Welcome to Level II of the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training
PART I OF HOLISTIC YOGA COACHING/ YOGA THERAPY CERTIFICATION
(The yoga therapy components of our courses are based on other standards, not derived from our status as an RYS with Yoga Alliance registry. We support IAYT’s educational standards for yoga therapy and intend to apply for IAYT accreditation following implementation of the new process.)
Upon graduation from a level one yoga teacher training most people find themselves ready to dive into the pool of classic yoga a bit deeper. After all, you were just introduced to a massive system of integrative health, well-being, and philosophy that tends to blow the mind, body, and heart wide open and ready for more. Enjoy the menu of courses. It includes opportunities to learn specialized skills that can be incorporated into your current classes and programs while also opening new doors to a greater number of students to serve from a wide variety of ages, stages, goals, and abilities.
Indulge yourself in new and emerging styles of this classic system that allow you to approach your growing profession as a blossoming art.
At this stage, Yoga becomes just that, a holistic and healing art, and you as the developing artist may choose what you wish to explore. The best part of the Purusha Yoga School is that all of these specialized skills and styles are held within a pedagogy that is solidly established in the classic roots of Raja, Hatha, Jnana, Bhakti, Karma, and Tantra Yoga. Each of the key elements and Kriyas we hold most essential are explored and expressed with greater and greater depths and in more expansive ways within each course of study.
The pedagogy of the Purusha Yoga School is one that is built on meeting your clients and students where they are and as they are. You will continue to develop your ability to tap into your own inner resources and relationship to your true self as your ever-present source to serve others.
Throughout these courses, you will fine-tune your purpose and the people you wish to serve. This may change throughout your life, but it will always be held in the relationship to truth that you have nourished within.
You will be exposed to skills that enable you to create a therapeutic alliance that ensures a safe and effective space to work with individuals in a caring and professional way with equanimity and respect for all.
