A good deal of time is spent on the art and the science of moving and instructing students into each posture in a way that fosters deeper body awareness, safety and accountability. With this knowledge not only will you gain the tools to transform your practice, you will also be empowered to help others do the same.
In addition to learning how to get into and hold each posture, you will learn how to safely and effectively adjust your students in a way that honors both their physical and energetic bodies, as well as your own.
Business of Yoga
Expect to spend time learning the ins and outs of this very important component to becoming an effective teacher. You will learn clear, thorough and very useful and practical ways to get your voice out there, make what you are worth and share your own unique gifts with those that need it the most. We will also cover how to move through this business with intergrity while staying true to your own authentic voice and needs.
Part of being a yoga teacher who really makes a difference is first knowing yourself and embracing all aspects with love, respect and compassion. We will spend time helping you travel deep inside to connect with your shadows, those limiting beliefs that are holding you back and an understanding of how your past can create a purposeful future.
This component is a very special and vital part of the training. Each student will work to raise $5,000 for our partner non-profit, buildOn. With these funds we will travel to Nicaragua to break ground on a school. Each weekend we will take time to check in and discuss the ups and downs of fundraising. The growth and transformation this part of the training offers is more than you may even imagine. Additional service project details here.
We will spend time diving into each Chakra, how to connect with and balance these specific energies. Cultivating Chakra awareness can influence every aspect of your life including: your relationships, your work, your creativity, the way you raise your children, they way you love, your relationship with money and your deeper vision of how you want your life to unfold.
We will dive into Yogic philosophy while often offering a modern spin to make it easier to apply to your current life. You will learn the origins of this practice, the Yoga Sutras and the Eight Limbs and Yoga in a way that is grounded and purposeful.
Other Pieces to the Training
You will be required to purchase and read a list of books to help deepen and expand what we will be learning in the training. Check back to see a complete list.
Each weekend you will receive homework to help integrate what we cover during the weekend. Some homework will be required and some will be optional.
For a dedicated yoga teacher, a steady and committed practice is vital. You will be required to attend twenty additional open classes to be completed in the eight months of the training (about 2.5 classes per month). These classes are to be split between Brittany and Maura and may also include workshops and retreats. Alternative options will be provided for those traveling out of the state to be a part of this training.
Quizzes, Final Exam and Final Projects
During the training you will receive a few quizzes to help us see how the information is landing. Towards the end of the training you will receive a take home final exam as well as a few other final projects. All of this is to help you deepen and integrate what you have been learning over the past eight months.
