In our methodology we emphasize intelligent progressions, scientifically informed sequencing and individualized instruction to best meet our students where they are in their practice. Over the course of of the program trainees will receive individualized instruction from a program mentor via private sessions where trainees are able to develop their tools as teachers. Trainees can expect to leave this training with a newfound understanding of the yoga practice, a deeper awareness of their own bodies and practice, and the ability to share yoga and movement practice with people of a large variety of body types, background and experiences.

Training will be facilitated by Sean Langhaus and Emily Lesinski with additional classes, lectures and workshops with Isaac Pena, Erin Vaughan, Sam Chase and David Rome.

Training Dates
MODULE 1
April 27-30
Anatomy of Yoga & Movement

In this Module we explore the foundations of mind, body and breath as we dive into anatomy, biomechanics and kinesiology of yoga practice. This will include workshops devoted to spinal, hip, shoulder, knee, elbow, wrist and ankle anatomy and movement. Additionally, we explore the evolution of historical yoga practices into the modern styles and philosophies that are practiced today. This immersion will also serve as an introduction to understanding the philosophy, techniques and methodology we employ in our unique teaching. In our methodology we seek to fuse tradition and innovation to offer a yoga and movement practice that is accessible to all bodies, but also offers tools for unlocking our ultimate potential. Throughout training we will explore and discuss a variety of styles of practices to help trainees develop a practice that serves them (and their students) for their own unique goals.

MODULE 2
May 18-21
Science of Strength, Flexibility & Inversion

Yoga is a practice that is often taken on because we seek tools to change; to empower ourselves to bring about great strength physically, mentally and emotionally. Over these four days we will explore concepts and practices of strength, flexibility, stability & mobility through physically demanding asana and movement. When the body is faced with stress it has the opportunity to adapt and grow to face these new challenges. In this module we’ll use the practices of deep flexibility, inversions and hand balancing as vehicles in which we can develop our bodies’ vast potential for movement and control.

MODULE 3
June 22-25
Energy & Philosophy

In this immersion we explore the concept of energy as it exists in both the physical and subtle body. The weekend portion of this training will be led by Rose Erin Vaughan as she guides us through her practice system which fuses Traditional Chinese Medicine, hatha and bhakti yoga practice. Topics will include the chakras, meridians, chanting, pranayama and acupressure techniques. The training will continue after the weekend portion with an exploration of yoga philosophy, mythology, storytelling and meditation.

MODULE 4
July 27-30
The Art of Teaching

This immersion is all about empowering yourself with the tools to be a great teacher. How do we create space for a practice that can bring about powerful change in students? We will explore sequencing ideas and progressions we use in our signature class styles at Warrior Bridge including Warrior Flow, Restorative Flow, Core Yoga and Handstand & Flexibility Training. Additionally, time will be spent on techniques and concepts for offering individualized yoga instruction to private clients. This module will also feature a series of lectures and discussions aimed at understanding the business aspects of yoga teaching and developing a sustainable teaching practice.
