Continuing yoga study beyond your 200hr is a fantastic choice, committing to a 300hr is even better. I’m so happy you’re here.
Although we explore ideas from many schools of yoga, this 300hr is based on the principles of Yoga Synergy. If you completed your 200hr with me in the past, expect significant shifts. If we haven’t studied together yet, there’s a good chance the ideas presented will challenge you, as they are a substantial departure from mainstream yoga.
THIS IS AN ADVANCE TRAINING
that starts from the foundations
The advanced practices of yoga are not so complicated. To perform advanced poses, transitions and sequences, we simply apply the correct foundational ideas in the right order at the right time. We gain and build the complexity of an advanced practice through gaining a more accurate understanding of the fundamentals.
The process is to redefine and re-evaluate our foundations – we’ll look at everything from philosophy and teaching skills to anatomy and physiology. We will go back to the foundations of breath, posture and movement, and cultivate a razor-sharp understanding.
Second, we research and discuss the how and why of yoga. I’ll avoid offering rules or solutions without giving a good reason. Our credibility as yoga teachers depends on this.
Thirdly, we need to progress our communication skills. A good teacher is someone who conveys meaningful information to their students at the right time and in the right way. Being a yoga teacher is challenging, as the skills required to teach a class, lead a lecture, run a workshop or teach online are entirely different.
Throughout the course we will work to develop these skills separately, preparing you to teach in several scenarios with ease.
Lastly, in the industry section of this course I’ll give you an insider’s view to help your business thrive, and avoid common mistakes. We’ll go into detail by making case studies of strategies that have worked well, and contrast with some that haven’t.
what we teach
Yoga Synergy is modern yoga with a classical and anatomical twist. It’s less about crazy sequences and more about smart actions, intelligent movements and avoiding unnecessary physical stress. You could think of it as a more refined version of modern Vinyasa. The movements are more specific, the poses more purposeful, and the teaching style more intentional. There is a deep consideration given to the structure and alignment of each shape.
