300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training

Taproot Yoga’s 300-Hour Teacher Training will be an intensive immersion into the physical practice of Hatha Yoga from a Therapeutic perspective based on the teaching of Krishnamacharya and later his son, Desikachar, founder of the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram, a yoga center in Madras, India. The approach to Hatha yoga from this lineage has been called ViniYoga and is a highly individualized approach that tailors the practice to each student’s specific physical condition, emotional state, age, personality, and constitution. In this way, the yoga practice is designed to fit the person as opposed to making the student fit into a pre-determined practice, thus giving the student the tools to make progress on their chosen path.

 

This training will include Anatomy & Physiology as it applies to the practice with a strong emphasis on becoming more embodied and learning how to cue your classes to empower students to know and listen to their own bodies' deep wisdom. We will map our bodies, and learn our own anatomy through the use of Yoga Tune-Up Therapeutic Balls, other props, self-massage, somatic movement, . We will map each other's anatomy through refining our assessment skills, the use of kinesio tape, gentle assists and yogassage.

 

Students will learn how to take care of their body/mind through breath, movement, meditation, diet, and lifestyle choices.

 

We will explore the Cosmology of Yoga and how this applies to our daily lives on a tangible level, including the study of Ayurveda (The Science of Life, Sister Science of Yoga) and the Energetics of Life and the human mind/body.

 

I believe that this will be a transformational process that will engage all aspects from intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual. It will give you the tools to confidently guide your students towards their personal goals by facilitating your own deep dive into the advancement of your own practice of self-study and self-actualization.

 

I am so very grateful to be able to pass on the knowledge that has been shared with me by my teachers. This knowledge and these practices have transformed my life. They have empowered me to be an active participant in creating the life I choose and accept the life that is right in front of me. Yoga has given me so many gifts over the years; relief from anxiety, a strong and healthy body, the resiliency to recover that good health when it has faltered, perspective, peace, self-love and greater compassion for myself and others.

 

It would truly be an honor to have you join us.

In Gratitude and Respect,

Freia, Lyndsey and David
