Core Yoga – Yoga Pilates Training Course
In this five-day continuing education program you will study, practice, and learn to teach a full 75 minute Core Yoga class, blending the traditional principles and techniques of yoga with the modern precision of Pilates. This dynamic and inspiring class aims to strengthen and mobilize the body, enhance posture and body awareness, reduce tension, and build strength and support in the abdomen and low back for better overall health and well-being.
Core Yoga is a body/mind fusion that blends strength, stamina, mobility, breath-work, and meditation, offering movements from both the yoga and Pilates traditions. This practice utilizes Vinyasa (flow) connecting elements to link together a sequence of movements that brings strength and mobility to the body, and as each individual develops their practice a more dynamic flow will ensure that there is a cardiovascular component to the program as well.
In a Core Yoga class students receive the benefits of both the rich teachings 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. This course is especially beneficial to yoga instructors, personal trainers, mind-body fitness 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.
