Our teacher training is based on Yoga Alliance 200 hour standards for certification, but goes far beyond the required minimum to allow you to have a firm foundation to stand on should you choose to teach upon completion. We believe it takes time and concentrated attention to grow into the best teacher you can become. While 200 hour training is just the beginning of this journey, we seek to give you the time and attention you need to develop your skills, to know yourself more deeply and to become the kind of teacher we know you can be.
Our 200 hour teacher training is open to students of yoga with at least one year of consistent practice and experience in asana, pranayama and meditation with a qualified teacher. Written application is required for admission. The total training consists of over 300+ hours of training and practice. We will cover the following areas:
Techniques, training and practice of asanas, pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, meditation and more. You will be guided through the practice of these techniques and learn how to effectively share them with others.
Teaching Methodology including communication skills, establishing priorities and boundaries, how to teach special populations including pre-natal and the elderly, principles of demonstration, observation and assisting, embodying the qualities of a teacher and the business of yoga.
Anatomy and Physiology of the human physical and energetic bodies including how this knowledge relates to the healthy and safe practice and instruction of asana and pranayama.
Yoga philosophy, lifestyle and ethics for Yoga Teachers to ground your teaching and practice in the ancient wisdom traditions of yoga.
Practicum teaching, assisting and observing a variety of classes over the course of the program.
Guided self study including personal practice, reading texts, taking classes, practice teaching, and written homework assignments to allow you to process and integrate what you learn in each training day.
Development of your personal sadhana (spiritual practice) through group and individual practice and vedic ceremony.
