Introducing, Inspiring Authenticity, for curious seekers who want to learn a holistic approach to teaching and living the practice of yoga.
This training kicks off on August 2, 2017 and we'll spend three weekends together totally immersed in yoga philosophy, history, anatomy and self reflection.
Your commitment will be for four full days over the first three weekends of August (Friday - Monday) plus three Wednesday night online workshops happening in between our weekend sessions.
There is also a self study online anatomy training component, workbooks, journalling and reading to ensure you feel adequately equipped to begin teaching yoga.
After August, you will have my support and encouragement as you complete 10 hours of practicum teaching (paid or unpaid) and 10 practice hours before graduating in December.
This training features an intimate group setting with only 10 participants being accepted into the live portion held at my studio in Indian Head, Saskatchewan. This ensures that you'll receive plenty of attention & support throughout our time together.
Because Surya Yoga is nestled quietly on our in town property, you'll get plenty of time in nature to walk, contemplate, have a picnic or simply just sit around the fire enjoying solitude or the company of friends. It is truly an ideal location for reflection, learning, sharing and growth!
I believe that the best yoga teachers are those who teach from their heart, rather than from a textbook. This training is as much about self discovery as it is about learning how to teach the practice of yoga. By saying YES to this training course, you'll be saying YES to a more authentic life lived in alignment with your core desired feelings & soul aligned goals.
You'll soon discover that yoga is about so much more than the poses!
Of course, in this training you’ll learn how to do the poses. You'll also learn how to teach the poses with clarity, and confidence. You'll graduate feeling confident that you are able to keep your students safe and connected to their bodies as they move through their yoga practice.
My name is Robin. I am the owner & head instructor at Surya Yoga. I began teaching yoga in 2010, and opened Surya Yoga in 2014. In 2015, I taught my first 200 hour training, graduating 10 teachers, many of whom are currently teaching regularly in and around Regina & Indian Head.
I believe yoga should be fun, and it is a way for us to deepen our understanding of who we are and how we tick. Ultimately, yoga can vastly improve our quality of life & our relationships with each other and the planet we live on.
During our time together we will deep dive into the practice, teaching & tradition of yoga. We will also go on a journey of self discovery & awakening.
In addition to our immersive weekends in August, we will also have weekly online workshops about very specific, valuable, and important topics such as yoga ethics, developing a meditation practice, learning how to teach meditation and extensive business building training.
Also included in this groundbreaking training:
15 hours of yoga practice videos & meditation recordings
opportunity for in person practice either in Regina or Indian Head
Practicum teaching with support from me for an additional four months beyond our training days in August.
You'll leave this training feeling confident, prepared and fully supported as you launch your yoga teaching career.
