Chi Kung and Restorative Yoga for Yoga Teachers

An ongoing training for teachers and interested students in two of the most popular fields of activity in the yoga world today.

Simon Low & The Yoga Academy will be offering twice daily led practice with morning chi kung and yang yoga and afternoon restorative yin yoga, infused with a broad spectrum of illuminating life teachings for your evolution, education, experience and enjoyment.

In between the morning and afternoon led practice sessions, Simon and the Yoga Academy faculty will be offering yoga teachers and interested students in-depth training in Chi Kung for Yoga Practitioners and Restorative Yoga for Stress related conditions, healing, health and happiness. There will be two advanced training sessions each day offering a total of 50 hours of CPD or contact hours toward the Yoga Academy’s 500-hour Yoga Alliance US teacher training certification.

This training option is open to students and teachers of all approaches and levels to yoga.

This week is also offered as a retreat option which includes morning and afternoon classes, without the study sessions in between. Find out more about the retreat option here.

Simon Low

Simon has been teaching yoga for over 20 years and has developed a unique and personal teaching style, keeping classes diverse, focused and fun. The foundations of Simon’s yoga teaching reflect his training and ongoing studies with international teachers in many approaches to yoga, movement and therapy.

Simon first trained as a yoga teacher with Dr Larry Payne at Samata in Los Angeles, in the USA, where he lived for 7 years. After a 14 year career in the music business working as first an artistes agent in London & finally as vice-president of a&r for RCA Records US in New York, Simon went on to study and explore a wide variety of physical, energetic and spiritual practices, including Iyengar yoga, Astanga Vinyasa yoga, Okido yoga and Viniyoga, Chi Kung, The Alexander Technique, Pilates, Macrobiotics, and Chinese Medicine, effectively bringing together the essential elements of these sources of wisdom and healing into his teaching today.

Simon’s ‘Yin and Yang Yoga‘ teaching is a balanced and thorough approach to yoga practice, on and off the mat, incorporating techniques that address equally the seen physical body and the unseen energetic, mental, emotional & spiritual facets of our being. He encourages the individual to remain mindfully focused towards internal exploration as a guide to experiencing yoga as it is meant to be practiced – a personal journey toward inner peace, freedom, clarity, balance and integration, and the revealing and nurturing of the True Self – your ‘essence’.
