Module # 1: Body
100-hour Advanced Level Training
July 17-28th, 2019
Paros, Greece at Okreblue Retreat Center
Advanced Level Embodied Flow™ Track. Prerequisite: A previous 200-hour RYT Teacher Training. Embodied Flow™ Foundations is highly recommended.
Take your practice or teaching to the next level. This “Body” Module is part of our 300-hour advanced level program designed to guide students through a deep and expansive journey of the body-mind as a means to experience the path of yoga. The Embodied Flow advanced level yoga teacher training offers a laboratory of asana, psychology, science, research, experiential anatomy, self-contemplation, advanced teaching skills, embodied movement practices, philosophy, and voice work.
The Body Module explores yoga asana through the direct experience of our own body systems, tissues, and cells. Students will deepen their knowledge of the body and consciousness, emerging as a more precise and confident practitioner or teacher. Students will receive 100 hours credit towards their 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training Certification.
This 100-hour “Body” Module focuses on discovering the total sense of embodiment from the Embodied Flow perspective into the living art of yoga. Using the lens of asana and movement meditation, the Body Module concentrates on foundational material for integrated movement. This immersion utilizes experiential anatomy, kinesiology, and physiology as a platform for effortless and empowered asana.
Human beings can be defined as clusters of consciousness, organized into various densities, frequencies, functions, and sensations. Anatomist Gill Hedley coined the term somanaut to describe those who explore the interior framework of their being. As you experience this module of the Embodied Flow advanced level yoga training, the following subjects taught provide a framework that will allow you to dive ever deeper into the exploration of Self:
-Explore the five foundational Principles of Embodied Flow
-Introduction of experiential philosophy (the practice of weaving philosophy into an embodied journey)
-Discover various systems of the body from a Body-Mind Centering™ perspective
-Learn functional biomechanics that allow your students to align from the inside out and the outside in
-Explore moving from different points of initiation that allow a greater ease and effortlessness in asana and movement
-Examine ways of working with students in their wholeness so as to support their process in an inclusive and empowered way
-Introduction to the Embodied Flow method of sequencing classes
-Pranayama and meditation practices
-Expressing unconscious and conscious aspects of self through movement meditations
-Foundational components of manual therapy and bodywork
-Tantric philosophy and its relationship to Embodied Flow
Each of our three Advanced Yoga Modules (300 hours total / RYT 500 Standard) count for 100 credit hours towards the Embodied Flow School of Yoga 300-hour Advanced Training. These modules are also open to advanced yoga practitioners for credit with Continuing Education Units (CEU). These Advanced Yoga Modules can be taken by section or all together. Students who take part in all three training modules will receive the 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training certificate from Embodied Flow which allows for your registration as a certified yoga teacher with the internationally acknowledged Yoga Alliance.
