100-hour Nexus Institute 300-hour Advanced Certification module
100-hour Self Awakening Yoga 300-hour Advanced Certification module
2021 Dates TBD
Self-Awakening Yoga® has been called a miraculous returning home to the wisdom of the body. In this 100-hour teacher training certification you will learn to teach the fundamentals of Self-Awakening Yoga, from accessible movement, to mindful awareness. You will gain non-authoritarian teaching skills to help others unravel muscular tension, experience new ranges of motion, and recover natural movement.
What will I learn?
Whether new to yoga, a seasoned practitioner, teacher, or healing professional, this training will free you to access your inner source of intuitive guidance, bringing new depth of insight to your personal practice and your work with others.
The Self-Awakening Yoga® methodology is experiential and provides a lifetime of tools for self-awareness and practice. The course includes daily workshops, demonstrations, small group exercises and practice sessions with partners, benefits and contraindications, learning psychology and skills for designing progressive sequences of natural movement.
In the process of Self-Awakening Yoga®, the depth of your own body-based wisdom is allowed new space for expression. Discover your innate ability to slow down, travel to the place where the urge to move originates, and hone your capacity for intuitive knowing through the language of sensation.
Self-Awakening Yoga Therapeutic Essentials® teacher training will help you become your own best teacher and facilitate others to do the same.
