Evolve Yourself: Counter Flow with Marcus Leung
200-hour Yoga Alliance Accredited Teacher Training Programme
2 March – 5 May
Guest Teacher (Anatomy): Una Chan
About the Training
Evolve Yourself is a journey of self-discovery through strong, intelligent and conscious daily morning practices and special workshops. This Teacher Training programme will deeply analyse the concept of Counter Energy and provide practical tips on how to harness it to make your practice more fluid, your body more balanced in strength and flexibility, and make weight transfer during your practice more effective.
The Self-Awareness Workshops teach body work techniques that help you tune into the present and focus on getting the basics right, instead of being fixated on how a posture should look from the outside. Heightening this awareness will improve and deepen your practice so much that you can carry this knowledge off the mat and apply it to everyday life.
The Theory Workshops enhance your knowledge of Yoga Philosophy, Anatomy and Physiology. You will gain a better understanding of how yoga connects the body, mind and spirit, and how individual variations in a body call for adaptations. Eventually you will realise that we might not be built the same way, but we are on different paths to the same destination.
The Art of Teaching Workshops focus on the techniques required for sharing your own experience with others effectively so you can teach a class with confidence. They will help teacher trainees build their arsenal of tools including verbal cues, hands-on adjustments, demonstration and sequencing.
• Intention, Direction, Attention
• Actions: Assisting Action, Counter Action
• Complementary Actions: Counter Push, Counter Pull
• Energy Chain: Hugging Energy, Sustainable Energy
All matters have different rhythms of energy flow and the right amount of energy creates balance. Too much energy flow, too little, or an aberrant direction of energy flow causes imbalance. In a Counter Flow practice, we understand our intention, direction and attention, we observe the actions and balance the energy. At the end we share our energy.
Intention is an inner energy that motivates us to make a decision. Direction is the action of our body. Attention is how we focus on our aim. Through yoga practice, we open our senses and connect more readily with intention, direction and attention. However, if our direction goes awry the result changes too. In a Counter Flow practice, we do not focus on the result. We go deep within to sense the moment, which facilitates the concentration of our mind. Moreover, there is no right or wrong – the key is to achieve balance. Different actions bring about different Karma, so we cannot only look at a situation from one angle. When our energy is balanced, we are ready to share it with others.
The course is fully registered with Yoga Alliance. Completion will allow you to become a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). Upon completion of this course and all assignments, students will be awarded a certificate of participation.
