YogaWorks Teacher Training
YogaWorks offers a cohesive, multi-specialist approach to teacher training that blends the best of the yoga tradition from the East and the West. Our faculty is comprised of highly-trained, experienced, inspiring professionals with a profound understanding of yoga’s transformative power.
At the cornerstone of our teaching philosophy is the idea that the concepts of yoga must be first understood through the body and the dynamic, conscious practice of asana. The YogaWorks method is a blending of the three strands of the Krishnamacharya lineage-Ashtanga, B.K.S. Iyengar, and the teachings of Desikachar coupled with the unique approach to sequencing that is specifically designed to meet the needs of the average yoga student. From Ashtanga the YogaWorks method incorporates flow, from Iyengar precise detailed instructions and from the teachings of Desikachar, posture modifications and the idea that the practice should fit the practitioner. Our programs emphasize on student’s personal practice as the source for their creative teaching, and include a comprehensive study of the techniques and mechanics of fundamental yoga postures, as well as the tools necessary to teach and inspire others. To deepen their education students also, study functional anatomy and physiology, explore yoga’s philosophical underpinnings, practice meditation and pranayama, and investigate the ancient science of Ayurveda.
YogaWorks’ suite of programs includes the 200-hour Teacher Training, a foundational teacher training program for serious students and aspiring teachers, and the additional 300-hour Professional Program, a secondary teacher training program for developing teachers.
