Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice with incredible relevance in the modern world. With an excess of tension and worries, discomforts and uneasiness, fear and phobias, our students need a vehicle to connect deeply to their true nature, to peace, health, and self-awareness. This increased self-awareness helps us to remain detached and calm amidst the chaos of our daily lives. Yoga Nidra provides a path for rediscovery of our true nature and the many benefits that can be realized from its practice.

Curriculum Includes:

• Introduction to Yoga Nidra

• History and origin

• Importance and purpose

• Similarities and differences between Yoga Nidra and Savasana

• Pre-practices to enhance the Yoga Nidra journey

• Importance of sankalpa and how to define the sankalpa in Yoga Nidra

• Intelligence behind the sequencing

• Components of Yoga Nidra

• Role of voice modulation in guiding Yoga Nidra

• Role of imagery and visualization

An opportunity to join a special group of both aspiring and experienced yoga teachers and serious students who are ready to deepen their practice and transform themselves into more effective and creative flow yoga teachers.

Bhakti means devotion to something higher than just ourselves. Whether it be toward a relationship, a family, a community, future generations or all beings, Bhakti is essentially the development of compassion, love, gratitude and equanimity.
Vinyasa means to move skillfully with the breath. It is a set of principles that can help us accept where we are now so that we can move with integrity, from one posture to the next in a flowing yoga sequence and toward optimal well-being.
These intensive yoga teacher trainings will inspire or re-inspire the fundamentals of vinyasa flow yoga with a devotional aspect that will awaken the heart to love and peace. Students looking to become teachers, students who are currently teachers with or without previous training, or students simply having the desire to deepen their practice, will find this course inspiring and practical.


Curriculum:

How to design and teach dynamic sequences
Teaching Ujjayi breathing in a steady flow
5 Bandhas for optimal alignment
Hands-on assists
Mantras for empowerment
9 Kinds of Bhakti Deepen your personal practice as you gain insight into your own creative flow


Requirements:

A passion for yoga
A desire to deepen your own practice
A daily yoga practice as of today!
A minimum of 12 months practicing yoga, any style, with a qualified teacher.

In this training we will learn and refine our teaching language, sequencing, and imagination to improve our classes.

This 5-day workshop will show you how to align your core beliefs with your teaching, giving you the confidence and persistence to plan inspiring yoga classes with your own unique themes. We are often afraid to take ourselves out of our comfort zones and embrace challenges. However, the key to a successful yoga class is learning how to convey inspiring themes that not only uplift the students, but that also allow the teacher to continue to grow. This understanding of how our belief in the outcome of our success directly affects our performance is what educators, teachers, and neurologists are now calling growth mindset.

You will learn how to achieve a growth mindset and apply these principles to your own lives inside and outside the classroom. You will learn many techniques to improve your teaching, such as how verbal cueing directly connects to the overarching theme and the breath. We will explore the power of setting an intention or goal for your own practice, in your classes and in your life. You will leave this training with many examples of how to create a theme-based yoga class, but also with the tools to approach every aspect of your life with a growth mindset.

Curriculum Objectives:
Study your own yoga practice and habitual behavior.

Empower yourself so that you can empower your students.

Explore what is truly important as a yoga teacher to you.

Learn the power of simply setting up a classroom.

Transference and counter transference.

Discover how to keep your teaching simple.

Learn the “So What Mantra” — the mantra of the teacher.

Explore natural breath vs. breath exercises and when is it appropriate to teach which style.

Teach clearly and specifically with confidence and compassion.

Deepen understanding of sequencing and how to do a successful demonstration for students.

Take your language and verbal cues as a teacher to a new level, so you are clearer and more effective in becoming a safer yoga teacher.

Learn safe alignment and adjustments for all body types.

Theme development: learn to bring a theme into your classes in a powerful down-to-earth way.

Sharpen your understanding of teaching meditation in a classroom environment.

Question and answer sessions.

What are Advanced Study Modules?

Benefits-05We’ve built our Advanced Study Modular Program around the drop-in concept. There are 11 required modules you need to take, each lasting anywhere from 2-5 days long, generally over a weekend. Modules are taught either by one of our experienced staff members or an international yoga teacher. We bring some of the biggest names in the industry to our studio and programs. In this very flexible modular program, you get to decide which particular module you take, at what time and taught by whom. And you have 5 years to complete 11 modules (some students do it within 2 years though). Modules are generally open to the public as well, so you will be joined by experienced teachers as well as aspiring enthusiasts. Modules can be taken by someone not going after a 300 Hour Certification–though if they decide later to pursue the 300 Hour Certification, they can retroactively include the modules they’ve already taken in the past 12 months only.
