Enhance the Arts of Yoga
Teacher Training for Yoga Teachers

19th – 21st November 2021

‘The depth and breadth of knowledge which Heidi shares with all of her heart is absolutely phenomenal and deeply transformative!’

Enhance the Arts of Yoga Teacher Training is designed for Yoga Teachers to gain new knowledge, insight and skills, enabling you to teach with renewed confidence, creativity and authenticity. This training invites you to take the next step on your yoga journey to enhance your sadhana, elevate your knowledge and skills, inspire renewed enthusiasm and passion on this path that is your own heart’s calling.

The mornings of this teacher training course are dedicated to deepening your sadhana. There will be an immersive, experiential exploration of the Art of Pranayama through sequenced pranayama techniques, kriya and esoteric practices. You will enhance your asana practice, exploring authentic, creatively-inspired Vinyasa Flow and Dharma Yoga. Our sadhana moves through beautiful sequencing; creative krama and transitions; binds and back bends; arm balances and inversions. We will share a nourishing, soothing Yin Yoga practice on the afternoon of the final training day to balance the body-being.

In the afternoons, we will explore the Art of Yoga Assists. Yoga assists are one of the most effective ways to enhance your students’ understanding and performance of a pose; creating a clear imprint of what is possible with intelligent alignment of asana. Skilful adjustments and assists will revolutionise your teaching practice and methodology, enabling your students to find their highest potential.

Our training days will close with an insightful and inspirational lecture with Alistair Shearer, exploring mystical Indian esoteric anatomy, yoga theory and practice. These sessions will reveal in-depth insight into prana and the nadis, the pancha koshas, purusa and prakriti, Tantric rituals and the Bhakti Sutras.

Heidi Pascual holds the E-RYT 500 designation from Yoga Alliance therefore, this training can be used to gain 25 Continued Professional Development hours by certified Yoga Alliance teachers.

The Teachers
Heidi Pascual

I have twenty years experience teaching across the globe in different specialisms; a Post Graduate Certificate of Education in English and ten years experience as a Yoga Teacher. I have a successful full-time career, sharing Vinyasa Flow, Dharma Yoga and Yin Yoga classes, workshops, festivals, worldwide retreats and Yoga Teacher Trainings. My yoga journey expanded spontaneously and rapidly, unfolding with many enriching experiences, colourful travels, beautiful friendships and soul growth.

I have completed over a thousand hours of training with international tutors who have instilled inspiration and authenticity into my yoga practice and teaching. My extensive travels 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 philosophy 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.

I hold the E-RYT 500 designation from Yoga Alliance and I have received Excellence in Yoga Teacher Training Awards. It is a joy to share my knowledge and experience with you in this Enhance the Arts of Yoga Teacher Training for Yoga Teachers.
