It's an exciting time for Teacher Training at The Yoga Room. We're running two tracks of our 200 Hour therapeutics-based training right now - one began in January and the other in May. The January track is at that point in their training where they're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel - they've gotten through (or are getting through) the big scary milestones of assisting in public classes and doing their student teaching, and they're starting to think about their first steps as yoga teachers after their November graduation.
And the May track has gotten through several sessions of classroom learning and is at the starting point of the scary (awesome) milestones.
It's interesting to see how each Teacher Training group has a unique personality. The January track is energized and fiery. The May track is quietly confident and determined.
The common thread between the two groups is, of course, their interest in making yoga accessible and beneficial to a broad population of practitioners. And, as I wrote in last week's studio newsletter, their personal and professional success prior to enrolling in yoga teacher training.
This is a unique characteristic of our training. Because of the focus of our training - therapeutics-based, Yoga for EveryBody - we attract a very specific of audience. Our trainees have life experience. They have practiced yoga in the context of raising families and nurturing careers, and they each have experienced a unique and profound set of benefits from their practices.
Our trainees' life experience is a really powerful addition to our teacher training program because it enriches our discussions, provides diverse perspectives, and helps shape the trainees as future yoga teachers.
We're currently in Early Registration for our 2016 Teacher Training program. Yoga Teacher Training is a transformative experience and it's important to find the training that feels like the right fit for you.
If you are interested in deepening your yoga practice and possibly even teaching yoga, I encourage you to come see us at our Teacher Training Information Session this Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
Emily and I will give an overview of our program and we'll be happy to answer any questions you have. We look forward to seeing you then!
