The Forrest Yoga Continuing Education for Teachers
A five day intensive training that promotes powerful insights and provides deeper integration with your true self, helping you to become a more skilful, passionate, intelligent and authentic teacher, better equipped to deal with the challenges you and your students may meet. Teaching authentically is much more effective and compelling for both you and your students.
Teachers aspiring to improve their teaching and personal practice and those that are ready to move deeper within themselves and increase the mental acuity needed to explore the rich tapestry of Forrest Yoga. A minimum number of years of teaching experience is not required. We expect you to have the willingness, health and strength to commit to 100% of this training.
Taught by Jambo Truong, one of Ana’s few Forrest Yoga Guardians, over five days, the objective of this training is to encourage you to develop as an individual as well as to make you a more skilled, intelligent and authentic teacher. Awareness is a vital component when developing the skills necessary to teach from your own found truths. Through daily meditation, intensives and group instruction, you’ll begin to discover the voice of your own spirit, which leads to a truly authentic life path.
Meditation and Intensives
Each day starts off with a ceremony involving chanting, drumming and meditation to set the intent for the day and create the space for healing and connection to your Spirit, followed by a 2-hour intensive that will create a heightened sense of physical, emotional and spiritual awareness while challenging every muscle and cell in your body. Through carefully sequenced Forrest Yoga asanas, Jambo will open you to amazing depths and feelings of awareness. You will leave feeling cleansed, refreshed and alive. The intensives are a sanctuary where you can feel safe to open up, work through issues that may arise and go beyond your perceived limitations. You will learn about yourself and feel what it is like to have freedom in your own body and mind. The intensives are sure to bring you to new levels within your yoga practice. Injuries and special needs are addressed so that you can experience these classes as part of your own healing practice.
Training for Teaching
The afternoon sessions encompass 4-hour sessions of training and instruction. Using skill-building exercises, you’ll work with the essential elements of teaching, such as: class sequencing, explore optimal personal nutrition, work with sadhanas (spiritual exercises), learn about personal and professional ethics, effective pose sequencing, the use of safe and effective hands-on adjustments, and effective clear, concise and powerful communication, eliminating mind-dulling habitual phrases, and tone of voice as well as the continued development of a more charismatic presence and honesty in your class.
