HOUR YOGA ALLIANCE CERTIFIED VINYASA YOGA TEACHER TRAINING STARTING SEPT 2015
200 hour teaching immersion for those who feel that teaching yoga is your calling or for those who want to seriously deepen
their practice. Six months of regular practice is required for entry into my program. If you have
been practicing less than that, but with intense commitment to practice, I am open to discussion on this requirement.
This training is also open to those who want to deepen their practice, but will have a heavy focus on practice teaching and
all of the following listed below. Learn how to be, not only of great service to yourself, but to the rest of the world. This
training will feature a few guest teachers! Expect David Vendetti for sure!
This training will produce intelligent, connected, compassionate,
nurturing, powerful and confident teachers well versed in history, philosophy, spirituality, anatomy, energy, safe sequencing,
how to sequence for injury, etc.
My trainings includes intense study of: asana (postures), pranayama,
chanting, mantra, meditation and other traditional yoga techniques. Analytical training in how to teach and practice the yoga
techniques through practice and guided practice will be included. Principles of demonstration, observation, assisting, and
instruction will also be a heavy focus. We will explore various styles of yoga, the qualities of a teacher, the business aspect
of yoga and the student experience. Human physical anatomy and physiology (bodily systems, organs, etc.,) energetic anatomy
and physiology (chakras, nadis, etc.) will be an intense part of this training. All benefits, contraindications and healthy
movement patterns will be explored, as well as injury and modifications. Yoga philosophy, yoga lifestyle and ethics for yoga
teachers will be also be addressed. You will spend a significant amount of time practice teaching, receiving feedback, observing
other teaching and hearing/giving feedback. You will spend time assisting in the training and in class.
You will also have a requirement of non-contact hours of book reports, observing classes inside & outside the training
as well as assisting yoga classes. Reading will be a big piece of your self study. In order to become a powerful, well-equipped
teacher, you MUST be dedicated to your training, your practice, your reading & your study. This program meets the
Yoga Alliance (based in Pennsylvania) requirements to be 200 hour certified teacher under the Yoga Alliance as a
Registered Yoga Teacher. It is an optional certification. Most states do not require certification to teach Yoga
but require that teachers have 200 hrs of study in the field. Some gyms and other corporations require YA certification.
