The 5 Elements Module Training is a Series of Week Long Immersions designed for all levels & varieties of students. They can be part of a growing education for yoga teachers and those wishing to teach or just an amazing week of deep study for students of yoga who do not wish to teach at all!
The intention of these courses is to offer students wishing a deeper knowledge of Yoga as well as current teachers an opportunity to grow in their teaching path in an easier format then a one month intensive course. These Modules will go deeper into the integration of the various yogic aspects of the elements into our practice and life. For those who are already teaching, these modules will develop new consciousness to educate your teaching.
We hope develop a deeper awareness of the forces of nature and their relationships to a variety of yogic practices, body parts, concepts and ideas.
Each Module is a 100 hr. Certified Yoga Alliance Course.
These modules are not a substitute for a Level I Teacher Training whose focus is to create dynamic and confident teachers. We encourage students who wish to become teachers to explore other Level I Teacher Training Programs to learn the basics of Yoga Philosophy, The 8 Limbs of Yoga, Basic Anatomy and Teaching.
The second element module will bring a new understanding of fluidity, graceful movement and personal transformation related to Water… Anatomically in the lower belly and respiratory system… Related to the Goddess and Reproduction… Energetically in Swadhistana Chakra… Yoga sequences of twists and digestive health are the asana focuses.
Twisting Poses / Side Bends / Fluid Vinyasa
Hip and Spine / Respiratory System
Practices / Excercises for Surrendering and Letting Go of Attachments
Stories and Mantras of The Goddesses

We have connections for short-term rental apartments that can hold anywhere from a single person to four people together ranging from €30 – 40 per day for the entire flat (this price can be divided by as many people stay there).
