50 Hours Yoga Wheel Teacher Training: A Journey Through Anahata with Gopal Palanisamy

Yoga Wheel is a great way to explore Heart Openers. Opening the heart has physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual benefits. The heart chakra aligns with our ability to give and receive love. When it is closed or imbalanced, we find it difficult to feel love, compassion, grace, and peace. We may instead feel anger, grief, and bitterness. Yoga wheel practice can address the emotional blockages and heal the body more effectively. Practising Heart Opening poses may help you to feel and develop empathy, have patience in frustrating moments, and find equanimity. 

 

One of the main reasons for this teacher training is to share the beautiful experience that Gopal felt when he used yoga wheel – the fun but also its nurturing of major body parts, especially the heart chakra. Safety in using this tool is essential. Gopal’s intention is to give a clear, step-by-step introduction, provide demonstrations of yoga wheel, and ensure that more people enjoy its benefits.

 

This 50-hour teacher training programme will benefit yoga practitioners who wish to advance or update their practice or teaching. It has been designed to assist practitioners in their discovery and exploration of different asanas (postures) using the yoga wheel, which enables deeper stretching and bodily extension. Participants can develop and enhance spine health, core stability, relaxed shoulders, scapula mobility, and improve their balancing, back-bending and inversion postures.

 

Whether you are a yoga practitioner, teacher, fitness instructor or sports enthusiast, come and enrich your yoga experience through yoga wheel. Graduates will receive a Yoga Alliance accredited certificate.
