FOUNDATIONAL TEACHER TRAINING (100 HOUR MODULE)
This foundational training taught by Nicki Doane will introduce the key concepts of Maya Yoga and is applied towards a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification. One of the most important ingredients in being a great yoga teacher is having a personal yoga practice which in Sanskrit is called “sadhana”. In this training we will begin to explore “svadhyaya”- the study of the self, what that entails and how to develop a personal practice. As yoga is not only a physical practice, some yoga philosophy and psychology will be introduced to help bridge the connection between the body and the mind. Maya yoga is about honoring and serving individual students and helping mentor teachers that are deeply interested in helping people through the art and science of yoga.
Some topics covered in this training include: Asanas ( postures), Pranayama ( breathing techniques), Bandhas( subtle body energy tools), Seeing and Understanding Bodies, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, Anatomy, Modifications of poses, Chanting, Sequencing, and Meditation.
