What to Expect

Each morning is dedicated to your practice. Morning pranayama, meditation and asana intensives (Shiva Salutations) from 7:00am-10:00am are a required part of each module, and help students connect into their own practice as a platform for growth as a teacher.

You’ll simultaneously deepen your practice by working on advanced postures and their modifications, learning to work with your own body in a more skillful, effective, and efficient way in order to build depth in your practice for years to come.

Afternoon sessions help students create a vision for their life and teaching career, and build the support system for success. You will work on every aspect of teaching, from learning greater depth in anatomy, injury prevention, and intelligent sequencing for each region of the body to using purposeful, impactful language when you provide instructions. You will also generate sequences and teach segments of classes to receive direct feedback and guidance so you become a more knowledge, confident, and insightful teacher. Each module focuses on the foundations of this support, as well as the physical and emotional aspects of the yoga practice, giving teachers necessary tools to teach and work with a wide range of student populations.
