yoga teacher training - fall 2009
SHAKTI’s yoga teacher training embarks you on a profound journey of self-discovery; empowers you to become the best person you can be; offers a holistic, well-rounded, comprehensive training to build a foundation upon which to teach the ancient art and healing practice of yoga. You do not need to have the desire to be a yoga instructor to participate. This program is open to all interested in deepening their practice and learning the fundamentals of teaching Vinyasa/hatha yoga. This course will be intensive and highly rewarding, taught in a joyful, supportive and compassionate environment.
We encourage you to develop your own '”soul-centered'” approach to teaching. From the first day, students will begin teaching each other, finding their own voice, and crafting their own style. The program will focus on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, place a high emphasis on alignment, and uncover the art of sequencing. Teaching authentically, from your own truth, is a very effective way to share the path of yoga, not only for yourself, but also for your students. Through the SHAKTI experience, you will steady your practice of asana, pranayama, meditation and self-inquiry; you will discover your own true essence, inner power, and esprit; and you will maximize your ability to share this with the world. your training won’t be over at the end of the six months…it will last a lifetime!
