SmartFLOW: Shoulder Girdle Module
Bondi Beach, NSW – 22 to 24 November 2019
Annie brings a wealth of knowledge and a depth of wisdom to her yoga practice and teaching, all learned over nearly 40 years. Not only has she done the inevitable self- study that a disciplined yoga practice cultivates; she has also developed her own SmartFLOW system drawing from all the lineages of yoga she has studied.
This short 20hr module is spread over 3 relaxed days and is open to all levels of students. While the content delivered is geared towards 200hr certified teachers, this weekend immersion will provide epic opportunities to develop your teaching skills or to simply deepen your own practice.
Register these hours on your 500hr pathway! Not only will you add 20 hours to your advanced yoga education certification with Yoga Alliance and/ or Yoga Australia but you will get to study under one of the most respected yoga teachers of our generation.
With a focus on the shoulder girdle for this 20hr Teacher Training weekend, work on a key area of the body in terms of modern lifestyle: screen time and stress/ tension. To experience true shoulder-opening, get ready to work on shoulder flexion, rotation and extensions, as well as the necessary core work to support it.
Annie Carpenter brings both passion and expertise from over 3 decades of Yoga practice and teaching. The weekend will be a mix of FUNctional anatomy, strong Asana relating to the area focus, Assessing and Hands-on-Assisting for essential poses, and Therapeutic practices.
The pathway includes an additional 300 hours of study on top of the 200-hour certification, taking you up to 500-hours accreditation
These modules are crafted by facilitators with years of experience in their specific areas of expertise.
A fun and fascinating forum where you learn the anatomical complexities of the body to powerfully shift the way you teach.
Open to 200hr qualified teachers and experienced intermediate students (by application only).
Known as a Teacher’s Teacher, Annie has created a well-respected system of Teaching Methodology, SmartFLOW Yoga. She has the ability to educate her students on a very subtle and discerning level, marrying precision with exploration and challenge with play. You will be tested to your edge, physically and mentally, laugh out loud, and settle into a compassionate and satisfying state of presence.
No, you can choose the courses that fit your life schedule, budget and specific interest. We present all of our advanced teacher training material in a modular format to make it easier for you to pick the best course and pathway for you!
All teacher trainees must complete all three courses modules outlined above. The program has been designed specifically to meet the Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia 200-hour teacher training requirements. Missing out on a course component or not completing it in time would mean you have not completed the required number of contact hours and areas of study and will not gain full 200-hour certification.
Having 500-hour certification shows potential employers that you take your education seriously! Studying on our 500-hour pathway will provide you with opportunities to deepen your study of yoga that a well-rounded teacher needs on their CV.
Yes! Many of our 500-hour level courses require 200-hour certification as a pre-requisite but we welcome students from any yoga education training program.
Occasionally we open some of these programs up to all students, depending on the content of the course. If the course has a 200-hour prerequisite, it will be clearly noted on the website and all marketing material. And only 200-hour qualified teachers are able to gain hours of accreditation for completing the course.
Our 500-hour pathway programs require a $1,000 deposit for any programs over $1,000. All remaining course fees must be paid six weeks before the start date of the program. We don’t offer payment plans for our 500-hour programs. All programs under $1,000 require payment in full at the time of registration.
“The practice of yoga works at a physical, mental and emotional level & may be rewarding and challenging. We invite you to take care and participate to a level that you feel most comfortable.”
