WHAT WILL I LEARN
Our 300-hour yoga teacher training focuses on the following topics.
Yoga as an idea and a practice has had many evolutions.
In this training, you will deepen your understanding of classical yoga as taught in the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras and the Tantric yoga teachings that have influenced modern Hatha Yoga.
A deepened understanding of yoga philosophy will help you expertly weave the ancient teachings of yoga into your yoga classes with ease and clarity.
You will be able to teach the yogic concepts in a way that your students will find accessible and easy to understand.
Subtle Body Anatomy
The subtle body is one of my favorite topics. In this advanced yoga teacher training you will study the subtleties of the energetic body from the vayus and koshas to the chakras, nadis, prana, and kundalini. You’ll learn asana, pranayama, mudra, meditation and other methods to balance, refine and attune these energies.
Anatomy and Physiology
A deep exploration of human anatomy and physiology is a hallmark of this course content. Practical and applied anatomy, physiology and biomechanics will provide the knowledge, wisdom and mastery to address the varied needs of your students. A deepened understanding of the muscular, skeletal, and nervous system will inform how you create your sequences, cue your asanas and choose your pranayama techniques.
