D’Alijo Yoga Retreats
Price: from €1585
This course is meant for those who want to immerse themselves in the art of teaching functional yoga. The core of this course is anatomy: knowing how the body is built and how it moves. Skeletal segments, muscle groups, skeletal-anatomical variations and their importance in teaching yoga, meditation and lots of practice.
What you will learn
We dive into the 7 archetypal poses, and how to apply them to the needs of each individual student. We analyze the poses and their functions, learn modifications for injuries, adjustments and alternatives which can be applied to beginners, intermediate and advanced classes.
This training is meant to give you a thorough understanding of the human anatomy, which we believe will be immensely valuable in your teachings.
We will also look into the vocabulary of yoga postures and their variations and learn how to teach and sequence them.
Our Functional Hatha/Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training is based on the philosophical and anatomical principles as taught by our teachers Paul and Suzee Grilley, combined with over 40 years of experience of Anat and Marcel together.

The training is meant for anybody who has been practicing yoga for at least one year and has done Vinyasa Yoga before.
