Embodied Yoga Principles Teacher Training 2018

About the EYP Teacher Training
 

The EYP teacher training is a well-structured, intense, pragmatic, 4 or 5-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, senior teacher Vidyadasa (Ady Griffiths) and with guest EYP teachers supporting.  

Suitable for:

people experienced in any style of yoga looking to add a whole new dimension to their practice and deepen their personal awareness and growth
 

  • people already qualified to teach any style of yoga looking to add elements of depth, pragmatism and breadth from other embodied arts that they teach
     

  • those looking to be able to teach EYP as a stand-alone class
    (no guarantee, see below)
     

  • those up for a challenging emotional journey
     

  • people with a sense of humour (vital for the training)
     

  • people who care about social issue and the world beyond the mat
     

  • people looking to join a community of like-minded teachers working non-dogmatically and creatively in an emerging field.

Course content:
 
  • what exactly is EYP?
     

  • thorough training in the 24 main postures of EYP 
     

  • how to structure an EYP class
     

  • how to integrate EY principles into existing classes and 1-1 work such as coaching and yoga therapy
     

  • how to teach well 
     

  • marketing EYP and yoga generally (a big hit last year !)
     

  • trauma awareness for yogis (Mark's specialism) see video
     

  • fundamentals of meditation (Vidyadasa's specialism)
     

  • ongoing embodied development and support

how to teach well 

“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

“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 : 

 

• attending a class/workshop with an EYP teacher 
(to get a taste of EYP if at all possible) see
 EYP EVENTS 

(note if you are unable to attend an event before please contact Vidyadasa as it is possible for you to attend)
 

 

• a phone chat to see if it’s a good fit (contact on right)
 

• 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.

“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.”
