50h Yin Yoga Immersion

This immersion qualifies for 50 YACEP (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program) hours. With homework and online study it qualifies for 100 YACEP hours total.

Embodied Flow Yin Yoga is a gentle, integrative practice that creates a sacred space where time expands and slows down, allowing you to find your deepest sense of self. This approach combines a unique blend of yin poses, guided imagery, experiential anatomy, movement meditation, five elements of Chinese medicine, breath work, mantra and mind-body medicine practices.
Embodied Flow Yin Yoga recognizes that the way we care for ourselves, others, and the environment is interrelated. Through developing awareness and loving kindness on and off the mat, we gain a felt sense of this “interrelatedness” (yoga) and can become a more fully inhabited embodied being. In this tradition, becoming embodied is a process of returning to our innate sense of well-being where the richness and subtleties of life are deeply experienced. In this way, a life fully felt is a live fully lived.

With homework and online study you will qualify for 100 YACEP continuing education hours (please see requirements in Program Certification section below), and without homework 50 YACEP hours.

In this training we will explore and learn:

• Yin poses (basic poses and variations)
• Therapeutic applications of Embodied Flow Yin Yoga including: biomechanics, mind-body medicine, bodywork, energy medicine, emotional processing, and trauma informed approaches
• Foundations of traditional Chinese medicine: meridians, the five elements

Satu Tuomela

Satu has been teaching almost 20 years and is known for her very unique, otherworldly and authentic transmission. Borrowing the words of one of her students: " Satu`s classes leave you with "what the hell just happened?". Its beyond yoga, its a LIFE a LOVE a REALIZATION class”.

She is an experienced yoga teacher (ERYT500) with more than 10000 teaching hours under her belt, Embodied Flow™ senior teacher, a teacher training facilitator since 8 years, Creator of Embodied Yin and Co-creator of Embodied Flow™ Yin program and a Reiki Master, soon to be a movement therapist.

Satu charms with her intuitive, all seeing, facilitation and a big love for classical tantrik teachings, Shamanic roots and goddess vibe. Her exquisite use of music, harmonium playing, singing, humor, loving adjustments, Reiki and clear understanding of human body and how everybody is unique, is well known around the world.

Satu has a background in dancing (ballet) and basketball. She fell in love with yoga in her teens and started teaching almost immediately. Satu has studied two different 200h trainings in vinyasa flow and Hatha, she is immersed in Anusara yoga, continued also with two advanced trainings (300h), the latest with her main, and very loved, pioneering teachers Scott Lyons and Tara Judelle, And has studied and taught yin yoga since 2007.

Satu used to study with Tiffany Cruikshank and has also participated in the offerings of Elena Brower. She is grateful for the amazing knowledge of foundational anatomy that Tiffany taught her and the courage to face her fears and "kicks in the butt" that Elena offered so generously.

Satu has had the privilege to teach and offer workshops, retreats, trainings and classes around the world from Hawaii to Bali. She mainly teaches in Europe and is based in Stockholm.

Satu’s current main teachers are Sally Kempton and Christopher Wallis ( nondual Tantra and meditation) and, of course, Tara and Scott.

In 2013 Satu founded Pranama (yoga studio) with couple of other teacher friends. It is a collective of yoga teachers dedicated to giving back and to offering Yoga for all! Now the Helsinki Studio is one of the most popular yoga studios in Finland. Its the first ever, and only, donation based studio, where people pay directly to the teacher teaching the class, not the studio. At least in Finland.

Now the mission has grown into Pranama in Stockholm (www.pranama.yoga)
