THE ART OF TEACHING YOGA

200-hour Teacher Training with Nico Luce

We0September 2021-March 2022 at Yoga Moves Nyon

We offer 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 student’s knowledge and builds a solid foundation for a working yoga teacher, in each of these fields of study:

  • Anatomy & physiology
  • Asana & sequencing
  • Teaching methodology
  • Pranayama & meditation
  • Energetics
  • History & philosophy
  • Sanskrit terminology & mantra
  • Ethics and the business of yoga

With a scope both deep and wide, this program fosters the growth of both the student and teacher through ample exploratory, integrated learning, and practice teaching.

Our mission is to prepare students to develop safe and sensible yoga classes for all levels of studentship. In this training, you will learn to artfully create a sequence and teach asana skillfully, 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 in-depth study of functional anatomy and physiology will form the basis for understanding how to instruct each asana and create a sound sequence.

We believe 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, biomechanics and sequencing are at the core of this training. With Asana Labs and Practice Teaching sessions on a regular basis, you will deepen your knowledge of the biomechanics of yoga and develop communication skills to transmit this knowledge to your own students.
