50-hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Sarah Owen 2019

50 Hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Sarah Owen - January 2019

Immerse yourself deeply in the practice of Yin Yoga during this 50 hour yin yoga and mindfulness teacher training (non-residential) with Sarah Owen. Yin Yoga uses restorative, floor-based poses to nourish and stimulate the deeper energetic channels in the body, providing support for the immune system. Yin Yoga also provides the perfect container to develop deeper levels of self-inquiry and to cultivate the capacity for meditative self-awareness.

During this 50-hour training designed for Yoga Teachers, Sarah Owen will give you the tools to take your practice to a deeper level. You will come away with a clear understanding of safety and anatomical issues pertaining to the Yin Yoga practice, as well as having the ability to creatively sequence yin yoga classes for all levels of students. This training is also designed to deepen your own personal practice of yoga and meditation by incorporating elements of meditation and self-inquiry into your daily yoga practice. The most effective yoga teaching comes from your own personal immersion and deepened personal experience of these ancient methods and teachings.

Deepen your knowledge of the more inward-drawn yoga practices (including pranayama and meditation) and immerse yourself in a personal discovery of the more quiet inner realms. Mindfulness meditation will be explored as an ‘inner method’ during the Yin Yoga poses as well as a seated meditation practice (including the 4 Foundations of Mindfulness).

When: Sunday 6 January to Friday 11 January 2019 from 8:30am-4:30pm.
Where: Canberra Yoga Space, Level 1 / 13 Botany Street, Phillip ACT 2606.
Cost: Early bird of $1300 for full payments before 31 October 2018. Payment of $1450 from 1 November 2018. A payment plan option is available – you can select this option during online sign-up.

50 Hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training with Sarah Owen - January 2019

The 50 hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training Course Curriculum will include the following:

  • Anatomy and Physiology specific to Yin Yoga
  • Modifications and Safety in Yin Yoga, including the use of props
  • Anatomy of the Subtle Body (meridians and chakras)
  • Mindfulness in Yin Yoga (including two specific methods of meditation – Shamatha and Vipassana)
  • Applications of mindfulness in daily life
  • Sequencing in Yin Yoga (including seasonal sequences)
  • Organs and Meridian Health (using yin yoga to affect specific organs)
  • Yin and Yang Theory (basic Taoist theory and the principles of yin and yang – how they are applied to yoga)
  • Yin Yoga and Meditation as referenced in the ancient scriptures (Hatha Yoga Pradipika/Yoga Sutras, Satipattana Sutta, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita)
  • Pranayama (breathing techniques) for health, relaxation and awaking the energy body
  • Meditation and journaling to deepen the yoga experience

* Whilst this training is designed specifically for qualified Yoga Teachers wishing to teach Yin Yoga classes, this training is also open to dedicated practitioners of yoga, with the intention to use the knowledge to deepen one’s own understanding and practice. To be a certified teacher of Yin Yoga, you must have successfully completed a 200-hour Yoga Teaching Certification previously.

Testimonials

“The training was everything I was looking for and Sarah delivered it beautifully, balancing each day with a mixture of practice and theory. Sarah’s training gave me a greater understanding of anatomy and our skeletal limitations, the ability to sequence based around meridians and individual needs, and new meditation methods to use during my own practice. Thank you Sarah for your experience and wisdom.” NM

“Sarah is a wonderful teacher, who offers insights and practical knowledge. She is very caring and inclusive in her teachings and encourages you to ask questions, share experiences and bring your whole self to the lessons. I loved every moment of our classes and have integrated my learnings from Sarah and this teacher training into my way of life. Thank you Sarah.” SM

“The Yin Yoga Teacher training with Sarah Owen has transformed the way I teach both Yin and my regular Hatha classes. I feel as though my practice and the way I teach now contains a richer mix of the eight limbs of Yoga. What I enjoyed most from the training was the teachings of the ‘inner methods’ of Yoga. Sarah provided us with a diverse variety of pranayama, concentration, and meditation techniques that can be used once you have set students up in the pose. These practices help to take the students beyond the physical body, so that they can experience the greater benefits – the system of self-transformation – that is Yoga.” AK

Christmas 2017 – $75 Unlimited Yoga Deal

As a special gift to you, we’re offering a red hot Christmas deal of $75 UNLIMITED Yoga – enjoy 40+ classes over 4 weeks. The offer is for the modified timetable period – Monday 18 December 2017 to Sunday 14 January 2018.

Our Christmas special unlimited yoga period is designed to offer you continuity of practice which is key to personal transformation. The classes running during this period are well-rounded and are designed to meet your need for rejuvenation and recalibration before the new year.

** Classes are appropriate for all levels of practise, and your teachers will be offering variations for each pose to make practise as accessible as possible.

