Prenatal yoga certificate obtained

In February I spent a prolonged weekend with a bunch of wonderful yoginis and Carla Anselm from Open Sky Yoga Center (USA) to learn about prenatal and postpartum yoga. We had a wonderful time, Carla is very entertaining and knowledgeable. It was an intense 3 days mini TTC.

After the training we were supposed to do quite some homework, that I did bit by bit and finally handed in last month ! And yesterday the certificate and Carla’s feedback came in the mail ! It truly made my day.

I’ve been applying the teachings to my classes which held several pregnant students and it’s simply great to be able to offer them the guidance they need in that sacred special time of their lives. I even taught a couple of online (Skype) classes to my BFF who’s living in a different country.

All in all, it’s such valuable knowledge and I’m very grateful to my wonderful teacher for her guidance. Obviously this is only the beginning and I’m striving to take many more courses and learn from my students to be able to develop myself continuously.

Yin Yoga certificate obtained

Better late than never, I’ve received my Yin Yoga certificate after completing the 80 hours Yin Yoga & Mindfulness TTC with the wonderful Sarah & Ty Powers in France in 2014. Thanks to this TTC I’ve been able to incorporate the poses and teachings in my regular yoga classes and notice that students love the deeper poses despite the obvious physical and mental blockages that sometimes hinder them with this practice. It’s about letting go and going deeper inside to release blocked energy from the meridians, organs and nadis and stretch the connective tissues.

“The Yin practice is an inward practice of receptivity that targets the regeneration of the Yin tissues through a passive static practice.”
