In our 200 hour programs, students begin developing their teaching voice on day one and continue to speak from the seat of the teacher everyday of the training. Alignment Principles and Philosophical Concepts are presented in clear, simple systematic lessons with demonstrations, anatomy models, visual aids, and practical exercises. All of this is done in an atmosphere of loving support and encouragement. The intelligent thoughtful organization of these trainings will prepare you to teach with confidence and joy.
Wisdom Flow Yoga offers a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified program which is appropriate for students who want to become entry-level teachers, students who just want to deepen their practice and teachers who want to learn the alignment principles of the Wisdom Flow Yoga style. Our trainings are condensed immersion experiences – 16 days of study, practice and teaching. Your final project is to teach a 1-hour class to the general public plus two free classes in your community once you return home. Alternative final assignments can be arranged for those taking the training for personal development only. There are prerequisite for this training that help assure a more level starting point for all students. Please be sure to read through the registration and information form thoroughly and feel free to call or email with any questions. 200-hour programs are offered on Maui in January, June and October each year.
Wisdom Flow Yoga also offers a 300-hour advanced training designed for teachers already certified at the 200-hour level. This course dives deeper into therapeutics, variations for students with limitation and variations for students who want to explore advanced asana. This training also moves through the yoga sutras to embrace and gel the philosophy of this illustrious lifestyle. Our first module for the 300-hour program runs 9 days – weekend to weekend. We choose this time frame to support working teachers who want to minimize their time away from work and/or family. This first module covers 120 hours of your 300-hour requirement. The remaining 180 hours will be completed remotely through 6 months of weekly Skype sessions, projects, assignments and finish with an oral exam. Wisdom Flow Yoga offers a 300-hour program in late February each year. Program completes in July of that same year.
Because Wisdom Flow Yoga is an evolved style of yoga that teaches therapeutic alignment principles, functional core strength, and intentional transitioning, it is essential that our students have some basics down before they arrive. We ask that students have at least three years of regular asana practice before joining our program. We ask that each students reads “How Yoga Works” by Gesha Michael Roche and we ask that each students reads the “Wisdom Flow Yoga Teacher Training Manual” by Jennifer Lynn before arriving. Both of these books are available on amazon.com. We also ask students to memorize and practice speaking the postures of Surya Namaskar A and B so they are well prepared to use their teaching voice at the beginning of the program. It is highly recommended that students who are new to Wisdom Flow Yoga, check out some the videos offered on this site, or join our online yoga membership site and become familiar with the style.
