BRUSSELS - Spring 2024
9 - 12 May, 2024
This course is designed for teachers who want to incorporate using the Elements (Earth, Air, Water, Fire & Ether) in their teaching and their everyday life. Using the Elements as an inspiration, students will be taught to construct creative and intelligent yoga sequences that are infused with the characteristics of each element. In addition to using the elements to create sequences, they will be taught elemental theory, how to teach from the functional anatomy approach, and how to create practices and experiences for their students with intention and purpose.
What to expect ?
Each Element has its own unique magic and power; this course provides students with the tools to understand how to work with the energy of the element, activating or harmonizing through the practice. Teaching methods will include; intelligent sequencing through the Vinyasa Krama Approach and Functional Anatomy. The final piece of this course will focus on personal ceremonial practices. As teachers and students, it is important that we constantly nurture and tend to the sacred garden of our practice; examining and questioning our intention, our mission and our devotion. We will work with different meditation tools, breath exercises, sound and voice, to nourish and awake our own personal and meaningful ritual.
