The Art of Teaching Kula Style Yoga 2020
The world is in a pandemic, and the yoga world too is turned upside down. What yoga teaching will look like in 2021 and beyond is anyone’s guess. But we will always need great teachers (perhaps now more than ever)!And if you’ve practiced with a variety of Kula trained teachers, you know we make some of the finest.
So despite these crazy times, we will continue to offer the famous (some might say infamous) Kula 75 Hour Advanced Teacher Training—in a more flexible fashion. Hybrid style in Topanga CA for those comfortable being with other humans for 5 days or entirely online for those that aren’t. It is my fervent hope that this is the only year that this training will be offered virtually, so if you find the idea of participating from the relative comfort of your own home—now is the time to jump. (Limited to 8-10 in person and 8-10 virtual teachers).
Who this training is for:
This intimate teaching retreat is for experienced teachers who want to better understand how to teach Kula Flow style yoga. You must have already completed a 200 or 500 hour TT and have at least 6 months of consistent teaching experience.
Recent graduates of 200 hour TT programs without teaching experience or students wishing to “deepen their practice.”
What this training is NOT:
A comprehensive TT which will require you to memorize every bone in your foot or the etymology of the word sthira. Not will it delve deeply into the rich world of yogic history and philosophy. (There are wonderful training programs that will do just this—and we’re happy to point you in the right direction…)
What this training WILL do:
Help you to apply what you already know (as a teacher and student) in order to lead intelligent, inspiring Kula style vinyasa classes. Expect to teach and practice will your fellow trainees a lot.
AUGMENT your understanding of creative, intelligent sequencing, as well as your ability to communicate physical and philosophical instruction clearly. There will be a strong emphasis on anatomical intelligence from a hands on perspective.
DEVELOP your authentic teaching voice. This includes becoming aware of the teachers who speak through you as well as the vocal habits (good and bad!) you have picked up from them. You will honestly investigate your teaching habits: physical presence in the room, hands, pace, etc.
You will be expected to prepare for the training with assigned readings, attain a basic grasp of key anatomical roadmaps, acquaint yourself with the Primary Series (if you are not already), and attend and write critiques of ten Kula classes.
