One day teacher training Chair Yoga Skills and Restorative Yoga Skills

SO, this is one of the most popular trainings in the world of Yoga Trainings , CPD, for teachers .To have this skill on hand for any teacher of Yoga really expands your teaching apparatus and scope to a larger audience.This also beautifully brings Yoga to the wider community which it is supposed to be for ALL human's.As a student of yoga or indeed a teacher of yoga in your yoga life you will encounter injury with your own body or illness or with your family ,students ,friends.Yoga is a remedial therapy and a constant  question I get is , should I stop practising Yoga  I have an injury? unwell? fatigued?depressed? My answer is always, no , keep practising. So how do we do that? This training shows you how...even for the frail , weak body, there is something in this you can practise or teach so one can get the energy flowing again to b ring us back to health wellbeing strength.Yoga is hugely an energy system, a technology so sophisticated we are only at the tip of understanding that factor.If we treat the energy body FIRST  the health healing will come.That is not an over promise and an under deliver for those of us already benefitting from the energetic charge from our Yoga practise .To bring it to the weak, unwell, frail, or simply just low energy times of life is truly spreading the benefits to all humans all 7 billion of us on the planet , theres 7 billion ways to practise yoga ! course is JULY 8TH 10-4.30PM   175 EUROS 

what is exactly the experience of yoga teacher training for the interested student

I have noticed over the many years of teacher training the massive interest in the science of yoga growing at an accelerated rate in our western world. I prefer to call it a 'sharing' of knowledge the student has acquired and has tested it in their own laboratory of their body , then downloaded it into the cellular body , integrated from having a regular practise and then it emerge's as one's own true but unique perspective on how they feel about Yoga.So when one does this, they will resonate authentically with others who are drawn to their way of sharing it. This allows Yoga to propagate with integrity through the many channels of diversity that we are , then it evolves and expands.This is the true nature of the route of yoga. So , essentially I would prefer to leave out any emphasis on the word , 'teacher' which I feel has connotation's that put off the truly interested student to know more , to go deeper into the teachings. By calling it a sharing , it is more available, less intimidating to ALL human's of all ages , backgrounds,  abilities, creed's, traditions,income levels.This is how yoga was meant to be , for everyone, the benefits are available to all human's.I have found in the yoga world a form of elitism , which is unyogic, segregated , ' us against them attitude.'This leaves out a whole world of people who have as much right to deepen their knowledge , wisdom and practise as they wish.My intention was to make 'Yoga Teacher Training' available to ALL, once they have an enthusiasm , love, and interest a quality  teacher can teach /guide them all they want to know on the vast deep subject of yoga and its philosophies, science etc lovingly..India , the motherland gave yoga as a gift to the world , that meaning, everyone. So Teacher Training in my mind should be just that a place to go to learn more, and you then go try and test it out and then  share what you know,how it worked for you , allow it to guide you rather than you drive it. This makes for an exciting journey ,non intimidating accessible to all.I feel i teach it in this way, and yet  respecting the beautiful discipline that yoga is but making it as digestible to the student as they open and grow at their own unique rate and style.It is a non dogmatic philosophy , so teaching it in a 'my way or the highway attitude is not true yoga.The student and the teachings can only flourish in an supportive environment of ease , playfulness, free to investigate enquire as the student's own curiosity and intuition guides them.My intention to to share my passion for teaching the interested student and take them  on this magic carpet as deep and as far as they would like to go !I have been teaching the teachers for almost a decade and still have so much to learn myself which is wonderful as there is endless potential for more awesome wisdom with more depth ,more riches unfolding , to me an immensely intoxicating delightful thought which has no age/time barriers yet always supportive through all stages of life.It sure has assisted me through some of lifes curve balls, challenges , like a benevolent friend , as David Swenson described it.So, the more "Teacher Trainer's sharers" the better the world will be .I  think we can all agree we have enough Banker's, politicians, professional's we need more yoga/meditation teacher sharers (think I saw  a Facebook quote out there like that ha ha) so consider your yoga teacher training a place where you go to learn how to live a healthy ,benevolent life full of meaning and purpose , the pre requisite for healing, and shouldn't that be available to ALL ?.Do not be intimidated by that word Teacher if you are considering a training allow your heart to guide you to the right one for you.keep shining and serving the light all  you lovers.

Yoga as Soul Food

I am most interested in teaching yoga as soul food. Today so many of us find ourselves in a state of starvation nourishment that feeds the soul. I spent a lot of time in The motherland of yoga, India at an Ashram training, extensively travelling, absorbing exploring the techniques. Then equally as much time in Los Angeles a mecca of yoga for the West, and I love the experiences and wisdom, I have learned from these two place's. One focused primarily with the spirit, the other obsessed with the body.

I have trained with the masters of yoga and experienced the many ways and styles of the Asana practise which has lead me deeply into the inner world of the science/philosophy of yoga. I have witnessed much magic and transformations within myself and others, yet I feel the depth of the eternal wisdom. I teach daily and my passion is to train students to become yoga masters, not just teachers as there are many yoga teachers now in our western world, but its the masters that make the difference . You could say my life is an extension of this yogic life style, perfectly imperfect in its quest to transform consistantly and constantly. This is why I love to teach the flowing style of yoga it challenges, surprises me and expresses where words fail. I have two yoga spaces my. Ashrams, where like minded souls are magnetized to. A place we share, heal, explore our deepest self together. I've taught around europe and discovered the language of yoga is the same all through the world as to me the heart is the main componant, always at the centre of the practise. Our suffering is mostly caused by diconnection to the heart then prone to the disturbances of the mind. I like to teach and guide my students into a Temple of Movement and feel the sacredness of the Asana practise which is what nourishes the body, mind and soul. I endlessly train myself and keep finding another depth to drop into, then witness the riches inside as a reality not just fancy spiritual fast talk.
