200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training with Dora and special guests September 2013 – April 2014
If you’ve been searching for a 200 hour program that will provide you with both a Western Scientific approach and Eastern Philosophy, look no more! This training will teach you the foundations and history of yoga, anatomy, and how to teach beginners to advanced — not just what is “required” for a quick teaching certificate.
Teaching yoga is an art and a science!
You will graduate from this program and be equipped in both realms. You will learn the history of yoga and be well rounded in classical yogic texts. The training will dive deep into understanding anatomy, nutrition, self care including making time for your own practice, students’ different learning styles, different teaching styles, hands on assisting, the business of yoga and more. Cognitive therapy will be emphasized along with modern psychiatry methods. Your trainers will artfully overlay ancient yoga teachings and embed them into modern science. You will learn how to teach yoga without preaching a particular spirituality.
This training will make you feel comfortable teaching students of any level; from total beginners starting a practice later life to advanced yogis and flexible gymnasts in their twenties. Completing Teacher Training at Spira will provide you the tools necessary to inspire students from gyms to yoga festivals. Should you have no desire to teach, the training will deepen your knowledge of yoga and help you gain a better understanding of your own practice.
Approximate meeting dates are below. Approximate meeting times are: Friday 6:00 – 9:30 pm; Saturday 9:30 am – 3:30 pm; and Sunday 12:30 – 3:30 pm. The training also includes Dora’s 40 Days of Introspection in January 2014.
