YOGA THERAPY FOUNDATION
A holistic approach to One-on-One teaching
Momentum Regeneration® 100h Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
for experienced yoga teachers and health professionals
holistic - individual - integrative
Who we are
Momentum Regeneration® is a continually evolving integrative and open minded approach to Yoga based on Patanjali's Yogasūtra. This program is led by Dr. Günter Niessen (MD) and Katharina Lehman, a licensed health professional for psychotherapy. With support by our team (Link) of teachers with expertise in their respective fields we incorporate modern medicine, psychology and common sense.
Based on many years of experience with the application of therapeutic yoga in One-on-One sessions for clients with a wide range of difficulties, we are dedicated to creating individual yoga practices that facilitate wellbeing and regeneration in an
accessible and sustainable way.
What you will learn
This training is an opportunity to fine-tune your teaching skills for individual lessons as well as promoting choice and agency for your students in group classes.
You will learn new powerful and practical ways to support individual needs, welcoming everybody with all levels of experience. You will acquire a solid foundation of knowledge about common ailments and the specific application of yogic practices. The focus lies on being able to provide support, whether someone is suffering from a specific problem or wishes to pursue certain personal aspirations, by helping them cultivate an intuition in their own body, create deeper self-awareness, bring balance and integrate self-care into their daily life.
Come as you are and bring everything with you that seems worthy to be viewed in a new light. (Katharina Lehman)
Individual lessons are a co-creation between teacher and student based on moment-to-moment awareness, integrating ethics, movement, breathing and meditation with intra- and interpersonal reflection.
Conducting One-on-One sessions requires the ability to creatively choose beneficial postures and āsana sequences to support individual agility and self-efficacy. We design a practice according to the momentary needs, long-term intention and current disposition, desires and strengths of the student. As teachers we help to establish a connection to the body, illuminating its uniqueness. A regular and viable practice enhances ease of movement, overall functional strength, greater range of motion and helps improve coordination and balance. Befriending the rhythmic flow of breath and merging it with movement, guided breathing practices, meditative visualizations and bhāvana (affirmation) encourage focus and calm the fluctuations of the mind. Ultimately we aim to integrate one's unique resources with an emphasis on replenishment and renewal which is linking the practice with day to day life.
