Program Description and Structure

The program consists of 3 Immersions followed by a 2 part Teacher Training segment.

3 Part Yoga Immersion

This dynamic Yoga Studies Immersion will lead students on a empowering journey of self discovery through exploration of mind / body connection. Complimented with yoga philosophic principals, the course is well rounded as an introduction to incredible practices and life affirming direction of the Yoga tradition.

Meeting for 4 or 5 days per month over 5 months, each session has been designed to enable intimate knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology and Kinesiology through the lens of the Yoga tradition. A matrix of the body in optimal blueprint will be deeply taught and understood while expanding upon the rich dharma and incredible history of yoga.

The philosophical underpinnings of the Yoga Tradition as presented in this course are non-sectarian and will be presented in such manner as to embrace and embody all faiths. It does ask that you come open minded and respectful of other traditions and be willing to objectively discuss, ask questions and explore ideas of spirit.

Further goal of the 3 part series is to enable and empower each individual with a deep visceral understanding of what hatha yoga does to maintain, therapeutically heal, and manifest greater health, happiness and positive generating possibility.

Completion of this 3 part immersion is prerequisite to the last 2 part Teacher Training Modules where further refinement of skills will prepare graduates to teach entry level Yoga Classes.

Teacher Training Segments

Having completed the 3 Part In-Depth Yoga Immersions, the 2-part Teacher Training specific segment will offer additional necessary elements to refine personal understandings so that cuing of asana for beginner and all level hatha yoga classes becomes more clear and systematic.

The program will review techniques in systemizing alignment principals, verbalizing, sequencing, and will encourage continued refinement into subtle realms of the energetic body. Short practicums will be introduced towards the end of the training followed by one on one meetings with the lead teacher reviewing insights, strengths and where continued focus can be directed to increase teaching most effectively.

The course will also cover the “Seat of the Teacher” reviewing responsibility, expectation, code of ethics and possibilities within the modern business of Yoga. Complementary to the pragmatics of teaching, students will study the energetic body, refine advanced breath technique (pranayama) and explore the benefits of mantra and meditation.
