Teacher Training
Part Time & Intensive Trainings on Maui

ALOHA AND NAMASTE!

A 200hr Yoga Immersion/Teacher Training is a powerful way of deepening your understanding and integration of yoga on the mat, and in your daily life.

Our program is carefully designed to meet all Yoga Alliance requirements for you to be certified as a RYT 200 Yoga Teacher.

We have 2 training options available:

Part Time : Sept 5th 2019 – Feb 23rd 2020
Intensive: Oct 28 – Nov 25th 2019 AND June 1 – 29th 2020

By the end of our time together you will have a gained invaluable insight into your personal practice and know how to modify, support and deepen your practice for life.  Should you wish to, you will be able to move authentically and confidently into the role of Yoga Teacher, laying the foundation for a highly rewarding career in the health and wellness field.

Our trainings are held at Maha Yoga, in our beautiful studio right in the heart of Paia on Maui’s famous North Shore.  Our studio is fully equipped with blankets, bolsters, straps, chairs, blocks, sandbags – all the tools of transformation we need to go deeply into the practice in a way that is safe, healing and empowering.

All your required hours are contact hours – spent with our HIGHLY EXPERIENCED team of yoga teachers and Ayurvedic practitioners.

These contact hours are a combination of your (personal) practice hours guided by Karin, observation hours observing Karin teaching your fellow students and the public and practicum teaching hours in front of Karin.

Observational hours provide an amazing opportunity to watch experienced teachers teach and develop within yourself the invaluable skill of observation, crucial to teaching well.   Your insights from these sessions will deepen your understanding and application of what we explore in our methodology and anatomy classes.

The final week of the training is where you will step more confidently into the “seat of the teacher” as you guide your fellow students through a full practice (practicum hours), showing your understanding and application of all you have learnt. Although these sessions are counted as your designated practicum hours you will actually begin “teaching” and guiding your fellows students right from the beginning of the training!

Your final practicum “exam” session will be recorded for you and will be followed with a review session by your peers and Karin, providing invaluable insight for everyone involved into how to refine and enhance our teaching skills. This will include subjects such as effective sequencing, cultivating your teaching voice, the use of precise, appropriate and inclusive language, giving adjustments, the use of props and variations, sharing of Yogic philosophy and creating an inviting, respectful and inspiring class environment.

Even should you not wish to start teaching immediately after you have finished the course I have found that teaching others is a highly effective way of helping you to retain all the information and experiences you received over the months. Guiding others through the practice also cultivates observational skills, confidence in speaking publicly and in leading groups. These are skills we can take into any aspect of our work and lives!

Interwoven throughout the training we will look at the “Business of Teaching Yoga”  where we use vision boards, coaching exercises and group discussions to explore and clarify our personal and teaching values, life vision, and goals.  We will explore the Role of the Yoga Teacher today and how to present an authentic and professional image through various social media and online platforms.  We will review our professional and personal Code of Ethics and look at how to make yoga inclusive to all!
