100h intensive seminar

Five weekends: 100 hours of yoga teacher training

100h Applied Yoga Therapy - what works, focused on the essentials - with Dr. med. Günter Niessen and Katharina Lehman (HP Psychotherapy). The 5 seminar weekends are aimed at yoga teachers AND other regular yoga practitioners who want to use yoga as part of their therapeutic work.

The more yoga opens up to ALL, the more people of all ages and fitness levels find their way into our classes. Many yoga teachers are faced with the task of creatively adapting classes to possible limitations and sensitively responding to sensitivities without overextending themselves. At the same time, new opportunities arise to specialize in the most diverse clientele in both group and individual settings.

For this purpose, we have developed the 100h intensive seminar "Applied Yoga Therapy", which takes place over five weekends. The contents reflect our many years of experience with clients and their diverse problems. Without going too much into the theory of disease, we deepen your knowledge of the effects of yoga and make clear the therapeutic aspects of movements, breathing techniques, relaxation methods and meditation. We provide a solid foundation of knowledge about common ailments and the variations necessary for the specific application of yogic techniques. Emphasis is placed on guiding people with a wide variety of needs or personal desires.

A growing field of activity for yoga teachers is individual instruction or personal yoga. How do we design a personal practice that meets individual needs and supports personal development and promotes vitality?

Individual classes are a joint creation of teacher and student, we pay attention to behavioral and movement patterns, try to perceive what is going on in the other person and work out a goal together. With some basic knowledge of functional anatomy and physiology, common mechanisms of injury, the benefits of postures and breathing techniques, we can select some targeted Āsanas or exercise sequences - Vinyāsas - practice a Prānāyāma and introduce relaxing techniques of yoga to address the particular circumstances of life - we can get specific and thus integrate the therapeutic approach into the yoga practice. In this way, yoga can help relieve pain, activate inherent reserves, and balance imbalances.

To promote personal agility, self-awareness and self-efficacy at all levels, we incorporate the Yogasūtra, basic Ayurvedic principles and aspects of modern medicine and psychology, as well as common sense.
