Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training

 

I am delighted to offer a Pregnancy Yoga TT to already qualified Yoga Teachers.
The course will run for 2 full days, 10 – 5pm each day:
Friday 1st May
Saturday 2nd May

This training will cover all pregnancy Trimesters right up to Birth & cover post Natal Yoga also. We will also look at integrating pregnancy students into general classes.

Course Tutor is Helena Bingham who has been teaching Yoga for over 24 years and specialised in Pregnancy yoga after the Birth of her first child in 2007. Helena also trained as a Doula in 2008 and ran pregnancy classes for 8 years.

Pregnancy Yoga classes are an amazing way to support and help women through this transformational time in their lives. Pregnancy yoga helps remove discomforts from the growing body and also supports the hormonal & emotional changes. For some women its literally the best hour of the week.

Being a Pregnancy Yoga teacher is a special place to sit, where we can offer support and hold space for the changes involved. We will explore all of these changes in the course and guide you how to plan and offer safe and effective classes where women will feel seen and heard.

Pregnancy yoga isn’t just about Asana, it is about well being. Saying that women want to feel that they are still using their bodies right up to birth, and keeping in shape with the Asana. For this reason some of the Asanas are still challenging, but we need to understand modifications and relevant alternatives.

Pregnancy Yoga can change a womans birth and pregnancy experience. From learning to breath and stay present, using your body positively, having somewhere to go to talk and share and meet other mum’s all contribute to this […]

50 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Helena & Dee

Dee and I are delighted to invite you to our second Yin Yoga Teacher Training. With over 30 years of experience between us, and a deep passion for Yin!, we have designed the perfect Yin Yoga Teacher Training for Yoga Teachers.

The course will run over 5 days and will cover:

Traditional Hatha Yoga in the shapes that we make

Traditional Chinese Medicine by bringing the awareness to Meridians or pathways that flow through our body

Taoist 5 Element Theory showing us how we are connected to our environment and nature

Mindfulness from Tibetan Buddism – allowing everything to be just as it is in this present moment.

We will learn how to open and soften the fascia or connective tissue that runs through our bodies, connecting everything to everything else right down to the cellular level. The fascia is like a network holding your internal body together. The Fascia is directly responsible for our flexibility which becomes a little more dense as we age.

Fascia responds to long holds and opens gently as we get out of the way.

Through the shapes of Yin Yoga we will learn how to influence the flow of chi through the body to nourish the 12 main organ systems creating harmony and balance.

Each Yin posture has a therapeutic or healing quality and we will learn how to practice and teach approximately 20 Yin Postures and variations.

As we learn how our body mind and spirit are connected by the Meridian Pathways, we explore mental, physical emotional health and healing.

Open to teachers that have already achieved a foundation Yoga Teacher Training and those who just LOVE yin and want to experience more.

The course will run over 5 days 10am – 6pm
Small group to maximise support

The why, how and when to Self Practise?

Self practise seems to be (from my observation) the place where most teachers (new and old) fall down. Work, time, kids, jobs, sleep, pets, sickness etc all get in the way – but why?

What is it that stops us wanting to practise the very art that we love so much and spend time teaching to others?

We know that we need it – but we still don’t do it?

I wanted to spend time with you to uncover what it is, for you, that gets in the way; then help a) realise it, and b) help it to stop getting in the way.

We will start the session by spending time in a slow and mindful yin practise together, you will then be invited to explore where you are at with our own personal practise.

Together we will look at different practises for different times of the day, how to get a quick fix, and how to feed yourself deeply when you have the time.

You will be asked to commit to agreeing to some home practise during the month following this workshop so we can see some progress and development.

£25.00, bring a pen and paper and an open heart.
3 CPD points awarded

Yin Restorative Yoga

We work mostly on the lower body and chakras in Yin but the chakras and body work only as one unit. We can look into one area more than another, but as the body works as a total and complete unit often releasing one area in the body can, just like magic, release energy in other places. Its like a chain reaction!

Join me to move your energy. 6.30 – 8pm
