Shambhava Yoga™ Teacher Training
We believe that yoga teacher training should be a life-changing experience. One of the first yoga schools in America, Shambhava Yoga has always emphasized that becoming a great teacher means becoming a great student. You do not just learn how to teach yoga here, you learn how to deepen your practice and grow.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
Asana (yoga poses)
We teach in both the Hatha and Vinyasa style. We offer you variations to create different “levels”: faster or slower, more athletic or more gentle classes. This versatility enables you to develop your personal style, deliver the type of class you wish to teach while meeting your students needs.
Assists & Modifications
You will learn many ways to assist your students personally including hands on assists, how to use props, responsive cueing, mirroring and more!
Yogic Philosophy & Meditation
Shambhava Yoga has a strong meditative focus. You will learn many time tested practices to serve your growth personally and as a teacher. We discuss many philosophy topics including the yamas, niyamas, Yoga Sutras, the mind, the heart, the breath, and the interconnectedness of traditions.
Anatomy & Physiology
Pictures, videos and hands on demonstrations all complement the asana instruction to gain deeper understanding of how yoga postures affect our human anatomy and physiology.
Pranayama (breathing techniques)
Breath plays a vital role in regulating our physiology, mental state, emotions, and the ability to be present and focused. You will learn how to practice and teach 10 different pranayama techniques to deepen your understanding of breath’s role in yoga and wellness.
Learn how to cue effectively, create sequences and classes, integrate themes, incorporate neutralizing poses, be inclusive and welcoming, build clientele and more! We include a variety of teaching exercises to put our discussions into action and build your confidence and ability to teach.
Learn the history of the Sanskrit language, basic pronunciation principles, pose names and the translation of common words in yoga.
Special Populations Yoga
We discuss and practice specialty styles of yoga. You’ll develop a foundation to understand and meet the needs of various demographics of students. You’ll be able to incorporate restorative and inclusive yoga into your classes. You may discover a passion you can pursue more through additional training.
How to Do What You Love
Learn ways to navigate your life’s dreams. Our team of experienced yoga educators share what they’ve learned over the years in yoga, business, and living the life you want. This includes ideas on where to gain opportunities to teach, what qualities you’ll want to demonstrate and how to present yourself.
