This training is appropriate for those who have already completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training.
Becoming an advanced student and teacher means, first and foremost, mastering the fundamentals.
Advancing also means moving forward.
In this training, we will work together in community to advance our understanding of yoga.
Hala Khouri will lead from her experience in trauma-informed yoga, so that we can envision and create a future of yoga practice that truly embodies ahimsa: non-harming.
Jules Mitchell will bring us the most recent developments in the science of biomechanics, so that instead of relying out outdated models, we can use the most current information about how the body functions and how we appropriately apply force in the practice of yoga asana.
There will also be plenty of time to discuss yoga philosophy and practice teaching.
Dan Ward 200 hour YTT - January 5 - March 10, 2024
Let’s get down to brass tacks as we break down the fundamentals of the yoga practice.
The poses: how to practice and teach the building blocks of the yoga practice
The sequences: put the pieces together for maximum desired effect. Learn why tried and true formulas work and also be inspired to innovate based on your personal experience.
The philosophy: learn the essential underpinning of the yoga practice. Understand why yogic thought has endured over thousands of years (at least!)
The history: get clued in to where yoga came from and how it has evolved, adapted and been reimagined over time.
The ethics: wise up on how to practice and teach yoga for the right reasons and in a proper manner.
The business: get the lay of the land of today’s yoga scene and learn how to approach the real world issues that arise in teaching yoga in a capitalist system.
The teaching: by the end of training, you’ll create a class and teach it to your fellow trainees.
The community: bond with people locally and all over the world in a hybrid training that allows a group to get to know each other and BE THERE for each other on our seekers’ journey.
