Indigo Yoga Teacher Training | With Dr. Zohra Campbell
Info Night | July 10th, 6-7:30p (At Indigo Yoga Studio)
The Indigo Yoga Teacher training is an alignment and anatomy based 200 hour hatha yoga training taught by a chiropractor-yogi and senior yoga teachers. Our guiding principle at Indigo is that yoga offers ‘every-body’ tools for well-being and for navigating life.
We place a strong emphasis on teaching how to build a safe and creative sequence that meets students at their starting point. We instruct on how to prepare the body for deeper and more advanced postures.
A yoga practice should always be adapted to the individual needs of the student. We encourage our trainees to see their students as individuals who arrive with various goals, levels of fitness, and life-experiences, and part of our inquiry will include postural assessment and discussions of how to help people with injuries, or with special needs such as seniors, trauma sensitive and prenatal clients.
We believe that yoga is a life-long journey of self-discovery and service. We place a high value on the wisdom and teachings of yogic philosophy to encourage our students to learn more about themselves and to find out who they truly are under all life’s layers.
Each of us has a special gift to share and this training emphasizes the individuality that is part of the human experience. Whether you are wanting to become a yoga teacher, or you are on a lifelong quest for self-knowledge, our goal is to bring an awareness of the transformational power of yoga through breath, asana, and commitment to practice.
You will come away from our 200hr Yoga Teacher Training Program as a Yoga Alliance certified instructor and also as a stronger, wiser, freer and more aware version of your true self.
“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.” – T.K.V. Desikachar
Teaching yoga is a path of self-discovery, shared inspiration and dedication. We want to share this live changing experience with you. As our program is instructed by a Chiropractor/500 E-RYT, we have a very unique a powerful perspective to share. The knowledge modern science has taught about movement meets the deep understandings of yoga philosophy.
In this program, we want you to know more that what a pose should look like. We help you learn and analyze the differences between each student that walks through the door. Everyone has a unique anatomical structure and knowing how to help each person work with their own bodies is a crucial portion of being the teacher guiding the students through a yoga flow. But this program doesn’t just stop at extensive anatomy education. Yoga is more than just the asana (yoga pose) practice. Yoga has eight more limbs to be discovered and our enthusiastic instructors find so much joy in sharing what is beyond that. From breathing exercises to yogic philosophy, our training will answer your questions and get you started on a deeper journey of understanding the chatter of the mind and how we can calm them to find the beautiful cadence of peace within ourselves.
