The Yogic Science of Spiritual Anatomy - advanced 20-hr Yoga Trainings.

These weekend trainings are designed & taught by Cathy, a qualified Yoga Alliance E500 RYT, and also YACEP, Continued Education Provider. Teaching since 2005 in Ireland, Thailand, Bali and beyond with over 20,000 teaching hours behind her, Cathy is also a certified Transforming Cellular Healing facilitator, a film maker and a mother. 

In these certified trainings, you will be provided with an advanced in-depth study of the science behind the Chakra system, the Nadis and Kundalini and experience how that all links into the practice tools of Yantra, Mantra,  Mudra and Bandhas within practice. We will then explore the different layers of the being, the Koshas and why knowledge and experience of this system will create a profound shift in the way you teach & practice, as well as see the world. A deep dive into Yoga Nidra will also be explored in this training. After completing both of these trainings you will have deepened your understanding of how all these varied systems work together in a very experiential way rather than as abstract intellectual concept.

You will receive a beautifully crafted course manual on the first day for you to keep. The hours for these trainings can be used towards your Yoga Alliance Certification as part of your continued education and compliments all styles of yoga. Each training has 15 hours of contact tuition and then 5 hours non contact where by a final assignment paper is submitted within 2 weeks of end of training. Not all students attending are teachers and not all wish for certification, however the paper must be submitted within the allotted time frame in order to receive YACEP Certification.

Participants can expect to go on a deep spiritual journey within themselves. This training is the fruit of over 25 years of Cathy’s self-study and her close connection with many students, wisdom keepers and elders of the global conscious community. Much of the wisdom embedded in the course is a result of her many years of personal sadhana, self-purification and working with clients on a one to one basis and groups in a transformational spiritual environment.

Registration Requirements

To receive the YACEP certification, all attendees must have a minimum 200hr YTT training behind them. However, this course is also open to yogis with several year’s experience behind them & to others working as professionals in the arena of wellness; teachers, group facilitators, healers and/or body workers (for this a background in yoga is expected). The course will inspire & refine your practice & teaching, inform you how to read your students bodies in new ways, offer new themes to design your practice,  classes and workshops around and for you to continue the process of your own self-realization and journey with yoga.
