                                               Creative - Inspiring - Challenging

Creative because we teachers are Artists, Inspiring because we are guides on the path to finding peace within uncertainty,
Challenging because growth is offered to those striving to flow outside of their comfort zone… Simply!

TEACHING CERTIFICATION 

The SPACE & FLOW Teaching Certification is a programme which offers training in the method of S&F Yoga, its practice tools and teaching techniques, and an insight into how to help expand kinaesthetic awareness in the general population through a movement-based Yoga practice.

The programme is practice-driven and led by S&F founder Raphan Kebe who will be present throughout the training. It consists of an in-person two-week intensive on the Spanish island of Mallorca followed by six monthly Saturdays online, alongside individual online study, teaching practicums, and guided homework with journaling

Furthermore, every teacher will receive six (6) individual mentoring sessions (one per month) with Raphan and access to an online portal containing all learning materials, sequence videos, and the video recordings of each interactive sessions taking place online and most of those from the retreat in Mallorca. The portal will also offer a place for on-going discussions and Q&A's, with both Raphan and fellow teachers, about self practice, individual teaching organisation, and the on-going development of one’s teaching style and voice within the realm of Space & Flow. 

The S&F teacher training programme is unique in its emphasis on the organisational context of movement and on the reinforcing language and mindset within the field of a yoga practice. This teaching certification is for those looking to embody and share an approach to movement that is both creative and collective in spirit and which manages to remain individual in practice.

The course is scheduled to last 7 months, from August 2022 to March 2023. (see dates below)

Following successful completion of the programme participants will be able to advertise themselves as Space & Flow Yoga™ teachers and offer dedicated S&F Yoga and movement classes.

This teacher training will have a maximum of 12 participants, as such early application is advised. Please note that preference will be given to those who have taken the SATI Mentoring course.

Please fill out the form at the bottom of this page to register your interest and/or contact Raphan to schedule a short Zoom conversation.

PATH TO QUALIFICATION

 

To qualify as a SPACE & FLOW teacher you will need to be able to:

Teach, utilise, and adapt the S&F dynamic warm up to fit the requirements of classes of various levels.

• Demonstrate, break down, scale up/down a minimum of 9 S&F repertoire sequences + 3 sequences you have created using the various S&F tools and principles. 

• Create various short sequences of movements - "Set ups" - that follow a thread and serve to cultivate a positive and gradual learning and teaching experience for yourself and others.

• Work towards cultivating healthy relationships with yourself (mind & body), your students, and the communities you choose to serve using the practice. 

• Initiate for and by yourself regular periods of study and self practice.

Attendance

Attendance to the whole programme - intensive and online - is required in order to graduate. 


Fees

All fees will need to have been paid in full for graduation to take place and for the SPACE & FLOW teaching diploma to be awarded.

 

REQUIREMENTS

 

Whilst candidates would benefit from having a recognised Yoga teaching qualification, or an equivalent professional certification in the realm of dance, personal training, or movement coaching, the only 3 requirements are as follows:

  • Have a physical movement and postural practice.
  • Be willing and able to commit to guided practices AND teaching, both of which will require to try things out, to practice and practice-teaching outside of one's comfort zone, to fuck it up, to shrug it off, and to try again… simply. 
  • Have the maturity - to ask when in doubt - to push with discipline when one can not proceed with grace - to appreciate that the refinement of our questions often contains the answers, and - to choose to take on the responsibility for one’s own mental and physical health.

 

ALL of the following are needed for the course

- A camera/phone you can use to film and document your practice and sequences

- A Youtube account - for the 'unlisted' (not public) videos you will be required to send in for feedback

- A Gymboss miniMAX Interval Timer (UK) (France)

For the online sessions via Zoom ALL of the following are also needed

- A laptop or computer

- A stable internet connection; do invest in an ethernet cable

- A bluetooth headset like THIS

Lastly, whilst it is not a requirement to want to become a full-time teacher please understand that this course is to enable people to actually teach SPACE & FLOW, and not just deepen their practice through the means of the method. As such everyone on the course will partake in teaching practicals and be given teaching assignments.

If you wish to only and simply deepen your practice through the means of S&F the suggestion is to attend classes regularly, join us on a retreat, and/or have a few private lessons with Raphan.
