The 200-hour Maha Shakti Teacher Training Program immerses you in the Maha Shakti Flow practice of yoga. Along with focusing on proper alignment of asanas, and anatomy and physiology as they relate to yoga, you’ll delve into discussion on the elements and chakras, as well as the history, philosophy and ethics of yoga with teachings of the Vedas, Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and Patanjali's
Unlike other teacher training programs, you'll apply what you learn right away. With over 20 hours of classroom practice you’ll have plenty of opportunities to lead fellow students through sun salutations, standing poses and fluid sequences. You will learn how to design classes for the beginner as well as the seasoned practitioner, introducing multiple modifications and intensifications as needed by students with the ability to break each pose down from simplest to most challenging. You’ll even learn how to put your class to music and design a creative playlist which will inspire your students.
WHAT IS MAHA SHAKTI FLOW?
Maha Shakti Flow or “boundless energy” is the result of merging multiple styles of yoga. Influenced by premier yogis like Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste, Sri Dharma Mittra and Ana Forrest, this creative, contemporary style of yoga encourages students to explore the physical and emotional sensations of a pose while moving through it fluidly—allowing freedom to reside in a pose versus stasis. Although holding postures is part of the practice, it is not the primary focus. Exploring the mat globally instead of strictly from the front, allows the mind to let go of the analytical and tap into the abstract.
“I came to teacher training wanting to simply learn more about yoga and enhance my practice with really no intention of teaching. However, after the first weekend of the training with Adri and Amy I caught the teaching bug! They supplied us with so many tools and skills that I am excited to share what I have learned with others. They helped me find my voice. Both are loving, patient and excellent examples of what yoga teacher and trainer should be. The program is organized and enriching. They love teaching and through their passion, the other students in the training now love it too! I would recommend their program to anyone who is interested in learning to teach or simply wants to deepen their practice. I truly believe it is the best teacher training around!”
