This 24-hour training is designed to prepare you to practice the powerful method of personal evolution, Inner Axis, and to teach people from all walks of life and levels of fitness.
We currently have a worldwide epidemic of stress and anxiety that is stifling our happiness, creativity, and intimacy. This special event will teach you how to use breathing patterns to help alleviate anxiety, PTSD, depression, and improve sleep.
This 24-hour module will include:
1. The Breath
Getting students to commit to deep breathing, especially in big cities can be like pulling nails...there is so much frozen energy around the heart, so much stress, so much competitiveness and self-loathing that to breathe makes some feel like their lives may fall apart. So, teaching deep breathing is a real challenge. Opening the chest area is the hardest aspect because it is in the chest/thorax (Latin for shield) that we keep our old memories, our sadness, and to open the chest would mean dealing with a new personality - dealing with a new body. Max will reveal his secrets and techniques on these subjects:
- Inner Axis daily Breath-initiated Movement
- Evolutionary Breathing Patterns
- Triggering Emotional Healing
2. Postures and Movement
Healing, transformation, and empowerment. Max Strom will reveal his core principles of posture and movement based on his two decades of teaching and his in-depth knowledge of Hatha Yoga and QI Gong. In just a few short days you will have the knowledge to make you a more insightful and safe teacher.
We teach in 5 different ways: • By example (including behavior, demonstration, and pantomime) • By what we say • The order in which we say it • By what we don’t say • By touch
Your function as a teacher is very similar to that of a mid-wife, as the student is both the mother of the coming child and the child itself. Because the heart breaks open and the new vulnerable little child is revealed, it dries off and becomes the new student. So, sometimes you are dealing with the mother and sometimes you are dealing with the child depending on the moment.
What can I expect?
Many of these issues are due to being taught socially from a very young age to suppress and numb our feelings, leaving us carrying an un-reconciled and unexpressed silo of emotions in our chest. Using breathing patterns for 15 minutes daily, as taught by Max Strom, can bring us back to a peaceful and calm state as well as gift us with insight and knowledge that was buried along with our feelings. With this new insight we are empowered to make new and meaningful life decisions.
Whether or not you have a stiff body or a rigid schedule, or you are a yoga teacher, therapist, or health practitioner who wants to incorporate this work into your teaching repertoire, this course will help to ignite healing and transformation. You will find this course inspiring, immediately useful and indispensable to your journey. For those of you who are not teachers or health practitioners, trust that you will be seen and cared for just as you are.
4. The Power of Ethical Precepts–The Ten Virtues
The essence-message of all the great teachers of morality is at heart, the same. They may appear different because the message was altered for the particular time, place and culture they were addressing. The message is that our battles are not fought by challenging others to change their beliefs or behavior; rather, our own personal behavior is all we really have power over in the end. This effect or lack of a person’s ethics are so potent that it has been said that virtue alone is the most meaningful standard to distinguish one person from another. Following a virtuous path obviously benefits mankind and the world, but the great secret of ethics is that they also have an ineffably powerful transformative effect on our own being.
5. The Way In – Using Guided Visualizations for Rapid Healing
This brand new seminar offers an inspiring and insightful talk by Max, followed by a course on how to write and guide visualizations. The insight you will gain from your internal response to visualizations cannot be purchased or found in a book, university, or website. This special seminar will help you to see your world differently, and can course-correct the trajectory of your life course.
6. Lifespan tools
Wisdom Beyond the Mat, writing and discussion. Be sure to bring writing materials.
