3 Day Somatics Yoga Teacher's Retreat, UK

This teacher training retreat is open to yoga teachers, yoga therapists and anyone else interested with at least a year’s yoga experience (although you will need to be a qualified teacher to continue the full module, see below). 


Whether you simply need the therapeutic effects of a weekend of deeply nourishing Somatic practice or want to take this into your teaching, this will be a retreat of deep connection, self-compassionate practices and embodied awareness. 


The course can be taken simply for 15 hrs CPD experience and understanding of Somatic practice or as a more complete module with after-study, teaching skills and sequencing days, worksheets and an assessment for how this can be integrated into yoga teaching – taking it to a total 60 CPD hours as the Teaching Therapeutic Somatics course.


The teachings for the weekend will be by their nature fluid, explorative, restorative, meditative and influenced by Feldenkrais, Qi Gong and other practices that step away from an emphasis on reaching particular forms or goals within asana. 


Through embodied awareness, there will be an emphasis on recognising and offering kind attention to the habits and expectations you may spend your time retreading in your work and personal lives. 

For each session, there will be a short introduction and time for discussion and Q&A at the end. Part of the full module is an online course that includes videos of the practices on the retreat (taught and with a teacher’s commentary) that can be purchased after, either to complete the full course or simply for your own practice and learning.


The program will include daily yoga sessions, your food and accommodations.
