Level I 50 Hour Immersion: Tadasana & Standing Poses

Feb 1-March 2, 2014

Yoga One Santa Rosa

Saturdays & Sundays, 12-5pm


YOGA ONE proudly announces the upcoming 50 hour Yoga Immersion and Teacher Training with our Director of Studies, Shy Sayar!

Yoga One's Higher Eduation in Yoga and Teacher Training Program

This comprehensive, Yoga Alliance Registered training program is designed to help you deepen your understanding of Yoga, in order to cultivate a solid, safe and effective practice. The program emphasizes developing an embodied proficiency in the fundamental physical and theoretical principles of yoga, and cultivating powerful tools for the skillful application of yogic resources to enhance health and well-being.

Yoga One's innovative training program is offered in modules, designed to serve those who are planning to become yoga teachers as well as students who are looking for the highest quality training yoga, but may not be interested in teaching.

Our module system also allows flexibility in completing the program over time for those who have difficulty fitting a full training into their busy schedules in one stretch, as each module is offered several times each year.

Taught by a Yoga Therapist and higher education specialist, our training method is unique and exceptional in that it is not limited to any “style”. Drawing from a wide array of yogic practices in order to customize the practice to the practitioner, our motto is “teaching people, not poses”. In the training, we learn universal principles of alignment and practice, such that graduates of our past trainings now teach everything from Yin and Restorative to Power Vinyasa and Ashtanga with exceptional skill, due to their understanding of the foundational principles that thread through the whole practice.

During the program each student is given corrective poses, movements and practices tailored to her or his needs, capacities and constitution. During practice sessions we explore many different ways to practice, as well as different intensities of practice, while each practitioner is encouraged to honor the body in the process.

With exceptional attention devoted to practical training and teaching experience time, this training is designed and proven to produce effective, confident yoga teachers who are ready to teach upon graduation and stand out in the world of yoga.

 

Level I 50 Hour Immersion: Tadasana & Standing Poses

The focus of this immersion is on Tadasana and standing poses; using Tadasana (Mountain Pose) as our starting point, we study the structure, anatomy, principal actions and bandhas involved, and proceed to apply the insights to every type of yoga pose. The training includes an introduction to pranayama, yogic meditation, mantra, mudra, yoga therapy and posture correction, yogic philosophy, world view and psychology, ethics, history and scriptures (including the yoga sutras of Patanjali).

Open and appropriate for students of all levels - from beginners looking for the most thorough and high-quality introduction, to certified yoga teachers, who will receive Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) for attending - this course serves as the first segment of Yoga One's 2014 Yoga Alliance Registered 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training for advanced students interested in becoming yoga teachers - yet the focus will be on yoga principles and techniques, as well as on personal development, not on teaching methodologies - so it is also designed to serve those who would like the highest quality training in yoga but are not interested in teaching.

Students who complete this course and are interested in further studies will be eligible for the level II 50 hour training, which will be offered twice in 2014: March 8 - April 6 and July 5 - August 3. Advanced practitioners interested in a Yoga Alliance Registered Teaching Certification (RYT) may then attend the advanced 100 Hour Teaching Methodologies, Practicum & Internship Course.
