Structural Awareness – 100 Hr Massage Immersion Certified Course

13th – 26th January 2019

14 Days / 13 nights


Himalaya Yoga Valley is delighted once again to host well known Body Structural Awareness expert Adam Divine who is holding his unique Massage Immersion Course at our Centre in 13th-26th January 2019. Adam is joined by Viriam Kaur, renowned Kundalaini teacher, energy healer and Himalaya Yoga Valley’s Philosophy Lecturer.

Structural Awareness Technique is a powerful bodywork session unique to each individual – Using fascial release, body-reading, assisted stretches and integration, you will learn a profound massage technique and give your clients the power to heal and understand their own bodies. This 100 hr immersion is a foundation course in Structural Awareness Technique – a massage and body awareness system devised by Adam Divine who is an established  Anatomy lecturer on Himalaya Yoga Valley 200 & 500 Hr Yoga Teacher Trainings.

Conscious bodywork is a conversation between therapist and client – and potentially, more importantly, the bodyworker initiates a dialogue between the client and their own body – the need to start listening to our tensions, our holding patterns, our armouring – and the liberation we can feel in the physical and emotional body when we stand and move with awareness.

The course has a framework of yoga and meditative practices led by Viriam Kaur to help us understand the emotional anatomy, body armouring, brainwave states, yoga nidra, pranic energy and the sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system. It will help us to develop a deep understanding of our own physical and emotional blocks and the potential to create space for our own inner healing.

“Through this course, you will use your own body as a case study. Looking at your own unique structure and body patterns, where you hold tension and where you can create awareness and transformation. You will learn the tools to help you return to your original blueprint” – Adam Divine

Chakra Healing Immersion – 50 Hr Certified Course

November 13-20th

8 Days/ 7 Nights


Viriam Kaur has been teaching the Yoga Philosophy at Himalaya Yoga Valley for 7 years; we are excited that she is going to share a Chakra Healing Immersion in Goa in November.

Tune into Your Body’s Own Innate Wisdom – A week of Energy Awareness Practices

We all have an innate healing wisdom within us – tuning into our energy body and learning to navigate the chakra system is a way of tapping into this wisdom.

Taking a breath and letting our awareness drop into the body, we watch as each breath rises and falls, we follow the breath inwards and our attention to the outside world falls away. The breath is a doorway to our inner world – this realm of energy, of subtle experience, of deep enquiry.

If we can go beyond the distractions of the mind, we can tune into the Energy Body – a network of energy lines (nadis), sacred centres (bindus and chakras) that make up our Yogic Anatomy – our inner world.

What would our lives feel like if we dropped our limiting beliefs and tuned into our intuitive wisdom? We can empower ourselves through a deeper understanding of ourselves.

In this training, we will use the Chakra system as a healing map where each chakra symbolizes an area of our mental, emotional and physical health. Using the chakras to show us our strengths and weaknesses so that we can make our own conscious intention for self-healing. As we develop this greater awareness and intuition, we can begin to heal others. With 50 hours of tuition, you will receive a Practitioners Certificate.

Viriam’s teaching taps into the deep nurturing quality of Mother Earth, bringing with it a groundedness, softness and sense of being held. I have always found her work to be infused with beauty, balance, grace and femininity … as well as having a strong foundation of knowledge and skill. Altogether a great recipe for healing!

Amoda Maa, author of Embodied Enlightenment


“Viriam creates a space of love, support and healing through her presence, her words of wisdom and her undeniable knowledge of subtle energy. Her versatile technique includes touch, mantra, sound, meditation, visualization and crystals that enables holistic healing. An amazing and enlightening experience I will always remember.”

Casey King, Himalaya Yoga Valley and Chakra Healing Training graduate

Intuitive Healing

This eight-day course will focus on healing ourselves and healing others. We will learn techniques to tune into the energies that run through us – we need to understand, sense and feel these energies within ourselves, before we turn our attention towards healing others – in this way, we build an intuitive awareness of the chakra system. Intuition is the key to healing; we can learn all the tools of the trade, but what empowers us as a healer is listening to our own intuition. Through meditation and energy work we will build a deeper trust of our own intuitive sense.

Yoga & Awareness with Viriam

Every morning we will go on a Chakra Journey with Yoga and Meditation. We want to create an embodied experience of each chakra – what the chakra means to us – as this is integral for our own healing journey.

Viriam works with Kundalini Yoga, sound healing and yoga nidra in her classes. Depending on the chakra, the yoga can be dynamic (if we are working with the solar plexus for example) or more meditative (if we are working with the third-eye). We will use asana that tunes us into an inner understanding of our subtle energy network. Each morning we will be invited to listen to ourselves and understand our strengths and vulnerabilities – our healing comes from listening to ourselves; from dropping our limiting beliefs and developing a respect for our body and our journey.
