Starting in 2021 will for the first time, our training will serve
2 unique populations of teachers in separate training pods:
1. Traditional, curious, avid yoga enthusiasts, looking to take their practice and turn it into a life style and possibly either a complimentary or professional career as a teacher of peace. Yoga asana, philosophy and a vast understanding of the anatomy and physiology is emphasized along with how to gently tend to the fires of the heart within yourself and those around you. Whether you are looking to teach, or not, you'll be well prepared to do so. and you will be your own first student. We teach what we need to learn.
2. Social workers, therapists, educators/administrators, first responders this training becomes not only a life preserver in the realm of self care, it becomes part of your professional and personal first aid kit. As they say on airplanes, put your own oxygen mask on first. You'll learn in depth anatomy, biology and neurobiology through the vehicle of the body by way of yoga asana and philosophy, theory and DBT inspired yogic teachings. From first hand experience you'll be able to share with your clients, patients and students these yogic inspired tools to empower them to better function and thrive in their daily life. From our previous educators and social workers that have gone through this program we've gotten feedback of seeing progress in real time that these techniques work immediately, effectively, and are easy to assimilate into daily life for both practitioners and their populations and communities. This ancient spiritual science teaches how to access and balance the secret language between the mind, body and spirit.
This course meets and goes beyond all the requirements for a 200 hour yoga teacher training program as a Registered Yoga Alliance 200 hour School of Yoga.
Requirements + Dates
* This training is intended to held in person in small groups of 6 or less. We are also in a pandemic due to the Covid-19 virus. Depending on conditions some of this training may need to be held virtually if/when necessary. You will be alerted in advance and prepared for whichever environment is safe and accessible at the start of and through out the training.
A minimum 2 months to a year of practice with Aline, preferably consecutively but cumulatively works as well.
A minimum of 1 year of consistent yoga practice with any teacher, this needs to be a consistent year.
In addition to attendance and participation during training weekends, you will also need to attend 1 weekly private mid week class strictly for each YTT pod so you will track with the same group and continue learning with Aline. Dates, days times TBD by the availability of each group and the studio schedule. Homework via reading, practice teaching and some short writing projects will also be required outside of classroom time.
This is a professional training, whether you are joining with or without the intention to teach. You will need to arrive to each class at least 10 - 15 minutes early to settle in and prepare for practice. Showing up early is honoring the tradition of yoga Sadhana (practice) as well as supporting your own nervous system and the nervous systems of your fellow classmates. It's something you'll need to develop as a teacher and an invaluable life skill. Discipline builds self esteem and over time becomes a devotion to the betterment of your own spirit which is at the root of this training and Yoga itself.
This training is based on hours and being late or missing a weekend day is strongly discouraged and will set you back. Should a day be missed due to illness or emergency, you will need to make up each day via a 2 hour tutorial at $90 per hour for each day missed. Missing more than one weekend disqualifies you from completing the training, this course is hands on and being present for all hours is a huge part of the process. See application for details on absence.
