100-hour Advanced Level Training
November 14-25, 2017
Ubud, Bali at Ananda Cottages
This module explores yoga asana through the direct experience of our own body systems, tissues and cells. Students will deepen their knowledge of the body and consciousness, emerging as a more precise and confident practitioner or teacher. Students will receive 100 hours credit towards their 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training Certification.
Advanced Level Embodied Flow™ Track. Prerequisite: A previous 200-hour RYT Teacher Training. Embodied Flow™ Foundations is highly recommended.
This 100-hour “Body” Module focuses on discovering the total sense of embodiment from the Embodied Flow perspective into the living art of yoga. Using the lens of asana and movement meditation, the “Body” module will concentrate on foundational material for integrated movement. This immersion utilizes experiential anatomy, kinesiology and physiology as a platform for effortless and empowered asana.
Human beings can be defined as clusters of consciousness, organized into various densities, frequencies, functions and sensations. Anatomist Gill Hedley coined the term somanaut to describe those who explore the interior framework of their being. As you experience this module of the Embodied Flow advanced level yoga training, the following subjects taught provide a framework that will allow you to dive ever deeper into the exploration of Self:
-Explore the five foundational Principles of Embodied Flow
-Introduction of experiential philosophy (the practice of weaving philosophy into an embodied journey)
-Discover various systems of the body from a Body Mind Centering™ perspective
-Learn functional biomechanics that allow your students to align from the inside out and the outside in
-Explore moving from different points of initiation that allow a greater ease and effortlessness in asana and movement
-Examine ways of working with students in their wholeness so as to support their process in an inclusive and empowered way
-Introduction into the Embodied Flow method of sequencing classes
-Pranayama and meditation practices
-Expressing unconscious and conscious aspects of self through movement meditations
-Foundational components of manual therapy and bodywork
