Training programs for teachers

ASAHI ADVANCED TEACHER TRAINING level B is also a weekend course of 12 hours, which delves deeper into the first and second Asahi exercise series and introduces the third series. In addition there is training in how to combine modules of different series to fit specific needs. We use the term flow where each exercise is done only once flowing from one to another creating an unbroken chain. The course teaches also ways to do the Asahi practice in a sitting position or in bed, and offers a good forum for Asahi teachers to share experiences. This course is open only to Asahi Nordic members.
