First and foremost, we think graduates need to feel at home in their practice, and feel comfortable stepping into the role of teacher. We aim for our graduates to have a solid base from which to maintain a lifelong relationship with Yoga.
We believe – in a world full of trainings and certifications – it is most important to learn to be discerning and to think critically about your practice.
This program introduces you to the bigger picture of Yoga, and to the professionals in our community who have more to share than what you can glean in a weekly, drop-in class.
We do not believe that a one year certification is the only thing you need to be an established yoga teacher, but it is a structured place to begin, and will be the foundation from which you develop expertise in years to come.
Our program spans 12 weekends and is designed to honor two paths:
1) Those who would like to deepen their understanding and practice, but may not be interested in teaching (Immersion)
(2) Those who want to develop yoga teaching skills (Teacher Training).
The first 7 weekends are Immersion and the next 5 weekends are Teacher Training.
The Immersion is great for any person interested in Yoga as a means to health and well-being. Whether your aim is to learn more about Yoga, to commit to consistent practice, or to eventually become a teacher, this Immersion is a launching point that will empower you to find YOUR practice while connecting you to longstanding educators in our community. Form unique bonds with your peers and enjoy the effects Yoga may have on your everyday life.
Note: The Immersion alone does not meet all criteria for becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher. It does count toward teacher certification when paired with Glowing Body Teacher Training. You do not have to plan to complete Teacher Training in order to complete this Immersion.
Ready to teach? Those who have completed the Glowing Body Immersion will seamlessly transition into our Teacher Training. Participants will gain practical skills for sharing yoga with others. An intensive focus on teaching skills and methodology with ample practicum will prepare you to teach a broad student base, allowing you to tailor your teaching toward the populations you wish to serve.
Note: The Teacher Training alone does not meet all criteria for becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher. It does count toward teacher certification when paired with Glowing Body Immersion. Any yoga teacher wishing to refresh or improve their teaching skills may participate.
