Suryalila Yoga Retreat Centre

Somatic Yin Yoga Teacher Training

With Jade Wood

April 7, 2018 — April 14, 2018

8 days at the stunning Suryalila retreat in the heart of nature, guided in the art of Somatic Yin: moving slowly, absorbing subtle sensations, receiving self healing and enhancing your touch sensitivity – unfolding into the deepest layers of yourself. This training is fully residential and catered with vibrant vegetarian food, housed in bright shared apartments with access to divine a salt water pool and sauna and the beautiful hills of Andalusia.
If first we Feel ~ and then we Share ~ all are Healed 
This training initiates a journey of skillful listening for each participant, understanding first how the Yin postures and transitional Somatic movements can be beneficial for you, and then how to teach them effectively to others. It’s a process of feeling deeply and re-patterning your system to it’s optimal potential. To listen in and reclaim space, receive sensations and learn to look out for pleasure instead of pain and allowing stories long-held in the system to be gently revealed and released. Learn about your central nervous system and the way that sensations are received, share your insights with your peers and enjoy practicing in a deeply personal way that ignites and honours you as an individual.
Personal Yoga. Deep Embodiment. Lightness of Being.

Expect to encounter:

  • Yourself and each other in a very real way!
  • Explorations of anatomy both musculoskeletal and internal
  • Demystifying tension vs compression ~ locating barriers to range of motion and learning how to stimulate your tissues and meridians
