200-Hour Shanti Yoga & Wellness Teacher Training
This 200-hour Yoga Alliance approved program will deepen your practice and understanding of yoga while preparing you to teach a variety of styles of yoga classes. Shanti Yoga & Wellness's training puts an emphasis on the therapeutic aspects of yoga and learning to teach each body type and a variety of body challenges. Not only will you learn asanas (poses) intimately, but also learn the muscles used to perform them, the chakras the asana stimulates and the overall benefits of yoga to your body, mind and soul. We will explore meditation, the yoga sutras (philosophy of yoga) and pranayama (yogic breathing). Shanti Baby's unique aspect of training will cover teaching students with special needs, like pregnancy, injuries, children, seniors and more. You will learn how to sequence and structure a class, make the most of your teching space, modify poses and adjust students as well as manage the business aspects of yoga.
