200 hours Certification Mindfulness Yoga Teacher Training course with Bodhiyoga International

By Sudaka on Sat, 6 Apr, 2019 - 15:47

Bodhiyoga ran by Sadhita and Sudaka organise several of their events through Suryavana Retreat Centre.

Yoga without Awareness cannot be Yoga. 
 
Our teachers gain a clear understanding of how to present a full range of yoga postures and sequencing formats both fast and slow, (vinyasa flow, Yin, a more therapeutic approach) incorporating modern and ancient methods. 
 
We emphasise intelligent, sensitive, anatomy-based alignment principles rather than a dogmatic one-alignment-fits-all-approach. Distinctively, we teach how to apply Mindfulness to...

After Sunday lunch the Spanish group leaves and the retreat moves into a second phase with the smaller group emphasising more silence and contemplation. We offer two groups with meditation and Yoga classes in English and Spanish. This format has proved very satisfactory intercultural event. Places will be...

She’s a yoga teacher as well as a meditation teacher and she draws on both those sets of skills to give this talk. And as you lie there, she’ll help you tune into your own own body with some...
