RYT 500 CERTIFICATION
Advanced trainees learn how to employ therapeutic techniques to deepen the yoga practice without injury, “work smarter–not harder”. We study modern scientific advances in the study of structural tensegrity to examine joint alignment, myofascial engagement and its effect on postural mechanics. Basic knowledge of Samkhya Yoga and Ayurveda gives us a holistic view of disease prevention and proper lifestyle choices as well as a complete understand of subtle anatomy and its relationship to the cosmos. We learn how the mind influences the body structure through the study of the body srota system and to “body read” to identify myofascial imbalances.
During the RYT-300 program trainees can take It’s Yoga’s classes for free. We encourage teacher trainees to experience various teaching styles because today’s teacher must be versatile and ready to teach to the needs of her students, not be confined to just one style.
The Advanced Teacher Training Workbook covers all topics listed, while the Technique Manual discusses the postures of the Primary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, including benefits, contraindication,posture adaptations and modern biomechanics. Also, we will review Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, focusing on the third and fourth chapters. We round out our philosophy studies with discourses on the Bhagavad Gita. This study results in a well-rounded professional yoga expert, a full-spectrum yoga teacher, who is qualified to bring positive change into their students’ body, mind and spirit.
