300HR ADVANCED HATHA YOGA & MEDITATION
TEACHER TRAINING & MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
WITH OCTAVIO & EMMA SALVADO
SPECIAL GUEST TEACHER - ELLEN ARTHUR
WHAT PREVIOUS STUDENTS ARE SAYING
"The Practice’s 300hr teacher training is by far the most superior of all the trainings I've taken. The Practice team teaches with such knowledge, insight and devotion that it’s quite unbelievable. By far the best training I’ve done. After several trainings for the first time the whole science of Yoga landed."
"If you want to master your practice, become a dynamic force of nature in the world and receive the tools to become an extraordinary Yoga and Meditation teacher, from the depths of my heart, I recommend this training."
"This training has shaped me, shifted me, evolved me and so profoundly held me. In such wild times, I find myself sublimely still, and filled with faith. I absolutely credit my time in studentship with the Practice team, along with my collection of truly beautiful peers from around the world, with not only the practitioner and teacher I now am, but as the human and Mother I am to my baby girl.The depth of these teachings, passed on through the passion, devotion and care of the teachers, leaves you no choice but to believe in the 'magic' held within the tradition. And in life.So far beyond a standard modern training, this experience gifted me the ability to commune deeply with Self, and has left me so divinely stable, guided, fearless and reverent. Dripping in Madhu, life really is filled with the sweetest honey."
The only reason to teach Yoga, or truly practice it, is to change the world.
It is time for us, as Yogis, to step up and fearlessly share the true healing power and potency of this ancient spiritual science to a world desperately in need.
Will you stand up and be counted?
You have not come here to play small, or to live in the shadows of those who have come before you. If you are on this Earth at this critical point in human history, with a genuine hunger for spiritual growth, then it is certain that you have come here on a sacred mission and it serves nothing and no-one for you to do anything other than stand tall in your full spiritual authority.
We live in a compromised time; clouded minds and weak spines have become the status quo. It is clear for all to see that the majority of people today are inclined to take the comfortable path, the easy path, the path that doesn’t offend, or rock the boat.
This is fine, because we don’t actually need ‘the majority’ walking the path of FIRE and LIGHT in order to change the world. We just need the wholehearted, fearless few to stand up and embrace the destiny they were meant to. If you’re reading this, YES! THIS MEANS YOU!
A small, yet powerful critical mass of Soul-aligned minds will be sufficient to turn the tides for all of humanity and ensure that our children and our children’s children inherit a world worth living in.
Will you stand up, for Dharma’s sake and be counted? Will you summon your inner Fire and face the darkness in the name your children, their children and all of life’s children? Do you now see that no-one else is coming to save us? Do you now understand that if we want to live as free beings, then we must fight for our freedom, because freedom is not given ‘freely’. We must take it and we must take it NOW.
Hear this: We WILL have our freedom. Light WILL prevail once again on this sacred Earth. The only question is, FOR WHAT WILL YOU BE REMEMBERED? As a coward who did nothing? Or as one of the few courageous Souls that stood up, took the slings and arrows and sacrificed greatly for the good of all? What stories will your grandchildren tell of you a century from now?
YOU ARE BEING CALLED.
Your Soul is calling you from beyond the Ether and willing you into this Holy battle. You know in your heart you were born for this moment. Don’t waist it. RISE. Conquer your fears. Embrace your greatness, master your mind and your energy and then with full authority and conviction in yourself, share these teachings with the world.
The framework in which Yoga has been taught in the modern world is collapsing. The glossy outer luster is cracked and revealing a lifeless, empty core – lots of bling but no substance. True seekers, of which there are now more than ever before, are demanding their teachers take them deeper. Unfortunately, very few can.
ARE YOU READY FOR THIS RESPONSIBILITY?
Furthermore, in the months, years and decades to come, our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers, perhaps even our former enemies will need evolved healing and support. Healing that modern medicine CANNOT offer. This war is a spiritual war and the swords are penetrating far deeper than flesh. The healing to come must encompass the complete human being; physical, mental, energetic, and spiritual.
THIS IS WHAT YOGA IS TRULY ABOUT. AND FUCK YOGA ALLIANCE FOR STATING WE CANNOT USE THE WORD ‘HEALING’ IN OUR SYLLABUS.
If Yoga is not healing, then it is not Yoga. And if a teacher cannot address the complete person, then they are not a Yoga teacher. So again I ask you: ARE YOU READY?? The world needs your light right now.
Teachers are a dime a dozen. Become an authority. Lead the charge. LEAD. Then show others how to do the same. You must initiate the change you want to see in the world. Do not wait for others. You will die waiting. The Bhagavad Gita tells us that whatever great Souls do, the majority will also do. So do great things. Summon your light. Confront the darkness. Transform your life. LIVE FREE.
