Johns Creek Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training Program: Weekend Model
Deepen Your Own Practice: Most students find their way to teacher training because they have experienced the transformative effects of yoga in their lives and want to understand more about the practice. In this training, you will learn about the physical body, the energetic anatomy, the history of yoga, the philosophical and ethical precepts that underlie the practice, the psycho-social emotional benefits, and much more.
What You Will Learn
Skills for transformational teaching: Help your students develop a heightened body-awareness and self-awareness to deepen their practice on the mat, and teach them to carry those skills off the mat to enrich every aspect of their lives.
How to create inspirational and safe yoga classes: Develop skills for teaching inspirational yoga classes. Discover creative ways to warm-up and cool down the body; learn the benefits of classical yoga postures and how to weave them into posture sequences that make an exciting class; find ways to motivate students and safely pace your class according to students’ skill levels and experience, including how to offer modifications, posture options, clarification of contraindications, and how to create lesson plans for varying levels of difficulty.
Principles of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology: Focus on safety, joint movement, range of motion, and a functional understanding of skeletomuscular systems and structures.
Pranayama techniques: Enable your students to experience body-mind integration and purification through yogic breathing, and teach them to connect consciously with prana, or life force—the inherent wisdom of the body. Learn and practice creative ways of incorporating various methods of pranayama into your posture sequences.
Relaxation and meditation methodology: Gain skills for centering yourself and your students, creating sacred space, and guiding the class in a deeply restorative Savasana.
