Yoga Wall Core Training
Part 1 & 2
with Martin Zilbauer
Yoga Wall Core training is a two-part series led by Martin Zilbauer, certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and the leading provider of Yoga Wall trainings around the world. Currently, Martin is the director of training for Yoga Wall in Asia and Europe. Upon conclusion of Yoga Wall Core training, participants will receive a certificate of training completion.
This training is based on the alignment-focused teachings of Iyengar yoga and provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of Yoga Wall principles and practices, which originate from the work B.K.S. Iyengar first established with wall ropes in Pune, Maharashtra, India in the 1960s. Yoga Wall Core training is progressive, modern, and designed for students who afterward intend to teach yoga classes with the help of the Yoga Wall. No prior experience with the Yoga Wall or Iyengar yoga is necessary to benefit from Yoga Wall Core training.
Participants will learn how to practice and teach eight different “sequences”. A sequence of the training typically involves 15-20 asanas, designed to achieve a certain result. Students will also learn how to adapt the sequences – and the asanas within them – to circumstances relevant to their own practice and teaching.
These eight sequences contain more than 120 different asana variations. All of these asanas are practiced using the Yoga Wall and are designed to be easy to teach and practice. For example, within a sequence, the length of the belts is not often changed so the classes continue with an uninterrupted flow.
This newly developed training will give participants the background knowledge and confidence to handle diverse groups of students. To help retain what is learned, students receive two extensive manuals totaling more than 150 illustrated pages. The manuals feature step-by-step analysis of the sequences that have been learned in the training. Yoga Wall Core training manuals assure participants will not forget anything from the training and will greatly assist the teaching of Yoga Wall Core classes to their students right away!
During each day of the training, participants will learn a particular sequence in three distinct phases:
Phase one: Following along as a master guides the class through the sequence of asanas, usually lasting around 1.5 hours. This phase replicates how students will experience the sequence.
Phase two: After experiencing the sequence as a student will do, we take 2.5 to 3 hours to study in detail the asanas done in the sequence. We will gain more understanding of the details, and how to teach and adjust a student when needed. After phase two, you will have the background knowledge and confidence to teach the sequence.
Phase three: Finally, the group will be divided into smaller groups of 3 students each, and in batches of 20 minutes, we will practice teaching the asanas of the sequence to one another. In addition, we will learn Yoga Wall-related anatomy, how to adjust students in the asanas, and receive many Yoga Wall-specific clues on how to enhance your teaching and create fun, helpful classes.
Working since his early 20s as a Physiotherapist, he discovered soon Iyengaryoga as he searched for a method to help others on a deeper level. Realising that it needs a lot of study and selfpractice to develop a deeper understanding of B.K.S. Iyengars wisdom he left his Therapy center in Germany 2004 behind in order to study full time Iyengaryoga in India.
He spent more than 6 years traveling and teaching in India and other Asian countries. The most time he studied with Usha Devi in Rishikesh/India a senior teacher of Iyengar and in the maincentre of B.K.S. Iyengar in Pune/Southindia, where he got also his Certificate from B.K.S. Iyengar personally. He is now the founder of the yoga school relax & move in Amberg, Germany, and continues to strengthen his practice by participating in advanced trainings. He still travels every year at least once to India to further deepen his knowledge.
When Martin is not teaching at his Iyengar Yoga Center he teaches for around 100 days a year a wide variety of workshops all over Europe and Asia and is now the head coach in Europe for trainings with the Great Yoga Wall.
