40 Hour Advanced Teacher Training

ELEMENTAL VINYASA

Early 2021, Copenhagen

Overview

Are you a new teacher and want to explore Vinyasa teaching at a greater depth?
Are you an experienced teacher finding yourself teaching the same thing over and over again?

 

This 40 hour teacher training is for qualified yoga teachers looking to add some intrigue to their classes: to dive into creativity and integrate the four archetypal forces of creation to your own classes. This process of learning includes asana, meditation, mudra, pranayam & how to set the scene bowing down to EARTH, WATER, FIRE and AIR.

How can we create a full bodied experience when teaching, far beyond asana?

Learn to harness simple tools and create masterpieces: a full spectrum of movement, sounds, devotion and intention. Two weekends to awaken subtle dynamics of energy, how to move and see beyond form.

Hello you. My name is Isabella and I am a Danish yoga teacher based in Aarhus, Jutland. As a former martial arts performer, I have major respect for all abilities and limitations of both body and mind. Yoga drew me deeper into self awareness, spirituality as well as inner growth and reflection.

 

My own yoga practice is mostly about allowing myself time and space to focus on my body, breath and state of mind. To work on my goals and challenges in a space without judgement and negativity, but with acceptance and joy from a humble mindset. When I teach, I prefer to link my classes with the traditional yoga philosophy as well as clear anatomical cueing. But there will always be room for your individual practice, no matter your prior experience.

3 Hour Chakra Workshop

Let vibrations travel from the depths of your core self to the exterior of your bodily person. In a liquid movement flow from root to crown, we will acknowledge the deeper layers of our presence and recognise our individual journeys.

 

This short movement practice will be followed by a more in depth chakra theory class, offering knowledge on each of the 7 spinal chakras. The theory behind Chakras and symbolism for human emotion and relations has broadened my perspective and opened my mind to what currently is. My yoga practice is more than often inspired by Chakra symbolism and their connected natural elements. This allows for a in depth and balanced practice as well as a combination of movement in body and mind.

 

After basic knowledge of the Chakras is established, we will dive into how to use the learned information as a way to reflect on current truths and in the relationships we form and attract with friends, family and partners. Growing in the way we perceive our relationships can help understand the emotional patterns and addictions connected to the people we have in our lives.

 

We will end with a short journaling session for you to create a dimension of further self realisation. This will also be a time to set your new knowledge into your current life situation and perspective. Let the vibrations wash over your system and allow yourself to immerse with your inner true and happy self.

Open mind

Open mind, open heart. Be ready for dynamic asana practices together, for vivid meditation and chants full of grace. To step out of comfort zones, work with strangers, to learn and grow. Step in, take a seat and allow modern and ancient teachings to sink in.

Reading List

There are no particular books required, but to open up to more creativity in your speech and to activate Vishuddhi (throat) chakra, pick up a book you haven't read. If you love words dancing out of the mystery, try some mystical poetry from Rumi or Hafiz. Or dive into trantric texts such as The Radiance Sutras. Learn the love of language.
