A One Month Intensive – 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certification
March 3, 2014 to March 28, 2014
Directed by Kino MacGregor, Miami Life Center presents a roster of teachers who dedicate their lives to the study and practice of yoga and have come together to offer more than 200 hours including hands-on practice, practical clinics, therapeutics, anatomy, subtle-body, the art of teaching and more.
A yoga teacher does more than just recite poses, they respect and have studied the art of teaching. Join Miami’s premiere Ashtanga Studio as we present a comprehensive and all-encompassing teacher training program helping prepare you to become a teacher in the industry of yoga.
Our philosophy is based on tradition. This is the only Yoga Alliance Registered School program in South Florida to present the Ashtanga Yoga method with a wide-spectrum approach including a comprehensive knowledge of this lineage based practice from teachers directly Certified and Authorized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The result is a strong graduating teacher prepared to teach physical postures, and to continue the art of learning and teaching and guiding others down the path of this ancient spiritual practice. You will be required to learn the traditional method of counting Sanskrit Vinyasas and giving physical adjustments associated with key postures from the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. Please note that you will not become a “Certified” Ashtanga Yoga teacher upon completion of the program. Only R. Sharath Jois in Mysore can give you the official Authorization or Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga from the Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Institute. Upon completion of this one month intensive, you will receive a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance graduation Certificate.
Upon graduation teacher trainees should be able to:
Continue a personal Mysore Style Ashtanga Yoga practice
Learn the traditional counted Sanskrit Vinyasa system and its application to teaching
Teach with solid verbal instruction and precise hands-on adjustments
Understand how anatomy and physiology relate to yoga practice
Have a basic understanding of the art of meditation and science of pranayama
Feel comfortable teaching with a solid grasp of the fundamental yoga postures
Look at and understand students’ bodies on a physical and an energetic level
Draw from basic knowledge of the subtle body and yoga philosophy
Through our experience-based approach, students will also experience first-hand, the transformative physical, mental, and spiritual effects of an intelligent yoga practice.
