200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training Course
With David Lurey, Mirjam Wagner and Staff
Sunday February 6 – Saturday March 5, 2011
This month long intensive course is designed to build a solid foundation in the practice of Vinyasa Yoga.
Daily asana practices will explore various aspects of Vinyasa with a wide range of sequences and focuses…and lots of lunges and inversions!
The 2011 course will be the 3rd year in a row for this training. I will accept 34 students to the course and it will prove to be an international group experience that will open all participants to the vast expansiveness that is the world of Yoga.
With anatomy and physiology of asanas study, we will deepen the awareness of the body, mind, spirit connection in preparation for you to take your practice to the world and as a teacher. The program will help you develop a deep personal practice to inform your teaching as well provide the the skills to be a great yoga teacher. There will be lots of practice teaching, group evaluations and feedback to help you discover and fine tune your teaching voice.
In addition to the Asana practice, this training is a transformational experience that includes group dynamic work, personal coaching as well as interactive games and exercises that are designed to open you to new areas of awareness and integration of Yogic principles into daily life. This course is specifically designed to bring forth the highest qualities in students and to reveal the hidden places that often hold us back from our deepest potential.
