Modular Structure

This structure offers a large gap between the first and second parts of the training. This is very important with somatic work as the periods of rest, reflection, self study, teaching practice and digestion are as important as the actual content of the training. They work to balance one another and provide a safe wide container for integration.

As both parts of the training are residential this requires that students live, practice, eat, cook and sleep together for 2 weeks. It is very important that students are cooperative and make a clear intention to live harmoniously, so that there is an atmosphere of calm and stability within the house. These residential modules are intensive and both students and teachers often need time to be alone to process what they are engaging with and what they are experiencing.

We also need to work together as a team so that the house systems such as the karma yoga and cooking rotas run smoothly and everyone feels respected and contributing equally within the community environment.

As the programme takes place within a retreat environment and we are doing 8 / 9 hours of practice and study daily, it is possible that we may perceive things in an amplified under such conditions. This is the opportunity that a retreat environment offers us, away from the everyday routines, obligations and distractions of normal modern life.

Students will be offered support during the open process sessions, mindfulness sessions, relational exercises, and sharing circles to communicate, reflect and process what is coming up for them so the whole training becomes a conscious experience and any challenges or difficulties (which are normal) can worked with gently and skillfully to bring about deeper understanding of the workings of the body, heart and mind.

Students will also have two one to one sessions with one of teaching team again as ongoing opportunities to ask specific questions or receive specific support.

As teachers enter into this process with the students, we also ask that students respect the teachers space and keep questions about yoga and mindfulness to the class environment. We also ask students to be mindful and respectful of the teachers need to eat, be quiet, sleep, rest and process the training too.

It is a long training to hold and we have to pace ourselves, so we would be really happy if students could take care of the teaching team too! Asking a teacher if they would like a cup of tea or some food saved for them goes a long way to co-creating a beautiful, harmonious, caring atmosphere.

We are all in the boat together!
