Abundant Yoga Training

A 5 Module Individual Education Program

Abundant Yoga School is different from other yoga studios in our approach to training.  We recognize and honor the desire for Yoga Alliance credentialing by offering a full 200-hour 6 Module teacher training program, which includes 6 months of mentoring and accountability.  Our approach to developing and discipling our instructors has become our most fulfilling work.  However, we also recognize that this approach may not be what everyone desires or needs.

Our 5 Module individual training program focuses on the unique needs of the practitioner who simply wants to learn more and deepen his/her practice, while also offering continuing education opportunities for currently certified yoga teachers.  Each individual module is a Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) and includes training specific to teaching Christian Yoga.

MODULE 1: THE HEART OF YOGA +

Module 1 – The Heart of Yoga

January 18-20
$150 (or $125 for AY members)

The word yoga means “to join or yoke together” – specifically bringing the mind, heart and body into one harmonious experience. For much of the ancient times, a desire for personal health, long life, freedom and self-understanding gave birth to the practice we know today. The entire system is built on 3 main structures: movement, breathing and meditation. We will utilize this system to explore how a regular practice cultivates a clear, bright mind, open heart and strong capable body.

Topics Include:

  • Understanding Yoga
  • History of Yoga
  • What We Believe at Abundant Yoga
  • The Branches of Classical Yoga - Biblical Comparison/Perspective
  • Chakras & The Endocrine System
