300 HR ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING

Advanced Level Embodied Flow Track

RYT500 Certification

 
 

 

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

 
 
There are many ways to explore the human body, each in their own right inexhaustible. The body may displace a finite volume, yet it defines an infinite potential. Structure, function, sensation and movement each represent unending pathways into embodied human experience. Ultimately, the study of the human body is a study of consciousness itself.
— GIL HEDLEY, ANATOMIST

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

  • Explore moving from different points of initiation that allow a greater ease and effortlessness in asana and movement

  • Examine ways of working with students in their wholeness so as to support their process in an inclusive and empowered way

  • Introduction into the Embodied Flow method of sequencing classes

  • Pranayama and meditation practices

  • Expressing unconscious and conscious aspects of self through movement meditations

  • Foundational components of manual therapy and bodywork

  • Tantric philosophy and its relationship to Embodied Flow

Module #2: Mind

 
 
If your mind carries a heavy burden of past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.

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.

Anchoring these practices in the non-dual tantric technologies of awakening, topics covered will include:

Module #3: Expression

 
 
Through spontaneity we are re-formed into ourselves. It creates an explosion that for the moment frees us from handed-down frames of reference, memory choked with old facts and information and undigested theories and techniques of other people’s findings. Spontaneity is the moment of personal freedom when we are faced with a reality and see it, explore it and act accordingly. In this reality the bits and pieces of ourselves function as an organic whole. It is the time of discovery, of experiencing, of creative expression.
