Conducted By Karla A. Cain
Joined by Misty Soderholm,

Shannon Chada and Treya Jaholkowska

Yoga Alliance 200 Hour YTT
'Traditional Yoga Instructor' Certification Program
Various Weekends & nights during  JUNE 5 - AUG 28, 2022

Class Options: IN PERSON (Willowbrook, IL),

ONLINE (From Anywhere) OR HYBRID of Both!

ALL CLASSES ARE LIVE- ONLINE OPTION IS NOT A SERIES OF RECORDINGS

Many Online 200HR Yoga Certifications came out of the woodwork during the pandemic - but they may not serve you if you actually want to be hired to teach yoga. Studios, Gyms and Students themselves will not hire people who haven't had in-depth and in-person learning with an experienced teacher trainer. If you want to actually share this practice, you must consider a more established Teacher Training program.

Yoga is traditionally passed on from teacher to student via a relationship that customizes the experience for YOU and your life, so that becoming certified is not just a credential, but a life-altering experience.

There are many YTT programs out there. What is special for this one?  DEEP & TRADITIONAL UNDERSTANDING
Classes include practice of Āsana, Pranayama & Meditation, as well as coursework, but also offers understanding of the true & authentic practice of lineage of Tirumalai Krishnamacharya.

Many YTT Training programs offer just a scratch of the surface of the true Yoga practice by focusing only on physical postures, while missing any real focus on 7 other components of the 8-Fold Path – the most powerful pieces on the healing journey. I wish to offer and share understanding of tradition, history, integrity and cultural (and yes, the PHYSICAL) pieces of this life-altering knowledge.

BEYOND ĀSANA:
Deeper Discussion in Philosophy, Ancient Texts & Tradition
- History / Origins / Ṣatdarśana
- Immersion in the 8 Limbs of the Aṣtāṅga Path
- Contemplations of verses of Patanjali Yoga Sutras
- Essay on Sankya Philosophy
- "Book Reports" on Assigned Documentaries
- Intro to Hatha Pradpika / Bhagavad Gita
- Study of ŚuddiKriyas
- Introduction to Sanskrit

LEARN BOTH WESTERN & YOGIC ANATOMY
Anatomy, Physiology & Injury Prevention, Body Mechanics, Joint Stabilization, etc. – As well as the Subtle Energy body and healing modalities of Prāṇa, Ćakras, Nadīs, Marmas, Mantra & Mudra.

EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE
Student Excursion for practice / study at Divine Grace Yoga Ashram in Cottonwood, AZ
Meeting Swami Sankarananda,
Experiencing Yoga in its authentic form~

​BE READY TO TEACH VARIOUS STYLES:
Understand benefits & how to share Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Chair, Pregnancy & Yoga Nidrā. No other special weekend certification courses (or the added expense of those courses) in each style will be necessary. Many YTT programs only focus on Hatha & Vinyasa - but here you will be prepared to offer each style - All included in Asana Study and Delivery – Including Prana Flow, Benefits, Sequencing and Teaching Skills. This is a huge cost savings. For example, learning Yoga Nidrā alone during a weekend workshop studio offering normally costs $250-$350.

You will learn cueing and practice teach classes to your classmates to depart this course fully prepared to teach classes.

 

AYURVEDA & YOGA FOR DOṢA
-Introduction to Ayurvedic Medicine
- Understanding Doṣas
- The 6 Tastes / Food & Plants as Medicine
-The Yoga & Ayurveda Relationship
- Asana, Pranayama, Dhyana for Vata, Pitta & Kapha
- The movement of 5 Parana Vayus within Āsana

 

​HOW TO START YOUR PRACTICE
Normally only offered in 300HR Programs~ Karla's  former career was in business development. She will guide you in understanding Code of Ethics, Scope of Practice, Legal Documents necessary for State or County, Waivers & Disclaimer Language, Music Suggestions as well as Copyright adherence, and much more- Learn your practice options available as an employee or independent practitioner, tax rules, payment gateways and the best ways to share your offerings both in-person or online. This detailed information is not offered within any other 200HR program.

The aim & goal is setting forth Yoga Instructors with sincere quality & depth of understanding in both personal and public practice, and who are empowered with tradition - as well as knowledge, on how to offer and share yoga as a lifestyle, not just a ‘class’. Yoga is not something we ‘do’, but what we ‘realize’. Offering Guidance & Instruction in this sacred practice goes beyond “HOW”….but also “WHY”.

As Yoga Teachers, or those who share Yoga knowledge, we must strive to protect and share the true and traditional practice, maintaining the integrity and sacredness gifted to humanity through the elevated consciousness of the great Sages & Seers of India.  We have a responsibility and duty of care when embracing this knowledge for ourselves and when sharing this gift with our community.

 

The Sattvic Sage Ayurveda & Yoga 200 Hour Program is for those whom wish to learn to teach, for those who are already registered Yoga Teachers who wish to deepen their understanding of traditional Yoga Principles and practical skills, or for those who wish to  personally explore their understanding and practice of Yoga for a healthy and balanced life.

 

This course allows each individual to experience the true essence and meaning of Yoga through a unique and holistic synthesis, harmonized amongst the teachings of ageless wisdom of ancient scriptures and philosophy applied in a contemporary context that students can grasp and thus begin to put into practice in their daily lives. Yoga is not something we ‘Do’, but something we ‘Realize’.

This is a path of Self-Discovery and Self-Realization.

 

Students will learn the integral foundations of Yoga ensure all participants can practice safely, teach safely, understand the breath and the mind and learn to connect to other human beings compassionately. This experience is a wonderful odyssey on your path to greater self-awareness and understanding. By incorporating Yoga in its totality, all will learn to teach and practice through their own experiences and deepened knowledge.

 

The course is designed to provide a comprehensive foundation for teaching yoga skillfully & intelligently, while realizing the connection of Āsana to Nirodha (mental Control) and Prāna.  This course intends to possess more depth and breadth of the true Yoga teachings, understanding the Śhiva / Śhakīi Principle, with a deep connection to heart.

 

Graduates of this program can become Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs) with Yoga Alliance when they apply for registration with Yoga Alliance. An RYT designation is a symbol of a minimum level of knowledge, training, and experience. Possessing this designation enhances your credibility as a teacher - but many components of this course offer higher-than-required knowledge for Yoga Alliance registration.  (Currently Pending YA Registration)

 

The Sattvic Sage Ayurveda & Yoga program also incorporates added ability to understand Ayurvedic Medicine and its critical relationship to Yoga. Yoga & Ayurveda are inseparable. Ayurveda itself is a form of Yoga.

 

In addition, you will learn the benefits and teaching of various styles of Asana (Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Chair),  Meditation (also Yoga Nidrā), Pranyama, Chanting of Mantras and the use of Mudras. No other special  certifications in each style will be necessary (nor the expense of such courses). You will be prepared to offer your light and energy in each of these spaces, with the goal of sharing your knowledge for health & healing of yourself and your community.
