Will there be any work or assignments outside of teacher training weekends?

Yes.  During the 6 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.  Students will also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with their choice of core faculty to delve deeper into a subject of their choice.  These meetings will take place outside of regular teacher training hours.

Do I need to know anything about yoga before I sign up?

No, you definitely don’t need to know anything about yoga to participate but most people prefer to have some background. We will provide a reading list and over the course of the teacher training 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 doing each weekend?

The specific schedule for each weekend will be shared with you during our December weekend retreat.  The faculty will all be present and you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get clarification on the expectations for the YogiAnatomy teacher training.

In general, the teacher training weekends will include asana classes and asana labs during which we will break down the poses, look at alignment, and give students a chance to teach each other.  Meditation and breathing techniques will be integrated throughout the weekend as a stand-a-lone practice or within an asana class.  Each weekend will also provide an opportunity to discuss relevant aspects of yogic philosophy.

Given the focus on healthcare, we will also look at some of the relevant literature supporting the use of yoga for therapeutic conditions.
