Who else teaches like this?”

QUICK OVERVIEW

Our 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified Teacher Training emphasizes learning, PRACTICAL APPLICATION and LIFE TRANSFORMATION, rather than just theoretical knowledge. Our students arrive, sometimes unsure of their paths or their yoga practice, and leave shining, confident, full of purpose, direction, love and excitement, ready and confident to teach.

Through Asana, practical philosophy, spiritual lectures, private coaching, group work, and jungle style community living and much more, students learn to take Yoga off the mat in a wonderfully practical way, empowered to create the life that they choose and find the community that they need.

We teach XianYoga, a revolutionary new approach to Yoga that allows students to deeply understand their own bodies and discover what’s best for each individual. Through our teaching style and constant personal attention, with adjustments and variations, students intrinsically understand how and why to do postures a certain way, how to adapt it to their own bodies, what the benefits are, or how to work up to more challenging postures.

The teachings focus on feeling inside during each and every movement, FULL BREATH CONSCIOUSNESS, never crunching one side to open another, being able to take a full unrestricted breath in every posture and NEVER feeling pain or discomfort, – just full PHYSICAL and ENERGETIC OPENENSS through excellent alignment and awareness.

Students learn FULL CONSCIOUS JOURNEYS into and out of each posture. In sync with FEELING the body as a full unit the entire time and being one with breath always. Being present. Now. On and off the mat.

At the Ashram we invite our students to TRANSCEND the mat and learn to TRANSFORM the life and yoga practice of anybody, from beginners to teachers, newbees and seasoned practitioners alike. To take it to the next level.

THE DETAIL

Learn to teach XianYoga, an alignment based new approach to Yoga

for the student that actually wants to LEARN Yoga.

Become confident to teach a simple, logical, yet revolutionary new approach to Yoga that tweaks traditional postures in sometimes just the slightest magical way, transforming the way your students will experience their bodies; transforming the way your students will ever think about Yoga.

Every posture becomes a new revelation through XianYoga.

Help your students to understand their Bodies, their Mind, different Yogic techniques, Yoga Philosophy, and why Yoga is a wonderful lifestyle to a happier more balanced life.

This is not a new Style of Yoga,

but relearning and experiencing what Yoga was always meant to be!

The program is designed for you to become a HATHA Yoga teacher, although the principles learned here can be applied to any style of Yoga. This will enable you to teach Hatha Yoga classes, but also teach style independent private, one on one alignment classes, as well as alignment workshops for everyone!

Come and find your own voice!

Join us and become a sharer of this fantastic life changing knowledge

 

When you leave here you will:

  • Understand the principles behind movement and stretching
  • Experience on your own body what it feels like when YOUR body feels absolutely fabulous, when YOUR body is open and your energy channels are open.
  • Know what it looks/feels like when YOUR STUDENTS bodies and energies are open.
  • Be comfortable with the magic of adjusting your students, to ensure absolutely no pain, crunching or discomfort.
  • And how to relieve your students discomfort in sitting postures and many other challenging asanas.
  • You will understand the art of developing and giving variations for all different kinds of students.
  • As well as understand how the body works so completely, so that you can apply those principles to any asana (posture), even those we did not discuss.
  • By giving you the tools, experience and practice, you will UNDERSTAND sequencing of Asanas for a class. You will be able to put together your own sequences for different lengths, for variations to difficult postures or for varying levels, and themes as well as ‘Studio Yoga’.
  • You will be able to teach a 10 -15 hour workshop on XianYoga alignment – the first 10 days of our Intensive Immersion (principles behind standing, sitting, walking, forward bend, side bend, chest openers, turns and combinations),
  • The Yoga Principles (philosophy and history) workshop,
  • And Bandhas, Mudras, Pranayamas and Meditation.
  • Have gained an intrinsic understanding of how to be a good teacher, from projecting your voice, to holding space, to when to speak and when not, how to teach multiple levels of students in one class, how to weave spiritual themes into your classes and how to get vast amounts of info into one class without overloading your students.
  • You will be able to transform your student’s yoga practice forever, no matter their experience level or style.
  • You will have taught many, many, many classes
  • and much more…

You will leave here as an experienced teacher, not a note reader!

The Yoga Teacher Training with a difference!

  • At the XianYoga YTT, you will not learn a pre-written script to get students through a class of general movement, but through your own extensive understanding, experience and practice, you will intrinsically understand Yoga.
  • First YOU learn to apply all principles yourself. From that base you will learn to teach. You will teach from knowledge and experience, rather than from notes.
  • You will not receive ready made sequences or templates for how to teach. But you will learn how to MAKE them.
  • You will receive constant personal feedback from Xian and your fellow students. You will learn through lectures and demonstrations, but most of all through practice and repetition, your own and listening to others.
  • We will share with each other what we learn every day. Slowly sharing will turn into teaching.
  • You will teach classes to other students, who will deliberately do things ‘wrong’ so that you can learn how to adjust, tailor your classes to different levels, give variations etc.
  • You will practice to give talks on various Yogic subjects and teach many asana, pranayama and meditation classes.
  • It’s going to be a lot of work and ‘putting yourself out there’, but it’s going to be a lot of fun too. The most important thing to know is that nobody can make you into a teacher, only YOU can. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it!

Remember when we were doing the afternoon sharing? Let’s pretend we do that!

It takes the pressure out of the word ‘teaching’.

Let’s share what we learn with each other every day.

It not about becoming somebody else, but about becoming YOU, about finding your voice,

becoming your voice and then teaching/sharing what you love.
