Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance
At the Body-Mind-Soul Centre, a registered yin yoga teacher training Yoga Alliance school, we are honored to collaborate with teachers from a wonderfully diverse and experienced background.
The ethos of the Body-Mind-Soul Centre is to apply the teachings and practices of the yoga tradition to go on an exploration to investigate the relationship of our body, mind, and soul. Ultimately to gain clarity, understand our nature, create harmony between us and others, and experience freedom and joy.
In a Taoist / Zen way, we emphasize the value of breath, meditation, and intuition rather than ritual worship or rigorous following of old scriptures and perfect alignments. Everybody is different, so how a pose feels precedes how it is supposed to look.
At the Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance school, we see teaching yoga as an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity. A student’s personal practice and the understanding that follows subsequently spark the inner teacher and sharing with others will come naturally and spontaneously.
The Body-Mind-Soul Centre, Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance school acknowledges and emphasizes that every student and teacher has his or her own unique presence, energy, and teaching style. The Body-Mind-Soul Centre provides an ideal environment for learning and as a practice process, where yoga teacher training courses are presented and practiced in depth.
Our Yoga Teacher Certificate is offered in affiliation with Yoga Alliance and the Yin Yoga Therapy Training Diploma is offered as a component of Alexandra Denkinger M.D.(Acu) physical therapy practice, licensed and registered as Doctor of Medicine in Acupuncture M.D. (ACU) by the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine.
Alexandra Denkinger (M.D.Acu)
Acupuncture Therapist, RYT 500
Founder of The Body-Mind-Soul Centre (RYS), Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance school, and creator of the Yin Healing Method is an inspired Body-Mind-Soul Bio-Hacker, dedicated to helping people empower themselves to live the most authentic, healthy life possible.
As an all-time seeker on a soul-searching journey, she traveled the globe and came in touch with many different healing systems and yoga styles. Eventually, she moved from Germany to India to immerse herself in Ayurveda and Yoga nearly two decades ago.
Alexandra hosts Nature Adventure Retreats, where she loves to take a group of people to outstanding locations and/ or to engage in nature activities like Trekking in Ladakh, Surfing in Sri Lanka, Bouldering in Hampi, or Stand Up Paddle Board Excursions & SUP Yoga in Goa. Besides these active, fun-loving events her main passion is the immersion in Yin Yoga Therapy Trainings, Mindfulness Practices, and Healing & Transformation Retreats and Workshops.
In her Yin Yoga teachings, she integrates the ancient wisdom of Acupuncture Meridians and Chi flow in meditative yoga practice. In a Daoist/ Zen way, the focus is on the value of breath, insight & intuition – supporting a lifestyle that feels in alignment with our deepest self.
Alexandra lives in Mandrem, Goa, where she offers counseling sessions and a variety of holistic treatments. Here she looks at the patient’s whole system, environmental, emotional, and physical. She breaks down complex theories from different healing systems into digestible chunks for use in our daily life and offers practical information and encouragement to feel healthy, vital, joyful, and free.
Alexandra about herself:
”I like to see myself as a Body-Mind-Soul Bio-hacker. I counsel people and I help to heal their wounds. Physical, but mostly emotional. I did not intend to do this. When it came to me though, I knew it is my calling. I am passionate about it.
For me healing ourselves is our responsibility and an expression of environmental activism. We are healing the world by healing ourselves. And healing is actually very simple, it is an uttermost natural thing. Of course not everything can be healed, but most things thought incurable can be. Every organism has a basic instinct to be healed.
Energy flows where attention goes. I believe the good life is a matter of mind and soul and open to everyone. The body never lies. I listen, look and reflect to help you to activate your own healing abilities.
My goal is to empower you to live the most authentic, healthy life possible. A life that feels in alignment with your deepest self. Nothing brings me more joy than watching this happen.
I live and work with dedication, extraordinary intention and the spirit of liberation from convention”.
