Restore and Meditate Teacher Training at Westport Yoga KC

Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with Lisa Ash Drackert, RYT-500

Friday November 9- Sunday November 11, 2018

This weekend program and additional practicum is designed for yoga teachers who are deeply committed to the art of teaching yoga and want to learn to incorporate Meditation practices into their classes.

The three-pronged approach of lecture, experiential learning and practicum teaching is ideal for yoga teachers to truly hone the art of teaching.

Our program will give you the base you need to begin teaching Meditation and Restorative Yoga with best teaching practices, sound educational theory and brain-based learning models. We will learn about how the brain responds to stress, how to guide your students into the Relaxation Response and how to build your confidence to teach meditation and mantra.

Our curriculum focuses on contemplative yoga practices including Meditation, Restorative yoga and pranayama. Our practicum experience features observing, assessing and practice teaching classes at Westport Yoga KC with honest and helpful feedback/mentoring from expert teachers and colleagues. Our practicum experience will conclude spring 2019 (options are available for out of town teachers.)
