Only a few days after the International Yoga Festival at Kawai Purapura the 150 hour module “Evolve as a Teacher; Therapeutic Elements of Yoga” takes place. Mark Whitwell teaches from 9th – 11th March “Yoga from the heart”:
“Yoga isn’t just something you do, it’s something you feel; a deep connection; a warmth spreading from your heart all the way through your body; the beating of your heart in the silence and stillness of meditation. Yoga should both start and end at the heart.”
Mark Whitwell offers the simple principles from the Great Tradition that can be applied to all styles and kinds of yoga in order to make your Yoga completely your own: efficient, powerful and safe. Throughout these days, Mark will demonstrate how that the heart of Yoga is relationship and show participants how to actually befriend and relate to their students, free of any power structures.
