Lightness of Being – Floating, Jumpbacks and Arm Balances £25
From the moment he saw his first yoga teacher lift into a handstand, Matt has had a fascination for arm balances – he believes they bring a sense of joy, playfulness and fun exploration to the practice.
Over the years he has come to understand that the practice of arm balances is much more a question of refined technique than it is of pure strength. What might at first seem to be a challenging pose can in fact be relatively simple once you come to understand some of the basic principles and methods to practicing arm balances – techniques that Matt will explore with you in this workshop. We will use props and show you all the steps needed to be light in your practice and float. Bring a sense of humour!
Matt Gill believes that yoga is a wonderful gift for creating balance in our lives. He is a British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance accredited teacher and an assistant asana tutor on the triyoga teacher training program. By combining dynamic flowing sequences with fun and playful elements, Matt’s intention is that his classes will leave you feeling energised and uplifted.

Develop Your Authentic Voice as a Teacher of Vinyasa Flow
You’ve completed or are near to completing your yoga teacher training but now what? There are so many yoga teacher trainings pumping out yoga teachers, how do you stand out from the crowd?
If you are looking to establish yourself with confidence and wanting to connect with your authentic voice in an increasingly competitive yoga market, Good Vibes, London’s home of nurturing yet challenging vinyasa flow yoga, launches it’s one day teacher training workshop with ongoing support and mentoring to sustain you as you delve further into the world of teaching yoga.
Led by Good Vibes Founder Nahid de Belgeonne and founding Glow Yoga teachers Ruth McNeil and Clare Dobson, the day will help you to better understand the art of sequencing (vinyasa krama), to become more adept at subtle adjustments and to have a repertoire of fun and creative vinyasa flow sequences with useful modifications and progressions to play with in your teaching and for your own practice.
With a mixture of led practice, discussions, seminars and invaluable time to teach your peers and have feedback on your teaching from our team of experienced yoga teachers, this day long workshop will give you the boost you need to take your teaching to the next level and expert advice on navigating the seemingly conflicting worlds of running a business and teaching yoga to set you on the right course for success and satisfaction.
Nahid says “it’s really important to have a community of teachers that you can learn from and enjoy the support of when you are a freelancer. Coming to this course won’t give you all the answers but it will get you asking the right questions of yourself and the world you are looking to enter. We can share our ideas on how to finesse your teaching and presentation and how to find your unique voice, market yourself and pitch your skills to employers.”
Nahid and Ruth trained at the BWY accredited Yoga Academy with Simon Low, Clare trained at the BWY accredited Yoga Campus and have all gone on to further study with master teachers. They have been auditioning and training teachers for the last four years and they know what it takes to stand out.
The workshop is for qualified teachers of yoga, or student teachers, ideally with (or studying towards) a 200-hour qualification, though other paths/trainings may be accepted at the course leader’s discretion. This course is worth 7 CPD points.
Cost: £95 including all course materials.
Nahid de Belgeonne is the founder of Good Vibes and has been teaching for 8 years.
