The journey from being a yoga student to becoming a yoga teacher can be a powerful step in the transformation of your practice and life itself. This YTT will give you the skills necessary that you have found in your teachers to bring you to the place of wanting to pursue your education and practice more deeply. Our program will be a mentally, physically and emotionally challenging, but it will help each student in the process of being able to Walk the talk. It is easy to fool some of the people some of time~however, we will teach you to become a serious practitioner and this will allow you to become an inspired, amazing yoga teacher. You will practice asana, chanting, meditation, and pranayama, and these practices will begin to unveil the beautiful teacher that you already are. Your knowledge of yoga theory and yogic history will deepen, and with this knowledge you will begin to understand how a daily Sadhana is necessary to become an inspiring yoga teacher. You will learn to teach others while also immersing yourself in deep study, reflection and growth. We invite you to accelerate your practice with other like-minded students to gain fundamental insights by delving into the ancient science of yoga. Tap into the unlimited creativity, energetic principles and aesthetics of Vinyasa. Find the voice of the teacher within you, and get ready to inspire others to shine!
The beauty of a Vinyasa Yoga practice is found in the rhythm with which alignment and sequencing merge together to create a balance of breath and movement. Although there is a strong focus on alignment and sequencing, moving with the breath can also be a powerful meditative action. Anchored in the unseen aspects of an asana class, Vinyasa Yoga uniquely accommodates to the evolution of a teacher, allowing new teachers to bring all that they have learned and all that they are into the classroom. The result is a class that is consistent and inspired.
I look forward to supporting each of you in your journey to deepen your practice or to find your inner teaching voice as a yoga teacher!
You will start to teach during your training, but the goal is only to help you internalize what you’ve learned. It builds tremendous self-confidence. Whether or not you choose to share it as a professional is irrelevant. You might share it with friends or family, or volunteer at your church, school or community center. It does not matter if you are determined to be a teacher or hope to simply to evolve your own practice — this is a good place to land.
Many teacher trainings today are like a teacher mill where limited time is spent with individual students. The process of taking in applications and turning out huge groups of mediocre teachers is BIG business. I know this because as a studio owner and practitioner, I have been to many classes with teachers who were not qualified to teach and received trainings that did not follow the guidelines of the Yoga Alliance. My goal is to provide a training that will have you leaving confident, totally in your authentic voice, and ready to teach. I highly value the coaching relationship and believe it is necessary to commit to each and every student to support their personal journey. I look forward to being your teacher for many years to come!
