6-DAY IMMERSION – MODULE 4: MEDITATION & INVERSIONS

Building on the principals of Anahata Yoga, these Immersions are retreats especially designed for yoga teachers and advanced practitioners from related fields e.g. physiotherapists, Ayurvedic practioners, psychologists, school teachers, coaches to expand his/her knowledge about Yoga.

Delivered in six immersions with a flexible structure, each module may be attended independently and certificates will be issued for each module. By completion of all six modules a 300hrs Yoga Alliance certificate will be issued. This modular approach allows you to integrate your acquired skills straight with your field of expertise, as well as build upon them. Hence, the overall goal is to enable participants to integrate newly acquired knowledge immediately in their practice, teaching and/or work.

With over 50 years of Yoga practice, Peter Clifford shares his knowledge from a vast pool of experience. Over the decades he has learned with TKV Desikachar, the son of Krishnamacharya, BKS Iyengar, and AG Mohan and his wife Indra, amongst others. In each module, Peter focuses on certain individual aspects of Anahata Yoga. Module 1 in Summer 2016 put its focus on Pranayama & Yoga Nidra. In 2017, Module 2 dived deeper into the Bio-Mechanics of Yoga, while Module 3 was all about Yoga Philosophy.

Modules 4 and 5 take place during summer 2018 and concentrate on Meditation and Inversions (Module 4), as well as Yoga Psychology & Yoga for stress management and depression (Module 5).

Hundsmarktmühle, Lake Fuschl

First mentioned in 1570, the Hundsmarktmühle is a sought-after mill now used as a venue in the Salzburg lake district. Located on the edge of the forrest, touched by a brook and just a stones throw away from turqoise Lake Fuschl – one of the most beautiful and astounding lakes in the district – the Hundsmarktmühle and its surrounding provide the perfect backdrop for our 6-Day Immersion. Find more information on the Hundsmarktmühle here and for impressions on the region we recommend checking out these panoramic shots.

 

We have booked the whole mill which offers a large Yoga room, a kitchen, a lounge area and a huge garden. And best of all: you may camp on site in the garden! And for those who don´t like to camp, please get in touch with us for further accomodation options. The brook running by the mill has drinkwater quality and also functions as the “bathroom” for our campers.

Eligiblity

Anahata Yoga Teacher Trainings are open to everyone.  Students are, however, expected to have a commitment to fully participate  and a genuine intention to learn and grow in the study of Yoga.  While it is expected that most students will have at least a year’s experience of Yoga practice, anyone with a desire to learn and a passion for Yoga is welcome.  While the course can be an intense experience, it is also joyful, transformative and profoundly rewarding. We promise you it’s worth the effort!
