Course Description

Foundations of Practice
When teaching rises from experience of the practice, it holds a great level of integrity. Deepening your personal asana, pranayama, and meditation practice will provide the richest source of inspiration. When you discover the mechanics of your unique needs within the asana practice, it will lead you to understand the needs of your future students. Additional training in functional anatomy, energetic body study, and understanding the ego and its purpose will provide the balancing factors for well-rounded learning.

  • Intensive asana study
  • Energetic body systems
  • Your personal Anatomy and Physiology
  • Pranayama groundwork
  • Meditation

Philosophy of Yoga
Our program lineage stems from the teachings of Patanjali. Along with the asana and pranayama, we will study the Eight Limb path on a daily bases, most specifically the Yamas and Niyamas. These ‘codes for living’ help you refine your relationship with yourself, and your relationship with the world. Further study of the Yoga Sutras will expose you to an unending world of investigation into the deepest Truths of Yoga.

Foundations of Teaching
Teaching is the integration of intuition, knowledge, skill, and compassion. To inspire another is a great gift, and this inspiration must be founded on personal integrity and clear intention. Developing these attributes requires trust from both aspiring teacher and acting advisor. This journey includes the following.
