Green Lotus Yoga Teacher Training school was established in 2007 by Carol Murphy. Carol is teaching yoga 22 years and training teachers in Ireland and internationally for the past 11 years. The style of asana taught on the trainings is “Progressive Vinyasa”– a style of vinyasa that is flowing, creative and intelligent. It is called “progressive” because it incorporates modern vinyasa approaches and also because the sequencing progresses students forward in their development, using an intelligence based on cutting edge knowledge of yoga anatomy and universal principles of alignment. Progressive Vinyasa also embraces the wisdom of subtle energetics and incorporates pranayama techniques to strengthen and nourish the inner body and the mind. Even though this approach to vinyasa is in many respects western in orientation, it is infused with the wisdom of Patanjali, Vedic and Tanrtic philosophies, touching the heart of yoga.
"Carol has much knowledge in anatomy, alignment and yoga philosophy. All in all, I found the 200 hr Vinyasa TTC to cover a broad spectrum of important and interesting topics, for which I will always be grateful."
What an experience! Carol guided me to break boundaries - both mental and physical. Her teaching voice is compassionate yet authoritative, with the right amount of fun thrown in. She always strive to be "heart-ful" in her teaching ... Iook her up. It may very well be the best thing you ever did. For me, it's definitely up there.
"Thanks again for a wonderful month of growth, inspiration and transformation, and all the love and energy that you give to your teaching!"
"Thank you Carol and thank you for your wonderful teacher training course. After finishing the course I felt I had grown so much physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
You enabled me to find strengths that I had forgotten. "
"This year I spent almost 2 months in Rishikesh, India where I took my 300hr training. There I realized what a strong yoga foundation you have given me ..... I still come back to your teachings."
"During the course, from a physio point of view too, I always really loved, trusted and respected the work and way you brought and presented the teachings.”
“Be prepared for a life changing experience. My training was a very personal journey which has given me the tools to deal with anything life throws at me and the ability to move chaos into order."
“The Art of Teaching Yoga” is a manual for yoga teacher and trainees. This 169 page book offers clear and concise detail outlining yoga instruction, alignment details, common weaknesses teachers need to look out for in the classroom, adjustments and more on a variety of asanas from beginners to advanced. There is also a large section on “Teaching Skills” covering topics such as the importance of observation and demonstration, sequencing, structuring, pacing and principles of vinyasa.
This manual is used on all of the Green Lotus Yoga Teacher Trainings. It is also becoming popular with teachers who have trained in other schools who wish to deepen their knowledge of all aspects of teaching yoga. Many students say it has become their bible for class planning and reference.
A must for teachers and trainees who would like to expand their knowledge of yoga and gain more confidence in their teaching skills.
