Our Approach -
The goal of the 200hr Therapeutic Mindful Hatha Yoga Teacher training programme is to give you an in-depth understanding of Hatha Yoga and Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Therapeutic Yoga to empower individuals (including yourself) towards health and well-being. The course can be taken as a 22 night Intensive or as Modules (Module One is 2 weeks, Module Two is 1 week) based at the stunning 16th century Finca Vinyent on the Costa Blanca.
Group sizes are small (maximum 10-12 students) ensuring lots of personal attention, coaching and feedback to help you gain confidence through your development and learning. This means that places fill up fast so you need to book your space as soon as possible. A 600 euro deposit secures your space with the balance payable just one month before.
The skills introduced are based on the traditional elements of Hatha Yoga and Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) including the study of the 5 Koshas and Pantajalis 8 limbs of yoga (yamas, niyamas, asanas, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dhyana, samadhi) the MBSR body scan, 3 step breathing space and Mindfulness Meditation to help our understanding of which Yoga and Mindfulness practices are most appropriate for bringing balance to the breath, body and mind.
These skills are then complemented with a broad understanding of the health and healing process both from a Yoga and Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) perspective and also within the modern mind-body health movement. This enables you to develop and teach both Hatha Yoga classes for the general public, and special focus Yoga and Mindfulness based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Health and Wellness classes, workshops and private sessions.
