200Hr Summer Intensive Yoga Teacher Training with Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee
Yoga Shanti’s 200-hour teacher training is an opportunity to open a doorway into self-awareness of body, mind and spirit. This training will include 6 weeks of direct study with Colleen and Rodney in a convenient online format. This program is designed to immerse you in the study of yoga, enriching and strengthening your personal practice, and preparing you to teach a set of safe Shanti-style sequences.
The curriculum will include cultivating a daily home practice of asana, pranayama and meditation with a focus on alignment, flow and inquiry of the subtle. You will develop teaching skills including sequencing, seeing and understanding bodies, and manual adjusting. Your study will also include anatomy, philosophy and the practice of anti-racism and inclusion. Plenty of individual attention and mentorship will be available for each student. This training has the potential to transform your life, and we hope that you will join us on this ever-unfolding journey.
The training consists of 4 week-long immersions. The format is one week of study followed by one week off (see exact dates below). During the “off” weeks, the group meets for compulsory one-hour mentorship meetings on Tuesdays. Students are required to attend all training sessions live for a minimum of 80% real-time participation. The entire program will also be recorded and available for on-demand replay so that students can bring themselves up to speed if there is an occasional scheduling conflict. These replays are also an invaluable resource for students during the entire program, allowing for the review of content during home-study.
