Yoga for Personal Transformation
Do you want to:
Clear your mind
Increase your energy
Unblock stuck emotions
Or increase your strength and wellbeing?
Do you want to create a more balanced, peaceful life within our stressful modern culture?
The ancient wisdom of yoga provides a blueprint for a thriving, joyful lifestyle. Yoga is not an exercise, it is a way of life. Yogic practices help you align your mind and body to your Inner Wisdom and True Self within.
In this Yoga for Personal Transformation course you will explore pranayama (or breathwork) to create more balance, calm or energy in your life.
You’ll receive several mindfulness meditations, including mindfulness, expression, surrender, and more.
You’ll learn how to use mantras and mudras (special hand positions) to set intentions and shift energy.
You’ll learn about your chakras or energy centers, as well as techniques for energetic clearing and alignment.
You’ll explore several art projects, including mandalas, creating a surrender box, and creating your own mala beads.
You’ll also learn several asana (or poses) to use for personal transformation. The poses presented are very simple and safe poses that anyone can do. They will help you shift feelings and beliefs, increase inner strength, open your heart, improve core stability, and ground inner peace.
I am Victoria Hawkins and I will be your guide through this yoga program for personal transformation. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a 200 Hour Certified Hatha Yoga Instructor since 2008. I have been working in mental health and life guidance since 1997. I discovered yoga in 1999 looking to stay flexible and I fell in love with how it began to ease my mind and bring more balance to my life. I began studying the practices of yoga poses, meditation, breath work and mantras. I soon began sharing these concepts with my clients as I saw the value of living a lifestyle of yoga.
This course is brought to you by Transformation Academy and instructors Joeel & Natalie, who are life coach trainers with over 300,000+ students at the time of this recording. They are excited to have collaborated with instructor Victoria Hawkins to bring you this Yoga Life Coach Certification.
