50 HOUR ADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
PORTUGAL 5TH-12TH SEPTEMBER 2020
ALIGN AND DEFINE
For all yoga teachers qualified 200hr plus wanting to develop their own teaching skill and understanding of the practice.
This training is an opportunity to delve deeper into you as a teacher, into what you really want to offer and how you can start to become the teacher you want to practice with. As with all things yoga its begins with awareness an awareness of understanding how you want to define the practice and align yourself with that.
Let me explain little more... I have spent sometime now researching where teachers could do with a helping hand what common details are missing from the experience they provide for their students. A way to make your teaching real and to connect further to you students, this is about becoming the teacher that is more than just words or alignment but by really seeing each individual and providing a sanctuary for their personal development.
Those who know me know my main ethics as a teacher are cultivating all elements of the practice into an hour class, to guide with intelligence and reason, there's should be a reason for all never just because, this is where we can truly guide our students to feel and find for themselves. I always teach with passion and deep understanding of what I'm trying to cultivate within the classroom experience.
FINDING YOU - THE SELF
DISCOVERING YOUR PHILOSOPHY & WAY'S TO DEFINE IT - THE YOGA
YOUR TRUTH & ALIGNING WITH IT - THE HEART
METHOD'S OF MOVEMENT - THE MOVEMENT
TRUE POWER IN SPACE & DELIVERY - THE EXPERIENCE
WHOLENESS IN SELF, SPACE AND TEACHING -THE WHOLE
These modules will be delivered in a way that serves the students it won't be overly structured so things may develop or alter in the moment. This course will be taught in the present connecting with the need and occurnace of the room, we will spend a lot of time looking at each individual. The course will be kept to fairly low numbers so we can all have a chance to be seen and heard.
Questions about the course are always welcomed - email email@example.com
This course will be led by Emily-Clare Hill, Emily has been sharing yoga for just over 10 years. She has explored many styles of practice and ways of teaching, having taught in most locations you could imagine. She now has a large following of dedicated students, hosting her own yoga studio in Stoke Newington London, a very special vibe filled with community and love. Her skill for the practice is ever growing her mind is always open to new and she never stops and nerviest just accepts she must always understand the depth and the why, her mantra "once your stop learning you stop living" Emily has a skill for seeing the potential in students and helping them embrace this themselves. She seems to see the things that we don't always and helps draw your attention to how you can grow your skill and joy for teaching, believing that will all have our own way and our own gifts to share. Click through to see Emily's journey and teachers, she has studied with some incredible teachers in both yoga and philosophy as well as branching out into various styles of the practice she has also studied Thai yoga massage, Anatomy and Myo-fascia techniques.
Each day we will unite for a long practice of mediation, chanting, pranayama and asana. I make my full teaching focus transparent so not only can you indulge in being the student in practice you see how and what I'm doing to relay a message or focus of practice to the room. Post class we will take pause wiht a mini daily breakfast project to bring home what you are receiving. We come back together for a 3 our session of learning understanding, this part of the day will always have a balance of self developments and knowledge bringing the 2 tother to make them fit for each individual so we can expand what we offer but mostly land and understand what and how we as individual are supposed to teach.

OTHER INCREDIBLE ASPECTS OF THIS SPACE AND TRAINING
There is a huge connection between the way we eat & how we experience our yoga practice & our lives in general. Many if not all of our physical & mental health problems are caused or exasperated by the way we eat. With this in mind we prepare food that is calming to the mind & balancing to the body, free of common allergens such as those found in dairy products.
CARING FOR MOTHER EARTH
We have to start looking at the environmental impact of the ways in which we source food & the actual food choices we make. At yoga revolution we are careful where we order food stuffs making sure it is fair trade & organic if that option is available & avoiding foods that put a big drain on precious water resources & those that are GMO.
During the training we like to encourage a helping hand and get involved in our environment a little learning and little working we will give back to our humble hosts by spending a couple of hours supporting with some Karma yoga.
We don't want to give it all away but ceremony is an important part of the yogis journey connecting with an ability to tune in to all. We will share a few together throughout this week.
