YOGA TEACHER Course Overview
Karma Teacher’s revolutionary 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training is designed to strip down the barriers you have spent a lifetime building. We use intense asana, experiential philosophy and powerful emotional exercises to train you to truly become a teacher of yoga; not just a teacher of postures. Choosing to join the Karma Teachers Yoga Teacher Training in Vancouver means choosing to become part of a Vancouver Yoga family; a family that goes far beyond the short 200 hours of the training. We offer continuing education, in-studio teaching opportunities and amazing support. We understand that the training is just the beginning of your journey; a journey that we are here to support no matter where it takes you.
This is truly so much more than yoga teacher training. It is life training, warrior training; a training of transformation. It affords you the space to rediscover the beauty and love that define who you really are: strong, beautiful, powerful, and a unique manifestation of the source of all things. Through this experience, you will learn to become a skilled and empowered yoga teacher.
Students can expect to learn the history of yoga, an in-depth understanding of yogic teachings, as well as a thorough grounding in the physical practices of yoga. We also explore the use of meditation, mantra and pranayama in your personal practice, as well as in your practice teaching. This training is inspired by the Karma Yoga lineage of transcending one’s actions and is dedicated to the transformational power of selfless service. These life-changing teachings will alter the way you experience and teach asana, anatomy, alignment and sequencing, and will prepare you to be a powerful teacher, ready to serve and empower others.
