A fundamental review of what is covered in a Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour training including; Anatomy, Principles of Alignment, Yogic Philosophy (Eight Limbed Path and The Bhagavad Gita), Sanskrit and how to teach a safe and sustainable class. This module will prepare the student to dive deeply in every other module by ensuring a cornerstone of knowledge.
An advanced Asana module. Learn how to build Agni (fire in the body) to help discover how to embody and teach level 2/3 postures including arm balances and inversions. We will thoroughly break each posture down anatomically and will add layers of depth including how to sequence to each of the postures as a peak pose. During the Sun module, learn how to sequence classes to create a full bodied experience for your student. Along with postures and sequencing, we will also gain skills in how to effectively lead Pranayama (breath control/restrain exercises).
The external is a reflection of the internal . With our insides strong, and when energy is able to flow freely, we experience harmony as well as balance. We experience a centeredness in both body and mind. This module will focus on the internal geography of our being. Themes to be studied include:
The practice and philosophy of Yin Yoga
Traditional Chinese Medicine and the 12 traditional meridians of the body
The Five Elements
Acupressure and the integration there of into your teaching and assisting
Meditations and Shamanic Journeying of the mind and spirit
Mystic studies of poetry and bhakti heart practices, including use of mantra and chant
Reiki and Thai Yoga Massage
In depth study of the more well known Goddesses (such as Saraswati, Lakshmi, and Durga etc.). Through inspired Asana practices, meditation, mantra and Mudras learn how their stories can help us live a more fulfilling and purpose driven life. Weave the lessons learned into class themes to allow your student to leave feeling more ALIVE and in their bodies.
*November 6-8 is a RETREAT to Horse Creek Lodge (included in 300hr pricing)
An in depth study of the GODS of Yogic Mythology. Discover through the ancient stories how we at our base nature are DIVINE. Learn how to weave each story into a class theme that will create an enriched experience for your student and let them take away how to embody every part of their consciousness.
A module to help redefine your personal meditation practice and how to use yogic philosophy to create a more aligned life path. Discover tools to strengthen your "seat" and WHY mediation is such a crucial aspect to the practice. Also, explore The Yoga Sutras, The Upanishads and The Bhagavad Gita with a teachers mind. Grasp the significance of why each of these texts are timeless and how we can apply the lessons within a class theme and more importantly in our personal experiences.
The Art of Teaching. Discover YOUR voice, and why each of us has a unique and necessary gift to give. Come away with how to speak more from the heart, and how to confidently guide your students to have a mind, body, and spirit connection. We will explore different styles of sequencing, how to purposefully theme a class, effective cuing and modifications as well as hands on assists. The module will also include the Business of Yoga; ethics, class etiquette, how to live as a Yoga teacher, and teacher mentoring.
Astrology, Toltec I Ching & Tarot: These traditions all aim to bridge the same connection between the sacred and the mundane; the earth with the stars. We will study each of these insight/divination practices and explore how to apply these ways of thinking to our own yoga practice as well as our teachings.
Excavate your WHY behind teaching in this final module bridging inquiry to purpose. In the sharing of the practice, we as teachers serve as sacred space holders and light guides. Not telling students what to experience or feel, but providing students with a space to navigate their internal truths on their own mats (and on their life paths). Through liberating others through moving beyond ideas of right and wrong/good or bad we share in the jewel of sangha (community) and like minds and hearts in the Sadhana that is Yoga.
