Evolve Yoga 200hr Teacher Training – Embody your Body

With Kim Greeff

September 11th – November 20th

Yoga is about awareness, awareness in all our doings and all our beings. This training is for those seeking a deeper understanding of their bodies through the yogic lens of awareness and those with an innate desire or even curiosity to share that awareness through teaching. 

The Evolve Yoga method is based on observation. Becoming a student of your body first, then a student of your student’s bodies, as a graduate of this training  you will become acutely aware of how to adapt and change your yoga practice to address the needs of yourselves and your students in real time. By learning how to speak authentically, finding your own voice, you will be able to express and share about the poses and your practice in an undeniably heartfelt way. Teachers in training will become skilled at creative sequencing crafted in an anatomical understanding of how the poses affect the body and lead classes that enliven, restore and strengthen connection physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically.

Students taking the training will become perceptive in embody-mapping how they organize and align with gravity assisting them in a link to deeper self awareness on all levels, mentally, physically, emotionally and energetically.

Along with deep personal discovery and growth, trainees can expect to undergo a process of transformation and personal expansion, a very common outcome to immersing oneself fully into a course like this.
