shared / private room
2 residential retreats
Our program is an in-depth, transforming teacher training laid out in 2 residential retreats of 9 nights/10 days, over the span of 6 months.
It covers well beyond the 200 hrs requirements set by Yoga Alliance, since we believe that becoming a teacher capable of sharing yoga requires commitment, passion and energy (and definitely more than 200 hrs of study). Hence, our program is really a 6-months course of study. During the non-contact weeks, you will be tutored by the teachers, and you will have time to read, teach, and study at your own pace. Our physical practice is strongly grounded in the understanding of anatomy, hence during the 6 months you are required to watch and complete the quiz for a 20 hrs online course on Anatomy for Yoga. This provides a further deepening of the topics that we explore during the classes on Anatomy applied to yoga poses that we teach in the residential weeks.
During the days between the first and second residential retreat the students have to submit short videos of themselves teaching simple sequences. They will receive feedbacks from the teacher for the videos they send, which is an invaluable tool of growth, since it helps tremendously the student to polish their cues, improve the energetic alignment expressed in the poses and their overall sequencing ability.
The students keep in touch between themselves through a private Facebook group which is a great platform to share, inform and grow our community.
In between the first and second week the students are required to collect 20 hrs of teaching. We strongly encourage the students to teach family members, friends or for free at local community centers to get practical experience teaching diverse populations.
The students need to keep a journal of the sequences they teach and possibly film the classes so that they can watch them afterwards for feedbacks. Students are welcomed to share their teaching experiences in our private facebook group.
This training is registered with Yoga Alliance.
