The Fourfold Path of Practice and Teaching Online Immersion and Teacher Development with Christina Sell 6 Months: April 2018- September 2018 Limited to 25 Students Tuition- $600
This online immersion and teacher training is designed for 200-hour teacher training graduates who want to refine their personal practice and teaching through study, personal exploration, and direct experience. Christina Sell, known for her clarity, down-to-earth teaching style, and sense of humor has synthesized her thirty years of teaching experience in both fitness and yoga, her diverse training in spirituality and personal growth methods, and her personal insight from practice and study into a 6-month, online immersion and teacher development program.
Based on Christina’s Fourfold Path of Teaching that considers Inspiration, Information, Experience, and Integration as interconnected aspects of learning, this unique educational model will help you find joy, meaning, and fulfillment in your relationship to yourself, your practice, your teaching, and your students. This integrative approach considers yoga as an educational process that draws forth the wisdom of the Spiritual Heart, the Intellect, the Emotions, and the Body in ever-expanding and creative expressions.
Over the past few years, students have asked for a training program that would help them:
deepen their philosophical understanding,
clarify their anatomical knowledge,
enhance their ability to teach alignment in asana with both inspiration and precision,
and provide a personal learning community for support and connection.
Taught from basic principles, not rigid dogma, this program is perfect for teachers who want to learn the context of practice and teaching methods and who are willing to work with concepts over time so that they grow increasinly able to express their understanding authentically rather than mechanically.
This program is for you if:
*You want to develop yourself through practice, study,and community;
*You completed a 200-hour program that left you feeling like you just scratched the surface of yoga and teaching yoga;
*You can’t travel for trainings and workshops, and you still want to expand your knowledge and continue your education;
*Online study has been hard for you due to tie constraints, long lectures, and appointments to keep.
*You want a structure in which to learn with the freedom to incorporate the teaching according to your own individual needs and perspectives;
*You are looking for new and creative ways to approach teacher training in your community. Experienced teachers will appreciate the clarity and depth of Christina’s presentation and will find their own capacity will expand as a result of the course.
Basic Format The Online Trainingis divided into four six-week modules: 1.) Aim High, 2.) The Pulse, 3.) Life at the Core, and 4.) The Offering. The first week of each module will have a philosophical emphasis. The second week will focus on Anatomical/Alignment principles. The third week will emphasize Asana Studies.
