Philosophy

Sequencing

Sequencing

Getting a frame work on how to put the pieces together is like playing the puzzle, once the colors are organized and you’ve got the outline you just need to see the picture! There is a format called Building the Arc that we will work from, giving you as a teacher a blueprint on how to plan timings and content

Anatomy

Anatomy

The study of anatomy deals with the study of basic structures of the body. In this training we’ll explore the major movements, bones, joints and muscles in the body; the structure, composition and function of the spine; and alignment that could put the body at risk, all in all in order to facilitate a healthy practice and understand anatomy in the context of yoga.

Pranayama

Pranayama

We are born on an inhale, and we die on an exhale - all the way inbetween we are breathing. The great thing about it is that it happens naturally, and the even greater thing is that when we learn how to control it we get more in touch with it - and at the same time - more in touch with life itself.

Ethics & History

Ethics & History

As a yoga teacher it is valuable if not necessary to reflect upon one’s ethics and approach to what yoga is and ought to be. Ethics (ethicos) meaning moral character or (ethos) make one self a foundation, accustomed place.

Reflecting especially upon one's ethos leads one to ask: Who am I as a teacher? Who do I want to be as a teacher? In order to live with these questions it seems to be necessary to dive deeper into the history of yoga. For example, why is it that yoga postures have come to dominate yoga today, when it is relatively absent throughout the history of yoga?

Voice

Voice

Your voice is your power. Voice Activation help you explore your unique vocal expression to help you sing up, speak out, and communicate clearly and authentically.The voice work is designed to create a safe container where tools for personal growth is presented including voice, music, breath, movement and tools for emotional release and empowerment.

Hands on assist

Hands on assist

There is a sacred art called Hands on assist, where you will learn how you can support a student with more than just your words. We have a toolbox with techniques we’d love to share with you, a methodology to fit every situation and make you feel comfy as you move around the room.

Mentoring

Mentoring

We believe in peer support, having a close relationship with someone who’s been exactly where you are, someone you can ask for support, inspiration and is there to give you loads of encouragement. Our mentor and assistant is Teacher Training Graduates, there to hold your hand and tap your shoulder throughout the training.
