NOT YOUR TYPICAL 200-HOUR YTT

 

This landmark program is a departure from the typical 200-hour yoga teacher trainings you see everywhere. You will learn:

  • Anatomy, Physiology & Kinesiology

  • In Depth Breakdown of Postures

  • Yoga Philosophy seen through different lenses

  • The Structure of a Class 

  • Sequencing

  • Safety & Alignment

  • Lineages of Yoga

  • Science of Mindfulness, Meditation and Breath

  • The Nervous System 

  • Daily Movement and Practice Teaching 

  • Verbal and Visual Cueing

  • The Role of a Teacher

  • The Power Language

  • The Changing Industry of Yoga for Teachers

  • Yoga through Pregnancy

In addition, you will learn not only the basics of teaching yoga, but also how to take yoga beyond the studio and into the communities and spaces where it's most needed: homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, schools, fire and police stations, and more. We will explore:

 

  • Kinesiology and injury prevention

  • The intersection of yoga and social justice

  • Trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness

  • Accessibility

  • Chair yoga

  • Yoga for eating disorders

  • Yoga for mental health

  • Yoga for addiction

  • Ableism and disability

  • Body-positive yoga

  • Cultural appropriation

  • Meditation immersion

  • Autism

  • Trauma in children

  • Community outreach

  • Yin Yoga Immersion

  • Sampler plate: Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, Restorative Yoga

  • And more...

During this time of unprecedented change, there is a tremendous need to bring yoga and mindfulness to underserved and underestimated communities, and a need for skilled teachers that understand yoga from an informed, conscious and community-based standpoint.

 

We believe that yoga is for EVERYONE regardless of age, physical ability or socioeconomic status. Our vision is to train and create a network of conscious yoga teachers who serve our local communities and are conduits for change.
