ABOUT THE TRAINING:
This course is designed for current teachers, grads of 200hr programs and committed practitioners. This is a Yoga Alliance registered course. This is an educational training built to empower you as a business owner, leader in yoga – anyone inspired to excel and refine. If you have not been a part of a 200hr training but want to attend, be in touch so we can discuss your experience to see if this is appropriate for you. This is not a course for beginners.
ABOUT THE CURRICULUM:
The mornings will begin with progressive asana (Iyengar/Anusara/Forrest Yoga influenced). It will be advanced in the sense that it will include self-care for you, a therapeutic and deep approach – integrating Kundalini Kriyas and longer meditations. It will not be advanced in the sense that we will be doing wild backbends and inversions every day (only sometimes!)
Theory and hands-on work will include learning therapeutics for common injuries and ailments – building your confidence in working with and around injured students – while being respectful to other modaties of healing. It will not be a lesson in extensive anatomy – rather basic anatomy, study of classic ailments (i.e What is SI joint dysfunction? What is sciatica?) body energetics, symbolic sight (seeing intuitively) and using your hands and words in a helpful manner. This is not a course to replace the knowledge of physios/chiros but rather to arm you with basic knowledge that will increase your confidence in working with private students and knowing how to respond with empathy and basic tools.
There will be pre-readings as well. Expect deep inquiry regarding both modern & ancient studies, a toe-dip into the world of Tantric studies, energetic studies (the application of energy anatomy in your own body and seeing it in others) and much more.
ABOUT THE CERTIFICATION:
Certification of the 300Hr program will only be given upon completion of all the days, all non-contact hour homework, online assignments as well as follow-through of your part in the project collaboration. This will be done on an individual basis pending on your effort, consistency and attitude. You will be given a Certificate of Completion instead of full Yoga Allliance certification if any part is missing. This also holds true if I feel you need major work in a certain area, especially aspiring teachers and may require continued mentorship from a local senior teacher or via one of my mentorship programs. This will not be a cake walk. It is my intention that you reap the rewards of hard work while having fun, building community and excelling as a teacher – whether you aspire to eventually lead your own retreats or own your own studio – or not. Your learning is my top priority.
