UNIQUE REASONS TO TRAIN AT DC YOGA:
- DCYOGA offers an opportunity to work with teachers of different lineages of yoga, giving trainees the opportunity to try many styles of yoga and choose which one resonates the best with them.
- Trainees will be able to observe, participate, and assist in classes taught outside the studio, providing the opportunity to see how classes vary according to individual and group needs, work with those who are not yet fit, flexible or committed to yoga---an in- valuable opportunity!
- Learn ways to find classes and opportunities to teach.
- Benefit from teachers
who have had many years of personal practice of yoga and teaching.
- The main style taught for our teacher's training program is the basic series of the Sivananda lineage, encompassing pranayama, including kapalabati and anuloma viloma, surya namaskar and 12 additional basic yoga asanas to include forward bends, backbends, standing postures, balance postures, and spinal twists. After each asana, there is a return to savasana to allow the body to receive the benefits of the practice. There is a 10 to 15 minute guided relaxation/meditation at the end of the session. The style progresses to intermediate and advanced asanas, other forms of pranayama, and meditation.
