You'll learn the positive psychology basics, and how this knowledge can be applied in the yoga setting, focusing on emotions, flow state, meditation and mindfulness.

Words from YOUnicorns

Amy and Saffron are both so bright, so bubbly, and willing to do what it takes to make everyone feel comfortable and accepted, and create a great learning environment.  Their knowledge is so detailed for all different styles of movement – handstands, aerial and yoga.

Elise - Australia

image34

Amy and Saffron had so much knowledge - whether it is with the psychology, or the anatomy – but they are also so open to hearing what others have to say.  It is really nice because everyone shares their own experience.

Kim - California, USA

image35

Working with Saffron and Amy is inspiring.  They are such great mentors for how to frame a class, how to sequence different yoga movements, and how to weave it into an aerial practice.  It has been amazing.

Kim - New Zealand

image36

[As a yoga teacher] I really see the magic that Amy and Saffron create – and that they spread this to everybody that they meet.  To have a set course to study, and to build from, is an amazing gift to be able to spread through the community.  I felt honored to be one of their students, and I really see that they are amazing light workers.  

Lelani - South Africa

I feel like this whole experience has been very tastefully done – a lot of thought gone into it, a lot of love, and you can see that.  I feel like this program really attracts the right type of people: people who are searching for more, and also want to be leaders and teachers in this time that we have all together on this planet.

Ashley - California, USA

Amy and Saffron have really paid a lot of attention to detail.  Coming from an alignment based background, I'm really impressed, as an anatomy teacher and bodyworker, at how they have incorporated so much anatomy and really conscious practice into what they teach, using the silks to build strength and awareness.
