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

With Kristin Vikjord


This workshop has taken place already, please visit our Workshop Page for a more recent offering of workshops and trainings.



In momentous transition times or difficult periods of life, it can be challenging to find ease and achieve emotional well-being (called Sukha in Buddhist tradition). Eastern thinkers and practices already knew that recovery from suffering requires knowing yourself. Western schools of psychology acknowledge this and believe in empowering emotional well-being through accessing your own agency.

What you will learn:

This workshop is for you if you want to dive deeper into your own process, get to know yourself more, or unravel yourself from emotional struggles. Embedded in a series 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 well-being.

 

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 well-being

Reading Material

  • Inner Spark by Kristin Vikjord.

Yogi Facilitator Training

This workshop is part of Level 1 of the Yogi Facilitator training by Kristin and open to individual yoga practitioners and yoga teachers wanting to learn more about mental emotional wellbeing or working in specific projects (eg. teaching prison yoga or in clinical settings​). The (fully offered online) Yogi Facilitator Training merges contemporary clinical knowledge of mental and emotional health and practices 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 will get to experience the connecting of the dots in its fullness. If you are (becoming) a yoga teacher, we recommend also following the other parts of this fully online program.

Previous experience from a student:

"The Yogi Facilitator leadership program has been a very valuable additional training to my yoga teacher trainings. It has given me a better understanding of the mechanisms of emotional and mental wellbeing and how to best facilitate yoga. In this training Kristin combines so beautifully the science of psychology and yoga, which has given me a stronger foundation for facilitating yoga. And I am also very impressed by Kristin’s guidance. Even in an online training, she creates a save and joyful learning environment for every participant!"- José Rog-Zoet
