For aspiring teachers and serious students of yoga, Namaste's 200hr Teacher Training is a comprehensive yoga teacher training program that combines the smooth, breath-centered flow of Vinyasa yoga with precise art and science of alignment. Teacher Trainees will begin each day with an in depth pranayama (breathing) and meditation practice followed by an intense asana (postural yoga) practice that focuses on a different family of poses each session. After a thorough physical exploration of an asana theme, the rest of the day is spent learning how to translate this newly and more clearly understood personal practice into effective teaching. Days often include rigorous classroom inquiry, posture labs, self enquiry and practice teaching. Students in the Teacher Training will also study anatomy and physiology, explore yoga’s philosophy, investigate Subtle Body and Ayurvedic Science.
