This 200-hour yoga teacher training course is not only for students who wish to teach but to dedicated students who wish to deepen their own yoga practice. Within this training we will study both the inner and the outer self. It will be a holistic exploration of mind, body and spirit. This is a 10-month course meeting one weekend a month.
This course includes:
- Hatha yoga practice as a template for exploring awareness and compassion.
- Balancing effort with relaxation.
- Physiology and anatomy for understanding the bio-mechanics of movement.
- The development and practice of teaching skills.
- An introduction to the classical wisdom of the Yoga Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita.
- A syllabus and resource guide.
- Mentoring and study groups.
Participants will also be exposed to yoga Nidra, prenatal yoga, restorative yoga, using the rope wall, and partner yoga, as well as "hands-on" assisting and adjusting. Safety is emphasized for both you and your students. We aim to work in a way that promotes optimal health and function.
For this training, we meet once a month beginning in September 2013 and ending in July 2014. Each training weekend we will meet on Fridays from 6-9pm and on Sundays from 8-4pm with a 1-hour break for lunch from 12-1pm. Some special Saturday times with guest teachers will be chosen later with group input.
The tuition for the teacher training is $1700 and includes books and any of our regular on-going yoga classes that you want to attend. Please PRE-REGISTER by August 31st. The registration application is available to download on the Yoga Place website located under Teacher Training.
