An offering to you

Yoga is a gift to yourself. It assists in awaking consciousness and promotes a balanced mind, body, and spirit. Through incorporating the practices of pranayama, meditation, mantras, asana, and integrating the yoga philosophy into your life as it is an offering to yourself and spirit which is nourishment for your soul.

The yogic path is a self-healing and evolving journey of transformation which starts from the inside out helping you to feel and look better. As you go deeper into the yogic teachings and practice, the gifts increase prana (life force energy) and promote more clarity, trust, and confidence. Assisting you to embrace an intimate connection to the infinite comic body, transcending feelings of separateness into oneness.

Beyond yoga

In addition to studying yoga asanas, there will also be an emphasis upon pranayama (yogic breathing) techniques that help to direct the breath control and encourage a peaceful mind and increased meditative state. There will also be more time with Nada yoga (the yoga of sound), which is interwoven with the helps to deepen the breath awareness.

The asana

A combination of Hatha, Yin, Kundalini, and Vinyasa. Specialty classes include, Acro, Prenatal, and Kids yoga. The methodology includes a detail break down of each pose covering the five main categories of standing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions; and how to safely go into and out of each pose, adjustments, modifications, foundation, alignment, symmetry, benefits, and contraindications.

Finding your own path

Various types of asana will be offered so you can personally reflect what is the style that best fits your own persona. Each time you come to the mat, youre not the same person as you were the day before, each moment you are changing, new cells are being created, and dying, sometimes you might have over worked too much the day before which reflects in your body and how you respond to your body in each moment with authenticity and integrity. Deepening your ability to listen your body in your own self-practice. After listening to your inner guru (teacher), then it becomes the place where you transmit this to others when teaching a class.

Nada yoga

The practice of Nada yoga assists you to become more aware through the aspect of listening, initially externally and eventually internally. When you cultivate a deeper awareness to conscious listening, your inner chatter slowly starts to dissolve, which promotes inner peace. A peaceful mind is a place where joy and contentment naturally arise. Sound is intimately connected with your breath as both aspects are used to bring any one into the present moment.

    Review by Christiane Koch from Germany

    Learned more than I expected

    CONS Cons: There is nothing to say about the training itself. Just the housekeeping cleaned up the room in different times a day and often during breaks of the training when I liked to study.

    PROS Pros: I booked this training because of it's description. It seemed to me getting more out of it as of other teacher trainings. And it was a great decision! I learned so much more than just asanas. I learned for life! Sequoia and her team are great teachers and also great supporter all the time. The food was good and the staff of the hotel did everything to make our stay perfect. The place near Ubud is a perfect place to do a Yoga Teacher Training! All in all I would do it again. I highly recommend to learn with Sequoia and her team!

    Review by Birgitta Nielsen from United States

    The best yoga teacher training around!

    CONS Cons: The food was ok but it was getting very old eating the same thing over and over again.

    PROS Pros: Sequoia is an amazing woman and teacher. Her two assistant teachers were also terrific! I couldn't have had a better education. The live music was a big bonus but everything was very well planned and we learned so much more than I had thought possible! I'm truly grateful and feel very confident as I am going out there being a teacher!

    Organizer response: Because of the lack of understanding regarding the food, and a few other situations. We won't be working with Aurovalley again. Our new venue owner has a huge heart and understanding to the importance of good food, and hospitality. It was nice to have you join us, Birgitta, as it would not have been the same without your presence. :-)

  • Review by Chris and Anne from United States
    10 out of 10

    "After reviewing scores of RYT programs offered in some of the coolest locations on the planet, Anne and I decided on the Feeling Soul Good program in Bali in April. People attend these programs for so many different reasons - some because they know they want to teach yoga, others to deepen their own yoga practice and still others are looking to find a unique life experience or perhaps even looking to find themselves. We had just started our own business integrating performance and wellness for others and wanted to incorporate our passion for yoga into our services. As martial arts instructors and considering Anne’s background in personal training and mine in SCUBA instruction, we were counting on a school that would provide excellent learning that we could bring back to others, personally and professionally. As small business owners, we were counting on value for the cost and time commitment. As yoga practitioners, we were counting on greatly increasing our knowledge and competence in all aspects of yoga. We are so pleased to say that Feeling Soul Good delivered on these expectations - and more. The month-long program with Feeling Soul Good provided an amazingly comprehensive experience for both of us that was well beyond what we had hoped! Sequoia Henning and team covered the necessary fundamentals very well, of course, and managed to do so including a focus on the importance of “sound” in a yoga practice. In this program, we were able to explore not just yoga but ourselves in ways we never imagined. We learned far beyond what we had hoped - and the way they taught has inspired how we aspire to teach going forward. We recommend Feeling Soul Good to any yoga practitioner regardless of their intent to teach or simply deepen their practice. As teacher preparation, we found the Feeling Soul Good RYT program as effective as what we experienced in certification programs of personal training, SCUBA and martial arts teacher training."

