THE ART OF TEACHING YOGA
200 HOUR TEACHER TRAINING
with NICO LUCE, assisted by LIORA LILIENFELD
Nico offers students a 200-hour Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program certified by Yoga Alliance (RYS 200). This training is a complete and progressive learning experience that deepens students’ knowledge and builds a solid foundation for a working yoga teacher, in each of these fields of study:
Anatomy & Physiology
Asana & Sequencing
Pranayama & Meditation
History & Philosophy
Sanskrit Terminology & Mantra
Ethics and The Business of Yoga
With a scope both deep and wide, this training program fosters the growth of both the student and teacher in you through ample exploratory, integrated learning, and practice teaching.
In this training, you will learn to artfully create a sequence and teach asana skillfully. Nico's mission is to prepare you to develop safe and sensible yoga classes for all levels of studentship. You will learn to accurately observe students’ bodies, assist them into optimally aligned asana through the use of words, basic hands-on adjustments, modifications and the use of props. An introduction to functional anatomy and physiology will form the basis for the study of asana and sequencing.
Nico believes in a deeper understanding of yoga and how to teach asana comes from a consistent commitment to your personal practice, and your practice will become a well-spring of resources and inspiration for you as a teacher. As such, asana, bio-mechanics and sequencing are at the core of this training. With Asana Labs and Practice Teaching sessions every day, you will deepen your knowledge of the biomechanics of yoga and develop communication skills to transmit this knowledge to your own students.
