Welcome to the next rendition of Advanced Yoga Training. Year One was an incredible starting point. We saw how valuable and necessary it is for teacher's to join together and learn in a safe and nourishing environment. What happened when all these amazing souls blended was alchemy. We at Advanced Yoga Training learned a lot by listening to the group and the needs, and what we took away has informed and develop Year Two — what we feel is a more complete curriculum that offers a starting point for anyone, as well as, a way for a current teacher who's ready to learn more and reignite some passion.
We've got a totally revamped and expanded 200-Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga Training for the weekenders this fall through spring. We've also got another 200-Hour Training taking place in the summer of 2019 that includes some rockstar yogis.
We've also added some incredible options that can take this 200-Hour and make it a 300-Hour, or even 500-Hour training, which include Summer 2019 trainings with us and some of the most celebrated yoga teachers in the world. Plus a "Post-Graduate" chance to hone in and develop your skills while learning more. All this is one year!
We know what it takes to train teachers. We've been doing it for over 15 years. This is our dream training, to create a curriculum like a school that allows you to grow at your pace and from your place. Welcome to The Training and get ready 'cause School's In!
A revamped, updated, & upgraded
Yoga Teacher Training
revamped, updated, & upgraded
Begins October 2018
This one-of-a-kind 200-Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga Teacher Training co-facilitated by Mitchel Bleier, Tracy Bleier, Jessica Carlin + more offers you community, depth, fun and inspiration to provide the opportunity to transform your life through yoga’s practices and teaching. This training weaves the sciences, arts, and spiritualities of yoga to tell yoga’s story as a physical, mental, soulful, and spiritual body through poses, breathing, meditation, poetry, myths, story-telling, philosophy, and a main emphasis of learning in a safe and nourishing environment that supports your nervous system to feel at home in your self. You can add other available trainings to make a 300 or 500 Hour Yoga Certified Training within the year.
This training is perfect for:
students curious to go deeper into their yoga practice
students who are ready and want to teach yoga
yoga teachers who are teaching and want to bring more depth and understanding into their practice and teaching with more studies.
This is a non-dogmatic, non-system training that loosely uses "vinyasa" (consciously placing yourself) as its base. The training focus on safely creating perspectives, changes, and challenges to allow a lifelong relationship with yoga — your yoga, which is what you find in the training. As well as very applicable and skillful ways to communicate, lead, and teach classes. A sampling of what you receive through the 200 hours is spiritual practice, self-exploration, meditation; pranayama; mantra and chanting; harmonium; play; dance; mythology; poetry; yoga’s history: Veda, Buddhism, Bhakti, and Tantra; anatomy and kinesiology; and study in the alignment and forms of over 60 asanas; Teaching Skills, Art of Teaching, Language, Constructing and Sequencing Classes, Sanskrit for Yoga Teachers, and more.
Mitchel and Tracy have been co-facilitating (or co-learning as they say) teacher trainings for almost two decades. Together they have trained 1000's of teachers who teach all over the world. Their trainings are in-depth, fun, and definitely work to develop yoga teachers. They bring together an expertise in so many subjects of yoga including: asana, meditation, breathing, Indian myths and philosophy, Sanskrit, multiple perspectives on the human body, chanting, writing, qualities of a teacher, and more that creates a fullness of teachings and perspectives rarely available in one training. As constant students of yoga, arts, sciences, and life, Mitchel and Tracy have revamped and upgraded this 200-hour teacher training by adding to it the maturity that has come from teaching for over twenty years while respecting lineage and tradition with growth and transformation.
What students have to say:
It is amazing to grow alongside Tracy and Mitchel through their Advanced Yoga Teacher Training. Their ability to hold the wisdom and history of yoga and simultaneously provide space to play and wonder at our wild humanness and our unique gifts is what makes this teacher training truly advanced. The weekends are more than just how-to's of pretzel poses and Jedi mind tricks, though there are those, too... Tracy and Mitchel host a vast and intelligent community who gather to inspire, to practice, to learn and to grow. I brush against my own limitations and growing edges within each weekend, and am grateful for the opportunity to practice all the limbs of yoga on and off the mat. It is helpful to watch myself dance within the flow of the training's structure which includes song, movement, breath, poetry, art, nature, science, community, inquiry, sharing, collaborating and more. Thank you to Tracy and Mitchel and the AYTT community. Jai!
