PARTNERYOGA TEACHER TRAINING 50 HRS
JANUARI - MAY 2018
An offering for Yoga teachers, movement & bodywork professionals.
Since 2015 Infinite Play offers a PartnerYoga Teacher Training
for Yoga teachers and other professionals in the field of movement, bodywork & healing arts.
This training is not specifically focussed on couples, but if you want to join as a couiple, you are very welcome.
The focus of this training is to find the authentic connection with your essence (your heart) and with that as a fundament relate with the world around you. The practices we use to make this journey are PartnerYoga, Thai Massage and Therapeutic Flying.
Partner dance, concious communication and partner meditations are woven through the training to deepen the experience of relating.
NOTE, this training does not include the practice of Solar AcroYoga anymore, but is now focussed on a personal / spiritual journey that is focussed on relating, freedom & connection, masculine & feminine elements. There will still be Lunar AcroYoga in this training (therapeutic Flying)
The training is a 5 weekend journey together with your co-participants, expanding your skills and experience as a (yoga)teacher and taking a personal transformational journey.
In this Partner Yoga training we will explore and learn different forms of PartnerYoga. From silence, meditation, and connecting from the heart, to playful practices cultivating trust & surrender.
PartnerYoga is a practice where we do yoga asana's on the floor, together with a partner. This means that we can do a flow of asana's where some postures are held alone, and some postures are supported by your partner.
Also in PartnerYoga we will practice circle yoga/circle ceremony, where we practice asana in a groups circle and support or connect through our bodies by touch, weight or counterbalance.
PartnerYoga can also be more from a state of meditation (energetic), where we are not physically touching, but connecting for example through looking in each others eyes, or speaking.
Thai Massage is an ancient healing technique originated in the Budhist temples in Thailand. The practice was carried out by monks as a healing service. It was given from a meditative state in silence. The philosophy is rooted in the 4 forms of love; metta, karuna, mudita & upeskha, which means loving kindness, compassion, joy & equanimity (non attachment).
The physical principals & techniques are creating a container in which these states can be experienced.
Therapeuic Flying is a practice that is the lunar (feminine) 'wing' of the AcroYoga practice. You learn to lift each other up, and using the same principles of Thai Yoga Massage, you will give (and receive) a flying massage session. In this practice you will learn to base (be on the floor to lift someone), which is more the masculine, guiding & directing quality, and you will learn to be lifted, so you can receive and surrender (which is more the feminine quality).
PartnerYoga, Thai Massage and Therapeutic flying will be combined with (contact)dance, meditation, group yoga, circle ceremony, theater games and more.
Discovering through your own experience, we learn, experience and share what it is to connect with your heart, to trust your heart and to connect, relate and live from there.
In this training we inquire & explore with the quote: “Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, Love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves.” This means that both tantric and non dual principles will be explored through the practice of Partner Yoga.
