200HR Yoga Teacher Training Fall 2020 - Empowered U
We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Our Fall 200HR Teacher Training program runs 8 weekends spread over 5 months (September 2020 through January 2021). The weekends have spaced a minimum of 2 weekends apart to allow for ample time to absorb the material and practice the teaching components.

Each weekend we explore and dissect various layers of practice including history, philosophy, anatomy, physiology, energetics, breathing, psychology, mindfulness, and more. In addition, we will explore various components of teaching methodology during each weekend module including:

  • how to effectively cue and modify postures for all levels and abilities
  • introducing breath work in a progressive and gentle way
  • sequencing classes intelligently according to goals of practice (Restorative versus invigorating)
  • introducing and guiding meditation creatively and cooperatively for diverse needs
  • trauma-informed teaching, consent, adjustments, and language

Our vision is to extract meaning and context from ancient practices and combine this with modern ideas from psychology and exercise sciences in order to create accessible classes while honoring the roots of yoga. It is very clear that no two people share the same experiences, this program opens up the dialogue between many therapeutic and movement modalities empowering through the balance of education and exploration.

This course is perfect for those who want a deeper understanding of yoga and how to implement these practices into daily living as well as those who are interested in leading group classes. For those interested in leading workshops, specialty programs, and private yoga we encourage the 500Hr or 800Hr Program.

Homework, Online & Practicum (60HRS): 

Due to the current public safety measures with Covid, we have decided to shift the schedule to reduce in-classroom contact and allow for more hours to be completed online through our online platform. There are many videos and online learning supports which students can utilize during non-classroom hours in order to gain more anatomy, practice components, and applied instruction. Some students may require more homework or online tutorial hours depending on the level of experience, but it typically averages 2-5HRS/week in addition to the scheduled classroom hours.

In addition to the required weekends’ modules, there will be a practical exam component where students will teach a public class of their choosing.  For those students out of town both the practical/assisted teaching will be arranged in home town. These hours are completed after the scheduled classroom hours.

We accept  15 students per cohort