The Practice’s advanced ONLINE 300hr Teacher Training will give you the precise tools and means to achieve this. I am going to share with you EVERYTHING I KNOW and more importantly EVERYTHING I PRACTICE. Some teachers hold back the gems to keep the power balance in their favor. I say share the gems and let’s all be rich – SPIRITUALLY RICH!!
All Gurus need to go. All Yoga hierarchies need to go. Together, true seekers and those called to teach, each standing in their own God given power and glory, must learn to stand as one unit, fight together, minister the teachings together, offer the healings together, support each other, protect each other and become one family.
BLOOD MIGHT BE THICKER THAN WATER. BUT PRANA IS THICKER THAN ALL.
A spiritual family is what I am offering, forged in the fires of intense practice and crystalized in the depths of true Meditation. Together is how we claim VICTORY not just for ourselves, but for all.
So, are you in?
Our power-house, practice-transforming, life-evolving, 100% lineage-based 300hr study intensive and mentorship program is happening again ONLINE!!
Given the current state of the world, this is the perfect opportunity for dedicated students and teachers, who are already well established in their practices, to further evolve their understanding and experience of the fire-based finale of Traditional Tantric Hatha Yoga and the new horizons presented by Sri Vidya Tantra. – the knowledge stream of the Himalayan Masters.
This revolutionary new program will take you straight into the heart of the ancient Yoga tradition, its radiant texts and life-changing practices, plus also connect you in with a strong, like-minded community of diehard practitioners and teachers just like you.
To ensure that the training generates and contains the highest, most potent transformative energy possible, we are reserving spaces only for those Yogis and Yoginis who have either completed our 200hr program, or our 50hr program. We do not have the time or the liberty to fuss around – this training is straight into the fire, then far beyond it. So if you are in, be all the way in. No half efforts. No Yoga tourists. Just the Warriors ready to stand up and make a difference in the world.
You know how we operate at The Practice. When we run a program, whether online, or in-person, we go all the way and hold nothing back. No frills, no fluff, nothing but the true powerhouse, authentic teachings handed down from teacher to student in an unbroken line of oral transmission dating back thousands of years.
Like diamonds formed under the intense pressure of the last 3 years, we have become stronger and more luminous than ever. Its time to reveal our collective light and the true power held within this sacred tradition.
We will not go quietly. We will not acquiesce. We will not sit by and allow this beautiful world to be sold and sacrificed to the highest bidder. We will fight and we will win – because Kundalini Fire and Higher Consciousness are the ULTIMATE weapons and this is what we are wielding.
The extended format of this training gives us plenty of time to sink our teeth in deeply. Plenty of time to practice in a way that these practices deserve to be practiced. Plenty of time for myself and Emma to guide, mentor and connect with each and every one of you, personally.
PLENTY OF TIME TO BUILD A SPIRITUAL ARMY.
What is the difference between the foundational 200hr and 50hr programs and the advanced 300hr program?
In the 200hr program the focus was on getting stable, mastering the mind, building focus, deepening the connection to Prana and opening up the pathways between you and the sacred Fire. You were preparing yourself.
The advanced 300hr Teacher Training offers you the crucial next steps on the path of traditional Yoga, aligned to the ways of the ancient Sages. If your intention is to authentically represent the Yoga Tradition and both practice and teach with AUTHORITY, substance, power and precision, then these teachings are non-negotiable.
They will legitimately anchor you to your ultimate inner power source, shape your mind into the mind of a true Meditator and guide you in the most meaningful and enduring way to that part of your being that exists beyond all fear, doubt, worry and confusion – The light of the Eternal Self.
This is not a gimmick. Nor am I saying these things because they sound appealing. Modern Yoga has lied to us and put these things out of reach.
Not for those who practice correctly. There is a precise science to access and activate Kundalini in a safe and systematic way. Just as there is a precise way of touching in on and bathing in the joy and wisdom-infused light of the Soul through Meditation.
This is what we want to share with you. And this is what we want you to go out and share with the world.
THIS COURSE WILL COVER:
THE PRECISE SYSTEM FOR TRANSFORMING KUNDALINI SHAKTI (DORMANT POWER) INTO PRANA SHAKTI (ACTIVATED POWER)
In addition to the 7 stages of Moon Sun Fire, there are 7 further stages within the Fire stage itself, aimed at systematically calling forward our dormant power and creative potential in a safe and sustainable way. These 7 stages will form the backbone of the training.
