Yoga Teacher Training Fall Intake 2020

COURSE STARTS ON 14TH OCTOBER!

The world is facing global revolutions. Are you ready for your inner evolution? 

The vision of Urban OM’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training is to offer an opportunity for human transformation and empowerment. With observing, assisting, and teaching, this education provides extensive skills and practical experience to safely, effectively and respectfully share yoga. Throughout the 9 months together, you will dive deep into the powerful tools of yoga, meditation, pranayama, mantra, philosophy, anatomy and physiology in a variety of settings. Even still, this training is more than sharing yoga as a teacher or learning the practice as a student. This is your chance to shake up and wake up. This training will propel you up towards your Highest Self as you find your authentic voice.

At Urban OM we are here as your guides to help you BE MORE, as you listen to and trust your intuition. Our team has been assembled with care, invited to not only share their individual wisdoms and expertise but to also hold an open, receptive space for your own journey. 

Regardless of how long you’ve been practicing or if you intend on teaching upon graduation, we ask for YOU to : 

  • Come wide awake
  • Move beyond your comfort zone with inspiration, challenge and support 
  • Shift your perception through embodied experience
  • Bravely follow your hunger and curiosity into your personal truth
  • Join the global movement of human transformation and empowerment

 

The seeds have been planted. We’re here to help water and nourish them. Wouldn’t you like to see what flowers blossom, what the fruits bare? Start here.

It’s simple. You are ready if you have a regular yoga practice (home or studio), you love yoga and you wish to dedicate more time to deepen your knowledge and experience of yoga. It is not about level, it’s about passion. This is a transformative journey – it’s natural that one part of you might feel ready and another voice might say something different. Yoga is a mystical path, the reason you are on this journey will make more sense as you continue along the road!

In having the training every week at the same time, same place, a routine can more easily be established within your daily life.
Additionally, with this being spread out over time you have the possibility to apply the learnings directly into your lifestyle.. Even more, with Urban OM being in your own city, you are more able to continue your transformational journey beyond graduation – by attending classes, events, courses and continued educations; by maintaining a relationship with your fellow students, mentors and teachers; and by having a deeply rooted connection to the sacred space that carried you through your experiences and knowledge… This training and Urban OM can become a part of your daily life, rather a separate experience.

This is a hatha yoga teacher training where the asana and pranayama are coming mainly from the Krishnamacharya lineage and philosophy mainly from Swami Dayananda’s commentary on the Vedas. Our faculty are highly skilled yoga practitioners and trainers with roots in Ashtanga and Iyengar style yoga.

The training is scheduled around the school vacation times, allowing for time with the family. This means that training dates are not scheduled during school holidays.

Many students begin their yoga teacher training journey simply to deepen their personal practice. On average, approximately 70% of the students begin to understand their bodies and yoga’s benefits in a more experiential or intellectual way, and 30% want to become teachers; by graduation, the numbers have switched! During the training you will attend the Business of Yoga sessions which cover possible professional avenues to pursue after the training eg. live steam teaching, setting up your own business, offering workshops & retreats, teaching classes at studios, corporate yoga, giving 1:1s, continued & advanced yoga training e.g. yoga therapy education.

The training follows a set curriculum and whilst we encourage you to find your own way, we will guide you to extract common and core teaching gems to give you the tools, skills and resources to shine. Every teacher brings their own voice, perspective and expertise into their sessions. As a faculty we are committed to broadening your knowledge of yoga, and we encourage you to find what resonates most for you by sharing what resonates with us.

As they say, you get out what you put in. But roughly speaking, 1-2 hours per week should be dedicated to embodying your practices and learnings, by working with assigned challenges, reflections, suggested reading and karma yoga. Think of it this way: simply exchange 1 movie or a few episodes of Netflix for your yoga evolution! Memorization of text or sequences is not required or even encouraged – explore finding your own authentic voice!

In digestible blocks the training covers traditional yoga techniques and methodology including and not limited to Asana, Pranayama, mantra and meditation. Philosophy and how it relates to teaching yoga and daily life. Anatomy and physiology with relationship to asana and stress management. Leadership and personal development, The business of yoga. What it means to be a teacher, voice, class management, sequencing and much more. The training is set up in a way to encourage you finding your way to share the tools of yoga.

It is our goal that by the end of the training you will be able to confidently teach a safe, anatomically informed class with variations to support students.
