We blend sound science and incredible creativity, and yogic art to prepare YOU to make the changes in your life that you most deeply aim to make!
There is embodied foundation in freedom and freedom in foundation. The world acts upon and interacts with one’s perspective and personal embodiment via circumstances that strive to bend and shape us.
How and where we place our attention in this flow of change-ability, moment-to-moment, breathe-to-breath, day-to-day, and call-to-response in the most authentic and attended to offering possible, is the true definition of Vinyasa Yoga. It teaches us to stand in our skin with truth and integrity.
We are invited to proceed through the consequence of self and collective study, as if the small “s” of our self is searching for the big “S” of our self to help lift the context and occurrence of our being and becoming, as it unfolds, to both be and become in the highest resonance and relationship ever.
Further, that one is called to not only activate deep and soulful personal study, but to take his or her passion for yoga public, is not to be looked upon lightly or even left uncelebrated for a moment. It is the moment of tremendous courage. Let this foundational training between the dance of grace and gravity and gravity and grace be the ignition or launching point of your most studied, realized, cultivated, and best-Self ever.
Let this cutting-edge and wisdom-based 200-hour yoga teacher training offer you confidence in the foundation skills of sharing the art and science of thoughtfully aligned Vinyasa yoga in a skillful means of your own voice, creativity, and inspired to flow from your heart and mind out your mouth!
May your invocation into this training be one of willingness, offering, and receiving you-to-you. May you each learn to engage the truth and insights that only YOU can have. You are talking to yourself all the time… I guess the great question is… are you really listening? And are you ready to share? What skills are needed to both listen well and offer whole-heartedly with confident vulnerability.
The unique aspect of this training is that it fuses both the ancient and contemporary art and sciences of yoga. The training centers around YOU, the authenticity of a human becoming ever more human, with the dedicated development of your embodied, verbal, and confident skill sets. Each weekend, you will notice a deepened understanding of progressive simple to more complex teaching and a heightened ability to express yourself from them.
We will steep deep in the Embody Method, Shannon Paige’s signature style that has come through her many years of study, teaching public classes and teaching teachers. She has over 10,000 hours of teaching and is dedicated to constantly increasing her knowledge and sharing it with those who adopt the same commitment to confident vulnerability and mastery of this beautiful evolution of yoga. It is a style of teaching asana, movement patterns, and non-momentum-based flow from a mystic poetic, theme driven inspiration.
The effect is a program that not only up-levels entirely, one’s understanding of yoga in his or her own body, heart and mind but creates an ability to inspire a student / and that new teacher to give to his or her future students everything he or she has come to understand at a cellular level. One will be able to share not just sound sequencing, but a: knowledge of yoga asana, pranayama, and meditation, clear verbal teaching techniques, hands on instruction, confidence in class management and modifying on the fly, teaching to what is seen, all in the profound manner and method of sacredly expressing one’s truth on and off the mat.
The difference between good teaching and great teaching is this exact quality, offering that which is in your heart and mind in the true expression that only you can make!
This program exceeds industry standards and hours, not to train specific skills, but to grant confidence for your passion of yoga
and your unique means of sharing that gift:
· Conscious Alignment and Postural Progressive Study
· Empowered Teaching Methodology
· Thoughtful Progression Sequencing
· Empowering and Effective Hands On Adjustments
· Applicable Understanding of Anatomy in Action
· Comparative Yoga Philosophy
· Inspiring Heart-based and Themed Classes
· Development of an Enriching and Remarkable Personal Practice
· The Whole-hearted ability to GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY
Here’s to the great practices of Self Study… and from there, to the celebrations of what YOU will offer to all those you will teach. Here’s to the empowered and enlivened SELVES you will each weave into each other.
Congratulations on your desire to teach yoga. This premiere program is well designed, deeply intentioned, and dedicated to your inspiring YOURSELF into the deeper truths of YOUR heart, your focus, and your future in the currents of yoga.
Why Do We Add Adventures to Our Yoga Training!?
In addition to learning and embodying the teachings of yoga, a hallmark of our unique and powerful summer school yoga teacher training program is learning how to engage and empower adult learners by taking on some new adventures yourself!
· Hike a mountain (or two).
· Learn to wake surf.
· Paddle board for strength, calm and mid-lake meditations.
· Learn to sail.
Adults learn differently than children. We have to get ourselves out of our own way, in order to try something new and build skills in that activity. By weaving in some new and unique summer experiences, we each get a firsthand view of what it might take a new student to come to and stick with yoga, as an adult learner. As deepening yoga practitioners, we might forget what it feels like to engage something new, as our new adult students might experience coming to a studio for the first time or after a long pause in practice, unless we both humble and empower ourselves in this manner.
Plus, it adds an element of sunshine to a beautiful, Boulder CO summer program.
The program will run August 3 – 29, 2019 with days off sprinkled throughout the schedule.
After the Program:
We have a uniquely high placement rate at myriad studios across the country. Our graduates leave with practical skills and confidence. They are considered well-steeped in sound methodology, creativity, confidence and authenticity.
Not feeling called to teach? No pressure! Many choose to take this well-respected training to deepen a personal practice and up-level their own yoga experience without professional goals.
