Intuition: the ability to acquire knowledge without inference or the use of reason.The word intuition comes from the Latin verb intueri which is usually translated as ‘to look inside’ or ‘to contemplate’. Intuition is thus often conceived as a kind of inner perception, sometimes regarded as real lucidity or understanding. The role our intuition plays in our lives is constant, however, it is typically a subtle, unconscious process of which we are usually unaware.
This training is designed to help the participant to understand what intuition is and how to access yours through practice and teaching. We see the practice as a harmonious blend of scientific wisdom and artful expression. With this in mind we do not train you to teach a specific sequence but rather give you the ability to tap into your true center and purpose each time you guide a room. Every human has the ability to connect to an innate wisdom that is part of the very fabric that creates them. To get there we need to clear out conditions and expectations that hold us back from our truest, connected Self.
Yoga is not intended to be any one certain way, it is a free flowing life journey toward freedom and balance, with as many faces as there are people on this planet. Carrying this awareness through our teachings allows us to work with each student in the way that they need, deepening our connection with you as an individual.
To witness Jana over the past few years is to witness a young, fiery adult undergo metamorphosis into an elegant woman, steady and soft in her power. She tapped an internal spring of love as she held the hand of her father while he drew his last breath, boldly followed her heart and moved to a new country to marry her twin flame and, shortly after, carried his child. As she gracefully navigated each and every moment with shear presence, Trust and Letting Go became some of her most profound teachers. On November 2nd, 2014 everything changed with the arrival of her son, Freddie Wilde. Check out Jana’s website for more information, www.janaroemer.com
Sarah has taught yoga for 6 years and is well studied in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture; She teaches and lives for the Art of Healing. A poet and philosopher at heart Sarah is often buried deep in a book with a cup of something steamy; her loves are Alan Watts, Rilke, Hafiz, Rumi, Marianne Williamson, and David Whyte. Though known for being a bit sassy, super geeky, a dancer, a laugher, and a lover of music, Sarah spends a lot of time in silent solitude harnessing the capacity for a deeper intimacy with life. Having a chameleon and sponge-like quality she can fit into any scene and pull information from all sources, combining them together into mystical love, anatomical, physiological, and energetic magic. Her yoga classes hold a steady energetic pulse, while shifting the rhythms of the physical body to begin peeling the mind open to the understanding that we choose how we feel and experience each moment. Sarah’s intention is always to aid in the healing process and her understanding of the energetic body creates a space for deep release and a return home to the vibration of Truth.

This comprehensive, Yoga Alliance registered training program is designed to deepen your understanding of Yoga, in order to cultivate a solid, safe and effective practice as the foundation of skillful teaching. The program emphasizes developing an embodied proficiency in the fundamental physical and theoretical principles of yoga, as well as powerful tools for the skillful application of yogic resources to enhance health and well-being for yourself and for your students.
Using Tadasana (Mountain Pose) as our starting point, we study the structure, anatomy, principal actions and bandhas involved, and proceed to apply the insights to every type of yoga pose. The training includes an introduction to pranayama, yogic meditation, mantra, mudra, yoga therapy and posture correction, yogic philosophy, world view and psychology, ethics, history and scriptures (including the yoga sutras of Patanjali).
Taught by a Yoga Therapist and higher education specialist, our training method is unique and exceptional in that it is not limited to any “style”. Drawing from a wide array of yogic practices in order to customize the practice to the practitioner, our motto is “teaching people, not poses”. In the training, we learn universal principles of alignment and practice, such that graduates of our past trainings now teach everything from Yin and Restorative to Power Vinyasa and Ashtanga with exceptional skill, due to their understanding of the foundational principles that thread through the whole practice.
During the training each trainee is given corrective poses, movements and practices tailored to her or his needs, capacities and constitution. During practice sessions we explore many different ways to practice, as well as different intensities of practice, while each practitioner is encouraged to honor the body in the process.
With exceptional attention devoted to practical training and teaching experience time, this training is designed and proven to produce effective, confident yoga teachers who are ready to teach upon graduation and stand out in the world of yoga.

