Our comprehensive teacher training fully covers the fundamentals of yoga philosophy, teaching methods, specific techniques for working with a diverse array of students in all aspects of postural, breathing, and meditation. We begin with the question, “What is yoga?” We then fully explore the interwoven threads of a holistic and integrated practice and how best to share it with others.
Asana Technique & Teaching Methods: The most extensive part of the course, here you will learn in detail an array of different yoga poses, including alignment principles, energetic actions, risks, benefits, preparatory asanas, counterposes, variations, modifications, hands-on adjustments, and use of props for each one. This part of the course covers the major families of asanas: Sun Salutations, Standing Poses, Backbends, Forward Bends, Twists, Arm Balances, Inversions, Core Refinement, and Hip Openers.
Practical Yoga History & Philosophy: An overview of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (not just the Eight Limbs but Patanjali’s philosophy of spiritual psychology) and contemporary yoga philosophy.
Practical Yoga Anatomy: A hands-on introduction to functional anatomy of movement as applied to seeing students in the practice and guiding them in a meaningful, safe, and effective way.
Planning & Sequencing Classes: The art and science of sequencing families of asanas and crafting entire classes, including for different levels of students, different intentions, styles and other considerations. Here we also cover pacing, duration, tempo, and vibe for different levels and intentions of classes.
Teaching Pranayama: Basic and intermediate pranayama techniques, including how, when, and whom to teach basic yoga breathing (ujayi pranayama) and more intermediate pranayama techniques (including kapalabhati, bastrika, sitali, sitkari and nadi shodhana).
Subtle Energy & Anatomy: Awareness and activation of subtle energy, including how to cultivate bandhas and the relationship between pranayama, bandhas, and the elements of yogic anatomy, including koshas, chakras, nadis, and gunas.
Meditation Practices: In meditation, we explore how to bring meditation into yoga classes and everyday life in a way that is simple, accessible, and sustainable. We explore several meditation techniques.
Demonstrating & Cuing: Here we focus on when, where, and how to most effectively demonstrate yoga poses while giving the clearest, most understandable verbal and hands-on guidance to students. Qualities of voice, including language, tone, and audibility, are given close attention.
Hands-On Adjustments: We go deeply into the full range of hands-on adjustments, an essential skill for all yoga teachers. It begins with an in-depth consideration of the principles of tactile cues, and then looks at specific techniques for guiding students.
Making Yoga Meaningful: Why do you do yoga? What are the core values at the heart of your practice? How can you best be true to your values while holding space for others and their values in your classes? How might you best create space in class and provide guidance to students in making their yoga experience more meaningful.
Practice Teaching: From the very beginning of this course, you will work to teach classes.
Lifestyle & Ethics: How we live our larger lives off the mat, including personal yoga practice, nutrition, sleep, relations with family and friends, and being in community are essential aspects of deepening our yoga and sharing it with dignity and integrity.
The Profession & Business of Yoga: This covers the role of the teacher, getting yourself established as a professional yoga teacher, and being successful in teaching yoga as your source of livelihood.

“We have made the decision not to affiliate with Yoga Alliance. It is our belief that the Yoga Alliance organization is far too removed from what is actually happening on the ground, within the yoga community, to have any appreciation or understanding of what it truly means to be a successful, respected instructor.”
