Are you a yoga teacher wanting to add somatic breath work to your class offerings? Then this intensive is right for you.
Join Robert Bahedry for an amazing 4-day journey into the world of breath and the power of release from this intense three part somatic breathing technique. You will learn to create a safe space for your students, hone your intuition and be prepared to guide people on a healing journey riding the breath.
During this intensive you will learn to prepare a space for the practice in a mindful and thoughtful way, plan music that will enhance the breath experience with rhythm and intensity, and prepare your students for the experience. You will learn the science behind this type of breathing practice and how it is similar and different from other breath techniques. You will learn to identify students who are struggling, understand common contraindications and maintain a safe environment for your students.
You will hone your intuition and develop a deeper understanding of what your students may experience and where they might find an intense release, In this program Robert will use his years of education and experience to provide a firm foundation to help develop the healing skills you already possess and to understand the process that is occurring for your students. You do the practice daily and experience it inside your own body and mind.
Upon completion of this training you will be ready for the practicum. As in all of our Yoga School programs you will have an opportunity to put your new skills to work in the classroom through a breath work community class rotation under the supervision of your mentor. Taking what you have learned and combining it with your classroom management skills will give you the confidence to lead this healing practice on your own in a short period of time for private lessons or public practice.
Big Sur Breathwork Intensive
June 9th-June 12th 2023
Big Sur, California
You will begin each day with a meditative morning yoga practice to ground you firmly in the moment and prepare you for your training. Your mornings will be spent learning new skills in a safe and supportive environment surrounded by the redwoods in Big Sur Lodge. We will have beverages and refreshments available throughout the day. Afternoons bring time to relax, reflect and perhaps indulge in a massage or a group walk in the forests or along the cliff lined beaches! Each evening you will be filled with awe as you watch another sunset painting the sky with orange and purple light as it sinks below the rugged cliffs of the pacific before returning to your training.
You will find complete relaxation on the grounds at Big Sur Lodge. This historic lodge is nestled inside Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. The rooms are cottage style and feature either a king bed or two queen sized beds and a private bathroom. Double rooms feature a separate bedroom with one queen bed and the other in the main room. For couples wishing to have a king room please note that on the reservation form so we can accommodate.
Our breakfasts will feature a wonderful continental buffet style served in our private meeting space. We will be taking our lunches with us on our excursions, or dining in the restaurant depending on the training schedule. For dinner, the main restaurant also features an amazing menu with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options. On our last night we will pack a picnic dinner to enjoy at the ocean as we watch the amazing sunset. We will do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions, however, please let us know what those are on the booking form. Because of the remoteness of the area, we need to work well in advance to plan and accommodate your needs.
