The story that inspires the naming of our training program is that which describes Hanuman’s dedication to learning and his humble nature. Gifted at birth with unlimited strength, but also cursed with forgetfulness, Hanuman was rarely aware of his incredible potential. Only by surrounding himself with loving friends, and devoting himself to a cause, was Hanuman able to discover that he could lift mountains!
This story of Hanuman is one we can all relate to. The ‘Hanuman’s Tale’ yoga teacher training program is an opportunity to surround yourself with supportive, like-minded people and to realize your strengths and qualities. To uncover your potential for incorporating yoga into your lifestyle and sharing your experience with the world.
Led by Victoria Greene, and with guest lecturers visiting us along the way, Hanuman’s Tale will prepare you to teach yoga with clarity, compassion, and confidence.
This 4-month training; provides a foundation in the principles of physical postures, breathing practices, meditation, teaching techniques, and anatomy and emphasizes the philosophical underpinnings of yoga. We will meet in person for a total of 10-weekend sessions beginning in January and ending in May. Every Wednesday we will have an online meeting to discuss our work together and help you to stay on track, with support and guidance. Please be aware that this training will take up a lot of your time. Friends and family members should be in agreement with you, should you decide to participate.
If you are a future yoga teacher, or are curious about yoga and want to thoroughly deepen your understanding of it, we are proud to offer you a carefully composed schedule of training.
