Yoga Bloom Teacher Training requires a great deal of dedication and commitment.
Not all who begin will end the journey and become a Certified Yoga Therapist. This qualification will be part of the continuing high level of educational standards being introduced into modern medicine and health care.
You will need a total of 600 CONTACT HOURS with an approved YB LAB1000. YB LAB1000 is a 600 Hr program after you have already completed a RYS200 and have been teaching Public yoga classes (8 min class size) for more than 18 months.
The teaching skills necessary for a dedicated Yoga Therapist are qualities you need to be comfortable embodying in your own unique way.
They are qualities of your own teaching that we will incorporate into our training time together, considering when and how they can become part of the fabric you’re weaving of Yoga Therapy teaching.
Using the qualities of a teacher as a framework allows us to develop what it means to teach yoga — not just lead people through poses.
Because teaching has a deepening feeling to it — it’s a journey for both you and your students. As you continue to draw out your interests, you can use that information and experience as guideposts for them.
The goal of Yoga Bloom LAB1000 is to help you discover and develop who you are as a Yoga Therapist. This tradition is an honoured and respected practice of wholeness and wellness, and must be treated with the same care and concern as your youngest child.
Additionally, you must have the fortitude and courage to both delve deeply into the inner landscape along with the outer alignment and precision necessary to hold the body and breath stable and steadfast.
As a Yoga Therapist, it is our duty and responsibility to create a place of refuge and sanctuary that allows people the safety to discover their unique path to self healing and liberation.
YB LAB Yoga Therapy Training offers the required modules and electives that are in compliance with upcoming improvements to IAYT educational standards.
Upon graduation with 600+ Contact hours and 200+ Practicum hours + Yoga Alliance certified 200RYT:
