Yoga Tune Up® Level 1 Teacher Training – Irvine, CA 1/27 – 2/4

Are you ready to take your teaching to the next level?

Join Maura Barclay at Equinox Fitness in Irvine, CA for a Yoga Tune Up® level 1 teacher training January 27th – February 4th!

Maura Barclay has the trainees de-construct Warrior II using directions of movement

This training will change the way you teach and the way you look at the bodies that show up to your class. With yoga being a healing practice, it is our responsibility as the teacher to “do no harm. Yoga Tune Up® breaks down the nuts and bolts of human movement by using a yogic lens of awareness, conscious relaxation, and proper breathing techniques. This new lens of awareness sets you apart from the average 200 hour graduate. During the 70 hour training you will dive deeply into integrated anatomy and body mechanics while discovering a fresh approach to Asana. Go beyond formulaic instruction and truly learn how to think and teach creatively within your classroom.

This increase of knowledge on how the body works and how to properly modify benefits your students in a way that no longer leaves them feeling excluded due to physical limitations. If yoga truly is for every body, it kinda helps if you know a thing or two about well…bodies! No more “just skip this pose” learn a step-by-step guide to creating memorable, accessible, and effective Yoga Tune Up® classes and “Think out of the Boxana”.

Watching a video of Gil Hedley speaking about fascia - can you tell we are fascinated!

I can personally say that my Level 1 training has helped my confidence as a teacher, it has also helped with my credibility with students. When you make a living instructing people on how to move their bodies, the last thing you want to do is give a blank stare when they ask you a question after class! The impact you have on a practitioner by staying with them a few minutes after class to discuss the pain in their iliotibial band (commonly known as IT Band) is huge. Showing your students how to do a proper chaturanga and saving their shoulders is priceless and they will be more than happy to spread the word about how YOU helped them to live better in their body. You are now stepping beyond the role of yoga teacher to educator.

Successful completion and certification of the Level 1 training is mandatory prior to teaching any Yoga Tune Up® classes. Level 1 is required for YTU Integrated Certificate and for Yoga Tune Up® Therapist consideration.
