Embodied Yoga Principles Teacher Training Auckland 2018

About the EYP Teacher Training
 

The EYP teacher training is a well-structured, intense, pragmatic, 4-day immersion into Embodied Yoga for people wishing to grow personally and use EYP professionally. You may be interested in EYP teacher trainings for one or more of several reasons.

Come if you'd like :
 

  • a deep dive into self-awareness and personal growth 
     

  • to develop new aspects of your yoga practice & teaching, that's deep yet practical 
     

  • to use elements of EYP to psychologically enrich your own yoga classes and help students get their learning "off the mat"
     

  • to teach dedicated EYP classes
     

  • to join a supportive dynamic international community 
     

  • to learn postures that can be used as part of coaching & training outside of yoga 
     

  • to have fun learning something new and unique
     

It consists of four days, some pre-coursework (mostly watching videos)
and personal practice afterwards if you wish to officially qualify.
 

 

The training is as much about developing as a person as it is about picking up new techniques and the principles themselves, so you can practice EYP in your own creative way. 

Because Embodied Yoga is a set of principles rather than a style, it can add a new dimension to any approach to practice and be used creatively. 

 

The training is not to be taken lightly as involves some work and much personal challenge. It will be deep, fun, personally and professionally enriching, but not all easy. 
 

It is taught by EYP founder Mark Walsh.

Quotes about Embodied Yoga Principles

"Mark’s talent is in breadth of vision unmatched by anybody else I know. He can provide a learning experience which draws on many experts and many forms of embodiment understanding and skill and integrates it all so that it forms a more whole process of change and growth."

Paul Linden

Founder of Being in Movement®, Aikido teacher, Columbus Ohio, USA

“It brings rigorous self enquiry into my physical practice.  It's a way of bringing self study to life in practical and playful ways. EYP is adaptable, you can use it in simple ways to enhance a general yoga class and in a life changing way in longer workshops.”

Amanda Brown,Yoga Teacher

Cornwall, UK

“Embodied Yoga offers a much needed fresh authentic perspective on yoga. Its not offering an opportunity to float off into spiritual la-la and distance oneself from life’s suffering, on the contrary it encourages the participant to become fully aware and to take responsibility for what is going on in their body and mind, becoming aware of patterns and shadows in a safe supported environment.”

Jane D

Sussex, UK

“Mark has pressed the refresh button on the yoga world to see the practice of yoga through the eyes of embodiment brings a welcome new view. The methods of embodiment link the practice on the yoga mat and brings it firmly out into the world of our relationships,work and all aspects of life...and extends our range of practices as yoga teachers.”

Ady Griffiths, (Vidyadasa) - Hatha Yoga Teacher

Brighton, UK

"Using posture practice to gain personal awareness and choice to improve life beyond the mat”

Preya Chauhan -Founder of Cherish Healing

“Embodied Yoga is a refreshing take on yoga as a method of self-enquiry and transformation. Highly effective for transforming your patterns of behaviour.”

Application process 
 

EYP is not for everyone so we like to see if it's a good fit ahead of the training. The application process involves :  

 

• a Skype phone call to see the course is suitable
 

• full or half payment upfront 
(non-refundable except in case of family emergency)

 

NB: This training is quite deep/intense and not everyone is ready to lead EYP classes, or in a good place for the training personally. We’d recommend not applying if you are not well emotionally resourced currently, have active mental health issues or have suffered a recent major loss. If that all sounds a bit scary we'd also note that while tiring all past TT's have been loads of fun!

Notes on qualification given
 

If candidates wish to teach EYP classes after the course they should also have a recognised 200hr yoga teaching qualification or equivalent. There will also be a (fairly relaxed) exam, an element of continual assessment on the course, some light reading and videos watching (max 5 books and 5 hours) and further personal development recommendations to qualify as a full EYP teacher.

 

Being an EYP teacher requires considerable emotional maturity and facilitation skills quite different from regular asana classes and we take this seriously. It is not guaranteed you will pass to the level of full EYP teacher qualification and if you do there are certain ethical and branding standards for EYP teachers (available on request). All participants will learn elements of EYP however that they can incorporate into existing classes that they teach irrespective.

This is the 3rd publicly offered EYP teacher-training in the UK,(there have been other teacher trainings in Lithuania and the Ukraine (contact us for information about other countries, or to host a training your country).

“Being encouraged to notice how I approached practice, and how I related to others during the class reflected unhelpful patterns and stories that I recognised play out in my in my life outside the studio, and are limiting me. Powerfully insightful.”Embodied Yoga is a refreshing take on yoga as a method of self-enquiry and transformation. Highly effective for transforming your patterns of behaviour.”
