Yoga & Mindfulness (50 hours)

With Kristin Skotnes Vikjord

As yoga teachers, we invite our students beyond the realm of asana and physical practice. We invite to an attitude of mindfulness, where kindness, compassion and curiosity is practiced for us to open the gateway to be in the moment, to freedom. Through classical mindfulness practices as well as moving meditation, you'll do self-inquiry to touch base with how you embody yourself, in this moment of life. 


You'll learn the four enobeling truths, about the dance between ease (sukkha) and unease (dukkha), the four foundations of mindfulness and the eightfold path to sustain skillfull living. You'll also learn how to teach mindfulness as a yoga teacher, in your yoga classes. In addition to learning classical mindfulness practices like various mindfulness meditations, body scan and 5 minute breathing space, you´ll also how to teach mindfulness as part of asana practice, as moving meditation. 


In this 50-hours program, the focus is learning the tools offered by insight tradition, mindfulness and compassionate based practices, synergized in yoga practice, and how to apply them as skillful means in your everyday life.

  • Theory of insight tradition: the four noble truths, the four foundations of mindfulness, Buddhas eightfold path to end suffering
