About this trip

ADVANCE YOUR PRACTICE. FIND YOUR PURPOSE. BUILD YOUR FOUNDATION

Take your practice to the next level and build your foundations as a yoga teacher. Join Jason Crandell and Laura Burkhart for this internationally-respected program in San Francisco!


Weekends in 2018: 9/14 – 9/17, 10/5 – 10/8, 10/19 – 10/22, 11/2 – 11/5, 11/16 – 11/19


What You Can Expect During This Training

This 200-hr teacher training is designed to provide you with the knowledge, technical understanding and confidence to begin teaching yoga. The training will also provide you with an intelligent, systematic approach to vinyasa yoga that will advance your practice and fill-in many of the gaps that regular drop-in classes create.   



This program consists of 5 weekends between Sep 14th and November 19th, 2018. Each morning is dedicated to your practice. We will begin with 15 minutes of seated meditation. The seated practice is followed by a complete, intelligently sequenced vinyasa practice that will allow you to experience your physical edge and grow as a practitioner. You’ll simultaneously deepen your practice by working on advanced postures and their modifications, and enhance your teaching by assisting and adjusting your peers. You’ll learn to work with your own body in a more skillful, effective and efficient way in order to build depth in your practice for years to come. 



Each afternoon is dedicated to becoming a knowledgeable, skillful and insightful teacher. You will work on every aspect of teaching, from learning greater depth in anatomy, injury prevention, and intelligent sequencing for each region of the body to using purposeful, impactful language when you provide instructions. You will also generate sequences and teach segments of classes to receive Jason and Laura’s direct feedback and guidance.

You will be part of a highly practical, supportive and professional environment.

When you leave this training, you will be prepared to teach a foundational class.

READING LIST


THE MANUAL

Finding Your Voice: Power + Precision + Mindfulness Teacher-Training Manual, Crandell (Please note, you will receive a digital copy of this manual shortly after you have registered for the training)

The Upanishads, Easwaran (required)

The Bhagavad-Gita, Easwaran (required)

How to Know God, Isherwood (required)


THE CONTEMPORARIES

Original Yoga: Rediscovering the Traditional Practices of Hatha Yoga (required)

The Heart of Yoga, Desikachar (required)

Buddha’s Brain, Hanson (suggested)

Vedanta: A Simple Introduction, Vrajaprana (suggested)

Full Catastrophe Living, Kabat-Zinn (suggested)


THE RESOURCES

About the Reading

The following texts will provide you with a nice, solid yoga library. I’ve divided the books into four categories: My updated and revised teacher-training manual (which you will receive in digital form after registering for the training); selected classical texts which provide the philosophical groundwork for the yoga tradition and more; contemporary books that provide modern insight for these philosophical and spiritual traditions; resources that are nice to have on hand. I’ve chosen these books because they represent a broad, balanced perspective on the roots of yoga and related systems of philosophical/spiritual inquiry.  Please note that there are countless translations and interpretations of the Upanishads, The Bhagavad-Gita, and The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The authors that I’ve suggested are my favorite. If you’re unable to acquire these authors, you’re more than welcome to pick up another author’s translation. 


This list of books may be overwhelming. But, remember, the majority of yoga texts are pithy. These are not epic tomes. They’re terse, to the point, and sometimes esoteric. As you look at my required reading, you’ll see that I don’t ask you to read the entire book. I ask you to read enough to get the essence of what’s being articulated so that we can dig into a fruitful discussion. It’s helpful to read pieces of these books from time to time over the course of one’s life. The amount of reading I’m requiring is modest. Of course, you can complete the book if you have time or after the program has finished.
