Aerialjooga synttärit lapsille

Haussa super hauskat ja erilaiset synttärit lapsellesi? Aerialjooga synttärit ovat juuri sitä ja meillä on nauraminen ehdottomasti sallittua!

  • Aerialjooga synttärit alkavat leikeillä ja pariharjoittelulla, jotka toimivat myös hyvänä lämmittelynä. Tämän jälkeen lapset opettelevat liinoihin kiipeämistä, turvallista ylösalaisin roikkumista ja perus aerialjoogan asentoja sekä liikesarjoja. Ohjatun toiminnan kesto 1h.
  • Synttäreille voitte tuoda omia tarjottavia, joita voi syödä ohjatun toiminnan jälkeen olevalla vapaa-ajalla. Tarjoiluja ei voi valitettavasti tilata meiltä. 
  • Suosittelemme aerialjooga synttäreitä 10 ikävuodesta eteenpäin. Mukaan mahtuu max. 12 lasta. Voimme järjestää juhlat myös 7-9 vuotiaille, mutta tässä tapauksessa ryhmäkoon tulee olla pienempi max.6 lasta
  • Aikaisempaa kokemusta aerial joogasta tai akrobatiasta ei tarvita!
  • Synttäreiden kokonaiskesto on siis puolitoista tuntia, josta 1h ohjattua aerial joogaa ja loppu 30 minuuttia vapaata olemista studiossa ja herkkujen syömistä! Vapaa-aikana aerial liinoissa roikkuminen mukana olevien aikuisten vastuulla, ohjaaja ei ole silloin enää valvomassa. 

 

VARAAMINEN: Voit varata syntymäpäivät puhelimitse tai sähköpostilla. 

VASTUUVAPAUSLOMAKE: Kaikilta aerialjooga synttäreille osallistuvilta vaaditaan huoltajan allekirjoittama vastuuvapauslomake.

yin jooga teacher training

Learn to teach the profound practice of yin yoga with this 50 Hour Yoga Alliance program facilitated by Leta LaVigne of yogaROCKS.

• The Philosophy and Practice of Yin Yoga
• Yoga asanas and variations, including use of props and the wall
• Physical Anatomy, including exploration of skeletal variation
• Energetic Anatomy
• Sequencing, facilitation and how to theme
• Teaching Practicum
• Yoga Philosophy: The 8 Limb Path and Introduction to Meditation
• Hands on adjustments and assisted yin yoga
• A certificate of completion
• 50 hours of continuing education with Yoga Alliance or 50 hours applied to yogaROCKS 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Certification Program
 
This foundational training will teach you to safely and effectively guide students in the practice of yin yoga. We will explore the archetypal pose families in depth --- learning to analyze what is going on in terms of muscles and joints in each pose, and, importantly, in each individual's body. We will also explore beyond the physical to energetic theories and to the level of mind and emotions, learning to take a personalized, mindful and holistic approach to the practice.
 
Leta LaVigne (E-RYT 500) is the founder of yogaROCKS studios in Lahti and one of Finland's senior yin yoga teachers. She has been a full time yoga teacher since 2008 and has immersed herself in the practice and teaching of yin yoga since 2010.  Leta has been greatly influenced by studies with Yin Yoga pioneer Paul Grilley, with whom she has studied regularly with for over a decade. As a devoted Grilley student, she teaches yin with a functional approach rather than relying on alignment rules based on how a pose should look. A functional approach stresses the “why” as much as the “how,” and encourages students to customize their practice for their unique body. It builds confidence in the individual to proceed on the yogic path verified by their own experience, and acts as a platform from which a teacher can facilitate greater presence/awareness, healing and peace. As an experienced teacher trainer who still teaches full time herself, Leta infuses her trainings with humor, warmth, and a wealth of practical experience.  She has a love of helping new teachers identify and develop their unique strengths.
 
Who is this training for?
This program is open to anyone who wishes to dive deeper into the practice and offering of yin yoga....current teachers who wish to broaden their skill set (yes! this program can be counted as Yoga Alliance continuing education hours) or dedicated practitioners who want "more" but may not be sure about teaching yet.
This 50 hour module is also a requirement for yogaROCKS 200 hour certification program -- For more information about the 200 hour program, contact Leta or read here.

