Three Week Training Intensive

During the training intensive, your study and practice will focus on the following areas:

Daily Asana, Breathing, Relaxation, and Meditation Practice

A strong personal practice will inform and develop your teaching. You will participate in a daily morning practice consisting of yoga asana, yogic breathing, systematic relaxation, seated breath awareness and meditation to help you to further develop and deepen your own personal practice, and to directly experience and apply the concepts you are learning to yourself.

Anatomy and Physiology

Learn the basics of anatomy and physiology concepts in order to have an understanding of how the human body works in relation to yoga asana. These sessions will include engaging experiential and partner work.

Teaching Methods

Using our time-tested systematic approach to teaching, you will learn how to teach safely, clearly, and effectively by working with practice teaching in groups. This unique approach will provide a supportive blueprint for instructing and sequencing so that you can leave the training intensive with the tools and confidence you will need to begin teaching immediately.

Diaphragmatic Breath Training and Pranayama

Develop your own personal relationship with breathing using an understanding of respiratory anatomy and physiology as a foundation for experiencing the immense transformative power of the breath. You will discover how specific breath training practices help to strengthen the diaphragm, balance the nervous system, and serve as an important foundation for pranayama practice. Experience how optimal yogic breathing supports overall health, well-being, and spiritual unfoldment.

Systematic Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation exercises form the bridge between hatha yoga and meditation practices. Discover how these practices help the mind and body assimilate the benefits of yoga postures while relieving stress, balancing the nervous system, and increasing subtle awareness.

Meditation Techniques

Discover the essentials of yogic meditation, including how to establish a comfortable and stable sitting posture and the role of breathing in meditation practice. You will also experience a simple, practical process of specific techniques designed to help the mind focus and become more inward.

Subtle Body Anatomy

Experience the power of prana—your own vital life force—in practice, and how to deepen your own awareness and experience of this potent healing force. Learn about the importance of subtle body anatomy, including chakras, and how to apply this knowledge to your own practice and teaching in a practical and grounded way.

Yoga Philosophy

A solid understanding of yoga philosophy will expand and deepen the experience of asana and infuse inspiration and meaning into your practice and teaching. Familiarize yourself with the core concepts of key foundational yogic texts: Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and The Bhagavad Gita. Learn how these ancient texts are now more relevant to modern life and teaching than ever.

Ayurveda: Diet and Lifestyle

A foundational understanding and practice of the science of ayurveda will compliment and empower your yoga practice and teaching. Discover the essential foundational concepts of ayurveda, including how to implement specific diet and lifestyle practices to support seasonal and life changes as well as to pacify imbalance.
