The Diamond Heart Yoga School Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training introduces you to the multifaceted world of yoga principles and practice. This training is specifically designed to help curious, passionate students strengthen their practice, and to safely teach yoga to others. Teacher trainees will embark on a once-in-a lifetime journey into an ancient practice that requires an exploration of how yoga works on mental, emotional, physical and energetic planes within the body.
You will explore the ancient lineage teachings of Tibetan Heart Yoga of the subtle body practices, including the three major channels (the two side channels & the central channel), the five major winds and their influence on the body.
During the training you will learn very specific series from the Tibetan Heart Yoga tradition and how you can connect this asana practice with its philosophy. There is no other yoga teacher training that offers Tibetan Heart Yoga.
Compared to many other trainings, the Diamond Heart Yoga School has a large focus on teaching practice, therefore the students start teaching every day after the first few days of training. By the end of the training, teachers will be able to conﬁdently teach a 60 - 90-minute beginning /intermediate yoga class including yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, and philosophy.
You will learn the keys to a yogic lifestyle through the teachings of the Yoga Sutras as well as traditional Tibetan Buddhism, and how to embody and embrace this wisdom to share it with your students.
This training emphasizes the core tenets of a yoga teacher training, plus many added surprises based on my background and more than 20 years of teaching. You will learn about anatomical structure and postural movement; individual postures and their Sanskrit names; alignment and adjustments; injury assessment; meditation; breathing practices; sequencing and class structure; nutrition and lifestyle habits; and ethics and business principles to understand how teachers can be a source of inspiration to others in their communities.
As a Licensed Acupuncturist, I will also be teaching from my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, including anatomical structure as well as health beneﬁts of acupuncture and herbs. The emphasis and detailed explanations on functional anatomy will improve your practice, teaching and understanding of yoga tremendously.
