The Art of Teaching Yoga - Part 1/6
We offer students a 200 hours Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program certified by Yoga Alliance (RYS 200). Our training is a complete and progressive learning experience that deepens student’s knowledge and builds a solid foundation for a working Yoga teacher in each of these fields of study:
- anatomy and physiology
- asanas and sequences
- pranayama and meditation
- history and philosophy
- Sanskrit terminology and mantras
- elements of teaching methodology
During the course, students will learn to artfully create a sequence and teach asana skillfully. Our mission is to prepare prospective teachers to develop safe and sensible Yoga classes for all levels of studentship. We teach to accurately observe students’ bodies, assist them into optimally aligned asana through the use of words, basic hands-on adjustments, modifications and the use of props. An introduction to the functional anatomy and physiology will form the basis for the study of asanas and sequences.
We believe a deeper understanding of Yoga and how to teach asana comes from a consistent commitment to the personal practice, which will become a wellspring of resources and inspiration in teaching: we will encourage the growth of the student and the teacher in each participant. In this sense, the heart of our training is asanas, biomechanics and the sequences. In fact, the student will deepen their Yoga biomechanics knowledge through the practice sessions and workshops on teaching asanas, and develop communication skills to transmit this knowledge to their students.
