NYI Directors come from all over the globe to share their wealth of professional experience to teach what they are most passionate about. Every teacher authors their own training materials and manual to fully support your continued training.
2. Experiential Learning Methodology
How does one learn? At NYI, this inquiry is at the core of our learning environment.
Yoga cannot be taught, but it can be felt, sensed and experienced. In order to receive the wisdom of yoga, the learning is enhanced by creating an environment that is inquiry-based, experiential, and non-authoritarian. Learning at NYI is a multi-dimensional experience.
We understand that it takes the time it takes for the learner to digest, understand, accept or reject any new concept, idea, bodily movement or theory. As a result, we intentionally set aside time after each session, so that you can return to yourself in nature, and make the learnings your own.
What makes our curriculum unique is that it employs the teaching methodology and learning psychology designed by a Yogi who also has a Ph.D in Art Education, Human Development and Creativity. Drawing from his 30 years of teaching, research and personal experience in the University and Ashram settings, each program opens another dimension of yoga inquiry and the development of skills that you will need to be a successful yoga educator into the 21st Century.
