Life is full of ups and downs. The practice of mindfulness is to help us cultivate a sense of openness towards all kinds of experiences in our lives. Combining the masculine nature of the Yoga Sutras with the feminine nature of Mindfulness, we learn to master the Middle Way, knowing when to act and when to retrieve on our spiritual paths and in our lives.

Mindfulness is a practice of cultivating equanimity and awareness. Unlike the knowledge in our minds, insights cannot be rushed or taught, they can only be born out of our personal experiences. For this reason, this module requires longer study time so that you can experience the healing power of mindfulness in your everyday life. This is an 8-week program consists of three parts:

7-days training: The foundations of Mindfulness
5-weeks self-study: Applying Mindfulness in everyday life and yin yang asana practice
10-days training: Fine tuning and deepening the understanding of Mindfulness

 

Certification:

This is a mandatory module for the 300-hr advanced apprentices, and an option as continuing education.