Previous students have said:
 
"Hyvät ystävät - jos harkitsette Yin-joogan syventävää koulutusta, suosittelen tosi lämpimästi Leta-An LaVignen funktionaalisen lähestymistavan kurssia. Hinta-laatusuhde on huikea ja kurssin anti on 100% käyttökelpoista opetuksessa. Olen tosi tyytyväinen."
- Nina Pyykkönen
 
"I loved everything! The down-to-earthness about functionality yet keeping in mind that yoga is yoga and not just fashionable streching. Leta has so much experience and a way of verbalizing it to get to the core of the essentials. It was amazing to have such a well constructed course and proper manual, all put together for us. On a meta level, it was good to learn about teaching, too: Leta really knows how to teach, both yoga and yoga teachers! The atmosphere and rapport was so welcoming and warm that a real sense of belonging, trust and companionship was quickly established - it was good we took time for the introductions and mixed up the teaching groups for everybody to interact with each other. I have experienced trainings that have not felt like value for money (outside of the yoga scene as well), but this course had the sense of added value, which is quite unique these days. And that stems from Leta's personal skills and spirit!"
- Katja Heikkiläinen
 
"Letan yinjoogan opettajakoulutus on aivan huippu ja sopi juuri minun tarpeisiini ammatillista lisäkoulutusta kaivanneena opettajana. 
Kurssi oli aikataulultaan sopivan tiivis, mutta kaikki olennainen käytiin läpi havainnollistavien esimerkkien ja tehtävien kautta. Erityisesti pidin käytännönläheisestä otteesta yinin opettamiseen ja tosielämän opetustilanteisiin. Koulutuksessa oli mukana riittävästi joogan yleistä teoriaa, asentojen anatomiaa ja yinjoogan toimintaperiaatteita helposti sisäistettävällä tavalla. Pääpaino oli kuitenkin käytännön harjoitteissa ja  tätä arvostin todella paljon. Opetusmanuaali sisältää paljon asiaa, johon voi myöhemminkin tarpeen tullen palata. Leta luo ympärilleen avoimen, kannustavan ja välittömän ilmapiirin, jossa kaikkien on helppo keskustella ja olla omia itsejään. Yhteishenki oli mahtava! Suosittelen lämpimästi tätä koulutusta kaikille yinjoogasta kiinnostuneille harjoittelijoille ja opettajille! Tästä sai todella hyvät eväät arkipäivän opetustilanteisiin, ammattitaidon kehittämiseen ja tuntisisältöjen suunnitteluun!"
- Teija Maila
 
"I recommend this training. A full-on five hearts! It provides you with a useful method on how to approach Yin Yoga as a whole, which I found to be priceless timewise and focus-wise as the diverse information out there can feel a bit overwhelming to get a grip on. The training also sparked my enthusiasm to learn more, to dive into the books and other sources that were recommended. The training encouraged to embrace our differences and to find comfort to start exploring ways to bring authenticity into the practice. Leta is such a sweet and thoughtful teacher. She is really considerate in her languaging. A true artist in the way she uses words. She inspires me to be more skillful and mindful in how I communicate. Her constructive feedback feels like it's a realization of your own and which you want to remember next time. The training welcomes you as you are, it helps you to open up and to further explore the aspects of who you truly are. Thank you."
- Jaana Ritari
 
"Leta is a very approachable and happy person, who is always eager to assist. Leta is a student of Paul Grilley's, so the line to the source of Yin Yoga is a straight one. This also means there is a lot of anatomy and physiology involved, and it is all directly applied to Yin Yoga. It is a very pragmatic package and helps understanding the whole concept of Yin Yoga and how it affects the human body. Much of the time is spent learning that, but there is also a segment about the more esoteric aspects of any Yoga, including chakras, which makes this training very complete and all-rounded. The class structure is well-defined with certain key components to be included about every asana, which makes teaching Yin Yoga very logical and whole." 
- Mika Perkiömäki M.Ed in Exercise Science

200 HOUR RYT  - Become a Certified Yoga Teacher

Our original 200 Hour Yoga Alliance program is a deep dive into the many layers of yoga -- a comprehensive training that will prepare you with all the fundamentals to teach both yin yoga and "yang" yoga (hatha/vinyasa flow), as you develop your own powerful and unique voice. 