 

***Buy your unlimited Xmas pass here.***

 

MODIFIED TIMETABLE (PDF)

For ease of reference, here’s a PDF of the holiday schedule. Feel free to print off and use on the go. Kindly note, we’re closed 24-26 Dec and 1 Jan. In addition, classes may be subject to change, so please always double check our live online timetable.

 

Take Advantage of TWO Yoga Intensive Programs (INCLUDED)

INCLUDED in your$75 Unlimited Pass, are two Yoga Intensive Programs. Yoga intensives are a progressive series of consecutive classes designed to optimise mind-body awareness and wellbeing. If you have purchased our special $75 Unlimited Pass, or if you’re on direct debit, you have full access to the following two intensive programmes:

 

Niki De Domenico Core Yoga IntensiveNiki De Domenico 4-Day Core Yoga Intensive
27-30 December (12:00-1:00pm)

Core Yoga helps build awareness, strength and stamina in our core—physically, mentally and emotionally. Physically we need a strong yet subtle core for almost every pose, and off the mat, for stability and for longevity. But don’t equate Core Yoga with a flat belly or six-pack abs—while these are worthy fitness goals for some. Core Yoga has so much more to offer then toning up the abs!

Core Yoga improves posture, balance and breathing. It helps to reduce back pain and creates safer-movement patterns. Core Yoga can even help increase athletic performance (if that’s your thing!). A strong core not only strengthens your body but also your mental and emotional wellbeing. You are more resilient to life’s ups and downs when you live from your core, centred and calm.

Core Yoga is a slow, floor-based practise, where we focus on key muscles—abdominals, pelvic muscles, mid-and-lower back muscles and hip muscles—while maintaining breath and present-moment awareness. By practising this way, we can relax the mind, oxygenate and detoxify the body as well as heal and improve our wellbeing. Remember, if you sit, stand, walk or do nearly any kind of activity: you’re using your core!

If your core could use a tune up during the holiday season, then come along to our Core Yoga Intensive.

All levels welcome!

To reap the full benefits you need to sign up for and attend all 4 sessions in this intensive. Your $75 Unlimited pass or your direct debit pass makes you eligible to attend this intensive. Bookings are essential – reserve your spot online now.

 

Jon Smillie - Vinyasa IntensiveJon Smilie 5 Day Vinyasa Intensive
8-12 Jan (7:00-8:00am)

In this 5-day intensive, we’ll be working with Tapas (that burning fire within) in Abhyasa (practice that aims at achieving a tranquil state of mind) – i.e. a regular, focused practice with some intensity – to burn through Samskara (mental impressions) and set a new pattern that resonates with you for the new year.

What’s on offer is a dynamic, Hatha-based flow, progressing through many of the classic poses, and revisiting these poses on successive days to build depth, strength, and purpose. Clearing obstructions in the physical body, and recharging the energetic body, this fast-track period of practice will establish a new foundation to take you forward in the new year.

Who is this intensive appropriate for?
This intensive is ideal for competent beginners and regular practitioners. Poses will be straightforward – Jon will cue a steady flowing sequence, and invite you to take rests as needed to regulate your own intensity. Practise is accessible – you can just drop back in and re-join when you’re ready to go again. All levels of experience can be accommodated in these classes.

To reap the full benefits you need to sign up for and attend all 5 sessions in this intensive. Your $75 Unlimited pass or your direct debit pass makes you eligible to attend this intensive. Bookings are essential – reserve your spot online now.

NEW Prana Kriya Class (Sat) – What is Prana Kriya? Why practise?

New Prana Kriya Yoga Classes with Emily Victoria

Here at CYS, we strive to offer you a choice of representative and authentic pathways through yoga. There is such a tendency in life towards homogeneity, to apply a one-size-fits-all model, but the reality is that whilst we share the same overall template, you as an individual are unique. Yoga is about self-awareness and quieting the mind enough to listen to your truth, and some styles of yoga may help you more than others.

With this in mind, I am pleased to introduce Prana Kriya Yoga to our timetable and welcome our first certified Prana Kriya Yoga teacher, Emily Victoria, to the studio.  In addition to Prana Kriya, Emily isxt a certified Vinyasa Hatha instructor who brings with her a wealth of experience. Read more about Emily, her Prana Kriya Yoga journey and how she can support you here.

Regular Saturday 5:30-6:30PM Prana Kriya Class – Starts Saturday 7 October

After a successful 3-Class Introductory Prana Kriya Practise last August, we are pleased to introduce Prana Kriya as a regular addition to our timetable. Explore this powerful practise – book online through our timetable today.

What is Prana Kriya?

Prana kriya yoga is an energetic yet accessible style of practise that increases vitality and health through a series of exercises (kriyas) which combines physical movement with breath work. You will find this style of practise strengthening and re-energizing the whole body and mind, whilst being calming, meditative and trance-like, reminiscent of ancient movement. It works on a physical and subtle body level, moving the energies in the body and re-vitalising them. It helps rejuvenate the brain and spinal centres, allowing transformation and freedom from limiting beliefs and old behavioural patterns.

