There are 6 experienced teachers on this course. Each instructor is an expert in their field and you will get a broad spectrum of styles and types of yoga on this training. Hot Yoga Academy believes yoga is for every body type and every person, you will learn how to teach to all these groups of people.
Every day during the training, you will start with a hot vinyasa asana practice with pranayama breathing for about 1.5 – 2 hours. This would also sometimes include meditation, after which you will have a very short break. From there, you will either go into alignment or theory (philosophy, chakras, Ayurveda, adjustments, anatomy, learning to sequence, etc.).
The first 2 weeks are more on theory and practicing different types of yoga-like yin and restorative. The final 2 weeks of the training are more on practice teaching where you learn how to sequence Vinyasa classes, practice teaching with blocks, straps, and blankets, learn how to adjust students, how to deal with injuries and variations of postures, as well as prenatal and acro yoga.
When time allows Heather also covers yoga for sports athletes and Lezanne and Morgan discuss Yoga as therapy when discussing health concerns. There are generally 6 teachers on each course with Lezanne and Heather providing a real yin and yang approach to teaching Yoga. Lezanne is often called Mother Earth, her knowledge in philosophy and biomechanics and pretty much any topic of yoga is astounding. While Heather provides the more practical, business side of teaching yoga as her background before yoga was in sales and marketing. Heather is also a yoga business coach so any questions regarding your future careers she will be happy to help in any way she can.
There are 2 tests. The first is a written theory test. The 2nd is a 60 – 75-minute test where you teach and create your own hot vinyasa sequence, adjusting students and using props. You will have an opportunity to practice teach your 60min sequence before the final exam.
After you complete this course you will feel confident to be able to teach your friends and family with ease.
