10 month yoga teacher training with Nina Vukas & Belinda Sutan
October 2018. - June 2019.
I am happy to announce a second 200/300 hour Vinyasa yoga teacher training in collaboration with dear friend and colleague, yoga teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience, Belinda Sutan and beautiful IN EX centre in central Milan, Italy where the TT will be held.
200 hour teacher training is 10 month programme based on 11 weekend intensives conducted every 3-5 weeks leaving sufficient time in between for practice and study of the new material. Every weekend intensive consists of 14,5 hours of practice and lectures. Programme is scheduled to start October 13th 2018. and finish in June 2019. In order to apply to the programme we require all students to have at least a year of committed asana practice.
300 hour teacher training is for those who already hold a 200 hour diploma in another yoga system and would like to learn Vinyasa yoga system as well as how to safely teach to special groups (Prenatal, Senior yoga, Wall yoga), you can join us for the 200 hour programme to which we will add additional 100 hours of Vinyasa studies. These will include Mandala Vinyasa module and Chakra flow module as well as elect guest workshops you may attend.
We expect a mixed group of students, and, even though all our teacher trainees will be supported in learning how to teach a class in their mother tongue, we believe it will be beneficial for all learning to teach classes in English language. Together with an internationally recognised YA diploma, this will create more opportunities for new teachers to teach classes worldwide. To ensure the quality and individual approach, the maximum number of students is 14.
Integral Vinyasa yoga
Integral Vinyasa method is a result of Nina's two decades of yoga studies, her continuous study and interest in anatomy and biomechanics of movement as well as Nina's study of body oriented psychotherapy which uses understanding and recognising of body posture and patterns to tap into the mind and the unconscious, and is the foundation of the Vinyasa yoga part of this teacher training.
The method is based upon the ancient yoga philosophy, traditional tantric and Hatha yoga teachings as well as the modern knowledge of anatomy and movement biomechanics. It follows traditional understanding of Vinyasa Krama, a system of progressions chosen to serve the gentle unfolding and integration of our body / mind, and expands from there.
Different sequences support different cycles in the life of each individual as well as nature's cycles. Each yoga practice should reinforce the balanced state of our body/mind considering the time of day, the season, moon phase, our own personal cycles, moods, energy levels and possible imbalances. Integral Vinyasa yoga method takes all this into consideration to promote balance, healing and integration.
Every practice includes different tools from the boundless yoga knowledge and, in addition to carefully chosen Namaskars and asana sequences, students will learn how to include pranayama, mudra, mantra and yoga philosophy in every class supporting the intention behind the practice.
Wall yoga, Prenatal yoga, adjustments and props
This part of the training, delivered by Belinda Sutan, will focus on special classes like Prenatal yoga, restorative sequences and wall yoga sequence, all requiring a good knowledge alignment in asana as well as of using props like blocks, bolsters, straps, wall straps, chairs etc, as well as hands on adjustments in order to help students find stability and comfort in asana in a safe and supportive way. The understanding of how to use adjustments and props is an important part of Vinyasa class as well as the special classes.
