Adaptive Yoga & Skillful ObservationAdaptive Yoga and Skillful Observation: Cultivating a Mindful Teaching Practice: 100 Hour Advanced Yoga Teacher Training

Join Lauri Bruce, E-RYT 500, Director of Evolve’s Inner Therapies Yoga Therapeutics program for Adaptive Yoga and Skillful Observation, a transformational 100-hour advanced yoga teacher training delineated from the teachings of Nosara Yoga Institute and The American Viniyoga association.

Guiding our students on the path to personal transformation is a richly rewarding practice. When we use the model of the Koshas, the layers of the body relating to the physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual, we can hone our skills of modification, observation and adaptation. This 100 hour module will allow you to experience a deepening sense of personal awareness through the use of chanting, pranayama and appropriate adaptation of asana. These lessons will then be applied to the group class experience as well as a private student.

Emphasis will be placed on observing without judgment, the use of language in combination with gentle touch for assistance and developing co and reflective listening skills.

Technically, we will focus on the mechanics of movement in postures and how they relate to and support postural alignment. A general study of anatomy will be woven into each practice allowing you, the teacher, to deepen your understanding of your students unique gifts and challenges.
