About the 75HR Teacher Training
The curriculum of this training presents 5 units, each unit is 15 hours. Thus, you will, upon successful participation, receive a certificate* of attendance for 75 hours of training in the Jivamukti Yoga method.
The Jivamukti Yoga 75 hour training is aimed to provide you with a blueprint for incorporating the physical, psychological, spiritual and mystical aspects of yoga into modern life, without losing sight of the universal goal of the practice: liberation. Jivamukti Yoga’s focus on a non-dualistic view of life (the interconnectedness of all) awakens in the practitioner not only the need to protect the environment and all the animals and plants that share the planet with us, but also teaches skills to confidently achieve those goals for oneself as well as lead others to live in harmony with the planet.
You will receive a training manual with an overview and summary of the curriculum content and with your homework assignments. The daily schedule consists of 5.5 hours of teacher training at the studio, a lunch break plus 2 hours of homework that you need to work on by yourself.
Every day of the training begins with a short meditation and an exploration into a topic of yoga philosophy and a mantra that is quintessential to the Jivamukti Yoga method. There is a daily practice of the Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior class, followed by a practical session on alignment, teaching methods, hands on assists, and/or a philosophy lecture. The focus of this training will be on teaching you how to teach and on the specific methodology of Jivamukti Yoga. This way, upon successful completion of this training, our aim is for you to be able to teach a Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior class by yourself.
As part of the curriculum of the 75 hour Jivamukti Teacher Training, our goal is for you to learn:
how to teach the exact sequence of the Jivamukti Yoga Spiritual Warrior class
how to teach the Jivamukti Magic 10 as developed by Sharon Gannon
how to apply and teach according to the art of Vinyasa Krama
how to give safe assists for the asanas within the Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior class
the foundations of the five tenets of Jivamukti Yoga (Ahimsa, Bhakti, Shastra, Nada, Dhyana)
the meaning of three Sanskrit Mantras that are quintessential to the Jivamukti Yoga method, and how to chant them
what asana practice has to do with the relationship to ourselves, and to the world around us
how to properly receive and give feedback from/to others
Prerequisites for the 75HR Teacher Training
1) PRACTICE PREREQUISITES:
Applicants must have practiced the Jivamukti Yoga Spiritual Warrior class a minimum of 10 times within the last 6 months, prior to the beginning of the orientation; and provide documentation that this prerequisite has been completed. Documentation can be provided in various ways, for example by providing MindBody class attendance printouts, or a log with dates classes were taken initialed by the teacher(s). If you are unable to practice with a local Jivamukti teacher, we invite you to access our online Spiritual Warrior classes online. Please email email@example.com to request access to these online classes.
2) READING PREREQUISITES:
Students must familiarize themselves with and have copies of the following 5 publications:
Jivamukti Yoga: Practices for Liberating Body and Mind, by Sharon Gannon and David Life.
The Art of Yoga Assists, by Sharon Gannon and David Life
Yoga and Veganism, by Sharon Gannon
Jivamukti Chant Book, by Sharon Gannon and David Life
The Magic 10 and Beyond, by Sharon Gannon
Important Notes About the Prerequisites
You must take the Jivamukti Spiritual Warrior class at least 10 times before attending the Jivamukti Yoga 75HR TT. This is a minimum, and we highly recommend you practice the sequence as much as possible to thoroughly learn what you will be teaching from the perspective of a practitioner/student. To know the sequence before the TT begins will be of great benefit for not only yourself and fellow participants, but also your future students, because it will make the training time as effective as possible.
In terms of theoretical preparation, you must at very least familiarize yourself with the content of all the required books. We recommend that you acquire them well before the training begins and begin reading or better, finish reading them prior to the first session. If you want to become a Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, reading the books which are core to the method will help to inspire you and lay the philosophical groundwork for you to be able to absorb as much of the material as possible.
Remember, all of the requirements and prerequisites have been created for the benefit of everyone involved, so in order to make the most of your time with the teachers, we ask that you invest in yourself first by giving these pre-assignments your best effort.
