Being a part of the 200 Hour Teacher Training Program at New York Yoga was such a positive, rewarding experience. The program is so well rounded, covering a wide range of topics, from developing a safe and challenging asana sequence, to understanding the deeper meaning of the practice of yoga. Not to mention the closeness and support received from the Program Director and fellow trainees. I always loved going to training each weekend. It was one of the best things I have ever done!”
There will be heavy emphasis on trainees practicing teaching within each course session. In addition, this course will cover effective methods for leading group as well as one-on-one sessions. Different teaching techniques reflect an understanding that different people learn in different ways. Understanding the different ways in which people learn will help you learn effective ways of communicating deeper meaning while leading practitioners through practice. This will also help you deepen your own understanding and practice.
Yes. These 13 weeks are an intense experience to deepen your own relationship to this practice. Many students are unsure when they enter if teaching is in their future. While we do spend a great deal of time practicing to teach and assist our fellow students, the inner journey of self awareness that is this practice of yoga can be life changing. In the process of helping others learn how to practice more effectively, it is amazing how much we learn about deepening our own practice.
