Holistic Yoga Approach
Yin Yoga, Anatomy & Eastern Philosophies with José de Groot
The foundation of this training is the holistic approach in which Asana, Anatomy, Yoga Philosophy and Eastern Health theories (5 elements, chi and meridians) of the human body are combined. This will empower you to teach beneficial, safe and personalized Yin yoga classes.
You will learn about: bones, movements, joints, muscles, fascia, organ functions, meridian pathways, chi, Taoism, Yoga Sutras, Meridian Theory and 5 Elements Theory in a practical and playful way, using the power of repetition and the sensitivity of all of our senses. This will help you to understand your own constitution and how to restore physical, emotional and mental imbalance with yoga poses, meditation, pranayama and lifestyle.
Explore 35 Yin poses of the upper and lower body and learn to analyze the individual possibilities, impossibilities and needs of your students, in order to offer personalized adjustments and suggestions, and teach functionally (focusing on feeling and experiencing the pose), rather than aesthetically (focusing on how the pose ‘should be’ performed).
The Work with Jasmijn Koelink
A first for YogaTreat trainings, Jasmijn will be introducing The Work to focus on personal inner work and freedom. With a deep connection with yourself, you can teach in an authentic & empowering way. This requires work and a willingness to move inwards: enhancing knowledge about yourself: knowing who you are, what you believe and what you want or need. The Work supports and guides you in this process. Question your thinking patterns and defense mechanisms step by step, in a structured way, to find your own truth and notice how your ego-mind is keeping you away from your authentic self. From this connection, you will think and act from a place of clarity, inner peace, and deep trust.
“Your most intimate relationship is the relationship with your thoughts” ~ Byron Katie, founder of The Work
Over 5 days you will learn the basics of The Work and you will deepen the process of self-realization. Learn how to live and apply insights gained into your daily life and teachings. Different exercises will be given to support you with possibilities to practice The Work in between the training days. We invite you to experience for yourself this simple, immediately applicable, and deeply personal work. Access your own inner wisdom, strengthen your personal leadership skills, feel more balanced and present in the moment and find a way to deal with (internal) conflicts. Discover that deep trust, inner peace, and intuition are always available to you and not dependent on other people’s wisdom
Reiki with Jordi Ibern
This RETREAT Training is enriched with a two day Reiki module offered by Jordi Ibern, who will initiate you into Reiki and teach you how to apply Reiki to yourself and others. Reiki is an integrally spiritual practice that is rooted in Buddhism, Shintoism and Taoism, and is largely based on the transmission of Chi (vital energy) conducted through the hands and in meditation. A Regular Reiki practice helps to bring personal realisation and spiritual satisfaction, which gives a special touch to your own practice.
You’ll also discover the special touch it can give to your future students using the unique transformative combination of a Yin Yoga & Reiki practice. These two meditative and spiritual practices combined enhances the deep healing effects of the asanas, promotes well-being and encourages inner growth. Jordi and José have combined Reiki & Yin Yoga since 2007, and together they have offered hundreds of classes, workshops and retreats. Yin Yoga is the perfect Yoga practice to be combined with the gentle touch of Reiki.
Yoga goes beyond the physical practice alone, it is a connection with your heart, mind and soul.
