About the Training

This program is a 300-hour Teacher Training designed to motivate you to truly understand who you are and what you offer the yoga community. In this age of "mutt" yoga - yoga styles that have been derived from many many different systems - it can be hard to feel grounded in what and why you teach the way you do. We offer techniques and explorations that move you towards an organization of your special gifts and how to present them within your yoga teaching.

You will learn a deep level of anatomy that supports particular yoga asana, a broad and inclusive way of bringing in your understanding of yogic philosophy and that which is bigger than you and sequencing that will allow you to take your students toward challenging asana in a safe and effective way.

You will strongly consider today's culture in order to honor the idea put forth by Krishnamacharia - to "teach who is in front of you." We will help you see that person and learn to communicate in a way that can be heard.

You will:

* Enhance your own yoga practice
* Reinvigorate your love for teaching with clear purpose and passion
* Learn to teach advanced asana, meditation and pranayama
* Learn to teach modifications for injuries
* Practice speaking clearly and effectively
* Design classes that balance safety, tradition, and fun
* Better understand the poses and their effects
* Better understand the historical and cultural influences on yoga practice and teaching
* Study the art of hands-on assisting
* Understand how to incorporate your yogic philosophy into your teaching

This training includes:

* The 9-day Forrest Yoga® Advanced Teacher Training with Heidi Sormaz and Cat Allen
* 4 Yoga Tune-Up® Immersions; Core, Shoulders, Hips, Anatomy with Lillee Chandra
* The Yin Yoga Teacher Training: Mindfulness Module with Josh Summers
* 4 weekends with Heidi and Cat to integrate all of the teachings into a unique, informed Fresh offering.

At the end of this training you will:

* be eligible for the YA 500 HR RYT Level
* have met 50% of the requirements to be a YTU certified teacher
* be able to label your classes Forrest-Yoga Inspired

What is Fresh Yoga?
Fresh Yoga honors tradition, takes the best of tradition and updates yoga teaching by teaching teachers how to teach students to work in an intelligent way within any system, touch their students with care, create sequences that combine safety and fun, and really understand the lineage and the why of what they are asking students to do.
