Brahmani Yoga Noticeboard
Namaste Yogi’s and Yogini’s
Hello Yogi's and Yogini's around the world,
As the Brahmani Drop In Centre is now closed for our last season, of course there is sadness in the air. End of an era and many of you have been an integral part of that era for many years, classes, trainings and more. It has been a joy, a creative hub, a community, and a source of much laughter and tears too!
We may be saying goodbye to the drop in centre but it's not the end of Brahmani by any means. After so many years of teacher trainings the planet is filling up with "Brahmani's" all over the place. I will continue my world tours, teaching in Europe, the US, the Middle East and returning to Goa every year for our level 2 teacher training. We will also be enjoying a strong presence in Dubai with Joanne Smallwood joining the team at Zoga Yoga, Dubai beginning with a Prenatal Teacher Training and a Restorative training in April and regualr classes starting in May.
In he meantime, I'll be popping back to the Netherlands to continue filming for Ekhart Yoga for those of you who can't make it to any of the events, you can have me in your living room as often as you like!
Also in the summer, once again, Emil Wendel and I are hosting our 6th annual Advanced Practitioners Retreat, this time in France at the beautiful Puissentut Retreat Centre 4-11 September.
For those of you wanting to do our Level 2 Teacher Training, we are holding it once again in Goa at Satsanga Retreat 3-30 of December and are already taking applications. So check out the details and don't hesitate to ask any questions.
That's a lot coming up for 2017! I hope to see some of you out there in the world and hope you are spreading the love and joy that you cultivate with your own practice!
With deep gratitude,
LITTLE YOGA ROOM - 315 hr Immersion & Yoga Teacher Training

Samstag 8.April 2017 13:00 -14:30
The 315 hour LITTLE YOGA ROOM Immersion & Teacher Training is an excellent opportunity to deepen your practice, understand a new philosophy of movement and to unfold your potential as an outstanding, inspiring Yoga Teacher.
Over a period of 12 months (10 weekend modules) you will explore the importance of natural movement within the Asana Practice and what today makes sense for us in the Yogic Philosophies and how we can integrate it into our daily lives.
Both lead Trainers, Astrid Felsenreich ERYT500+ and Carola Fassl ERYT500+, directors of LITTLE YOGA ROOM Vienna, have been studying extensively over the last 6 years with Julie Martin and Gary Carter. Their unique and inspiring way of teaching unfolds from their curiosity and passion to step out of the box of myths and dogmas in the Yoga world into exploration of both new physical and mental potentials.
Little Yoga Room is a Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance as a RYS 200. Trainees that complete the 315-hour foundational Training and have taught a minimum of 100 hr are eligible to apply for the Registered Yoga Teacher designation RYT200 with Yoga alliance.
