About This Event
This will be our first WildYoga Teacher Training weekend based out of Studio M Yoga, in Mariposa, CA. This beautiful studio (started by a WildYoga graduate) is where we will get grounded and tap into the support of the instructors, the student community and the ancient wisdom of yoga. The Earth Element teaches us to slow down, trust in our foundation, take time for self-care, and root down through our feet. It is the perfect place from which to begin teaching yoga as a new instructor!
Please arrive having eaten dinner as we begin with an asana practice at 6:30pm.
We will allow at least one hour for lunch and two hours for dinner.
We will allow at least one hour for lunch.
*Please note, once you are registered we will send you a more specific schedule via email. We generally take one outdoor field trip (weather permitting) per weekend, while the other full day is spent in the studio environment.
Asana: We will break down, analyze and practice standing poses, reclined poses, and key poses for a grounding yoga class.
Pranayama: We will explore and discuss breath awareness vs breath regulation. We will practice and teach abdominal breathing.
Philosophy: We will read and discuss selected Yoga Sutras and review the question: What does yoga mean to you?
Anatomy: We will review muscles and bones of the feet and legs, and their importance as the foundation of a yoga practice.
Student teaching: Students will begin teaching each other through one-on-one and small group exercises. We will discuss ahimsa (non-violence) in giving and receiving feedback on your teaching.
Food and accommodation are not included in the course tuition, and students are responsible for making their own arrangements. Please feel free to contact us with questions.

Balanced Rock integrates the wonder of the natural world with the beauty of humanity through reflection, yoga and adventure. I am nearly complete with my 200 hour Yoga teacher training through BR and I am consistently impressed with the level of time and attention this organization puts into developing teachers and longtime learners of yoga and life. ~P.J.

DirectionsEach course explores a different region of the Park. With our staff of resident Yosemite experts, we specialize in visiting less crowded, yet stunningly beautiful corners of the Park. We have decades of collective experience in exploring Yosemite National Park, and have a wide range of hidden sanctuaries, secluded lakes, outdoor granite-slab yoga “studios”, and comfortable campsites in our routes and itineraries. If you want to also see some of the more popular icons and destinations, there is ample time at the beginning and end of each course.
Once you complete your registration for a course, we will send you detailed directions and a map to the meeting place for your course. This will usually be a campground inside the park boundary on the Tioga Pass Road.
