-----------------------------------------------------------

Course Description:

Join us for a 5 Day immersion in the beautiful island of Bali, diving into the Yoga Foundations. In this 25 hrs intensive course, you will get a deeper understanding of Asana, Pranayama, Meditation and how to invite the principles of yoga into your life on and off the mat. You will learn the proper alignment in the yoga asanas, how to get in and out of poses with safety, how to avoid yoga injuries, aspects of yogic anatomy and philosophy and how to create a safe self practice.  

We will explore the subtle and active aspects of the physical body and its alignment through movements and held postures, working with the breath and the energy body to enhance capacity and confidence. Yoga is more than simply the practice of asanas (postures), we will also explore aspects of pranayama (breath awareness), dharana (concentration) and dhyana (meditation) to help you achieve clarity, purpose and mindfulness both on and off your yoga mats.

This 25hrs course takes place over 5 days, providing a calm and balanced environment for learning and growth. By connecting the body and breath with your awareness, you will finish the course equipped with the knowledge and confidence to attend any yoga class in the future or to attend a TTC for those who wish to become future teachers. Each student will receive a copy of North Yoga's book “Visualise your Asana”, which includes visuals to guide you in your self practice and execution of the posture, along with the English and Sanskrit name for each asana.
