Program

2 years or 100 hours minimum practise required.

Overview

Holismos Yoga & Wellness likes to think that the main attraction for wanting to sign up for their course is to deepen your understanding of yoga and deepen your dedication to the embodiment of yogic principles in everyday life. In this 3-week long training, you will have the opportunity to explore and nourish all aspects of your growing yogic knowledge. You will take a deeper dive into the essence and teachings of yoga, covering all aspects that are essential for the growth and development of future generations of yoga teachers.

Holismos Yoga & Wellness believes in a yoga that is rooted in its history and traditional teachings, accessible and relevant in the present and useful to the need of each student’s individual growth and development. The teachings are based on a multidisciplinary method, incorporating the different lineages of the main teachers: Vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga. Asana practice includes the exploration of the Chakras and the Chinese acupuncture meridians with an emphasis on their profound healing properties. The course includes pranayama, Restorative or Therapeutic asana, relaxation (savasana), meditation, nutrition, Yoga Philosophy and Psychology, bodywork and Chakra Balancing. Sequences taught are designed to improve both strength and flexibility as well as bring awareness to the flow of subtle energy through the body.

The course emphasises teaching from beginner to intermediary levels. It, therefore, concentrates on safety, the use of props, correct breathing and alignment, restorative asana, relaxation and meditation as well as more dynamic and strong asanas to improve strength, endurance and willpower. Fundamentally, students are encouraged to feel the energy flow in each posture to get the maximum understanding and benefit from their practice. Students need to respect their own limitations and are not expected to exercise beyond their own physical capacities. However, all students should be in general good health both physically and emotionally, in order to complete this course with the focus and dedication it requires.

These elements will facilitate a tangible and relevant exploration if you wish to deepen your practice, enhance your teaching skills, or become a teacher yourself.

This program will enable future graduates to teach with confidence. The sequences taught are designed to provide an excellent foundation for all the basic poses, to teach avoiding any injury and where necessary adapt poses and sequences for differing physical levels and needs. Emphasis is on getting prana (energy) to flow while doing the poses, to understand their therapeutic benefits and for each person to practice with enjoyment, proper breathing, correct alignment and sincerity; ultimately harmonising mind, body and energy. The spiritual notions of yoga can also be found in other philosophical/spiritual traditions such as Buddhism or Western traditions. This will be looked at more closely in the yoga philosophy classes.

Focus of Hatha Yoga Taught

  • Asana practice is based on the Ashtanga-Vinyasa yoga methods, with a focus on flow, alignment and recuperative poses.
  • Pranayama is based on precise exercises to stimulate and control the flow of prana, vitalise the body-mind and regulate the flow of energy throughout the system. This is generally done through active and conscious control of the breath. Good breathing is fundamental for a healthy organism to flourish and recuperate from any ailment.
  • Yoga Philosophy and Psychology is concerned with the fundamental questions of who we are, where we come from, and where we are going. It is a philosophy that has a universal appeal and one can easily find parallels in other cultures such as ancient Greece and Europe, Egypt and China. Theory classes reflect the yoga teacher's passion for the subjects covered.
  • Relaxation - Physical, emotional, and mental relaxation are essential to recover from stress, fatigue, anxiety, and disease. Through deep relaxation, you can truly let go and begin the journey towards health and wholeness.
  • Meditation is an essential tool for calming the mind and creating stillness and peace within. Meditation facilitates a deeper dialogue with the self as it necessitates concentration and going inwards. Holismos Yoga & Wellness offers both guided and non-guided meditation sessions in its courses.
  • Yogic Nutrition - Good digestion is essential for health and also leads to more balanced emotions, better concentration and better meditation. Yogic nutrition is based on eating healthy, nutritious foods to build a strong body and mind. Holismos Yoga & Wellness provides delicious, wholesome, vegetarian and vegan meals cooked in house by their Chef.
