300 HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
JULY 5th - AUGUST 2nd
THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL YOGA TEACHER TRAINING.
Bodhi Yoga Academy dives further into anatomy, philosophy, history, inclusivity and sequencing in this 300 hour yoga teacher training. This training is an overflow from our 200 hour. There will be a concentration on advanced knowledge of anatomy, historical contexts of yoga and asana sequencing. We will also introduce advanced asanas and explore the full Ashtanga Primary series.
We strongly recommend that you familiarize yourself the Primary Series before you arrive to make the most out of this training. (This means either finding a local Ashtanga teacher or practicing with videos online from someone like Kino MacGregor)
Bodhi Yoga Academy stresses proper alignment and understanding of the history and culture that yoga emerged within. We will be working on developing our independent self-practices with the guidance of experienced teachers. We also focus on practice-teaching and the business of yoga including, retreats, intensives, workshops and other business ventures.
While there is a strong focus on asana and becoming a safe asana teacher, Bodhi is dedicated to teaching yoga philosophy and history in accurate historical contexts. This means we dive into topics including what it means to culturally appropriate, how yoga can be "exclusive," colonization within a historical context, and how to create a space that is welcoming to all people from different backgrounds and bodies. We will be discussing religion, politics, body inclusivity, gender, racism, sexism, cultural appropriation, religious symbols and colonization and how these things are relevant to becoming a yoga teacher. No agenda will be forced upon you, but open discussions will be had on all topics previously mentioned.
**We expect great things from you. We truly want to certify teachers that are open-minded and willing to take a look at hard topics that many choose to avoid. We will not accept spiritual bypassing in this training. This means we take self-reflection seriously.
Guest speakers will include but are not limited to:
