We are very excited to finally offer another advanced course for experienced and enthusiastic yogis who want to take their sadhana and/or their teaching to another level. If you have done a TTC already and really want to learn more, for the love of learning and growing your yoga, this course is for you!
This 2 week course immerses us in exploration of pranayama and life force, Traditional tantric internal meditations, advanced asana and Ayurveda. Each day will have 2.5 hours of morning practice, covering postures, breaths, bandhas, mudras and mantras. Each day builds on the one before it, and we progress gradually to greater depth, challenge and intensity.
After breakfast, we talk about fascinating subjects such as Mantra, Yantra and Tantra, Ayurvedic Healing, Yoga Sutras, Elements and much more. Afternoon we will have another practice, further building on what we have learned earlier. We will also have regular fire ceremonies, called Homa, at night on the beach, under the stars. This is a very special and beautiful ritual where we use mantras to commune with the hidden realities of life.
If you are an experienced yogi with a lasting dedication to yoga and want to experience a taste of the more profound levels of yoga, join us. The teacher Randall is a dedicated explorer and student of the paths of traditional Tantra, Swara and Hatha yoga as well as mantra, ritual and Ayurveda. He has practiced for over 30 years and brings his experience to you in a digestible, accessible and fun form.
Randall has been a dedicated explorer of Yoga since 1991. Alongside his studies of classical Hatha Yoga, Randall has studied a variety of styles including Iyengar, Jivamukti and Viniyoga.
Randall began teaching in 1995, and began the Jungle Yoga Teacher Training School which delivered 200 Hour & 300 Hour Teacher Trainings for over 10 years, merging into the Swara Yoga Academy in 2018.
Randall’s teaching style is primarily focused on cultivating an asana practice that builds & sustains a high level of Prana – our life force energy. Inspired through his studies of Tai Qi and Viniyoga, Randall shares his unique approach to Pranayama, which he called Swara Yoga. This system gradually deepens into Advanced Pranayama sequences which allow his students access to a comprehensive, embodied understanding of the infinite power within the breath.
Randall’s classes are enriched with philosophy stemming from his studies of Hatha Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda & Indian Mysticism, and are balanced by his unapologetically playful nature and love for Reggae music.
In 2006, after many years studying with his Guru in India, Randall was initiated into the ancient Indian spiritual order of Sadhus and is honoured to share many unique tools from his sacred tradition.
It is his aim to inspire every student to pursue a practice that is overflowing with energy and joy, that spills out into their world and transforms their relationship with life itself.
