“Strala is an elegantly simple and sophisticated way to move our breath, our body, and our whole self into the state we need, to create who we want to be: the optimal expression of ourselves.”

– Dr. Rudolph Tanzi – Chair of Neurology at Harvard and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital

 

 

What’s Here

This training includes 28 special instruction and practice video sessions, where we’ll share together in a group this path and practice for connection, healing, and creating community.  These sessions are all recorded, so you can join now any time, go all at your own pace, and keep them forever as a resource.  It’s a way to renew your creativity and inspiration, even in the middle of all kinds of challenge.

Access to our private online group specially created for this Create Community training, so we can share questions and experiences together just like our in-person courses, right alongside these instructional video sessions, which are all recorded so you can watch and review whenever you like.

A forever resource. This is all yours to use before, during, and after our training time together here. Even once you complete everything, it doesn’t go away. Everything remains here for you to keep using as a resource for practice and support, whenever you need it.

This training is a curve back toward your most natural self. It’s time for you to gain what you specifically need at this moment in your life. Whether you’re craving some time just for yourself, a jump-start to your passion, insight for your practice or leading, entering a new phase of life, or simply feel the urge to be here for a reason you’re unable to articulate yet, you are invited to lean into these weeks of ease and connection. I am happy to welcome you all here.

 

 

How It Works

All our trainings and retreats have a unique curriculum that’s different from what’s covered in other 100, 200, and 500 hour programs. So what you learn here will be all new approaches, practices, and skill-sets, and makes a nice continuation from any previous studies with Strala or anywhere, without repetition. You’ll always discover new ways to take good care of yourself, find harmony and ease in your body and life, and give this to the people you lead.

All this begins with you.  You’re always leading what have, how you are, in everything you do. It’s in how you get around a room, how you get around your life, that people follow. Much more than what you say.

And it’s wonderful, magical, when what you say agrees with what you do.  So we’re coming together here to share this as a practice.  To create the ground we all need to be how we want to be, first in our selves, and then for each other.

It’s not always complicated, but it’s also not easy.  It takes some slowing down, simplifying, subtracting the noise around us and in us.  From here we see where we are, and discover who it is we’re meant to be.  What are you good at?  What do you love?  It’s in these simple practices to find this, and grow stronger, more capable, in who we really are.

The unique set of skills you develop – for connecting with yourself and others, unblocking your energy, healing what needs healing and accomplishing challenge with ease – uncovers your ability to create the life you want, and be an inspiring leader to the people around you.

 

 

Who Is This For

Everything we do is designed to help people begin where they are, and develop the concrete practices that carry us where we want to go. So wherever you are is a perfect place to begin. This is true for all of our courses, including this online training.

The people joining our trainings and retreats are a wonderfully diverse and inspiring group. They range from 16 to over 80. They’re from dozens of countries worldwide. They are entrepreneurs and chief executives, professors and librarians, scientists and researchers, studio owners and fitness instructors, yoga teachers of every style, psychologists and physiotherapists, life and health coaches, doctors and lawyers. They are moms and dads, daughters and sons, and lifelong friends.

Some are relative beginners, some are long-time practicers and teachers.  Some want to teach, and some want to progress with their own yoga.  Wherever you are now is a great place to begin.  We’re lucky to have this rich diversity, it makes wonderful ground for real-world learning and sharing.

You might join for your profession, for teaching yoga or tai chi, or you might join just for you.  Whatever your purpose, we have this time to share a set of holistic skills and practices, that carry across your everything you do.

 

What You Get

Approaches, Practices, Skill-sets: We’ll explore practices to discover and enliven who and how you are, in everything you do, using Strala’s approach to yoga, tai chi, qigong, and meditation.  You’ll carry with you something both simple and straightforward enough to practice every day, right where you are, in whatever you’re doing.  And powerful enough to change everything.  It all begins with you.

Instructional Video Sessions. This training provides 28 hour-long video sessions, plus additional practices and homework given within these sessions, all sharing together in a group this path and practice for connection, healing, and creating community. It’s a way to renew your creativity and inspiration, even in the middle of all kinds of challenge. All of these video sessions are recorded, so you can always begin this training whenever you like, and go all at your own pace.

