our Somatic Yoga Movement circle.

The concept of Somatic Movement in this course is based on:

The studies and practice of Somatic body movement, which means connecting physical

and mental levels during the practice. Building proprioceptive and kinesthetic

awareness. It is a completely new approach to apply on the mat. It is a means to re-

pattern the neurological connections that govern movement. It is based on 4 principles:

breath, core support, dynamic alignment and spatial intent. Its goal is to reawaken a

student’s awareness of muscles and joints that are not used, used inadequately or

misused, so that she or he can extend movement possibilities in both energy and

expressiveness. Course is influenced by methods of Bartenieff Fundamentals, Bonnie

Bainbridge Cohen, Somatic Experiencing, Taoist energy healing.

Techniques, training and practice

Asana lab focuses on the understanding of the nature of Asanas (yoga postures), their

physiology and application. You will practice, discuss and analyze poses and transitions.

Breath lab – You will master the art of breath in theory and practice. Experience how breathing

correctly benefits and deepens your life and practice. When you use this powerful connection

yourself, you will be able to pass it along to your clients.

techniques that resonate most with you. You will learn to sequence and guide meditations

yourself and how to use your voice as an effective and influential tool.

Empowering, creative and Restorative classes. You will take a look into each style and

understand the differences between them and why these differences exist. This will allow you

to find the style that matches your mind and body As additional bonus you will be practicing

Zen Flow Yoga, Taoist healing techniques, Budokon Yoga, Partner Yoga.

Anatomy and physiology

This part of the course is for you to understand the incredible intelligence embedded within

your body’s ecosystem, that continuously develops on a cellular and universal level – from

embryo to the present moment. We emphasize on understanding how the body works as a

whole wise organism, rather than memorizing Latin names of muscles and bones.

Why does your body feel and move this or that way… The main anatomical source of

information will be your own body and movement, and engaging in hands-on exercises to

transfer this knowledge to your clients. The goal is to leave you feeling embodied!

Art of teaching

Discover the 5 languages of teaching. When you master these skills you can speak these

‘languages’ not only in Yoga class, but in your daily life. How to create effective sequences,

develop a class that allows your clients to move deeper into their understanding of themselves,

and teach in a way that let’s your personality shine forth? These are the questions this course

aims to help you to explore, so that the way you live is an example that teaches others.

5 Languages of Teaching

 Language of presence

 Language of touch

 Language of speech

 Language of observation

 Language of kindness

The transforming point of any practice is when you are to able see yourself in that action. For

this to happen, teaching practicum sessions will be filmed. Videos will be shared only within the

group and class discussion. These videos are your key learning material. When one is unable to

see him/herself movine and holding space for others, he/she ends up creating an illusionary perception of self. You can correct and develop yourself while being supported by every

member of the group. This allows you to learn how to receive and give feedback with

discernment rather than judgement.

Course highlights

Shamanic breathwork

A practice of deep activation of the unconscious level through dynamic breath that releases

energetic blockages and traumas. These practical elements will help balance the mind, body

and emotions because if unresolved issues linger in your everyday life, you cannot unleash

your pure potential to serve others.

Mauna – silence

Tremendous gift of silence (in Sanskrit “Mauna”) will open up a new dimensions of your

personality. Consider it a detox remedy for your mind and body.

Sacred ceremonies

Ceremonies have been held throughout time to deepen people’s connection with Nature,

themselves, and their human tribe. Traditional Balinese cleansing ceremonies, Moon

meditation, sacred Cacao ceremonies will be conducted to profoundly experience this


Other elements…
