James Kigar and Judy Weaver present our 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training Program. The course is rooted in the Vinyasa Yoga System. Our mission is to provide each Yoga teacher a comprehensive understanding of Hatha yoga as well as skills and tools to design and facilitate a Vinyasa flow class. You do not have to be or want to be a teacher to attend. The information and experiences contained in this course will also benefit anyone already teaching as well as those wishing to deepen their personal practice. Program participants wishing to teach will find a wealth of invaluable tools to share with their students.
Our program is a practical training offering many opportunities to develop your individual voice and refine your delivery using clear language, focusing on alignment and intelligent sequencing. The training will provide a deep understanding of the body and how postures work with it. This will contribute to both increased confidence and skillfulness for effective, firm and safe hands-on physical adjustments when appropriate. The participants will learn a Vinyasa routine; Edge I, as well as the science of sequencing which supports the processes of creating an improvisational flow.
The intensive program meets Monday-Friday, 1 pm-5 pm for four weeks. Also required are 45 hours of self-practice, 45 hours of supervised observation & assistance and the successful completion of all assignments, teachings and exams. You will also be required to teach one of Yoga South’s Edge flows and your individually designed Vinyasa flow to a group class.
