COURSE CURRICULUM:

Meditation/Pranayama:
Pranayama, the formal practice of controlling the breath, lies at the heart of yoga. It has a mysterious power to soothe and revitalize a tired body, a flagging spirit, or a wild mind. The ancient sages taught that prana, the vital force circulating through us, can be cultivated and channeled through various breathing exercises. In the process, the mind is calmed, rejuvenated, and uplifted. Pranayama serves as an important bridge between the outward, active practices of yoga—like asana—and the internal, surrendering practices that lead us into deeper states of meditation.

Teaching Methodology:
Learn Asana Technique
Proper Alignment & Refinement
Sequencing an Intelligent class
Creating an Intention & Theme for class

Effective cueing for beginners, intermediate & advanced students

Yoga Anatomy & Ayurveda:
Anatomy: Learn & study the structure of the human body, including gross anatomy, an overview of tissue and organ systems. It will also cover the study of principles of movement, their application to yoga practice, and benefits and contraindications, which include healthy movement patterns.
Ayurveda: one of the world’s oldest holistic (whole-body) healing systems. It was developed thousands of years ago in India. It is based on the belief that health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit. The primary focus of Ayurvedic medicine is to promote good health, rather than fight disease

Practice Teaching:
Emphasis will be placed on preparing the teacher trainee for the actual practice of teaching a class. Each student will have multiple opportunities to lead small groups of their fellow trainees through several consecutive postures and learn thematic approaches to teaching. The practice teaching sessions will be followed by feedback sessions with lead instructors and training assistants.

History & Philosophy of Yoga:
Learn how it began, the history that informs our current practice, the philosophical pathways of the past, and current thought and future of Yoga.

Chakra & The Emotional Body:
What is a Chakra?
The word is Sanskrit for wheels or disc. It refers to seven areas of the body that align with the spine. In these discs we store information according to our belief systems. Those that were passed down through the generations and those of our own. Having knowledge about these chakras gives us the ability to be more at ease within our bodies. It also helps us to understand how disease manifests in the body when there is an overload of a belief that is out of balance with what is true.
Learning the chakras and how they work, help to determine our health in mind, body and spirit and is an excellent way to pursue happiness and balance in our lives.

Hands on Adjustments:
Such an important tool as a teacher, the ability to enhance your students experience and keep them safe and aligned. Learn how to adjust with confidence and enhance your students experience as a Teacher.

Arm Balancing/Power and Yin:
An introduction to these two types of yoga, Power and Yin. These segments will give you the tools you need and point you in the right direction to add to your tools as a teacher.

Business/Ethics of Yoga:

— What students are saying about our last training… —


“Thank you so much for this opportunity. I’ll never forget it. Truly an amazing experience I will talk about for years to come. I miss it already.”


“Thank you all so much for your support throughout the training. The amount of people that came in to teach their specialties and ease in which we could contact anyone with questions really made for an outstanding experience. Sad that it’s over!!”


“I learned what I set out to and felt there were many check ins for any lingering questions or confusions. I was also opened to so many different aspects of Yoga that I wouldn’t have on my own. Really appreciate the thought and care everyone put into the program and the open environment that was so well fostered. It was a lot to learn and was really well facilitated time and resource wise. Look forward to seeing everyone at the studio.”

“ I felt like I got a well rounded experience with exposure to so many aspects I wouldn’t have explored on my own and the people who taught us were well chosen. Thanks so much for an enlightening six months!"
