VERBAL INSTRUCTIONS & VOCAL SKILLS – Are you shy? Are you afraid to speak in front of people? Don’t worry. You’re going to become a pro at public speaking. Our teaching team has spent 6 years developing a foolproof system that turns anyone into a great teacher in a matter of days. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never taught anyone anything in your whole life. With our system, you can learn to be effective.
Thinking on your feet is a huge part of being a yoga teacher. Sometimes you’ll need to use your voice to keep control of the class, and other times you may need to physically assist a student in and out of a posture. You’ll learn the how’s and when’s of helping and modifying- so everyone has a safe and uplifting experience. This is the real “art of teaching”.
KRIYAS, PRANAYAMA, MEDITATION – There’s more to learn than just yoga poses. Throughout the training, we’ll practice powerful yogic techniques for cleansing and purifying the body (kriyas). We will look in depth at breathing exercises (pranayama) that will soothe the nerves and focus the mind. At our evening meditation, we’ll sit together as a group and practice stillness- the most challenging yoga practice of all.
Learn the real history of yoga and its true meaning. The yoga we all know and love today is very different than the spiritual practices of India. As a yoga teacher, it’s important to know the history and belief system that started this powerful practice we now love.
ANATOMY OF YOGA – Head, shoulders, knees, and toes… When we practice yoga, we become hyper-aware of our bodies, our imbalances, our weaknesses, and our strengths. The study of anatomy, specifically as it relates to yoga, will help you gain a deeper understanding of what’s happening beneath the skin. This is vital to avoid injury, modify poses safely, and teach with confidence.
THE BUSINESS OF YOGA – So now that you’re ready to teach, what’s next? During the last week of the training, you’ll learn how to apply for jobs, how to write a yoga resume, and where to look for work. This introduction to the business of yoga will put you miles ahead of other teachers in your area helping you to land a great job quickly.
At Absolute Yoga, we pride ourselves on having the lowest student-to-teach ratio in the industry. While most trainings have 30, 40, or even 80 students for each teacher, we insist on a 10-to-1 student to teacher ratio. This means you get a gargantuan amount of personalized attention. With this kind of focus, you’ll learn different styles and approaches based on your individual personality.
When you’re researching training courses, the training team should be your number one priority.
