Service Description

Join Jessie Kates and the teachers of SHIFT YOGA for a powerful journey of deep self discovery, community and liberation. Our school offers an innovative option for study. We break our 200 Hour yoga teacher training up into 2 Tracts because we have learned through the years, the so many folks want to learn more about yoga, but don't want to teach. Our 2 Tract school allows for just that. We will spend the first 3 months exploring what it means to live a yogic lifestyle and how to use yoga philosophy and principles to guide your life. Then during the last 5 months we add the knowledge, skill and practice to teach yoga, meditation, breath work and philosophy to others in private and group settings. Students who sign up for full 200 Hour (Tract 1 & 2) will receive teaching certification. Tract 1 - Yoga Studies - May - July Learn all of the deep, rich spiritual tradition of yoga. Embark on a profound journey of deep inner self discover. Study, explore and honor the roots of yoga, gain deep philosophical wisdom that has been passed down for thousands of years. Learn how to incorporate yoga practices and wisdom into your everyday life and live a more inspired, embodied life infused with the teachings of yoga. Focus for Tract 1 -yoga history -yoga philosophy -pranayama practices -meditation -mantras and chanting -therapeutic movement Tract 2 builds upon the rich spiritual wisdom awakened in Tract 1. In Tract 2 we add education of physical and energetic anatomy and how to teach yoga poses. Our emphasis during Tract 2 is on the methodology of teaching. Focus for Tract 2 -yoga asana -physical and energetic anatomy -how to work with trauma -how to teach inclusive accessible yoga classes -how to teach beyond poses and incorporate all 8 limbs of the practice The most profound part of our schools approach is our Mentorship Program.
