OPENING IMMERSION FOUR: focusses on using the Seven Universal Actions of Yoga Posture Praxis to develope the power, flexibility and resilience of the spine and its supporting musculature. You will learn how to apply the Dynamics of Integrity to mobilise and strengthen the spine as the core of the body, and the heart of yoga posture praxis. This immersion has a strong emphasis on backbends, and is open to anyone, teachers as well as pratititioners, interested in the bionechanical and energetic integrity of the bodimind. It is especially fruitful for newcomers to yoga posture praxis, and anyone who considers themselves to be an advanced practitioner.

Each morning Olivia guides a long yoga practice incouding pranayama and meditation. After the practice Olivia and Birgitte presents the postures and techniques used in the morning practice. After lunch birgitte leads a guided exploration of the techniques to help you assimilate and integrate them in your own practice. If we have time we conclude the day with a short, soft yoga class.

About immersion modules and Dynamic Yoga Teacher Training

The immersions with Olivia and senior teachers are offered several times a year around Europe and constitute the first half of the 400-hour Dynamic yoga teacher training (4 immersions in total). To become a Dynamic Yoga teacher you will need to complete all four immersion modules (again in no particular order) plus a 3 week residential ‘Teaching Skills’ intensive with Godfrey Devereux and Olivia Crooks. This is held each September in France at Windfire School of Yoga. Any trained teacher with a 200 hour certificate from another school of yoga, can add hours from immersion modules and teacher trainings to move towards 500hour or 1000 hour certification.

THE TEACHERS:

OLIVIA CROOKS (www.dynamicyoga.com)

Totally committed to allowing the wisdom of life to guide her through the intelligence of the body Olivia has a manner and teaching style based on the depths and subtleties of her personal practice. Inspiring and supportive, she is able to invite practitioners of all experience to go deeper into their own nature safely and effectively, while bringing new, liberating insights from the mat into daily life. She began formal Yoga teacher training in Sydney, Australia by completing 1000hrs in 2001. Since 2004 she has been studying the Dynamic Yoga Training Method closely with its originator Godfri Devereux, and has completed 10,000 hrs in a Teachers Apprenticeship with him. She is one of only two certified Senior Trainers of the Method.

BIRGITTE GORM HANSEN (www.dynamicyoga.dk)
Is one of the five senior teachers in Dynamic Yoga. Originally trained as a psychologist (Ph.D) she started practicing yoga in 1996 and has taught since 2001. Birgitte is based in Copenhagen, Denmark but frequently teaches workshops and retreats in Scandinavia and around Europe.

Birgitte has studied with Godfrey Devereux through all her years of teaching and has been assisting Dynamic Yoga Teacher trainings since 2006. Her instruction is joyfully clear and comes from a deep commitment to help students access their teacher within. Her classes invite you to subtlety deepen the awareness of your physical body and establish the deepest possible intimacy with life, just as it is.

In her practice and teaching she enquires into the possibility of falling lightheartedly from the pedestal of knowledge into the arms of wisdom.
