300 HR ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING
Advanced Level Embodied Flow Track
THIS 300-HOUR ADVANCED LEVEL TRAINING IS DIVIDED INTO THREE MODULES:
At this 300-hour level training, we invite RYT-200 practitioners and students of our 200 Hour Foundations Training into the Embodied Flow Advanced Yoga Training.
This 300 hour advanced program has been designed to guide students through a deep and expansive journey of the Body-Mind as a means to experience the path of yoga. The Embodied Flow advanced level yoga training offers a laboratory of asana, psychology, science, research, experiential anatomy, self-contemplation, advanced teaching skills, embodied movement practices, philosophy, and voice work.
This training recognizes your strengths while inviting you to foster and integrate new skills that give you the technology to create and facilitate embodied journeys of flow. This holistic approach enables you to attend to the complexities of your students' processes and recognize the many pathways of supporting each individual's unique needs. To facilitate embodied journeys of flow is to bestow your students with the felt experience of empowerment, so that they can utilize the tools you've offered to live the manifestation of their truest self.
As a practitioner of this system you must first and foremost be willing to look at and shed light on every part of yourself, to examine old constructs, and be ready to release false truths that no longer serve you or the whole. To practice Embodied Flow is to discover and become who you really are. The advanced modules are an opportunity to explore this path in immersive experience with the support and joy of community.
With 200 additional advanced training hours through Embodied Flow, students will become eligible to become Somatic Movement Therapists.

Module #1: Body
SENSING & BEING FROM AN EMBODIED PERSPECTIVE
This 100-hour “Body” Module focuses on discovering the total sense of embodiment from the Embodied Flow perspective into the living art of yoga. Using the lens of asana and movement meditation, the “Body” module will concentrate on foundational material for integrated movement. This immersion utilizes experiential anatomy, kinesiology and physiology as a platform for effortless and empowered asana.
Human beings can be defined as clusters of consciousness, organized into various densities, frequencies, functions and sensations. Anatomist Gill Hedley coined the term "somanaut" to describe those who explore the interior framework of their being. As you experience this module of the Embodied Flow advanced level yoga training, the following subjects taught provide a framework that will allow you to dive ever deeper into the exploration of Self:
Explore the five foundational Principles of Embodied Flow
Introduction of experiential philosophy (the practice of weaving philosophy into an embodied journey)
Discover various systems of the body from a Body-Mind Centering® perspective
Learn functional biomechanics that allow your students to align from the inside out, and the outside in

Module #2: Mind
LIFTING THE VEILS OF OBSTRUCTION & STEPPING INTO THE SLIPSTREAM OF FLOW
This 100-hour “Mind” Module delves deeply into explorations of consciousness and the rich world of somatic psychology. In endeavoring to bring awareness to all the psychological, physiological, spiritual, energetic and social aspects of our inner and outer organization, we explore the direct experience of our many layers of consciousness.
Continuing with Embodied Flow asana, pranayama, philosophy and meditation, students will gain strong foundations in the practices of body-mind medicine as they are facilitated on this journey towards a felt sense of wholeness.
Anchoring these practices in the non-dual tantric technologies of awakening, topics covered will include:
The identification and discovery of Self
The five stages of flow
Bridging non-dualistic tantric philosophy (Kashmir Shaivism) into the practice of moving meditation
The psychology of stress and pain
How to develop functional empathy and hold space
Refining senses and perception
Understanding and clarifying boundaries
The psychology of change
