Advanced Module: The Elements & The Subtle Body (50 hrs) I Yoga Nature Teacher Retreat (Tuscany)
Let nature be your inspiration to create magical vinyasa yoga classes!
During this Yoga Nature Teacher Training Retreat you will enhance your vinyasa yoga practice by learning to work with the five elements. You will learn how to physically experience the qualities of these elements to activate, liberate and harmonize the subtle body. Dive deeper into the energetic aspects of the five elements and experience how you can benefit from working with their specific healing and empowering properties. Through your own experience of these balancing effects, you will be able to take your own teaching skills to a deeper level. You will learn how to energetically balance your students by tuning in to their needs, the day of the week, the seasons. Every day, Daphne will guide you through intelligent and creative vinyasa sequences that give expression to the energy of the elements in your body. We will go on daily yoga nature hikes, experience yoga nature rituals and let nature become our teacher for a week!
Advanced Module: Flow & Let go: The Art of Gentle Vinyasa (25 hrs) I 22, 23, 24 november 2019 I Haarlem
Within the vinyasa yoga system there is space for the quality of ‘sukha’, meaning ‘ease’. Dive into the lunar arts and learn how to create vinyasa sequences that invite your students to slow down and shift from a state of ‘doing’ to a state of ‘being’. Entering a state of gentleness towards ourselves invites us to let go of too much effort and helps us to tune in with the flow of Prana, life energy itself. Once we enter this state, we start to replenish and nourish our essence, Ojas, which will leave us both energized and relaxed at the same time. During this module you will learn different ways of sequencing gentle vinyasa classes and you will receive tools to create an atmosphere that allows your students to let go and relax. The use of vocabulary, voice, music and mantra will be part of this training.
Advanced Module: Creative & Intelligent Sequencing & Handson assists (50 hrs) I 4 - 8 november 2019 I Amsterdam
“Learn to create sequences that feel effortless yet empowering, nourishing yet energizing, creative yet logical. Invite your students to experience the magic of intelligent sequences that allow the body to open up to the flow of Prana, life energy”.
The logic of Vinyasa Krama: the logic of Nature
During this module you will cultivate a deeper understanding of the meaning of ‘Vinyasa’ as well as the underlying principles that are the foundation of all cycles of life. Applying these principles to creating vinyasa yoga sequences will give you a clear structure to start from. Following the logic of the vinyasa krama system will make your life as a teacher both easier and more fun! You will receive intelligent tools to work with, allowing you to create sequences that invite your students to experience a deeper practice in a safe, transformative and enriching way.
Daphne has been developing this module over the last few years and has created her D.I.Y. (do-it-yourself) Sequencing Kit that will be the starting point of intelligent and safe sequencing. You will learn to use this sequencing kit to create classes based on your own experience and the level of your students.
Once you understand and embody the logic of this system, it will be easy to create your own sequences, based on the different groups of asanas that open the body in specific ways. You will observe the key actions and energetic lines of asanas in their different kramas (stages) and learn to blend them into creative sequences.
