Famous for its castles and palaces, it is a classified UNESCO World Heritage Site. Floresta Encantada is nestled in the old town, just a few minutes’ walk from Sintra train station close to lots of restaurants, cafes etc., but still it feels like you far away from anywhere. This beautiful space is framed by glass and surrounded by trees, a truly unique location for this teacher training!

Inside Flow Training – Content
1. Connection between breath and movement in Vinyasa Flow
You will learn how to bring your breath and movement together in harmony in vinyasa flow. Graceful, honey-like movements combined with steady, even breath will allow you to dive deeper into your flow practice and tap into your true physical and emotional strength. You will also learn how to pass this on to your students for an optimal Inside Flow experience.
2. Music Theory & Teaching On Beat
You will learn how to analyze songs for your Inside Flow classes – “where is the verse?” “How long is the chorus?” “How many breaths make up the bridge?” We will take a close look at how to count the beats, create harmonious playlists, and use music in the room.
3. Creative Flow Creation – Flow Factory
How is an Inside Flow created? Which asanas make sense in which order? How do you make your transitions smoother? How is an Inside Flow structured? We will look at these questions and more, creating flows in groups. You will learn how to express yourself using Inside Flow with space for creativity within a clearly defined structure.
4. Sequencing – Class Structure
Once you’ve learned to teach on beat and how Inside Flows are structured, you’ll learn how to teach these flows to your students and how to plan and structure your Inside Flow classes. We will look at different ways to break down your sequences, which order to teach them, and how to support your students when learning how to move on beat to the music. Using the systems and didactic methods we learn here, you’ll not only create great Inside Flow classes but also transform your other yoga classes too.
5. Playlist and Storytelling
Emotion plays a key role in Inside Flow. On the one hand, you’ll learn how to use music to create specific emotional energy in the room. On the other, we’ll look at ways to incorporate emotional themes into your Inside Flow classes to pick up your students on all levels. This is where breath, movement, and music come together to create a practice for body, mind, and soul.
6. Certification and Licencing
The Inside Flow teacher training is internationally recognized and complies with American Yoga Alliance (AYA) guidelines. Once you have completed the teacher training and passed your exam, you will receive your Inside Flow certificate.
Please note: Inside Flow is a registered trademark. Those who teach Inside Flow are required to register on insideflow.com and pay an annual licensing fee.
To take part in this teacher training, you should have completed your 200-hour yoga teacher training. In individual cases, you can also take part based on experience as a group fitness trainer. However, the Inside Flow teacher training does not include detailed consideration of asana alignment, so a general knowledge of yoga is required. A strong vinyasa practice, understanding of and passion for music, and of course, creativity is beneficial.
