2016 Weekday 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training
Yoga often lights a spark but fails to offer direction past a certain point – we’re left wanting to know more about the path and about ourselves on it. There are questions about personal practice, the yoga tradition, and how to prepare for meaningful teaching. There is a call in the yoga world for inspired teaching.

You will practice asana, meditation, and pranayama to the point of proficiency and beyond. Your knowledge of yoga theory will deepen to the point that it becomes a core aspect of the fabric of your life -- and of everything you do and say as a yoga teacher. You will learn to teach classes that combine a consistent therapeutic vision with the inspired spontaneity that is the hallmark of Vinyasa Yoga. You will develop a thorough understanding of the elements of the therapeutic principles of yoga and be able to design a class or teach a pose in such a manner that your students will immediately embody those principles.
From Rolf Gates: "A quote from the composer, Claude Debussey, is 'Music is the space between the notes.' Vinyasa Yoga expresses that part of us that celebrates the space between the notes. A typical class will move from simple to complex poses, from standing poses and balancing poses, to back-bends, inversions, and hip openers. The teacher and students take this simple formula and make it their own day by day. No two classes are ever alike yet the intention behind the class is always the same. The genius of Vinyasa Yoga is not found in its approach to alignment or sequencing, but rather in the rhythm with which alignment and sequencing unfold. Anchored in the unseen aspects of an asana class, Vinyasa Yoga is uniquely accommodating to the evolution of a teacher; allowing her to bring all that she has learned and all that she is into her classroom. The result is a class that is at once consistent and inspired."
