200 Hour Vinyasa Teacher Training - Summer 2017

Whether you're looking to teach or if you’re simply looking to bring your yoga practice to a deeper level, join the 2017  Vinyasa Teacher Training Program at Thames Street Yoga. Led by Patti Doyle, ERYT), Lori Pagliaroni, ERYT, and Erin Coonan Schmidt (RYT) the 200-hour, Yoga Alliance certified program draws extensively from the Krishnamacharya and Sri Dharma Mittra lineage and a love and experience with all types of Vinyasa yoga.

On this four-month journey together, we explore and honor the ancient teachings of yoga, its impacts on our physical and energetic  bodies, the art of  synchronizing  breath and intention and the science of  Vinyasa Krama – creating sequences and patterns designed to open and release specific body parts and energy centers.

Specifically, we will broaden our understanding of yoga and ourselves by learning:

  • How to bring these individual poses to life by creating dynamic, intelligent sequences.
  • Physical anatomy of the body so that you might guide students to deepen a pose, modify due to practice level or injury and know what parts of the body work, and equally important, relax in specific poses;
  • Meditation, pranayama and room-centering techniques, including Sanskrit chants.
  • Partner Yoga
  • Subtle anatomy including the meaning of chakras, bandhas, koshas, nadis, vayus, marma/acupuncture points and how these are influenced by specific asana and pranayama
  • Yogic Philosophy as taught in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita and BKS Iyengar's Light on Yoga
  • Marketing strategies for becoming – and staying! – a yoga teacher, and the universal the Code of Ethics and Standards required to become a yoga teacher.
