Alignment Yoga Teacher Training &
Advanced Studies Program 200hour
Whether you desire a deepening understanding of your practice and/or aspire to teach, we have the experience and expertise to facilitate your growth. Participants will receive extensive instruction in the art and science of Hatha Yoga and the skills needed to safely and competently teach this ancient practice.
Many yoga schools teach the outer form of yoga postures (a knee here, an elbow there…), but neglect teaching the art of modifying the techniques to the needs of individuals. We emphasize that form follows function in the practice of Hatha Yoga. Rather than memorizing endless names and details, you will be encouraged to think for yourself as you refine your observational skills. We firmly believe, to paraphrase the old adage, it’s better to teach a man to fish than to simply give him a fish to eat.
What Sets us Apart
Alignment Yoga is the most experienced yoga training school in Wisconsin, having offered advanced programs since 2003, with approval from the Yoga Alliance and the Wisconsin Educational Approval Board. In addition to our quality instructors and low student-teacher ratio (10:1), we have placed emphasis in the following areas:
- Our exploration of the techniques of asana, pranayama, bandha and kriya are comprehensive and backed with a rigorous study of anatomy and physiology. You will understand not only the inner workings of these techniques, but develop an extensive array of techniques to transmit your understanding to your students.
- Our study of the history and philosophy of the Hatha Yoga practice is guided by instruction from master Sanskrit scholar and former University of Bombay professor Nagindas Sanghavi. Nagindas, a scholar from India with over 70 years’ teaching experience, personally taught the Alignment Yoga staff the grace & beauty of such seminal texts as the Bhagavad Gita and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and those insights are shared with students.
The 200- hour program involves study in the following areas:
- Yoga technique (techniques of asana, pranayama and kriya)
- Anatomy & physiology
- Philosophy & ethics
- Teaching methodology
- Student teaching
- Individually designed electives
The next 200-hour Alignment Yoga Teacher Training program begins January of 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin.
