Next Level Learning
Spry Mind+Body's unique teacher training program is focused on in-depth learning, individualized coaching and personal growth. Our student teacher ratio is kept small so that we can provide each participant with concrete coaching and real time feedback.
Our program is based on a proven methodology developed at our sister studio, Savannah Power Yoga. In this program we will be offering content specific to teaching Spry Mind+Body classes, as well as some content that is applicable to both programs.
A Modular Approach
Our teacher training program is divided into two modules, designed for both new and existing yoga teachers. Yoga 101 focuses on the core curriculum required for all certified yoga teachers. Our Teacher Training module is both a leadership program and in depth training to be a inspiring and safe teacher. Students may enroll in the entire 200 hour program or take just one of the modules at a time.
Yoga 101 Module
Yoga 101 consists of the foundations of yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation, anatomy, history and philosophy. Students wishing to gain their 200 hour certification will take all of the Yoga 101 workshops in addition to the Teacher Training module.
We offer the Yoga 101 program over an extended period, meeting once a week, and then daily for a 1 week intensive period. See below for more details. Some workshops in this module are taught in conjunction with Savannah Power Yoga teacher training.
Teacher Training Module
The Teacher Training module focuses on the techniques for teaching an inspired and safe Chair and/or Mat based yoga class. This portion of the training is open to 200 hour program participants as well as already certified teachers wishing to advance their teaching skills, especially those interested in adding specialized skills in teaching yoga for healthy aging.
This module is taught over an extended period, meeting once a week. See below for more details on dates and content.
