My Philosophy on Teaching Yoga
A good yoga teacher training program is a life changing event that sparks your inner fire and helps you realize your true self. My advanced TT is no different, and will bring you more advanced knowledge and techniques in the same method as my 200 hr program. This course is rooted in spiritual development while enhancing your physical, spiritual, philosophical and scientific knowledge of yoga. Students will solidify and refine their teaching methods to deliver a higher quality yoga class to themselves and their students. We have also built in a career navigator through this curriculum to help you hone in on your unique qualities as a teacher and be a happier more successful yoga entrepreneur.
Graduates will develop an intermediate/advanced knowledge of their own personal yoga practice. Several guest speakers are invited to really help you develop your business as a yogipreneur, and to lecture on special topics like anatomy, philosophy and nada yoga. This program will give you the tools to structure and teach yoga on a deeper level and give you the business and marketing insight you need to stand apart from other yoga instructors.
