200 Hour Immersion Programs
The SOYA teacher training immersion programs are for students who have at least one year of yoga practice and are looking for an opportunity to spend time completely immersed in traditional yoga lifestyle, living their yoga! The program begins with studies at home at least two months prior to the retreat, and then all students gather for an Immersion retreat of yoga sadhana to complete the training.
Ongoing support is offered during home study through a facebook group, email and phone calls. The intensive retreat gives students a well-rounded training experience including philosophy, meditation, mantra, pranayama, anatomy and multiple asana styles as part of the comprehensive curriculum. Lessons 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 time for the written assignments to be completed. Upon completion graduates are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as an RYT200® Registered Yoga Teacher.
