This unique and high-quality small group training is taught by a highly experienced Yoga Therapist C-IAYT 1000 and Ayurvedic Practitioner Antonina Ramsey and guest speakers - an Ayurvedic doctor and experienced yoga teachers. inHarmony Yoga for Health is where ancient wisdom meets modern science. You will learn not only how to design general balanced yoga classes and programs but more importantly - how personalize and choose intelligently specific breathing practices, asanas, meditation and relaxation techniques to your clients based on their physiology, age, health condition, needs, and their unique Ayurvedic genotype. This is not a boot camp type of training with copious amounts of physical postures. Nor there is a blanket application of one-to-all alignment rules. You will learn the basics of personalized alignment based on a deeper understanding of physiology.
inHarmony Home is a beautiful and comfy villa designed with love by Antonina to share its healing beauty with her students and clients. You will love the feeling of being in this place! There is a huge living room where we will do yoga when the weather doesn't let us be outside or on the roof terrace or in a beautiful garden. There are 3 stylish bedrooms to share to use privately. Each bathroom has its bathroom with a shower and access to the garden all around the house. The house is located in a residential area of 13 villas sharing a large park-like territory with a nice size pool and grass area to chill.
inHarmony Home is being redesigned. Photos and videos are coming soon.
Hi dear! For every student there is a teacher and for every teacher there is a student. I really wish you find the training that is best for you. Please read the characteristics of the training carefully to make sure there is a fit between what I offer and what you are looking for.
1. This course is based on the notion that Yoga is first of all a spiritual science and its fundamental purpose is to create harmony in the body, mind, and environment. Yoga is a complete system of physical, mental, social, and spiritual development.
2. My passion is to bring the authentic Satyananda lineage Hatha and Kriya based Yoga and the foundations of Yoga Therapy to my students combined with latest scientific research in physiology and Yoga, and techniques from a number of holistic modalities such as Shamanism, Hypnotherapy and Energy Healing.
3. I use the Socrates Method of teaching in this course to foster critical and creative thinking. I give you the knowledge and guide you to gradually arrive to answer to your questions.
4. This course is designed to train future yoga teachers/educators interested in a therapeutic, knowledge-based creative application of basic Yogic & Ayurvedic tools and techniques in small focus groups or 1:1 settings. It also prepares one to teach general balanced group beginner and intermediate (from the physical challenge perspective) level classes.
5. This course is not designed for those interested in a specific yoga style such as Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Kundalini etc. with style-specific prescribed “do it this way” protocols, memorized choreographic sequences, and generic one-to-all rules and cues. This style of yoga is focused more on teacher guidance and less on teacher instruction, which is one of the main differences between a yoga teacher and a yoga therapist.
6. Course material was carefully chosen, organized in a specific way and improved continuously based on the feedback of 100+ inHarmony Yoga YT grads, a decade of my yoga teaching and personal and professional evolution to a 500hr E-RYT, Ayurvedic Practitioner, and 1000hr C-IAYT yoga therapist.
I hope this course makes you appreciate the magnitude of Yoga, its numerous Tools and their powerful potential for human health. In this Foundations training we only scratch the surface of what Yoga and Ayurveda have to offer.
In-depth human anatomy and physiology are a big subject requiring hundreds of hours to become proficient and are beyond the scope of this course. As a beginner yoga teacher needs a basic level of anatomy and physiology to understand the mechanisms behind the Yogic techniques to practice and explain them in a better and safer way. More detailed studies of Yoga anatomy, physiology, clinical health conditions, Yoga Therapy specific protocols, client care plans, and Asana clinics are part of the advanced 300hr and 800hr trainings.
"Fascia is the missing element in the movement/stability equation," Tom Myers.
I place a lot of emphasis on Fascia in this training because new scientific research data along with breakthrough 3D imaging completely challenged and revolutionized the way we understand human anatomy, movement and Yoga Asana.
Multiple Yogic Techniques will be explained and demonstrated during lectures and discussions. All the techniques will be demonstrated by the teacher and tested by the students (experiential learning) during our 1.5 hr morning and sometimes afternoon or evening sessions. Later students test/put to practice these techniques during your morning Sadhana practice. Techniques will be practiced and experienced in:
1. You will study main Hatha Yoga Poses one by one covering all aspects of Asana practice with safety and health optimization as a goal:
2. How to put postures together. Design of a general balanced yoga practice for a healthy person/group class.
3. Using the Asana knowledge to put together several specialty yoga group practices for Dosha balancing, an obese client, a client with a common health condition such as anxiety or chronic fatigue, and to design beginner and intermediate group yoga classes.
4. How to adapt a general yoga class structure to a client with a specific therapeutic/healing goal where the client is you (your own routine yoga practice Sadhana).
You will learn how to modify yoga for various common human health conditions. This topic is covered more in the 300hr YTT in more detail and to a larger extent.
You will learn, test and practice teaching the following main Pranayama Techniques:
You will learn the main principles of guided relaxation in Savasana - the speed, the tone of voice, the visuals, themes, position of the body, adaptation to various client needs etc.
You learn how to use the Chakra System for the development of Awareness and Emotional Balance along with numerous techniques (please see your Philosophy book’s Chakra chapters, suggestions part) to affect chakras and thus the human energy subtle body and the Koshas.
An extremely useful tool for stress management - to make people aware of the root cause of stress and disease. You will learn how to apply the concept of Kleshas to educate clients about stress, where it leads to, how to get out of the cycle, what Yogic tools to use to manage/ remove it.
You will be introduced to the basics of how to work with clients holistically using the system of Koshas.
You will learn how to use Mantra as a tool of concentration and relaxation, how to chose the right mantra for a specific person/situation, and physiology and the science behind it. You will be shown how to use Tibetan Bowls in a yoga class.
This topic is optional/elective. You will learn the basics (general rules, dos and don'ts) of how to teach yoga to the healthy population.Working with women who have pregnancy-related health complications/illnesses is beyond the scope of this course and is addressed in the advanced 300hr YT.
