This 5-day course is designed for teachers aspiring to improve their teaching and personal practice. It is for those who are ready to move deeper within themselves. The aim of the training is to make you a more skillful, passionate, compassionate and intelligent teacher, so you are better equipped to deal with whatever challenges you and your students may face.
You will be coached to teach from who you are, learn to work with injuries, and skillfully work with verbal assisting.
This course fulfills 35 hours of CE credits with Yoga Alliance.
The objective of this teacher training is to encourage trainees to develop as individuals as well as to make you a more skilled, intelligent, and authentic teacher. Awareness is a vital component when developing the skills necessary to teach from your own found truths. Through daily meditation, intensives and group instruction, trainees begin to discover their authentic voice which leads to a more authentic life.
Each day starts off with a ceremony involving meditation to set the intent for the day and create the space for healing and connection, followed by a 2-hour intensive that will create a heightened sense of physical, emotional and spiritual awareness while challenging every muscle and cell in your body. Through a carefully sequenced Forrest Yoga asanas, you can open to amazing depths. You will leave feeling cleansed, refreshed and alive. The intensives are a sanctuary where you can go beyond your perceived limitations. Injuries and special needs are addressed so that each trainee experiences these classes as part of his or her own healing practice. The afternoons encompass 4-hour sessions of training and instruction. Using skill-building exercises, trainees will work with the essential elements of teaching, such as: class sequencing, explore optimal personal nutrition, work with sadhanas (spiritual exercises), learn about personal and professional ethics, effective pose sequencing, and effective clear, concise and powerful communication, eliminating mind-dulling habitual phrases, and tone of voice as well as the continued development of a more charismatic presence and honesty in your class.
