What does it take to teach a class of utmost healing value? Learn how to sequence your class physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually to bring your student into the ultimate state of alignment, on multiple levels. So many Yoga teachers have no idea what it means to be a good “mover.” In this training we will explore neuroscience and spiritual energy. You will be given tools to deliver a class that brings it all together. How to Be A Profound Teacher helps Yoga teachers deliver, not only education, but a true, healing experience.

Your emotional state and how you show up matters.  Rather than searching outside of yourself, this module will help you gain a greater understanding of how your own energetic body has been supporting your path towards self-discovery all along.  Your Chakras are your own powerful energetic resources that support your personal growth as you enhance your emotional well being.  Your aligned state will help you connect with your students in a way that helps them feel seen and supported as they too explore more of themselves.  Your teaching will evolve passed the physical movement of yoga and help your students connect with their souls.  Bring a journal and pen, an open heart, an open mind, and your willingness to dive in.  A more aligned, expansive version of you awaits!

This module uses advanced anatomy and alignment knowledge to level up the practice of yoga using props and manual assists.  Beginners think of props and assists as a crutch.  Advance your teaching by using these tools to teach proper alignment and deepen proprioception. The more aligned the body is during asana practice the more challenging the practice.  Learn to power up your class by deepening your nowledge of each pose.

One of the true cores of teaching yoga comes fromt he knowledge gained by study of the Yoga Sutras.  As our understanding as teachers goes beyond the asana, we increase our ability to truly help people.  The Study of the sutras will help you incorporate other techniques into your teaching including mediation, pranayama and intentional self study.  You will cultivate a deeper and more personal relationship wiht the practice of yoga that you can then share with your students.

After the age of 30, the human body stops naturally developing muscle, and body tissues become less pliable. One might think strengthening is the key component to maximize function but it is actually mobility. Mobility creates access within the body and without it, one may feel stuck and will be prone to injury. This unit is designed to delve deeper into advanced anatomy and physiology for the established yoga teacher. Through integrated lecture, hands on, and yoga practice, we will review major body systems, common injuries, and proper modifications for injury/injury prevention for a safe yet powerful LivFree®️ yoga practice. Participants will need to bring a notebook, pen, and be prepared to practice yoga.

LivFree® Chair Warriors Certification is a training that will provide you with all the tools you need to bring our style of yoga to people with dynamic needs.  We often get stuck in “How is this possible” and the reality is it's an absolute gift to spread yoga to everyone.  Teaching yoga from a chair is another prop that we will learn how to master and give us an access point to bring it to everyBODY.  We will uncover movement and break through limitations by exploring all the possibilities our bodies hold.  It is a calling to bring yoga to people and it doesn’t matter the age or skill set of our students.  If you have this passion or feel drawn to work with dynamic people, if you are open minded, and have a willingness to learn - this is for you!

LivFree® Yoga for Athletes November 13-14, 2021

image96

We have all seen athletes who have the almost super-human ability to push their bodies to the edge and reach peak physical performance, but the term, ‘athletes’ is broad, covering anyone from high school students to recreational golfers to professional soccer players and the reality is each athlete is different and each sport played will have a different effect on the body.

Approaching yoga with athletes means learning to incorporate your own decision-making into all aspects of the yoga.  In the Yoga as a Sport – Training for Athletes course, we learn how the creative sequences, timing, breath and focus must be organized for a specific purpose (injury prevention, recovery, flexibility, stamina, mental game, etc.) and as part of a broader training regimen.  Here, you will hone teacher skills that will enable you to push athletes to new levels – not by harnessing power or pace – but by teaching that with repetition and patience, every athlete can uncover new abilities and skills they never thought possible and never knew they always needed to remain at the top of their game.
