Meditation is more than stillness; it’s a vibrant tapestry of experiences. Within these days, we unravel a diverse array of meditation techniques, from rhythmic shaking and spirited dancing to the profound depths of OSHO meditations.
Embrace your unique voice with the guidance of our gifted voice therapist, Kim. This journey delves into the realms of vulnerability, strength, and the resonant depths of your own voice.
This course is dedicated to cultivating a profound connection with a complete yoga practice. As teachers, our duty is to craft practices that offer depth, balance, and intention.

We’ll elevate your cueing and enhance your teaching palette with a spectrum of vivid hues.
Come, be a part of this nurturing experience, where professionalism meets warmth. It’s an invitation to explore, learn, and grow, surrounded by like-minded souls. Your yoga journey continues here, and we can’t wait to join you on this transformative path.
HERE’S WHAT’S ON THE SCHEDULE
- Voice therapy work
Incredible Kim Gajraj leaves no one unaffected, and she’s bringing all her wisdom, power and the many tools into this exploration of your voice. This will be something to shake up your roots, replant yourself in a new light and enhance your feeling of connection to yourself. How can we be clear and heard, if we do not know our voice?
- Loads of practice
Much of this module will be spent in the energy of meditation, in various ways. We will discover the differences between the many styles of meditation, both from experience and discussion.
We’re staying in the realm of Vinyasa Krama Yoga when we take a closer look at sequencing. This style is hugely creative, therefor putting a ton of importance on artistry with insights. We will look at sequencing to the arc as well as to the circle, working with blueprints of the goddesses and within the planes of movement. The aim is that you come out of this module highly inspired, courageous to paint outside the box and make your classes feel more authentically you.
- Subtle body philosophy
The link between the physical and the mental can very much be found with the works of mudras, bandhas and nadis – so let’s get nerdy about them three shall we?
