The course is a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training approved by the Yoga Alliance. Upon completion of the course you will be able to register as a yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance (US).
We do not expect you to be an advanced yogi, nor super fit or flexible. We expect you to have practiced yoga and to love yoga, have a willingness to learn and a commitment to the course.
You will develop a strong practice, both in class and at home. You will be able to demonstrate, well, all postures to intermediate level, and advanced postures determined by you as an individual.
You will be required to do classes and/or home practice throughout the course.
You will develop extensive anatomy skills specific to yoga – you will understand the anatomy of poses as well as alignment, injury/weakness modifications and prop use. You will understand a minimum of 100 poses in depth and be able to teach those poses to all individuals, of various levels of yoga, fitness and injury restrictions.
We love all Yoga styles. We teach Intelligent Pirate Yoga – Vinyasa but we borrow from all types of yoga. If it works intelligently we will use it in our sequencing in class. Styles in this course: Ashtanga; Vinyasa Flow; Alignment based Flow; Kids Yoga; Pregnancy Yoga, Yoga for Sports, and an overview of other styles including Iyengar, Bikram and Forest.
Alongside Laura, you will explore psychological aspects of the TEACHING yoga as well as the personal psychology of you, the practitioner and the teacher.
WHO ARE YOU AND WHO IS YOUR STUDENT

SEQUENCING a class. This is what the Wellness Connection Yoga is all about – sequencing for yoga. You learn to sequence a class, learning how to choose the preparatory poses to help open and strengthen for the final pose.
Students that will sequence and teach classes of differing yoga abilities. Those that show early promise can teach a public class at the studio.
