Yoga for REAL People w/ Basia Going & Janice Tokaryk
Basia and Janice combine many years of creating and leading teacher trainings, teaching studio classes, and leading workshops and retreats in Canada and around the globe, to bring to you a wealth of knowledge and experience. They have been a dedicated team for many years, which sets the stage for optimum learning and growth.
This teacher training is a unique opportunity for you to answer this calling and enrich your life and the lives of others with aliveness! You can learn how to get better at letting go of habitual patterns that the mind entertains and the body holds. Then, you can release what is stuck and allow the flow of clear thoughts and space. With that, you can then listen deeply to feel vibrancy of each cell and each breath.
The practice of yoga is the practice of getting real! We will use our body, mind, and other tools to realize and come into the heart of who we really are. Do not miss this chance to transform your practice, your teaching, and your life. Learn to be a teacher by becoming a great student!
During the training course, there will be many opportunities to get to know the body. We will explore anatomy and movement patterns: those that invigorate our being and those that damage our health. While a cross-section of required knowledge such as pranayama, meditation, major yogic texts, philosophy and psychology of teaching is covered, our focus will be on making the theory real and relevant to our growth.
Substantial amount of the time will be spent on how to read bodies and skilfully assist students. You will have a strong base as a new teacher to assist and to problem solve. We will spend time on creating interesting sequences, keeping good pacing of a class, and motivating the students. Since teaching requires being ready for all abilities and body types, we will explore creative use of a variety of props and other yoga tools.
Be prepared to work diligently, but with lightness and a sense of humour.
