200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training: Immersion plus 5 Weekends 2019
Oct 11, 2019 - Oct 11, 2019
Part One: Into the Heart of the Lotus: Immersion
October 11-17, 2019, The Art of Living Retreat Center, Boone, North Carolina

For thousands of years, the lotus flower has symbolized enlightenment…the ability of the spirit or soul to transcend the muddy waters of physical embodiment. Whether you realize it or not, your yoga practice has been inviting you to do just that, to awaken a deep and sustaining relationship to your true Self, that aspect of you that is infinite, eternal and always whole. This connection brings new found peace, equanimity and mindfulness to the foreground of your life.
In this first part of our training, you will dive into a deeper experience of your yoga practice and awaken a profound connection to your own soul. We will travel to the beautiful Art of Living Retreat Center in Boone, NC so that you can disconnect from the responsibilities of your daily life and focus your attention completely on the inner work of meeting yourself anew. For 9 days and 8 nights, we will practice yoga, meditation and pranayama and learn the history and philosophy of Yoga that informs our practice.
You will have full access to all of the benefits of a world class retreat center, including an incredible Ayurvedic Spa, Hiking Trails, nightly Kirtan, comfortable accomodations, 3 vegetarian meals a day and much more.
Part II: Sharing the Lessons of the Lotus: Teaching from the Radiance of Your Experience
In Part Two you will learn
  • How to 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 teaching 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.
To achieve certification you must attend all sessions.
