Long Island Yoga School 200 Hour Yoga Certification Program200 Hour Teacher Training Certification Program:

Our upcoming 200 Hour Teacher Training Certification Program -

Jan 18 - June 15 2014 

Location: Bonda Yoga in Great Neck

Our 200 Hour Teacher Training Certification Program is designed as a ‘mentor-ship’ more than just another ‘teacher training’.

What exactly does this mean?

Long Island Yoga School is an Accredited Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School .We follow all Yoga Alliance standards of teaching. Throughout our curriculum, we ensure that our students get a quality education, always providing a safe, supportive environment for your learning experience. We pay attention to detail, quality, and spend more individual time to mentor each student. At Long Island Yoga School we keep your individual goals in mind and work with you to achieve them.

If you love yoga and are passionate about sharing it with others, we want you! This is what is important to us. Students do not have to have a fancy yoga practice and be able to do every advanced yoga posture to enroll in our program. A basic understanding of asana, a willingness to learn and work hard, is what we look for in our trainees.

What makes us different?

  • No 6 week intensives: Our 200 hour programs run for 7 months for the full curriculum and from 1-2 years for the module program. Plus we offer continuing education and support through one on one counseling, mentorships and Advanced Training Programs.
  • Solid Working Foundation – We  offer you clear guidelines for sequencing and cueing with an easy to follow format that gives new teachers the ability to write and memorize their sequences quickly with the ability to teach an energetically balanced, fun and educational class.
  • We teach our trainees to ‘teach’ not just call out poses.
  • Quality Well-Organized Program – We provide you with a solid foundation to build upon. Some trainings offer quite a bit of variety of yoga styles and subjects that can not be covered properly in a 200 hour training. Rather than confusion, we offer you workable knowledge and show you how to utilize it in class themes, meditation classes and workshops.
  • Rise Above The Competition! – Our graduates go on to work in successful studios all through-out Nassau and Suffolk county as well as open their own studios in areas such as Kings Park, Bayville and Long Beach. In addition, during auditions for potential jobs, graduates from Long Island Yoga School beat out the competition every time. If you would be interested in speaking with a past graduate please contact us  to hear how different and beneficial this training is.

Our program consists of:

Asana Labs – We break down each posture for a solid understanding of alignment in your body. This enhances your own practice while sharpening your eye to see misalignment in your students.

Energetic Sequencing Method – We will cover the energetic components of asana and how to sequence according to that energy. Students will learn how to sequence safe, fun, energetically balanced and educational classes quickly and easily.

Clear Cues – Say what you mean! Learn the proper way to phrase your cues so your students will have an easier time following and hearing them. With our method of delivering cues, a student with their eyes closed will be able to follow with ease!

Philosophy – We will cover two of the classical yoga texts - the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita. The focus will be on  The Eight Limbs of Yoga, The Four Paths of Yoga, the Gunas and the Koshas. In addition we cover the Chakras, Nadis and Subtle Bodies in depth along with the concept of the Yin/Yang philosophy all of which is the heart of the Prana Shakti Flow Philosophy.

Meditation – Students will learn effective ways to lead a meditation to various levels of practitioners and know how to make students’ feel comfortable being where they are and get what they need. We help you to develop a meditation practice of your own.

Business of Yoga – We discuss how to succeed in the competitive world of teaching yoga – what materials are needed, where to get jobs, how to create jobs, and how to shine and rise above the competition. In addition, we show you how to utilize the internet and social media for the best results to advertise and keep yourself organized with no to minimal cost.
