Studio W.I.S.E offers Yoga Teacher Training along aside Dorothy Guerra
This individualized learning program allows student to work at their own pace without stress. Students are encouraged to have their own voice and not get lost in the shuffle of a large group.
The curriculum requires reading, practice and teaching time. The homework is pre set and done on your own time with guided supervision. Through intense group discussion we learn the dynamics of all root poses and cover the benefits, cautions, modifications,prenatal aspects, restorative aspects, advanced techniques, verbal cueing and hands on correcting. The teaching techniques are based on Hatha Yoga principles and developing a Vinyasa (flow) teaching style.
In this area the group will be given Asana class regularly which will enable the students to become familiar with their own practice and begin to develop insight from within themselves in order to effectively teach from the heart. The most authentic teacher is one that uses knowledge based from their own experiences.
We will look into the aspects of breathing, stress management, mental awareness and various medical conditions. How to incorporate Yoga into the lives of those that suffer from illnesses such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, scoliosis and other major/minor illnesses.
The history and origins of yoga is an important foundational base of knowledge for instructors. We will study the 8 limbs of yoga, the Bhagavad Gita and Patangali's Yoga Sutras. This area will be primarily group discussion and open students up to introspection on personal morales and values. We will also reflect on society expectations and the behaviors of humankind.
PRANAYAMA AND MEDITATION
We will cover the various breathing techniques used in Yoga practice such as Kapalabhakti, Alternate Nostril, and Ujayi. We will also look at the benefits of Meditation and the approach to various styles.
This section will focus on the human body. Understanding the major systems being the digestive, respiratory, muscular, nervous and skeletal system. Students will be expected to recognize and identify various structures of the body by the end of the program.
Students will be expected to teach and assist classes within the group. In addition mock classes will be organized by the studio to allow students to develop confidence and an ability to work with other individuals in correcting postures and offering modifications. Feedback within the group will be an important aspect to the program
