INTEGRATING IMMERSION TWO WITH OLIVIA AND BIRGITTE: focusses on integrating the Seven Universal Actions of Yoga Posture Praxis as the muscular basis of the bandhas in the whole body.

This immersion is open to anyone, teachers as well as pratititioners, interested in the biomechanical 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.

About immersion modules and Dynamic Yoga Teacher Training
In 2014 dynamicyoga.dk and Yogarummet will be hosting 4 immersions in Stockholm. The modules are open to anyone wanting to deepen their yoga practice. Each immersion can be booked individually and can be taken in any order. The immersions are open to all yoga practioners
Taken together, the four immersions constitute the first half of the 200-hour Dynamic yoga teacher training. In practice though, this involves close to 300 hours of contact hours in training. To become certified in this 200hour training 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 these hours to this 200hour training to make 500hours.
Each day will include a long yoga practice with pranayama and meditation and a presentation of the postures and techniques used in the morning practice. The afternoon consists of a guided exploration of the techniques and if time another short yoga class at the end of the day.
