Become an Extraordinary Teacher
Taught by Forrest Yoga Guardians Charlie Speller and Ilias Kousis, this comprehensive program teaches you how to become an extraordinary teacher, leader, and human being. You will develop your unique gifts as a powerful, authentic and passionate teacher and learn how to use them with skill and grace to support your students, yourself and your newly growing community. You will leave this training feeling inspired and confident in your knowledge, methodology, and unique teaching voice as a Forrest Yoga teacher. You then start your life afresh, with a renewed sense of hope and the tools required to begin living in a way that makes you most proud of yourself.
Yoga as a healing path
Learn the tools to take control of your life and rid your cells of unwanted pain, suffering, and trauma. Then you can bring the same healing to your students.
Walking the path of your Spirit
Find your Spirit, connect to your Spirit, and take the actions that strengthen that connection. This awareness guides you to teach from the truths you discover rather than from a dogma.
Teaching through discovery
You will participate in a tightly woven circle of teaching modalities including lecture, videotaping, group processes, practice teaching and partner work that provide a path for learning and self-discovery
Functional Anatomy & Physiology
An integral component of the training is the Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers course, taught by Forrest Yoga Guardian, Bodyworker and Anatomist, Brian Campbell. The anatomy course is offered online as a recording, which you can watch at your own convenience. It will be available to you right after the completion of the first module. It is required that you complete watching it before the start of the second module.
Forrest Yoga Business Course
Taught by Forrest Yoga Guardian Charlie Speller with a background in the business side of yoga, this 1-day module will teach you the skills to envision your personal mission, define your niche, find teaching jobs and organize yourself clearly in the business arena of your life.
Group virtual meet-ups
There will be bonus online meetings between the two modules in order to stay connected together as a group.