What Makes YogaROCKS 200 Hour Teacher Training Unique?

  • Multidimensional: Our program gives you a diversity of teaching tools and modalities instead of limiting you to one particular style or sequence.  This widens the range of possibilities for you as a facilitator, and deepens your understanding and experience of the range of transformative benefits of yoga practice.
  • Learn to truly facilitate: You will not be memorizing and reciting rules and sequences. Instead, we emphasize thorough understanding of the foundations and mastery of basic teaching skills, so that you can successfully create your own classes and offer informed, intelligent, skillful and safe instruction from a place of presence and confidence. 
  • Find Yourself: Our mission is to help you identify and develop your own style, so you can grow your career from a deep sense of clarity about your unique strengths and purpose.
  • Small Group Size:  We maintain small group sizes so that each individual is truly supported and a real community is developed.  These small group sizes also allow for a strong practicum element, so that each teacher gets to teach multiple yoga classes throughout the training.

200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training (joogaopettajakoulutus RYT 200)

Joogaopettajakoulutus Lahdessa!

Are you ready to become a certified yoga teacher? Our 200 Hour Yoga Alliance program is a deep dive into the many layers of yoga and self. It is a comprehensive training that will give you the tools to create and facilitate inspiring classes in yin yoga, hatha and vinyasa flow, while taking you on an empowering journey of personal growth.

matti crop

Immerse yourself in practice.  Build a knowledge base of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, but also learn to foster space for embodiment - the present moment experiencing of yourself and the free flow of innate wisdom within.  You will explore a wide range of yogic tools from several traditions, and learn to enrich the transformative potential of your teaching with techniques from positive psychology.  Learn about the history, ideas, and evolution of this great wisdom tradition, and gain confidence in articulating and sharing the teachings of yoga in your own authentic voice. 

Our approach is non-dogmatic.  As you evolve your personal practice and expand your understanding, we invite you to engage with questions like: how does this practice support me to show up fully in my life? What is my biggest vision for the kind of teacher I want to be?  What is the sense of purpose that inspires me?  Our belief is that nobody can share the practice of yoga quite like you.  We are here to give you the tools, foster the skills, and support you in alchemizing it all through your own direct experience into powerful offerings.

The 200 hour training consists of four 50 hour modules, all of which include daily practice, lecture, workshop and practicum.  All modules must be taken in order to complete the 200 hour certification, which allows you to register with Yoga Alliance. Each module may also be taken independently for continuing education hours or according to your own personal interests.  Unlimited access to yogaROCKS studio classes from February 1, 2023 – June 1, 2023 is included in the price when you register for the full training.

In 2022, lead teacher and yogaROCKS founder Leta LaVigne will be joined on the teaching staff by well-known scholar, author, educator and podcast host Matti Rautaniemi, and Eeva Sofia Ratalahti, a long-time yogaROCKS instructor, NLP Trainer and Life Coach.  Please note, the training will in English (please see FAQS below for more detailed information).

FAQS

Who can apply for the 200 hour training?

Applicants should have a minimum of 1 year dedicated yoga practice.

What is the daily timetable?

The daily hours are 9:30-17:30

What is the cancellation policy?

With the current COVID situation, we are all having to be flexible. If the training is cancelled all or in part, or rescheduled, for example due to force majeure conditions imposed by the epidemic, you may choose to be refunded in full for all unattended modules or to attend the same module/s with us at a future date.If you cancel more than 1 month before the start date of the training, you are entitled to a full refund minus a 50€ administration fee.If you cancel less than 1 month before the start of the training (for reason other than illness with doctor's certification) the fees are non-refundable but you may attend the same module/s you have paid for in the future.If you become ill during one of the modules and cannot attend part of the training, we will ensure that you can make up the hours in order to complete the program.

