Level 1 200-Hour Teacher Training
The journey begins with the 200-Hour Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training.
The first half of the training builds the foundation. The curriculum includes the basics of safe and effective asana practice, anatomy, teaching methodology, pranayama and an in-depth study of 45 fundamental asanas.
The second half of the training digs deeper and includes training in hands-on assists, verbal cueing, and more. Shambhava meditation, ethics, philosophy, and teaching styles are topics explored throughout the training.
Through Shambhava meditation practices, you learn to reach deeper inside and teach from a place of clarity and depth.
When the training ends, you will have the tools you need to bring the practice into your life, and to help others do the same.
This foundational course is a prerequisite for the 500-hour training.
