MORNING VINYASA YOGA CLASSES

You will practice dynamic, powerful Vinyasa Flow classes with Rachel Berryman so that you can deepen your practice as a yoga practitioner first. Rachel Berryman is the lead teacher of this 300 hr yoga teacher training and you can practice and get to know her before even coming to the course. 

These classes are intended to build intense strength in the body and to utilize this existing flexibility for deeper posture variations. Emphasis is placed on incorporating topics from workshops into the asana practice so that you can experience and feel the poses in your own body. Students will also be acquainted with creative, intelligent sequencing and translating anatomical principles across asana families in order to arrive in deeper, more advanced posture variations. Proper practice and spotting techniques of advanced inversions will be applied in the morning classes when necessary. Your morning classes may include deep backbends, lotus and hip openers, arm balances and transitions, handstand and forearm stand. Want to practice some classes with Rachel

TEACHING METHODOLOGY AND PRACTICUM

We recognize and encourage that each teacher defines and refines their own teaching voice. We are not into creating a cookie-cutter monologue of how and what teachers should say in their classes. In these sessions, we integrate knowledge and principles discussed in Alignment classes in order for teachers to adapt their manner, body language, tone, words, and public speaking to fit their audience’s needs and requests. You will be teaching in small groups every day and will be observing, analyzing, and assisting in other students’ classes. You will receive constructive feedback from the other students and your teachers.

Topics include:

  • Identifying your dominant learning style and learning how to teach based on others’ learning styles.

  • Communication skills such as group dynamics, time management, and the establishment of priorities and boundaries.

  • How to address the specific needs of individuals and special populations, to the degree possible in a group setting.

  • Speech patterns - active vs. passive language and the effective use of each; positive and conscious communication; habitual speech and communication patterns

  • Principles of demonstration, demonstration techniques, observation, assisting and correcting​.

 

The 300 hour yoga training in details 

ALIGNMENT AND HANDS-ON ADJUSTMENTS

In our theory classes, we learn how to organize the body to allow safety in the deepest expressions of asanas. The deepest expression is not the ‘most advanced’ shape of a pose, but the breath and concentration required to practice it. We explore this deeper expression through a dual approach of understanding safe and effective alignment for different bodies and basic biomechanics for functional movement, as well as how to adjust postures for healing as well as for depth.

Much of your time will be spent on expanding your existing knowledge of asanas while paying attention to key alignment and anatomical structures in order to deepen your own practice as well as learning how to guide others safely into poses - verbally, visually, and physically.

You will have many opportunities to practice hands-on adjustments with feedback from your teachers and peers.

Topics include: 

  • Alignment principles for postures grouped by the foundation so that you can create yoga sequences that flow easily from one pose to another (standing, seated, all 4's, hands, etc) 

  • Learning the five categories of Asanas (standing poses, forward bends, backbends, twists, and inversions) and the key poses & alignment principles in each category

  • Developing alignment maps for each of the five categories of asanas to find resemblance in the foundation, and how to build upon this foundation and create ideal transitions

  • Physical benefits and cautions for yoga postures so that you can create more customized classes for your private clients

  •  The Art of Touch & Adjustment Theory. When to adjust, how to adjust, when not to adjust, how to ask permission.

  •  Advanced Assisting – Hands-on and Verbal

  •  Advanced Posture workshops (lotus variations and deep hip openers; arm balances and transitions; headstand variations and transitions; pincha mayurasana; handstand and scorpion; deep backbends—dropbacks and deeper variations of urdhva dhanurasana, pigeon, dancer pose, etc)

  •  Safe Spotting Techniques for deeper inversions so that you can assist your own students with confidence

  •  Creating Sequences and developing mini-flows based on alignment principles and through correct transitions between asanas 

  •  Anatomical Sequencing and working towards a Peak Pose / Pathway Sequencing

  •  Yoga and Injuries

  •  Sanskrit for advanced poses

  •  Creating and Leading your own Workshops

ANATOMY

We focus on an experiential, engaging breakdown of the human body as it relates to the practice of yoga. You won’t just sit there and take notes; you will learn how to directly apply this essential information to your practice and your teaching.

On this 300-hour course, we explore deeper understanding of anatomy and physiology modalities from Eastern and Western medicine and their applications to traditional yoga philosophy. We strive to understand the body and the practice so that we can understand how to apply the practice to each individual with any style or level of understanding to create personalized, functional, and safe classes to bring students to their deepest mind-body edge.

 

Topics include:

  • Practical applications of anatomy in specific yoga postures

  • Comparative anatomy and understanding different body types

  • Focus on the 4 systems that allow and restrict movement – Skeletal, Muscular, Nervous System and Connective Tissues

  • Practical anatomy with a major emphasis on muscular and skeletal structures and in-depth study of anatomical and skeletal differences (i.e. compression, tension, proportion and orientation theory)

  • Scapular Stability and strength in deeper arm balances and inversions

  • Regional study of specific joints of the body – Hip, Knee, Foot, Spine, Shoulder, etc

  • Role of Fascia in Flexibility

  • Breathing and respiratory system and the role of breath in asana

  • Therapeutic applications of postures and working with injuries in asana class

  • Yin Yoga Theory and basic Meridian Theory

  • Basics of Thai Massage and relationship to Meridian Theory

PHILOSOPHY

Expanding on your 200-Hour Yoga Philosophy foundation, you will dive deep into classical yogic texts such as the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. Further emphasis will be placed on an exploration of The Yoga Sutras and 8-Limbs, moving beyond a general introduction and into deeper understanding and application. You will be challenged to contemplate and question who you are, what your truths are, and your ultimate role as both a student and a teacher. Do you want to meet Laura, your philosophy teacher? 

AYURVEDA

Ayurveda, the Vedic science of health and longevity, is intrinsically linked to the practice of yoga. Ayurveda provides a practical approach to a healthy diet and lifestyle tailored to the individual on a personal basis. These two sister sciences were developed together and traditionally are taught together. At the 300-hour level teacher training, you will spend extra time on this holistic science of life and longevity. You will explore diagnosis, prevention, care, diet, daily routine, application in asana practice, and much more!

MEDITATION AND PRANAYAMA

In this module, we expand on your 200-Hour foundation and introduce more advanced practices of mantra, meditation, and pranayama. You will practice chanting and mantra daily, while taking a deeper look at the science of sound and the significance of the Sanskrit language. Pranayama sequencing, ratios, and practices will be examined. Experiential understanding of Eastern anatomy, the subtle body, chakras, and nadis will be cultivated.

At the end of the course, you will guide each other through a 30-minute pranayama or meditation class.
