Training Details

All modules can be taken in person at CommuniTea Yoga Studio, Oceanside, California, OR virtually online in the comfort of your own home.
Each morning is dedicated to your practice. We will begin with 15–30 minutes of seated meditation that will allow you to settle into your practice and bear witness to whatever is present for you.
 
The meditation practice is followed by a strong, intelligently sequenced practice that will allow you to experience your physical edge and grow as a practitioner.
In the Vinyasa module, we’ll use this morning practice time to deepen your understanding of Hatha postures, vinyasa flows, and modifications. You’ll learn to work with your own body more skillfully and efficiently, which will serve you in your practice for years to come. In the Kundalini Module the focus of the morning practice shifts to kriyas, pranayama, and Kundinyasana.
The afternoon is dedicated to becoming more knowledgeable and insightful. You will work on every aspect of yoga, from teaching segments of a class to creating class themes. We cover injury prevention, intelligent sequencing and how to use purposeful, impactful language when you provide instructions. During training, you will have the opportunity to enhance your teaching by assisting and adjusting your peers if you are taking the course in person.
 
In the Yoga Lifestyle module, you’ll benefit from the combined experience of your trainers as you learn how to build a yoga business that works for YOU – whether it’s opening a studio, teaching corporate clients or traveling the world sharing yoga!
