Holistic Dance Advanced Teachers Training (with Certificate)
withSabine Parzer and Guestteachers

Level of specialization
In the Holistic Dance Embodiment Training we deepen the holistic pedagogical and artistic skills we learned in the Teachers Training and expand them by focusing on these 6 global themes:

  • Nature

  • Touch

  • Archetypes

  • Communication

  • Intimacy

  • Healing

The awareness of connectivity of local and global topics such as body, psyche, art, sustainability, healing and spirituality allows us to deepen our knowledge on the somatic, energetic, spiritual, artistic and professional level.


For participants who, after a completion of the Teachers Training, wish to continue to explore embodiment, wholeness, sustainability and healing and integrate the explorations into their personal and professional practice.


Completion of the Holistic Dance Advanced Teachers Training. Participation can also be granted with special permission during the participation of a Teachers Training.

6 Modules within one year (30 days)

Each module can be booked independently and in an individual order. The modules will be held with other non-Advanced Teachers Training participants; you receive 3 additional group sessions of the sum of ca. 5 hours with other Advanced Teachers Training participants during the module on the specified topics and with in-depth counseling and pedagogical content, plus 1 online reflection session approximately 1,5 hours long, usually on the Thursday after each module (specific dates will be decided with the group).

It is recommended to complete the Holistic Dance Advanced Teachers Training within a 3 year period, exceptions to be arranged with the Institute.
