NOLA YOGA Trainings: Immersion, 200 RYT, and Mentorship Programs

The Yoga Immersion is the first half of the 200-hour Teacher Training Curriculum.  The Immersion deepens your understanding of the practice, while being in conversation with fellow yogins on the path.  Studying in great company gives you greater access to your studentship of yoga.  We raise each other up when practicing in community.  The first half focuses on being a more aware student, while the second half emphasizes how to teach from what you know.

The 200-RYT curriculum focuses on the basic aspects of yoga instruction, by learning how to take the seat of the teacher.  You learn how to language all that you know as a student and then guide others on the mat with your eyes, words, and touch.  When you complete this level, you are ready to embark upon holding the space in which to offer classes.  

After having completed the 200-hour RYS program with NOLA YOGA, you can apply for 200-RYT status with The National Yoga Alliance.

Teachers Immersion: The Art of Touch with Embodied Anatomy

The Art of Touch with Embodied Anatomy, March 10-16, 2018

With Cat McCarthy ERYT-500, YACEP®

Yoga can be defined as both “skill in action” and “relationship.” As a yoga teacher, you have the opportunity to skillfully relate to your students. You can touch them with your eyes, words, and hands, while you hold the space for exploration to unfold. The more you know about the inner workings of your body from the inside out, the more you can help guide that interconnection for others.

In this immersion, Cat will first introduce a relationship between compressive and tensile forces present in your bones and muscles as you embody asana. After which, you will apply that understanding to the role of assisting with a clear vision, encouraging instruction, and supportive touch. This will be a seriously playful integration of theory and practice.
