Opening retreat for the 2017 Embodied Mind Teacher Training with Jill Sattefield. 

What is the Embodied Mind Teacher Training?

The Vajra Yoga + Meditation Embodied Mind training is not your typical yoga teacher training, nor is it your typical mindfulness training – it is an integration of mindfulness, meditation and embodiment practices: meditation and yoga, yoga therapy and compassion practices, self reflection and self regulation, kindness braided into a variety of empowering ‘in the body’ practices. Embodied Mind offers an integration of mind and body practices to facilitate being present, sane and clear minded, kind and socially engaged, grounded with the ability to make wise, compassionate choices for your own life, your work, the world.

During the course of the training, you will practice, examine, reflect, and have lively conversation about mindfulness of the body and mindful embodiment (yoga asana, yoga therapy, breath techniques) practices. This training creates a foundation for each individual to skillfully branch outwards — into the community and profession of their own choosing, reflecting the teachings in a personal and unique way which blossoms from direct experience and embodiment.
