Online Course + 6 Weekend Intensive Onsite Intensive

Course Overview and Syllabus 




• • • • • •

The Arrichion Online + Onsite Teacher Training program takes an innovative approach to training yoga teachers. It consists of a 9 week online workshop style experience interspersed with 6 weekend onsite intensive (Saturday and Sunday) at our Arrichion training center in Raleigh or Charlotte, North Carolina.

HERE’S A GLIMPSE INTO WHAT THE COURSE LOOKS LIKE….


PART 1: DISCOVER: new perspectives


In this section you will be discovering yourself and others (teachers and students) through personal practice. You will be required to take 4 classes at your home studio a week. You will be given instructions each week that will push you to step outside yourself to observe and experience yoga beyond your personal practice toward the lens of a teacher. You will learn about the history and philosophy of yoga from the perspective of Alabama’s famous yogi, Bobby Ram Daz.

PART 2: PREPARE to train 


In this section you’re preparing for training (aka PRACTICE/DRILL).  You’ll study and learn by watching videos, applying what you learn to the breakdown of techniques, learning the anatomy and benefits of poses and exercises, and testing your understanding through quizzes and other activities. You will learn information that supports understanding of the technical work. It’s information you need to know to be a good teacher.

 

PART 3: TRAIN like an athlete


In this section you spend your time doing what the best athletes do better than their competitor---PRACTICE.
  The Training section is the heart of the program--60% of your time will be spent here. If you do this right, everything else is easy. Like elite athletes you will use video to learn, to show what you’ve learned, to reflect on what you’ve learned, and to improve. Your coach will provide personalized feedback on all videos. The training section will require you to move from simple to complex. In training you’re in practice mode: Drill individual techniques and poses: Slow and deliberate with focus, Pick up speed, goal is automaticity.

PART 4: TEACH the real deal 

 

Beginning with week 1, you pull it all together to teach short sequences. Teaching chained sequences of techniques and poses from simple to more complex-- some given to you and some that you create. You’ll submit video assignments of each of the sequences and will receive feedback from your coaches on the assignments. Feedback will be in the form of a video. You’ll spend time honing your skills of getting students into poses, practicing voice and timing techniques.

 

 

A Rubric gives you insight into what the coaches are looking for and helps you to prepare.

Part 4 continued...

 

You’ll also work on designing your final project—a 45 minute yoga class and a 22 minute circuit training class.

 

PART 5: COMPETE for a career

 

Every successful yoga teacher learns to think like an entrepreneur. You’ll research market opportunities. You’ll gain a greater understanding of self. You’ll think about niche competitive advantage. You’ll use proven business model tools. You’ll learn about marketing, social media, and customer service.

6 WEEKEND (SAT/SUN) ONSITE INTENSIVE

 

Each day begins with a 6 am yoga session warm-up and ends with an 8:30-9 pm cool-down (a look back at what you’ve done and a look forward at what you’ll be doing). Trust us, we’re coaches and we know how to pace immersive training sessions to maximize results.

 

One of the first things we will do is practical testing of all poses and exercises covered during the online portion of the course. Coaches and students will give feedback. The online experience greatly elevates the level of students coming into the onsite intensive. This leveling of the playing field allows us to move more quickly, to cover more in depth teaching, and to get better teaching results than a traditional program can in 21 days. 

 

A series of intensive workshops will cover adjustments and inversions. Students will be given significant time to practice adjustments on each other. Practical testing will follow.

 

For fun we have included an acro yoga workshop. This style of yoga is popular and learning about it gives students additional skills to differentiate yourself in the market. 

 

You will also expand on your business understanding. You will observe teachers in Arrichion classes. You will shadow an experienced teacher as students are checking into class and after class, noting the interactions and customer development taking place. You will also have the opportunity to interview an Arrichion client. Additional work will be done on setting up your web portfolio including a private consultation with a professional web designer.

 

There will be work on the functional anatomy for yoga with specific attention to the poses and exercises you have learned. CPR and First Aid training results in certification--a must for working professionals. 

 

The final evaluations include teaching your 45 minute yoga class and 22 minute circuit class to your fellow students and selected Arrichion members.
