[quote]This year at a YTT (Yoga Teacher Training) during the week dedicated to the anatomy, I met Michelle Lam a physiotherapist truly exceptional, funny and friendly. Very professionally prepared she was able with her lessons,to explain us in details a subject so complex concerning anatomy. She used practical examples performed on us (especially to those who had particular problems, or had had them) making the arguments so much easier to understand. I hope and I suggest to invite again a so good teacher, in future courses, so to continue the study with her. With to you I have learned many interesting things about the secrets of our body. Thank you very much Michelle ! ~Paola Lucia Grechi[/quote]

[quote]Had such a great time at this workshop. Michelle Lam was great at sharing her extensive knowledge in both a theoretic and practical way. Can’t wait for her next workshop in KL! ~Barbara Westerlin [/quote]

[quote]Attended Happy Spine Yoga Anatomy Workshop with Michelle Lam @Malaysia in September 2014. It was a very engaging workshop, Michelle is a fantastic presenter. Bring her back soon! ~Ng Bee Nee [/quote]

[quote]I have attended the Happy Spine Yoga Anatomy Workshop by Michelle Lam. It’s a great learning experience and useful tips, knowledge. ISpirit, thanks for organising. ~Jing Jing[/quote]

[quote] I met Michelle in my recent yoga teacher training in Vikasa. She was the anatomy teacher for the course. Michelle is very fun, lively and yet also firm in passing on her knowledge to her students. Her voice is the first thing that caught my attention. She spoke so clearly that her knowledge and expertise were passed on to me substantially. Her classes are also very lively with a lot of demonstration, participation, and guided interactions amongst students in order for us to deeply understand human anatomy as applied in yoga practice. At the same time, this promoted a closer bond between the students in the course. I felt so lucky to learn from Michelle. Her knowledge has brought significant awareness and changes in my practice as well as in my journey of teaching yoga. Thank you so much! Namaste 🙂 ~ Sam Hah[/quote]

[quote] I have participated in two Yoga Teacher Trainings (200 hour and 500 hour) with Michelle instructing the anatomy curriculum. Although I have participated in other anatomy workshops, I am always impressed by the huge amount of knowledge Michelle imparts in the period of time that she is given. There is no padding to fill in time and all her information is communicated succinctly and clearly. Armed with marker pens and her sense of humour, she takes her students on a voyage of discovery with their own bodies and others. Being a physiotherapist and physical therapist, Michelle has the comprehensive knowledge regarding anatomical issues. She has the communication skills to relay the information in an accurate but entertaining way. She educates her students to look for anatomical concerns in themselves and their students and offers ways to assist in working with and/or remedying those concerns. If a student applies him/herself with full attention to Michelle’s classes, he/she will walk away with a very comprehensive understanding of simple and complex human anatomy and its application to yoga. I have also on a number of occasions attended Michelle’s clinic as a patient and sent students to her to address non-yoga related injuries. Her communication regarding her treatments has always been very clear and succinct. This has then assisted me in building an appropriate practice for those students. I am fortunate in my journey in yoga to have been taught by Michelle Lam. The knowledge she has imparted so succinctly has assisted me in teaching students with injuries and anatomical variations. She has also taught me how to keep a keen eye on all my students to prevent yoga injuries through unsafe asana practice. Thanks Michelle! ~Kerill Ezzy [/quote]

[quote]I found the overall training to be very informative and useful. I especially liked the anatomy classes, Michelle was easy to understand and I felt that I could absorb the information. I really enjoyed this workshop. Thanks for organizing this! And a big thank you for the excellent workshop. ~ Anonymous[/quote]

[quote]More than yoga, we offer you inspiration and transformation Vikasa – evolution of yoga.[/quote]

[toggle title_open=”VIKASA STYLE” title_closed=”VIKASA STYLE” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]

