The world of yoga has many fascinating areas that can leave the practitioner awestruck at the idea of creation, personal dharma (purpose), and innate potential. The 500-hour certification program is perfect for students that already have a 200-hour foundation and are looking to develop in their own way.
This program has two different pathways. Our Modular Program and our 4-week Intensive.
Perhaps the most common comment we hear from students after they finish the 200-hour program is that they really miss having their classes evaluated. It is not too often you get a lot of feedback on your classes after you go out into the world and start teaching.
For this reason, we have created a 4-week teacher training intensive that provides a lot of direct teaching opportunities, feedback, and support in refining your teaching skills.
This annual course is a perfect accelerated track for students who are looking to improve as vinyasa teachers. Students of this course must be prepared to teach and be evaluated in a safe and supportive environment.
In this learning-intensive, students come to the course prepared with ideas and sequencing structures that our instructors can work with. Daily presentations allow participants to get used to being seen.
This is a teaching boot camp of sorts where students are constantly developing their presentations with our master teachers, being supported in their ideas, and given ample opportunity to teach the daily assignments.
Find your voice, let yourself be seen, and learn to love all aspects of teaching.
Why, how it adds value, relating abstract concepts, weaving in philosophy.
