Vinyasa Flow Yoga & Positive Psychology 200hr Teacher Training London 2019/2020

Absolutely. Positively. Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher Training with Yeotown Founder Mercedes Sieff is a 200hr Yoga Alliance (US) registered course that takes place over a 6 month period in London. This unique programme is the first YTT of its kind to combine both Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Positive Psychology, and utilises a strengths based approach to both teaching and practising Vinyasa Flow Yoga. This includes learning how to enhance and use key character strengths such as resilience, courage, curiosity and perspective to inspire both the student’s practice and the teacher’s teachings. Working hard to identify the teacher’s own inherent strengths and unique teaching voice , there will be a strong focus on intelligent and creative sequencing that takes into account the students and their needs and not a teacher’s pre-planned class or agenda.

This 6 month 200hr training will cover aspects such as key postures, alignment, sequencing, simple mantras, anatomy, props and a plethora of effective enhancements and adjustments. There will be discussions and discourse around the roots of yoga, taking into account the hotly debated more recent discoveries and theories around yoga and its history put forth by respected scholars and historians alike. You will learn about the many life enhancing facets of the science of Positive Psychology including easy to apply yet effective tools and exercises. This course will also provide space for coaching one another using various positive psychology approaches and how to use them with your students. It will explore the seminal work of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi including his findings around “Flow” (a highly focused mental state) and its connection to authentic happiness and a life of flourishing. Topics also explored will be the Growth Mindset and the work of Carol Dweck, alongside the concept of Curiosity as a key character strength beneficial in helping to create a life of meaning and purpose.
