Be A Student Again. Be Inspired Again.
“We are all what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” –Aristotle
You already know how to teach. You love Yoga and can’t get enough of it. Now it’s time to take your teaching and practice to the next level with HOME Yoga’s 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training and receive your RYT – 500 certification.
Over the course of 12 weekends from Sept. to June, you’ll refine and challenge your knowledge of precise alignment, intelligent sequencing, anatomy, injury prevention, hands-on assisting, daily meditation, and ancient yoga philosophy and history, and, of course, teaching.
To deepen your practice as a consummate learner, each Saturday and Sunday will include rigorous asana designed to explore advanced postures as well as three hours of philosophy discussion on Friday nights. In depth posture labs will allow you to assist and adjust students more effectively. In addition, you’ll analyze and discuss strategies for commanding the room whether you are teaching beginners, seniors, injured or pregnant students, or even those who distract and challenge the teaching environment.
We have specialists like senior Iyengar yoga teacher Liz Owen offering her expertise on yoga for a healthy lower back and yoga for anxiety and depression, as well as well-renowned Ashtangi Kate O’Donnell coming to discuss the subtle body, ayurveda and chakras. An entire weekend, and then some, is dedicated to anatomy, led by a board certified athletic trainer who understands the intricacies of asana
You’ll refine your time management skills, ability to change your sequence on the fly and understanding of the bodies in, and energy of, the room. You’ll have the opportunity to observe classes and read the room from a different point of view by assisting live classes, getting hands-on practical experience.
You’ll have direct access to Kristin Olson, who teaches several classes a week and has a real pulse on the many obstacles that a teacher faces on a regular basis. It’s time to find your own voice, become a leader in your field and have the ability to lead workshops, retreats and specialized yoga classes.
