5-DAY VINYASA FLOW TRAINING

This 5-day immersion is aimed at refining and deepening the skills to teach safe and enriching vinyasa flow yoga. The course will explore sequencing templates and ideas for how to structure sound, creative classes, as well as take an in-depth look at adjusting and the energetics of touch. The Immersion will also include segments on overall safety; using effective language; working with individual students’ needs while holding collective space and integrating yogic philosophies and themes.

Class time will be highly experiential and learning based on an interactive and participatory model of inquiry and exploration. Participants will work toward embodying their practice so that their experiences can be articulated and shared with students.

MIMI KUO-DEEMER

Mimi has been a student of yoga since 1995 and an avid lover of dance since 1978, when her mother put her in ballet school for walking with turned-in toe.

Today, she is a senior yoga, qigong and meditation teacher at triyoga, where she leads classes, immersions and teacher trainings. Her two main teachers in the yoga world, Erich Schiffmann and Donna Farhi, continually humble her with the idea that yoga is the art of living, listening, and learning to embody a deeply spiritual tradition. Mimi is certified by the Mindfulness Training Institute to teach mindfulness. Mimi champions meditation as the answer to just about all of life’s most pressing questions.

In 2002, she co-founded Yoga Yard, Beijing’s first and leading yoga centre. She is the author of two books: Qigong and the Tai Chi Axis: Nourishing Practices for Body, Mind and Spirit (Orion Spring 2018), and Xiu Yang: Self-cultivation for a Happier, Healthier and Balanced Life (Orion Spring 2019). She has also released many online videos and programmes for New Shoot Pictures and Movement for Modern Life. For more information see www.mkdeemer.com
