The 200-hour Inner Power Yoga® Education is a comprehensive course in authentic yoga culture. It is designed to deepen your personal practice, enrich your understanding of yoga history and philosophy, and prepare you as a dynamic and competent yoga teacher. The most sustainable and transformational practice includes all seven of the goals of Yoga as outlined in the Gheranda Samhita: purification, strengthening, steadying, calming, increased perception, and spiritual expansion, which leads to kaivalya, or spiritual liberation.
The 200 hr. Inner Power Yoga® curriculum provides four week-long intensives which progressively approach these stages of development with thorough discussion and experiential learning of physical alignment, asana sequencing, yoga history, meditation, and yoga practice theory. Experiential learning and contemplative study offer each participant an opportunity to develop tools for optimal self-care and personal enrichment.
As a teacher training, the program will give you the tools to present a yoga practice that is adaptable to each individual, providing the skills required to share the practice and teachings of yoga in a manner that is authentic, inspired, and inclusive. Participants will learn how to create dynamic asana sequences and thoughtful class themes, as well as the essential ingredients of yoga mythology and philosophy to deepen their practice and teaching. With these skills, students may reach their highest potential as teachers.
Practicing asana, pranayama, and meditation techniques, you will learn how to effectively teach others in a way that is nurturing to the whole being. You will study ancient yoga language and philosophy, as well as modern yoga theory as it has evolved over the centuries.
