This is for yoga teachers who would like to move into the principles of somatic and embodied teaching, that cultivates a therapeutic whole-body trauma-informed healing approach, as well as for yoga practitioners who want a total immersion into this deep and expansive transformative yoga. 

This CPD module is broad and covers different aspects of Somatic Yoga and Mindfulness, including:-

1) Led Somatic Yoga practices with anatomical and physiological maps

2) Understanding and cultivating developmental sequencing as a Somatic asana framework

3) Buddhist Mindfulness teachings focus on the inner body and breath

4) Somatic Movement & Awareness in Nature

Practice spaces dedicated to open inquiry, dialogue, and creative process will support understanding of the material within community discovery & experiential pedagogic technique. 

Through the 5 days, you will discover how these practices interweave and how these principles form the foundation of a Somatic and Mindful approach to Yoga that is Still Flowing.
