This 100-hour advanced training is part of Lorraine’s new suite of courses devoted to continuing development for the qualified teacher or advanced practitioner and this is a rare opportunity to study and practice with Lorraine in the UK.

During the training, you will work with tantra, sacred dance, fire ceremony, devotional kirtan, and opening your voice. You will deepen your relationship with the Yoga of wisdom (Jnana) and the Yoga of devotion (Bhakti) by working directly and in depth with two of the great wisdom goddesses: the Mahavidyas and their divine feminine energies, Chinnamasta, and Matangi.

Engage in slow vinyasa, pranayama, and meditation; perform special women’s rituals, learn and grow together within a non-dual teaching framework.

⁣“I feel finally in touch with my femininity. I’ll be grateful to you until the end of my physical life and eternally with my soul. What I feel is so deep and profound, it’s hard to describe with words. It’s changing my world.”⁣ — Elodie Geles, France

Bhakti Yoga | /bhākti/ | भक्ति | the yoga of devotion

During this advanced training, alongside the study of Jnana Yoga, Yasia Leiserach will be offering a deep dive into Bhakti Yoga.

Bhakti Yoga is one of the limbs of yoga, the aspect that places surrendering to Love, the Heart, as a root to the Divine. Bhakti Yoga. /bhākti/ - भक्ति. The yoga of devotion.

We will specifically be doing a more in-depth study of the power of Kirtan as a way to meet the many faces of the Divine. We will also explore sacred dance using movement as another way to connect deeply to the Heart and offer our Love through the moment of the Body, another act of surrender to the Divine. You do not need to know how to dance to participate.

The aim of these studies to to give ourselves a deeper experience of embodied Love and Surrender to the Divine.

Kirtan is a whole movement of its own, the practice of devotional singing, it is a non-denominational practice and you do not need to be able to sing or have a ‘good’ voice in any way to participate.

During the course Yasia will also be introducing Voicework, an approach to supporting and developing your voice, providing you with some simple ways to open and empower your voice, and use this is a tool to connect to your heart and pour the devotion of your heart into your voice.

The aim of the course is to give you some of the basic principles of Bhakti yoga and to experience the power of mantra and chant both for your own practice and for sharing with your students should you wish to, to open your voice and develop your confidence in using your voice to teach.
