Students can join this program anytime, but the schedule traditionally begins each August and runs for a full year. (We release the schedules one year at a time, but for the purposes of personal planning, it is safe to assume the coursework listed below is generally offered in a similar way from year to year.)
 
Students who miss a unit due to travel or other issues can always substitute any of the schedule units with a weekend modular course offering instead to stay on track with the group and graduate within the year. Up to two substitutions are allowed, after which there is a modest fee for food that is a part of the weekend modular programs.
 
 
 
Required modules include: Yoga Philosophy 1: Yoga Sutras, Adv. Meditation, Adv. Pranayama, Chanting and Mudras, Advanced Teaching Skills, Intro to Yoga Therapy, Trauma Informed Yoga, Intro to Ayurveda, Advanced Anatomy, and the Teaching Practicum (Students will teach and receive feedback).
 
Electives that are assigned to this daytime program include: Yoga Nidra, Yoga for Seniors, Restorative Certification, Yin Certification, Yoga for Seniors.
 
Additional substitutions (Aerial or select yoga therapy units ) are available as an alternative to the electives.

Chair Yoga Certification
Oct 3, 2020 - Oct 4, 2020
 
This 20 hour certification will provide yoga teachers as well as health practitioners or individuals involved in senior fitness activities with a strong understanding of Chair Yoga: theory and practice. Participants will gain the skills required to bring yoga to students who might otherwise not be able to embrace a practice. (For those that are eligible RYT teachers, the 20 hours qualify for your continuing education credits.)
Along with the meditation, breathing, and relaxation techniques, you will learn how to adapt the classical Yoga asanas to the chair rather than the floor in a therapeutic context. Material is offered for students of a variety of skill levels and circumstances, but the emphasis is for mature adults and those with physical limitations that need a chair to make yoga accessible. The course reviews the physical limitations and problems that interfere with a traditional mat practice, helping a teacher understand the goals and benefits of chair yoga, while establishing a toolbox of postures and sequences for future classes. An anatomy segment focuses on deteriorating joints and common issues that senior clientele may be dealing with, such as HBP, Osteoporosis, Glycaemia, wrist weakness and loss of balance

A small portion of the seminar is devoted to more advanced yoga practice techniques to
explore how a chair can be incorporated into a traditional practice, geared toward fully-capable yogis, for the purposes of variety and new skill challenges or restorative yoga.

Since the circumstances (and thus the chairs) may vary for different teaching situations, we make available and encourage the attendees to explore different chairs, including wheelchairs, office chairs, balance balls, and traditional yoga chairs. A certificate in chair yoga is provided at the end of the course.

This course covers the physical, mental and spiritual effects of anxiety and depression, and yoga techniques and practices that can be applied to ease these states.
 
An understanding of Kleshas, Dukha and obstacles to living in balance help the yoga teacher lead students to develop a deeper awareness of the physical and emotional toll anxiety and depression has on one’s life and body, and to provide tools to ease the symptoms for clients, while also understanding the need to solve the underlying causes of these states and how yoga can be a part of the healing process.

Trauma Informed Yoga Teacher Training
Apr 8, 2021 - Apr 15, 2021
 

Trauma Informed Yoga reviews the science, practice, and special considerations necessary to support and prepare a yoga teacher to work with individuals affected by traumatic life events and/or PTSD. This course covers the origins of trauma and how they affect health and functionality, the basic theory and principals of trauma Informed yoga, anatomy of the nervous system and neuroplasticity. We also cover methods to support the unique needs of trauma affected individuals and their families. This is a 8 hour trauma yoga education course, but we offer recommendations for companion coursework in specific trauma circumstances (yoga for addiction, yoga for eating disorders, yoga for sexual abuse etc. as each area of study has unique considerations and needs that cannot be covered fully in a short weekend course.) This course is recommended for RYT-200 or above yoga teachers.

RYT-200 Immersion Program
Apr 11, 2021 - Apr 25, 2021
 

This Yoga Alliance Certification course unfolds at an accelerated rated rate in a 15 day format allowing students an opportunity to dive deeply into yoga and receive their certification in a progressive, inspirational way. We pace our day to sustain the longer hours comfortably, and a vegan lunch and dinner together is included, served on the grounds of Heartwood, affording us time to break bread together to connect as a tribe. This program includes Reiki level 1 training, aerial yoga certification as well. (Arrangements can be made to take the Aerial weekend on another session if the student is willing to return another time for the weekend course & students can substitute chair yoga for aerial if they are willing to return later for the course.) A beach outing day, gong meditations and more make this not only a training that leaves students feeling confident and qualified to teach yoga, but filled with deeper connections to self, life and yoga as well.
Affordable housing options are available and we will pick up from the airport the day prior between 10am and 8 pm if requested.

Course Fee Includes a meal plan. Vegetarian lunch, dinner and snacks. Housing is included for those that need it but space is extremely limited and given on a first come, first serve basis.

*** Please notify us if you are seeking space in our housing option or want help in finding an affordable place nearby.
