OUR PHILOSOPHY 

We believe the true art of teaching lies in marrying your ability to skillfully teach asana, meditation and pranayama with your capacity to share, inspire, motivate, encourage and truly offer all your uniqueness to others. Drawing from a combined teaching experience of more than 10 years and a mutual love for our profession we’ve developed a training that will help you grow those skill with finesse and refinement. “The Art of Yoga” is a professional training designed for serious practitioners who want to deepen their practice and knowledge and for future teachers who want to teach skillful, potent and heartfelt classes that make a difference in the world.

We believe that good teaching starts with your own learning and so we’ve created an environment that is instrumental for your growth over the 12 month of the “The Art of Yoga” 200 hour Teacher Training. Only limited number of trainees per training, experienced teachers present, specifically developed teaching modules that go beyond Yoga Alliance standards for a 200hrs training and minimum requirements for applicants ensure you get a state of the art training that is inspiring and personal.

TT COURSE OUTLINE 

Yoga Skills
During this training you will learn, deepen and refine your skills in teaching yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, bandhas, mudras and kriyas. We’ll work on the basics first, so you can develop your understanding of the core curriculum and teach in a safe way. Progressively we’ll integrate more and more precision and nuances so you can teach with more confidence and depth.

Knowing your Yoga Body
“The Art of Yoga” 200 hour Teacher Training will provide you with a solid knowledge of yoga related anatomy & physiology training. Understanding the architecture and functions of the physical body as well as the subtle bodies and how they relate to asana, meditation and pranayama is what will give you confidence in your teachings as well as providing you with the ability to better align your classes to your student’s needs.

Relevant and Authentic Philosophy
Philosophy and theming are close allies as they both give your teaching depth. Learning about yogic philosophy, history and ethics will help you gain understanding and confidence as a teacher, providing you with a backdrop for your themes and inspire you and your students for an ethical yogic lifestyle. Whether ancient or recent, yogic philosophy is what takes this practice off the mat and into your life.

The Art of Yoga Teaching
A good teacher is not only defined by what he knows but by their ability to connect to students and share the material in a meaningful and relevant way. We’ve dedicated an entire module on these soft skills that will transform your teachings. You’ll learn how to approach the sequencing process, develop powerful class and workshop themes that are close to your heart and learn different approaches to hands-on-assists as well as safety standards and appropriateness. A great deal of this training focuses on helping you refining your own voice, developing potent verbal cues and forging your presence as a teacher. You’ll get plenty of teaching practice within this training along with practical feedback and time to refine and hone your teaching skills until you feel confident in your own teaching style.

Self-Practice

Your practice is your foundation, your real teacher. In the training, your practice will be deepened. You will keep a journal of your practice, so you and the teachers can follow your progress. You will commit to practicing daily asana, pranayama, kriyas and meditation. Your practice will integrate into your personality, will open your mind and your heart and this will bring you to higher states of awareness. What you practice, you will understand. What you understand, you will be able to teach.

Teaching Yoga

This is a practical course. Rather than being taught how to teach, you will learn how to teach by doing it. From the very beginning, you will be asked to work with the other students, in groups, on teaching assignments.  You will also learn by observing and assisting other teachers — in the training and in other classes. During the period of the course we will give you practical tools to build up and feel confident in teaching a beginners’ class.

 Your Seat as a Teacher & Life Vision
If you aspire to a happy, long-lasting and professional yoga teacher life, you’ve got to have an idea of what you want your ideal life as a teacher but also as a private person to look like. In this training we’ll help you find your own unique vision and help you create a sound and inspiring plan to get there in no time. This module is all about learning how to create a truly balanced, inspired and sustainable life on and off the mat.

The Business of Yoga
Truly great teachers teach because they are passionate about yoga. It’s never about the money itself but making a difference. If you want to make a difference for a very long time and avoid emotional & financial burn-out down the road, it’s important to pay attention right from the start and develop some healthy business and marketing skills. Nothing crazy but simply aligning your goals on and off the mat, creating a sound strategy for your first classes right after TT and holding a vision for months to come.
