Yogateacher Training Weekend – Thoughts, experiences and guided meditation

Last weekend I had my sixth Yogateacher Training Weekend from overall 14. The weekend had the focus on sitting asanas and the Vijñāna Bhairava. We started at Friday in the evening with yoga practice and meditation.

The yoga practice at Friday evening was soft and with focus on relaxation and sitting asanas. Afterwards we did 30min of meditation practice inspired by the Vijñāna Bhairava.

Following sitting asanas we focused on this weekend:

  • Vajrasana
  • Dandasana
  • Sukasana
  • Malasana
  • Baddha Konasana
  • Gomukhasana
  • Virasana
  • (Half) Lotus Pose

At Saturday and Sunday we were in a park. Due to Corona at my yoga school just 6 pupils are allowed in the room. Because of the good weather my teacher decided to do the training in nature. This was a very good idea.

At Saturday we started in the morning with a long and intense yoga practice. Afterwards we talked about anatomy especially regarding sitting asanas. After a lunch break we did a philosophical talk on the Vijñāna Bhairava. We were divided into groups and every group got questions which were discussed. One question was to develop a meditation based on the Vijñāna Bhairava. This question I liked the most and I decided to provide my meditation on the blog as part of my meditation series.

On Sunday we started again with a longer and intense yoga practice. After a short breakfast break we talked about the results we got in the groups on the Vijñāna Bhairava and a few had to guide their meditation to the group. So we had very different meditations, with music, with visualization and with focusing at the sky.

Really a lovely and interesting weekend.
