Hot 26+2 Yoga Teacher Training
Starts 8th January 2022
Are you passionate about your Hot 26 + 2 (Bikram sequence) yoga practice and want to go deeper? Perhaps this yoga practice has healed you so profoundly that you want to share this powerfully healing sequence with others. You don't need to be able to do every asana perfectly to become an inspirational teacher!
Work with your favorite Yoga Wild teachers as we guide, inspire and challenge you to dive deep into your practice. Our Teacher Training will not only transform your own practice and deepen your understanding of your own body but will also empower you to apply this powerful experience to guide others.
Our training program offers so much more than just learning a dialogue, the mechanics of each pose or the origins of yoga. You will build confidence, charisma and refine your interpersonal skills to be able to lead a powerful class - one where every student will feel inspired and challenged.
And yes, part of your training will be to practice teach in our fantastic studio to our busy classes!
What you will learn
Proper alignment is critical to harnessing the healing benefits of the Hot 26 + 2 practice. You will discover a new level of depth in each posture, including subtle yet powerful nuances that will transform your practice and those of your students. The benefits of each pose are explored in depth. You will learn the 'dialogue' to conduct a strong class.
Studying the muscles, joints and bones within the human body will enable you to understand how each pose in the sequence works to create the healing benefits of this practice. Specifically, we will also understand how different bodies have varying anatomical differences and why one size doesn't always fit all.
This important module will cover how the different poses should be modified for people who may be healing from injuries or have other limitations. You will be able to apply these modifications to your own practice if required. As a future teacher you will be able assist those who need adjustments to perform the poses effectively.
Voice & Projection
Imagine a room of 35 people in the yoga room and you are just about to teach a 90 minute class. How do you project your voice to keep the energy flowing throughout class? Our training covers practical techniques and tips on how to harness the power of your voice. You will learn how to use your voice to encourage, to challenge, to empathize and to cajole your class to push to their best potential! Our trainers have backgrounds in voiceover work, singing and ballet - we'll give you all the tips of the trade.
The Art of Teaching
Teaching a great class is all about creating a real connection with the room. How do you motivate your class when energy is lagging in Camel Pose? How do you encourage the newbie to keep going while inspiring your advanced students to go deeper? There is a skill involved and one we have honed to a fine art at Yoga Wild. You will learn how to manage the dynamics of your class and how to strike the right balance between challenging your students and being compassionate.
Meditation & Pranayama
The word 'Yoga" means union. Union between mind and body, between breath and energy. Your training will include introduction to yoga sutras, practicing meditation techniques and different pranayama breathing exercises. You will gain awareness of how yoga heals not only the body but also the mind and the underlying life force itself. In doing so, you will have the tools to bring yourself and your students to experience the meditative aspects of yoga.