Private Online Training Group.  You’ll also have access to our private online group specially created for this training time and group, so we can share questions and experiences together just like our in-person courses.

Community: Once we’ve completed this time together, you’ll also have access to our other private online community, this one for Strala graduates worldwide. It’s our way to keep connecting with each other, and with Tara and Mike, for ongoing questions, sharing experiences, and progress.

Certification: We provide a 50+Hour Yoga Leadership Training Certification upon completion of this training, which includes a formal Diploma, and a profile on our website that documents all your hours, coursework and degrees completed. The yoga alliances are now accepting online certification. Harvard, Stanford, so many top universities have long been offering really wonderful online education, it just makes good sense to learn from the top people in each field, from wherever you are. So it’s nice that the alliances are supporting this now.

Strala is credited by the Chair of Neurology at Harvard, and Director of the Genetics Research and Aging Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, by mind-body-medicine pioneer Dr. Deepak Chopra, and by the global Yoga Alliance Professionals.

Continuing Education Credit: This training provides you with 50 hours of credit, which also fulfills the additional study and practice components in our in-person 200+Hour Yoga Leadership Training, and 300+Hour Advanced Leadership Training.

Lifetime: Inspiring and uplifting leadership – creating the space for ground-breaking achievement in your own life and the lives of the people you lead – is the practice of a lifetime. When you learn to release stress, find harmony in your body and peace in your mind, heal what needs healing, and accomplish challenge with ease, you have something amazing to share.

 

 

Common Questions

Q: Can I call my class Strala after taking this Intensive?

A: Yes of course, once you’ve completed this training, you can join Strala Home for continuing education.  It’s our way of sharing, growing, and progressing together in these skill-sets, practices, and approaches, for connecting and helping.  As long as you’re here, you can use the name Strala Yoga as your class title.  Often teachers and care providers also keep going each year or every few years, with another online or in-person training here.  Always what we share is new each year, so you’re never repeating hours, and everything builds toward a more advanced degree and certification.  Please click here to start with your Strala Home classes, we’re so happy for this place to keep supporting each other and practicing together each week.

Q: I’ve already done my 200 Hour Yoga Training, is this the same?

A: We follow a completely unique curriculum grounded in East Asian Healing and Tai Chi, address yoga sequencing as a vocabulary of movements rather than poses as end points, create connections based in Shiatsu principles for body position, inclusion, and creating a safe environment. There’s more, but hopefully this clears up fear of repeating material. What you’ll learn here is all new, and makes a wonderful addition to any previous studies.  And every year we share a new curriculum in all our courses, so always we can keep growing and progressing together.

Q: I’m not interested in teaching yoga but I want more ease in my life, is this for me?

A: Absolutely. We all deserve to feel better, and bringing sustainable ease into your life is a perfect reason to join in. Fair warning, once you start walking around embodying ease, folks are going to start asking you to show them how you’re doing it. We’ve had quite a few scientists, moms, school teachers, actors and performers join these programs for personal reasons, and end up sharing yoga in creative ways with those around them. A big part of my goal is de-mystifying leading yoga as something for a select few. Just like cooking, once you know and love the recipe, it’s impossible not to share.

You can always email us any questions through info@stralayoga.com.

Tara Stiles is the founder of Strala. Strala is practiced in more than 100 countries, and thousands of people are leading Strala in studios, gyms, and schools worldwide. Even more Strala training graduates bring what they learn to their office, team, healing practice, and across all of life. The mission we share is to help people accomplish far more, through softening and connecting with our creativity and purpose.

Tara has authored several best-selling books including Slim Calm Sexy Yoga, Yoga Cures, Make Your Own Rules Diet, Strala Yoga, and Guiding Strala, all translated and published in several languages. She has been profiled by The New York Times, Times of India, The Times (UK), and featured in most major national and international magazines. Harvard profiled Tara‘s work in a case study, and she has spoken with students at Harvard and New York University about her experience, and approaches to creativity and leadership.

