200 Hour Immersion Programs
Do you want to spend time completely immersed in traditional yoga lifestyle, living your yoga? The SOYA teacher training immersion program is an opportunity for students to become firmly grounded in a daily practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation. The program begins by completing philosophy and anatomy studies at home prior to the retreat. Then all students gather to be immersed in the fullness of yoga.
Ongoing support is offered during home study through a facebook group, email and phone calls. The immersion retreat gives students a well-rounded training experience including philosophy, meditation, mantra, pranayama, anatomy, multiple asana styles and lesson plan creation as part of the comprehensive curriculum. Assignments completed at home are reviewed, discussed and put into practice. Daily practicums develop confidence and expertise in teaching skills, lesson plan design, and the ability to modify asanas for most people’s needs.
Registration is recommended at least two months prior to the retreat to allow ample time for the written assignments to be completed. Students should have at least one year of practice in yoga. Upon completion graduates are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT200® Registered Yoga Teacher.
