Hands and Wrists, Your Foundation for a Fluid Yoga Practice – By Kreg Weiss | 100hr Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Dubai, Feb 24, 2017




While there are many different approaches to intensity and pacing in yoga practices, slowing down the physical elements and shifting poses towards an attitude of receiving and exploring (versus gains & aesthetics) establishes a very different and profound discipline on the mat. A sense of space, a sense of being true – yoga offers an opportunity to tap into a vast expanse of wellness benefits.

This process can readily start by assessing & understanding our bodies better, by taking in yoga cues as merely ‘suggestions’, and by settling into your unique places of resistance and space. It is common to view a lack of mobility in yoga with a negative tone (“I can’t reach my toes”, “I can’t bind around my knee” etc). Resistance is not our foe – it often keeps us stable and supported. Knowing our body structures and its limitations should be embraced with positivity and supported . We come to the mat purely to acquire benefits of our individual wellness – not to mimic the physical form. Through this intention, confidence flourishes.



Hasta bandha (hand energy lock) – sets the foundation for a fluid yoga practice | Kreg Weiss demonstrates.

Our hands are an essential rooting foundation in our yoga practice. Without proper engagement and energy distribution, injuries can readily develop. Applications like hasta bandha (hand energy lock) can greatly enhance the integrity and distribution of force loads throughout the hands and wrists.

Join Kreg Weiss, BHKin, Senior Hatha Yoga Presenter, Exercise Science Specialist and co-creator of the world’s leading platform My Yoga Online on a 12 day fascinating 100-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher’s Training in Dubai where you will cover key structures of rooting techniques that will inspire your practice along with excellent teaching cues + alignment that deliver greater intelligence, purpose and solid foundation.

You’ll dive into a 12 day journey of teaching fluid Hatha Yoga Flows designed for mixed levels including modifying for wrist and knee conditions, posture exploration (foundations/ corrections / modifications / assists), how to sequence corporate yoga classes, postural restoration, chair yoga practices, sequencing for athletes including functional core flows and much more!

This training is open to aspiring teachers, current teachers and passionate yogis. No minimal teaching or practice level required.

Foundation in Yoga Practice - Hatha Yoga by Kreg Weiss from Montreal to Dubai

Throwback to 2015 when Kreg Weiss introduced our participants with the opportunity to engage fundamental alignment principles while saturating the body and mind with breath and balanced energy. Within every posture, Kreg invited modifications to establish and honour our unique practice while also embracing the aspects of receptivity and exploration.

  • Vinyasa Asana LabVinyasa yoga is about combining intelligent sequencing with creative transitions, fluid pacing and precise timing. We will explore all these aspects from different vinyasa lineages including classical Ashtanga, Power Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Anusara, Prana Flow and Forrest Yoga. We will also delve into general class structure; going over vinyasa krama (stages) so every student feels empowered to trust and listen to their bodies, creating a container for students to feel safe to explore emotions that may arise and how to conduct classes that are both fiery and cooling. Restorative poses and chill yin sequences will also be covered.
  • Anatomy of the Injured Yogi: As teachers we encounter many students who either come to class with injuries or get injured in class. We will go over common injuries such as neck, rotator cuff, lower back, knees, wrists and ankles. Information will be given on the most common ways these joints are injured, modifications for different needs and ways of helping rehabilitate.
  • Philosophical Journey to the East:We will read and discuss two key ancient masterpieces that reshaped spirituality in the eastern world, the Bhagavad Gita and the Tao Te Ching. [We recommend you read Stephen Mitchell’s translations of both texts. They need to be read prior to the training] These wisdom filled texts exemplify two radically different philosophical approaches to the same spiritual quest and are worth examining them today and contemplate their deeper teachings.
  • Subtle Body: Daily meditation, mantra and pranayama will be given at the start of each day along with discussion and practical application of these more subtle teachings.
  • Mini yoga class + feedback: Each teacher will have the option to lead a 30 min class based on the material covered in the program and will receive feedback (if they wish) from both Clara and Nico.


Nico Luce
 has been practicing and teaching yoga for over a decade and has trained in various lineages such as Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anusara and Pilates. He is also a devoted student of eastern philosophy and spirituality, which he weaves into the physical practice to create a profound transformational experience. Bringing meaning to the practice and attention to refined biomechanics are at the heart of Nico’s teachings.

