SOUL.FULL SCHOOL OF YOGA
200 – HR YOGA ALLIANCE TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM WITH
AMBER SHUMAKE AND LAUREN WESSINGER
Yoga is the practice of staying awake to life, of making clear informed decisions that best support your own body, and of understanding the impermanence of it all. In this training, we hope to share this life-changing practice that has brought us home to this body and this soul time and time again. We will present the information we’ve learned on our own path of living a life of yoga both as student and teacher, and the wisdom we’ve gained from our own mentors and teachers throughout the years. We will share with you all we know to empower you to be the best teacher you can be.
.. teach what you love with love, and teach it well ..
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” — Rumi

TEACH EVERY BODY WITH CONFIDENCE
We learn by practicing. At the core of this training is the strong belief that the need for ample live teaching opportunities and constructive feedback to bolster your confidence and guide your progress in developing your teaching presence is of utmost importance. Experience teaching in individualized, small group, and whole group settings from start to finish. Enhance your voice with energy and passion to convey your teachings in a way that resonates with students’ bodies and souls. Understand how to see your students through the lens of the chakras and subtle body. Learn to approach and guide your students utilizing engaging demonstrations, precise verbal cueing, and safe, effective hands-on assists. Adapt your regular instruction to meet the needs of diverse populations including: prenatal and postnatal yoga, trauma-conscious yoga, the elderly, people with limited mobility. Learn to teach on all ends of the spectrum, from a sweaty strong class to restorative yoga.

.. This is Your SoulSpace ..
“Do get on the mat. Practice and life are not that different.” — Judith Hanson Lasater
Over the course of the six-month training, you will receive free unlimited access to all yoga classes and sauna privileges at SoulSpace Yoga Community (a $1,000 value).

Between sessions, learning will continue online through Facebook groups, conference calls, reading and reflective assignments. Each weekend is a full and robust training composed of asana, pranayama, meditation, intention setting, anatomy, philosophy and practice teaching.
THE ART OF YOGA
.. move beyond the asana ..
“Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived.” — Aadil Palkhivala
The pose is only the beginning. While we associate yoga with physical postures in the western world, asana serves as a mere starting point along the path to living your yoga. Extract meaning from the yoga sutras and integrate this knowledge in the modern world. Discover ways to weave the sacred into your everyday practice through ceremonial rituals, pranayama, meditation, and reflection. Begin to see your life as a unique masterpiece-in-progress and how yoga can serve as an artistic medium through which you can breathe your beautiful vision to life.
A FRESH TAKE ON ANATOMY
“…In order to go deeply inside ourselves, we must journey within our physical bodies.” — Leslie Kaminoff
Explore anatomy and physiology of the human body in a relevant, functional way which enhances your teaching. Internalize principles of alignment within the scope of your practice so you may teach students with precision.
