Yoga & Mindfulness (50 hours) - Online

With Kristin Vikjord Paternotte

The integration of Yoga and Mindfulness takes us beyond the realm of asana and physical practice. We invite ourselves to an attitude of awareness, where kindness, compassion and curiosity is practiced for us to open the gateway to be in the moment, to freedom. This online training is for yoga practitioners wishing to integrate the principles of mindfulness into their own practice, and for yoga teachers wishing to enrich their way of teaching. Through classical mindfulness practices as well as moving meditation, you will learn to practice self-inquiry to touch base with how you embody yourself in this particular moment of life.

 

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

 

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

 

Program outline:

  • Theory of insight tradition: the four noble truths, the four foundations of mindfulness, Buddha's eightfold path to end suffering
  • Mindfulness practices as skillful means
  • The integration of mindfulness in asana – moving meditation
  • Teaching methodology – how to teach Mindful Yoga

 

Online format:

The Yoga & Mindfulness training is offered as a nurturing home-based training. You'll be able to participate in this 50-hour training with access to all the material for an additional 6 months.

 

The daily schedule for the training will include live online sessions with a core time of 3 hours. All formal practices will be offered as recordings (video, audio, lectures) for you to access in your own time/rhythm (for example early mornings) on the training days. We advise to treat this period as little retreats, i.e. keeping the training days as free as possible, so you can fully integrate the teachings.

 

You'll be partnered with a dharma buddy (a colleague student) for reflection work as well as teaching practicum throughout the training days.

 

Typical daily schedule (subject to change):

9.00 - 10.00 hrs recorded practice (meditation, breathwork, asana)
10.00 - 12.45 hrs Log-in time live: sessions of 45 mins x 3, with 15 mins break
13.00 - 14.30 hrs Lunch break
14.30 - 15.15 hrs work with dharma buddy or individual reflection assignment
15.30 - 16.30 hrs teaching practicum
16.30 - 17.00 hrs recorded practice (meditation, breathwork, asana)

 

In addition, there will be assignments + journaling.

 

Kristin looks much forward to facilitating you in deepening mindfulness, yoga and compassion-based practices and theory. By the end of this training, you'll be confident in integrating these practices in your own practice and teaching.

 

Requirements:

This training is designed for yoga practitioners as well as yoga teachers. Participants need to have at least two years of regular yoga practice (including pranayama and meditation); or to have attended a silent retreat (minimum of ten days or more); or to have completed a MBSR-course or similar.

 

These 50 hours are part of the Delight Academy Advanced Teacher Training, however, this training is not in itself a teacher training program.

 

Yogi Facilitator Training:

This workshop is part of Level 1 of the Yogi Facilitator training by Kristin, which is open to individual yoga practitioners and yoga teachers. The (fully offered online) Yogi Facilitator Training merges contemporary clinical knowledge of mental and emotional health and practice with the wisdom traditions of yoga and dharma teachings. It juxtaposes the mindfulness practices from the dharma path seamlessly with the most updated empirical knowledge from applied psychology. We all know Buddha was the first cognitive therapist, however here you get to experience the connecting dots in its fullness. All workshops and modules of the Yogi Facilitator training can be followed on a stand-alone basis. If you are (becoming) a yoga teacher, we recommend exploring also the other parts of this fully online program. For more information, click on the links below:
