Description


An Authentic Classical Indian Yoga Program Focused on Self-Awareness, Self-Discovery & Self-Realization

Connecting Head, Heart & Hands to the Cosmic Heart


Having Maitreyi as a teacher and healer is a unique experience for many reasons. You can feel her deep understanding about mind, body and spirit in a very natural, relaxed way and it is easy to access. The tradition of Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda and Hinduism is deeply rooted in her presence, which defines her singular mastery. She also feels like a good friend. She understands how the old wisdom can blend with the current mindset in society, giving students very real tools, in a totally demystified way and out of the usually strict and rigid religious protocols. She's not only a loving person but also inspires others to be in love and create friendly communities . This in my opinion is the very best contribution that can be done: to help individuals to create healthy spaces and supporting social evolution.


I'm profoundly thankful to get the chance to learn, talk, laugh and feel with her.

- Jorge Vigara - Spain, Vancouver


"Many of us build a tall building without building a strong and stable foundation and wonder why life, be it relationships or work crashes at the smallest disturbance or we live our entire lives walking on eggshells. When things crumble, I take it as an opportunity to go back to the foundation. That is what real yoga teaches us, to go back to the foundation again and again and not be afraid to build a stronger sense of inner security and being."

- Yogacharini Maitreyi, Founder of Arkaya & Lead Guru for the program



Experience a completely different way of learning than just the intellectual in this healing & mindfulness Arkaya Yoga Teacher Training. This self-awareness and enlightened leadership program will help you to build a more conscious relationship with yourself, through:

CLASSICAL YOGA - jathi, kriya, mantra, asana, pranayama, different classical yoga streams, sankalpa, applied yoga philosophy and Yoga psychology.

MINDFULNESS

MULTIDIMENSIONAL HEALING - Heal yourself and others. Includes energy healing.

TRADITIONAL TANTRA - Balancing the masculine and feminine within.

EMBRACING your vulnerability and EMBODYING your highest potential.

Cultivating SELF-AWARENESS, SELF-DISCOVERY & SELF-REALIZATION.

INTEGRATING THE HEAD, HEART AND HANDS



"Yoga is not just about cultivating a flexible body, but having the flexibility to realign with ones' expanse."

- Yogacharini Maitreyi, Founder of Arkaya & Lead Guru for the Program


The Arkaya Yoga, Mindfulness & Healing Teacher Training is steeped in Classical Yoga, the Siddha mystical traditions of south India and traditional Tantric practices that help one reconnect to life. Yogacharini Maitreyi - founder of Arkaya and lead guru for the program - has been immersed in the yogic life since her childhood in India. She is ceritified formally and is highly regarded in the world Yoga community. She has shared the deeper dimensions of Yoga for two decades in India and around the world.

Traditional Tantra is the Way and Alchemy of the Heart. It is a channeling and refinement of emotions, impulses and drives through the purification tools which lead into lightness and joy. You will be balancing the Shive (masculine/consciousness principle) and Shakthi (feminine/power principle) within and aligning with the bliss field. This will automatically allow for traumas to be cleared, old unhealthy habits to be dissolved and to build a strong foundation of resilience, ease and grace.

This program will benefit both beginners and teachers of all levels and traditions; anyone who wants to go deeper ito Yoga and self-discovery, incorporate mindful practices, learn correct sequencing and Sanskrit pronunciation.

Maitreyi Profile Picture

Maitreyi has called Vancouver home for the last two years, after feeling called to build more community while training Arkaya Yoga teachers and healers in and around the city. She greatly enjoys community and communion.


"The way most Yoga is taught today is like taking a plane and using it only on the runway... and Tantra taught by childish minds, obsessed with coloured cotton candy!

- Yogacharini Maitreyi


Program Benefits & What You Will Learn

This is essentially a SELF AWARENESS program which enables your Light, lightness and joy to shine through by giving you a structure and technology for evolution.

The Guru-student relationship. You will learn in a guru tradition which is how yoga has traditionally been absorbed. The guru is a channel in guiding you to re-parent yourself.

The difference between yoga exercise and Yoga. You will absorb the true implications and benefits of the yogic path. You tap into effortless effort while seeing how the yoga class is a structure for life. Arkaya yoga allows you to celebrate life in all its glory and tap into your childlike mirth and goodness. Many positive and subtle paradigm shifts will occur.

Multidimensional alignment and healing. Become sensitive to prana or chi or life force and learn to heal yourself and others.

The real meaning of Tantra. Tantra from a perspective of working with the Shiva and Shakthi, feminine and masculine, yin and yang within yourself.

The Yoga of sound. Chanting Manthra (sacred sounds) with correct pronunciation and intonation. These sounds have the capacity to release old stagnation in the system that cause physical, emotional or mental disease. This creates more ease in your life. The Yoga of Sanskrit with correct pronunciation is included in this.

A transformative environment and practices. This helps you to understand and align with the different dimensions you exist in. This increases your self-worth infinitely and will reflect in all areas of your life. You attune to access the great wisdom field and learn to keep that connection. This allows you to expand consciousness and download solutions to life’s challenges.

The full-spectrum of Yoga. You will use and properly apply various classical tools like mantra, jathi, kriya, asana, mudra, pranayama and sankalpa to discover and reconnect to your deeper dimensions.

Rare practices. Learn the depth of practices and principles for deep subconscious cleansing which are subtle yet powerful. This may bring to the surface unresolved traumas, suppressed emotions and darkness that some may find confusing and painful. This can cause you to want to run away from the discomfort or project the inner struggle onto those around you if you are not aware. When you clear it you will find a new layer of lightness and ease in your system and be free of that layer of limitation.

Stability & balance. You will learn the value of balancing the root and second chakras. This builds commitment. When you do this you can clear and dissolve traumas. This will happen in a safe, gentle, down to earth space. It is important to be aware that self judgements, internal enmeshment or armouring can impede this process. This clearing which fully allows you to embody your highest potential is the greatest service you can do for yourself as well as the world. Get your foundation right before you want to jump steps or get hung up on spiritual fantasy.

Slowing down is speeding up. Experience the value of consciously slowing down, synchronizing and synthesizing to speed up your evolution.

The yoga class is a structure for life. You will learn correct sequencing of an Arkaya Yoga Class and how the class becomes a structure for life. Through the program and the practices, you will begin embodying and exuding what you have absorbed. Arkaya teachers learn to teach from their being and not just from an intellectual understanding. Yoga philosophy, Yogic nourishment, Yoga psychology and Yoga as a way of life - living a yoga life 24/7.

Applying the tools to your own life. You will not only learn about the classical yogic tools but also how to apply them to become more connected with yourself and life. This will balance and enhance all areas of your life, including relationships, work, leadership skills and your grounding in the material word. You will learn that Yoga encompasses everything and this helps you to make conscious choices about all areas of your life. You will manifest and meditate from an integrated space and learn to live a life of love.

Sharing and teaching as part of your evolution. You will be ready to teach yoga with an understanding of the foundational principles and the deeper implications of this life-path.............. and much more!
