Teacher Training 2021

200 h Liquid Flow Yoga

with Simon Park, Janka Oeljeschlager & Marie Claussen

Hosted by Roots Yoga Hamburg

Liquid Flow Yoga holds the structure and discipline of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga, infused with the immense creativity and dance-like flow of modern Vinyasa. It is a fresh and inspired blend of classical and modern styles.

Practice dynamic asana as a movement mediation in an open system that guides the student to experience the practice as an unscripted adventure. Asanas are practiced with a keen eye to detailed physical, energetic alignment and awareness of complimentary and opposing actions. There is an artful focus on creative transitions that add elegance and uniqueness to the flow of the practice. Finally, an observation upon the subtleties of the breath upon body and mind. In this 200h yoga teacher training we utilize principles of Vinyasa Krama to create an evolutionary practice that aims to challenge, invigorate and harmonize body, mind and soul.

Learn the process of allowing the ultimate guidance to be from within. Experience the practice becoming exquisitely complete.

Innovation by weaving traditional yoga and modern science connecting the modern science of body and mind with the ancient wisdom of yoga. We honor the diversity of current lifestyles to bridge the gap between yoga, exercise science, functional training and psychology; the goal is optimal wellness for body, mind and spirit.

We integrate cutting edge information from sports science, functional training and psychology to complement the intricate teachings of the yoga tradition, to build a clear and grounded understanding of body and mind. Knowledge to share with students, for your personal practice and life: a fresh experience of yoga, fitness and wellness.

The complete practice:
asana, pranayama, meditation & philosophy

Practical, theoretical and philosophical aspects of becoming a yoga teacher. Explore essential principles that will greatly inform your practice and teaching.

Practice teaching with direct feedback from peers and guides (Simon, Janka, Marie and assists).
Understand that each teacher has their own unique voice and each student, their own individual path of practice.

Learn the proper placement of asanas in sequential and progressive order. Create intelligent, safe and creative flows that will take your students to the next level.

We will review, break down and discuss sequences taught by Simon, Janka and Marie during the training. Included will be discussion and construction of sequences based on the principles of vinyasa krama. Also, how to theme powerfully, sequencing toward peak poses, and designing your own asana flows.

Develop your ability and confidence to design and deliver creative and satisfying sequences for all levels, different types of classes and workshops.

Learn the approach towards transformational hands-on assists with physical and energetic alignment in this teacher training. Assisting is a very important element of teaching; a great compliment to good verbal cues. It requires excellent vision, precision, sensitivity, multiple points of awareness and an ego-free approach.

A skillful touch has the power to transport your students to a whole new level of awareness. What could take years for a student to understand a particular action or movement, could be done with one precise, effective, supportive assist from a well-trained teacher.

Simon has trained and assisted one of the best in the business when he spent years assisting for Shiva Rea. Janka and Marie have been learning the most precise assisting methods throughout their Jivamukti education – it is one of the moste important key course elements in the Jivamukti method.

Develop a more integrated understanding of anatomy in a yogic context to support you in deepening your personal practice and teaching skills.

We will explore bio-mechanical connections in body-reading, asana alignment and hands-on assisting in a playful, fun and comprehensive way. Learn simple, body-based somatic practices that will enrich your spectrum of movement while helping your body develop safely towards a more advanced asana practice.

Discover how all limbs of the practice come together while taking a closer look at ground and space orientation, spinal movement, major joints and their dynamics in the body and how all this blends into the three dimensional web of fascia that reflects who we are and how we move in this world.

Meet your Guides

SimonLiquid Flow
Dubbed the „Flying Nomad,“ he draws inspiration from road legends such as Jimi Hendrix who aptly stated, „the Earth is my home.”
JankaAdvanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher
Janka is an advanced certified Jivamukti teacher based in Hamburg.

Yoga helps Janka to find balance at times where she has none. It helps her to breath and flow through life and be present to experience life within all aspects and its diverse facets.

She started her yoga path many years ago and completed her Jivamukti teacher training in 2017 in India. Deeply inspired about the yoga philosophy and willing to learn more and dive deeper she completed her Jivamukti apprenticeship with her teacher Moritz Ulrich in Berlin. Janka loves a dynamic and strong asana practice combined with an intelligent sequencing.

Yoga teaches us how to deal with challenges. Yoga helps us to stay consciously in the present moment and to create a deeper and honest connection towards the present moment. It is a tool for Self-inquiry. Janka fascinates the most by the state of yoga that yoga helps to improve one’s relationship to all beings, the aspect of compassion and the dissolution of the sense of separateness.

Janka is deeply grateful for her teachers and feels blessed to be able to teach and equally sees it as an opportunity to serve, share and learn.

MarieAdvanced Certified Jivamukti Teacher
Marie is an advanced Jivamukti yoga teacher who loves to chant.

Together with Janka she opened the Roots Yoga Studio in 2019 in order to give yogis a place where they can experience the beautiful philosophy of yoga together. Marie completed the Jivamukti teacher training 2017 in Costa Rica. Accompanied by her mentor Anja Kühnel she finished her apprenticeship in the years after.

Yoga teaches Marie to be grateful for what is and not to always want more of what could be. Yoga also teaches her to be strong but also soft, courageous and kind, not just in her physical body but in her mind, heart and attitude towards herself and through compassion to all other beings.
