Why Train with Spirit of Yoga?
Advanced Yoga Teacher Training gives you a broader and deeper set of skills and insights to bring into your practice and teaching. The advanced element of the training is not about advanced asanas. It is about developing an advanced understanding of how to effectively teach asana, pranayama and meditation to all levels and types of students. You will consider each of these topics in detail as part of your ongoing development as a professional yoga teacher.
This program asks for your full commitment to being on the path of the teacher, starting with an active personal practice and teaching. There are several requirements but also considerable freedom to choose specific areas for deep study and training.
Teaching methods include: lectures, experiential classes, small and large group work, practice teaching time, exercises for learning and discovery, lectures and review of homework.
Asana sessions are taught by Maggie, occasionally assisted by other qualified teachers.
The course content covers the following general areas:
- Asana Technique & Teaching Methods
- Practical Yoga History & Philosophy
- Practical Yoga Anatomy
- Advanced Class Planning & Sequencing
- Teaching Pranayama
- Subtle Energy & Anatomy
- Meditation Practices
- The Art of Seeing & Relating
- Demonstrating & Cuing
- Practice Teaching
- Lifestyle & Ethics
- The Profession & Business of Yoga
Ideally students will have:
- 300-Hour yoga teacher certification from a credible source.
- Minimum of one year of teaching experience or equivalent. Provide proof of this.
