Yoga Ink - Now a PEI Registered Private Training School
Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour and the advanced 300 hour courses begin fall of 2017!
Yoga Ink is a registered private training school in PEI for Yoga Teacher Training, both the foundational 200 hour course and the advanced 300 hour course. New 200 hour and 300 hour courses are beginning September 2017! Funding possibilities exist with the new status with student loans from banks and perhaps from Skills PEI.
The foundations course is eclectic and comprehensive delving into many yoga topics with detail such as asana, meditation, pranayama, how to design classes, how to demonstrate, speak, teach! And many, many other topics are introduced and studied including philosophy, the Bhagavadgita, the Sutras of Patanjali, ethics, and lifestyle. A qualified guest instructor teaches basic anatomy.
Many styles of yoga are introduced to see how they vary in action but are similar in intent. Students get to "try on" Yin, Astanga, Kundalini, Power, Hot, and Restorative and participate via dvds the styles of some of today's top teachers i other styles.
Students teach each other almost every weekend getting comfortable with public speaking, "teaching" vs. "leading" classes, learning to see the way the energy moves in a posture, and probably the most fun - how to assist and how to adjust students in postures.
The course is eight weekends, usually they begin in September and end in the spring.
The advanced 300 hour program is thirteen weekends and has a yoga therapy bend to it. Certified teachers attending bring with them their style and experiences which help round out the course. Each weekend we meet students teach each other with classes for people with special needs (such as movement disorders, scoliosis), classes that target specific body parts, classes that spark their interest (such as kids yoga, Yoga for Compassion Fatigue). In addition there are great books to read and discuss, yoga topics to explore deeply, lifestyles choices to try on, and much much more!
