Why are so many people RAVING about the 200 hr Teacher Training?
One Word: Mindfulness
Mindfulness is what makes Spira different. We call our 200 Hour Training Mindfulness and Yoga because we offer so much more than yoga asana.
Mindfulness allows the mind to become
- more resilient to adversity
- more present to joy
- more efficient at work.
This training will teach you the foundations and history of yoga, anatomy, mindfulness, meditation and how to teach beginners to advanced — not just what is “required” for a quick teaching certificate.
You will learn the art of mindful self-awareness, and meditation, the history of yoga and be well rounded in classical yogic texts. You will dive into anatomy, nutrition, self-care including making time for your own practice. We will discuss students’ different learning styles, different teaching styles, hands on assisting, the business of yoga and more. You will study sequencing and safe and healthy choreography of asanas. You will learn the art of mediation, it’s historical roots and how it developed into a modern mindfulness practice. Your trainers will artfully overlay ancient yoga teachings and embed them into modern science.
We want to make sure that you will feel comfortable teaching at any level; from total beginners starting yoga later in life to advance yogis and flexible gymnasts in their twenties.
At Spira we teach from a deep understanding of anatomy. We keep our classes very much rooted in Western traditions utilizing mindfulness techniques. You will learn how to teach yoga without preaching a particular spirituality.
Completing Teacher Training at Spira will allow you to inspire people from gyms to yoga festivals. The training is also open to folks who simply wish to deepen their knowledge in the field of yoga and gain a better understanding of their own practice.
