The strong points of this training

  • Indian teachers with a big heart connected to their tradition
  • Individual monitoring of daily progress with kinesiology tools or color maps.
  • A benevolent and peaceful environment, in an intense natural environment
  • Asana: Asana (pose) is a Sanskrit word for comfortable sitting. You practice them to manage to sit in meditation without discomfort.
  • Pranayama: Pranayama is much more than a breathing exercise. " Prana " means breath and " Ayama " means control and expansion; by combining the two, pranayama means: to concentrate its energy in order to better direct and increase it.
  • Mantra Chanting: The vibration of the primordial sounds of mantras helps to unite body and mind.
  • Rosters: The role of a yoga teacher is to position the student in perfect alignment, that is to say, effortless maintenance of the body while respecting the structure of each. We, therefore, focus on the different adjustments that will allow progressing towards this alignment
  • Meditation: Observing your breathing helps to calm your thoughts, and therefore to calm your “ monkey mind ”. Co.inspire teaches this technique millennium, common to yoga and Buddhism. In addition to this meditation which comes from the Himalayas, you will also approach the techniques of sound meditation with the Tibetan bowls, the process of yoga Nidra, and also meditative techniques of healing.
  • Teaching methodology: The methodology, in a benevolent environment for the students, gives tools to build lessons on different themes, creates a benevolent atmosphere in the class, introduces different yoga practices, develops a relationship of trust between student and teacher, and increases Self-awareness.
  • Anatomy and physiology of yoga: Link the mechanisms of the body and the postures studied. It is also important to link anatomy and philosophy: "all that is above is like that which is below"
  • Yoga Philosophy: Beyond the systemic study of the subtle bodies, you will study the life principles of yoga as described in the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
  • Kinesiology or the art of healing stress: The body speaks to you if you know how to interpret its messages. He speaks to you both in terms of chronic pain and somatization. And if it is expressed in pain through “bad words”, it can also help you understand ourselves in a much softer way through muscle biofeedback. From your childhood, you lived painful emotional experiences which are forgotten but nevertheless active and we, therefore, implemented, in a subconscious way, conditioning and avoidance. Your history is memorized at the cellular level and it is enough to question the body to have access to it.
  • Emotional body language means the integration of body, mind, and spirit. The purpose of this art of healing is to identify and correct energy blockages as they appear in the present, both physically and psychically, in order to free the mind from conditioned belief systems that limit your perception in all areas of life. Gordon Stokes, creator of a kinesiology current said: "To summarize the nature of what we do: we defuse the emotions of the past that block perceptions of the present: if we do not defuse the causes of the problem in the past, no action taken in the present survive the next similar stress ”. Coinspire invites you to discover this additional tool to become ever more aware of his conditions and detach yourself from them. 20 hours of optional courses spread over the duration of the long course (28 days).

The wise :

Swami Vivekananda

First Indian swami to travel to the United States in 1893.

“We are what our thoughts made of us; so take care of your thoughts. Words are secondary. Thoughts live and travel far. "," Every soul is potentially divine. The goal is to show this divinity by controlling its exterior and interior nature. Do this through work or prayer or psychic control, or philosophy - through one or more books or in temples or in any other form, these are just minor details. "

Swami Satyananda Saraswati

Founder of the Bihar school of yoga and disciple of Sivananda :

“Yoga is not an ancient myth that has been forgotten. It is the most important legacy of the present. It is an essential need of today and of the culture of tomorrow. "

"Whatever binds or limits you, free yourself now. There is nothing in the outside world, no person, no condition, no circumstance that can take your freedom from your mind. Instead of wishing to be free, to live your life differently, accept now, that in truth you are free, free to change your way of thinking, free to change your way of seeing life, free to be whatever you want to be. Make this day a day of freedom, spiritual freedom. Declare yourself free from anxiety and fear, and free from any limiting beliefs".
