The School of Embodied Poetics, 300 hour, Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

….Be more than a good teacher. Be more than a great teacher.

 

“Be an exceptional teacher.” – Rod Stryker.

 

To meet that aim, this is an exceptional and evolutionary teacher’s study. It marries cutting edge science, biomechanics, and wise psychology to the ancient wisdom traditions of yoga, mythology, and mysticism. The result is a remarkable, modular 300 hour training program to build knowledge, leverage authentic gifts, build confidence and cultivate an authentic voice.

Across the program, attend embodiment sessions, lectures, practicums, webinars, a meditation retreat and a service outreach, to up level your offering, as perhaps you never imagined possible.

As a Mandala of study, the program layers and anchors skills intelligently as it maps in the most relevant and creative directions of yoga teaching skills.

Each Teacher who engages this program experiences seven main modules, The Four Direction Immersions and The Triadic Heart Wisdom Immersions, as well as selecting five Evolutionary Elective Modules.

THE PURPOSE PROJECT

A Service Study and Activation of 20 Hours

Each teacher selects one program from our five arms of activism, seva or service. This encourages each teacher to develop a life long connection and platform of meaning from which authentic teaching, inspiration, and direction can thrive:

  • Planetary – Environmental Activism and Service
  • Women – Centered Activism and Service
  • Child – Centered Activism
  • Human Right – Underserved – Poverty Shifting Service
  • Animal Activism

Twenty hours of applied and reflected upon service, as well as a directional focus and plan for future service inspiration for one’s teaching platform are aimed to be the outcome.

 

THE MENTORSHIP PROJECT

Be Inspired, Inspire Others

Each new Mandala teacher receives a teaching mentor from a prior advanced teacher’s study program. This teacher – teacher connection builds connection, collaboration and communication. These collaborations have open engagement for online and in person connections to support growth and foster teaching development.

Each new Mandala teacher applies him or herself as a mentor to a new Embody 200 hour Yoga Teacher / Student. These collaborations have open engagement for online and in person connections to support growth and foster teaching development.

Each Mandala teacher, after completing a single cycle of mentoring a 200 hour Embody YTT graduate and halfway through his or her 300 hour Mandala studies, receives a new Mandala teacher to mentee. These collaborations have open engagement for online and in person connections to support growth and foster teaching development.

We aim for this Mentorship Project and mentee development program to create life long connections and a web of strength and support.
