Yoga teacher training provides instruction to students in the arts and science of yoga through two certification programs. In your 200-hour teacher training program the student will learn history, philosophy, the fundamentals of Hatha yoga. Students will gain proficiency in yoga asana, the linking of postures - vinyasa. Students will be proficient in demonstrating asana as well as observation of participants of a yoga class. Effective teaching requires the ability to recognize and make modifications. To explain corrective measures needed to improve skills and avoid injuries. Students will learn anatomy of yoga, alignment or proper body mechanics, teaching skills, effective cues, hands on assisting and class management. Students will learn mantras, mudras, chants in sanscript. Learn to deliver guided meditations to help others with stress management.