Clara Roberts-Oss
 believes that much of the spiritual practice is about ‘lila’, cosmic play. When we play, we are open to the unfolding while in process. It is less about the goal and more about the evolution. Clara has taught for over a decade and has been leading retreats and teacher trainings worldwide for the last 5 years. She draws from many different traditions including Prana Flow, Vinyasa, Iyengar, and Jivamukti, to create strong, integrated holistic classes. Clara has also studied philosophy with Paul Ortega, Lorin Roche and Daniel Odier.


 Testimonials shared by our past Dubai graduates

The overall structure of the workshop was absolutely awesome. The way we started every day’s session was very enlighten. By the time we reach our asana practice we were ready to rock, followed by firing up our core. Thanks Clara you are fantastic your energy made me stronger. – Jeanette 

One of the best training sessions I’ve been on thus far! Clara is an inspiring teacher, her passion for the practice as well as her experience shines through all the time. I love her style and realness. She’s very open to discussion, difference of opinion, exploring others ideas. The entire four days were from a space of love! – Aysha 

Clara is hugely inspirational –it was a treat to be taught by her. The practices exhibited the knowledge that she was imparting so that we could learn it kinesthetically too. I especially valued her alignments from a female perspective and the experience from her own teaching and injuries that she shared with us. – Mandy Wright

Nico’s organic enthusiasm and gregarious nature lends itself to the success of even the most passive learner! Having studied several different lineages and holding a core respect for each of them, he teaches and presents information that applies to many situations. I was never lost during our hours of discussion and debate; active listening happens naturally when Nico is teaching, making you want to follow along. His isn’t shy about sharing his experience or his own journey, to and through yoga, instinctively knowing how to connect to those he’s teaching. This workshop with Nico has not only answered questions but motivated me to ask more. The art of yoga, I believe, is an evolving state where experience provides layers upon layers of information, that weave together, enabling the student/teacher to consistently draw and learn from them. Nico is an artisan who pulls ‘fabric’ from many aspects— even the words themselves, to create and convey his teachings. My mental yoga mat is ever expanding thanks to vastly competent, qualified teachers; Nico is a perfect example of that. I welcome the opportunity to learn from him in the future! – Brittany Beltram
Nico was a wonderful teacher! I learned so much and he had an excellent approach with all of the students. I really appreciated being allowed to participate in the training even though I haven’t completed my 200hr. It was very beneficial for me to attend. Thank you – Michelle Remington

Overcome and Prevent Hip Pain | Yoga Therapy Teacher Training in Dubai 2016



Dubai Yoga Teacher Training Certification 2016

The Middle Path | 30 Hour Therapeutic Elements of Yoga Training in Dubai by Zephyr Wildman, April 29 -May 3, 2016

Over years of use, our joints can get “ground up”—creaking, popping, and wheezing under the stress of their loads. Our hips in particular suffer—so much so that people eventually need hip-replacement surgery. Yoga, which aims for balance and harmony at every level of life, can help us stabilize and revitalize our hips by giving us the tools and the understanding to “hold close” to our spacious center, not just for the sake of our spiritual lives, but also for the health of our joints and the graceful aging of our bodies.

The confluence of a few simple factors can create a perfect storm of stress in the hip joint, especially for those leading an active life: joggers, walkers, weekend athletes, and, of course, asana practitioners (when we are not careful). To understand the problem, we’ll look at two important sets of muscles: the adductors (muscles of the inner thigh and groin that draw the legs toward the midline of the body) and the abductors (muscles of the outer hip that move the thighs apart, away from the midline).

This article was published by Yoga International and written by Doug Keller who holds a master’s degree in philosophy from Fordham University. His yoga journey includes 14 years of practicing in Siddha Yoga ashrams, intensive training in the Iyengar and Anusara methods, and nearly a decade of teaching in the U.S. and abroad. Doug Keller is one of Zephyr Wildman’s direct yoga teachers and she’s excited to present a fascinating 5 Day Therapeutics Training in Dubai on April 29-May 3, 2016.

Whether you are a teacher or practitioner, you will benefit from this intensive, where you will learn dozens of holistic healing postures, the therapeutic benefits of each posture, the art of sequencing a full restorative practice, as well as several sequences to boost energy in a tired, lethargic body and address specific areas in the body.


  • This 5 day teacher training is open for yoga teachers, physical therapists, body workers, energy workers, pilates and fitness instructors, stress management professions, and health counselors.
  • May also be taken by students with a regular yoga practice who are interested in a deeper understanding of therapeutics, the nervous system and energetics.
