This course is for you if you are a beginner in yoga and want to delve into the fundamental knowledge of yoga with or without intentions to teach, you are a yoga practitioner and want to develop and form your own style, or you are an experienced yoga instructor and want to explore the art of teaching from your authentic heart, broaden your yogic knowledge and experience, and hone your existing skills.

The concept of Somatic Movement in this course is based on:

  • The studies and practice of Bartenieff Fundamentals. It is a means to re-pattern the neurological connections that govern movement. It is based on 4 principles: breath, core support, dynamic alignment and spatial intent. Its goal is to reawaken a student's awareness of muscles and joints that are not used, used inadequately or misused, so that she or he can extend movement possibilities in both energy and expressiveness.
  • Studies of Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen - outstanding teacher, who works with dance, Yoga, music, body work, Pilates and more. She is standing for the body mind connection movement, which starts its development from embryological patterns and continues through all life, in every cell.

Higher missions

  • To bring you to a higher awareness of the human body, especially your own
  • To provide you with various tools of mindful movement to explore your physical and mental capabilities in a safe and engaging manner
  • To build confidence and compassion towards your body from the space of practical knowledge
  • To discover what your unique, authentic yoga is so that you can share your passions with the world
  • To deepen your connection to your true nature, others, and all of existence

Techniques, training and practice

Asana lab focuses on the understanding of the nature of asanas (yoga postures), their physiology and application. You will practice, discuss and analyze poses and transitions.

Breath lab - You will master the art of breath in theory and practice. The goal is to let you sense how breathing correctly benefits and deepens your practice. If you feel this powerful connection yourself, you will be able to pass it along to your students and apply it to everyday life.

Meditation lab - Guided dynamic and mindfulness meditations and Osho dynamic meditations will be the beautiful base of the course. Training is enriched with different daily meditation to help you find the techniques that resonate most with you.

You will learn how to guide various different styles of meditations, how to sequence yoga Nidra and other techniques, and how to use your voice as an effective tool. You will watch educational movies which are based on harboring inner tranquility and developing meditation for non-contact hours.

Yoga styles

Practicum classes will be based on the following styles of yoga: Vinyasa, Yin, Hatha, Kundalini, Empowering, creative and Restorative classes. The goal is to teach you how to teach so you have the tools to teach any style that resonates strongly with you. You will take a look into each style and understand the differences between them and why these differences exist. This will allow you to find the style that matches your mind and body

Anatomy and physiology

This aspect of the course is for you to understand the incredible intelligence embedded within your body’s ecosystem. The stress is on understanding how the body works as a whole rather than memorizing Latin names. Within this course you will focus on understanding human body’s systems as one whole intelligence, that continuously develops on a cellular and universal level - from embryo to the present moment.

Why does your body feel and move this or that way… The main anatomical source of information will be your own body and movement, and engaging in hands-on exercises to transfer this knowledge to your students. As well as learning general human anatomy, you will explore how your body is incredibly unique and how this influences your range of motion and the way you move. The goal is to leave you feeling embodied!

Art of teaching

You will discover the five languages of teaching in this course. When you master these skills you can speak these ‘languages’ not only on the mat, but in your daily life. Yoga is much broader than correct alignment.

How can you create effective sequences, create a class that allows your students to move deeper into their understanding of themselves, and teach in a way that let’s your personality shine forth? These are the questions this course aims to help you discover the answers to, so that the way you live is an example that teaches others.

Learn five Languages of teaching

  • Language of presence
  • Language of touch
  • Language of speech
  • Language of observation
  • Language of kindness

The transforming point of your teaching skills is when you are to able see yourself from a space of understanding. For this to happen, teaching practicum sessions will be filmed. Videos will be shared only within the group and class discussion. These videos are your key learning material.

When one is unable to see oneself move and hold space for others, one ends up creating an illusionary perception of oneself. You can correct and develop yourself while being supported by every member of the group. This allows you to learn how to receive and give feedback with discernment rather than judgement.

Course highlights

Shamanic breathwork

A practice of deep activation of the unconscious level through dynamic breath that releases energetic blockages and traumas. These practical elements will help balance the mind, body and emotions because if unresolved issues linger in your everyday life, you cannot unleash your pure potential to serve others.

Mouna - silence

You will experience the tremendous gift of silence in real practice which will allow you to dwell into the peaceful part of your consciousness.

Sacred ceremonies

Ceremonies have been held throughout time to deepen people's connection with nature, themselves, and their human tribe. Traditional Balinese cleansing ceremonies and sacred cacao ceremonies will be conducted to profoundly experience this connection.

Other elements

These include ecstatic dance, Dao healing practice, Qi Gong, the art of non-violent communication and active listening, music and kirtan, and much more!
