With over 80 years of yoga practice and teaching experience between them, Dyana Wells, Karla Brodie, Neal Ghoshal and Vincent Bolletta have one key aim – to deliver excellence in all their classes, workshops and courses.
Together they designed, developed and presented over 14 yoga teacher training courses over the past years, a combination of 200-Hour and 300-Hour Yoga Alliance accredited programs.

The combination of yoga-focused anatomy and physiology, with the principles of biomechanics, functional yoga and developmental movement patterns, allows you to develop a full and authentic approach to yoga.
The yoga philosophy aspect puts asana practice into the larger context of a spiritual practice. It is our aim that you feel confident to teach yoga classes safely and creatively at the end of the training.
Fees include an extensive and professional training manual which is an invaluable resource for teaching and yoga practice for years to come.
200-Hour training is designed to assist you to:

Training Description

RISE is a Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour program, recognised by and registered through the School of Embodied Flow™ and grounded in vinyasa yoga and tantric teachings. Backed by several years of experience in teaching yoga teacher trainings at the 200 hour basic and the 300 hour advanced training, we commit to offering the highest standard of teaching methods.

Think of this as four months to upgrade your life, bookended by 14 immersive days to transform everything you love and know to be true – in the dance of the highs and lows of your humanness – into the artistry of teaching yoga and facilitating change.

In this yoga immersion and training we bring to life the potential in our practices with a limited-size group of curious people who are ready to question, explore and shake things up.

We create spaces where we feel that we belong, where we feel at home. We inspire hope, belief and trust. We move and be moved, challenge and be challenged, with the perfect blend of practical knowledge and spiritual meaning.

We examine how we doubt and suffer and alchemize it with vulnerability and love. We create boundaries to find a framework for freedom, and we crack our perspective wide open. We come together to laugh and deepen our joy and shed our pain. We find stillness. We articulate and bring into being all that’s possible within, while revelling in how truly magical – and similar – we actually are.

At the end of this immersion you’ll have the tools to meditate daily (finally); a knowledge and experience of the deeper practices of yoga to help bring your best self forward in everything you do; a love affair with your body in which you can practice vinyasa yoga with play, smarts and soul; a transformation of the unhelpful patterns in your life; life-long connections with life-affirming friends; courage to speak your truth in every relationship; and a greater understanding and embodiment of what deep aliveness and fulfilment really is for you.

Visit our website for a breakdown of the content, and to learn more about what the follow on programme The Art and Science of Teaching covers, to hear from others who’ve experienced the training, and to learn more about the lead facilitator Adele Kinghan.

“Put the warmest heart and graceful action with shockingly razor sharp intellect and wit, package it in a beautiful embodiment of a human being and you get Adele Kinghan. I have had the pleasure of knowing Adele for six years, and consider her to be the full package of a master facilitator. Adele has the rare capacity to make anyone feel joyous to be alive. She somehow makes the most complicated things seem easily achievable, and approaches each day and task with untroubled competence evocative of all the world’s greatest leaders. Her depth and breadth of yogic knowledge is paralleled by few. I would highly recommend any training with Adele as a rich tapestry of deep learning, and an elegant dive into being, with a great great teacher.” Tara Judelle – Embodied Flow™

Module III

23 – 28 October 2017    (Auckland)

Training Description

Yin Therapy’s Yoga Alliance certified course comprises of four 50 hour modules focusing on various key aspects:

– asana practice  – yoga anatomy – fascia research – yoga philosophy – chakra & meridian theory – pranayama, meditation – ethics – teaching methods

Yin Therapy’s course shares ancient yogic knowledge combined with the most recent scientific research.

Your journey will begin on the physical level with asana practice and anatomy (modules I + II). You will learn the foundation of hatha yoga’s profound passive practice – Yin Yoga. Together with Yin Therapy’s simple and effective analysing system, these comprehensive asana and anatomy modules will give you all the skills necessary to be a highly qualified, professional and confident yoga instructor for teaching both yin and yang style yoga classes.

In modules III & IV the focus changes as you explore yin yoga as a powerful meditation and energy practice. You will not only gain theoretical knowledge of chakra and meridian work, you will learn how to feel and direct the subtle sensations of chi flow so you can teach others from a place of experience. On being able to refine your own practice, your knowledge will go beyond the theory and your teaching will come from a place of authenticity.

Yin Therapy’s teaching is from the heart, rather then the head.

As the course nears completion, you will enter into the world of yoga philosophy. You will encounter the immense depth of yoga practice and the goal of yoga.

Yin Therapy believes the most effective way to learn is with joy and trust, and therefore it is important for them to create an atmosphere of lightness, fun and community. In saying that, there are also times of deep intense studying while also creating a nurturing and safe environment to allow you to fully experience the intense mental, emotional and physical affects of this profound practice.

Markus and Karin currently offer their Yin Therapy 200hr Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training and workshops throughout Germany, in Switzerland, Austria, Australia and New Zealand.
