RYT200 YOGA TEACHER TRAINING SYLLABUS
A study of traditional and modern yogic principles exploring the facets of a wide range of yoga postures and class plan development. Emphasis on therapeutic effects of yoga for new, aging or injured students through application of postures to enhance fascial mobility and bio-mechanical patterning.

OBJECTIVES OF A BALANCED YOGA PRACTICE
Awareness  Breath practice and meditation to still the mind, connect mind-body and observe limitations & resistance - as a foundation of yoga practice.
Flexibility  Build on awareness by opening and stretching key areas of the body.
Balance  Explore and tune the body-mind’s natural wisdom, core and balance.
Strength  Develop and hone mental and physical strength without injury.
Endurance  Deepen exploration of yoga practice and asanas, for fullest expression.
Integration Close with practices to blend the physiological, mental and spiritual changes cultivated  – for an integrative, transformational experience.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES IN RYT200 TRAINING
Techniques Training/Practice
Includes asanas, pranayamas, mudras, meditation and other traditional yoga techniques including: 1) analytical training in how to teach and practice the techniques and 2) guided practice of the techniques.

Guiding and Teaching Methodology
Demonstration, observation, assisting and correcting, instruction, personal wisdom teaching, template creation.

Anatomy & Physiology
Biomechanics & Myofascial Release
Physical anatomy and physiology with study of the subject and application of principles to yoga practice - including preparatory poses, correct posture, spinal integrity, contraindications, development, expression, fascia mobility, bio-mechanical (re)patterning - and exploration of dysfunction or limitation.

Yoga Philosophy, Ethics, and Lifestyle
Study of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika and Yoga Sutras to learn Yoga philosophies, yoga lifestyle and precepts.  Ethics for yoga teachers relating to teacher-student relationships, teaching yoga as a service and being beneficial to individuals through yoga.

Aging Population Dynamics
The demographic of older students is the single largest segment of the population possessing time, money and direction from medical professionals to practice!  It represents a large potential audience for Yoga classes, private instruction and training. The special needs of this population will be studied including tailoring class plans for degenerative connective tissue, injury and inflexibility.

YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
LOGISTICS
The curriculum is delivered in 9 immersive weekend retreat sessions. You will need to be onsite all day promptly at 7:45 am to 6:00 pm - each day. We recommend out of town students arrive in town Friday night, departing Monday morning as we will not start late nor end early. The immersive format includes regular breaks, but meals will be taken together on-site in study group. Reading and homework will require 10-15 hours per month between sessions.

HOW WE TEACH
Our philosophy is rooted in true ancient principles detailed in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. We study direct ancient teachings of traditional yoga asanas, pranayama, chakras, bandhas, nāḍīs and mudrās. We believe the modern purpose of yoga is re-establishment and refinement of integrated physical, mental and spiritual well-being - at any age and experience level. From these foundations we train aspiring teachers to develop their inner guidance, body wisdom, asana fluency and understanding of the bio-mechanics of yoga poses, adapting them to a broad audience for wellness benefits. We practice kindness and respect toward students, we discourage a dogmatic or competitive attitude regarding achievement or ability. Students will not feel awkward if they are not acrobatic. Newcomers are heartily welcome. Students need not be young, athletic or flexible to learn and teach yoga. Our philosophy is that aspiring teaching students need technical knowledge, support, supervised practice, confidence and a sense of care for their future students.
STUDY OF PHYSIOLOGY & YOGA STYLES FROM THE LINEAGE of KRISHNAMACHARYA
Our Yoga Alliance credentialed "RYT200 Fascia Stretch track" provides trainees with an underlying framework for creative class plans to develop awareness, flexibility, balance, strength, endurance and integration - with an emphasis on the physiological aspects of fascial release and bio-mechanical patterning.
 
Our program offers well-rounded lesson plans of ancient, transitional and modern philosophies, drawing on the Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika and teachings of: Krishnamacharya (our root guru), David Williams and Swenson (Ashtanga), Sadie Nardini (Core Strength Vinyasa), Orthopedist Ray Long MD (Iyengar-styled Bandha Yoga), Baron Baptiste (Power Yoga), Shiva Rea (Prana Flow) and Dr. Kirstie Segarra (Myofacial Yoga).

The school's Founder and E-RYT 200 instructor has 40 years of yoga study, practice and teaching experience. Her lineage is through her root teacher, David Williams, who received his instruction from Pattabhi Jois, who received his from Krishnamacharya, "the father of modern yoga". Each student who graduates our RYT200 Teacher Training program will join this yogic lineage.

TECHNICAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT
This training will prepare students with in depth knowledge to teach yoga postures, skills to develop class plans and application of the principles of physiology emphasizing fascial release and bio-mechanical patterning benefits afforded uniquely through yoga postures and sequences.

The curriculum was created in response to a need for yoga education to cut through a myriad of profit-making motives and pop-yoga and cultish teachings . The curriculum is unique for 4 features.

  • Application of bio-mechanical patterning & myofascial release techniques
  • Traditional yogic teachings from an authentic, respected yogic lineage
  • Skills to create custom, innovative, safe lesson plans
  • Professional job placement

Our teachings move away from the style of repetitive weight bearing sun salutations, deep back bends and weight bearing poses on any part of the spine such as head or neck - which have been known to harm students, even experienced practitioners.  

Instead we explore the entire body of Hatha Yoga postures - from the 15 first described in the Hatha Yoga Pradipika 500 years ago - to a full menu of 100-400 current inventive postures, all explored and broken down with an emphasis on therapeutic benefits and development of of a healthy lifestyle.
Emphasis is placed on understanding each pose category: forward bends, backbends, inversions, twists, balance and supine - with spinal integrity, core engagement, anatomic confirmation and graduated expression. Preparatory poses, risks, alignment and cues, agonist/antagonist muscles, fascia mobility, bio-mechanical (re)patterning, variations, modifications, therapeutic benefits, props, assists, transitions to other postures and counter postures -- will be identified for each pose.

WHAT IS FASCIA? HOW DOES IT RELATE TO YOGA?
Myofascial Yoga techniques guide Fascial Stretch in yoga postures and practices to  engage and establish improved patterning along myofascial meridians. Fascia (elastic connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body including muscle) and can become restricted due to injury, disease, overuse, trauma, infectious agents, inactivity. These conditions may result in pain, muscle tension, diminished blood flow and reduced ability to heal. Myofascial release and Fascia Stretch Yoga improves the whole body experience, deepens yoga practice and stimulates healing.
