300HR ADVANCED YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
WITH Brooke Coletta, LOTSIE CASH & GUESTS
DATES COMING SOON!
Join Brooke, Lotsie and guests for their 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training 1 weekend a month plus a once a month check in. We have decided to offer this training bi-annually, so expect the next round in 2022! See below for information on each module.
The story of the Bhagavad Gita is an ancient but very alive text that allows us to discover our deep seated purpose (Dharma). Within the story, Arjuna (who represents us as students) faces an unbearable dilemma, or so he thinks. He is asked to fight, and as a warrior THIS IS HIS ULTIMATE PURPOSE. The problem lies in who he faces on the other side of the battlefield. His conflict is no different than the many internal conflicts that we witness every day. Through an unfolding of the major themes of the Gita, find the answer to the question, “How do I want to live?” Take away from the weekend how to incorporate these teachings into your life and your classes through lecture, deep dive discussions, relevantly themed asana practices, and personal contemplation.
The Yoga Sutras is a book dedicated to helping each of us live a more aligned and purposeful path in life. The text brings forth how we create false identities and cause ourselves suffering. It also gives us tools in how to heal those sufferings in our bodies, minds and hearts. These guidelines were meant for us to realize that Yoga is not something we go to, it is something that LIVES in us. The first of the Sutras is best translated as, “Now is the discipline of Yoga.” This means that to live purposefully and aligned we must live disciplined. We must show up wholeheartedly and unconditionally. Join us for a weekend of shedding the unnecessary layers of Self through deliberate and enlightened conversation, lecture, intentional asana practices, and meditation. Learn to sit in the seat of Self more confidently and take away the ability to bring these teachings into your life as both teacher and student.
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:
Traditional Chinese Medicine and the 12 traditional meridians of the body
The Five Elements and how to embody them
Acupressure and the integration there of into your teaching
Thai Yoga Massage (COVID dependent)
YIN & YOGA NIDRA
Study the practices of Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra and learn how to incorporate them into your teaching and self practice. We also incorporate 5 element theory into Yin yoga in this module, so attendance of the previous 5 elements module is encouraged.
An in depth study of yoga anatomy. Learn functional anatomy and how it specifically applies to yoga postures and class sequencing. Embody the practice with tools such as balls, blocks, straps, therabands and more.
This module will introduce the practice of Bhakti yoga (the yoga of devotion). We will also dive deep into the Koshas, the Chakras, as well as the practices of Mantras and Mudras.
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.
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.
THE ART OF TEACHING
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.
ADVANCED ASANA LAB
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 this 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).
