This powerful year long program will explore the Yama's and Niyama's through the lens of being a yoga teacher.
*How do they show up in your life?
*How do they inspire you in your role as an teacher?
*How can the Yama's and Niyama's support you in your practice, in your teaching, and in your life?
These 12 months are designed to deepen your yoga practice and expand your learning and teaching through a devoted exploration of ancient wisdom teachings. The classes unfold month by month to support each other as you move through the journey. Each month will focus on a different Yama or Niyama with a video class offered at the beginning of the month and a second video class is offered half way through the month to deepen your understanding of the principals and explore more of who you are.
In this course you will receive:
*Two monthly video yoga classes that include wisdom teaching, Kriya's (yoga postures series) inspired by the Yama's and Niyama's, and meditations to enhance your understanding of the principles.
*Journal or drawing exercises to help you see yourself more clearly.
*Weekly reflections and homework to observe yourself in action through the month and build momentum with your practice.
*A monthly group call to share deeper insights and experiences with peers and receive support on the journey. Group calls will be a set time each month.
*30 CE Credits for yoga teachers upon completion of the program
All levels are welcome and encouraged! (Not-yet Yoga teachers also welcome to participate ;-)
Step more into your authentic self and bring these principles off the mat and into your life!

Paula took her first yoga class in 1995 after having twins and becoming a single parent of three. Her curiosity about the breath, movement and it's connection to relaxation, kept her coming back to the mat until 2005 when she decided to formally study yoga as a science and philosophy. Paula completed her RYT500 after studying Hatha Yoga and Kundalini yoga and began teaching in and around the Thunder Bay area.
Paula's passion for learning has brought her back to New Mexico each year for more training in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. She has completed her 2nd level training in the summer of 2015 and continues to study Numerology for the 10 bodies.
Paula has enjoyed teaching women's classes and retreats, teaching yoga for stress relief in the workplace, specialty workshops for transformation and reaching people in need for change. Her students continue to inspire her to grow as an individual and a teacher.
Paula's classes are taught in a style that is usually doable for all levels. Her grace and presence gives students permission to embrace where they are and move forward courageously, compassionately and truthfully on and off the mat. She recognizes that people today need simple, doable tools to relieve stress, boost health, relax and find inner peace. She believes that yoga can help with all of that and more.
Thank you for choosing to take part in this journey of Self Exploration. It is my pleasure to support you as you built greater awareness and understanding of who you are in this magnificent world. Namaste Paula
