The Art of Teaching Meditation (10hr training)
Hands-on Assists (10hr training) with Amber Henzi & Cindy Walker
Physical adjustment is a direct and personal form of communication. Healing touch is a modality that can change lives. Done well, both can be transformational — creating positive teaching patterns, building a strong mind-body connections, and strengthening yogic awareness for your students. Join us for a two day exploration into the various families of postures, and how you as a teacher can use your hands to help your students intensify their focus, alignment, strength, therapeutic and spiritual experience. Saturday will review the gentle side of postures, and Sunday will focus on the vinyasa / power side of hands on assists.
This training counts as 10 hours towards the 300/500 hour program.

The Mind on the Mat: Yoga, Emotions & The Personality (10 hour training)
Touching down upon your yoga mat, you begin to feel your body with all of its aches, pains and resistances. This is your first point of contact with your yoga practice, and most often, where you will spend the vast majority of your time. The mind tends to be ignored a bit in yoga, yet the mind, is very much at the helm of this practice. Dealing with the “mind on the mat”, the emotions that arise through the practice, and your personality is really at the core of all of yoga.
Gentle Yoga Immersion Training: 65 hours (CORE TT500+ hours)
Our Gentle Yoga training program is for those who love the softer side of movement. This training is for students who wish to teach these styles of yoga, or for those who wish to deepen their practice and understanding of these more gentle forms. Focus will be on gentle vinyasa, gentle, kundalini, yin, restorative, chair, therapeutic yoga and meditation. We will practice all styles in class, as well as practice teach them in small group settings. Yes, you will learn to actually teach what your learn in this training program. Cindy will share her knowledge and experience with the fundamentals of teaching and sequencing, the physiology and psychology of stress, and how to work with all types of yoga students, in a way that is inviting and attainable.
A mentorship is an invaluable gift to give to yourself to enhance your yogic journey. Studying under the tutelage of a seasoned and senior teacher can bring much joy to your practice and quickly develop skills that are challenging to harness elsewhere.
You will observe classes with a new eyes, hear teaching with advanced ears and learn to create unique sequences that are soulful, loving and stimulating. Choosing the right mentor is a bit like choosing a friend - someone who will nurture you but not be afraid to communicate where growth is needed. Through the course of the mentorship, you will learn to assist and do hands-on adjustments with many students in an assortment of classes, workshops, trainings and retreats. When we are complete, you will become an amazing teacher and be fully prepared to walk into any setting and teach Yoga!
