Teacher Training yogaview

Spring 2017 join Sara Strother for a 40 hour Advanced Teachers Intensive. Throughout this training students will enrich and build upon the foundations of yoga and learn to define for themselves the art of teaching.

Diverse backgrounds will come together to share in the love of yoga and gather a skill set to bring to their communities. This condensed and comprehensive course will compliment any previous teacher training. Teaching experience is preferred for this intensive but it is open to students looking to dive into their personal studies.

The Advanced Intensive is aimed at providing teachers with the necessary skills to handle the multifaceted realm of teaching and studentship. Through lecture, practice and an interdisciplinary practicum, graduates from this training will become steadfast in their ability to teach in a more empowered way and have resources for continued education. Trainees will learn how to see beyond the basic shape of postures in order to refine and conduct a class in the most efficacious way. Trainees will be taught how to navigate the classroom with consistency, clarity, and adherence to their own dharma. You will expand your knowledge of core principles within various yoga lineages, kinesiology, and teaching methods throughout the course of this training.

Topics Examined:

-tantrik and classical yoga philosophies

-the enhancement of asana through posture and sequence studies

-alignment and kinesiology

-teaching methodology

-advanced prop usage and adjustments

-classroom organization, ritual, and theme integration

-cultivating a personal practice and resources for enhancing your skill set
