Location: Stonington, Maine
This 200-hour Teacher Training is for existing teachers who wish to refine their craft, for those wishing to become teachers, and for serious students who simply wish to deepen their practice.
This course will provide you with:
an introduction to yoga history and philosophy and its relevance in our world today
the tools to create a consistent personal practice that can withstand the ups and downs of life
a thorough grounding in applied anatomy and physiology as it relates to movement patterns in yoga that far exceed the standards set by Yoga Alliance
in-depth understanding of foundational postures and transitions
appreciation for basic factors governing range of motion
the ability to create intelligent sequencing for a balanced and sustainable practice
the ability to offer safe and effective hands-on physical adjustments that enhance self-awareness in new students and that facilitate fresh discovery in experienced students
the ability to deliver clear and concise cues that invite inquiry and exploration
confidence in leading mixed-level classes
a deep respect for the sacredness of the yoga tradition and our ethical responsibility as teachers to uphold a manner of living that reflects our commitment to unity, wholeness and peace.
Guided meditation, pranayama and asana practice, analysis of these techniques, and how to both practice and teach them will lead us to the very heart of the program which is ACTUAL PRACTICE TEACHING. Sensitivity and respect will be shown to each person's unique process and pace of learning, and you will receive massive support and encouragement from me as you make the transition from student to teacher.
I welcome you with open arms to join me for the learning adventure of a lifetime! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you might have to help determine if this training is the right fit for you.
a passionate commitment to a multi-dimensional yoga practice including observances of the yamas and niyamas, meditation, asana, pranayama, and ongoing self-study
