Soul School At Home: Teacher Training Program Online Info Session
Please RSVP to the Info Session here to receive the Zoom link.
We are excited to announce that Soul School, our annual Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training Program, will for the first time launch as an online experience beginning this Fall!
We have re-imagined Soul School, now entering it’s 11th year, to better fit this COVID era utilizing the technology that can connect us together from the comfort and safety of our homes. Yoga is meant to be a holistic practice that is richly integrated into our home and lifestyle. One of the silver linings of today’s challenging circumstances is the opportunity to dig deeper into our practice, to support our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical well being so that we can be of even greater service to others.
On Monday August 10th, 6-7:30pm CST we’ll be hosting a Soul School Info Session on Zoom where you’ll have the opportunity to meet Seán and Mitchel, learn more about the program, hear from Soul School alumni about their experience in the program, and ask any questions. The purpose of this session is to give you the opportunity to learn more about Soul School and tune into whether it feels like the right fit for you. You’re invited! Please RSVP to this info session by registering for it here and we’ll email you the link so you can join.
Soul School is a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary teacher training program facilitated by Seán Johnson, founder of Wild Lotus Yoga and Mitchel Bleier, founder of The Yoga Teacher’s Lab that offers depth, fun, community, and an opportunity to transform your life through committed practice in yoga and teaching. The program is designed for dedicated yoga students who wish to enhance their connection to yoga and spirituality, aspiring yoga teachers, as well as current teachers who are seeking to bring more depth to their practice and teaching through continued study.
Soul School creates an opportunity for trainees to deepen their spiritual path through self-exploration and build a strong foundation for teaching yoga in a soulful, imaginative, and integrative way. We will explore the connections between yoga, art, mythology, poetry, music, and philosophy with a strong emphasis on Bhakti, Tantra, and Vinyasa yoga. The first half of the training is called “Ignite Your Soul” and includes spiritual practice, self-exploration, meditation; pranayama; mantra and chanting; exploration of yoga & social justice; harmonium; play; dance; mythology; poetry; yoga’s history including Veda, Buddhism, Bhakti, and Tantra; anatomy and kinesiology; and study in the alignment and forms of over 60 asanas. The second half of the training is called “Share Your Passion” and includes practice and study in: Teaching Skills, Art of Teaching, Language, Constructing and Sequencing Classes, Adjustments, Sanskrit for Yoga Teachers, and more.
We will also have content dedicated to giving you tips and advice on teaching yoga online in the Covid era (and beyond), and the experience of this online training will be a great training ground for you in teaching online classes.
Graduates who fulfill all requirements of the program will receive a certificate and be eligible to register at the 200 hour level as a yoga teacher with The Yoga Alliance, the national education and support organization for yoga in the United States.
