     New trainings starting in October 2017

Welcome to the YogaGarden Teacher Training!

Yoga has become very popular in our times; we’re happy it is so, as we sincerely believe that yoga can contribute to our evolution as people, increasing well being, self-knowledge and peace in our lives. But yoga is so much more than learning a few postures and a few quotes; it is actually a life time commitment, as we practice daily on and off our mats. A thorough, clear, accessible training will create the base for a life time of study and of fun.

The first rule in yoga is do no harm and a strong anatomy foundation will guide us on our way. This knowledge has to be brought to life by deep compassion and wisdom, and it is this combination of Anatomy and Philosophy that form the base of all our trainings.

We offer the following teacher trainings:

YGTT1

Vinyasa
200 Hours

This course is a classic: anatomy, philosophy, technique of postures, a variety of workshops on different topics, from use of voice to pregnancy yoga, and lots of practice. A 200-hour course meant for students who enjoy physical movement and wish to receive a broad, intense first education in yoga.

YGTT2

In depth studies
100 Hours

This course is specifically designed for those who have already followed a basic course and wish to learn more about anatomy, technique, sequencing and philosophy. The aim is to enable teachers to generate creativity and depth in their practice and their teachings.

YGTT3

Our crème de la crème: this training is based on Paul and Suzee Grilley’s, the founders of Yin Yoga, with whom we have been studying for many years.

Our focus is on Yin and Yang.

YogaGarden focuses on the Taoistic principles of Yin and Yang, the two fundamental and complementary main forces of the Universe. Yang is characterized by strength, rhythm and repetition, Yin by softness, stillness and ease.

A healthy and fulfilled life contains a healthy balance of both these aspects: too much Yang can turn someone rigid and aggressive, too much Yin may result in weakness or depression. It is part of our Yoga practice to develop the intuition and the wisdom to know what we need and when we need it. Some people are more prone to yin, others to yang, but everybody needs both. And the practice of postures is just the beginning: as the mind calms down and the body opens up, a well of vibrant energy emerges, allowing us to explore our full potential as human beings.

The two main pillars of our trainings are anatomy and philosophy. We believe that both disciplines are fundamental in learning to understand our bodies and those of our students, as well as our patterns of behavior, strengths and weaknesses. This knowledge is what guides us towards understanding and transcending our challenges and struggles.
