Core Program: 130hrs (100 contact hours)
This module introduces you to the foundations of Power Living’s teaching methodology and includes:
To graduate from the 200hr program you will be required to complete an essay on specific course content, a practical and a written assessment.
One-week off-site retreat: 65hrs contact hours
The most powerful component of the program, this week long retreat will challenge your mind, body and spirit – facilitating the awakening required to become a truly powerful teacher.
The core of Power Living’s methodology lies in the practice of Svadyaya (self-study). This module is dedicated to uncovering deeply engrained beliefs, patterns and character traits that hold us back from living authentic and courageous lives. This work requires honesty, humility and a great commitment to your own spiritual growth.
Daily schedule includes meditation, yoga practice (Vinyasa and Yin), practice teaching, anatomy review, group sessions to uncover limiting core beliefs and inspiring community activities.
This week will leave you feeling strong, inspired and with a renewed passion for your life and practice.
20 contact hours
Module three is dedicated to the art of assisting in the classroom and ties together all elements of the training to re ne presence and skills. Focused on impacting our students through the power of touch and connection, this module trains you to have a precise awareness of students’ unique bodies and how to safely guide them into deeper experiences on their mats.
The areas of study include:
Upon successful completion of the full course, you will receive a 200hr accreditation from Yoga Alliance (USA). This will allow you to apply to be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) through Yoga Alliance (USA) and obtain Provisional Membership with the Yoga Teachers Association of Australia (YTAA). Following registration with either body you will be able to obtain insurance covering you for yoga teaching.
