Mindful Yoga Teacher Dual Certification April 22
This 10 weekend unique and comprehensive program blends the best of mindfulness and yoga practices so that you can teach safely and with confidence. Our teachers have a long history of teaching yoga and meditation in a variety of settings.
This course is specifically designed for those who have a strong interest in sharing mindfulness and yoga practice, including mindfulness facilitators, school teachers, or health care providers, giving you the tools to empower yourself and your participants.
The course merges the two wisdom streams of Hatha Yoga and
Mindfulness. As a Mindfulness Everyday Yoga Teacher graduate, you leave our 200+ hour training with the skills you need to lead safe, encouraging and contemplative Mindful Yoga classes as well as facilitating Mindfulness groups in community, educational and
professional settings. Explore and deepen your knowledge of Yoga philosophy and history, anatomy and physiology, yoga ethics/lifestyle, teaching methodology, mindfulness meditation, and breath work through hands-on instruction, independent study, and assignments. You will learn how to safely and confidently offer modifications, posture options, clarification of contraindications, and create a complete series of classes with progressive levels of difficulty.
SMART (Stress Management and Resiliency Techniques) curriculum trains participants to better manage work-related and personal stress, in order to cultivate emotional balance, compassion, and enhanced relationship to self and others, as well as incorporate mindfulness into yoga instruction.
The course will provide information on the Business of Yoga and
will address how to earn a supplemental income teaching in studios, community centres and private students by understanding the ethical professional obligations, tax benefits and implications.
