200 Hour YA Registered School
Vidya: “the pursuit of knowledge or truth”
Vinyasa: “the synchronicity of breath and movement”
Vidya Vinyasa Yoga is the practice of moving the body in conjunction with the breath, so that every asana, as well as every step, is a conscious and joyful awareness of our life force and all it is intended to be. Such intention makes every moment an opportunity to practice Yoga. Our goal is for students to experience the connection of the mind, body, and breath in a practice that brings each of us closer to knowing our true “Self” both on and off the mat.
We see Vidya as the “pursuit of mindfulness and clarity, a practice we will culture in every aspect of this training.”
Teacher Training runs in 8 weekend modules, Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, September through April (with a May snow date). We will study classic asanas (postures) and appropriate sequencing for both vigorous and gentle Vinyasa flow yoga, learn a Restorative yoga sequence as well as Yin postures, Raja Yoga (study & philosophy, primarily with Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras), Pranayama, Meditation, Anatomy (structural and subtle), and so much more!
We also offer a “Deepen Your Practice” option to the YTT. Please Inquire!
Students in this program meet for 3- 4 of the 8 YTT weekends, participate in our in-depth study of yoga philosophy, pranayama, meditation practice, subtle body, and more! Cost of this program is $1,500, plus texts. Ask us about this option if you are ready to take the next step into your practice. Students in this option have the choice to join the YTT after the 2nd month if inspired to do so.
