6-day Ongoing Teacher Training immersion
Panca kosa: integrity of practice
at Samahita Retreat, Koh Samui, Thailand
11 – 18 March 2017
We are pleased to announce details of a 6-day Ongoing Teacher Training immersion at Samahita Retreat on Koh Samui, Thailand. This immersion with Simon Low and Faculty will give you 50 hours of continuing professional development, which can also be collected towards The Yoga Academy’s 500-hour certification.
To be nourishing for the body, asana practice must respect the human frame, in particular the central axis of the spine and the potentially vulnerable links of the appendicular body to the axis: the hip and shoulder joints. The integrity of the musculoskeletal body and myofascial network lays down the foundations for enhanced breath awareness and pranayama, thereby opening the pathways for the rhythmic flow and pulse of prana and the body’s innate subtle energies. Pertinent philosophical teachings, infused with contemporary psychology, will be explored to nourish the mind and illumine the intellect in such a way that we may become more receptive to the ‘inner knowing’ rising from the wisdom within. The teachings of this immersion will fortify your sense of self as both practitioner and teacher of yoga.
All of the sessions over the six days will have inter-linked information and common strategies for the teaching and practice of yoga.
Our schedule for the immersion is as follows:
