Join YogaKoh for a week in beautiful Tuscany, Italy for our 50hr Advanced Training Retreat. This Retreat has been created for either; current yoga teachers, or passionate practitioners that are looking to grow their movement vocabulary, develop their practice and refine their teaching.
Over the 8 days we will dive into advanced asana and sequencing, what mobility is, and how to train it most efficiently, hands on assists, pranayama and meditation techniques as well as refining your teaching methods in the class room. You can expect discussions around the philosophy of the practice as well as time spent networking new ideas and developing content so you can take the next step in your teaching journey.
This course will count toward 50hr of the YogaKoh 300hr YTT as well as 50hrs toward Continuing Education hours with Yoga Alliance.
Our beautiful Italy location!
During this retreat you will learn how to break the rules of yoga alignment, liberate yourself from repetitive movement patterns, and uncover your body’s natural intelligence.
You’ll use a range of techniques and modalities to challenge your mobility, balance, strength, skill, and adaptability. You'll discover a greater potential, while increasing your embodied awareness, as well as sparking your creative juices for new and exciting sequencing to come forward.
There will be labs on cue refinement, using props to fortify your joints and enhance your practice, and exercises where you will integrate unconventional asana movements into your sequencing. You’ll even discover why bending the knee past the ankle is a great thing after all!
Your comfort zone will be challenged. You will experience how different movement patterns support a strong and stable asana practice. And by the end of it, you’ll understand how you — and your students — can move better.
