In this category, you will explore techniques as well as practice and teach: asanas, pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, meditation and other traditional yoga practices. The classes will emphasize both guided practice of the techniques themselves as well as analytical training in how to teach and practice the techniques.

  • Asana: Trainees will deepen their knowledge of poses including beginner and more advanced variations. Benefits, risks, and contraindications will be explored as well as safe transitions, intelligent sequencing, alignment, and hands-on assists. The five main categories of poses will be covered including standing/ balancing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions.

They will learn the benefits and effects of such practices as well as how and when to incorporate them into a class. Pranayamas covered in depth will include abdominal breathing, three-part yogic breath, ujjai pranayama, nadi shodhana, anuloma viloma, and kapalabhati.

  • Chanting / mantra: You will explore mantra as a path to connection, to invoke the spirit and to create sacred space. Trainees will experience, practice and learn mantras to share in class such as Om, the Gayatri Mantra, the Bija mantras for chakra clearing and others.
  • Meditation: Various forms of guided meditation will be shared including breath focus, sensory withdrawal. visualization, mantra, chakra. Emphasis will be on quieting the mind and experiencing divine union on this path of yoga.

In this category, you will share how to refine and apply your skills as a teacher. You will discuss the principles of demonstrating asanas as well as how to effectively observe, use verbal cues and incorporate hands-on assistance in a class.

You will explore the use of language and voice: active vs. passive language and the effective use of each; positive and conscious communication, and habitual speech and communication patterns. This category will prepare trainees to be transformational space holders.

Topics in this category will include:

  • Communication skills such as group dynamics, time management, and the establishment of priorities and boundaries
  • How to address the specific needs of individuals and special populations, to the degree possible in a group setting
  • Principles of demonstration, observation, assisting and correcting
  • Teaching styles
  • Qualities of a teacher
  • The student learning process
  • Business aspects of teaching yoga (including marketing and legal)
  • Teacher/ Student relationship and teacher ethics

Anatomy and physiology

Topics in this category will include anatomical terms and basic overview of the physical body, classes, and discussion on the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems as well as how these systems are benefited by yoga. Trainees will gain knowledge of the cardiovascular system and the heart and the digestive system and the yogic diet.

This category will also include subtle energetic anatomy and physiology, including studies on the chakras and nadis. Trainees will be guided in studying both anatomy/ physiology along with its application to yoga practice including benefits, contraindications, healthy movement patterns, etc.

Yoga philosophy, lifestyle, and ethics for yoga teachers

This program emphasizes a whole lifestyle approach to yoga as a practice and offers guidance on how to live this practice on and off the mat. In this category, you will cover the study of yoga philosophies and traditional texts, particularly, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.

You will explore this 8-fold path as a means to quieting the mind to reach liberation. This study will include group-work, discussion, and application to practice and daily life. This category will also include the transformational framework in which trainees can practice self-inquiry and develop themselves as embodied practitioners and embodied guides.

Practicum

In this category, trainees will actively practice teaching as the lead instructor. They will also observe others teaching, receive and give feedback and assist students while someone else is teaching. Trainees will begin peer teaching from day one as they gradually learn and practice teaching the poses and mini sequences in the Sacred Flow that is practiced in the morning and studied in depth in the art of teaching/touch classes throughout the first half of the training. They will teach this set 90-minute flow in full to a peer, observed by a facilitator. In the second half of the training, students will create their own full sequence from the tools provided, share a 90-minute class through peer teaching and receive feedback from their peers and facilitators.
