The training begins with your commitment to dive into four consecutive Weekend Intensives in your preferred style of yoga. This month will be the foundation of your 200 hour Teacher Training, and during these weekends we will:
During this Weekend Intensive you will first focus on important applied anatomy lessons with an esteemed guest teacher, doing book work and group exercises, and participate in discussions. You will learn how to use your knowledge of anatomy to cue and assist safely, and to be able to teach in a way that transforms your students’ practices.
Once we have a solid understanding of anatomy and bio-mechanics, we move into learning and practicing safe, effective, and empowering hands-on assists. You will watch demonstration, receive the assists to feel them in your own body, and then practice them on different body types. It is incredible how much feeling the posture move will inform how you see and teach your students.
The foundation of being a confident and powerful teacher and leader is EXPERIENCE. Our training program is unique in that participants lead our regularly scheduled Community Flow class during the training process. A training team member will mentor you before and after class, giving coaching, encouragement, and teaching feedback immediately following class. This will give you the tools you need to have direction, improve your technique, and will fast-track your ability to go out and start teaching in the community.
Your training will culminate in an off-campus Weeklong Immersion. We take our training group to a beautiful Colorado location that is convenient to drive to, yet distinctly away from “real life”: you will practice, eat, sleep, and play with your training tribe. No distractions, just yoga. It is invaluable to dive into your practice and studies in an immersive way; and as an added benefit, you get a mini-retreat! Eat healthy meals prepared just for us, practice yoga and meditation multiple times a day, soak in mineral baths, read sacred texts that inspire the soul, and participate in self-inquiry exercises that could potentially be the catalyst for radical self-healing and growth. The Weeklong Immersion will end with a graduation ceremony to celebrate you, our group, and the incredible experience we shared!
