200-HOUR YOGA TEACHER TRAINING - VIRTUAL
Inwards & Upwards
Welcome to Arrow Yoga's Virtual 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. We are proud and devoted practitioners of this ancient system and serve as stewards, transmitting the knowledge that has been passed on to us, with utmost reverence. Our interest in guiding a 200 hour is not just in providing the knowledge of yoga, but to give you access to it's lived experience. Through more than 16 + weeks, you will be in an immersive and rigorous study of yoga, to learn how to lead the more modern approach of the physical based practices, while steeping yourself into research of its historic origins. As we share our interpretations of yoga, we are also dedicated to honoring yoga's ancient practitioners, and the literature they left for us to reference.
This program isn't just about learning how to teach, but more so, learning how to practice. You will walk away learning how to facilitate a vinyasa & restorative physical yoga class, while also learning how to lead traditional techniques for pranayama, and meditation. Beyond teaching, we emphasize self study and practice as a guiding principle to our studentship and our personal growth. Join us if you are ready to steep yourself into an in depth study of your yoga, and you. Read below to learn if this program is right for you.
Throughout the course of this training you will learn the fundamentals of your asana practice, aim inwards through meditation and activate your authentic power through self study.Your training will be broken down into 8 modules (& intensive weekends), with each module inspired by one of the 7 chakras, plus an additional module focused on assimilating all of the knowledge learned and it’s application.
The chakra system is an ancient architectural blueprint for understanding the energetics of mind-body-spirit and will serve as a symbolic and organizational component to the design of our training. Each weekend will also correspond with each one of the 8 limbs of yoga as described in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
This 8 weekend program is a comprehensive approach to becoming a well informed student of yoga. We value presenting the course material of ancient yogic principles through our unique modern translation. You will not only learn the art and science of this practice from a historical context, but also be able to interpret it through a language that is relevant to your daily life and practice.
Educational workshops, conversation, and reading assignments will coincide with the implementation and application of what is studied through repetition of practice teaching. It is through the development of your own personal practice that you will begin to share yoga, as a teacher.
