The HeART of Teaching Yoga
Who am I?
What makes me feel happy and balanced?
How can I bring balance and peace into my life?
What's my Purpose?
Have you ever asked yourself one or more of these questions? Still looking for the answers?
In this 300 Yoga Teacher Training / Self-Transformation Program (if you aren't looking to become a Yoga Instructor, but want to learn about the deeper concepts of yoga) than this may be the perfect weekend workshop for you.
Our Lead Teacher, Melissa Spencer, will guide you into the HeART of Teaching Yoga. Melissa believes that there is an ART to teaching and guiding students in all of the 8 Limbs of Yoga and will guide your through a weekend that taps into the creativity of teaching from within the space of your very own heart! Thus, the HeART of Teaching Yoga comes to life!
Melissa and the Peaceful World Tribe of Instructors will guide you to cultivate your personal passions and support you towards creating a personal Sadhana (practice) that feels authentic and purposeful in your life. This continuous cultivation of your own personal practice keeps you strong, clear, and connected to the evolution of Yoga. By creating a powerful personal practice,you will draw from personal insights and inspiration that come from the inner spaces of the heart and learn to teach and guide other seekers to deepen their own practice.
When we deepen our personal yoga practice we learn how to teach from where we are in our own bodies, hearts and minds and we continually bring ourselves and our students back to why we stepped on the path of Yoga in the first place.
Teachers will guide practitioners through demonstrations and experiential learning, on understanding of the human body at a deeper level, biomechanically, physiologically, and as the embodiment of spirit and life experience. With this advanced knowledge, students will walk away with the essential foundations for an effective personal practice and teaching styles. Lastly, our focus in this module will be observing the magnificent qualities of human beings in their natural progress. From stillness to asana, we are always in motion; our hearts are beating, our breath is flowing, and all of our systems are hard at work. Drawing students towards specific yoga practices will deepen and evolve each student’s body-mind-spirit philosophy and the transformation of this concept.
In this HEART Module, participants are taught that teaching yoga comes in many forms, from the art of self-inquiry to the art of sequencing. Students will be guided to practical and detailed information on teaching methods, sequencing principles, the fundamentals of 108 asanas (poses), and techniques for teaching Dhyana (meditation) and pranayama (breathing). Participants will also be exposed to the philosophy and history of yoga as well as traditional and modern aspects of anatomy.
Aspirants come to yoga for a variety of reasons and Peaceful World Yoga’s Heart Module provides inspired support and informed guidance to students pursuing varied passions and interests for developing their personal practice as well as in deepening and expanding their teaching knowledge.
