So excited for next year’s Amba Teacher Training! One of the unique elements of the Amba School’s teacher’s trainings, is teaching from only what you embody, which is key to being grounded and confident as a teacher. I teach women to be guides from sharing that which they know in their bones and feel in their tissues. Much of the Amba School’s teacher training is experiential, because if you don’t have a whole system experience of something, you cannot teach it. You can talk about the concept of it. You can know the concept. You can pass on the concept. But you cannot pass on the actual experience of something unless you KNOW it cellularly.
One example is the chakra system. In many yoga training schools, students first learn about chakras through reading about them in a book. The heart chakra is green and connected to the air element. The solar plexus is yellow, and so on. When I teach about the chakras in the Amba School, I first guide women into sensing them from within them. They spend hours going inside of each area, feeling it for themselves, before being introduced to outside concepts.
This way, when Amba Teachers go out in the world to teach, they are teaching from what they know that they know, from experiencing the inner terrain first-hand, and not just repeating a great idea that they read it somewhere, or heard in a class. #embodiment #yogini #sacredfeminine #goddessrising #earthmedicine #shakti #womensupportingwomen #wombyn
