Multi disciplinary Yoga Teacher Training – 300 Hours

Karuna Approach to Yoga

Over the duration of this course we will look at

Yin Yoga - Incorporating an exploration of shapes, hold times, what to expect, benefits and contraindications and why we all need more yin in our lives

A dive into TCM and the 5 Element Theory, looking at where meridians run, what is yin and yang, and how to create change by stimulating meridians.

Understanding the mind through the different stages of meditation. Guided practice and theory

Understanding the body through functional anatomy and a playful investigation of skeletabilty and bio-individuality 

Ways to make our practices inclusive 

Creative Sequencing and fun ways to move

 

 

Yin Yoga comprises long held passive floor postures that invite stillness into our otherwise naturally fast paced lives. Mentally and emotionally, yin yoga gives us space to relax and time to contemplate. Physically this practice helps us explore and expand our range of motion, tap into our parasympathetic nervous system and find resilience in stillness.

​Though the idea of yin originates in Daoism, the practice of yin yoga is fairly modern and has many interpretations. Some teachers lead yin sessions with the TCM approach, some through meditation and awareness of the subtle body. Another approach to teaching yin is through understanding the body and skeletabilty/bio-individuality and functional anatomy. 

 

At Karuna, we look at Yin postures as the fixed centre and the different approaches to the practice are categorised in Module A and B

Our final module will be looking at the rapidly changing face of yoga and will be split into smaller bite sized trainings

This incorporates 

Anatomical differences from body to body and the 2 sides of the same body and how to alter your teaching

Becoming Trauma aware and inclusive - we will look at how to alter your teaching when necessary, the science behind trauma and share stories from our experiences.

How to enhance your practice and teaching with creative sequencing looking at mobility, strength and flexibility, mandala flows, semi circular flows, moon salutations and ways to move around the mat and from seated to standing

An introduction to restorative yoga and yoga nidra
