Immersive Study Option

& Continuing Education for the RYT

Not everyone has the time or resources to devote to Yoga Teacher Training and Certification. It's a big commitment, and a significant investment in professional development for those wishing to become yoga instructors.

And yet, you may feel drawn to a deeper, more substantive exploration of yoga than even an advanced studio class or workshop can provide.

For those who are interested in this kind of serious, immersive study of yoga, its traditions and texts, and specific aspects of yoga philosophy and practice, we offer a stepped-down program that provides limited aspects of our Yoga Teacher Training program. You will receive a Studio Study Notebook, and access to specific training weekends. Textbooks are optional, and may be purchased through the studio.

To be clear: immersive study alone will not result in certification; you will not be eligible for registration with YA; nor will you be sufficiently trained to teach any yoga class.

 

This option is for folks who wish to deepen their understanding of yoga, and meaningfully expand their own practice, without practicum requirements, and without other intensive instructional aspects of YTT.

Continuing Education for Certified Yoga Teachers:

This immersive study, however, is ideal for continuing education. Thus, we offer our program to registered RYTs as continuing education toward YA requirements. You may earn up to 50 contact hours of CE through this program (30 minimum). This is ideal for the RYT who, perhaps, feels s/he needs more support in developing an appropriate and skilled yoga teaching presence, more practical study and applied understanding of yoga anatomy, more focused study of aspects of the tradition, more training to fill in gaps.

Immersive Study Option includes focus on:

Yoga Philosophy

Pranayama

Deep Relaxation

Establishing Meditation Practice

Texts of the Tradition

Ayurveda Overview

Surya Namaskar

Continuing Ed for the RYT includes the above, and adds:

Practicum sessions (applied study & practice, including Community Class teaching)

Select pose breakdowns

Sequencing & teaching

Meditation focus

Yoga Anatomy

COST: $1,200 (Can be broken into three consecutive, monthly payments.)

Specific dates TBA, but you may refer to our YTT scheduled dates for a general reference, as some sessions will coincide with select YTT weekends.
