Yoga Intensive with Mark Stephens

bei SatyaLoka Hamburg                                                                     4-7 May 2017

 

This four-day Yoga Intensive with Mark Stephens at Satya Loka offers in-depth workshops for teachers and serious students, plus Master Classes open to beginning to seriously advanced students and teachers.

The in-depth workshops cover topics from Mark’s second and third books:

Yoga Adjustments: Philosophy, Principles, and Techniques

and Yoga Sequencing: Designing Transformative Yoga Classes.

Each class and workshop draws from ancient-to-contemporary yoga philosophies, a variety of yoga styles and techniques, and offers a practical application of functional anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology. 

 

Dieses Intensive wurde für Yogalehrer - vom Auszubildenden bis zum erfahrenen Yogalehrer - gestaltet. Ebenso sind ernsthafte Yogaschüler mit Erfahrung willkommen am gesamten Programm teilzunehmen. Das Intensive eignet sich hervorragend als Weiterbildung und Ergänzung einer 200 Stunden und +300 Stunden Ausbildung.  Der Fokus liegt auf einem interaktiven Unterricht um die eigenen Fähigkeiten zu erweitern und dieses Wissen an seine Schüler weiterzugeben.

 

Mark Stephens is passionately devoted to sharing yoga as a personal practice for making every moment of one’s life better – healthier, clearer, and altogether more joyful. 

Described by Yoga Journal as "the teacher's teacher," he is the author of three international bestsellers now available in eight languages (Teaching Yoga, Yoga Sequencing, and Yoga Adjustments) and is presently writing a new book on Yoga Healing in Practice. With a rich background in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow, Tantra, and Yoga Therapy and deep study of ancient to contemporary yoga philosophy, functional anatomy, biomechanics, and kinesiology, Mark brings an eclectic perspective to the practice that's all about making yoga more accessible, sustainable, and deeply transformational for all. 

Practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching for over 20 years, Mark has trained over 2,000 yoga teachers worldwide. Learn more at http://www.markstephensyoga.com

 Topic:

Making Yoga More Meaningful

• Description:

The heart of this workshop is about becoming more self-aware, self-accepting, and self-actualized, on the mat, off mat, in practicing and in teaching. It's about becoming clearer about one's life path, what the yogis and spiritual philosophers call dharma. We go deeply into self-exploration to discover our deepest longings and inhibitions, fears and joys, obstacles and possibilities. We use breath work, guided meditations, visualization practices, reflective writing, one-on-one sharing and other tools rooted in ancient to modern yoga and other self-transformation traditions to reveal our hidden truths, passions, and potential for living the most extraordinary lives in the here and now. Rather than suggesting that everyone should take a particular path or adopt a given philosophy of life and action in the world, here we allow these insights to emerge from the inner reality of each and every unique being.
