Green Lotus Yoga is once again running its 200 hour foundation teacher training in January 2018 at The Yoga Shala, Gort, Galway. It is also offering a 300-hour advanced training for teachers and a variety of four day CPD trainings in yoga anatomy, yin, inversions, and tantra.
Green Lotus Yoga was started by Carol Murphy in 2007. Nearly 11 years later, Carol Murphy and her team train teachers from all over the world in Spain and India annually in addition to teaching the Irish trainings in Cork and Galway. The style of yoga taught on the training is called Progressive Vinyasa, a flow form of yoga which is breath-synchronised and alignment-centered. In addition to developing practice, the foundation training focuses a lot on giving students a deeper anatomical understanding of the body in relation to yoga asana (poses ) and preparing them to teach in the classroom.
The advanced training continues to develop teacher’s practice and gives a much deeper anatomical perspective in relation to how everything is connected in the body through fascial trains, and a deeper understanding of the nervous system in relation to tension patterns, stress, and anxiety; it addresses how to work with injuries, postural dysfunctions, and the use of asana to create structural integration; it also continues to advance teaching skills and trains teachers in the art of Yin yoga.
