The Soul Centre Teacher Training Intensive is a comprehensive introduction to the art and science of conducting a yoga class. Our program is distinctive in the amount of time devoted to intensive practice and analysis of the postures (asanas) and breathing techniques (pranayama) that link them.
Our Facilitators come from a broad background of styles representing lineages derived from the father of modern yoga teachers. Our focus is on a vinyasa (flow) style of practice. In our program the bulk of classroom time will be spent on techniques of practice, teaching and assisting postures and breath. Intensives on anatomy, classroom safety and sequencing as well as the use of music and text will help to prepare aspiring teachers for real classroom situations. Students will be expected to complete reading and independent study assignments to begin the process of understanding the philosophy and literature of yoga and how it can be applied to living and teaching in 21st century. Developing a strong and consistent personal practice will be emphasized as the basis for beginning to teach others. Students who graduate this program will feel confident to begin teaching at a basic & intermediate level.
