Virtual Portugal 2020
Embodied Yin™ & Yoga Nidra Training
Satu Tuomela + Jana Roemer
This training is moving ONLINE!
We don't think we need to explain why. There will be a combination of live sessions, pre-recorded content, manuals and homework as well as a practicum.
We understand that this is a HUGE shift, so we are planning in such a way that we can all gather live to create that intimate community aspect, have time for interactions between everyone, we'll debrief our shared practices and create time for question & answer sessions.
As such, there are daily 3.5 hour live sessions that work with both European and North American time zones - these will be mandatory for certification, complimented with about 90 hours of pre-recorded content that you'll participate in advance of the lives (to make it work in different time zones).
Live Zoom sessions:
8:30am - noon PST / 4:30pm - 8pm WEST
Being a Mamas ourselves, we completely recognize that this type of intensive does not work with family at home -- so we have created an extended version of this same training where the original course is available for three months time with live check ins along the way, so you still have that live interaction, community and learning environment.
No matter which path you choose, we are asking that you stick to that path so we can keep the class size such that everyone can been seen, heard and get the attention that is needed for this type of journey.
We will all start together on October 17th and the extended version dates are as follows:
October 17 - 20th (everyone together)
November 13 - 15th
December 11 - 13th
What's in it for you?
This online training includes more than 100 hours in total, combining pre-recorded material + 10 days of live zoom sessions with both Satu + Jana

Satu Tuomela has been teaching for a couple decades. In that time she studied many different styles of yoga before finding a home in the Embodied Flow School of Yoga where she's been instrumental in expanding the program by co-creating what is now Embodied Flow™ Yin.
As the creator of Embodied Yin™ (Since 2010) , she invites us to explore our multidimensional capacities for healing by listening and sensing with the whole body-mind. Rooted in the teachings of Body-Mind Centering and other Somatic modalities, TCM and Tantrik philosphy, this style of Yin takes you a layer deeper, awakening an exploration of interoception that is the perfect lead in to a profound Yoga Nidra practice.
Jana Roemer has a decade of experience leading 200hr and 300hr YTT's, and other trainings, recently honing in to exclusively facilitate Yoga Nidra trainings in her own, most authentic voice. She works in intuitive and loving ways to help coax your truth to the surface. You will receive personal coaching, participate in group discussions and refine your skills as a nidra guide through a teaching practicum and an optional post-training mentorship.
This training is rooted in traditional Yoga Nidra styles which follow the koshas as a map to the practice, enhanced by her time in advanced studies with Dr. Joe Dispenza.
Her intention is to create a deeply personal experience that will help to clear blockages and allow you time to explore your inner landscape so the practice speaks for itself. This training will set you up to guide yoga nidra practices with confidence.

Testimonial for Satu:
"Satu in my opinion, one of the most amazing teachers in the world. The talent for holding space, the all seeing eye, the knowledge, curiousity and ability to create magic... In addition, she is a very open and generous person, always supportive, trusting and inclusive. I have taken several trainings with Satu, these are designed to lift you as a person, to help you find your true voice, your inner truth, to find your own answers, not pushing you into a format or a truth created by someone else."
Testimonial for Jana:
"Training with Jana was a rebirth experience. For a week it felt like I lived in a parallel reality, one where my Soul was ignited, my intellect stimulated and my inner child soothed. Jana has so much wisdom and she share it with so much passion. The way she holds space is incredible. The way she carefully creates content and experience is amazing. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to study with such a goddess and urge anyone who feels the call to dive into the subconscious to reach out to Jana"