Vikasa means evolution, or spiritual development, when translated from Sanskrit. The concept of “evolution of yoga” is based on the notion that everything in the world evolves constantly, including human beings. Our primary goal as a human race and that of any living organism is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate such evolution in any given individual. However, as the practice of yoga itself changes with time and place, as new techniques are being introduced, as the approach is becoming more technical, precise and scientific – any definition of it as a system or style seems to be a limitation in itself. Therefore, the “Evolution of Yoga” approach has to be seen as an ever evolving process, which anyone can be a part of, rather than a complete static system. “Evolution of Yoga” approach is based on integrating deep core work with precise alignment, combining active dynamic exercises from different disciplines with static poses from classic hatha yoga schools, alternating dynamic and static, pressure and deep relaxation, therefore exploring ha-tha or the yin and yang concept to its maximum potential, using the principle of hyper compensation. Evolution of Yoga is about challenging yourself with an ever progressing program in order to transform, optimize and balance to fine-tune your system. Core bodywork is integrated with precision breathing, through which the highest states of concentration can be experienced. As the students get more familiar with the bodywork, pranayama or breathing exercises are introduced to take the practitioner to the next level. This ultimately leads to meditation and expansion of consciousness, or – evolution!

Philosophy and spirit of yoga module This portion of the course is going to reveal more than you ever even thought there was to Yoga! You’re understanding of why, how, and what we call Yoga will be amplified. Ram will be teaching you the most important and relevant ancient texts of India that show the bigger spiritual picture of Yoga and how to live in it. Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras will be examined carefully as this masterpiece provides a clear view into the nature of Mind, self-discipline, and the path to Enlightenment. The Bhagavad Gita will be studied as a means for understanding Dhamma, or our sacred duty in the world. Sanskrit, the language of Yoga, will be explored as you hear and recite different mantras and sutras which invoke the wisdom of sages and the empowering vibrations of the Sanskrit alphabet. This bridge of spoken Sanskrit will lead you into energetic practices, really experiencing what the ancient Yogis of India have blessedly passed down to us. Pranayama, methods of controlling and moving energy, will be taught and practiced regularly, as well as group singing in the Kirtan. Pranayama can greatly increase the power of our discipline and our bodies. The Kirtan experience helps us dissolve into the heart of the human spirit, singing together as one group, no thoughts, just our voices and the music.

Anatomy and therapy of yoga module These practical based sessions, aim at introducing the Anatomy and Physiology that relate to Yoga. Basic anatomical structures and definition of terms will be introduced, followed by practical sessions on the various joints that are most prone to injuries in Yoga. It is the aim of this session to reduce the likelihood of injuries in the vertebral column, knee joint complex, hip joint, shoulder girdle and pelvic girdle. Constraints due to individual structural variations and how these would affect asana performance will also be discussed. Anatomy session will not be completed unless you can put your knowledge into practice and application. The Applied Anatomy training is focused on how to adjust clients and / or using Yoga props, based on the understanding of joint structures and the analysis of the asanas. To perfect student’s understanding, the Anatomy & Physiology session also includes the basic physiology of the respiratory system and digestive system. Understanding these internal dynamic movements leads the practitioner to a more profound energetic practice as you learn how to develop greater lung capacity and refine your awareness of Bandha.

Marketing and business of yoga module

Are you a kind, good hearted and open minded person, but sometimes intimidated by all the competition out there? I also had all these doubts when I started out… This portion of the course will teach you how to work less, and earn more. We will teach you how to network, create useful contacts, present yourself and market yourself as a teacher or future studio owner. We will give you tips on how to create teacher bios, workshop descriptions and how to get your first yoga job, or get a better job if you are already teaching an occasional class. We will teach you about pricing and marketing, and about how to grow into teaching workshops, retreats and international events! We will give you all the info you need to present yourself to the world in the appropriate manner to follow your dreams and reach your goals. We did it, so can You!!!

Yoga in action module

This program is about embarking on a journey of self-inquiry, with the support of a like-minded group, that leads to action within our community and outside world. “Action” can be many things, ranging from healing relationships with family and friends, to extending oneself to the larger community, or doing national or international work. The main intention is to understand the nature of our interdependence and our unique role in the web of life: to feel significant and as a part of this greater whole. This is the embodiment of Karma Yoga and also Dhamma, or self-less service and the fulfilling of your duty in this life. During this week, you will be guided through an intensive transformational process using vinyasa flow yoga and other tools to uncover your deepest passions and motivation. We will combine yoga asanas, meditation and visualization, experiential exercises, process work and ritual with the practical tools of communication, organizing, and collaborating with your peers. We will also introduce practical methods for each of you to begin to bring your own unique purpose into the world as action with the support and inspiration of your community. You’ll leave with a clearer sense of purpose and passion, armed with skills to help you be a more effective leader and agent of change in the world.

