Meditation is a journey of self-discovery to building our sensitivity to the world around us. During this retreat, we will be discovering and releasing attachments to that which is familiar and constricting to build our light and shine brighter than ever. With a heavy emphasis on meditation, self-care, yoga Nidra, and professionalism, we will study the breath in all its beauty, fluctuations, and variations, prescribing different breathing techniques for different effects.
The process of learning to teach requires that you dive into your own life, your own practice, and therefore requires that you prepare to go deep – emotionally, physically, intellectually & spiritually. There is a lot of material to cover in 1 week, so please ensure that you arrive for this experience ready to dive in and participate. Please ensure as much as possible, that you are able to address obligations and outside commitments before you arrive. Get started on your reading requirements, begin a 5-minute a-day meditation practice and start journaling the process.
There is a heavy emphasis on meditation, self-care, yoga nidra, and professionalism. So please be prepared to be on time, to have daily reading, practice, and journaling assignments, and to complete a final teaching demo with in-person feedback, and be prepared not to miss any classes. There will be time for silence, self-sadhana and if so inclined, the spa services offered at Anamaya. Be prepared to really care for yourself during this time and abstain from the internet and technology as much as possible <3
In order not to disrupt each other’s process, we will, as a group, abstain from drinking alcohol, smoking, or using drugs for the duration of the course. This training is not a time to vacation and party; think of it more like an intensive or cleanse dedicated to honest self-reflection, purification, and clarity. Time off and evenings are for you to enjoy in a healthy and conscious way, always being aware of the collective and the community we are creating during the week.
The below prics include 7 nights at Anamaya, tuition, course certificate & mostly organic, locally sourced meals, coffee, tea, and yoga! mention code: "SYI FAMILY" when registering

After specializing for over 17 years in the Emergency Room, the current state of the medical system encouraged Colynn to leave her medical career and pursue a new one, one that would impact the health of the world in a more positive way, teaching yoga. Her knowledge of the body, disease, injury, prevention and health, and her fun, easy going nature combine to create an interactive, experiential and exciting class that offers the knowledge necessary to understand body mechanics, safely instructing students through an asana practice and yet bringing awareness to the philosophical and traditional healing methods and understanding the impact of self related to physical health.
