Yoga Teacher Training
Change Your Life.
Experience the transformative power of yoga. Immerse yourself in Breathing Time Yoga’s 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training. Starts January 2018
Deepen your Personal Practice
Ground yourself in the ancient text of Patañjali’s Yoga Sutra which is stunningly relevant to the contemporary world crisis and will offer you the tools that you need for the 21st century. Personal practice is the beginning of the path of the yogi, and a pre-requisite for teaching others from a sincere and heart felt place.
Authentic Teachings from an Honored Lineage
Dive deeply into the lineage of Viniyoga as taught by the luminaries Krishnamacharya, Desikachar, and Kraftsow. Viniyoga is based on the principle that the yoga should be adapted to the student, as each student is unique in both their starting point and goals. This is yoga that addresses each student exactly where they are with practices that will take them in the direction they wish to go.
Learn how to move from your breath as you study the biomechanics of asana; how to adapt asana to your unique physical structure and needs; and observe how asana is adapted to the differing needs of your fellow students. Each yogi is unique! Beyond asana you will learn the foundational techniques of inner yoga to build an integrated practice including pranayama, meditation, the use of sound, visualizations and ritual.
About Teaching Yoga
Take progressive steps to develop your skillfulness as a teacher, culminating in practicum teaching experience. The program recognizes that practicing yoga and teaching yoga are two different but interdependent skills sets. Some students may prefer to take the program for self-development only, but are encouraged to develop their teaching skills as a way of deepening their internal understanding.
Methodology of the Program
Learn through interactive lectures with visual aides, guided experiences, small group interactions and yoga classes. You will find the experience easy to digest and integrate, bringing you to a deeper and broader understanding of yoga. The twelve weekends of the program are spread out over 9 months, so you have time to integrate the material with structured personal study.
Selected Studio Classes Included the Program
Delve into the practice, by taking any Viniyoga class on our studio’s regular class schedule at no additional charge. We want you to take as many Viniyoga classes as possible, so you can from the inside out.
Fridays 6:00 —8:00 pm
Friday afternoons will start with community building conversations with your fellow yogis. After a break for dinner, we will reconvene to study Patañjali’s Yoga Sutra, the original source text for the meaning, practice, and path of yoga, with lively discussion and self-reflection.
Saturdays 8:00 am – 5:00 pm & Sundays 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, with a lunch break from 11:30 - 1:00 pm
Saturday and Sunday mornings start with a yoga asana class. After a short break we will delve into studying the topic of the morning with lecture, Q&A, and experiential exercises. A ninety minute lunch break will allow for rest as well as physical and mental digestion. Afternoons will mirror the morning schedule. Sunday afternoons will end at 3:00 pm so you have time to prepare for re-entry into your life on Monday morning!
The program teachers have decades of experience practicing and teaching yoga.
