During this extended weekend program, Amma Heike will offer her extensive knowledge, enthusiasm and love for Partner Yoga, enhanced by her joyful demeanor. You will directly experience the benefits of Partner Yoga and learn the following three approaches on how to teach it: 1) parallel, where both practice the same posture at the same time, 2) complemented, where both practice a different asana, which complements the other and 3) supported, where one partner is in the posture, receiving support, correction and assistance from the other.
Designed for both Yoga teachers and students, this is the ideal opportunity to enrich your Yoga Teaching as well as your personal practice. Open the door to a new realm in Hatha Yoga and experience Yoga with new depth and dynamics.
Through the mindful presence and support of a Yoga Partner you can be deeply moved physically, emotionally, as well as spiritually. Discover, experience the benefits of and learn how to teach Partner Yoga.
Knowing how to teach Partner Yoga is a wonderful extension to your skills. It offers valuable tools on how to incorporate partner practices into general Yoga classes, couples’ retreats and workshops, family camps, mother-and-daughter weekend workshops, and much more. It expands your teaching repertoire to include offering specialized Partner Yoga classes and workshops. The clear and specific hands-on corrections play an important part in Partner Yoga and are an special asset in supporting your own asanas as well as your students’ practice.
With Partner Yoga you and your students can:
• Experience how the soothing, gentle support of a partner enables you to go beyond your supposed physical limits, literally melting into the posture
• Feel how the mindful presence of a Yoga Partner uplifts your spirit and touches your soul
• Make a connections to each other’s essence within honoring each other’s wisdom and wholeness
• Create the opportunity for an encounter that makes you aware of the love and respect that you have for one another
• Explore, how observing your responses while practicing, can help you open to relationships in every day life

Her humor and childlike unselfconciousness allows an immediate connection and touches many hearts instantly.