“I still remember the first few Prana Kriya classes I attended. It was not like any form of yoga I had ever experienced before. It was energetic, lots of repeated body movements, lots of left and right brain coordination, lots of breath work (inner and outer retention) and some truly mesmerising movements which struck me somewhere deeply, somehow reminding me of ancient times, being connected to something universal. I left these classes feeling completely invigorated. Like I had shaken all the cob-webs from my mind and body loose. I walked away lighter and freer.”  – Emily Victoria

Prana Kriya can be very effective in helping you achieve your goals and aspirations – material, emotional and spiritual.  Learn more about Prana Kriya Yoga – book through our timetable today.

May you continue to be courageous and creative in your journey through yoga. I hope these different pathways allow you glimpses to all the different dimensions to your soul.

You will receive more than enough information and knowledge to teach competently and successfully – as we do at the Knoff Yoga Headquarters in Cairns, Australia.

Students who do not wish to teach may also attend the course to intensively deepen their practice and grow their yoga knowledge.

You will receive a Teacher Training Handbook, Discovery Asana and Pranayama Manual and a Discovery Teaching Certificate (if you pass the course).

Component 2: Foundation Course Component Description

Foundation builds on the skills and knowledge gained in Level 1 with its own balanced and more challenging syllabus.

Yin Yoga Weekend – Early bird discount finishes tomorrow 31 August

Yin Yoga Weekend - Yoga As Self Knowledge with Sarah Owen - 29-30 September 2017

Sarah Owen’s Yin Yoga Weekend is fast approaching and we have a few places left. If you are interested to attend, the early bird price of $120 finishes tomorrow night – Thursday 31 August.

Click here to find out more or enrol.

The weekend comprises of the following three sessions.

Session 1: Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, Friday 29 September 6:30-8:30pm

Improve your flexibility, open your heart centre and feel your positive energy rise. We will practice conscious breathing, Yin Yoga postures, mindfulness meditation (anapanasati), and deep conscious relaxation (guided Yoga Nidra). By the end of the workshop you will feel deeply nourished, restored and inspired.

Yin Yoga is a restorative style of yoga that uses passive, long-held poses to keep the energetic body active and the immune system strong. This results in vibrant health and resilient energy levels, while the Yin Yoga sequence does not deplete the body of energy at all. Perfect for all levels of yoga practitioner – everyone welcome!

Session 2: Yoga as Self Knowledge, Saturday 30 September 10:15am-12:45pm

Come home to yourself during this 2.5 hour Hatha Yoga workshop including Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. Hatha Yoga uses the mindful integration of physical movements with conscious breath and clear intention. Through regular daily practice, the body becomes strong, the heart more balanced, and the mind more focussed with steady, calm intention.

For thousands of years, Hatha Yoga has been used as a method to develop clarity of attention and to transcend self-imposed limitations in the body and mind. It achieves this by cultivating attention and directing energy through the practices of asana (physical poses), pranayama (breath cultivation), and meditation (cultivation of attention). The term “Hatha” refers to the bringing together, or the integration of, different polarities of being (much like the balancing of yin and yang). This will be an informative and transformative workshop suitable for all levels.

Session 3: Yin Yoga for Cultivating Peace of Mind, Saturday 30 September 1:30-4pm

This deeply introspective yin yoga workshop will include practices to compassionately awaken the body, heart and mind. These simple practices can be repeated at home regularly, creating your own personal sadhana or meditation practice, thereby deepening your capacity to draw upon compassionate acceptance for peace of mind.

In various facets of our lives we are striving for more; seeking improvements or progression along the path. Sometimes the most insightful gift we can give ourselves is the opportunity to relax the fixation to improve, analyse, or explain our circumstances; instead drawing deeply inwards into investigate bare, radical acceptance. Compassionate acceptance is the key to cultivating peace of mind.

“Rather than being dis-heartened by the uncertainty of life, what if we accepted it and relaxed into it? What if we said, ‘Yes, this is the way it is; this is what it means to be human’, and decided to sit down and enjoy the ride?” – Pema Chodron

When: Friday 29 September to Saturday 30 September 2017
Where: Canberra Yoga Space, Level 1 / 13 Botany Street, Phillip ACT 2606
Cost: Early bird of $120 until 31 August 2017, $140 from 1 September 2017 for all three sessions

“The training was everything I was looking for and Sarah delivered it beautifully, balancing each day with a mixture of practice and theory. Sarah’s training gave me a greater understanding of anatomy and our skeletal limitations, the ability to sequence based around meridians and individual needs, and new meditation methods to use during my own practice. Thank you Sarah for your experience and wisdom.” NM
