What is Infinite Yoga Teacher Training?
IYTT is about empowerment. Whether you are a curious student wanting to immerse yourself in yoga or an aspiring teacher this program will change your life. You will deepen your practice, discover your own voice, build the confidence to stand up in front of anyone and share the deep knowledge you have learned. It is an intense program, but Dana creates a fun and non-intimidating atmosphere with personal attention and guidance to help you learn and get results. If you love yoga and want to immerse yourself fully in practice, education and insight – this is the training for you.
IYTT is authentic. Drawing from the traditions of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar and Yoga Therapy1(Viniyoga) – all directly descended from the great yoga master Krishnamacharya, IYTT will teach you the key principles and the deep heritage that underlie these classical yoga styles. Not only will you learn the postures, how to teach and safely adjust them, but you will practice them and establish your personal connection with this 4000 year old discipline. To further deepen your knowledge, you’ll receive a comprehensive manual for each module that you can refer back to time and again. The manuals contain pictures of each posture, its name in Sanskrit & English, its benefits and instructions on how to teach it.
IYTT is unique. Whether you intend to teach or are immersing yourself in training for personal growth, IYTT’s unique quality is developing effective communication skills visually, verbally and kinesthetically. Dana Rae Paré draws from her experience as a performer along with over two decades of teaching experience. She presents her teacher training as both a science and an art. You’ll build confidence in your voice, the way you move in the world as well as understanding the anatomical aspects of postures through observing others and practicing hands-on adjustments. You’ll begin to discover your own intuition and experience the freedom of teaching cratively, in the moment – and developing your own art.
IYTT is about qualification. This course is designed for curious students and aspiring students to fully immerse themselves in yoga for 10 or 20 days. However, to become a certified yoga instructor you must study with an accredited school. Infinite Yoga is a Registered Yoga School with Yoga Alliance and able to graduate Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs). the Director of Training and principle teacher of IYTT is Dana Rae Paré who is a Registered Teacher with Yoga Alliance at their highest level – E-RYT 500. Upon completion of this training you are eligible for their Internationally recognized RYT 200 accreditation. In addition, this training prepares you to be a successful yoga teacher that stands out from the crowd. You won’t just learn how to teach a class, but how to teach a great class. You’ll get insights into the business of yoga and learn how to build a student following and a reputation – whether you want to work at a studio or own one. You’ll understand the ethics and principles of the business and how to become a true professional.
IYTT takes you deeper. Unlike weekend trainings, Infinite Yoga Intensives allow you to complete your certification in two 10-day modules, with ten consecutive days each (Please see How does it work? for specific details). The consecutive daily schedule allows you to review, progress and ask questions on a daily basis. There is a daily morning and late afternoon practice, which accelerates the learning process, helps you achieve optimum results and brings the life changing effects that come only from consistent practice. IYTT establishes you in the ancient discipline of yoga which begins with daily practice. More than a weekend warrior, this course incorporates the yoga lifestyle, leading to a healthy, conscious and inspiring life!.
If you are interested in immersing yourself in yoga for 10 or 20 days, there is no experience required. Just a love of yoga and desire to learn more.
To become a certified yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level (RYT-200) you must complete both 10-day Intensives (TTA & TTB), attend the Functional Anatomy for Yoga Teachers workshop (or equivalent), take/observe/assist in some classes and complete two book reports. You may take the entire 200 hour training in a 20 day period in the summer or begin in summer or winter and finish in winter or summer respectively. Modules TTA and TTB may be taken in any order. The latter approach enables you to use the intervening time to absorb the training and begin to apply it.
When you have completed your hours you will receive a certificate. Simply send a copy of your certification to Yoga Alliance to become a registered yoga teacher at the 200-level.
