Do I need to know anything about yoga before I sign up?
You definitely don’t need to be well-versed in yoga to participate in our training, but most people prefer to have some background in at least one style of yoga. We will provide a reading list and over the course of the teacher training, we will expose you to several different styles of yoga, meditation, philosophy, etc. We will also make some links to modern medicine and healthcare. The only thing we ask is that you come prepared to learn, be open-minded, and be present. One of our teachers says that the job of the student is to show up, in essence, be present for whatever you will experience.
What will we be learning during teacher training?
Students in the YogiAnatomy Teacher Training will gain knowledge and experiences in:
Ancient and contemporary science of yoga
Study of important texts and Sanskrit
Essence and science of asana, breath, meditation, and chanting
Application of anatomy and physiology to the practice of yoga
Skills for designing a yoga class for different types of students
Decision-making for integrating yoga into patients’ plans of care
Business & ethics of yoga
Art of client motivation, hands-on assists, verbal cueing, and use of props
Will there be any work or assignments outside of teacher training weekends?
Yes. During the months of teacher training students will be expected to practice asana and meditation regularly. We will provide a framework and guidance on how to incorporate the teachings into your daily life in an effort to fully embody the practices and appreciate their long-term effects. There will be some readings, some self-study, and some writing or journaling as part of the teacher training. All assignments are meant to further the study of yoga as a healthcare modality or wellness activity.
What will we be doing during the 4-day immersion?
The retreat format allows you to step out of your daily life and focus on the beginning of your yogic journey. In general, the teacher training immersion will include asana classes and asana labs during which we will break down the poses, look at alignment, and begin to learn some familiar yoga sequences. Meditation and breathing techniques will be integrated throughout as a stand-alone practice or within an asana class. The immersion retreat will also provide an opportunity to begin an exploration of relevant aspects of yogic philosophy as it applies to your own personal growth or for your clients.
Food and lodging at the Inn are included in your tuition.
Attendance at the immersion retreat is mandatory.
What will we be doing during the Zoom sessions?
There will be 3 Zoom sessions, each 90 minutes long on specific dates noted below. The Zoom sessions will be focused on aspects of yoga philosophy, review of material and provide an opportunity for participants to lead virtual discussions and practice. Given the focus on healthcare, we will also look at some of the relevant literature supporting the use of yoga for therapeutic conditions during our Zoom sessions.
