Deepen your devotion & find freedom within!
This training is for the dedicated practitioner that wishes to start teaching yoga, as well as the student who would like to deepen their own knowledge and experience in the practice. Through four months of in-depth study, learn practical and creative yoga methodology to embody your practice and inspire others to do the same.
KEY COMPONENTS OF YOUR STUDIES
Establishing Roots: Building a practice of devotion
Become firmly grounded into the teachings of yoga. Rooting into yoga requires consistent effort in aligning your life with the practice. Devote your time to learning the origins of yoga, functional anatomy, body alignment, and integrative yoga philosophy. Develop the discipline for a diligent ritual of asana, pranayama, and meditation. Transform your thoughts and actions to live in your highest form through a strong commitment to your practice.
Spreading Your Wings: Finding freedom through letting go
Devotion to yoga leads to the path of powerful acceptance. We can free ourselves from suffering through surrendering to the things that we cannot change. Radical acceptance invokes our deepest potential and unveils our true nature. Removing the roots of our suffering allows us to find the freedom to do positive actions in the world. When good space is created in our minds and bodies, we begin to live with more purpose and zeal.
KEY COMPONENTS OF TEACHER TRAINING
Why Learn to Teach Yoga?
Learning to teach yoga is a powerful way to thoroughly understand the many facets of your practice. Teacher training is more than conducting a balanced and effective yoga class. It is about learning how to share yoga with others in all moments of daily living. This involves practicing non-harmful speech with your family, listening and not interrupting your co-workers, or simply making space to be fully present with those around you. Teaching yoga comes in all forms. It is up to you to determine how you will share your yoga – the possibilities are endless!
The Science & Art of Teaching
Skillful teaching requires a balance of precision and play. Gain the tools to execute a challenging, yet accessible yoga class for a diverse population. You will learn anatomy and energetics in an organized format to effectively adapt the practice to the needs of individuals. Leave this training with the grace to integrate your voice, creativity, and passion.
The Power of Devotion
Devotional acts like teaching yoga can create the space where the deepest form of connection can occur. Develop the transparency of truly being seen and heard by others and to how to hold a safe space for them to experience the same. When we are fully grounded and open within ourselves, there is no need to hide. This is why teaching yoga can create one of the greatest opportunities for personal growth and serving others.
