Enroll in the 2018 Raja Yoga Level 1 teacher training!
The Raja Yoga School is a 200 hour program that will satisfy all the requirements to become a certified Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance! The foundation of the training is based on the manual for Yogic practice as taught by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras. Asana (seated meditation), Pranayama (breath work), Yama (moral values), Niyama ( self awareness and purification), Pratyahara (observing the mind), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (deep meditation), Samadhi (union with the object of meditation). This is the philosophy we will be studying as well as other sacred texts.
As far as Yogic calisthenics you will learn not only the traditional Hatha Yoga asanas but how to choreograph flowing transitions between postures, Vinyasa. You will learn both dynamic/power flows as well as passive stretching. Focus will also be on properly guiding your students with manual adjustments, verbal cues, and class management. This program seeks to provide a well rounded teacher training course that will fully equip it’s graduates to lead the highest quality Yoga classes possible. The foundation of it’s philosophical root is sound in Ashtanga Yoga, the Eight Limbs of Yoga. Also known as Raja Yoga, the Royal Yogic Path.
The training will be held in Avon, MA over the course of the year. You must be physically present at all training dates to be able to graduate. Cost of training does not include books and dvd's required for the program. Payment arrangements can be made. Contact Philip below for more details.
