This course is specifically for those who wish to use breath work for relief from Lockdown fatigue. It's also ideal for qualified yoga teachers who wish to teach pranayama and mantra in mainstream classes or to advanced students who wish to gain in-depth knowledge.
Mindflowyoga is accredited BWY, IYN and Yoga Alliance training school.
The course is just under 1 year long and has written and practical homework.
The practices of pranayama are explored thoroughly, deepening and stabilizing physical and mental control alongside rhythmic breath, ratio breathing.
The course covers a more in-depth integration of energetic bhanda and mudra, traditional bastriki, kapalabhati, and nadi shodhana. These are fully practiced alongside a variety of other pranayama techniques. The course is also great for those who wish for a better understanding of the correct application of mantra. Our course gives students an understanding of both the Sanskrit alphabet, understanding mantra enunciation and physical (tongue – mouth – breath ) conveyance, alongside the more empathic heart – mind connection.
Graduates receive a qualification to teach if previously qualified as a yoga teacher or a certificate of attendance (transferable* ) if not yet qualified.
