500Hr 3-Day: Injury Prevention and Yoga

Spark Hot Yoga Studio

Cost: $425

As yoga teachers, it is beyond our scope of practice to diagnose or treat injury, but the more educated we are about the body, the more skillful we can be at preventing injury and supporting our injured practitioners. In this 3-day intensive module, we will discuss the 5 most common injuries seen in the yoga studio. We will discuss modifications, contraindications, and ways to decrease repetitive motion injuries in your classes. Your expanded understanding will give you the tools to empower your students with a keener awareness of their own bodies in posture.

Times: 7AM - 4PM Daily with breaks for lunch

Price: $1750 per Level or $3000 for Levels 1 & 2 purchased together with "Early Registration $500 Savings"

Level 1
This program focuses on establishing your teaching foundation. We will first support you in
understanding exactly what yoga is and how to most effectively teach it…this will be an
exciting on-going discussion throughout the entire training. Something we always suggest is
to get clear about what your idea of being a yoga teacher is and then to DROP IT! These
strong held ideas are often false and self-limiting to new teachers. We will put a lot of hard
work into getting a vinyasa class sequence down so that you can become relaxed with it. We
have worked with many teachers and have lots of tricks at helping you remember so don’t
worry! Our sequence is well thought out so that the postures support healthy movement and
practice for your students. Through daily posture clinics you will have a strong working
knowledge of the pose alignment, modifications & contraindications. We will teach you a
new paradigm with posture alignment that questions the textbook teachings. We will teach
you how to be 100% relevant with your cues. You will practice teach every day in order to develop your voice and confidence. By the end of this program you will be able to teach a full class. Yes there will be lots of room for growth, that’s where Level 2 comes in.

500Hr 3-Day: The Nervous System and Yoga

Cost: $425

The more we learn about the healing aspects of mindful movement practices, the more we see the multifaceted nature of their efficacy. When a positive effect is experienced–we can’t possibly reduce the cause down to one element—there are many mechanisms. While musculoskeletal wellness is often sought out through yoga, it can’t be separated from what is happening at a neural level. In this 3-day intensive, we will discuss the anatomy of the nervous system, the neural mechanisms correlated with movement and mindfulness, the vagus nerve and polyvagal theory, and the implications with yoga

Petaluma, CA @ Renew Power Yoga

Fri 3-5, 7-9:30pm, Sat 12:30-7pm, Sun 12-4:30pm = 15hrs

Most yoga practitioners come to the mat to feel better. One aspect of feeling well is the capacity to move throughout one’s daily activities without pain and discomfort. Maintaining tensional integrity in the musculoskeletal body is imperative for long-term, functional wellness. In this 3-day intensive, we will examine typical yoga posture and alignment with the intention of delivering balanced movement, strengthening, and mobility opportunities for practitioners. We will discuss strategies for sequencing and postural cueing for functional class design. You will gain a strong understanding of how to shape your classes for increased functionality while maintaining the essence of what you already teach.

Times: 7AM - 4PM Daily with breaks for lunch
Price: $1750 per Level or $3000 for Levels 1 & 2 purchased together with "Early Registration."

Level 2
Now that you have a good understanding of what yoga is, what it means to be a yoga
teacher, postural alignment and a sequence wired within you, it’s time to refine. We will
utilize many exercises to help you get even more relaxed with the sequence so that you can
develop your most powerful expression. Every single teacher will have his or her own unique
expression and we see it as our job to help you find and embrace it. We will help you
understand what it means to truly see your students so that your words are relevant. We
don’t believe that reciting a script or bullet points for any given posture is the most effective
way of teaching. We will teach you to speak in a way that your students want to listen. You
will practice teach a lot in order to get real-time feedback on how your teaching is landing.
Although the practice teaching might sound scary—it truly is the best and fastest way to
learn. Our commitment is to send you off as a powerful teacher who can teach a yoga class
that is way beyond a workout. We want you to teach in a way that helps people live happier,
healthier, freer lives!
