While most people headed to the beach this summer, I spent four weeks on an additional 200 hour teacher training course with the internationally respected teacher, speaker and author Max Strom - and these lovely people at triyoga - the UK's leading yoga studio and school.
It was a great pleasure to immerse myself in a month-long intensive that included an in-depth look at the Anatomy & Physiology behind yoga poses so that we can better support students with injuries or conditions.
Max Strom is an expert on Breathing and has spoken to the World Government Summit and led workshops around the world. He trained us how to offer students these breathing techniques to help release emotional stress, anxiety, unprocessed grief and depression which are physically stored in the body.
These teacher trainings bring people from all walks of life together and it was a pleasure to meet such a lovely, humourous, supportive group of people from across Europe.
And of course, a month of being with Max Strom is always such a wonderful treat.
I am now qualified to teach his Breathe to Heal method (also known as Inner Axis), so if you're interested in finding out more or booking a private session please email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Max will be back this winter to lead a series of workshops at triyoga in November. These include a special workshop on The Calibrated Man - a workshop for men. For more information visit www.triyoga.co.uk and look for Max Strom workshops.
