200-H Yoga Teacher Training Mexico

Yoga teacher Training

FEB-MAR 2023, w. Nicolai Boas & Cédric Gorinas

Ready to take your practice to the next level, deepen your yoga studies, and perhaps become a yoga teacher?

So look closer here…

This year we have chosen to change the format for our next training and is going abroad doing all 200 hours in one go. We are going with this idea as we believe there is so much to be experienced, when truly setting aside the time to be in a yoga bubble with likeminded people wanting to take their practice to the next level, and become yoga teacher.

The training will give you the credentials to be able to apply to become certified with Yoga Alliance once you have completed it.

Who can join?

To take part in this training you are expected:

  1. to have been practicing yoga for a least one year on a regular basis
  2. to have a hunger for deepening your understanding of yoga
  3. to be willing to participate in the teaching, including teaching exercises where you will be asked to teach your fellow teacher trainees.

We believe vulnerability and wanting to share is key to becoming a great teacher, we encourage all to share their experiences in the training so we can all learn more and learn to hold space for each other. But you are of course always the one who decides what you wish to share and what you don’t.

NB: The TRAINING WELCOMES APPLICANTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD – (the intro and graduation are planned in Copenhagen but will be executed via Zoom if needed)

Full Schedule for the Training

Meet and Greet in Copenhagen

Date: Sunday February 12th 9.00-16.00

The training will have an introduction day in Nørrebro, Copenhagen prior to us leaving for Mexico

If you for some reason are unable to join this in person we can set up a Zoom link for you.

Here you will get to meet all the other students as well as get all the materials for the training.

On this day we will practice and get to know each other and do a few workshops that will give you a slight feel of what to expect in Mexico. For this day, please bring your own meals and snacks, as well as your water bottle. (All this information will be sent to you in an email before this date.)

24 Days in Mexico

Sunday, February 26th from 16.00 – Wednesday, March 22nd at 14.00

In Mexico we will cover topics such as, Asanas, Alignment, Anatomy, Philosophy, Personal Development, Sequencing, Meditation, Pranayama, Teaching Techniques and of course daily Practice, as well as do practicum where you will get to practice teaching too.

We see this as an opportunity to dive into your personal practice, as well as deepen your understanding of the science of yoga in this ideal serene setting. (more details on the venue will follow.)

Each day will more or less have the same basic structure. and we will have a weekly day off where you can relax and visit some of the local Mayan sites or kick back by the swimming pool if you like.

About the Teachers

Cédric Gorinas

Cédric is a full-time, Copenhagen-based yoga teacher. He has taught alignment-based yoga classes, retreats and trainings over the last ten years and has studied with internationally recognized teachers in yoga techniques, alignment, anatomy, eastern philosophy, meditation, and body-based psychotherapy. 

His teaching is informed by his passion for the interconnectedness of body, mind and heart. In Cédric’s classes, you can expect to find (or find again) a good and healthy posture, build strength and flexibility in your body as well as increase your body awareness and a sense of empowerment. He strongly believes in the wisdom of the body which knows the path to healing, personal and spiritual growth. Our work is then to align ourselves to this path and reconnect our body, mind and heart together.

Nicolai Boas

Nicolai is a technique junkie whose classes centre around body awareness, anatomy and mindful movement. His classes are build up around the wish for his student to empower themselves in their practice and in their life by employing concepts that highlight the power of an explorative practice and way of living.
His classes will often be relatively physically demanding, weather its advanced or gentle practice, yet his lyrical teaching style makes tough active body work accessible for most.

For Nicolai, through physical practice, we can get better and understanding ourselves as it becomes a tangible tool to better access our reaction patterns and our sense of self. We are able to make our complex experiences and problem areas more accessible simply by looking at the way we approach our physical practice, how we meet ourselves and how we respond to the nerve impulses.

The training will give you the credentials to be able to apply to become certified with Yoga Alliance once you have completed it.
