This 200-hour yoga teacher training course is not only for students who wish to teach but for 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 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.
