The modules can also be taken as independent  in depth studies and continuous education for therapists and yoga teachers, or as one of three modules in the 200 hours Mindful Yoga Teacher Training.

There are three individual and independent modules in this training. Module 2 is a deepening of module 1 and cannot be taken without completion of module 1. Modules (1&2) and 3 can be taken in chosen order.

Module 1: Mindful Restorative Yoga Foundations – 50 hours

This training focuses on learning basic Mindfulness skills – where breath and body awareness is are the main method of healing. You will learn the basic restorative postures and how to teach these in a class setting. We will talk about relaxation and the important role of the nervous system.

Module 2: Mindful Restorative Yoga Therapy – 50 hours

(precedes Module 1)

Module 2 builds on module 1 and dives into the effect of Mindful Restorative yoga ons stress and trauma in the framework of breath, relaxation and awareness. In ths module we will learn how to work with individuals. We will dive into The Poyvagal Theory and get practical tools to help our students and clients. We will work in depth with the body scan as a Mindfulness tool too gently rebuild a safe relationship with our bodies.

Module 3: Mindful Yoga Movement – 100 hours

(includes a 1 week retreat in Mallorca or Scandinavia)

In this training you will learn how to teach yoga with Mindfulness as a method. In theory it is possible to use this method on any style of movement or yoga style. But in this module you will learn how strength, stretching and slow movement is beneficial as a formal practice. It strengthens our vestibular- and nervous system. It creates a mapping of our nervous system with the whole of our bodies. We will deepen the practice of Self-Compassion to build a complete foundation for Mindfulness. We will also dive into the philosophy that Mindful yoga builds upon.
