The Subtle® Yoga Training and Personal Transformation Program is a unique opportunity for sustained immersion in the ancient art-science of yoga which will lead you to a deeper awareness of yourself and your world. You will gain the ability to teach safe, effective yoga classes which offer students the experience of the tremendously expansive power of yoga.
Whether you are an experienced or aspiring yoga teacher, a health professional, therapist or educator looking to integrate yoga into your work, or simply looking for a framework for personal growth, the Subtle® Yoga approach to training will provide you with a unique structure in which to experience the vast benefits of yoga.
Yoga is for everyone and anyone can benefit from it. You do not need to be an athlete or a dancer to do, teach or enjoy yoga. Yoga is a complete human potential technology integrating yoga postures and meditation with lifestyle suggestions and practices for emotional healing and spiritual expansion. Because it is a preventative practice which integrates spirituality and health, yoga has become widely practiced and utilized – the need for qualified instructors is expanding rapidly.
In the diverse field of yoga training and education, Subtle® Yoga is situated between less accessible but important systems such as Viniyoga, and human service programs that have been identified as needing enhancement through more holistic approaches.
The Subtle® Yoga system is distinguished by:
- A unique conceptual framework
- Explicit values and principles
- A community development approach
- A public health orientation
- An on-going reference to research and new knowledge development
- A continuous Quality Improvement process
Traditionally, revered yoga instructors were those who taught by example – their lives were an embodiment of the principles of yoga – wisdom, clarity, intuition, serenity, courage and a commitment to service. They often worked individually with students. They came from all walks of life and careers. The Subtle® Yoga Training and Personal Transformation Program offers you the opportunity to become this kind of teacher, formally or informally – to exemplify and to learn to share yoga with others from the deepest part of your being. The program will help you balance knowing and being, balance external and internal learning, and develop an explicit understanding of a learning process which you can use for the rest of your life.
The world needs yoga teachers who possess a deep self-knowledge and radiate a commitment to service. During this program you will unveil the depths of your spirit in order to authentically hold and transmit this ancient wisdom tradition.
REGISTRATION WITH YOGA ALLIANCE
This program fulfills the Yoga Alliance standards for becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) at the 200 hour level. This is the basic level of training required by Yoga Alliance and garners an RYT200 qualification. Many employers are now requiring yoga instructors to meet this standard.
This program is incredibly beneficial and I feel I can flourish with its knowledge. I now have a comprehensive understanding of both the subtle and physical ways that yoga therapy works holistically. I am deeply grateful.
I loved all the different aspects of yoga that were covered. I felt that this program really went in depth in areas that were not covered in my basic trainings – specifically the chakra weekend, the philosophy and theories, ayurveda, special conditions and mental health – I loved all the information on addiction, mental health and public health.
I believe I received excellent training in a variety of topics from experienced teachers. This training gave me a great start in several unfamiliar topics, specific techniques to use to deepen my teaching… beautiful job selecting teachers and materials, and facilitating growth among and within participants. Thank you so much!
