Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training
5th October 2019 – 12th September 2020
The Tree Room, Colchester
Becoming a yoga teacher is an incredible journey of discovery. This Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training will enable you to gain the knowledge, insight and skills to grow into a confident, creative, inspiring yoga teacher. You will learn to teach classical asana with precision and creativity, authentically inspired by yogic traditions, in resonance with the heart of yoga.
You will learn precise alignment of classical asana and Sanskrit terms. You will explore the harmony of form and flow, dynamic flow to peak pose and creative sequencing, infused with mudra, music, poetry and prose. You will learn how to weave yoga philosophy, traditional texts and mythology into choreography, infusing contemporary vinyasa with ancient insight. You will deepen and develop your daily sadhana, embodying the heart and wisdom of yoga. This unique yoga alchemy will empower you to develop an authentic voice and style that defines you as a yoga teacher.
Additionally, you will experience an expert guest teacher in Anatomy and Physiology relative to teaching yoga; detailed exploration of esoteric anatomy, yoga philosophy and traditional texts; develop voice techniques and authentic expression; learn Sanskrit chants and kirtan; develop visionary business and marketing skills to build a successful career as a yoga teacher.
Are you ready for the journey?
I have been a yoga teacher for seven years and have a successful full-time career, sharing Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes, workshops, festivals, worldwide retreats and yoga community. My yoga journey expanded spontaneously and rapidly, unfolding with so many enriching experiences, colourful travels, beautiful friendships and soul growth.
I have completed a thousand hours of training with international tutors who have instilled inspiration and authenticity into my yoga practice and teaching. My time in India also allowed authentic insight into the history, tradition and practice of yoga.
As a writer and teacher of literature, I am innately inspired by language and art; therefore creative narrative, mythic story and poetry infuse my choreography. I offer an authentic sadhana space through precise use of Sanskrit language, yoga philosophy and traditional texts. These creative qualities are woven within precise alignment of classical asana. I offer yoga assists and adjustments throughout my classes to align and enhance postures, opening space for partner assists and play within the class.
It is a joy to share my knowledge and experience with you in this inspirational Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training.
This 200 hour Yoga Alliance accredited Teacher Training offers comprehensive, experiential education, empowering you to become a confident, authentic, creative yoga teacher. Heidi Pascual will lead yoga, philosophy and teaching skills sessions. You will also experience expert guest teachers in Anatomy and Physiology, Philosophy, Voice Work and Chanting, Business and Marketing.
The course will be scheduled on weekend monthly modules and a Teacher Training Retreat, allowing you to practice, learn and study alongside your work and family life.
