Reformer Core Yoga

Reformer Pilates is fast becoming the go-to class if you’re looking to strengthen and sculpt your body.

The practice has received particular press attention this year, with personalities from newlywed Megan Markle to professional World Cup football players singing its praises – join this movement of elite trainers and get the qualification to deliver effective, safe yoga and core classes on the reformer machine.

With a focus on resistance and alignment, this 20th century concept of exercise is undoubtedly challenging for both the body and the mind. The whole workout is done on a reformer machine – a sliding metal bed with springs and pullies, which adds intensity to the exercises through resistance.

As practiced today, yoga and Pilates are both celebrated for their numerous health benefits, from offering connection to the body and stress relief, to developing flexibility, strength, control and endurance. There are countless interpretations of both disciplines (and one person’s balance class is another person’s cardio) but what links them both is breath work.

This course will prepare you to teach a broad range of exercises, variations and modifications performed on the Reformer, and how to combine Mat and Reformer based workouts for increased variety and intensity.

It will develop your sequencing skills so that you are able to safely and effectively teach yoga flow on the reformer, yin on the reformer and core Pilates.

This course is limited to a maximum of 6 students and is 48 hours of training.

Carries 48 hour CPD points with yoga alliance.

Funding is available for up to 70% of course fees for successful applicants. Revive doesn’t not approve course funding and applicants must apply themselves (funding criteria applies).

BREATHWORK MASTER PRACTITIONER

BREATHWORK PRACTITIONER INSTRUCTOR TRAINING

Breathwork is the fastest growing wellness trend, and the interest keeps growing as more and more people are reaping the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of this ancient practice.

Breathwork practices aren’t new, they have been around for thousands of years – it just took the western world a minute to catch on.

Now is your opportunity to meet the increasing demand for breathwork, to do what you love which is to help people to heal, to become their best selves and to raise the collective vibration.

As a revive breathwork instructor you will learn how to combine breathwork, movement, mantra, mudras, and meditation – working with the subtle body system so that you can meet the demands of this ever-growing trend.

The course is split into 3 phases and contains but is not limited to:

Over the next 10 weeks students will attend twice weekly live online zoom sessions at 6am Tuesdays and Thursdays and a fortnightly session Saturdays 7-9am

Why in the morning? Because the morning is a special time of the day – the air is still and sweet, the birds are singing, all of nature is priming for a new day – your nervous system is built to respond to the qualities of morning in the same way – ready for renewal.
