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 the 300-hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with HOME Yoga and The Yoga Loft and receive your RYT – 500 certification.
Over the course of 10 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. 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. We’ll explore in more depth Restorative, Yin, Beginners, Ayurveda, the Subtle Body, meditation.
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 and history discussion on Friday nights. In depth posture labs will allow you to see and pinpoint the differences in tight bodies verses more flexible bodies. 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. An entire weekend, and then some, is dedicated to anatomy, led by board certified athletic trainer and yoga teacher Caitlin Goffman.
You’ll have direct access to both Kristin Olson and Jen Ryan, who for more than a decade have been teaching several classes a week and have a real pulse on the many obstacles that a teacher faces on a regular basis. Our training also features Kate O’Donnell presenting Ayurveda and the Subtle Body, Amy Rollfs with module 1 of her Restorative Teacher Training and Caitlin Goffman presenting an in-depth look at anatomy through the lens of injury prevention.
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.
