Methodology of the Teacher Training Programs
• Individualized Teaching and Learning
Integrative Yoga uses an individualized approach with the understanding that each student’s needs and each teacher’s approach to teaching are unique. We believe that each Yoga teacher should receive comprehensive and in-depth instruction in the wider vision of Yoga as well as detailed experiential instruction/practice in the tools and techniques of Yoga. With this foundation, the teacher is given a range of possibilities for the creative teaching of Yoga from which they can evolve their own unique style and approach based on their vision of Yoga and the solid foundation provided by the Integrative Yoga Teacher Training program.
• Experiential Approach to Education
The Integrative Yoga Teacher Training program focuses on creative experiential learning. All the key concepts of teaching such as class design, sequencing, pacing, use of voice and instructions, and hands-on adjustments are presented in a concise and clear format that is creative, comprehensive and engaging.
• Take Your Teaching Beyond the Yoga Classroom
The Integrative Yoga Teacher Training individualized experiential approach provides a format in which new Yoga teachers can focus on their specific interest groups such as medical settings, education, recovery and business as well as Yoga classes for the general public at gentle, intermediate and vigorous levels.
• A Multidimensional Approach to Yoga Postures with Extensive Support
The Integrative Yoga Teacher Training program are supported by an extensive array of materials including the Yoga Teacher Toolbox with over 1,000 videos on the Yoga Toolbox App. The Toolbox and App provide a multidimensional approach to the asanas with a precise and in-depth understanding of how asanas work at the physical, energetic, emotional, and spiritual levels, and how to modify them for individual needs.
