On-Line Yoga Teacher Training with Linda Munro & Gerald Disse
We have developed a special on-line program of our successful in-person training for those interested in becoming yoga teachers or deepening their personal interest and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. We have been offering teacher trainings since 2008 and are very excited to be offering this on-line version!!
Type of Event
- Teacher Training
Actually you can start at any time and you will have 2 years from the start to complete all the assignments.
Option 1 ~ 1,600 €
(with review of home assignments & Skype privates & certificate of completion)
Option 2 ~ 1,000 €
(access to videos & website)
We give this training in support of guiding students to cultivate their inner growth and self development through a committed practice and self reflection and then using this inner guide to share their knowledge with others.
How it works: You will have 2 years access to the on-line videos of all the topics we cover during the 5-week intensive: an amazing tool to go back to again and again! Furthermore with each video there is a transcript, a translation into French and a notes page that indicates any readings needed, links to related topics, worksheets and home work assignments (in addition to the regular teacher training manual).
There are two options for registration: 1. In this option we will review and evaluate your homework assignments (this option includes 5 hours of Skype private lessons with either Gerald or Linda) 2. In this option you have access to the videos and all the homework lessons but you do not submit them to us for review.
This on line intensive training will offer a comprehensive overview of Ashtanga Yoga in a concise, interesting and intelligent format.
The training is recognized internationally as continuing education hours through Yoga Alliance (meaning you have to already be registered with YA). The 200+ hours are based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary series, which gives a solid base to any dynamic asana practice since most forms of contemporary flowing yoga styles, have evolved out of Ashtanga.
We go over every asana in strict detail; discovering the basic movements which are universal alignment techniques one can apply to all the Ashtanga series, exploring different ways to modify each position with and without props, learning the contraindications for each asana and alternatives to achieve a similar outcome, how to do hands-on adjustments and especially exploring the anatomical understanding to keep each yoga student safe in the poses to encourage a life time practice.
In addition, what is unique in our training is that all the practitioners will finish the training with a solid kriya and pranayama practice. We encourage you to slowly add the kriya and pranayama exercises before your asana practice so that these highly effective and deep practices are taught correctly and safely. They appear subtle however, their subtleness is deceiving therefore, kriya and pranayama need to be taught with intelligence and awareness.
Lastly, as the ‘real’ yoga is beyond the physical aspect there is a great emphasis put on yogic philosophy and daily living to ensure that we all remember to put in that “1% theory” and apply it to all aspects of our lives; on and off the yoga mat and meditation cushion!