Konstantin Miachin – course director, founder of Vikasa Yoga (Teaching methodology and practice, Marketing and Business)

Konstantin is an international yoga teacher and founder of Vikasa Yoga studio based in Koh Samui, Thailand. He has been passionately learning, practicing, and teaching Yoga for over six years, and his passion has lead him to search out his own personal development throughout the world. This quest has brought him into contact with many different schools and masters all over the world, in places such as Rishi-kesh, Uttar Kashi, Gangotri, Kerala, Goa, Canada, Thailand, Hong Kong and Ukraine to name a few. He has completed teacher trainings in three different disciplines, including Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yoga 23 (by master Andrei Siderski) and Sivananda. Such an overwhelming wealth of knowledge has led to a deeper understanding of yoga practice as an ever evolving process – rather than a finalized system, as a tool for evolution of a human being – rather than a goal in itself. Hence, the concept of “Evolution of Yoga” was born. The concept of “evolution of yoga” is based on the notion that everything in the world evolves constantly, including human beings. Our primary goal as a human race and that of any living organism is evolution, and yoga can be seen as a tool to facilitate such evolution in any given individual. However, as the practice of yoga itself changes with time and place, as new techniques are being introduced, the approach is becoming more technical, precise and scientific, any definition of it as a system or style seems to be a limitation in itself. Therefore, the “Evolution of Yoga” approach has to be seen as an ever-evolving process, based on classical hatha yoga techniques, which anyone can be a part of, rather than a complete static system.

Swami Tattvarupananda Saraswati (Philosophy and Spirit of Yoga Module) ***July/August 2014 and November/December 2014***

Swami Tattvarupananda Saraswati was born & raised in Kerala’s culture capital, Trichur, India. As a spiritual seeker from a young age, he was fortunate to have met many different masters of repute. At the age of 18 he studied Sanskrit at the Narayana ashrama, Tapaovanam, in Trichur, which later facilitated his Vedantic studies. Keen to live life as a Yogi, Swamiji set off for the Himalayas in search of a master & underwent rigorous spiritual practices in the company of many Himalayan spiritual masters. Swamiji has devoted himself to the cause of under privileged children, founding the JJK Gurukulam orphanage in Trivandrum, Kerala, India.  Here children of dysfunctional or under privileged families are provided with shelter, food & clothing and are given traditional & academic education, giving them the opportunity to grow into responsible human beings. Swamiji is a master storyteller. He has a simple, humorous and direct way of teaching, which is much acclaimed all over the world. Nobody can miss the truth when it is unfolded traditionally and teachers from traditional lineages are rare. Swamiji is currently engaged in teaching scriptures at different locations for Sivananda Yoga Vidya Peetham in India, centres of Haus Yoga Vidya in Germany and for different spiritual groups in France, Denmark, the Czech Republic and in Japan. Dr. Karen Kow,

Not to mention, there is also the pleasant experience of the local Thai culture, agreed to be one of the most beautiful and amiable in the world. This is our Yoga Teacher Training in Koh Samui, Thailand, an awe-inspiring get away in South East Asia, agreed by many to have an energy that magnifies your intentions. Whether it be a relaxing vacation, an exhilarating adventure, or a life changing Yoga journey that has the best of both, this is the place. When you join our course you will become a part of a group of peers and teachers who are driven to improve the quality of living in the world today.

Deciding to do a Yoga Teacher Training in Asia, especially in Thailand, has some nice benefits. Thai culture is infused with Buddhism which is an offspring of the ancient Yogic philosophies. It reflects in the behavior and character of the people here who generally tend to be very friendly and polite. You’ll find lots of inspiration visiting the Thai temples and seeing people make ritual offerings all over the place. And even though most Thai’s are Buddhist, they also incorporate the Hindu deities used by the traditional Yogis of India. It’s common to see statues of Shiva, Ganesh, Saraswati, and so on. The climate here is also just right for having a vigorous and detoxifying practice.
