WHAT TO EXPECT
Our goal is to prepare you to have a successful yoga career and learn about yourself. We cover the areas that will help you attract new students, retain regular students and continually improve as a teacher and a human being.
Our main goal is to help you FINDING YOURSELF AS A TEACHER. How do you make a student return to your class? How do you become magnetic? Our goal is to help you find your voice and your true persona and apply it to teaching yoga. When you are yourself, your crowd will find you.
The art of SEQUENCING is essential to take your students to the next level. Through carefully selecting the theme, peak posses and progression during a yoga class, students will be able to do things they could not do any other way.
We have great focus on ANATOMY. This discipline has become essential in the modern yoga world and will help you design a proper sequence, provide sound feedback and avoid injuries.
We help you develop your intuition as a teacher with subjects like HOW TO SEE ENERGIES where we learn to read the body of a student and see what areas need help, analyzing what muscle groups are being engaged and teaching you how to develop a vocabulary to help your student with precision and purpose.
We want to make you BUSINESS savvy. Nowadays yoga teachers need to understand their role and place in society and their economic interactions with their students, yoga studios and the human group as a whole. We will study the implications of the virtual yoga movement and the opportunities we now have due to this new medium.
Keeping up with tradition, we will cover SANSKRIT, the ROOTS OF YOGA PHILOSOPHY, PRANAYAMA, CHAKRAS, BHANDAS and AYURVEDA. The tradition of yoga is rich, fascinating, mystical and we want you to fall in love with it.
Finally, as a tool for self development, we will MEDITATE every day. We will visit numerous schools and techniques and will have fun calming our minds. After practicing these mediation techniques ourselves, we will learn HOW TO DESIGN YOUR OWN MEDITATION WORKSHOP so you can become a meditation guide and teacher.
Specific curriculum varies between the 200hr and 300hr Teacher Training. Please contact us for more information and to discuss which option is best for you.
