Friday 4/10: Explore your Core: Advanced bandha practice & teaching core cultivation
The core in yoga is a fundamental system that offers a solid foundation for flow. Understanding and embodiment of this system will offer you tools to integrate core cultivation into your sequences in a way that serves the flow of Prana and supports the opening and strengthening of the body during practice. During this intensive you will study the different aspects of ‘core’ in yoga: core anatomy, breathing techniques and different pathways of core cultivation. You will leave inspired and with lots of tools to help students to find the right bandha support without losing the flow of your practice.

Friday 1/11: Embodying Philosophy: Creating philosophy-inspired vinyasa sequences

Philosophy as inspiration! A truly heart opening and fulfilling intensive Daphne Koken. During this intensive you will learn how to bring yoga philosophy to life and transform these teachings into embodied experiences for your students. Honour the sacred space of practice through working with mudras, mantras and funky sacred playlists. Use the transformative stories of Hindu mythology to create a deeper understanding of what yoga is about. Allow yourself to dive deeper and inspire others on the path of meaningful yoga.

Friday 29/11: Mandala Sequencing: Creating circular pathways of flow

Learn how to create sequencing pathways that are in tune with the intention of your class! Make use of your yoga mat in a fun and creative way, leaving your students with a magical, blissful feeling. During this 10 hr module Daphne will offer you a structure for creating mandala sequences that allows you to add creativity to your classes, while keeping your students in the flow. We will explore different transitions and the use of momentum in flow, which will serve the continuity of your sequence.

We will start the day with a 2,5 hour practice, allowing you to embody circular pathways on your mat. After the practice we will analyse the sequence, exploring the kramas (steps) and the structure of the mandala sequence so you can start practicing creating circular pathways yourself.

In the afternoon there will be a teaching lab for your own integration. You will receive an assignment that has to be completed before receiving the 10hr certificate for this teacher training.
