200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training - Starting February 2019

Workshop | posted on Dec 10, 2018
YogaSource Palo Alto is proud to announce its first Yoga Teacher Training in downtown Palo Alto! Join us for 11 weekends from February to June 2019 to advance your practice, cultivate equanimity, and journey into teaching!

This foundational 200-Hour training, accredited by Yoga Alliance, is designed to give students a deeper understanding of the 8 limbs of yoga, including the philosophy, pranayama, meditation, and asana — as well as provide students with tools to develop their own equanimity, sense of self, and authentic voice. On that foundation, students will begin to explore the vast pedagogy of yoga, build skills think critically about the practices of yoga, and teach others using a simple, methodical approach. Students will practice advanced alignment-based asana each morning and dive into discussions, lectures, and hands-on skills labs each afternoon.
 
Topics Covered:
  • Advanced asana, pranayama, and meditation practices
  • Functional anatomy and physiology of the whole body
  • Injury prevention and recovery for teachers and students
  • Smart, logical, and purposeful sequencing
  • Subtle body anatomy and traditional eastern healing systems
  • Finding your voice as a teacher and developing clear, concise cues
  • Detailed alignment of commonly taught postures, as well as modifications and benefits
  • Pedagogy of yoga, and how to instruct with inquiry and encourage active learning
  • Teaching skills, including how to use hands-on adjustments and keep students safe
  • History of yoga and the influence of different cultures on yogic practices
  • Philosophy of yoga including the Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita, and Vedic Texts
  • Modern application of yoga and teaching to special populations
