A 6-month Study Series for Yoga Teachers

Join us for a unique study series designed to deepen your personal understanding of yoga and refine your ability to articulate and convey these teachings with simplicity and precision to the classes and clients you later plan to work with. In this 6-month study series, we will meet monthly to de-code and look further into the key elements of I AM Yoga® to better understand their spiritual, practical and modern applications in our personal practice and eventually the classes we plan to lead.

Throughout, we will explore the teachings of Gurudev Shri Amritji, Swami Kripalu and select passages from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, The Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads as our road-map to enhance our understanding of yoga’s rich depths, history and continued relevance in our practice, lives and today’s modern world.
In this class, you have the option to attend for your personal study or choose an educational track with a certificate of distinguishment from the Amrit Yoga Institute upon completion.

The Educational Track consists of the following:
1. Complete all six study sessions
2. Submit a 2-page written essay following the completion of each session answering the questions: What does this practice mean to you? How would you convey these principles to your students or clients? What practices would you choose to guide them through a class?
3. At the end of the course, submit one 60-minute video-class using one of the six themes, drawing inspiration from the teaching outlines you prepared in your essays.

-An in-depth exploration into six key elements of I AM Yoga® for your personal enrichment
-Guidance on how to articulate these concepts simply and effectively to your yoga students
-Suggested techniques and sequences to design classes specifically targeted to each theme

-Explore the richness of yoga’s ancient depths and its modern applications through group study and personal practice
-Refine your understanding of the I AM Yoga® system and teach with greater confidence and precision
-Improve your classes with renewed inspiration and enhanced delivery for students of all levels