Can I pay the training in parts?

Yes, we are flexible – you can divide the payments up however you like as long as payment is made in full before the start date of the 200 hours.  If you need more time, please reach out to Leta individually to create a payment schedule.

I’m not sure about the language.  Do I need to teach in English?

While the main language of the training is English, the majority of participants in yogaROCKS’s trainings in the past have been Finnish speaking.  You do not need to teach in English.  All practicum can be done in Finnish or English.  Homework can be completed in Finnish or English.  Discussion and questions can come in Finnish or English.  When it is necessary, there is usually someone who can translate.  Although facilitators Matti Rautaniemi and Eeva Ratalahti will be teaching in English for this course, they are native Finnish speakers and can clarify in Finnish if necessary. Leta LaVigne does understand a good degree of Finnish as well. 

If I have previously taken part in 50 hours of yin yoga teacher training with you and now I want to complete the rest of the 200 hours, is that possible?

Yes.  If you have previously taken the 50 hour course with us, you can take the other 3 modules to complete the 200 hour certification.  To calculate the price, simply subtract the amount that you paid previously for your 50 hour program from the 200 hour training price.  If you completed the 50 hours of yin previously and want to take it again along with the other 3 modules, contact Leta to ask about the discount for repeating.

What if I’m only interested in Yin Yoga or Vinyasa Flow?

Do your research and choose a training that resonates with you and will support your desired outcomes.  That being said – there is SO MUCH VALUE and learning in all of these modules that translates to teaching in general.  If you are a vinyasa flow teacher, the yin module is going to give you a basic and necessary understanding of anatomy so that whatever pose, whether eka pada galvasana or a yin half saddle, you are able to break the asana down in terms of the actions at each joint segment.  This in turn is going to greatly assist you in sequencing intelligently in more dynamic classes.  Yin is going to give you all the juicy, restorative and relaxing bits and the ability to communicate with a softer energy that will also valuable in a well balanced flow class.  If you are thinking that you only want to teach yin yoga, certainly the hatha and history modules are very relevant to you, but consider also that “vinyasa” yoga can be offered many different ways and having a comfort level with guiding dynamic movement can only be an asset – it may be that the vinyasa module challenges you physically in terms of the intensity of the practice, but as always stepping on your mat is an exercise in meeting yourself as you are – you can meet the practice at your own speed.  In essence, we consider all of this to be valuable education for a well-rounded teacher that only extends the possibilities for you in terms of what you can go out and teach.

If I only take one module, am I certified to teach?  For example, if I only take the 50 hour yin yoga module, can I start teaching yin yoga?

Technically there is no certification that can "allow" you to teach yoga or yin yoga.  There is nothing to stop you from teaching now. Yoga, Yin yoga, hatha yoga, vinyasa flow … these are not registered trademarks and depending where you are in the world, “certification” and what type of certification you have may be more or less important to employers.

200 hour certification is a standard created by Yoga Alliance for their first tier of registry. The "R" stands for registered, which means someone has completed a training with a school that meets certain standards  (and is registered with Yoga Alliance – like yogaROCKS) and then that individual pays dues to register themselves with Yoga Alliance. If you complete the whole 200 hour program with us, you can then register yourself with Yoga Alliance.  Our 200 hour certification is an accepted base standard for yoga teachers that is accepted internationally.

Content-wise you will learn everything you need in the 50 hour yin module to start teaching yin. The training is thorough.  You also receive a certificate of participation that details what you’ve studied.  These 50 hours can also be counted as required annual continuing education hours if you happen to already pay registration dues with Yoga Alliance. Whether an employer will require more than the 50 hour certificate or 200 hour registration to start teaching, we cannot say.  Only share that at our studio (operating 10+ years in Finland) we are primarily interested in someone's ability rather than credentials and have hired teachers who have only been through our 50 hour training.  Much depends on an individual’s background … how long have you been practicing yoga? Do you have experience standing in front and holding the space?