    "I am Feeling Soul Good! Looking back at the month I spent here I had no clue what I was in for. I was just hoping to be certified to teach yoga. Sequoia is a Goddess, she and the team was extremely loving, supportive and knowledgeable. I have learnt so much not only about Yoga but also about myself then I have ever learnt in my entire life. I would definitely recommend this course too everyone as a once in a lifetime opportunity for change. I can not wait for the next one."

    "Student of Feeling Soul Good teacher training, Bali, Indonesia 2016. As I approach the one year anniversary of when I completed my yoga teacher training with Feeling Soul Good, I am thinking a lot about all of the ways it has positively impacted my life both daily and also on a very deep level. Feeling Soul Good provided me with a well-rounded understanding of yogic principles, and how we can apply these in our daily lives. Prior to completing this training, I was looking for a “quick fix” to happiness. I thought to myself if I could just do “x, y, and z,” then I can be happy and coast through the rest of my life in blissful unawareness. But that’s not how life works. “Sthira-sukham asanam,” roughly translated as finding the balance of “effortless effort in our postures,” is one of the yoga sutras by Patanjali that our teacher, Stephan, often quoted in training. Life is a balance: a balance of discipline and letting go, a balance of day and night, of darkness and light, of feminine and masculine. Yoga means “union,” and teaches us to bring balance into all areas of our lives, through the practices of the asanas (yoga postures) but also through the other yogic principles. Yoga has transformed my relationship with myself, with my friends and family, and with nature. I have learned to integrate myself more in my physical environment, to connect with nature in order to connect to my true self. My relationship with food has transformed, and I am now able to eat more with mindfulness and appreciation of food, rather than being disconnected from the substance that provides me with life and energy. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is this: yoga has transformed my life for the better in every way. Even if you are not planning on teaching yoga yourself, Feeling Soul Good will provide you with the tools you need to live a happier, more fulfilling life. Sequoia spent most of her adult life studying yoga in India, and truly lives what she teaches. She is passionate and very knowledgeable, and passes her teachings on in ways that are easy to digest. The teachers that Sequoia had co-teaching with us at our training in Bali were equally knowledgeable and passionate, and the three teachers’ styles and backgrounds complemented and balanced each other out very well. I would absolutely train with Feeling Soul Good again, and I would highly recommend this teacher training for anyone who is looking to connect deeper with him - or herself and with the world around us."

    "I first met Sequoia in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, in 2005. She is an encouraging workshop facilitator, a talented masseuse, sound healer, and an inspirational, wise woman. I am thankful for her teachings in my first official lessons on the subtle body of the Chakras. Her presentation of the profound materials and interactive teaching methods allowed me to become more aware of the connections within and around myself. Sequoia’s understanding of vibrational sound and healing touch has allowed me to walk away from her treatments feeling happy to be me. She is a positively unique human being and I am thankful to have been impacted by her."

    "I am forever grateful to have met Sequoia. She has such incredible knowledge, teachings, and energy. Sequoia was one of my teachers on a one month yoga teacher training course in India, and from the very first pranayama class we had with her, I felt I had encountered a very unique and powerful teacher. During my time in India, I was lucky to experience Sequoia’s yoga classes, sound healings, and ceremonies. Her understanding and insight into yoga and spiritual exploration are matched by her passion for sharing them with others. And her sense of humour is infectious! I have not stopped telling people about the “things I learned from Sequoia”, and I look forward to the day I can see this incredible teacher again."

Her sound healing sessions brought me beyond what I knew and was absolutely life changing for myself and many others. Every lesson with Sequoia is an ‘awareness adventure’ , beyond the five senses and deep into the oceans of our souls.

I see things so differently now and have a fresh perspective on life and our entire being. I feel empowered, grateful, and as if my awareness of this incredible universe is slowly growing bit by bit every day; allowing more moments of clarity, presence and joy.

Sequoia provided the parameters and gave me the perspective. It’s been almost two years since then and the benefits continue to surface. Life presents precious few opportunities to study with un-corrupted masters. There are countless yoga teacher training out there. Why not make yours meaningful with Sequoia?"
