200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training
Yoga Alliance Registered
Upcoming Dates in Paris:
September 3rd - October 23rd, 2022
Congratulations on taking a step towards transforming your YOGA LIFE! We are honored that you have chosen to learn more about our teacher training program. Here are some important points of information to help you decide on whether our training is a good fit for you. If, after reading this you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch with us at email@example.com
This is a Hatha & Vinyasa Teacher training course; however, you will also study other styles of yoga including Restorative, Prenatal, Kundalini, Ashtanga, Acro and Kids Yoga. You will practice some Iyengar style alignment and delve into the world of meditation, pranayama, and Yogic philosophy. Yoga Nidra and Ayurveda principles will also be studied. We are 12 teachers total, all specializing in our fields.
Our wish is to give you as many tools as we can to help transform you into a knowledgeable, competent, and confident teacher. Our lives evolve and transform constantly, and we don’t yet know which style you will be drawn to, what teachings you will connect with and what audience you will teach. Our goal is to give you the knowledge and courage so that you can decide the kind of teacher you wish to become.
Pre-requisites for our training:
After reading this information you decide that we are the right school for you, we will send you an online form to fill out so that we can get to know you a little better and understand who you are and why you wish to do our training. Each application will be reviewed by Gillian and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We do NOT expect you to be a "super" yogi and be able to do perfect headstands and hold plank for 10 minutes. This is a training program and as you probably already know, yoga is about practice, not perfection. The training will teach you about all elements of asana and more. You are here to grow and learn how to teach others safely. This is the CORE belief of Transformational Yoga.
What we do wish to see, is that you are dedicated to your practice, and that you have a desire to learn more and a passion to want to deepen your understanding of all that is Yoga, but also of yourself.
During the training, you will be required to practice a minimum of 30 hours of Yoga in addition to the training sessions (this can include online classes at home and practice with other teachers in different schools and studios). This is important to ensure that you delve into the training deeply, create a disciplined personal practice, and that you get an idea of different methods of teaching.
You may not have the intention to teach yoga right now, or ever and that is ok! Consider this a gift that you are giving yourself to transform your life and immerse yourself in the universe of Yoga. However, to receive your certificate at the end of the training (you never know what twists and turns your life may take in the future), you will still be required to complete all sessions and additional practice hours.
