A Unique Mind-Body Interdisciplinary Approach to Becoming a Yoga Teacher
This course carefully covers everything you will need to know to get you started teaching. We know that powerful and effective teachers are those who are speaking from their own experience. During this month-long training, you will be spending a majority of your time in direct experiential learning. What does this mean? Every day you will experience both Nosara Yoga Therapeutics and Nosara Vinyasa classes that will allow you to go deeper into your own personal practice of yoga.
What You’ll Learn
The Nosara Vinyasa you’ll practice each day is a carefully designed sequence of yoga postures that synchronize breath with each movement. This flow of postures is expertly designed by Amba to guide the body through all posture groups that the body needs every day — standing, forward bending, spinal twisting, front-extending, seated and inversion positions. You’ll learn the fundamentals of how to teach each posture in the flow, including principles of alignment, hands-on assists, modifications for different bodies and how to guide the posture with language that feels comfortable for you.
By combining these two approaches to yoga into your training, Nosara Yoga Therapeutics and Nosara Vinyasa, you will have all the tools, knowledge and experience you’ll need to begin teaching a wide spectrum of classes that will make the practice of yoga accessible to people of all experience levels and physical capabilities. In addition, you’ll learn how to:
