Introductions….and Morocco immersion
Our training begins at the beautiful Be-Yoga studio in Sussex, an introduction to the structure of the course and some creative ways to get to know each other. We dive straight in to the creative flow sequencing we love as well as Mala making with meditation and an introduction to chanting, the weekend includes an introduction to functional anatomy with the brilliant Sylvia Laurenti. Our immersion in Morocco follows 4 weeks later, 8 days together in the sunshine, we experience the transformative power of daily yoga and meditation away from all the usual distractions of life in the modern world, here we reconnect with nature and our true essence. You are invited to detox from your phone and the internet, experience life by the waves and meditate with the setting sun. We stay in Villa mandala looked after by the brilliant team at Surf Maroc.
It’s essential for any training instructing movement to have a firm grounding knowledge in anatomy and physiology, we are also interested in functional anatomy and how the body heals itself, a yoga therapist and a physiotherapist, your anatomy teachers have decades of experience to share about how incredible the human body is. Learn how to adapt your teaching to include students with the most common injuries and conditions you will encounter when you start to teach. Yoga practice includes the subtle body, the movement of energy around the body, we include an introduction to the endocrine system, cardiovascular and nervous systems as well as the enteric nervous system, subtle energy is how we feel, we believe it’s helpful to have an understanding of the many varied and elegant ways the body adapts to growth and change, we look at the effects of stress and trauma in the body and the link with posture and emotion.
Anatomy in motion…
We learn about not just what grows where but how it fits together and most importantly how the body moves
