6 month part-intensive with the Zenshed, Worcester UK

— Ziba Bayley

Ziba, Guy & Cindy welcome you to delve deep and be present in this part-intensive, comprehensive and application-based curriculum of the 8 limbs with The Zen Shed. 

What awaits you in this comprehensive and lineage-based programme.

This training will introduce you to the history, lineage, core concepts and practices of yoga based at their root in Raja yoga and Samkhya philosophy - Pantanjali’s 8 Limbs. And for the purposes of this training, Hatha Yoga for its balancing and Vinyasa for the design of asana practice and hands-on assists.

We will also cover Mantra and Sound (Nada) yoga, Sankalpa and Yoga Nidra as well as other key practices used to establish applied experience in pranayama, sense withdrawal, concentration and meditation. 

For further understanding of meditation and its practices we will draw on Vedanta and the Great Gurus. 

This journey consists of initial anatomy training, completed online at your own pace, a two-week intensive course hosted by Ziba, followed by a weekend in December with two guest teachers and the finals at the end of February/March.  Giving you the opportunity to experience the immersion of an intensive as well as the embodiment or routine of daily yoga practice (Sadhana). 

Each morning unfolds with a complete yoga class, including the asana practice leading to peak posture in traditional vinyasa form. After a nutrient-rich breakfast we focus on theory and practice application. A light, healthy lunch is followed by theory study, tests, practicum, feedback and fun quizzes to help set long-term memory. For the final class of the day, sangha (our yoga community) concentrates on teaching theory and practice. This includes anatomy, physiology, guidance, group work, complementary collections of asanas and understanding your unique body (which will contribute to your foundational knowledge of posture familiarity). See daily timetable.

With guest teachers visiting throughout the programme you will receive a broad view of contemporary yoga in our times as well as the essence of how other lineages and teachers interpret the wisdom of yoga, Laya, Samkhya and Vedanta alongside the intellect of movement and recognition of the subtle body.

Tripti, Santosha, Chidabhasa - Delight, Contentment, Truth

Essentially we are creating together a foundation for the journey. Firstly, as a student of yoga, second, as a teacher and thirdly, for that on which you can build; continue your experiential-based learning, philosophical understanding and overall awareness of this vast, mystical world of yoga. As above so below.

What to expect from the training

Sarah talks about the training you will receive.

This is a holistic training so there was more than just asana, asana I think you learn anywhere, a lot of it I think you can just learn in a class.

Why choose a part-intensive training programme?

This course begins with a two week intensive followed by a weekend of workshops and a final weekend at the 6 month deadline.

We have applied this particular pedagogy design to give the opportunity for a deeper understanding and experiential application of the practices, alongside the inculcation of a home life with yoga.

The initial two-week intensive establishes the individual’s immersion or re-immersion into a daily yoga practice, along side group learning, sharing and development.

The Sadhana is taken in-between the intensive and the final weekend; with journaling, regular direction, peer support, feedback, calls, videos and a chance to reconnect with your yoga family in person at the workshop weekend.

Over the six month period students will have had the opportunity to imbed and absorb the programme’s contents to date and gather the experience of practical application before the final weekend of kinship, workshops, and exams.
