Holistic Yoga Teacher Training - Internship and Practicum

Yoga is best learned under a guru or a mentor. The seeker of yoga has to consistently and persistently follow a mentor (or a set of mentors) and shadow their practice or teaching until one is soaked in their teaching styles. As a prospective yoga teacher, one needs to learn to observe techniques being taught, the response of the students, and the overall experience a given session has on the class. In this course, the students get practical hands-on training with mentors to be able to teach yoga to their own class. The students form a group under a mentor and teach classes while the mentor observes and provides comments and feedback. In addition, the students get actual field experience where they shadow a real class. Following this, students teach their community in a safe environment where the mentor would be able to guide the students through their 20 hours of field practice and practicum delivery.

Using the knowledge obtained through previous yoga studies courses, students will be able to implement their knowledge of yoga instruction in the field. Initially, students will shadow experienced yoga instructors as they teach various classes, such as dynamic, relaxing, loosening, and strengthening yoga sessions of varying lengths. Students will learn how to deliver a diverse set of yoga classes to a variety of audiences from different age groups. Upon shadowing instructors, students will teach yoga classes with a mentor, eventually teaching on their own under a mentor’s supervision. After receiving feedback from an experienced yoga teacher, students will implement the feedback and hone their teaching skills. At the end of the course, students will complete a written final examination and a practical exam where their teaching skills will be evaluated.
