About This Event
There are 7 billion types of yoga in the world. We will help you find what is appropriate for you and train you to do the same for your students. Nothing is one size fits all; different periods in our lives require different practices and our training reflects that with both powerful, strengthening yang and deeply nurturing yin forms of yoga asana and other techniques so you have many tools to practice and share with your students. Our teachers pass forward the lineage of Krishnamacharya, Desikachar & Mark Whitwell and all asana practices have a strong focus on breath, felt sense awareness and safe structural alignment.
Our daily practice includes asana, pranayama, bandha & mantra. You will have anatomy & posture clinics twice per week with lots of opportunities for Q & A. We continuously coach you in clear, effective cueing so you can direct your classes in an articulate and effective way.
Consistent deep self-enquiry, philosophical discussion and encouragement to find the true power of your unique voice will help you connect deeply with yourself, each other and your students and give you the skills to weave meaningful themes through your classes.
As always with Jivani Yoga, teaching practicums begin in week one. You will be teaching your peers from the first few days of the training and you will be nurtured, guided & supported with useful feedback, encouragement and leadership skills that will steadily increase your self-confidence and empower you be a great teacher. We have a method, but there is nothing formulaic about the way we train our teachers. Each trainee receives individualized support that is dependent upon their particular needs. Upon graduation, you will be ready to start teaching in your community.
In addition to the standard requirements given by Yoga Alliance, you will learn a wide variety of tools and techniques to support your personal evolution. We will help you establish a personal practice that is appropriate for you and give you tools for conscious & compassionate communication, EFT, vocal empowerment and leadership skills that can bring transformation to all areas of your life.
If you are ready to embark on a truly extraordinary adventure of self-discovery, personal growth and profound transformation, this training is for you.
A required reading list and pre-training assignments will be presented upon registration. We would like trainees to have at least one year of regular yoga practice behind them to begin this training but trainees with less experience are still welcome to apply and their application will be considered on it's own merit.
It is hard to put my experience with Emma and the Jivani team into words. It seems as though there are a million Yoga Teacher Trainings out there these days and there is no doubt in my mind I found a program that is unique and stands out from the others. Having read and watched the testimonials of past Jivani teacher trainings, I knew how transformational these trainings could be. However nothing really prepares you for the kind of freedom of expression and growth that occurs.
