Join us at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada for a week of expansion and learning in Nature. The Yoga & Nutritional Therapy Training it´s a hands-on course focused on learning the basics of individualised yoga and functional plant based nutrition to optimise your personal constitution and practice.
You will be able to design a therapy practice based in harmonising the 5 Elements and their correspondent 12 organs-meridians, by learning how to assess what´s appropriate and when in the spectrum of movement, eating patterns and lifestyle choices.
Yoga therapy is the application of yoga to promote health and well-being in the individual, taking in consideration personal factors like age, constitution, present condition, lifestyle habits, living environment and personal relationships. To apply these principles one must practice self-observation, objective assessment, together with defining personal goals for our health and spiritual growth.
Personal yoga practices in alignment with your health´s needs
The retreat format of this course will facilitate the embodiment of these teachings and the communion with Nature, as we will divide our time between the yoga mat, the kitchen lab and in the contemplation of Nature´s Elements.
The training encourages each student to listen deeply their own process and undertake specific practices for self-inquiry held within the group experience. The day is packed with practices, lectures and experiential learning weaved with plenty of time to rest by the pool, go for a hike in the mountains or simply take a nap. The principle is that you do what you need inside the proposed schedule.
We cover a variety of styles during the course as we work with the different Elements, so the style serves the purpose of experiencing the Element that we are specifically working. From alignment based Hatha and Vinyasa Flow to the more subtle energetic practices of Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness, students will learn different ways of practicing and assessing what better suits their constitution and condition.
