Yoga as Medicine ~ 100-hour YACEP module
About This Event
We will begin this journey amidst the heart-opening views of stunning Batu Karu Coffee Estate, where we will be nourished by farm-to-table meals and fresh spring water as we dive deep into the therapeutic benefits of yoga. On April 29 we will move to Kura Kura, where we will weave together fine-tuned alignment, adjustment and assists with the subtle art of yogic energetics. This 100hr Yoga Alliance-certified course is designed to explore the nature of yoga as a holistic healing tool. With internationally acclaimed facilitators Cher Joy and Jiya Julia Randall, this training will advance your studies and guide your personal practice deep into the very roots of the ancient practice of yoga.
The Yoga as Medicine curriculum focuses on the expansion of awareness throughout the body, mind and spirit. Where attention goes, energy flows. By harnessing our concentration and placing it on the micro-adjustment of our body into its own sacred geometry, we unlock the natural healing power of our being. Teachings will be integrated into personal practice to foster an understanding built on your own discovery.
Experience what it feels like to truly feel the natural symmetry of your own body, learning physical and energetic anatomy from the inside and experiencing the energetic harmony that comes with deep internal balance. Using Intuitive Flow Consciousness as a guide, we will journey through the holistic alignment of the self, from the physical benefits of balancing the system through to what it means to replenish through alignment with your passionate purpose in this life.
Through this innate understanding, you will grow to better understand how to help another, whether it be through building a tailored practice or assisting with an injury. Using a variety of traditional and modern practices, you will learn how to improve digestion, cleanse the system, rebalance asymmetry, deepen meditation, work with depression & anxiety and know how to adapt postures for practitioners of all abilities. Complementing the teachings are the shamanic tools of ceremony, sound and visualization, along with the power of Bhakti yoga to guide a deep inner exploration.
Experience the harmony that comes with the activation of your energetic awareness, through clearing blockage and grounding yourself in a well-balanced body. Join us on the sacred lake of Guatemala and unlock the healing potential of your own body and mind. Free up life force within yourself and step back into your natural state of flow.
