SLEEP RECOVERY TRAINING

Triyoga Teacher Training
Diploma (390 hours)

I will once again collaborate with Erika Tourell to lead the Triyoga teacher training diploma course (intake 26) from June 2018 through 2020.The 24 month (390 hour) course covers asana, pranayama, philosophy, anatomy and physiology plus mentoring and professional supervision to provide support in the transition from student to yoga teacher.My role is not only in instructing and teaching you how to teach asana and pranayama: it involves helping you to develop your insight, perspective and voice first, and then to offer yoga’s power and potential onward. This is challenging, transformative work. Developing depth of understanding, language and skill help us to lead others into their own exploration. The collaboration with Erika makes for a balanced and enjoyable training, as our skills and character complement one another perfectly.

Yoga Therapy for Insomnia & Sleep Recovery (40 hours approx.)

This is the teacher training that brings Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery to life.With contributions from a Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Shivanthi Sathanandan, and a detailed training manual, this course provides both the theoretical and practical training necessary to teach yoga classes, courses and one to ones for those experiencing sleep problems. Sessions will include asana, pranayama, meditation, marma points, and consultation on healthy sleep habits. You will learn to tailor what you offer to individual needs and to work with different body-mind sleep ‘types.’The emphasis of the course is on supporting healthy sleep through appropriate holistic yoga practices. There will be opportunities for teaching practice, as well as an assessment on the final day.

Each day will include a practice of the techniques being learnt, including asana (hatha and restorative), pranayama, meditation, and more so that you have direct experience of all the practices that you are offering to others. We will follow the sleep-wake guidance we will give to others in how we approach the training day. Many who take the course notice that their sleep improves whether they are ‘insomniac’ or not!

At the end of the course you will  be equipped to teach multi-week Sleep Recovery courses. If you are already qualified as a yoga teacher, you will receive a Yoga Therapy for Insomnia & Sleep Recovery Certificate and will be eligible for listing in the online directory. This is the time!

The Sleep Recovery Public Services Scholarship:

If you teach yoga in public services (NHS, mental health, schools, prisons, foster care, addiction recovery) you may apply for one of two scholarships available for each training.  Check local listings for more information.

  • Learn how to see the key four Jungian personality types and the yoga practices that awaken and support each of them
  • Explore the energetic principles of the East-West chakra system and the practices that help to balance life-force-energy in each area, moving from excess or deficiency to functional, dynamic equilibrium
  • Explore the benefits and limitations of a ‘clinical’ model for understanding mental health as it relates to the seven chakras and other models
  • Learn the signals of trauma in a person’s body and nervous system; and learn key principles of trauma-sensitive practices for classes and individual work
