Our goal is to guide you through a multifaceted program toward a deeper understanding of the many aspects of a complete yoga practice. Not only will we look at the science of yoga but we’ll also connect the practice to your mental, emotional, and spiritual paths.
Our curriculum is designed in a conceptual format, teaching you significant ideas that will guide your learning and help you be a more mindful student and teacher of yoga. We’ll explore the 8-limb path, Pranayama, intelligent sequencing, anatomy, biomechanics (physics of movement), the science of Ayurveda, the chakra system, teaching methodology, assisting, meditation, communication skills and much, much more.
Join Marcia Brown (E-RYT 200, RYT-500, Founder of “A Confident Life”) and Greg LaBarbera (E-RYT 200, MEd. Education, BS Exercise Sciences) for Be Yoga’s 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training, two instructors whose divergent backgrounds will come together to guide you on a well-rounded and meaningful journey.
January 30-February 1
Training sessions will be held at our Carmel studio at 7510 Pineville-Matthews Rd. Registration deadline is September 2nd, 2014.
What if I don’t want to teach? Not a problem! While the program is designed to educate and equip individuals to be confident teachers, it offers much more. If your goal is to build your own personal knowledge and understanding of yoga, this is for you. We learn best when we teach, so being able to gain new concepts and then practice sharing with others will serve to enhance your own understanding.
How much homework is required between modules? There will be some reading and journaling required between modules, but expect to spend only a few hours on that part. Most of the work in between modules will involve integrating and observing what you studied in the previous module, such as noticing how you breathe during your own practice, being aware of ways you embody ahimsa in your daily life, assisting classes, or practice teaching.
Do I have to be able to do all the poses? Being able to do all the poses doesn’t make one a great teacher. Understanding how to do the poses and being able to safely instruct and assist others into poses is much more important.
What if I miss a class? Full class participation, successful completion of the assigned curriculum and self- study are required to receive your Be Yoga certificate of completion. However, we realize that “life” happens. If it is necessary to miss any training sessions, the hours can be made up, privately, with Greg or Marcia at the rate of $50 per hour, plus any relevant self-study.
