Full Description

This program begins with developing a strong foundation in alignment principles and then builds on the skills and techniques for teaching yoga. The course runs for 6 months.

This training is a registered program with the Yoga Alliance. You will receive a certificate when you complete the curriculum requirements. This certificate also qualifies you to apply for a 200-hour certification with the Yoga Alliance.

Teacher training students will meet eight times (Friday/Saturday and two extended weekends) over the course of 6 months for yoga asana, philosophy, pranayama, mindfulness, and meditation.

Along with deepening your own practice you will learn teaching techniques and alignment principles, use of language, observation skills, hands on adjustments, demonstration skills, and sequencing strategies, and discuss in group format yoga philosophy and the practice of yoga on and off the mat.

Each session includes instruction in alignment principles; practice of yoga asana; core teaching skills: use of language + voice tone, sequencing, hands-on adjustments, therapeutics, observation, demonstrations, discussion of teaching methodologies + philosophies, teaching exercises in small and large groups; and homework assignments.
