Whether you want to teach yoga, or are simply want to deepen your own practice, Empower Yoga 200 Hour Yoga teacher training will enrich and enliven your life.
Structured around the 5 layers of being central to yogic philosophy — the pancamayakosha model) — we will explore how the practices of yoga – from posture, to breath, to meditation, among others – connect you to an integrated sense of self, and ultimately, your most natural teacher, within.
By the end of training, you’ll feel confident leading students one on one, or in a group class in physical practice, breath work, and meditation. You’ll graduate ready to teach a set sequence, as well as able to design your own intelligent, well-rounded classes.
Through the teachings of ancient and contemporary texts, as well as discussion and mentorship with teachers from across yogic backgrounds, you’ll be encouraged to cultivate your own teaching orientation. The ultimate goal of this 200 training is to help you connect with your most grounded, authentic self, so that you may positively inspire on, and off the mat.
