GGY’S 200-HOUR TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
The Good Ground Yoga 200-hour Teacher Training program will take place over the course of 7 months, one weekend a month. Weekends will include Friday evenings and all day on Saturday and Sunday. Our training days will begin with an extended yoga intensive to give you time to study, deepen and tailor your own practice. The afternoon and evening sessions are geared toward developing all the tools you need to grow into a truly gifted teacher. Graduates of this course qualify for Yoga Alliance 200-hour Teacher Training Registration.
Our training is more than just learning how to recite poses and lead a yoga class– it is an opportunity to find your voice and use it to inspire your students on and off the mat and give them (and yourself) a yoga practice for life. You will learn to teach our signature style of yoga “GGY FLOW” (which combines Forrest Yoga, vinyasa flow, core strength and breath awareness) that will get your students feeling and going deeper. Most importantly, you will gain insights into yourself and your unlimited potential to transform not only your students but yourself!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
❍ How to teach our signature style of “flow” safely and intelligently.
❍ Proper alignment and how to modify poses when warranted.
❍ How to teach with your voice and your hands, how to encourage and inspire people, and how to use your body language to enhance a class.
❍ How to give safe and effective hands-on adjustments.
❍ How to read bodies, physically and emotionally, as well as the energy of a group or individual.
❍ How to work with all types of students: from beginners to advanced.
❍ How to work therapeutically and truly help students with injuries or other health issues or limitations.
❍ Basic physiology and anatomy.
❍ Yoga philosophy and the history of Yoga.
