With Kevin Sahaj

This workshop has taken place already, please visit our Workshop Page for a more recent offering of workshops and trainings.
Sahaja Healing Yoga is a series of practices synthesized from Tibetan Yoga, Chinese Qi Gong, Hatha Yoga, Tibetan medicine and Ayurveda. Sahaja is a Sanskrit word meaning "spontaneous and natural", meaning the source of healing is within us as a natural spontaneous expression of connection and balance.
Kevin Sahaj has spent his whole adult life studying various systems of healing and yoga and has compiled, sequenced and created these practices based on his understanding of how they integrate and balance each other. The practices are simple and easy to learn. Anyone regardless of age and experience can benefit by following these methods.
Essentially healing yoga works more on the energetic level, so it is more subtle. To access healing we need to work with the pranic energies in the body in relation to our life in the external world. If we can facilitate the harmonious flow of energy in our body, we start to heal physical, emotional and mental disturbances and find a meaningful and creative outer and inner life.
The Sahaja Healing Yoga training is for teachers who would like to teach parts of the healing yoga sequences, or anyone who is interested in the subtle aspects of healing and prana. It will be a journey of awakening and a deepening of our awareness of ourselves on an experiential level.
This training will be offered by Kevin Sahaj, one of Delight's most experienced teachers in the field of energetic work, who has dedicated his life towards guiding his students in their healing and awakening journey. He has spent his whole adult life studying various systems of healing and yoga and has compiled, sequenced and created these practices based on his understanding of how they integrate and balance each other. Sahaj is one of the lead teachers of our teacher training Academy. This training is a great opportunity for students in Amsterdam to learn from him for the first time, or to reconnect with his teachings.
