Core Yoga Instructor Training
April 6, 2016 @ 8:00 am - April 10, 2016 @ 4:30 pm
In this five day intensive training program you will practice, study and learn to teach a full 75 minute Core Yoga class, blending the ancient principles of Yoga with the modern precision of Pilates for a dynamic and inspiring class that will strengthen and streamline the body, enhance posture and body awareness, reduce tension and stress, and build strength and support in the abdomen and low back for better overall health and wellbeing.
Core Yoga is a body/mind fusion that blends strength, stamina, flexibility, breathwork, and meditation, offering movements from both the Yoga and Pilates traditions which, along with dynamic breathwork and focussed awareness will purify and balance the body/mind. Core Yoga utilizes Vinyasas (flow) connecting elements to link together a sequence of movements that not only bring strength and flexibility to the body, but as each individual develops their practice a more dynamic flow will ensure that there is a cardiovascular component to the program as well.
Core Yoga is our most popular studio class, as students receive the benefits of both the rich teachings of the ancient practice of Yoga, as well as the core control and dynamic strengthening that the modern practice of Pilates offers. An elective module in our internationally registered Yoga Teacher Training program, this course is also a stand-alone program for those wishing to teach this dynamic fusion class that is suitable for all levels of fitness. This course is open to all, and especially beneficial to yoga instructors, personal trainers, massage professionals, and anyone interested in diversifying their teaching and sharing the benefits of these two body/mind arts.
In this course you will learn:
- The 5 Core Concepts
- An introduction to the study and history of Yoga and Pilates
- Anatomy for Core Yoga
- Cuing, Correcting and Adjusting
- The basics of posture assessment and modifications for special populations
- The business of Core Yoga and the role of a teacher.
