So, I have been thinking and watching so many studios have PACKED teacher training programs and pumping out new yoga teachers. I’m also getting a LOT of calls from certified teachers wanting additional training because they feel under-prepared to teach. I completely understand that feeling and felt the exact same way! There is a LOT to learn in a beginner 200 hour training and endless amounts to absorb. The brain can only retain so much and the journey can only go so fast. As the environment changes, as the student changes, as our needs change–so must immersions and training programs. So YOGALOVE IS GOING OLD SCHOOL.
We are going one-on-one yoga mentorship training at YogaLove. I understand that may not seem economically efficient for a studio, but I’m not concerned about that. I’m concerned about teaching and helping students get to where they want to be as a teacher. So here is how YogaLove’s 200-hour program will go:
-You and Amy (or teacher or your choice at YL) will start your teachings one-on-one based upon your current yoga interests and we will study deeply.
-We will work in 50 hour chunks and break up topics until you can teach them back because you embody the lessons.
-Once you hit your 200-hour completion and can fully teach a class with assists, pranayama, philosophy and your own VOICE, you will get your certificate through YogaLove and the Yoga Alliance. This may take you a year or 10 years, but you will be ready to walk the path of a yoga teacher in confidence.
-You will teach practice classes to the community before you’re on your own. As many as you need.
-You will assist Amy’s Saturday classes until you feel so comfortable assisting, your helping strangers on the street feel better in their own posture (just kidding–but you get the drift here).
