Devi Yoga Teacher Training – Frequently Asked Questions

I was blessed to be part of Alexina’s Devi Yoga teacher training on beautiful Galiano island in August 2016. This powerful, moving class has inspired me and taught me more about myself and the one that flows through us all. I look forward to sharing this knowledge with others in the very near future.

Thank you Alexina for joining this group and offering your knowledge, wisdom and beautiful, sweet energy towards the empowerment and raising up of this magical group of women. I have seen all their eyes light up from new fire in their hearts and their arms become strong to hold new and sacred intentions that before this workshop perhaps felt out of reach. I have watched all of this with new fire in my own eyes, and new intention held in my hands. Thank you for this gift.

How does this differ from the Devi Yoga Workshop?

This is an actual teacher training program. It is 2 days. You learn everything in the workshop but from the perspective of learning how to teach it to others. We cover the same Goddesses and everything in much more in depth. Below is the material we cover- but remember you learn how to share this.

  • About 14 Primary Goddesses and their associated qualities (ie. Lakshmi: bringing in good fortune, Kali: letting go of what no longer serves; Radha: Divine Love)
  • How to strengthen these qualities in you for greater wholeness, peace, healing
  • Postures or movements for each Goddess (which result in a sequence which creates a class)
  • Mantras associated with each Goddess
  • Meditations to Connect with each Goddess
  • Mudras (hand gestures that activate various energy centers)
  • Chakra Balancing for yourself
  • Pranayama Practice (breathing)
  • How Devi Yoga can help common women’s health issues
  • Plant medicines that can help common women’s health concerns
