Advanced Module: Creative Core Integration (25 hrs) I 7, 8, 9 june 2019 I Haarlem

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 create vinyasa sequences that are both steady and fluid. During this module you will study the different aspects of ‘core’ in yoga: core anatomy, breathing techniques and different pathways of core cultivation. This will give you a clear understanding of how to integrate these techniques into your sequences in a way that serves the flow of Prana and supports the opening and strengthening of the body in the pathway of your choice.

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.
