We will have a break between levels as noted above.  This is an immersive training so a break in between levels has proven effective.  Although most trainees choose to do the entire 200 HR at once, we have it broken into 2 programs just in case your schedule demands that you take a level at another location.

Level 1

This program focuses on establishing your teaching foundation. We will first support you in understanding exactly what yoga is and how to most effectively teach it…this will be an exciting on-going discussion throughout the entire training. Something we always suggest is to get clear about what your idea of being a yoga teacher is and then to DROP IT! These strong held ideas are often false and self-limiting to new teachers. We will put a lot of hard work into getting a vinyasa class sequence down so that you can become relaxed with it. We have worked with many teachers and have lots of tricks at helping you remember so don’t worry! Our sequence is well thought out so that the postures support healthy movement and practice for your students. Through daily posture clinics you will have a strong working knowledge of the pose alignment, modifications & contraindications. We will teach you a new paradigm with posture alignment that questions the textbook teachings. We will teach you how to be 100% relevant with your cues. You will practice teach every day in order to develop your voice and confidence. By the end of this program you will be able to teach a full class. Yes there will be lots of room for growth, that’s where Level 2 comes in.

Level 2

Now that you have a good understanding of what yoga is, what it means to be a yoga teacher, postural alignment and a sequence wired within you, it’s time to refine. We will utilize many exercises to help you get even more relaxed with the sequence so that you can develop your most powerful expression. Every single teacher will have his or her own unique expression and we see it as our job to help you find and embrace it. We will help you understand what it means to truly see your students so that your words are relevant. We don’t believe that reciting a script or bullet points for any given posture is the most effective way of teaching. We will teach you to speak in a way that your students want to listen. You will practice teach a lot in order to get real-time feedback on how your teaching is landing. Although the practice teaching might sound scary—it truly is the best and fastest way to learn. Our commitment is to send you off as a powerful teacher who can teach a yoga class that is way beyond a workout. We want you to teach in a way that helps people live happier, healthier, freer lives!
