Module 1 must be taken before Module 2. Module 1 offers insight into various yoga lineages, philosophy, and methods of teaching. The lineages we will explore are Ashtanga, Kundalini, Jivamukti, Prana Flow, and Power Yoga. You will begin with these various methods of yoga before focusing on one type of class in which you would like to teach. Module 2 refines your ability to teach a class with intelligent sequencing by focusing on one type of yoga. In the spring of 2013 we are offering Module 2 Hot, which will equip you to teach a strong, safe, and intelligent hot class. In the fall we will offer Module 2 Vinyasa, which will equip you to teach a strong, safe and intelligent Vinyasa class.
Module 1 will be co taught by Sarah Kline, Niki Sue Mueller and Louise Sanseau.
Module 2 will be co taught by Cameron Barker and Louise Sanseau
Other Inversion teachers will be assisting throughout the training.

Why Take A Yoga Teacher Training?
There are a vast number of reasons for why anyone takes a yoga teacher training program. Perhaps you simply want to learn more about yoga and more about yourself. Perhaps you want to start teaching yoga! Perhaps you do not know why you are drawn to it, but you cannot shake the idea of participating in the training. For whatever reason, a basic 200-hour teacher training is a great way to flood your mind with stimulating thought and your body with healthy life practices.
The general rule of thumb with teaching anything is to teach what you know. Thus, the first step towards learning how to teach yoga is to look at and to explore your experience within your practice, your exploration of yoga postures, and your experience within your body and breath. This is an inward exploration. Our intention is to equip you with an in-depth study into various lineages of yoga, the anatomy and physiology of yoga and the body, yoga philosophy, class sequencing and methodology, and overall teaching and adjusting techniques. However, a good teacher comes from experience, so the sooner you can begin the process the better!
This 200-hour training will teach you about yoga and about yourself, will deepen your self-practice, and may open doors to opportunities you previously did not have or could not see. The experience builds confidence in your voice, clarity in thought, and willpower and stamina to complete 200 hours of rigorous practice and study in 28 days! This training is a physical, mental and financial commitment. The physical practice is rigorous; we are cramming a lot of information into a short amount of time. If you are pregnant, injured, or limited in anyway you are always welcome to modify in the practice and do what you need to do for your body and health throughout the course of the training. Please know and respect your body.
This training is an opportunity to learn and we expect you to: listen to yourself, risk failure, embrace your mistakes and learn from them, try new things, build confidence, learn from others, deepen your awareness, establish a degree of mental clarity, show up eager to learn, and ask for help. We are here to support you!
