Yogasite TT | This beautiful journey inside
Updated: Feb 10
Rolling out your mat. Making sure you have a few blocks and a blanket within arm's reach. Lighting some candles. Preparing some tea and a little snack, just in case you get hungry. Maybe even clearing some space at a nearby wall so you can go into an inverted pose if you feel the need. And of course, setting up your screen so that you're ready to join.Making it a little ritual, can really help getting into an online session of Teacher Training - whether it's an evening or a whole day.
We're not even going to go into how we miss having you in the studio. Because you already know. So, we're focussing on the fact that we feel blessed to be able to offer the Teacher Training online. To have the opportunity to share, not only from our end to yours, but also you sharing a part of your life with us.
We hope you feel healthy, loved and inspired. And we hope to see you online really soon!
on behalf of the Yogasite team,
Dorinda, Ellen & Joost
Some really cool things coming up in 2021 with Robert Boustany (we'll just mention it one more time: 72 years old, more than 50 years of experience as a yoga teacher and founder of Pralaya Yoga)!
Robert will be with us in your living room virtually every two weeks on Friday evenings. During a 'Satsang' type of gathering, he will be open to whatever questions are asked. He'll be doing what he does best; zooming (pun intended ;)) into whatever is needed at that moment. Through talks, movement, meditation and/or pranayama.
Every lecture will evolve around a subject, that relates to teaching yoga. Starting 2021 with sessions on Self-Love, Grounding and Emotional Clearing.
Friday 15th January | 19:00 - 21:00 | Lecture with Robert | Self-Love
Friday 29th January | 19:00 - 21:00 | Lecture with Robert | Grounding

- During the lockdown, you can join these nights from your own home. Once we’re allowed to open the doors to our studio again, you can join these lectures from our studio on a big screen.
- The lecture will be available as a replay for 2 weeks. If you are not able to join the live lecture, watching the replay can count towards your certificate as soon as you’ve passed the test consisting of questions about the lecture.
- From now on single sessions will count for your certification too, so it is not obligatory to buy 4 sessions at once anymore.
- Make sure you have everything you need within reach before the lecture starts. This includes a mat, two blocks, a blanket, a cup of tea and your smile. <3
Only in February we will offer a weekly Advanced Asana Practice by Robert on Thursdays from 16:30 to 18:30 CET. Attending these classes count toward your certification for both 200H & 500H and is an amazing opportunity to deepen your own practice, build more strength and flexibility and learn the art of teaching Pralaya Yoga by doing it yourself. We will notify you as soon as enrollment is open!
Especially in these special times it is important to invest in yourself, in your teachings skills and in opening your body & mind even further ... so that your light can come out and brighten up the world. We are continuously looking for improvement in order to support you in as many ways as possible. So there is more to come to enhance our Teacher Training program in 2021. We will keep you posted!
Support is the key word to describe the upcoming Teacher Training weekend with Dorinda on 23 & 24 January. The fact that it’s online is even more powerful! No matter from where you’re joining, Dorinda will be right there, in your home, guiding you and cheering you on.
Saturday 23rd January 2021 | 9u30 - 16u30 | TT day with Dorinda
Sunday 24th January 2021 | 9u30 - 16u30 | TT day with Dorinda
On Saturday, we’re kicking off with a Meridian Flow workout, followed by a deeper explanation on the workings of the meridians and how they can affect and connect certain parts of the body.
In the afternoon, Dorinda will talk about different aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine. What are the 5 elements and what do they mean? How do yoga and Chinese medicine compliment each other? What is accupuncture and what are a few important points to be aware of? And: how can the book Touch for Health be used in your practice and/or teachings?
IMPORTANT: please sign up ahead of time in order for us to be able to send you the homework assignment for this day that we’re handing out BEFORE class!
On Sunday, the morning topic will be Sungreetings. Starting off with a Sungreeting flow, moving into a little more theory on the purpose, alignment, options and breath. Dorinda will share 4 sun greetings and there might even be time go through a moon greeting…
Even in this online area - or maybe especially now - the topic of common injuries is extremely important. This is what this afternoon will be all about; how to prevent them and how to (help) solve them. Using the Pralaya principle of strengthening the weakest muscle while keeping equal pressure around the joint, you’ll bring more balance into your body. Or someone else’s body if you’re teaching already! Doing this online really will help you in your ability to guide your students into poses without having to be there to show them.
Both the Meridian Flow practice as well as the Sungreeting flow are available as a workshop if you’re not able to join for the whole day or want your friends to get to know Dorinda's magic as well. Signing up can be done (and is required) through our EverSports system.
Any questions or having trouble signing up? Send us an e-mail and we're more than happy to help you out.
