FOUNDATIONS OF A FLUID PRACTICE
This module, designed for yoga teachers or aspiring yoga teachers and advanced practitioners, will act as the foundations and creation of your vinyasa practice & teaching methodology. Integrating postures you may already know well into a sequence to a fluidity of practice. The aim is to respect the subtle alignment & energy of solar and lunar & create a practice that helps you find you inner harmony & is atuned to your students needs as well.
What to expect…
• Basic principles of Vinyasa yoga
• How to construct a fluid practice
• Kramas & Waves
• Sequencing & preparing the principle pose
• Solar v Lunar Practice
• Getting into the flow – some essential and basic theory
Modern Hatha Yoga should bring balance between the Sun (Pingala Nadi, Prana Shakti) and the Moon (Ida Nadi, Manas Shakti) Channels. Honour both the Sun and the Moon currents. Those who seek and pursue both find the middle path: the gracious Sushumna Nadi! These two pillars of the yoga tradition form a crucial part of my own practice and of this training path as we explore the balance and harmony between the solar and lunar paths, between the yin and yang, the female and the male, the every evolving circle of energy
Price 150eur per person per workshop

YOGA FOR TRAUMA RECOVERY
Yoga-based solutions for post-trauma suffering
Horrific experiences can leave deep scars on the mind, pain in the body and emptiness in the heart.
Traumatic events change the brain, impacting the body, mind and spirit. Yoga is a holistic system that heals on all these levels, restoring physical and mental health by rebalancing the nervous system and giving tools to help you sleep, shift thinking patterns, calm your emotions and bring stability. Using a system of yoga psychology integrating practices for the body, breath and mind, symptom relief quickly brings hope, energy and positivity.
At the yoga for trauma recovery workshop you will:
· Experience the healing power of yoga practices that relieve post-trauma suffering;
· Learn the principles of using yoga to heal the nervous system and transform the body-mind;
· Learn tools to support recovery and cope with everyday life;
· Use simple yoga postures, breathing and relaxation to release tension and create calm;
· Learn new mental attitudes for letting go of past pain and feeling joy in the present;
· Be inspired by Helen’s award-winning short film, Heroes of Peace.
