The Yoga Bubble Yoga Teacher Training Course is a Yoga Alliance approved residential 300 hours program. The course is spread over four weeks, with a comprehensive distance learning module, giving you time to fully immerse yourself into the learning and teaching experience. Small groups (maximum 10) allow the teachers to give you the tailored and individual experience you need to feel well prepared and confident after your graduation.
Your morning asana class will be a focused on you learning the Ashtanga primary series as a foundation for your development as teachers. On the first two weeks of your course, you will be led through the whole series by your lead teacher and be adjusted and corrected by the assistant. When the group is ready, you will transition into the more traditional Mysore, self-practice style of Ashtanga yoga. The practice is geared towards both experienced Ashtangis and those not so familiar with the series, self-practice is an excellent way to work with our students individually.
Practice on Wednesday and Saturday will be broken up by a Vinyasa Flow class with a specific aim or theme. For example, Wednesday's class could focus on arm balancing and Saturday's class aimed at leaping into Hanumanasana. These classes will serve as an excellent example for those that want to develop their teaching in the style of Vinyasa Flow.
Within your pranayama / meditation session, you will be guided through all the basic pranayama (breathing) techniques and depend on your learning objectives, be taken on to more advanced techniques. By the end of the course, you will have developed your own sequence of pranayama techniques that you will be able to self-practice and take away with you into your practice.
Breath is the bridge between the mental and physical, the subtle and tangible parts of human being. Pranayama's benefits, when practiced regularly are significant and can transform one's mental clarity and self-control.
During the early morning hours, you will also hold group meditations, these will be a mixture of guided and unguided. The guided meditations will be influenced by Patanjali's Yoga Sutras and will, therefore, serve as a tool to quiet the mind, focus, and become present.
Theory classes will explain the benefits accompanying these breathing and meditation techniques enabling you to practice effectively during guided and self-practice classes.
These classes will be structured through the Ashtanga primary series. Running through all the postures as they appear, interweaving a modern anatomical approach, so that the knowledge is applied and applicable to the practice and teaching of yoga. A few classes will also be dedicated to the alignment of postures that do not appear within the series to support your learning within the teaching methodology module. This class is also an excellent opportunity to explore your own practice and learn the suitable modifications for your own body and others.
This module is separated into two halves; the first half concentrates on the teaching of the Ashtanga primary series, focusing on more foundational and traditional aspects of asana, such as learning the correct Sanskrit names, rhythm of breath count, correct order, and the opening and closing mantras. The fantastic thing about this program is the small groups you can work with your individual level and expectations. For example, if you're a teacher with lots of experience, you may want to focus on teaching the whole of the series. If you are a little less familiar with Ashtanga, The Yoga Bubble will prepare you to teach half primary; to Navasana and closing. This will form a strong practical basis for the next module.
Vinyasa Flow and creative sequencing will be the focus in the second half of your course. The Yoga Bubble will ask you to prepare a 60 to 90-minute flow class or workshop. The classes leading up to this assessment will focus on topics such as theme, intention, transitions, peak postures, structure, and energetic. If you are new to teaching Vinyasa Flow, you will gain the tools to become a proficient and confident flow teacher. If you are an experienced flow teacher, The Yoga Bubble will provide you with new options, breaking old habits, inspiring new patterns, allowing you to make strong choices about what you have to give as a teacher.
The Yoga Bubble encourage all students to develop their own style and creativity in order that they find their own unique voice.
These classes will center around the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Yoga Bubble will pick key sutras from the first three chapters to use as initiators for debate and discussion. You will explore both contemporary and traditional interpretations in order to reach your own conclusions.
The relatively modern Ashtanga Vinyasa system as you understand it today will be compared to the more ancient system of Patanjali's Ashtanga yoga, their differences and similarities will be discussed so you can come to a deeper understanding of what it is to be a responsible yoga teacher in the modern world.
