200hr Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training
04/11/2017 @ 9:00 am - 11/02/2018 @ 5:00 pm
NOVEMBER 2017 – FEBRUARY 2018
With Michael Dynie, Krista Budgell and Janice DeFilippi
The AYO Teacher Training is designed to take you deep into the heart of yoga as a holistic system that encompasses mind, body and spirit, based on the eight limbs of Astanga Yoga.
Our aim is to help you to take your own practice to a much deeper level, so you can confidently transmit your own understanding of yoga to others from a place of personal experience.
This program is unique because it includes a serious exploration of your own practice through our Mysore program, a self-guided yoga practice in a group setting. Through the ritual of repetition and familiarity, the practice takes us deep into the core of the body and simultaneously promotes the possibility of insight into our own mental processes.
Your growth will be supported by in-depth studies of yoga philosophy, meditation, the anatomy of the body, teaching yoga postures to different levels of ability, the energetics of yoga, safe hands-on adjustments, ethics, pranayama and lifestyle.