Jungle Yoga – 200 Hour Teacher Training
February 28th to March 25th 2016
with Randall O’Leary
Now accepting online applications at Jungleyoga.net
We believe that students learn best through experience, so we devote plenty of time to actual practice. Our morning starts with a short ritual (which will be explained and explored) and then moves into a mantra practice. Mantras are the yoga of sound and subtle energy, which is very powerful.
After the mantras (about 20 minutes) we move into the breath practice. Breath and breathing is a very important part of the course. Every day we will dedicate some of our time to developing our vital energy through the yoga of breathing. This is one of the favourite sections of the course for many students. This section takes about 40 minutes.
We will then move into the more ‘classical’ yoga practice of the postures. The physical practice is focused on exploring the many postures, refining our technique and going deeper into the shapes. In general, we use a flowing type of vinyasa as our practice method, but not always. Each day has a different focus, so our practice is slightly different from day to day. Some days are very intense, others lighter; it all depends on what we are exploring. This takes generally 1.5 – 2 hours.
After this section, we take a short break of one hour for light breakfast. The classes resume with a lecture/ exploration which lasts about 1.5 – 2 hours. In this section, we discuss the elements of the morning’s practice and other topics which help us to understand yoga better. This is not a discussion of abstract philosophy or a wash of Latin anatomy names, but a day-by-day development of our understanding. We practice differently every day because the practice gives practical experience of the topics we explore in the discussion. Everything we do is tied-in together to form a whole experience.
The course breaks for the middle of the day and meets again at 5 in the afternoon. Here, we have another practice which ties in with the theme of the day. One night per week we also have a fire puja (ritual).

Director of Studies
Randall O’Leary has been involved with yoga since 1992 when his mother brought him to his first class. From that point on, he has been studying and practicing yoga with dedication and enthusiasm. He began teaching in India and at the Sanctuary in the mid-1990’s and has been teaching ever since.
He has studied with yoga teachers in the west in the Iyengar and Viniyoga traditions, and has since created the Jungleyoga style. He has also traveled to India over a dozen times and has a teacher in Rishikesh, Uttranchal, India. He was initiated into an ancient order of yogis in 2006 and continues the unbroken lineage of yoga traditions through the Jungleyoga style.
Our Level 1 course is aimed at giving students a deeper experience of yoga. We not only practice yoga in its many forms, we also look into the methods and techniques to understand how and why yoga works. This is useful for both students who are or wish to become teachers and for people who are simply interested in going deeper into their practice. We run a course which is designed to be fun, intelligent, transformative and interesting. Regardless of your yoga experience, there is much to be learned and explored in the course.
The course runs for 4 weeks, 6 days per week, about 6 hours to total class time per day. It is a registered 200 Hour Certified course with a certificate granted upon completion of the course.
We learn about many facets of yoga on the course. Understanding the postures and what they do is just the beginning. We also learn about the nature of the breath and the nature of the life force. We explore sound, mantra and types of universal energies that are expressed through sound. There is a bit (just a bit) of western-style anatomy and physiology as well. The classical philosophies of yoga are taught, which include the Yoga Sutras and the philosophy of Tantra. We take a week to explore the energy centres called Chakras and their effect on our lives. There are many other exciting subjects that don’t fit into any simply category.
The course starts at the fundamentals and builds up from there. The experience is cumulative, meaning that what we learn on one day will be important for what we will learn the next day. In this way, our knowledge can build as our yoga experience progresses. We also wish for students to grow and transform through the yoga. We are very open to individual expression and experience; we encourage each person to find their own unique, personal yoga.
We do not focus on practicing to become a yoga teacher (though we do offer optional classes which explore this topic). The best way to really know yoga and perhaps teach is to have a vast and full personal experience of yoga. The knowledge and experience offered will give a strong foundation for whatever it is you want to do with yoga.
