In this very special 5 day teacher training, Seane Corn we take you deeper into the process of exploring the subtle, physical and spiritual energies involved in finding one’s own unique self expression and facilitating transformational journey work for our students. This training is about cultivating your personal strengths as a teacher and/or student, developing a strong and confident voice, and how to turn a simple class into a soul-inspiring experience.
Many teachers are taught the mechanics: alignment, sequencing, asana, pranayama, meditation – the traditional and rich history of yoga. Yet, they are left yearning for a way to bring their students into a place of deep surrender, prayer and intentional energetic shifts. “Holding space” for transformation requires your own deep commitment to the inner journey of spirit and the compassion, courage, and a willingness to articulate the soul’s journey to others.
With Seane’s guidance, we’ll explore our own personal practice and connection to source and how to then invite Spirit into the body/mind experience, incorporate ritual, and how to speak authentically from your heart as a way to inspire, inform and motivate your class. This training will ultimately shed light on just how powerful and inspirational YOU can be and offer tools on how to share your unique self-expression with your students.
Over the course of five days we will explore:
• The basic mechanics of how to structure and organize a class responsibly and practically. Including alignment, adjustments and sequencing.
• Understanding the mind/connection, trauma and how to use the chakra system for insight, wisdom and healing.
• How to theme a class symbolically and emotionally, introduce current events, the power and challenges of offering prayer, intention setting and how to ritualize an embodied experience.
• Discover your strengths and challenges as a teacher and confront the limited beliefs that may be blocking you from your own unique self-expression and willingness to communicate fearlessly and authentically your true Self with others
• Learn how to read your students’ bodies and translate what you see into symbolic themes that encourage deep wisdom and insight into Self.
This is a 30 hour training for teachers and serious students wanting to deepen their practice. No prerequisites are required for this course but a solid understanding of sun salutations A & B is recommended. Each day there will be asana practice, discussion and workshop. This training counts towards meeting Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Requirements. At the end of this training you will receive five sequences to practice and teach as well as unique prayers written by Seane, that you are free to use and explore in your own teaching and practice.
