About the course

We belong to the Earth and Nature shapes us. Whatever connection we choose to establish with it, Nature will always be showing up to us. Reminding us that it is where we come from, where we live and where we are going.

The five elements dance within us as the expression of Nature that we are. Yoga gives us the opportunity to balance them and thus connect with the essential, the pure, the instinctive. Dancing with the five elements through yoga not only connects us to Nature but provides us with an organic way of balance our body, mind and soul from the inside and out. Moving the Nature that we are made of is what allows our essence to find the way to express itself.

This 200H Yoga Vinyasa training is also a transformation. We study the healing power of the body through the nature of the 5 elements through a base sequence which is provided to the students. We apply concepts of physical and energetic anatomy, Ayurveda and Chinese medicine for the complete understanding of the sequence to be learned.

Daily activities based on body expression, simple ancestral rituals and coaching techniques are held with the aim of opening new paths for the students to reconnect with themselves and find what’s unique in them. All the tools that will be put into practice during the workshops will be provided in an understandable way so that everyone can use them in their lessons and in their daily life. Some of the practices and meditations take place in Nature to recharge and feel in depth the element with which we work.

Students are encouraged to create from the basic sequence once they master it, looking for what each person has to give to the world. There will be a special emphasis on finding each one’s voice, bring in to light what is their contribution to the world and give them tools to apply it in their lessons. Some of the sessions focus on learning how to hold spaces where the work done by the assistants is profound, such as intensive workshops, retreats and trainings. The whole process of transformation is always guided with love.

Beginners and experienced practitioners are welcome.

Once the training is finished, the resulting yoga teachers are offered with the possibility of continuing their education with online coaching sessions during a year as a support to their personal and professional development.

This Vinyasa yoga training is accredited by the Yoga Alliance and all of its content his empowered by all you can yoga™.

Laura Serrano

Laura Serrano

Nomad. This was the word with which Laura felt more comfortable until she found in Gran Canaria a place she could call home. There she stopped, after ten years of working as a researcher in the field of biology and as a professional photographer. Her path since she can remember has always been triggered by the strong will to find the way to be closer to Nature. While following her intuition and moving beyond her fears, she allowed her work to change as she also did.

Her lifestyle was in constant movement so she needed a space where to connect with the body, listen and release. Dance gave her that space and it was her way to connect to herself. Listening to what the body had to tell her was his medicine. Over the years, she found another method of healing through the movement of energy and she trained in the first and second level of reiki with the teacher Maite Corroto. But it was not until she tried yoga for the first time in 2006, when she knew she had found a place where to stop.

She decided to train as a yoga teacher to begin to share with gratitude what yoga had given her. He joined all kinds of trainings and workshops focused on body awareness, dance, body language and holistic healing to create his own teaching method. She trained for two years as a teacher of the AfroYin® Method, a powerful tool of self-knowledge and personal transformation through movement, awareness and dance. Incorporating the 5 elements into her practice happened with the same spontaneity as the arrival of spring. Through them she felt Nature inside as she always fancied in the most daily, intimate and simple way.

Today, she organizes yoga holidays on the island of Gran Canaria and teaches AfroYin® Method workshops. She’s living the greatest journey of her life being a mother of two.

In her classes, the five elements dance according to the time of day, the season, the lunar cycle and the energy of the group. She combines Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin yoga practices, along with pranayama and meditation techniques, guiding her students through a deep practice, where they just have to breathe and enjoy.

How much experience in yoga do I need to apply?  

We don’t expect you to be a master in Yoga. A minimum of 6 months of practice is required, but the most important part of it is to be eager to learn.  

How can I pay?

When you sign in at the All You Can Yoga website or contact directly See Yoga, you will be informed about the See Yoga company bank details so that you can make the first part of the payment (50% of the total price). Only then, your place in our teacher training will be booked. The other 50% of the payment you can transfer it anytime before one week of the start of the teacher training (the online part).

Where is it taking place?

This Yoga Teacher Training is taking place in the neighborhood of Las Canteras, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain). Las Palmas is a welcoming and charming city located in front of an amazing beach with an urban kind of atmosphere. It has such a special atmosphere of its own that a lot of people end up wanting to come to live here... so be careful ! :)

How can I get to Las Palmas?

The airport flying to Gran Canaria is called Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (LPA). There are a lot of different airlines flying from every European airport. The airport is like half an hour drive from us, so you could either take a bus (L60) or a taxi (which costs around 35€)

Are food and accommodation included in the price?

None of them are included. There are a lot of different cheap and healthy restaurant options where to eat in the neighborhood and of course you can also bring food to eat in your lunch time. Even if we don’t include the accommodation in the price, we will assist you to find a good one that suits you when you book your place with us.

How will the online three weeks organized?

The online work will include 50 learning hours, so most of it will happen in Las Palmas. It will be divided in six theory sessions of 4 hours each on the weekends and four more sessions of 2 hours each two evenings a week. We will use zoom to meet all the participants and promote an active way of learning. Also, you will need to start building up your sadhana every morning (15 minutes practice). We will also help you with it while proposing you a short sequence to be practiced.

If I have an injury or disability and can’t do all the asanas, can I join to this teacher training?

Sure! You don’t need to do all the asanas to join this training. You are welcome just as you are. But it would be good to talk about it in the interview previous to the training to see if that’s the most convenient to you and how you can take the best out of your experience.

Is there homework and required reading?

There will be required reading and homework during the online part of the  training. Throughout the training in Las Palmas there will be no homework more than reviewing everything to get ready for the final exam. We understand that the days are already long and the students will need to rest.  

 What if I need to miss a day or session?

The student then commits to catch up with the content studied and set an extra private 1h retrieve session with the leader of the teacher training. The cost will be of 50€ (covering 4 learning hours) and some tasks about it will need to be done. The schedule will be agreed with the leader of the training. 

Are books and materials included in the price?

The See Yoga/AYCY Manuals are included in the price, except the Anatomy Manual and the Essencial Asana Manual.  The books are not included either.

Can I join the teacher training even if I don’t want to become a teacher?

Absolutely! All practitioners who simply want to deepen more into their yoga practice and experience a beautiful personal transformation, are more than welcome. In that case, the student can choose weather if she or he wants to do the final exam or not.
