It's been my greatest honor to share the fruits of this practice with the dedicated minds that show up to my pre-dawn classes. I was fortunate to have stumbled upon sincere, devoted, and qualified teachers across India in my own pursuit of training so many years ago. My intention is to bring forward that same caliber of instruction to this training.
It will not be easy - most worthy pursuits are not.But it will transform the way you move and live and perceive the world around you. Such is the fruit of yoga.
This yoga teacher training is modeled after traditional schools of Yoga in India, where a strong focus on student-led teaching begins early on in the schedule. We will collectively dive deep into the greater philosophy of yoga as we intensively practice its meaning and potential in our daily lives.
Carol has been dedicated to the practice and study of Ashtanga Yoga for many years, learning from founding teachers, including Sri K Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois, and she recently returned to Reno from India, where she studied with Saraswathi Jois. She continues to study extensively with her teacher Tim Miller at Ashtanga Yoga Center, Encinitas and has completed in depth trainings with Tim in each of the Primary, Intermediate, and Advanced Series of Ashtanga Yoga. Carol leads the Ashtanga program here at MCY, teaching Mysore Classes weekday mornings, and led classes during the week.
The Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training will teach you the fundamentals of yoga asana, philosophy, anatomy, physiology, and psychology. You will learn the benefits and function of asana, meditation, mantra, and pranayama in order to teach others effectively. In these 20 days of deep immersion with an exceptional team of teachers and peers, you will explore techniques, discuss and learn yoga philosophy and practice teaching. In a supportive environment, you will be encouraged to develop your own teaching style, find your voice and come to understand what the practice of yoga means to you. A teacher not only attracts students through knowledge, but also as an apparent, almost visible, expression of yoga.
