Tips for admission to Vajrasati teacher training

The process of being accepted on the course is in many ways part of the course too. Prospective trainees will usually plug in more deeply with what we are doing. This typically involves:

* attending classes
* attending courses
* attending days
* attending half days
* attending retreats
* attending Vajrasati assessments for trainees on the course
* meeting up with the course tutors
* meeting up with trainees and graduates
* reading all the content on the web site
* starting to read from the book list

Any one who wants to do the training will be considered according to suitability, but priority goes to those who:

* understand and resonate with the basic principles of Vajrasati yoga: sangha (community), shared learning, the group growing with the individuals in it, not the individuals shrinking into the group, demonstrable philosophy, safety and taking students as you find them/taking the next step from where one is.
* show an appropriate level of commitment
* have been interested for the longest
* have a long-term regular practice

It is reasonable to expect a year from request to acceptance in many cases. During the time waiting some or all of the above criteria can be met.

On resistance in practice…
‘In asana practice we may find an obvious resistance such as a strong stretch in a muscle. We can choose to ignore the sensation, usually resulting in totally the opposite result and an almost compulsive fixation with the sensation. Or we can chose to move ourselves into the sensation and work with it which ironically allows us to release from the sensation and let it go.’
