Gaias Alignment Yoga & Yoga Therapy Teacher Training represents a comprehensive presentation of yoga as therapy, and as a vehicle to promote health and a discipline providing genuine well-being. Since the program is an alignment-based training inspired by yoga therapy, the information is much more in-depth than a normal yoga training course.
You will learn about physical anatomy in detail, including sessions with a Therapeutic Touch practitioner, the correct postures for each asana, how different body types need different adjustments, and much more. The aim of the program is to teach you the deeper principles behind body structure, so you can integrate this knowledge. And so you can come from a place of adjusting with the how and why, instead of just rote learning.
This month course will build a really strong foundation for aspiring Yoga Teachers, and even for Yoga Teachers looking to further their education. Inspired by Iyengar Yoga, the Alignment Yoga Teacher Training Course will focus on the proper structural alignment of the body while in asana. In this training program, you will learn a step-by-step methodology for teaching group and individual yoga sessions. This allows you to begin your practice confidently with an extensive toolbox of yoga methods, approaches, and techniques along with the ability to evaluate individual needs and adapt yoga practices accordingly.
You will learn the underlying principles of asanas as the foundation for the spiritual and energetic layers of yoga. As part of the transformational nature of the program, Gaia has tried to make it rich with spirituality as it pertains to todays day and age, instead of more esoteric yogic practices. The course is taught by a team of teachers with over 25 years of combined experience, both in teaching group classes as well as working with clients one-on-one.