RAJA YOGA – THE ROYAL PATH
The highest path of Meditation within the entire Yoga tradition, as taught by Sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra – it is the direct path to the higher frontiers of lower Samadhi, experienced as joy, inner light, stabilized presence and higher awareness. Learn to practice and teach this life changing system.
RUDRA YAGA – MASTERING THE INNER AND OUTER SACRED FIRE
The Sacred Fire is the unchanging cornerstone of Tantric Sadhana. This training will guide you in setting up both an internal and external Fire ritual using 100% traditional protocols, Mantras and preparatory practices.
STUDY AND PRACTICE OF KEY YOGIC AND TANTRIC SCRIPTURES
To further evolve and solidify our connection to the Yogic and Tantric worldview, together we will embark on a deep exploration into some of the most important Yogic texts of all time. Furthermore, we will practice the methods hinted at within these sacred pages. Texts include The Yoga Sutra, Bhagavad Gita, Rig Veda, Netra Tantra and selected Upanishads.
10+ ADDITIONAL ADVANCED TANTRIC HATHA YOGA KRIYAS
Experience and learn to teach a new and powerful set of Tantric Meditation Kriyas for healing, empowerment and awakening, including Master-practices and the extraordinarily powerful ‘Pancha Laya’ Kriyas, designed to rapidly dissolve Karmic impurities, activate our dormant power and generate a Pranic force-field surrounding the body which vitalizes, heals and protects us from all negativity.
Receive invaluable instruction on how to begin, or evolve your personal Mantra Japa Meditation practice, including new insights and teachings surrounding the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra. We will also study and learn the ‘Sri Suktam’ Mantra from the Rig Veda, which pulses at the radiant core of Sri Vidya in praise of the Divine mother.
Develop your practice of Yoga Nidra, and learn how to teach the fundamentals, including practices for healing, cognition, sankalpa and awakening.
ADVANCED PRANAYAMA AND PRANIC HEALING
Deepen your Pranayama practice, plus gain further mastery of the Vayus by learning the specific Mudras and Mantras that individually support each one. This training also focuses on the cultivation of your own innate healing potential using specific Pranayama techniques.
MUDRAS OF THE HIMALAYAN MASTERS
Learn the practices performed by the Masters in the caves of the Himalayas. These Mudras will empower you like few other things on Earth can and alter the way you see yourself, your practice and experience your life.
ADVANCED TEACHING AND LECTURING WORKSHOPS
Week by week up-skilling sessions focused on mastering your teaching and lecturing and moving you towards being able to precisely and skilfully share the radiant insights of Tantric philosophy and its powerful methodology with your students.
SWASTHA: TO BE IN PERFECT HEALTH WITH OURSELVES
Deepen your study of the key principles of Ayurveda. This module focuses on the importance of Ayurvedic practices as a way of life and to support self-healing. Topics include Sub-Doshas, Gunas, Agni and Dinacharya, Dhatus and Srotamsi, the Western / Eastern Connection, Nutrition and Cleansing Routines.
PERSONALISED MENTORSHIP AND PRACTICE GUIDANCE
Most importantly! We are here to help you deepen your practice and teaching and offer you personalized guidance in how to create powerful, sacred and long-term Sadhanas for yourself and your students.
The bulk of the training will run over weekends, spread across two weekends per month, plus weekly midweek check-ins and individual mentoring sessions along the way.
The lectures will be run in real-time via ZOOM. Each session will be available for download approximately 4 hours after the class has finished. There is a requirement for all students to attend a minimum of 30% of the sessions LIVE.
To ensure an unbroken transmission, the majority of practices will be pre-recorded and uploaded several hours before their scheduled time, so you have the option to practice earlier if you wish.
For all lecture sessions not attended live, a short summary review of the class is required in dot-point form (3-5 dot-points). These summaries are to be handed in at the end of each fortnight and will contribute towards CERTIFICATION.
SCHEDULE – All times listed are in reference to BALI time.
Weekend Sessions – 12 to 15 hours per weekend.
Starting Friday December 1 2023
Friday 5:00pm – 8:00pm
Saturday 11:00am – 3:00pm & 5:00pm – 8:30pm
Sunday 11:00am (90min practice) & 6:00pm (2hr lecture)
Every Wednesday 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Sunday April 21 2024 5.00pm – 8.00pm
In many ways, this extended, online schedule is preferable to the intensive 6 week in-person format, particularly from the standpoint of practice. Master practices can be integrated over days and weeks rather than touching in on them for a single practice before moving on. In this way, the level of integration will be superior and the foundation you create for your practice, your teaching and indeed your life will be unshakable.
I truly hope you feel called, as I do, to embark on this journey into the radiant core of the Tantric tradition with myself and Emma. I promise you, we will invest ALL of ourselves into it.