Tara supports The Alliance for a Healthier Generation and the American Heart Association initiative to combat childhood obesity, as well as BOKS, which together are bringing Strala classes to more than 30,000 schools around the United States and Canada.

Tara studied classical dance with ABT Principal Rory Foster, and choreography with Paul Taylor original member and world renowned master Eileen Cropley. She is married to Strala co-founder Mike Taylor.

 

Mike Taylor is the resident healer and co-founder of Strala. Named “Best Mover” by MindBodyGreen, he’s practiced Eastern movement and healing techniques, including tai chi, qigong, and shiatsu, for more than three decades.

In his younger years, Mike challenged centuries of reasonable and well-tested martial traditions in hundreds of competitions, by applying unruly imagination to a world where rules were unbreakable. As he got older, he continued on to medical applications of the mind-body connection in university, studying mind-body medicine at Harvard.  After running into walls with standard medical practice, Mike left his healthcare roots and turned to mountaineering. He worked at a steel mill, joined a web company, then founded a biotech software company.

Now Mike has found his way back to health care done right, helping people let go of stress in their bodies and minds, and become their own best caregivers. Mike still climbs a few mountains in his spare time, and is married to Strala co-founder Tara Stiles.

Open the door to a whole new way of connecting, sharing, and growing with everyone in your life.

These trainings are an incredibly rewarding life-long adventure of mutual support, and inspiring accomplishment. We’re lucky to have this in our lives. Thank you everybody, it’s so exciting to get started with you here.

Your breath is always there, ready to carry you. Take a moment, soften, and let your breath move with you.#stralayoga #softness #taichi #wellbeing
Just as much as this can be in your yoga and tai chi, softness is an all day, everyday, everywhere practice you can carry into your kitchen, meeting room, or wherever you’re getting around each day. It takes practice, to replace all our old habits like tension and rigidity, with new habits of moving well, in harmony with our whole selves.

Grateful for each and every breath. Let it all go. 🌟  #stralayoga #yogaflow #wellbeing #meditation

When things are easy, relax. When things are hard, relax even more. Your neurological and chemical state determines the impact an event will have on you. So when things get hard, it’s even more important that we support ourselves to stay easy inside. It takes practice, it’s important in so many ways, and we can do it. 🌿 #stralayoga #wellbeing #meditation #yoga
Guide @juliackrebs reminding us to soften and connect with nature 🌿 #stralayoga #yogaflow #yoga #wellbeing
It was a tough lesson for me to learn that I was doing hard things, the hardest way. Like so many of you, I want to do a good job, help people be happy and have a good life as well. We all have a breaking point and hopefully it’s while something is repairable. I noticed things were hard and felt like I needed to work harder, when I really needed to learn how to be softer. I leaned into my family of guides, dove into #shiatsu with #samberlind and #taichi with Mike. Hard to learn from your partner so I read all the books and practiced on my own for a long time. I took what I learned into everything and everything improved. I learned how to move better when I practiced and led yoga and every other moment. I learned how to soften myself and allow my breath to move me. I realized how silly and not useful is to be so egotistical and jump ahead of my breath when all the while the breath is right there, waiting for you to soften so it can lift and actually carry you with every inhale, and take the pressure off and make it easier to be right here, with every exhale.
Once you experience softness you don’t go back to force. There is no fight, no argument, no opposition. It is just irrelevant and not useful. Something to back away from. Force creates isolation and disconnection in yourself and makes hard things harder. Yes you can do hard things hard, but you will break, and you are spreading force around as you go. It’s not your fault.
Softness creates connection, harmony and possibilities for you and the world around you.
If this is new for you and pulls you in a bit, here is a simple practice to experience.
Move yourself around from your middle until you are actually comfortable.
Soften yourself physically, mentally, emotionally.
Notice how you feel.
Notice your breath moving you like a big ball, globe, out and in. Notice up and down become out and in.
Take a big inhale and lift your arms up. Wait for your inhale to do this for you. #softness #taichi #yoga #stralayoga #wecandohardthings
Exhale and relax your arms down.
Notice how you feel.
Hang here for a bit. Don’t jump up.
Big hugs and lots of softness.
♥️
