I am really excited to anticipate huge growth for our Inner Power Yoga® Education programs in the years ahead. Over the past decade, we have become committed to offering a program that expands beyond most 200 hour Yoga Teacher Trainings and our new 300 hour will take you even deeper! broader!...more empowered!
...but our curriculum is not for everyone.
Here are five real reasons why you would NOT want to choose Inner Power Yoga® for your training:
5. You are looking for a Guru.
At Inner Power Yoga®, we don’t claim to be gurus…or sages…or even healers. In fact, we strive to remind you that your greatest teacher is within YOU. We believe that you already know the deepest wisdom in your heart of hearts. That wisdom is what attracts you to yoga in the first place.
As STFs (students, teachers, and friends) for one another, we offer a mirror that reflects our true Self. You are invited to see your inner guru as it shines radiantly like a light in the darkness.
We are here to remind each other of our inner power and intrinsic goodness. We stand together to remember Love. There is no greater healer.
4. You want it fast and easy.
If you’re looking for a drive-through certification, Inner Power Yoga® is not for you. In fact, we consider ourselves to be “slow yoga” at its best. Yoga is a lifelong experience and our education programs foster a deep-seated relationship with the process and the source.
We consider four sources for learning:
Teachers: Our seasoned trainers have unique backgrounds and expertise. We all strive to give you every tool we have collected over decades of teaching. The curriculum is based on experienced asana, as well as comprehensive Yoga academics: history, philosophy, and theory.
Tribe: We keep our tribe intimate and riding the highest vibrations so that you are supported along your transformational journey.
Trial: You must take the practice hOMe—engage, explore, go deep—until it becomes tried and true for you…in your own unique and authentic expression. Remember, your greatest teacher is within YOU!
Time: Inner Power Yoga® invites you into a sustainable practice that will ebb and flow, expand and grow, in the dynamic play of personal development.
3. You are expecting a glamorous yoga rock-star lifestyle to follow your yoga teacher training.
We do not promise six-figures or an entourage. Instead, a living yoga practice will change your perspective and reveal the beauty and abundance that your real life holds right now…as it is. With an emphasis on a psycho-spiritual awakening, your education with Inner Power Yoga® invites you to higher, deeper, and wilder realizations of an authentically joy-filled life.
2. You just want to master your vrscikasana.
In our yoga education programs, we do spend a lot of time exploring yoga asana including anatomy, alignment, and spanda kriyas. ...because with educated practice, you can experience the most stable physical integration, so that you can enjoy the most gloriously open expression of your asana.
HOWEVER, if you are looking for a yoga teacher training that is all about physical fitness, you’re barking up the wrong vrksa.
Our education program is fortified by the seasoned expertise of all our yoga asana teachers as well as the my extensive education in Yoga, Mythology, and Psychology. I have lovingly curated content from my BA in Traditional Eastern Arts, my MA in Mythology and Psychology, and my recent PhD work in Yoga Tantra and Esoteric Alchemy to provide a program that takes you to new heights of exploration. Get to know your true Self on every level: body, mind, and spirit…so that you can be a living example of empowerment for others.
1. You don’t want your life to change.
The number one reason you would NOT want to take Inner Power Yoga® education courses is that you don’t want to change. Someone once told us not to use the word transformational in our marketing materials, because that is promising something that may not actually be realized. Here’s the thing: if you are approaching your yoga education with an open heart and mind—showing up 100% to the process—there is no way to avoid change.
Many people that go through our programs are there for personal enrichment. They are ready to take their practice to new heights…to take their understanding of the teachings of yoga to new depths, and to enjoy a wilder appreciation for the human experience.
So, you would definitely NOT want an Inner Power Yoga® education if you aren’t ready for exciting personal transformation.
But if you are ready to take your Yoga higher, deeper, farther, and wilder...Inner Power Yoga® is for you.
Hope to see you in the upcOMing year!
