grounding | solidity | tribe
Roots. Grounding. Safety. Solidity. Nourishment. Manifestation. Tribe.
These are the core issues of MULADHARA, the root chakra. This 20-hour workshop with Sufey Chen focuses on healing our own blockages around foundational belief systems and tribal cultural patternings through yoga, movement, breathwork and a variety of techniques influenced by the worlds of psychotherapy, energy medicines and shamanism.
Each day will include a mixture of personal practice, satsang, group therapy and teaching techniques.
The teachings are delivered in an intuitive, unscheduled way, rising from whatever is alive in the group.
This training is open to all, whether for personal study and healing or as part of our Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Track to become a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500-hour level.
Advanced Yoga Teacher Training Students (must already be a RYT 200): Upon completion of this module, you are eligible to receive 20 hours towards your Advanced Yoga Teacher Training certification with Sufey Yoga. This course can also be applied towards Continuing Education Units with Yoga Alliance.
