The Yoga Bubble team of experienced teacher trainers will guide you through the four weeks ensuring you get the most personalized experience so that your personal practice and your teaching skills can flourish. The course is rooted in the fundamentals of Ashtanga which will provide you a sturdy base to explore the alignment and anatomy of the postures and the development of Vinyasa Flow yoga.
The Yoga Bubble Yoga Teacher Training Course meets the standards of Yoga Alliance. The course is spread over four weeks giving you time to fully immerse yourself into the learning and teaching experience. Small groups (maximum 15) 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. 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 not only an excellent way to work with the students individually, but also great for those with less experience to familiarize themselves with a practice they can safely and confidently perform without guidance upon completion of the course.
Practice on Wednesday and Saturdays 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. 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 the world.
Breath is your bridge between the mental and physical, the subtle and tangible parts of your 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 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 focuses on the skills needed to become a successful, engaging and adaptable yoga teacher. The class centers around peer led feedback and practical activities so that you begin to teach in the very first lesson.
