HUMBLE WARRIOR TEACHER TRAINING
29th October - 3rd December 2022
A BHAKTI FOCUSED YOGA TRAINING THAT GIVES YOU MORE THAN A CERTIFICATE
This is a rounded and complete training that will give you the tools to teach Yoga in the west. Its sole intention is to leave teachers with a solid framework they can use in classes to deliver a thorough and effective yoga experience. There is an emphasis on communicating the philosophy in practical ways. We believe that the knowledge and application of this knowledge will lead to Yoga.
There is a formatted framework for the Humble Warrior classes as well as other key elements integrated into the class to give the students the tools to practice yoga off the mat. The spiritual, physical and mental sides of yoga are all covered and developed as students progress and become more familiar with key yogic concepts.
Although the classes are often dynamic you will be totally free to play with the framework to deliver what you feel will be the most effective experience for your students in the class. The levels can easily be adapted to accommodate any class and the method can be taught as something very soft or something very strong, spiritually, mentally
You will learn about the core principles of the method and key ways in which you can teach them and have them implemented into the lives of your students. There will be daily asana practices, meditations and chanting as well as philosophy. Anatomy, assisting and harmonium modules will be delivered through our the course throughout the course.
You will leave the course with a set of tools to teach. You will have a framework to use to put them into practice as you head back out into the world.
The practices of Bhakti Yoga (our predominant yogic philosophy on this training) are very close to our hearts and HW want to spread the chanting of the sutras, lines from the Bhagavad Gita and the different names of love as far and as wide as possible. We shall be gifting each student on this training a harmonium so they can take what they have learnt back home and start spreading the word of love.
