreat participant only, you will enjoy a balance of personal time and space, within the context of a mindful and caring community retreat.

The retreat includes:

  • 4 extended yoga practices
  • meditation
  • group activities
  • meals from Friday night until Sunday morning
  • Queen size bed in one of Islandood's lovely lodges

We ask that you have had a minimum yoga practice of 6-months.  You don't need to have mastered fancy postures, yet this retreat is not appropriate for the raw beginner.

Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep and refers to the conscious awareness of the Deep Sleep state. In Yoga Nidra you leave the waking state, go past the dreaming state and then progress into a deep sleep, yet all this is done while you remain awake. The state of yoga nidra is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Time spent in yoga nidra opens us to deeper clarity. It is one of the deepest of all meditations, leading us to supreme stillness and insight.
 
We invite you to come and allow Tina Templeman to guide you into a deeply restful and revitalizing practice. This restorative “inner body” yoga uses a series of guided visualizations and deep relaxation techniques to move beyond the conditioned mind into a state of expanded self-awareness. Access to the deeper realms of the mind allows us to release the sources of tension, anxiety, unwanted habits, and self-limiting beliefs and to awaken our greatest inner potential.
 
Bring your friends & family and give the gift of peace and relaxation this holiday season. No prior experience is necessary.
 
Tuition: $35.00

Most people sleep without resolving their tensions, this is termed nidra.
Nidra means sleep, no matter what or why, but yoga nidra means sleep after throwing off the burdens.
It is of a blissful, higher quality altogether.  - Swami Satyananda

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

How many people will be in our teacher training?  We limit the number of participants to 32 people, with a staff to student ratio of 1:8.  We require 16 people at a minimum to run the program.  While many applicants will be accepted, not all will be.  You must have practiced yoga for at least three months before applying to this training.   

What is the pre-requisite work?  Anyone is eligible to apply for teacher training.  Once you are accepted, you will be given your pre-requisite work, which mainly consists of reading, anatomy study and reviewing a few classes at various studios before we begin.  This is about 30 hours worth of work that you complete on your own in any way that works for you.  We recommend making the initial Application Deadline to have the most time to complete your work.

When will I hear if I am accepted?  Applications for 2015 will be reviewed and accepted within one week of each of the posted application deadlines.  At this time, you will be sent the enrollment agreement.  Upon recepeit of your enrollment agreement, you will receive an acceptance letter, a welcome packet with your pre-requisite work to begin, and we will charge you based on your application preferences.

What if I need to miss a session?   If you already know you will need to miss more than a day of training, we recommend that you wait for the next training.  It is a requirmeent of the Yoga Alliance that you receive a minimum number of contact hours for the training to apply for Yoga Alliance Certification.  It is also quite challenging to parse out the time you miss into make-up time.   Any hours missed must be made up at an extra expense of $50 per hour (this is significantly less many other teacher training programs).  We will always work with people for family emergencies and other issues that may arise.

The Be Luminous Teacher Training was a rich, powerful, engaging, illuminating experience all the way through.  But honestly, I felt I got my money's worth after just the first weekend! 

The training pushed me physically and mentally, engaged and expanded my intellect, created personal inquiry opportunities that illuminated my sense-of-self, and provided teaching opportunities with peers - all through a teaching staff that pushed me and supported me through training to be my best self and teacher!         - 2013 Participant

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

How many people will be in our teacher training?  We limit the number of participants to 32 people, with a staff to student ratio of 1:8.  We require 16 people at a minimum to run the program.  While many applicants will be accepted, not all will be.  You must have practiced yoga for at least three months before applying to this training.   

What is the pre-requisite work?  Anyone is eligible to apply for teacher training.  Once you are accepted, you will be given your pre-requisite work, which mainly consists of reading, anatomy study and reviewing a few classes at various studios before we begin.  This is about 30 hours worth of work that you complete on your own in any way that works for you.  We recommend making the initial Application Deadline to have the most time to complete your work.

When will I hear if I am accepted?  Applications for 2015 will be reviewed and accepted within one week of each of the posted application deadlines.  At this time, you will be sent the enrollment agreement.  Upon recepeit of your enrollment agreement, you will receive an acceptance letter, a welcome packet with your pre-requisite work to begin, and we will charge you based on your application preferences.

What if I need to miss a session?   If you already know you will need to miss more than a day of training, we recommend that you wait for the next training.  It is a requirmeent of the Yoga Alliance that you receive a minimum number of contact hours for the training to apply for Yoga Alliance Certification.  It is also quite challenging to parse out the time you miss into make-up time.   Any hours missed must be made up at an extra expense of $50 per hour (this is significantly less many other teacher training programs).  We will always work with people for family emergencies and other issues that may arise.

The Be Luminous Teacher Training was a rich, powerful, engaging, illuminating experience all the way through.  But honestly, I felt I got my money's worth after just the first weekend!


The training pushed me physically and mentally, engaged and expanded my intellect, created personal inquiry opportunities that illuminated my sense-of-self, and provided teaching opportunities with peers - all through a teaching staff that pushed me and supported me through training to be my best self and teacher!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this training prepare me to teach that other trainings may not offer?   We are committed to empowering you to teach NOW, not with 3 more years of practice under your belt.  In order to achieve this, you will have many teaching and feedback opportunists each weekend.  Of particular interest, the Be Luminous Yoga program offers you three opportunities to teach on video, receiving feedback from two coaches each time.  By the last time, you will teach a full 1-hour class.  Second, you will teach a small section of a live class of 40-60 people on the weekend of graduation.  Most programs offer small bits of feedback on individual poses or 5-10 minutes of teaching.  We believe you need to teach real people in real settings for longer amounts of time in order to be ready to teach.  We offer you a unique and fabulous opportunity to grow quickly with our system.

How many people will be in our teacher training?  We limit the number of participants to 32 people, with a staff to student ratio of 1:8.  We require 16 people at a minimum to run the program.  While many applicants will be accepted, not all will be.  You must have practiced yoga for at least three months before applying to this training.   

What is the pre-requisite work?  Anyone is eligible to apply for teacher training.  Once you are accepted, you will be given your pre-requisite work, which mainly consists of reading, anatomy study and reviewing a few classes at various studios before we begin.  This is about 30 hours worth of work that you complete on your own in any way that works for you.  We recommend making the initial Application Deadline to have the most time to complete your work.

When will I hear if I am accepted?  Applications for 2015 will be reviewed and accepted within one week of each of the posted application deadlines.  At this time, you will be sent the enrollment agreement.  Upon recepeit of your enrollment agreement, you will receive an acceptance letter, a welcome packet with your pre-requisite work to begin, and we will charge you based on your application preferences.

What if I need to miss a session?   If you already know you will need to miss more than a day of training, we recommend that you wait for the next training.  It is a requirmeent of the Yoga Alliance that you receive a minimum number of contact hours for the training to apply for Yoga Alliance Certification.  It is also quite challenging to parse out the time you miss into make-up time.   Any hours missed must be made up at an extra expense of $50 per hour (this is significantly less many other teacher training programs).  We will always work with people for family emergencies and other issues that may arise.

Come join Chelle Swierz and Tina Templeman this SPRING 2015 for an unforgettable yoga and surf getaway inspired by the spiritually sublime setting of Playa Los Cerritos in Baja Mexico. Combining the freedom of a vacation with the mindfulness of a retreat, we’ve created this getaway to nourish your body and feed your soul while maintaining a sense of fun and adventure. Whether you’re looking to get your zen on or master hanging ten, this getaway is about the celebration of spirit.
