The World Yoga Center Advanced Trainings

WYC's Continuing Education Program presents a 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training designed to support our teachers' development as teachers and as transmitters of Yoga with the required course work needed for registration at the 500 RYT level. These 300 hours of continued training will be used to explore the breadth and depth of specific areas of teaching, engage trainees more deeply in the practices of Yoga, and refine and hone their teaching skills. The varied expertise of our WYC faculty will be a rich resource for trainees in their continued learning. These 20-45 hour modules, spaced over two years, are available in succession and can be taken individually. Teachers not seeking 500 RYT status and practitioners who are not active teachers are also invited to participate and enjoy the benefits of focused study, and will be welcome in most (if not all) of these advanced TT modules by discretion of the trainers.

 The Art of Class Planning with Jackie, Julia & Rudrani

32 hrs:Every great yoga class brings students to their great Self. It holds inspiration, energy transmission and a focused intention. The structure that supports this unfolding is an art that we constantly develop and refine as yoga teachers. This module takes an in-depth look at all that goes into crafting a well thought out and yet spontaneous yoga class. We will clarify and make accessible the different components of class planning, including authentic and straightforward themes that arise from our own inner frontiers of learning, how to use the UPAs to unleash each asana's depth of power and ease, and effective, creative sequences.

The Power of Revelation: Meditation Teacher Training with Rudrani

36 hrs: Many of us have been deeply served by the practices of meditation and self inquiry along with our asana practice. Meditation and self inquiry reduce the grip that long-standing thought patterns have had on our behavior and our speaking. Meditation aligns us with the supreme intelligence of the Universe and its underlying presence within us. It is the driving force of spiritual life and the source of inspiration on the path of Yoga. In its cosmic form, Meditation is the revelatory force in our nature and holds all the powers of Yoga within it. It allows asana, pranayama, mantra, chanting, and service to arise naturally from within. Meditation and our power of self inquiry create the journey of awakenment. Offering these practices to others accelerates that awakenment  within us and challenges us on a deeper level. We find ourselves able to be a well wisher to many and this increases the pace of our own Sadhana. 

The Power of Revelation Part 1 includes acquiring core skills you need to mentor students and more effectively transmit the practices. Some of our study will include Pratipaksha Bhavana, (the pause that refreshes), how we invite others to awaken (throwing  the gauntlet) and true discipleship (living to serve).      

Sessions will include various meditation practices, creative use of the meditation template, teaching practice and practice articulating the teachings. Self inquiry, reading from Tantric texts, generating the space of silence with students, are some of the arenas of study we will weave into our gatherings.

Anatomy Applied to Asana with Julia

32 hrs: This course is about conscious movement and an appreciation of the supreme intelligence underlying the human body. Anatomy and Kinesiology is a vibrant conversation. Revealing the differences between how we tend to think about our bodies and how we are actually fashioned is a worthy exploration. We will use focused awareness and subtle refinements in alignment to bring us into expansive movement. Asanas challenge and encourage us to become present to the deep flows of the creative power that generates the body and guides us to our own source.

Through this training we will better serve each body individually as well as honor all that goes into each asana. Each weekend, the relationships between the bones, joints and muscles will be discussed by region and then embodied through asana-based movement explorations. Open to yoga teachers as well as yoga and movement enthusiasts.

Julia has studied anatomy, kinesiology and physiology in depth for 10 years, studying not only with anatomists, but manual herapists, movement specialists and with the human form itself- having spent over 50 hours in dissection labs. Her cultivated, integrated focus on movement, form and the principles of Anusara yoga have helped her to build a strong private practice. She supports students in the exploration of their optimal range, to uncover the strength and potential of deep alignment no matter their range of movement. She strongly believes that a working awareness of the relationships within the physical body is an invaluable branch of study for yoga teachers and practitioners.

Anusara Yoga's Therapeutic Elements with Jackie & Julia

45 hrs: This training is a comprehensive study of how to use the ‘Universal Principles of Alignment’ of Anusara Yoga to invite easefulness and the optimal flow of Prana to support the bodies ability to heal itself on every level. Learning how to use hands on adjustments for oneself and in assisting others transforms our awareness through touch.

It is created for teachers but open to dedicated students, and it will open the door to the real possibility of your yoga practice's innate ability to heal what is out of balance.

This four weekend training offers overarching concepts of Anusara Yoga Therapeutics, providing the practical information needed to navigate and effectively support our own therapeutic needs as well as those of our students. Throughout the course we address how to safely manage a wide array of injuries during an asana practice as well as how to use the tools of our practice to support a growing awareness and integration around the space of an injury.

We will take an in-depth look into the bio-mechanics of anatomy and kinesiology, inquire into the complexity of human physiology, and learn to identify and to feel our way through habituated impasses and tendencies to overwork, brought to light through the asana practice.

Since Jackie had a serious bike accident in September of 2016, she has learned a new level of skills in dealing with people going through major physical and psychic trauma. Along with her 20 years as a massage therapist and yoga teacher, she will be sharing her insights on recovering from major surgery/trauma and pain and how to support our loved ones and students through this phase of their healing.

Julia brings her many years of intensive study of the human body, anatomy, physiology and kinesiology to the program along with her passion to share this information in a very practical and accessible way. She currently works therapeutically with 8-10 students a week and brings her insights of the wide variety of support yoga teachers can offer those who seek to use Yoga as their method of healing.
