Teacher Training


Wild Spirit School of Yoga

ytt-2We are proud to offer a well rounded Yoga Alliance Certified, 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training.

The goal of our 200 hour training is to prepare teachers to be able to teach the foundations of a traditional hatha yoga class. The training will enrich and deepen your own personal experience of yoga, pranayama and meditation as well as help you to develop essential teaching skills.

The first half we will dedicate towards teaching the mechanics of the yoga poses as well as anatomy, physiology and kinesiology in regards to spinal alignment and core stabilization. Emphasis will be on understanding each posture and learning how to effectively cue moving into, out of and working within each asana with the breath.  In the first half of the training, we will also spend a lot of time working in practice teaching to build confidence and help you as a teacher to find your voice and your rhythm.

The second half of the training will build on the foundation of the poses we learn and teach you how to build class sequences in a vinyasa or purposefully put poses together for a common theme or class focus. Also, how to interact skillfully with students through responsive cuing, adjustments and modifications.

We will practice and learn how to teach pranayama methods for a beginner level yoga class. We will learn and practice meditation and yoga’s teachings of the mind and how it works. We will discuss and explore intuition and being receptive to your classes needs. We will work through special content such as Finding Your Voice, Energy of the body, Ayurvedic ytt-bookMedicine, Sanskrit, Yoga Sutras and the Language of Hatha Yoga.

We highly recommend at least 1 year of a regular yoga practice as well as taking yoga classes at Wild Spirit and with Jennifer to make sure we are the right teacher training and approach for you.
