Theory and Practice of Yoga
This advanced training will emphasize deepening the students’ personal asana practice, which we believe to be the greatest source for creative teaching. In addition to a strong asana practice there will be a comprehensive study of the techniques and mechanics of fundamental yoga postures, while providing the tools necessary to teach yoga to others. To facilitate a more scientific understanding of the body, the training will include the study of functional anatomy and physiology. The training will also give developing and experienced teachers a balanced understanding of yoga by moving beyond the physical with the study of Vippasana meditation, (encouraging students to develop a daily meditation practice at home), a deep understanding of Pranayama, and an exploration of the 7 Chakras, the Dristhi and the 3 Bandhas.
