Yogi Facilitator Training: Find Ease in Unease by Knowing Yourself - Online

With Kristin Vikjord Paternotte

In significant transition times or difficult periods of life, it can be challenging to find ease and achieve emotional wellbeing (called Sukha in Buddhist tradition). Eastern thinkers and practices knew already that recovery from suffering requires knowing yourself. Western schools of psychology acknowledge this, and believe in empowering emotional wellbeing through accessing your own agency. This workshop is for you, if you want to step deeper into your own process, getting to know yourself more, or unravel yourself from emotional struggles. Embedded in a container of practices of meditation, essential breath work, and Mindful Yoga, you’ll learn how to reconnect to your inner spark and to empower your own emotional wellbeing.


Topics we will cover:

  • Understanding the dance between ease (Sukha) and unease (Dukkha)
  • Contemporary psychology meets the essentials of Buddhist psychology
  • Know your patterns to transform your wounds to wisdom: 4 questions for self-inquiry
  • Understanding readiness for change in your own process of change 
  • Tools to empower emotional wellbeing

Online format:

This workshop will be offered as a nurturing home-based retreat. After this weekend, you will get access to all the material (recorded practices and theory) for an additional 6 months.

The daily schedule for the training will include live online sessions (group / in pairs) as well as recordings. 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. 


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:
