Module 1: Be The Change
In this 100-hour foundational training, participants will first and foremost be immersed in deep personal practice of yoga, meditation, and discovery sessions that introduce an integrated balance of age-old wellness practices with the most innovative neuro, energetic, and psychological science of the emerging fields of wellbeing and positive psychology.
Participants will learn the 9 Principles of Personal Power and Wholeness, a self leadership experience that creates authentic, charismatic, and powerful presence as a leader in front of any audience. Before we learn to teach, we first deepen our own understanding and awareness through an expertly guided deep dive into the practices of yoga, bodywork, and wellbeing. The Rocksteady Principles of Dynamic Movement will be introduced as the guiding perspective on what yoga poses offer, when we apply them, and where they work best in a Vinyasa sequence.
At the conclusion of this 100-hour immersion, students will be able to competently teach a dynamic Vinyasa yoga class with a deep awareness of how to use each yoga asana to restore balance and neutrality to any body, while having developed an expert tool kit of self awareness tools to manage their own energy and presence at the front of a room. Module 1 teaches you how to be a self-guided yoga practitioner, shows you how to share that practice with others, and offers you the unique opportunity to become a real agent of change, empowering yourself and others to become active participants in elevating the wellbeing of ourselves and the world.
Module 2: I Have A Dream
In this 100-hour immersion training, we build on the foundation of Module 1, advancing teacher capacity to practice and teach progressive Vinyasa sequencing from the perspective of how movement impacts the neuro-myo-fascial network, with the intention of removing dysfunction, strain, and compression and creating space, function and freedom, developing the teacher repertoire of biomechanical exercises and pose breakdowns that empower students to continually explore their capacity to move, and introducing the principles and techniques of hands-on yoga assisting and restorative supported stretching.
Concurrently, students will dive into discovery work on their conceptual framework of reality; learn how to up-level state of mind and being through simple awareness practices, create new neuro patterns to consciously create a present and future worth living; and explore the most progressive new approaches to mindfulness and positive perspective. Module 2 teaches you how to manage your mindset and energy to a positive baseline; shows you how to create a chosen vision and direction for your present and future, and offers you the unique opportunity to become a community builder — a person dedicated to fostering real connection with real people to make the world a better place.

6-month Interactive Format Beginning in January 2022
Level Three is a 6-month intensive. It provides tools, structures, and a community to teachers who are ready to broaden their scope of work and professional pursuits in the wellness world. Become versed in guided self-discovery work, meditation, and program facilitation.
In this advanced training, elevate from teacher to practitioner. This training is for you when you have firmly grasped the fundamentals of crafting yoga classes that are more than just yoga poses. You are creating movement experiences that intelligently balance the musculo-skeletal system and palpably calm the neuro-fascial network, while confidently guiding people into deeper body awareness through quality hands-on assists. Now, expand your body of work to master the art of guiding meditation and visualization, develop your ability to facilitate empowering self-discovery sessions with anyone, navigating clearly with both your intellect and intuition. Discover your own inner knowing and learn how to tap your intuition to read the energy of a full room, purposefully and effectively craft workshops, trainings, programs, and events that utilize movement, meditation, and discovery in ways that are unique to your chosen calling and path.
Level Three will connect you to a tribe of seasoned practitioners who are choosing to lean into learning together, accessing a new level of collaborative leadership as you partner to unlock each others' gifts in each stage of the training. In addition to expanding your skillset to be a powerful discovery guide, a meditation and visualization teacher, and a people-first leader, you will experience Geotran, an innovative brain balancing technique that powerfully clears stress (specifically, any and all stressors blocking your and your students' ability to actualize authentic life purpose), while clearly defining your path as a person and practitioner.
