What Will You Learn?

ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY – ASANA – BREATHWORK – MEDITATION – MANTRA – ASSISTING AND ADJUSTMENT – TRUE ALIGNMENT – ENERGETIC ANATOMY – BEING OF SERVICE – YOGA PHILOSOPHY – YOGA AS BUSINESS – ETHICS AND LIFESTYLE – PRINCIPLES OF TEACHING – MINDFULNESS

Anatomy and Physiology

In the modern world yoga is fundamentally a movement practice, making a functional knowledge of the body essential for any yoga teacher. Together we will explore the anatomy and physiology of the human body, whilst at the same time, bringing this information to life and reawakening movement potentials through the application of kinesiology.

We believe that behind our physical bodies, we are energetic beings, and any ailment we experience always has a root in our more subtle bodies. Using yogic teachings on the chakras, Nadis, and the five bodies, we will learn about the energetic currents that run behind our human experience.

Training, Teaching and Practice

Be prepared to deepen your yoga practice. We will practice asana (the physical yoga postures) daily, and dissect each pose to ensure it is performed safely and correctly. We will also practice pranayama (breathwork), meditation, chanting and mantra as part of the training.

You will learn how to effectively teach a yoga sequence, in accordance to our 10 principles of teaching (people not poses). The alignment of the body, inclusive language, and understanding the energy of the room will guide how you learn to design your classes.

Philosophy, Lifestyle, and Ethics

Through in-depth analysis of some of the key philosophical texts behind the practice of yoga, such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, we will learn how to integrate these ancient concepts into our daily lives – in our roles as yoga teachers and beyond. We will also tackle some of the main ethical issues in the yoga world today, and create a new way of being of service as future teachers and leaders in the yoga industry.

At the end of the programme you will:

Have the confidence to teach a yoga class

Understand the history of yoga and have an introduction to the ancient texts and philosophy behind the practice

Be able to stand in your true alignment and support a safe asana practice

Have the ability to apply the philosophy of yoga to modern day teaching

Have a better understanding of yourself, your yoga practice, and your vision for how you’d like to show up as a teacher

Obtain an understanding of anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology

Rachael Haylock Rachael first encountered yoga when she was 15 years old and since then she has been in a state of enamored curiosity with the practice in all its forms. Her training in ballet and contemporary dance has given her a deep understanding of the human body, including the areas of anatomy, kinesiology, and functional movement, which she feels complements her yoga practice perfectly. She guides her classes from the perspectives of safety, alignment, and mobility, with a strong focus on expression and the healing modalities of movement. She views yoga as a deeply uren spiritual practice, saturated with ancient philosophy, and feels blessed to be able to share this with others. She has completed more than 500 hours of training through Yoga Alliance programs in Chicago, India, Guatemala as well as extra training in Yoga Therapy in the UK, Guatemala, and Hawaii.

200-Hour Teacher Training at Earth Lodge

Want to become a yoga teacher but don’t have the time to commit to a month long intensive training? Earth Lodge is proud to host a 6 month, immersive 200-hour yoga teacher training, facilitated by members of the Antigua Yoga Community. Our training is more than taking classes and training sessions, it is learning to be of service and taking steps on your own healing journey in order to serve others. We are committed to offering you a platform for your growth in teaching, knowledge, and leadership.

Our Design:

Participants will meet for one full weekend every month from May-November 2020 (exact dates below). Topics covered will include Yoga philosophy and lifestyle, teacher ethics and codes of conduct, practice teaching, sequencing, study of ancient scripture, anatomy, kinesiology, and personal transformation.

We have designed this training to be as inclusive as possible. The six month layout gives those whose lives do not allow the time or space for an immersive one-month training to still get their 200 hour certification in a professional setting. Each weekend we will submerse ourselves in one or two areas of study, giving participants the chance to discuss, learn, and move through subject material on a profound level. We believe this immersive approach to learning such dense and detailed material allows for more focus on similar themes, more mental space to reflect, discuss, and digest the information we are learning. Designing the training this way allows for full integration of yoga as a holistic, healing system, into the daily lives of the students. ***

Lauren McKiddy

Yoga & meditation have brought Lauren a world beyond what she expected when she first stepped on the mat.

Her first yoga experience was at age 14, during a challenging time in her youth at a treatment center. 10 years later, she returned to the mat for good and hasn’t looked back since.

Her most desired and emphasized message in her classes is to encourage practitioners to stir and invite the experience of embodiment, by drawing attention to their breath and bodily sensations that arise throughout their practice, in order to deepen the connection with the self.

Movement practice has truly been an empowering tool and a healing journey for Lauren.

She feels privileged and grateful to share these teachings with others.
