Fully supported by deeply knowledgable guidance, there was so much to learn that I felt we could happily spend a lifetime to absorb all of the subtitles of Kia´s and her teams´ teaching.
— Callie Mahoney, Paris France 

This new extended 4-module intensive integrates the philosophy, practice & adjustments of Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama with Applied Anatomy & Bio-mechanics, to cultivate a transformational yet sustainable practice in accordance with yogic principles.

It is designed for practitioners and teachers looking to deepen their understanding of yoga as a whole, involving all aspects – body, breath and mind. We refine our internal and physical awareness, observation skills, alignment in Asana, subtleties of breath, understanding of the philosophy of yoga, and the art of adjusting. We pay careful attention to each individual, looking at common body patterns, helping to build an intelligent, mindful practice and develop relevant teaching tools.

Module One and Two build the foundation for the entire practice and philosophy of Ashtanga, Pranayama, Kriyas, Anatomy, Biomechanics, Postural Analysis and Physiology of Breathing. Space is offered for Mysore practice where each individual is met and personal practice explored and deepened. The course offers insights into how to use and adapt hands-on adjustments to different individuals, and put anatomical knowledge into practice. A solid foundation of traditional Pranayamas and Kriyas in practice & philosophy is laid to be continued and refined as the course progresses.

Module Three and Four delve deeper into the Ashtanga sequences, philosophy and adjustments, as we look at how the principles learned apply to the Intermediate Series. This transformational sequence is closely linked to the Nervous System, as are the practices of Pranayamas and Kriyas. Hence Anatomy sessions are dedicated to uncover how our practice affects our Nervous System and all other processes in body and mind. Our understanding of Pranayamas, Kriyas and Bandha are refined, as we carefully introduce yet finer layers to their practice & philosophy.

To truly develop your individual practice and understanding, specific practices and assignments will be given between modules to support your progression.

Essentially the In-Depth Development training provides ongoing support & inspiration for your personal and / or professional development – it is not a linear and finite training. The material covered is vast and is constantly being updated so we consider it enormously beneficial to attend the IDT several times. The IDT grows a rich, diverse and highly informed community of dedicated practitioners to continuously share with and draw from.

Kia’s IDT has given me a rigorous understanding of yoga, has enhanced my confidence when teaching Ashtanga and has made my love for this amazing practice even stronger. The IDT has brought together an incredible group of generous practitioners. It has expanded my yoga family!
— Laura Gonzalez, Glasgow UK

This is a unique opportunity to work deeply with Kia, whose teachings integrate her profound knowledge of breath, pranic energy, subtle and physical anatomy with hands-on adjustments based on yogic principles.

Anatomy sessions are be held by Paula Rios Fernandez, medical doctor, researcher and dedicated Ashtanga Yoga & Pranayama practitioner. Paula brings her passion for Anatomy and Yoga to her clear and joyful teaching, with its emphasis on practical application of theory. Her classes are closely synchronised with Kia´s teachings. In this training they share their combined research of anatomy, physiology and the science and practice of yoga.

Kia will be assisted in all classes by Paula, Lise Guetta de la Brosse, and her team from Mysore Yoga Paris.

PRICE: 2900 euro if paid in one single instalment – also possible to pay in several instalments!

DETAILS & APPLICATION:  Please contact Lise de la Brosse for all details and application form

Please note that single modules are not available, the IDT includes all 4 modules.

The IDT really is an in-depth experience, such a great combination of practice, adjustment  teachings and pranayama. Since the first week I’ve applied the learnings and seen the effects of integrating all Kia’s teachings, not just in my yoga and pranayama practice, but also in my daily life, every second!
