[Live Streamed & In Person] 200 HR Yoga and Mindfulness Teacher Training 2021-2022
Sep 17, 2021| $3200 – $3500
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.
Mindfulness teaches us to engage with our friends, family, and profession in a way that is more productive and emotionally rewarding.
This training is registered with Yoga Alliance.
Spira Power Yoga is also certified by Washington State as a licensed vocational school.
Why learn with us
Yoga is not just a workout. Yoga is a philosophy and a meditative art. Therefore, teacher training should be about enabling students to think, research, and understand.
Spira DOES NOT believe in teaching script memorization and set-sequences. A teacher should understand technique and methodology and construct his or her classes in a way that is safe and creative in mind and body and appropriate for the students who are in class. A well-rounded teacher has a strong grip of anatomy, mindfulness meditation, philosophy, history and an everlasting passion for connecting with people and learning.
Who should take this training?
Wonderful Self-Enrichment for those who DO NOT want to teach.
In-depth amazing curriculum for those who WANT TO teach.
This training is perfect for the practitioner who wishes to deepen their yoga practice, deepen their knowledge about mindfulness, meditation, history, philosophy, anatomy, and self-awareness.
Spira does have a lot of practice teaching during teacher training, but practice teaching can teach you about self-awareness, so you will find it useful whether you are taking the course for self-enrichment or as teacher training. We also have a lot of lectures and book discussions.
Spira’s Teacher Training structure is perfect for the working adult with a family since the meeting times allow you to work around your busy schedule. There is no need to put your life on hold. Meetings are Friday night, Saturday and Sunday once, occasionally twice a month for 9 months.
Our training exceeds 200 hours to allow people a bit of flexibility. Our curriculum is nine months long; it is not realistic to demand perfect attendance since occasional flu or family situation does not discriminate between regular time and yoga teacher training time. You can miss three days or one-weekend block and still have enough hours for the certificate.
We always send out review notes and homework assignments via email. Dora is also available for a quick catch up with a cup of tea.
What will you learn during Spira’s teacher training?
You will learn the art of mindful self-awareness, meditation, the history of yoga and how to 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.
