Teacher Training 200/Carmel

Awaken the teacher within

Teaching yoga is so much more than learning a series of asana. Yoga allows us to embrace everyday experiences and turn them into deep changes in our everyday lives. Confidence, self-worth, and emotional balance are revealed as we embody the essence of unity within. This unique training is grounded in anatomy and yoga therapy with direct application to students with many levels of abilities, injuries and intentions. We employ an active learning approach with a focus on specific areas of study. Working from the myriad tools of yoga therapy this course steps out of the classical and the rote and into new beginnings giving teachers a deep understanding of balancing the many layers of our being.
