Join 4-Beat creator Marcus Veda for this six-day, 50-hour teacher training. Born out of the Rocket Yoga system, 4-Beat is a dynamic vinyasa flow style that is rapidly becoming one of the most popular styles of yoga in London. The core of the practice is the alignment of the breath to the slow, regular beat of the music.
You will take a deep dive into the psychology of music and its use to enhance the yoga practice (and your teaching). You will look at music’s effect on mood, focus and moving meditation, and how you can control these elements by using the beat to teach (or practice.)
You’ll discover exactly how the the energetic arc of the practice is designed to take you up to a higher place and then bring you back down to one calmer than when you started.
We will cover the two main sequences from the perspective of the practitioner and the teacher:
1. hips focus (flexion🧊)
2. backarches (extension🔥)
Inversions and arm balances feature throughout in order to maintain the energetic lift and playful spirt. But the teaching of the breath always comes before the difficulty of the pose.
It doesn’t matter if you are a teacher or not. This training is for people who might have completed a 200-hour training of any style of yoga, or for any experienced practitioner who wants to go deeper into the connection of the beat and the breath.
