Developing a Strong Personal Practice
• Practical teaching
A big emphasis is placed on practical teaching, so our teaching students graduate as confident, articulate and capable teachers, ready to share their love of yoga with the wider community.
• Class size
Classes are small and there is plenty of personal assistance where needed and encouragement to explore yoga to its fullest.
• Yoga heritage
The style draws from the authentic classical schools of yoga, mainly Sivananda and Krishnamarcharya, and is relevant to our contemporary lifestyle. Graduating students have been sought out to teach in community groups – even before graduating – as this style of yoga has been noted for its focus on safety and alignment, and it’s relevance and adaptability to teach students of all ages and in all states of health. The aim is to help every student feel well and to maintain an active, healthy lifestyle – physically, mentally & spiritually.
• Anatomy and Physiology components
The YTT Program includes an online component of 20 hours with leading Anatomy and Physiology teachers, Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews of the Breathing Project NYC. Leslie & Amy take anatomy out of the textbook and make it an experiential subject, which greatly assists students to “find their voice” when giving clear instructions on coming into and out of yoga asana in a safe manner. http://yogaanatomy.net/
Our Philosophy curriculum has been written by world leading scholar of the Yoga Tradition and translations of yogic scriptures, Georg Feuerstein. Georg, like the Indian Rishis’ of the past and present, reveals through his texts that yoga is not something we do, but something we become. “Yoga without the yogi’s all comprehending consciousness is like the sun without heat and light.” His manuals should become a set standard for all authentic Yoga Teacher Training programs! http://www.traditionalyogastudies.com/
